63      (raimue in r97868)
64
65    - Fix an endless loop that could be triggered in rev-upgrade when a broken

67      or it was installed directly from a Portfile not in the tree.
68      (cal in r100129, jmr in r101313)
69
70    - Set a busy timeout on SQLite connections to prevent MacPorts from
71      uselessly burning CPU cycles when waiting for a database lock.
72      (cal in r100217)

84
85    - Fixed an incorrect lint error about the port directory name when a full
86      @macports.org maintainer address is used. (#35925, ryandesign in r97264)
87
88    - Fixed creation of disk images with flat packages. (jmr in r99167)
89
90    - Fixed a bug where not all requested variants would be passed on to
91      dependencies when building an mpkg. (#36363, jmr in r100679)
92
93    - Added configure.compiler options macports-clang-3.2 and
94      macports-clang-3.3 (jeremyhu, ryandesign, jmr in r92588, r101163,
95      r101166, r101270)
96
97    - Added configure.compiler options macports-dragonegg-3.0 through

111      continue (jmr in r95382)
112
113    - Added a log message when everything to be installed has an unsatisfied
114      dependency, such as in the case of circular dependencies (jmr in r93962)
115
116    - Fixed incorrect error message when installing a port that has a
117      dependency that is not in the index (#31130, jmr in r93511)
118
119Release 2.1.1 (2012-05-19 by jmr):
120    - Fixed incorrect parsing of mirror group URLs that contain a colon to
121      indicate a port number (#32018, jmr in r93258)
122
123    - Do not print detailed progress information in rev-upgrade when stdout is
124      not a terminal (#34480, cal in r93221,r93222)
125
126    - Made rev-upgrade avoid trying to upgrade ports that are not in the index
127      (jmr in r93197)
128
129    - Fixed rev-upgrade disabling source-only mode in its first upgrade pass
130      (jmr in r93153)

136
137    - Fix database upgrade on Tiger, where SQLite doesn't support ALTER TABLE
138      ADD COLUMN (#34463, cal in r93256)
139
140Release 2.1.0 (2012-05-15 by jmr):
141    - New configure.compiler options: macports-clang-2.9, macports-clang-3.0,
142      macports-clang-3.1, macports-gcc-4.7, macports-gcc-4.8
143      (jeremyhu in r86719, ryandesign in r91521)
144
145    - Avoid using pkg-config to find sqlite3 in our configure script unless it
146      can't be found by other means, because some third-party packages
147      incorrectly install a /usr/bin/pkg-config that points to an incompatible
148      copy of sqlite3. (#30932, dluke/jmr in r91512)
149
150    - 'port pkg' and 'port mpkg' will now create flat packages (i.e. a xar
151      archive rather than a directory) on 10.6+.
152      (jmr in r91317, r91329, r91331, r91437)
153
154    - Fixed dependencies sometimes being installed multiple times when
155      required with different archs. (#31794, jmr in r91357)
156

158      archive is available for download (and port is configured to use it).
159      (jmr in r91196, r91217)
160
161    - Added new config file archive_sites.conf, which can be used to configure
162      additional archive download sources. Each source has an associated
163      archive type; portarchivetype is now only used when creating archives
164      locally. Sources also have an associated prefix, applications_dir and
165      frameworks_dir, and if any of these do not match the current values, the
166      source is not used. (jmr in r91009)
167
168    - Xcode 4.3 support: Search harder for developer directory; advise user to
169      run xcode-select when necessary, searching for Xcode and suggesting
170      xcode-select commands.
171      (jberry, jmr in r89970,r89971,r89972,r89996,r89999,r90003,r90005-r90009,
172      r90018-r90019,r90024,r90031)
173
174    - warn about non-existing developer_dir when it's set in macports.conf
175      (cal in 90802)
176
177    - port automatically installs bsdmake when there's no bsdmake in $PATH and a
178      port sets build.type bsd (#33355, cal in r90650)
179
180    - Added -W option for reinplace that sets a base directory that all file
181      arguments are interpreted as being relative to. (raimue in r90610)
182
183    - Added macports.conf options 'host_blacklist' and 'preferred_hosts', used
184      for indicating lists of download hosts that should not be used or should
185      be used preferentially, respectively. These override the usual ping time
186      check. Ping times are also now cached for 24 hours. (jmr in r89459)
187
188    - Added 'rev-upgrade' action checking for broken linkage and rebuilding
189      ports containing broken files. Made rev-upgrade run automatically after
190      each upgrade or install.
191      (cal in branch gsoc11-rev-upgrade, merge in r88376, also cal, raimue, jmr
192      in r88377,r88411,r88441,r88511,r88666,r88732,r89180,r89659,r89661,r90102,
193      r90381)
194
195    - Added options controlling rev-upgrade behavior to macports.conf
196      (jmr, cal in r88725,r88794,r89189)
197
198    - port livecheck regex finds multiple matches on the same line
199      (raimue in r88031)
200
201    - Several improvements to port lint:
202      licenses, subversion properties, maintainer addresses
203      (#30194, snc, raimue in r85929, r86016, r89428, r89610)
204
205    - Added license_noconflict option to specify dependencies for which the
206      maintainer has manually checked license compatibility and wishes to
207      overrule the conservative automated checks. (jmr in r89004)
208
209    - Xcode 4.3 support: Use xcrun -find to find xcode compiler if it's not
210      found in /usr/bin.
211      (jberry, jmr in r88540,r88541,r88546,r88777,r88779,r88787,r89359,r89984,r90028)
212
213    - Added options compiler.blacklist, compiler.whitelist, and
214      compiler.fallback; to allow blacklisting, whitelisting, and setting the
215      fallback order for configure.compiler values, respectively.
216      (#30041, jmr in r88676)
217
218    - Fix sync with subdirectory of Subversion 1.7-format working copy
219      (#33573, jmr in 86872)
220
221    - Fixed conflicts not being checked for when installing ports that have no
222      dependencies. (#31571, dports in r85382)
223
224    - dmg postflight: quote all paths to handle the increasingly frequent
225      occurrence that $HOME contains spaces (#33583, ryandesign in r84345)
226
227    - dmg postflight: adjust wording of some messages (ryandesign in r84344)
228
229    - The deprecated Portfile options svn.tag, distcheck.check and
230      livecheck.check have been removed. (raimue in r82763)
231
232    - Implement new option-replace using lsearch/lreplace. The old behavior is
233      deprecated for option-replace with only one argument, but can still be
234      found in option-strsed.
235      (raimue in r82760, r82761)
236
237    - Added 'buildfromsource' macports.conf setting, which allows permanently
238      selecting the behaviour of the -s or -b option. (jmr in r81540)
239
240Release 2.0.4 (2012-02-25 by jmr)
241    - Added -locale option for reinplace (jeremyhu in r89839)
242
243    - Xcode 4.3 support: Change home directory for MacPorts user to
244      ${prefix}/var/macports/home.
