96
97    - Fixed an incorrect lint error about the port directory name when a full
98      @macports.org maintainer address is used. (#35925, ryandesign in r97264)
99
100    - Fixed creation of disk images with flat packages. (jmr in r99167)
101
102    - Fixed a bug where not all requested variants would be passed on to

123      continue (jmr in r95382)
124
125    - Added a log message when everything to be installed has an unsatisfied
126      dependency, such as in the case of circular dependencies (jmr in r93962)

128    - Fixed incorrect error message when installing a port that has a
129      dependency that is not in the index (#31130, jmr in r93511)
130
131Release 2.1.1 (2012-05-19 by jmr):

134
135    - Do not print detailed progress information in rev-upgrade when stdout is
136      not a terminal (#34480, cal in r93221,r93222)
137
138    - Made rev-upgrade avoid trying to upgrade ports that are not in the index
139      (jmr in r93197)
140
141    - Fixed rev-upgrade disabling source-only mode in its first upgrade pass
142      (jmr in r93153)

149    - Fix database upgrade on Tiger, where SQLite doesn't support ALTER TABLE
150      ADD COLUMN (#34463, cal in r93256)
151
152Release 2.1.0 (2012-05-15 by jmr):
153    - New configure.compiler options: macports-clang-2.9, macports-clang-3.0,
154      macports-clang-3.1, macports-gcc-4.7, macports-gcc-4.8
155      (jeremyhu in r86719, ryandesign in r91521)
156
157    - Avoid using pkg-config to find sqlite3 in our configure script unless it
158      can't be found by other means, because some third-party packages
159      incorrectly install a /usr/bin/pkg-config that points to an incompatible
160      copy of sqlite3. (#30932, dluke/jmr in r91512)
161
162    - 'port pkg' and 'port mpkg' will now create flat packages (i.e. a xar
163      archive rather than a directory) on 10.6+.
164      (jmr in r91317, r91329, r91331, r91437)
165
166    - Fixed dependencies sometimes being installed multiple times when
167      required with different archs. (#31794, jmr in r91357)

170      archive is available for download (and port is configured to use it).
171      (jmr in r91196, r91217)
172
173    - Added new config file archive_sites.conf, which can be used to configure
174      additional archive download sources. Each source has an associated
175      archive type; portarchivetype is now only used when creating archives
176      locally. Sources also have an associated prefix, applications_dir and
177      frameworks_dir, and if any of these do not match the current values, the
178      source is not used. (jmr in r91009)
179
180    - Xcode 4.3 support: Search harder for developer directory; advise user to
181      run xcode-select when necessary, searching for Xcode and suggesting
182      xcode-select commands.
183      (jberry, jmr in r89970,r89971,r89972,r89996,r89999,r90003,r90005-r90009,
184      r90018-r90019,r90024,r90031)
185
186    - warn about non-existing developer_dir when it's set in macports.conf
187      (cal in 90802)
188
189    - port automatically installs bsdmake when there's no bsdmake in $PATH and a
190      port sets build.type bsd (#33355, cal in r90650)
191
192    - Added -W option for reinplace that sets a base directory that all file
193      arguments are interpreted as being relative to. (raimue in r90610)
194
195    - Added macports.conf options 'host_blacklist' and 'preferred_hosts', used
196      for indicating lists of download hosts that should not be used or should
197      be used preferentially, respectively. These override the usual ping time
198      check. Ping times are also now cached for 24 hours. (jmr in r89459)
199
200    - Added 'rev-upgrade' action checking for broken linkage and rebuilding
201      ports containing broken files. Made rev-upgrade run automatically after
202      each upgrade or install.
203      (cal in branch gsoc11-rev-upgrade, merge in r88376, also cal, raimue, jmr
204      in r88377,r88411,r88441,r88511,r88666,r88732,r89180,r89659,r89661,r90102,
205      r90381)
206
207    - Added options controlling rev-upgrade behavior to macports.conf
208      (jmr, cal in r88725,r88794,r89189)
209
210    - port livecheck regex finds multiple matches on the same line
211      (raimue in r88031)
212
213    - Several improvements to port lint:
214      licenses, subversion properties, maintainer addresses
215      (#30194, snc, raimue in r85929, r86016, r89428, r89610)
216
217    - Added license_noconflict option to specify dependencies for which the
218      maintainer has manually checked license compatibility and wishes to
219      overrule the conservative automated checks. (jmr in r89004)
220
221    - Xcode 4.3 support: Use xcrun -find to find xcode compiler if it's not
222      found in /usr/bin.