245      (jberry, jmr in r89988, r89993, r90002, r90010, r90011)
246
247    - set env(HOME) to ${workpath}/.home when building ports
248      (#31827, jmr in r89994, r90004)
249
250    - Fix use_xmkmf to honor xmkmf.env for its make Makefiles phase
251      (#31504, jeremyhu in r89537, r89538, r89539)
252
253    - Added configure.cxx setting when configure.compiler is apple-gcc-4.2
254      (jeremyhu in r80248)
255
256    - Xcode 4.3 support: added packagemaker_path macports.conf setting
257      (jmr in r90058)
258
259    - Resolve ambiguity in selection in portlists
260      (jberry in r88179, r88185)
261
262    - Xcode 4.3 support: updated default developer_dir location for 4.3
263      (jmr in r90016)
264
265    - Xcode 4.3 support: use compilers in /usr/bin instead of developer_dir
266      when possible, as the latter has proven to be volatile.
267      (jmr in r90015)
268
269    - Xcode 4.3 support: updated SDK paths for 4.3 (jmr in r90000)
270
271    - Work around broken FTP proxy support in some versions of libcurl
272      (jmr in r84351, r88045)
273
274Release 2.0.3 (2011-09-05 by raimue)
275    - Fix a regression introduced in 2.0.2 when fetching with a VCS
276      (#31073, jmr in r83471)
277
278Release 2.0.2 (2011-09-01 by jmr):
279    - Messages recommending running selfupdate will no longer be printed when
280      selfupdate is being run. (#23094, jmr in r83270, r83391)
281
282    - The PortIndex will not be regenerated during selfupdate when base is
283      outdated. This avoids failure to index ports that use features only
284      available in the current version. (#30739, jmr in r83271)
285
286    - Fixed build failures when the TMPDIR environment variable is set to a
287      directory that is not writable by the macports user.
288      (#30749, jmr in r83267)
289
290    - Fixed error when checksumming distfiles with names containing spaces.
291      (#28568, jmr in r83149)
292

294      dependents are processed before the ports they depend on.
295      (#8431, jmr in r82947)
296
297    - Fixed an issue where a non-universal version of a port could be
298      installed as a dependency as well as the universal version, with
299      unpredictable results, when some ports in the dependency graph needed
300      the universal version but others didn't. (jmr in r82924)
301
302    - Now using a temp dir inside ${prefix} when activating, as /tmp or
303      /var/folders may be on a different volume. (jmr in r82767)
304
305    - Fixed extracting portfile-only archives. (#31033, jmr in r81830)
306
307    - Fixed adduser and addgroup procedures not re-dropping privileges when
308      done. (jmr in r81630)
309
310    - Fixed error activating ports with names containing the string "cpio".
311      (#30532, jmr in r81577)
312
313Release 2.0.1 (2011-08-02 by jmr):
314    - Fixed errors when installing some archives built on a case-sensitive
315      filesystem onto a case-insensitive one. (#30373, jmr in r81562)
316
317    - Fixed users created by MacPorts showing up in the GUI in some places on
318      Lion. (#30168, jeremyhu in r81558)
319
320    - Added replaced_by pseudo-portname selector. (afb in r81475)
321
322    - Added progress output to port image conversion script.
323      (#30347, jmr in r81464)
324
325    - Now doing a better job of avoiding UID conflicts with non-local users
326      when creating the 'macports' user. (#30464, jmr in r81414, r81415) Also
327      improved Tiger compatibility in this area. (jmr in r81454, r81467)
328
329    - Fixed 'port selfupdate' exiting with non-zero status after installing a
330      new version of base. (jmr in r81371)
331
332    - Added --subports to options accepted by 'port info'. (jmr in r81234)
333
334    - Fixed incorrect info sometimes being added to PortIndex entries when
335      using subports. (#30463, jmr in r81361)
336
337    - Fixed descriptions not being shown for default variants. (jmr in r80971)
338
339    - Fixed 'port variants --index'. (jmr in r80969)
340
341Release 2.0.0 (2011-07-22 by jmr):
342
343    - Multiple ports can now be defined in one Portfile using the 'subport'
344      procedure. This reduces code duplication when several ports use very
345      similar code. (jmr in r78062)
346
347    - Privilege dropping is now on by default. The runtime user can be changed
348      when building from source but defaults to 'macports'; this user is
349      created at install time. (jmr in r79025)
350
351    - Fetching from some extremely slow or partially unresponsive servers
352      should now time out as expected. (raimue in r71038)
353
354    - The registry is now "vacuumed" (compacted/defragmented) after
355      uninstalling ports. (jmr in r70608)
356
357    - Downloaded archives are now checked for integrity using digital
358      signatures. Sync and selfupdate can also use a signed tarball. New
359      pubkeys.conf file allows configuring keys to trust.
360      (jmr in r68996, r79093)
361
362    - Added 'actinact' pseudo-portname that expands to installed ports with an
363      active version and at least one inactive version.
364      (#27666, jmr in r79421, based on patch from gmail.com:ww.galen)
365
366    - Added --size option for 'contents' action that makes it print the size
367      of each file. (#27245, jmr in r79365, based on patch from
368      gmail.com:ww.galen)
369
370    - Added 'space' action to show the disk space used by ports' active files.
371      (#27244, jmr in r79349, based on patch from gmail.com:ww.galen)
372
373    - Actions can be abbreviated to an unambiguous prefix of the full name.
374      (#27242, patch from gmail.com:ww.galen committed in r79259)
375
376    - Fixed error when activating ports whose version contains an underscore
377      followed by an integer and a dash. (#28084, jmr in r79167)
378
379    - Deactivating a port that has dependents no longer needs to be forced
380      when the dependents are all inactive. (#29505, jmr in r78086)
381
382    - New option 'add_users' has been added. Setting it will ensure that the
383      listed users are created before all operations that may require them to
384      exist. (#11563, jmr in r78660)
385
386    - 'port info --index' should be much faster and will work with the
387      'current' pseudo-port provided the port has been indexed.
388      (#13673, jmr in r78621)
389
390    - Relocation is explicitly disabled when building pkgs on 10.6, so Apple's
391      Installer won't attempt to overwrite other copies of the same software
392      not installed by MacPorts. (#25174, jmr in r78178)
393
394    - Non-Darwin platforms can once again build base against OpenSSL for
395      checksum support. (#26813, afb in r77865)
396
397    - It is now safe to set svn.post_args, rather than that option being
398      reserved for svn.url. (#27454, jmr in r73825)
399
400    - Variants specified when running 'port mpkg' are now set in the
401      dependencies as well. (#27231, jmr in r73303)
402
403    - Fixed various issues with privilege dropping.
404      (#26899, jmr in r69453 etc.)
405
406    - Trace mode no longer fails on 10.6. (#21582, jmr in r74318, r74369)
407
408    - Ports that create StartupItems (aka launchd plists) should now be
409      installable by unprivileged users. (#10879, jmr in r66700, r75143)
410
411    - Fixed incorrect output from 'port dependents' when using newer SQLite
412      versions. (#27506, patch from gmail.com:mmpestorich committed in r76827)
413
414    - The flat registry format is no longer available. Setting portdbformat to
415      'flat' in macports.conf will result in the sqlite registry being used.
416      (jmr in r77681)
417
418    - Port images are now stored as archives. Archive mode is now effectively
419      always on. Among other benefits, this fixes some bugs with the handling
420      of hard links installed by ports (e.g. #13601).
421
422      Direct mode is no longer available. Existing port image directories, and
423      installed files for direct mode, will be converted to archives when
424      upgrading.
425
426      (#19458, branch by blb, merged by jmr in r77511)
427
428    - master_site_local, patch_site_local, and archive_site_local can be set
429      in macports.conf, with the same effects as the corresponding environment
430      variables. (jmr in r74924)
431
432    - Added 'logfile' action that prints the path to a port's log file.