223      (jberry, jmr in r88540,r88541,r88546,r88777,r88779,r88787,r89359,r89984,r90028)
224
225    - Added options compiler.blacklist, compiler.whitelist, and
226      compiler.fallback; to allow blacklisting, whitelisting, and setting the
227      fallback order for configure.compiler values, respectively.
228      (#30041, jmr in r88676)
229
230    - Fix sync with subdirectory of Subversion 1.7-format working copy
231      (#33573, jmr in 86872)
232
233    - Fixed conflicts not being checked for when installing ports that have no
234      dependencies. (#31571, dports in r85382)
235
236    - dmg postflight: quote all paths to handle the increasingly frequent
237      occurrence that $HOME contains spaces (#33583, ryandesign in r84345)
238
239    - dmg postflight: adjust wording of some messages (ryandesign in r84344)
240
241    - The deprecated Portfile options svn.tag, distcheck.check and
242      livecheck.check have been removed. (raimue in r82763)
243
244    - Implement new option-replace using lsearch/lreplace. The old behavior is
245      deprecated for option-replace with only one argument, but can still be
246      found in option-strsed.
247      (raimue in r82760, r82761)
248
249    - Added 'buildfromsource' macports.conf setting, which allows permanently
250      selecting the behaviour of the -s or -b option. (jmr in r81540)
251
252Release 2.0.4 (2012-02-25 by jmr)
253    - Added -locale option for reinplace (jeremyhu in r89839)
254
255    - Xcode 4.3 support: Change home directory for MacPorts user to
256      ${prefix}/var/macports/home.
257      (jberry, jmr in r89988, r89993, r90002, r90010, r90011)
258
259    - set env(HOME) to ${workpath}/.home when building ports

261
262    - Fix use_xmkmf to honor xmkmf.env for its make Makefiles phase
263      (#31504, jeremyhu in r89537, r89538, r89539)
264
265    - Added configure.cxx setting when configure.compiler is apple-gcc-4.2
266      (jeremyhu in r80248)
267
268    - Xcode 4.3 support: added packagemaker_path macports.conf setting
269      (jmr in r90058)
270
271    - Resolve ambiguity in selection in portlists
272      (jberry in r88179, r88185)
273
274    - Xcode 4.3 support: updated default developer_dir location for 4.3
275      (jmr in r90016)
276
277    - Xcode 4.3 support: use compilers in /usr/bin instead of developer_dir
278      when possible, as the latter has proven to be volatile.

285
286Release 2.0.3 (2011-09-05 by raimue)
287    - Fix a regression introduced in 2.0.2 when fetching with a VCS
288      (#31073, jmr in r83471)
289
290Release 2.0.2 (2011-09-01 by jmr):
291    - Messages recommending running selfupdate will no longer be printed when
292      selfupdate is being run. (#23094, jmr in r83270, r83391)
293
294    - The PortIndex will not be regenerated during selfupdate when base is
295      outdated. This avoids failure to index ports that use features only
296      available in the current version. (#30739, jmr in r83271)
297
298    - Fixed build failures when the TMPDIR environment variable is set to a
299      directory that is not writable by the macports user.
300      (#30749, jmr in r83267)
301
302    - Fixed error when checksumming distfiles with names containing spaces.
303      (#28568, jmr in r83149)

306      dependents are processed before the ports they depend on.
307      (#8431, jmr in r82947)
308
309    - Fixed an issue where a non-universal version of a port could be
310      installed as a dependency as well as the universal version, with
311      unpredictable results, when some ports in the dependency graph needed
312      the universal version but others didn't. (jmr in r82924)
313
314    - Now using a temp dir inside ${prefix} when activating, as /tmp or
315      /var/folders may be on a different volume. (jmr in r82767)
316
317    - Fixed extracting portfile-only archives. (#31033, jmr in r81830)
318
319    - Fixed adduser and addgroup procedures not re-dropping privileges when
320      done. (jmr in r81630)
321
322    - Fixed error activating ports with names containing the string "cpio".
323      (#30532, jmr in r81577)
324
325Release 2.0.1 (2011-08-02 by jmr):
326    - Fixed errors when installing some archives built on a case-sensitive
327      filesystem onto a case-insensitive one. (#30373, jmr in r81562)
328
329    - Fixed users created by MacPorts showing up in the GUI in some places on
330      Lion. (#30168, jeremyhu in r81558)

332    - Added replaced_by pseudo-portname selector. (afb in r81475)
333
334    - Added progress output to port image conversion script.
335      (#30347, jmr in r81464)
336
337    - Now doing a better job of avoiding UID conflicts with non-local users
338      when creating the 'macports' user. (#30464, jmr in r81414, r81415) Also
339      improved Tiger compatibility in this area. (jmr in r81454, r81467)
340
341    - Fixed 'port selfupdate' exiting with non-zero status after installing a
342      new version of base. (jmr in r81371)
343
344    - Added --subports to options accepted by 'port info'. (jmr in r81234)
345
346    - Fixed incorrect info sometimes being added to PortIndex entries when
347      using subports. (#30463, jmr in r81361)
348
349    - Fixed descriptions not being shown for default variants. (jmr in r80971)
350
351    - Fixed 'port variants --index'. (jmr in r80969)
352
353Release 2.0.0 (2011-07-22 by jmr):
354
355    - Multiple ports can now be defined in one Portfile using the 'subport'
356      procedure. This reduces code duplication when several ports use very
357      similar code. (jmr in r78062)
358
359    - Privilege dropping is now on by default. The runtime user can be changed
360      when building from source but defaults to 'macports'; this user is
361      created at install time. (jmr in r79025)
362
363    - Fetching from some extremely slow or partially unresponsive servers
364      should now time out as expected. (raimue in r71038)
365
366    - The registry is now "vacuumed" (compacted/defragmented) after
367      uninstalling ports. (jmr in r70608)
368
369    - Downloaded archives are now checked for integrity using digital
370      signatures. Sync and selfupdate can also use a signed tarball. New
371      pubkeys.conf file allows configuring keys to trust.
372      (jmr in r68996, r79093)
373
374    - Added 'actinact' pseudo-portname that expands to installed ports with an
375      active version and at least one inactive version.
376      (#27666, jmr in r79421, based on patch from gmail.com:ww.galen)
377
378    - Added --size option for 'contents' action that makes it print the size
379      of each file. (#27245, jmr in r79365, based on patch from
380      gmail.com:ww.galen)
381
382    - Added 'space' action to show the disk space used by ports' active files.
383      (#27244, jmr in r79349, based on patch from gmail.com:ww.galen)
384
385    - Actions can be abbreviated to an unambiguous prefix of the full name.
386      (#27242, patch from gmail.com:ww.galen committed in r79259)
387
388    - Fixed error when activating ports whose version contains an underscore
389      followed by an integer and a dash. (#28084, jmr in r79167)
390
391    - Deactivating a port that has dependents no longer needs to be forced
392      when the dependents are all inactive. (#29505, jmr in r78086)
393
394    - New option 'add_users' has been added. Setting it will ensure that the
395      listed users are created before all operations that may require them to
396      exist. (#11563, jmr in r78660)
397
398    - 'port info --index' should be much faster and will work with the
399      'current' pseudo-port provided the port has been indexed.
400      (#13673, jmr in r78621)
401
402    - Relocation is explicitly disabled when building pkgs on 10.6, so Apple's
403      Installer won't attempt to overwrite other copies of the same software
404      not installed by MacPorts. (#25174, jmr in r78178)
405
406    - Non-Darwin platforms can once again build base against OpenSSL for
407      checksum support. (#26813, afb in r77865)
408
409    - It is now safe to set svn.post_args, rather than that option being
410      reserved for svn.url. (#27454, jmr in r73825)
411
412    - Variants specified when running 'port mpkg' are now set in the
413      dependencies as well. (#27231, jmr in r73303)
414
415    - Fixed various issues with privilege dropping.
416      (#26899, jmr in r69453 etc.)
417
418    - Trace mode no longer fails on 10.6. (#21582, jmr in r74318, r74369)
419
420    - Ports that create StartupItems (aka launchd plists) should now be
421      installable by unprivileged users. (#10879, jmr in r66700, r75143)
422
423    - Fixed incorrect output from 'port dependents' when using newer SQLite
424      versions. (#27506, patch from gmail.com:mmpestorich committed in r76827)
425
426    - The flat registry format is no longer available. Setting portdbformat to
427      'flat' in macports.conf will result in the sqlite registry being used.
428      (jmr in r77681)
429
430    - Port images are now stored as archives. Archive mode is now effectively
431      always on. Among other benefits, this fixes some bugs with the handling
432      of hard links installed by ports (e.g. #13601).
433
434      Direct mode is no longer available. Existing port image directories, and
435      installed files for direct mode, will be converted to archives when
436      upgrading.
437
438      (#19458, branch by blb, merged by jmr in r77511)
439
440    - master_site_local, patch_site_local, and archive_site_local can be set
441      in macports.conf, with the same effects as the corresponding environment
442      variables. (jmr in r74924)
443
444    - Added 'logfile' action that prints the path to a port's log file.