433      (jmr in r74655)
434
435    - Computing large dependency trees that contain the same port(s) multiple
436      times should be considerably faster. (jmr in r73133)
437
438    - New configure.compiler options: macports-gcc-4.6, macports-llvm-gcc-4.2,
439      macports-clang (jmr in r71487; mfeiri in r72936, r72937)
440
441    - Add '-n' option to reinplace (#26406, ryandesign in r73227)
442
443    - Add new ccache_dir and ccache_size options, default path is
444      ${portdbpath}/build/.ccache and a size of 2 GB.
445      (raimue in r71604, r71606)
446
447    - Add 'system -W path' which changes to the given directory before
448      executing the command.
449      (raimue in r71380, r71389)
450
451    - Add -w to build.cmd and destroot.cmd if using gnumake
452      (raimue in r71370)
453
454    - Add livecheck.ignore_sslcert; setting fetch.ignore_sslcert does no
455      longer apply to livecheck. distcheck now respects fetch.ignore_sslcert.
456      (#17063, raimue in r70975, r70979, r70982)
457
458    - Add SHA256 checksums in addition to MD5, SHA1 and RIPEMD160.
459      (afb in r57888, r57913; snc in r68955)
460
461    - Add @pkgdep lines to archives, with build-time dependencies.
462      (afb in r76919)
463
464Release 1.9.2 (2010-11-07 by jmr):
465
466    - Added more locking to avoid TOCTOU errors when running multiple port(1)
467      instances (#19935, jmr in r70174)
468
469    - Fixed -q not suppressing output from 'port lint' (#25880, jmr in r70163)
470
471    - Added a helpful message when there is a checksum mismatch and the
472      distfile appears to incorrectly be a HTML document (#25128,
473      ryandesign/jmr in r70143)
474
475    - Now checking early on if there are sufficient privileges to install,
476      and failing before building anything if not (#25671, jmr in r70135)
477
478    - Avoided possible failure when the -u option is used when upgrading a
479      port that is marked as being replaced by another (jmr in r69022)
480
481    - Using the platform-specific PortIndex when syncing using a daily tarball
482      (jmr in r68786)
483
484    - Fixed failures when fetch target is run without root privileges and the
485      port is then installed with them (#25418, #25937; jmr in r69334, r70271)
486
487    - Fixed upgrading ports where the new version differs from the old version
488      only in epoch (jmr in r69436)
489
490    - Fixed [un]setrequested when using the flat registry format
491      (#26352, jmr in r69387)
492
493    - Fixed checking for conflicting ports before installation
494      (#25386, jmr in r69105)
495
496    - Now gracefully handling distfiles that use a tag that is not
497      associated with any sites (#25332, jmr in r68965)
498
499    - Fixed running 'port deps' on multiple ports, and changed its output
500      format back to how it was in 1.8 (#25324, jmr in r68950)
501
502    - Fixed premature privilege dropping (#25331, jmr in r68952)
503
504Release 1.9.1 (2010-06-18 by jmr):
505    - Fixed a couple of problems with new 1.9 features when using the flat
506      registry format (jmr in r68910, r68913)
507
508    - Ports using the replaced_by option will once again be deactivated when
509      an upgrade is performed on them (#25270, jmr in r68872)
510
511    - Fixed the possibility of some empty directories being left behind when
512      a port is deactivated (#25268, jmr in r68864)
513
514    - Fixed failure to detect conflicts with files that are not provided by
515      a port before activation starts (#25255, jmr in r68849)
516
517    - Fixed problems with distfile names containing spaces (#25245, #25246;
518      jmr in r68816, r68817)
519
520    - Fixed a problem with uninstall when using direct mode, and started
521      running pre/post activate and deactivate procedures when installing and
522      uninstalling in direct mode, respectively (#11562, jmr in r68697)
523
524    - fixed a crasher that affected Tiger (#25194, jmr in r68675, r68680,
525      r68691)
526
527Release 1.9.0 (2010-06-08 by jmr):
528
529    - It is no longer possible to use include statements in Portfiles
530      (raimue in r68206)
531
532    - Command line options can be abbreviated if unambiguous
533      (raimue in r66837)
534
535    - Added a new variable 'os.subplatform'. When os.platform is darwin, the
536      subplatform is either 'macosx' or 'puredarwin'.
537
538    - 'platform' no longer creates a variant, instead it executes the code in
539      the body immediately if the current platform matches the one specified.
540
541    - Using a Portfile with a modification date in the future now causes an
542      informative error early on, instead of just discarding the workdir at
543      the start of every phase. (#24717, raimue in r65246)
544
545    - Fetching from servers that require a cookie to be set now works.
546      (#24584, raimue in r66785)
547
548    - Fixed an error when everything is deleted from the patchfiles list.
549      (#24178, raimue in r65243)
550
551    - Added 'license:' pseudo-port selector. (#24123, perry in r65033)
552
553    - Added new fetch.type 'bzr'. (#23436, perry in r65096)
554
555    - Added 'rdeps' and 'rdependents' actions, recursive versions of 'deps'
556      and 'dependents' respectively. Also added 'depof:', 'rdepof:',
557      'dependentof:' and 'rdependentof:' pseudo-port selectors, for specifying
558      the ports that are dependencies or dependents of the given port.
559      (#22346, jmr in r65858/r66198)
560
561    - Updated the description of the search action in the port(1) man page.
562      (#23749, jmr in r66670)
563
564    - Dry-run now uses /dev/null as the statefile, which prevents a couple of
565      problems involving locking and variant checks.
566      (#21794, #21962; jmr in r66921)
567
568    - The list of dependencies to be installed is now displayed immediately
569      after computing them. (#21540, jmr in r66321)
570
571    - The quick index is now reloaded after syncing in interactive mode, which
572      prevents errors due to it not matching the updated PortIndex.
573      (#20874, jmr in r66319, refinement of patch from carrel.org:edward)
574
575    - The architectures of dependencies are checked when installing a port. If
576      a dependency does not provide the required arch(s), it is rebuilt with
577      +universal if that is possible and will help, otherwise the install fails
578      and an error message explains why. (#20728, jmr in r65087)
579
580    - New supported_archs option allows ports to indicate which architectures
581      they can be built for. The default values of configure.build_arch and
582      configure.universal_archs change based on this list. Set this to
583      'noarch' if a port installs only architecture-independent files.
584      (#20739, jmr in r64372/r64945)
585
586    - Declaring a variant that requires one or more other variants will now
587      correctly set the required variants, so they can be checked with
588      variant_isset. (#19224, jmr in r66642)
589
590    - 'port outdated' now indicates the reason why a port that appears to have
591      the same version as that in the tree is considered outdated. Possible
592      reasons are that the epoch is higher, or the installed version was built
593      on a different OS version. (#19138, jmr in r64960)
594
595    - Distfile names are now percent-escaped in the download URLs when needed.
596      (#18736, jmr in r66794)
597
598    - buildnicevalue is now applied to configure and destroot commands, and to
599      build commands with unusual names. (#18304, raimue in r65076/r65808)
600
601    - Removed hardcoded /opt/local prefix from the base dmg resources.
602      (#17633, jmr in r66776)
603
604    - Fixed an error that occurred when archive mode was enabled but
605      ${prefix}/var/macports/packages did not exist. (#17579, jmr in r66775)
606
607    - Syncing rsync sources now tries to get a platform-specific version of
608      the PortIndex from the server, and skips this if the local copy is less
609      than a day old. All sync methods now update the PortIndex at the end.
610      (#17157, jmr in r66846/r67207)
611
612    - portindex(1) now skips parsing Portfiles whose modification time is
613      older than the current PortIndex, instead reusing the existing entry.
614      (#16235, jmr in r66845)
615
616    - Added a 'requested' flag to the registry that indicates which ports were
617      installed explicitly (as opposed to as a dependency of something else).
618      This enables the new 'requested', 'unrequested' and 'leaves' pseudo-
619      ports, as well as the --follow-dependencies option for uninstall.
620      The setrequested and unsetrequested actions will set and clear the flag,
621      respectively.
622      (#15260, jmr in r64517, r64663, r65546, r66037, r66200, r66215)
623
624    - The macports1.0 directory is now installed to
625      ${prefix}/share/macports/Tcl rather than /Library/Tcl. A symlink will be
626      installed in the old location if there is nothing there already, so
627      'package require macports' will still work in tclsh.
628      (#12943, jmr in r65055)
629
630    - Added warning and error messags when Xcode is old enough to cause
631      problems or too old to use at all, respectively. (#12794, jmr in r66771)
632
633    - Removed the rather outdated copy of sqlite3 from the source tree, made
634      the sqlite3 directory configurable, and added defaults for non-darwin
635      platforms. (#12231, jmr in r64358/r64363)
636
637    - There is a new 'archivefetch' target which is run before unarchive when
638      archive mode is enabled, and attempts to download the archive from a
639      server. There are currently no sites configured to download from (these
640      are stored in the ports tree like the mirror sites used for fetch), but
641      you can set ARCHIVE_SITE_LOCAL in the environment. Note that there is no
642      integrity checking for archives yet. (#8571, jmr in r64816)
643
644    - Now recording negative variants in the registry, which stops deselected
645      variants from being reactivated on upgrade due to default_variants or
646      variants.conf settings. (#2377, jmr in r64533)
647
648    - Added support for pre- and post- procedures for the activate, deactivate
649      and uninstall targets. This feature requires portdbformat sqlite. There
650      was limited support for pre- and post-activate previously, but the
651      procedures were only run when installing the port, not when activating
652      an inactive version. (#1068, #4228, #18273; jmr in r64638/r64639)
653
654    - Integrated the sqlite-based registry2.0 code. The portdbformat variable
655      in macports.conf can be set to 'sqlite' to enable it. Existing flat
656      receipts will be converted the first time port(1) is run with sufficient
657      privileges. Original code by sfiera, fixed and integrated by jmr in
658      r63398 and following. The new format lacks a number of problems that the
659      old one suffers from, including #13054 (dependencies from old port
660      versions stick around across upgrades) and #14123 (files whose paths
661      differ only in case are left behind when uninstalling).
662
663    - Fixed file list in +CONTENTS file in archives. (#21864, jmr in r59882)
664
665    - Fixed a few issues reported with building MacPorts on Linux. (#22716)
666
667    - Upgrade will now always choose the port that is active when following
668      dependencies that could be satisfied by more than one port and more than
669      one of these is installed, instead of choosing the one actually named in
670      the depspec. (#23921, jmr in r60883)
671
672    - Extracting from a disk image ("use_dmg yes") no longer fails when there
673      is a space in $worksrcdir. (#23456, raimue in r67089)
674
675    - Added a configure.sdkroot option which can be used to build against a
676      Mac OS X SDK. It is empty by default unless the value of
677      macosx_deployment_target is not the current OS version, or the universal
678      variant is set and the current platform is PowerPC Tiger. It is also
679      possible to set macosx_deployment_target globally in macports.conf now,
680      but this is unsupported. (#19875, jmr in r66924)
681
682    - Add "fs-traverse -tails" which only returns the part following the
683      specified directory (#21873, raimue in r65785)
684
685    - Allow gcc45 port to be used in configure.compiler (ryandesign in r62223)
686
687    - svn checkouts now use peg revisions instead of operative revisions,
688      so they'll continue to work if a repository gets reorganized
689      (#20777, ryandesign in r60573)
690
691    - Print the location of the log file when a target fails (jmr in r60769)
692
693    - Use CommonCrypto/CommonDigest instead of OpenSSL libcrypto.
694      (toby in r58131, jberry in r59715)
695
696    - New "patch.type gnu" for GNU patch, similar to "build.type gnu"
697      for GNU make. Only makes a difference for BSD patch and BSD make.
698      (afb in r58020)
699
700    - Updated the FreeBSD package (ObjC/Foundation is now optional).
701      (afb in r57889)
702
703    - Don't use "make -j1" for build.jobs=1, but prefer "make" instead.
704      (afb in r57998)
705
706    - Add new "use_xz yes" port option to allow distfiles in xz format.
707      (afb in r57827)
708
709    - Archive mode now uses build_arch in archive names rather than os.arch.
710      (snc in r58977)
711
712    - Add new log command and keeping of debug output for easy access
713      after port has run (GSoC 2009 logging project by enl, merged in r60372)
714
715    - Some of the build_arch flags now appear in LDFLAGS as well, fixing
716      several ports when building for a different architecture (jeremyhu in
717      r60662, jmr in r60680)
718
719    - Fixed 'merge' proc for paths with spaces, and for symlinks on Snow
720      Leopard, and added an error message for when 'merge' is not called
721      correctly (#21852, ryandesign in r58776, r58777, r58778)
722
723Release 1.8.2 (2010-01-01 by jmr):
724
725    - Fixed 'port load' for non-root installations (#21713, jmr in r60774)
726
727    - Fixed a bug that could cause port to hit the open file limit
728      (#22959, jmr in r61770)
729
730    - Fixed an error when installing from source or selfupdating on Tiger with
731      an svn-based ports tree (#20760, jmr in r61302)
732
733    - Fixed an error when selfupdating as root with a prefix that is not owned
734      by root (#21010, jmr in r60798)
735
736    - Stopped uninstall from failing when files in the port image have already
737      been deleted (#22001, jmr in r59318, r59654)
738
739    - Stopped printing command output multiple times on failure (#21084,
740      jmr in r60770)
741
742    - Started showing bug reporting instructions on failure (jmr in r60770)
743
744    - Fixed a bug where 'port dmg' could create too small an image and run out
745      of space (#22404, jmr in r60260)
746
747    - Fixed a bug where reinplace could fail when running port without root
748      privileges (#20896, jmr in r59597)
749
750    - Started setting our own umask since Snow Leopard makes us inherit
751      the user's even when using sudo (#21389, jmr in r59585)
752
753Release 1.8.1 (2009-09-28 by jmr):
754
755    - Installer error messages now display properly even from the Snow Leopard
756      MacPorts dmg. (jmr in r56448)
757
758    - 'fetch.type svn' no longer requires the installation of the subversion
759      port as of Snow Leopard. (toby in r56160; raimue in r56162)
760
761    - Updated manpages and 'port help' output (ryandesign in r56472, r56473,
762      r56474; blb in r56666, r57048, r57131)
763
764    - Fixed syncing using the daily tarball. (#21034, toby in r56889)
765
766    - Fixed 'port load' (#21128, raimue in r57055)
767
768    - Improved error message when an expression on the command line does not
769      match any ports (jmr in r57026)
770
771    - Stopped recording the completion of the install phase in the
772      statefile, which led to errors if the port was uninstalled but the work
773      dir was not cleaned, and the port was then installed again.