445      (jmr in r74655)
446
447    - Computing large dependency trees that contain the same port(s) multiple
448      times should be considerably faster. (jmr in r73133)
449
450    - New configure.compiler options: macports-gcc-4.6, macports-llvm-gcc-4.2,
451      macports-clang (jmr in r71487; mfeiri in r72936, r72937)
452
453    - Add '-n' option to reinplace (#26406, ryandesign in r73227)
454
455    - Add new ccache_dir and ccache_size options, default path is
456      ${portdbpath}/build/.ccache and a size of 2 GB.
457      (raimue in r71604, r71606)
458
459    - Add 'system -W path' which changes to the given directory before
460      executing the command.
461      (raimue in r71380, r71389)
462
463    - Add -w to build.cmd and destroot.cmd if using gnumake
464      (raimue in r71370)
465
466    - Add livecheck.ignore_sslcert; setting fetch.ignore_sslcert does no
467      longer apply to livecheck. distcheck now respects fetch.ignore_sslcert.
468      (#17063, raimue in r70975, r70979, r70982)
469
470    - Add SHA256 checksums in addition to MD5, SHA1 and RIPEMD160.
471      (afb in r57888, r57913; snc in r68955)
472
473    - Add @pkgdep lines to archives, with build-time dependencies.
474      (afb in r76919)
475
476Release 1.9.2 (2010-11-07 by jmr):
477
478    - Added more locking to avoid TOCTOU errors when running multiple port(1)
479      instances (#19935, jmr in r70174)
480
481    - Fixed -q not suppressing output from 'port lint' (#25880, jmr in r70163)
482
483    - Added a helpful message when there is a checksum mismatch and the
484      distfile appears to incorrectly be a HTML document (#25128,
485      ryandesign/jmr in r70143)
486
487    - Now checking early on if there are sufficient privileges to install,
488      and failing before building anything if not (#25671, jmr in r70135)
489
490    - Avoided possible failure when the -u option is used when upgrading a
491      port that is marked as being replaced by another (jmr in r69022)
492
493    - Using the platform-specific PortIndex when syncing using a daily tarball
494      (jmr in r68786)
495
496    - Fixed failures when fetch target is run without root privileges and the
497      port is then installed with them (#25418, #25937; jmr in r69334, r70271)
498
499    - Fixed upgrading ports where the new version differs from the old version
500      only in epoch (jmr in r69436)
501
502    - Fixed [un]setrequested when using the flat registry format
503      (#26352, jmr in r69387)
504
505    - Fixed checking for conflicting ports before installation
506      (#25386, jmr in r69105)
507
508    - Now gracefully handling distfiles that use a tag that is not
509      associated with any sites (#25332, jmr in r68965)
510
511    - Fixed running 'port deps' on multiple ports, and changed its output
512      format back to how it was in 1.8 (#25324, jmr in r68950)
513
514    - Fixed premature privilege dropping (#25331, jmr in r68952)
515
516Release 1.9.1 (2010-06-18 by jmr):
517    - Fixed a couple of problems with new 1.9 features when using the flat
518      registry format (jmr in r68910, r68913)
519
520    - Ports using the replaced_by option will once again be deactivated when
521      an upgrade is performed on them (#25270, jmr in r68872)
522
523    - Fixed the possibility of some empty directories being left behind when
524      a port is deactivated (#25268, jmr in r68864)
525
526    - Fixed failure to detect conflicts with files that are not provided by
527      a port before activation starts (#25255, jmr in r68849)
528
529    - Fixed problems with distfile names containing spaces (#25245, #25246;
530      jmr in r68816, r68817)
531
532    - Fixed a problem with uninstall when using direct mode, and started
533      running pre/post activate and deactivate procedures when installing and
534      uninstalling in direct mode, respectively (#11562, jmr in r68697)
535
536    - fixed a crasher that affected Tiger (#25194, jmr in r68675, r68680,
537      r68691)
538
539Release 1.9.0 (2010-06-08 by jmr):
540
541    - It is no longer possible to use include statements in Portfiles
542      (raimue in r68206)
543
544    - Command line options can be abbreviated if unambiguous
545      (raimue in r66837)
546
547    - Added a new variable 'os.subplatform'. When os.platform is darwin, the
548      subplatform is either 'macosx' or 'puredarwin'.
549
550    - 'platform' no longer creates a variant, instead it executes the code in
551      the body immediately if the current platform matches the one specified.