774      (jmr/raimue in r57801, 57820)
775
776Release 1.8.0 (2009-08-28 by jmr):
777    - There is now a 'build_arch' variable, available in portfiles and
778      configurable in macports.conf, which sets the CPU architecture that
779      ports should be compiled for (when not building universal). Its default
780      is the same as that of the Apple-supplied /usr/bin/gcc.
781      (#19874, jmr in r53217,r53386,r53420,r53494,r53860,r54236)
782
783    - MacPorts base now works on and has appropriate default settings for
784      Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. (#19874, toby/mww/jkh in r38271,r40060,
785      r40836,r43976,r52397)
786     
787    - MacPorts now requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later. (Panther is not
788      just "unsupported", it really won't work.)
789
790    - The universal_sysroot and universal_target keys have been removed from
791      macports.conf. These settings are now handled automatically.
792      (toby in r52324)
793
794    - Added a 'replaced_by' portfile option. This causes upgrade to deactivate
795      the current port and install the port specified by this option. This
796      also allows ports to be renamed. Upgrade accepts a --no-replace option
797      which disables this behaviour. (#20157, jmr in r54378)
798
799    - The upgrade action now accepts --force and --enforce-variants options.
800      The former causes ports to be rebuilt even if they are not outdated, and
801      the global -f option no longer has this effect (it had too many effects
802      already). The latter causes ports to be rebuilt if the requested
803      variants do not match those installed (even if they are not outdated).
804      (#20156, jmr in r54376)
805
806    - Dependencies can be satisfied by ports that are installed but not
807      available in the ports tree (useful for testing uncommitted ports).
808      (jmr in r52075, r52160)
809
810    - Ports that are installed but not available in the ports tree no longer
811      cause an error when running commands like 'port clean installed'. They
812      are skipped and a warning is printed. (#19253, jmr in r50865)
813
814    - Selfupdate no longer disables readline support unless readline is found
815      in /usr/local, which has historically caused failures.
816      (#19035, jmr in r50868)
817
818    - Uninstalling a port that is not installed now produces an informational
819      message rather than an error. (#18984, jmr in r53709)
820
821    - Added a 'conflicts' portfile option. Conflicting ports will be detected
822      during dependency calculation. (#18794, blb/jmr in r51525)
823
824    - 'port selfupdate' now explicitly states precisely what it does. (#18512)
825
826    - Operating system and architecture information is now shown in debug
827      output. (#18435, raimue in r46669)
828
829    - Fixed a bug that could break some symlinks to man pages. (#18302)
830
831    - Switched to a more efficient algorithm for looking up port information
832      in the index, which makes many operations faster.
833      (#18259, jmr/blb in r47110)
834
835    - MacPorts base now tries to avoid using commands that come from ports, so
836      that a broken port can't break the base code. (#18149)
837
838    - Deleting all the contents of a portfile option no longer unsets the
839      option entirely. (#17865, toby in r44901)
840
841    - Removed the code that upgrades from the old DarwinPorts filesystem
842      layout. Trying to upgrade to 1.8.0+ from a version older than 1.5.0 will
843      produce an error message saying you need to install 1.7.1 first.
844      (#17619, jmr in r53260)
845
846    - port(1) now reports its version as dotted-decimal rather than floating
847      point. (#17420)
848
849    - Dependencies are now always obtained by parsing the Portfile and not
850      from the PortIndex, since the latter can't provide expanded variables
851      like $prefix which may be used in path: depspecs. (#17182)
852
853    - Newline characters in long_description can no longer cause receipt
854      corruption. (#16619, blb in r50663)
855
856    - Now unlocking the filemap when it is not in use. This allows e.g.
857      'port contents' to be run while another port instance is performing
858      installs. Note that running more than one simultaneous port instance
859      that will modify the registry can easily fail, though hopefully
860      without corrupting anything. (#16246, jmr in r51133)
861
862    - Removed some irrelevant debug output that was being printed when a port
863      failed. (#16203, jmr in r53706)
864
865    - Added new depends_fetch and depends_extract options, for dependencies
866      that are needed to fetch or extract the port, respectively.
867      (#15161, jmr in r51780)
868
869    - Packages (including the one for MacPorts base) now correctly indicate
870      that they can only be installed on the root volume.
871      (#14809, jmr in r53250)
872
873    - Using an alternative fetch or extract type now adds appropriate
874      dependencies automatically, e.g. 'use_zip yes' adds a dep on unzip, and
875      'fetch.type svn' adds a dep on subversion. (#13981, jmr in r43782)
876
877    - port(1) should now exit with an appropriate status code when an error is
878      encountered. Use the -p option to continue despite errors.
879      (#13918, jmr in r53704)
880
881    - Proxy information can now be obtained from System Preferences and from
882      macports.conf. The older method using environment variables no longer
883      works out of the box on Leopard due to changes that Apple made to the
884      default /etc/sudoers. (#13158, blb in r47194)
885
886    - Improved handling of malformed variant definitions.
887      (#12596, jmr in r50719, r50721)
888
889    - Cope a little better with missing receipt files. (#19540, jmr in r51138)
890
891    - Fixed a major memory leak in the filemap code.
892      (#12022, pguyot in r51419)
893
894    - Improved the logic for determining whether phases can be skipped. This
895      fixes the specific problems of being unable to build packages of ports
896      that are installed, port not running specific phases (e.g. build)
897      when told to if the port is installed, and inactive dependencies being
898      rebuilt instead of simply activated. (#10881, #16260, jmr in r50490)
899
900    - When archive mode is enabled, ports will no longer be rebuilt if an
901      archive is available. (#10785, jmr in r50416)
902
903    - Activating a port will now first deactivate any other version of the
904      same port that is already active. (#10571, jmr in r53711)
905
906    - Added a 'license' portfile option, which is displayed in 'port info'
907      output. (#7493, jmr in r50801)
908
909    - port lint recognizes new top-level category php (#19329, ryandesign)
910
911    - Do not print header lines when the quiet option -q is set
912      (raimue in r48558)
913
914    - svn.tag is deprecated, use svn.revision instead (raimue in r48222-48223)
915
916    - port -i option has been removed (blb in r48218)
917
918    - ui_warn logs to stderr instead of stdout (raimue in r48217)
919
920    - Remove --pretend option for port selfupdate, use global dry-run option
921      instead (raimue in r48125)
922
923    - port(1) option -y for dry-run (#11892, gwhitney/jmr in r43726)
924
925    - New pseudo-port 'obsolete' to identify ports which are installed but no
926      longer in the PortIndex (raimue in r47253)
927
928    - MacPorts can now perform fetch, extract, patch, configure and build in a
929      user rather than system owned location. By default, this is
930      ~/.macports/opt. This allows MacPorts to do all but the install of the
931      port without root privileges. (gsoc08-privileges)
932
933    - MacPorts can now automatically drop privileges so as to avoid running as
934      root whenever possible. To enable this, pass the desired user to run as
935      to configure with the --with-macports-user option. (gsoc08-privileges)
936
937    - The Portfile format has a number of new boolean attributes to indicate
938      when an action should or should not be run with root privileges:
939      'patch.asroot', 'build.asroot', 'configure.asroot', 'destroot.asroot',
940      and 'install.asroot'. The default for all is "no". If the prefix folder
941      (by default /opt/local) is not writable, MacPorts will attempt to
942      elevate privileges to root for the install phase. (gsoc08-privileges)
943
944    - A "make group" command has been added to the Makefile and a
945      "--with-shared-directory" switch to the configure script. Running "make
946      group" will create a macports group. "--with-shared-directory" will let
947      let the group specified by "--with-install-group" have full read write
948      access to the /opt/local hierarchy. This will allow users who are
949      members of the new macports group to have full write permissions to
950      /opt/local and its subfolders, and hence to install ports which only
951      affect that hierarchy without requiring root privileges.