552
553    - Using a Portfile with a modification date in the future now causes an
554      informative error early on, instead of just discarding the workdir at
555      the start of every phase. (#24717, raimue in r65246)
556
557    - Fetching from servers that require a cookie to be set now works.
558      (#24584, raimue in r66785)
559
560    - Fixed an error when everything is deleted from the patchfiles list.
561      (#24178, raimue in r65243)
562
563    - Added 'license:' pseudo-port selector. (#24123, perry in r65033)
564
565    - Added new fetch.type 'bzr'. (#23436, perry in r65096)
566
567    - Added 'rdeps' and 'rdependents' actions, recursive versions of 'deps'
568      and 'dependents' respectively. Also added 'depof:', 'rdepof:',
569      'dependentof:' and 'rdependentof:' pseudo-port selectors, for specifying
570      the ports that are dependencies or dependents of the given port.
571      (#22346, jmr in r65858/r66198)
572
573    - Updated the description of the search action in the port(1) man page.
574      (#23749, jmr in r66670)
575
576    - Dry-run now uses /dev/null as the statefile, which prevents a couple of
577      problems involving locking and variant checks.
578      (#21794, #21962; jmr in r66921)
579
580    - The list of dependencies to be installed is now displayed immediately
581      after computing them. (#21540, jmr in r66321)
582
583    - The quick index is now reloaded after syncing in interactive mode, which
584      prevents errors due to it not matching the updated PortIndex.
585      (#20874, jmr in r66319, refinement of patch from carrel.org:edward)
586
587    - The architectures of dependencies are checked when installing a port. If
588      a dependency does not provide the required arch(s), it is rebuilt with
589      +universal if that is possible and will help, otherwise the install fails
590      and an error message explains why. (#20728, jmr in r65087)
591
592    - New supported_archs option allows ports to indicate which architectures
593      they can be built for. The default values of configure.build_arch and
594      configure.universal_archs change based on this list. Set this to
595      'noarch' if a port installs only architecture-independent files.
596      (#20739, jmr in r64372/r64945)
597
598    - Declaring a variant that requires one or more other variants will now
599      correctly set the required variants, so they can be checked with
600      variant_isset. (#19224, jmr in r66642)
601
602    - 'port outdated' now indicates the reason why a port that appears to have
603      the same version as that in the tree is considered outdated. Possible
604      reasons are that the epoch is higher, or the installed version was built
605      on a different OS version. (#19138, jmr in r64960)
606
607    - Distfile names are now percent-escaped in the download URLs when needed.
608      (#18736, jmr in r66794)
609
610    - buildnicevalue is now applied to configure and destroot commands, and to
611      build commands with unusual names. (#18304, raimue in r65076/r65808)
612
613    - Removed hardcoded /opt/local prefix from the base dmg resources.
614      (#17633, jmr in r66776)
615
616    - Fixed an error that occurred when archive mode was enabled but
617      ${prefix}/var/macports/packages did not exist. (#17579, jmr in r66775)
618
619    - Syncing rsync sources now tries to get a platform-specific version of
620      the PortIndex from the server, and skips this if the local copy is less
621      than a day old. All sync methods now update the PortIndex at the end.
622      (#17157, jmr in r66846/r67207)
623
624    - portindex(1) now skips parsing Portfiles whose modification time is
625      older than the current PortIndex, instead reusing the existing entry.
626      (#16235, jmr in r66845)
627
628    - Added a 'requested' flag to the registry that indicates which ports were
629      installed explicitly (as opposed to as a dependency of something else).
630      This enables the new 'requested', 'unrequested' and 'leaves' pseudo-
631      ports, as well as the --follow-dependencies option for uninstall.
632      The setrequested and unsetrequested actions will set and clear the flag,
633      respectively.
634      (#15260, jmr in r64517, r64663, r65546, r66037, r66200, r66215)
635
636    - The macports1.0 directory is now installed to
637      ${prefix}/share/macports/Tcl rather than /Library/Tcl. A symlink will be
638      installed in the old location if there is nothing there already, so
639      'package require macports' will still work in tclsh.
640      (#12943, jmr in r65055)
641
642    - Added warning and error messags when Xcode is old enough to cause
643      problems or too old to use at all, respectively. (#12794, jmr in r66771)
644
645    - Removed the rather outdated copy of sqlite3 from the source tree, made
646      the sqlite3 directory configurable, and added defaults for non-darwin
647      platforms. (#12231, jmr in r64358/r64363)
648
649    - There is a new 'archivefetch' target which is run before unarchive when
650      archive mode is enabled, and attempts to download the archive from a
651      server. There are currently no sites configured to download from (these
652      are stored in the ports tree like the mirror sites used for fetch), but
653      you can set ARCHIVE_SITE_LOCAL in the environment. Note that there is no
654      integrity checking for archives yet. (#8571, jmr in r64816)
655
656    - Now recording negative variants in the registry, which stops deselected
657      variants from being reactivated on upgrade due to default_variants or
658      variants.conf settings. (#2377, jmr in r64533)
659
660    - Added support for pre- and post- procedures for the activate, deactivate
661      and uninstall targets. This feature requires portdbformat sqlite. There
662      was limited support for pre- and post-activate previously, but the
663      procedures were only run when installing the port, not when activating
664      an inactive version. (#1068, #4228, #18273; jmr in r64638/r64639)
665
666    - Integrated the sqlite-based registry2.0 code. The portdbformat variable
667      in macports.conf can be set to 'sqlite' to enable it. Existing flat
668      receipts will be converted the first time port(1) is run with sufficient
669      privileges. Original code by sfiera, fixed and integrated by jmr in
670      r63398 and following. The new format lacks a number of problems that the
671      old one suffers from, including #13054 (dependencies from old port
672      versions stick around across upgrades) and #14123 (files whose paths
673      differ only in case are left behind when uninstalling).
674
675    - Fixed file list in +CONTENTS file in archives. (#21864, jmr in r59882)
676
677    - Fixed a few issues reported with building MacPorts on Linux. (#22716)
678
679    - Upgrade will now always choose the port that is active when following
680      dependencies that could be satisfied by more than one port and more than
681      one of these is installed, instead of choosing the one actually named in
682      the depspec. (#23921, jmr in r60883)
683
684    - Extracting from a disk image ("use_dmg yes") no longer fails when there
685      is a space in $worksrcdir. (#23456, raimue in r67089)
686
687    - Added a configure.sdkroot option which can be used to build against a
688      Mac OS X SDK. It is empty by default unless the value of
689      macosx_deployment_target is not the current OS version, or the universal
690      variant is set and the current platform is PowerPC Tiger. It is also
691      possible to set macosx_deployment_target globally in macports.conf now,
692      but this is unsupported. (#19875, jmr in r66924)
693
694    - Add "fs-traverse -tails" which only returns the part following the
695      specified directory (#21873, raimue in r65785)
696
697    - Allow gcc45 port to be used in configure.compiler (ryandesign in r62223)
698
699    - svn checkouts now use peg revisions instead of operative revisions,
700      so they'll continue to work if a repository gets reorganized
701      (#20777, ryandesign in r60573)
702
703    - Print the location of the log file when a target fails (jmr in r60769)
704
705    - Use CommonCrypto/CommonDigest instead of OpenSSL libcrypto.
706      (toby in r58131, jberry in r59715)
707
708    - New "patch.type gnu" for GNU patch, similar to "build.type gnu"
709      for GNU make. Only makes a difference for BSD patch and BSD make.
710      (afb in r58020)
711
712    - Updated the FreeBSD package (ObjC/Foundation is now optional).
713      (afb in r57889)
714
715    - Don't use "make -j1" for build.jobs=1, but prefer "make" instead.
716      (afb in r57998)
717
718    - Add new "use_xz yes" port option to allow distfiles in xz format.
719      (afb in r57827)
720
721    - Archive mode now uses build_arch in archive names rather than os.arch.