952      (gsoc08-privileges)
953
954    - A switch called "--with-no-root-privileges" has been added for use by
955      user installing MacPorts for their own use only. An example configure
956      command would be "./configure
957      --prefix=/Users/{your-user-name-here}/.macports/opt
958      --with-no-root-privileges" (gsoc08-privileges)
959
960    - Add several new options to port search, looks in name and description by
961      default (#15434, raimue)
962
963    - Add xpkg package type, xar-based format with XML. (afb)
964
965    - Split portpkg creation out from portsubmit phase. (afb)
966
967    - Make dependencies displayed in port info respect variants
968      specified in variants.conf; collapse port deps to be an alias
969      for port info with appropriate flags. Note this changes output
970      format of port deps somewhat.  (#11891, gwhitney in r44340)
971
972    - Make dependencies in port upgrade respect variants as specified
973      (in order of precedence) on command line, latest installed
974      version, or variants.conf .  (#8221, gwhitney in r44362)
975
976    - Add select action, which integrates *_select tools into port.
977      (#17477, perry)
978
979    - The variants action additionally shows default variants, conflicting
980      variants and variants' dependencies. (#14178, #15628, perry)
981
982    - Implicit variants (e.g., darwin) can no longer be explicitly
983      set/unset. (#12563, perry in r46938, jmr in r53371)
984
985Release 1.7.1 (2009-03-28 by raimue):
986    - Trailing slashes are stripped from the prefix passed to configure, which
987      prevents incorrect mtree violation warnings. (#13789)
988
989    - Fix freshmeat-based livecheck (#18887)
990
991    - Fix issue on direct-mode installs where checking for installed ports
992      wasn't properly looking (it only matched for revision 0 and no
993      variants) (#17762)
994
995    - Add new "use_7z yes" port option to allow distfiles in 7z format
996      (#18521, ryandesign)
997
998    - port lint no longer requires variable master_sites if the port has no
999      distfiles (#18479, ryandesign)
1000
1001    - Upgrade will no longer accept ports that are not installed (but it still
1002      installs new ports as dependencies if needed). In particular, this means
1003      that "port upgrade all" will no longer proceed to install every
1004      available port. (jmr in r46052)
1005
1006    - Add mkdtemp Tcl command to create temporary directories. (#17181, perry)
1007
1008    - Add 'apple-gcc-4.2' option to configure.compiler (#18426, ryandesign)
1009
1010    - Create ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} in destroot
1011      automatically (r45614, raimue)
1012
1013    - Make the postflight procedure a bit smarter about which login files
1014      to update for bash and tcsh (#17588)
1015
1016    - Add error messages to package installers when the wrong OS package
1017      is being installed (#13141)
1018
1019Release 1.7.0 (2008-12-13 by blb):
1020    - Global variant descriptions using variant_descriptions.conf in the new
1021      resources directory in the ports tree (#14482, raimue)
1022
1023    - Move port resources into the ports tree (#14553, raimue and blb)
1024
1025    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
1026
1027    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
1028
1029    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
1030
1031    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
1032      --nitpick is used (#14799)
1033
1034    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
1035
1036    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
1037
1038    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
1039      phases (#11897)
1040
1041    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
1042      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
1043
1044    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
1045      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
1046      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
1047      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
1048
1049    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
1050      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
1051      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
1052      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
1053      in r38683)
1054
1055    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
1056
1057    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
1058      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
1059      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
1060
1061    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
1062      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
1063      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
1064      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, r37621)
1065
1066    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
1067      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
1068      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
1069      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
1070
1071    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
1072      (#15577, afb in r37501)
1073
1074    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
1075
1076    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
1077      running (raimue)
1078
1079    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
1080      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
1081      jmr in r37217, r37255)
1082
1083    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
1084      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
1085      r37121)
1086
1087    - Stopped 'port -R upgrade' from processing more ports than it should, and
1088      from processing ports multiple times. (#10827, jmr in r37046)
1089
1090    - Don't include build.nice and build.jobs in destroot.cmd (#15295)
1091
1092    - The default universal variant is no longer added when we know it won't
1093      work. (#12170, jmr in r36764)
1094
1095    - During upgrade, if the latest installed version of a port is not active,
1096      the currently active version (if any) is now deactivated before trying
1097      to activate the latest version. (#12013, jmr in r36762)
1098
1099    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is
1100      inactive and there is at least one other version of the same port
1101      installed (#11501, jmr in r36747)
1102
1103    - Duplicate entries can no longer build up in the dependency map (#8763,
1104      jmr in r36745)
1105
1106    - In image mode, dependencies are no longer treated as being satisfied
1107      when the satisfying port is not active (#7361, jmr in r36735)
1108
1109    - Fixed a bug where upgrade could create too many nested subdirectories
1110      in distpath, archive.destpath and unarchive.srcpath (#11971, jmr in
1111      r36679, r36687, r36688)
1112
1113    - Declaring a dependency on a nonexistent port now always causes an error
1114      (#10768, jmr in r36648)
1115
1116    - Explicitly use unsetenv(3) on all environment variables (#13930, #16010,
1117      #16233)
1118
1119    - Make the included tclthread compile on Leopard if configured (#13495)
1120
1121    - Allow distfiles to be disk images with "use_dmg yes" port option (#13509,
1122      ryandesign in r36708)
1123
1124    - ruby.setup now takes a type 'fetch' to just fetch/extract (eridius in r35773)
1125
1126    - Fetch now prefers mirrors with lower ping times (#14891, jmr in r35748,
1127      r35806, r35808)
1128
1129    - Fetching of daily snapshot tarballs of the ports tree as an alternative to rsync
1130      (raimue in r35647, r35648)
1131
1132    - port uninstall now takes --follow-dependents to uninstall all dependents
1133      (#14637, eridius/raimue in r34977, r35042, r36160)
1134
1135    - New fetch.type git (#14232, eridius in r34875)
1136
1137    - fixed "port mdmg" getting block size wrong for the disk image (#13968, afb in r34844)
1138
1139    - always set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, to avoid bugs with older glibtool (afb in r34541)
1140
1141    - port lint now checks all dependencies so that the ports actually exist (#14380)
1142
1143    - added target_state to avoid the need for privileges for lint/livecheck (#13458)
1144
1145    - Overhauled output for port info/deps/dependents/search (raimue in
1146      r34354, r34371, r34391, r34395, r34402, r34420)
1147
1148    - Revert the default +universal MDT/SDK to 10.4/10.4u on Tiger and 10.5/10.5 on Leopard
1149
1150    - port lint shouldn't require variable master_sites for fetch.type != standard (#14377)
1151
1152    - Add "tcldoc" documentation comments and "tcldox" Doxyfile for doxygen (#12048)
1153
1154    - Add --pretend and --nosync flags to selfupdate (raimue in r33938, r33939,
1155      r33940, r33941)
1156
1157    - Work around autoconf X11 detection bugs on darwin (afb in r33717)
1158
1159    - Fix bugs with X11 lib detection on Leopard (#14089, afb in r33716)
1160
1161    - Add configure.{optflags,m32,m64,march,mtune} (afb in r33503, r33599)
1162
1163    - Add applications_dir and frameworks_dir configuration (r33499, r33722)
1164
1165    - Remove some hardcoded paths (such as /usr/X11R6, /usr/bin/install) (afb in r33501, r33619, r33620)
1166
1167    - Add configure.{universal_target,universal_sysroot,universal_archs} (afb in r33478).
1168
1169    - Change default +universal platform back to: 10.4/10.4u.sdk/i386 ppc (r33087, r33107).
1170
1171    - Add `port platform` info action that outputs current platform (#12302, afb in r32724).
1172
1173    - Enable 64 bit environment, ppc64 x86_64, for all +universal builds (mww in r32194).
1174
1175    - Add 'merge' function for merging multiple (single arch) destroots into one (universal)
1176      destroot (mww in r31954).
1177
1178    - If checksum is mismatched, and in verbose mode, present a corrected pre-fabricated checksum statement
1179      to make it easy to update a port (jberry in r32441).
1180
1181    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_prefix"" runtime error on Panther
1182      (eridius in r32525).
1183
1184    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_channels"" runtime error on Panther
1185      (eridius in r32514).
1186
1187    - "port lint" now recognizes non-canonical modelines (afb in r32480).
1188
1189    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
1190
1191    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
1192      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_version (jmpp in r32353).
1193
1194    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents
1195      (jmpp in r32336).
1196
1197    - Fixed a Panther build failure due to missing sqlite headers (jmpp in r32212).
1198
1199    - Fixed a build failure by passing the base/src/cregistry/cregistry.a archive through ranlib (jmpp in r32105).
1200
1201
1202Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
1203
1204    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
1205      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
1206      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
1207      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
1208
1209    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
1210      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
1211
1212    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
1213
1214    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
1215      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
1216
1217    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
1218      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
1219      (#10651, jberry in r31139, r31140).
1220
1221    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
1222      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
1223      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
1224      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).
1225
1226    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
1227
1228    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
1229      multiple files (mww in r31028)
1230
1231    - add optional configure.pipe output (afb in r29604 & r30824)
1232
1233    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)
1234
1235    - add configure.[awk|bison|pkg_config|pkg_config_path] (r30761)
1236
1237    - Auto-mode for number of parallel build threads (if number of jobs is set to "0") (r30739)
1238
1239    - Add option use_parallel_build [yes|no] to declare if a port can be built in parallel (r30714).
1240
1241    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).
1242
1243    - Display warnings when using old versions of Mac OS X and Xcode Tools
1244      (#12794, afb in r30338 & r30477)
1245
1246    - Remove configure.macosx_deployment_target, add global macosx_deployment_target
1247      (eridius in r30396).
1248
1249    - add support for LZMA compression, for making .tlz archives (afb in r30307)
1250
1251    - add configure.[perl|python|ruby] for interpreters, .install for avoiding breakage
1252      due to coreutils, .libs
1253
1254    - added startupitem.netchange boolean flag (#12931, N_Ox in r30086).
1255
1256    - added generic GNU livecheck (N_Ox in r29812).
1257
1258    - fixed bug where all .mpkg packages were missing their welcome page (afb in r29517)
1259
1260    - better defaults for implicit ui_channels behaviour (eridius in r29498).
1261
1262    - prevent creating PKG packages with /etc or /var or /tmp (#2102, afb in r29445)
1263
1264    - add optional configure.ccache and configure.distcc filters (#5390, afb in r29438)
1265
1266    - Explicitly sort fs-traverse so it behaves predictably on Linux systems
1267      (#12622, eridius in r29412).
1268
1269    - add configure.objc/objcflags for Objective-C
1270
1271    - add optional build.nice (0) and build.jobs (1) modifiers (afb in r28634 & r28673)
1272
1273    - make tclobjc1.0 compile with GNUstep and NXConstantString class (afb in r28668)
1274
1275    - fix bsdmake/gnumake defaults for FreeBSD and Linux platforms (afb in r28660)
1276
1277    - port lint command, for Portfile verification (#463, afb in r28170)
1278
1279    - add configure.macosx_deployment_target for configure flags
1280
1281    - add configure.javac/classpath for Java
1282
1283    - add configure.fflags/fcflags/f90flags for Fortran flags
1284
1285    - Mark "python" group code as deprecated
1286
1287    - Add group code for Python 3.0
1288
1289    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
1290
1291    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
1292      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
1293
1294    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
1295
1296    - Chris Pickel's GSoC2007 work: registry2.0 & cregistry (mainly r27518 & r27520)
1297
1298    - Eugene Pimenov's GSoC2007 work: Trace lib on unix sockets (r26682).
1299
1300    - Elias Pipping's GSoC2007 work: merge.rb on his personal /users/pipping svn dir.
1301
1302
1303Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
1304
1305    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
1306      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
1307      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
1308
1309
1310Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
1311
1312    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
1313      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
1314
1315    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
1316      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
1317
1318    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
1319
1320    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
1321      (mww in r27199).
1322
1323    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
1324
1325    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
1326
1327    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
1328
1329    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
1330      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
1331
1332    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
1333
1334    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
1335
1336    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
1337
1338
1339Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
1340
1341    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
1342      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
1343      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
1344      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
1345      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
1346
1347    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
1348
1349    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
1350
1351    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
1352      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
1353      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
1354      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
1355      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
1356
1357    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
1358
1359    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
1360      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
1361
1362    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
1363
1364    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
1365      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
1366
1367    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
1368      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
1369      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
1370      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
1371      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
1372      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
1373
1374    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
1375
1376    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
1377
1378    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
1379
1380    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
1381      to detect problems between required and negated variants
1382      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
1383
1384    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
1385      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
1386      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
1387      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
1388
1389    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
1390      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
1391
1392    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
1393      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
1394      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
1395
1396    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
1397      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
1398         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
1399         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
1400      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
1401      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
1402      (jberry r25795).
1403
1404    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
1405
1406    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
1407      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
1408      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
1409
1410    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
1411      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
1412
1413    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
1414      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
1415
1416    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
1417      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
1418      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
1419      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
1420      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
1421      (boeyms in r25310)
1422
1423Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
1424
1425    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
1426
1427Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
1428
1429    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
1430
1431    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
1432      This allows information about variants to be displayed (e.g. dependencies).
1433      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
1434      (eridius r25255).
1435
1436    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
1437
1438    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
1439      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
1440      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
1441
1442    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
1443      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
1444
1445    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
1446      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
1447      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
1448      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
1449      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
1450      (boeyms r25110)
1451
1452    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
1453      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
1454      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
1455      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
1456
1457    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
1458
1459    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
1460      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
1461
1462    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
1463      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
1464
1465    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
1466
1467    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
1468      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
1469
1470    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
1471      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
1472      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
1473      (jberry r25146)
1474
1475    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
1476         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
1477         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
1478         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
1479           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
1480           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
1481
1482        Example:
1483
1484            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
1485                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
1486            }
1487
1488        (jberry r25147)
1489
1490    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
1491      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
1492
1493
1494Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
1495
1496    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
1497      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
1498      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
1499      it differently.