722      (snc in r58977)
723
724    - Add new log command and keeping of debug output for easy access
725      after port has run (GSoC 2009 logging project by enl, merged in r60372)
726
727    - Some of the build_arch flags now appear in LDFLAGS as well, fixing
728      several ports when building for a different architecture (jeremyhu in
729      r60662, jmr in r60680)
730
731    - Fixed 'merge' proc for paths with spaces, and for symlinks on Snow
732      Leopard, and added an error message for when 'merge' is not called
733      correctly (#21852, ryandesign in r58776, r58777, r58778)
734
735Release 1.8.2 (2010-01-01 by jmr):
736
737    - Fixed 'port load' for non-root installations (#21713, jmr in r60774)
738
739    - Fixed a bug that could cause port to hit the open file limit
740      (#22959, jmr in r61770)
741
742    - Fixed an error when installing from source or selfupdating on Tiger with
743      an svn-based ports tree (#20760, jmr in r61302)
744
745    - Fixed an error when selfupdating as root with a prefix that is not owned
746      by root (#21010, jmr in r60798)
747
748    - Stopped uninstall from failing when files in the port image have already
749      been deleted (#22001, jmr in r59318, r59654)
750
751    - Stopped printing command output multiple times on failure (#21084,
752      jmr in r60770)
753
754    - Started showing bug reporting instructions on failure (jmr in r60770)
755
756    - Fixed a bug where 'port dmg' could create too small an image and run out
757      of space (#22404, jmr in r60260)
758
759    - Fixed a bug where reinplace could fail when running port without root
760      privileges (#20896, jmr in r59597)
761
762    - Started setting our own umask since Snow Leopard makes us inherit
763      the user's even when using sudo (#21389, jmr in r59585)
764
765Release 1.8.1 (2009-09-28 by jmr):
766
767    - Installer error messages now display properly even from the Snow Leopard
768      MacPorts dmg. (jmr in r56448)
769
770    - 'fetch.type svn' no longer requires the installation of the subversion
771      port as of Snow Leopard. (toby in r56160; raimue in r56162)
772
773    - Updated manpages and 'port help' output (ryandesign in r56472, r56473,
774      r56474; blb in r56666, r57048, r57131)
775
776    - Fixed syncing using the daily tarball. (#21034, toby in r56889)
777
778    - Fixed 'port load' (#21128, raimue in r57055)
779
780    - Improved error message when an expression on the command line does not
781      match any ports (jmr in r57026)
782
783    - Stopped recording the completion of the install phase in the
784      statefile, which led to errors if the port was uninstalled but the work
785      dir was not cleaned, and the port was then installed again.
786      (jmr/raimue in r57801, 57820)
787
788Release 1.8.0 (2009-08-28 by jmr):
789    - There is now a 'build_arch' variable, available in portfiles and
790      configurable in macports.conf, which sets the CPU architecture that
791      ports should be compiled for (when not building universal). Its default
792      is the same as that of the Apple-supplied /usr/bin/gcc.
793      (#19874, jmr in r53217,r53386,r53420,r53494,r53860,r54236)
794
795    - MacPorts base now works on and has appropriate default settings for
796      Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. (#19874, toby/mww/jkh in r38271,r40060,
797      r40836,r43976,r52397)
798     
799    - MacPorts now requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later. (Panther is not
800      just "unsupported", it really won't work.)
801
802    - The universal_sysroot and universal_target keys have been removed from
803      macports.conf. These settings are now handled automatically.
804      (toby in r52324)
805
806    - Added a 'replaced_by' portfile option. This causes upgrade to deactivate
807      the current port and install the port specified by this option. This
808      also allows ports to be renamed. Upgrade accepts a --no-replace option
809      which disables this behaviour. (#20157, jmr in r54378)
810
811    - The upgrade action now accepts --force and --enforce-variants options.
812      The former causes ports to be rebuilt even if they are not outdated, and
813      the global -f option no longer has this effect (it had too many effects
814      already). The latter causes ports to be rebuilt if the requested
815      variants do not match those installed (even if they are not outdated).
816      (#20156, jmr in r54376)
817
818    - Dependencies can be satisfied by ports that are installed but not
819      available in the ports tree (useful for testing uncommitted ports).
820      (jmr in r52075, r52160)
821
822    - Ports that are installed but not available in the ports tree no longer
823      cause an error when running commands like 'port clean installed'. They
824      are skipped and a warning is printed. (#19253, jmr in r50865)
825
826    - Selfupdate no longer disables readline support unless readline is found
827      in /usr/local, which has historically caused failures.
828      (#19035, jmr in r50868)
829
830    - Uninstalling a port that is not installed now produces an informational
831      message rather than an error. (#18984, jmr in r53709)
832
833    - Added a 'conflicts' portfile option. Conflicting ports will be detected
834      during dependency calculation. (#18794, blb/jmr in r51525)
835
836    - 'port selfupdate' now explicitly states precisely what it does. (#18512)
837
838    - Operating system and architecture information is now shown in debug
839      output. (#18435, raimue in r46669)
840
841    - Fixed a bug that could break some symlinks to man pages. (#18302)
842
843    - Switched to a more efficient algorithm for looking up port information
844      in the index, which makes many operations faster.
845      (#18259, jmr/blb in r47110)
846
847    - MacPorts base now tries to avoid using commands that come from ports, so
848      that a broken port can't break the base code. (#18149)
849
850    - Deleting all the contents of a portfile option no longer unsets the
851      option entirely. (#17865, toby in r44901)
852
853    - Removed the code that upgrades from the old DarwinPorts filesystem
854      layout. Trying to upgrade to 1.8.0+ from a version older than 1.5.0 will
855      produce an error message saying you need to install 1.7.1 first.