1500
1501    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
1502      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
1503      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
1504      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
1505      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
1506
1507    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
1508      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
1509      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
1510
1511    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
1512
1513    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
1514
1515    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
1516      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
1517
1518    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
1519
1520    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
1521
1522    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
1523      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
1524      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
1525
1526    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
1527      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
1528
1529    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
1530      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
1531
1532    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
1533      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
1534
1535    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
1536
1537    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
1538      (pguyot r24273).
1539
1540    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
1541      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
1542      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
1543
1544    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
1545      This work is in progress. (jberry)
1546       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
1547       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
1548         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
1549
1550    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
1551      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
1552
1553    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
1554      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
1555
1556    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
1557      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
1558
1559    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
1560
1561    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
1562
1563Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
1564
1565    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
1566      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
1567      (jberry r24151).
1568
1569    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
1570      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
1571      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
1572      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
1573      (pipping r24148).
1574
1575Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
1576
1577    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
1578      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
1579
1580    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
1581      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
1582
1583    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
1584      for submitter information.
1585      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
1586        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
1587        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
1588            - PORTSRC
1589            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
1590            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
1591          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
1592       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
1593
1594    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
1595      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
1596
1597    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
1598      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
1599      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
1600      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1601
1602    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1603
1604    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
1605      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
1606
1607Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
1608
1609    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
1610      (pipping in r23343).
1611
1612    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
1613      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
1614
1615    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
1616      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
1617      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
1618
1619    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
1620      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
1621
1622    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
1623      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
1624      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
1625
1626    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
1627
1628    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
1629      r22313).
1630
1631    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
1632      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
1633      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
1634      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
1635
1636    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
1637      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
1638
1639    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
1640      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
1641
1642    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
1643      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
1644
1645    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
1646      r23967)
1647
1648
1649Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
1650
1651    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
1652      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
1653
1654    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
1655
1656    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
1657      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
1658
1659    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
1660
1661    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
1662
1663    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
1664      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
1665
1666    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
1667
1668    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
1669
1670    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
1671      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
1672
1673    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
1674      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
1675
1676    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
1677      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
1678      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
1679
1680    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
1681
1682    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
1683      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
1684
1685    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
1686      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
1687
1688    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
1689      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
1690
1691    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
1692
1693    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
1694
1695    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
1696      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
1697
1698    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
1699
1700    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
1701
1702    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
1703
1704    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
1705      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
1706
1707    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
1708      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
1709
1710    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
1711
1712    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
1713
1714
1715Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
1716
1717    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
1718      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
1719
1720    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
1721
1722    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
1723      code. (pguyot)
1724
1725    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
1726      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
1727
1728    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
1729      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
1730
1731    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
1732      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
1733      /usr/local. (pguyot)
1734
1735    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
1736
1737    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
1738      (josh_root, blb)
1739
1740    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
1741      are modified. (pguyot)
1742
1743    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
1744      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1745
1746    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
1747      variable. (pguyot)
1748
1749    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
1750      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
1751      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
1752
1753Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
1754
1755    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
1756
1757    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
1758      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
1759
1760    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
1761      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
1762      SVN. (pguyot)
1763
1764    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
1765      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
1766
1767    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
1768      (jberry)
1769
1770    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
1771      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
1772
1773    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
1774
1775    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
1776
1777    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1778
1779    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
1780       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
1781       * mention interactive and batch modes
1782       * document extensions to info command.
1783
1784    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
1785
1786    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
1787      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
1788      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
1789
1790Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
1791
1792    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
1793      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
1794      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
1795
1796    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
1797      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
1798
1799    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
1800      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
1801
1802    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
1803
1804    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
1805
1806    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
1807      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
1808
1809    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
1810      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
1811
1812    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
1813
1814    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
1815      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
1816
1817    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
1818
1819    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
1820      (jberry)
1821
1822    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
1823      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
1824      (landonf)
1825
1826    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
1827      installed. (jmpp)
1828
1829    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
1830      project path. (pguyot)
1831
1832    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
1833      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
1834
1835    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
1836      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
1837
1838    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
1839      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
1840
1841    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
1842      (olegb)
1843
1844    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
1845      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
1846
1847    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
1848      iterating). (jberry)
1849
1850    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
1851      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
1852      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
1853
1854    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
1855
1856    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
1857      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
1858      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
1859      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
1860      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
1861      shoot yourself. (jberry)
1862
1863    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
1864      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
1865
1866    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
1867      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
1868
1869    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
1870
1871    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
1872      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
1873        several bug fixes.
1874      * cleaned up the code.
1875      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
1876        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
1877        reported creations).
1878      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
1879        overwritten.
1880
1881    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
1882
1883    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
1884      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
1885      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
1886
1887        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
1888          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
1889          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
1890
1891        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
1892          input following any commands given as arguments.
1893
1894        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
1895          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
1896          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
1897            #!/usr/bin/env portf
1898
1899        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
1900
1901        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
1902
1903        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
1904          interactive/batch mode.
1905
1906        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
1907
1908        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
1909          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
1910          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
1911
1912    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
1913      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
1914      (jberry).
1915
1916    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
1917      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
1918
1919    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
1920      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
1921      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
1922
1923    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
1924      (pguyot)
1925
1926    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
1927
1928    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
1929      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
1930      (jberry)
1931
1932    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
1933      MacOS X. (mww)
1934
1935    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
1936      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
1937      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
1938      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
1939      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
1940      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
1941      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
1942      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
1943      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
1944      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
1945      (jberry) 2006-02-16
1946
1947Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
1948
1949    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
1950      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
1951      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
1952      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
1953      fat, configure as follows:
1954        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
1955                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
1956
1957    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
1958      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
1959      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
1960
1961Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
1962
1963    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
1964      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
1965      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
1966        port uninstall vim @1.0
1967      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
1968      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
1969
1970    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
1971      destroot, too. (mww)
1972
1973    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
1974      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
1975
1976    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
1977      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
1978      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
1979
1980    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
1981      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
1982      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
1983
1984    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
1985      groups of ports.
1986      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
1987      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
1988
1989      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
1990        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
1991
1992      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
1993      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
1994      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
1995      The selectors are:
1996      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
1997      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
1998      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
1999
2000    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
2001      ports or groups of ports.
2002      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
2003
2004    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
2005      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
2006      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
2007      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
2008
2009    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
2010      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
2011
2012    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
2013      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
2014      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
2015
2016    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
2017      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
2018      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
2019      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
2020      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
2021      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
2022
2023    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
2024      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
2025      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
2026
2027    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
2028      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
2029
2030    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
2031      ones considered harmful (blb)
2032
2033    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
2034      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
2035
2036    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
2037      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
2038
2039    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
2040        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
2041          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
2042        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
2043          reports (pguyot)
2044        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
2045
2046    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
2047      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
2048
2049    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
2050
2051    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
2052      echo (the expanded arguments),
2053      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
2054      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
2055      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
2056      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
2057      (jberry)
2058
2059    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
2060      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
2061      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
2062      in a similar fashion (jberry)