856      (#17619, jmr in r53260)
857
858    - port(1) now reports its version as dotted-decimal rather than floating
859      point. (#17420)
860
861    - Dependencies are now always obtained by parsing the Portfile and not
862      from the PortIndex, since the latter can't provide expanded variables
863      like $prefix which may be used in path: depspecs. (#17182)
864
865    - Newline characters in long_description can no longer cause receipt
866      corruption. (#16619, blb in r50663)
867
868    - Now unlocking the filemap when it is not in use. This allows e.g.
869      'port contents' to be run while another port instance is performing
870      installs. Note that running more than one simultaneous port instance
871      that will modify the registry can easily fail, though hopefully
872      without corrupting anything. (#16246, jmr in r51133)
873
874    - Removed some irrelevant debug output that was being printed when a port
875      failed. (#16203, jmr in r53706)
876
877    - Added new depends_fetch and depends_extract options, for dependencies
878      that are needed to fetch or extract the port, respectively.
879      (#15161, jmr in r51780)
880
881    - Packages (including the one for MacPorts base) now correctly indicate
882      that they can only be installed on the root volume.
883      (#14809, jmr in r53250)
884
885    - Using an alternative fetch or extract type now adds appropriate
886      dependencies automatically, e.g. 'use_zip yes' adds a dep on unzip, and
887      'fetch.type svn' adds a dep on subversion. (#13981, jmr in r43782)
888
889    - port(1) should now exit with an appropriate status code when an error is
890      encountered. Use the -p option to continue despite errors.
891      (#13918, jmr in r53704)
892
893    - Proxy information can now be obtained from System Preferences and from
894      macports.conf. The older method using environment variables no longer
895      works out of the box on Leopard due to changes that Apple made to the
896      default /etc/sudoers. (#13158, blb in r47194)
897
898    - Improved handling of malformed variant definitions.
899      (#12596, jmr in r50719, r50721)
900
901    - Cope a little better with missing receipt files. (#19540, jmr in r51138)
902
903    - Fixed a major memory leak in the filemap code.
904      (#12022, pguyot in r51419)
905
906    - Improved the logic for determining whether phases can be skipped. This
907      fixes the specific problems of being unable to build packages of ports
908      that are installed, port not running specific phases (e.g. build)
909      when told to if the port is installed, and inactive dependencies being
910      rebuilt instead of simply activated. (#10881, #16260, jmr in r50490)
911
912    - When archive mode is enabled, ports will no longer be rebuilt if an
913      archive is available. (#10785, jmr in r50416)
914
915    - Activating a port will now first deactivate any other version of the
916      same port that is already active. (#10571, jmr in r53711)
917
918    - Added a 'license' portfile option, which is displayed in 'port info'
919      output. (#7493, jmr in r50801)
920
921    - port lint recognizes new top-level category php (#19329, ryandesign)
922
923    - Do not print header lines when the quiet option -q is set
924      (raimue in r48558)
925
926    - svn.tag is deprecated, use svn.revision instead (raimue in r48222-48223)
927
928    - port -i option has been removed (blb in r48218)
929
930    - ui_warn logs to stderr instead of stdout (raimue in r48217)
931
932    - Remove --pretend option for port selfupdate, use global dry-run option
933      instead (raimue in r48125)
934
935    - port(1) option -y for dry-run (#11892, gwhitney/jmr in r43726)
936
937    - New pseudo-port 'obsolete' to identify ports which are installed but no
938      longer in the PortIndex (raimue in r47253)
939
940    - MacPorts can now perform fetch, extract, patch, configure and build in a
941      user rather than system owned location. By default, this is
942      ~/.macports/opt. This allows MacPorts to do all but the install of the
943      port without root privileges. (gsoc08-privileges)
944
945    - MacPorts can now automatically drop privileges so as to avoid running as
946      root whenever possible. To enable this, pass the desired user to run as
947      to configure with the --with-macports-user option. (gsoc08-privileges)
948
949    - The Portfile format has a number of new boolean attributes to indicate
950      when an action should or should not be run with root privileges:
951      'patch.asroot', 'build.asroot', 'configure.asroot', 'destroot.asroot',
952      and 'install.asroot'. The default for all is "no". If the prefix folder
953      (by default /opt/local) is not writable, MacPorts will attempt to
954      elevate privileges to root for the install phase. (gsoc08-privileges)
955
956    - A "make group" command has been added to the Makefile and a
957      "--with-shared-directory" switch to the configure script. Running "make
958      group" will create a macports group. "--with-shared-directory" will let
959      let the group specified by "--with-install-group" have full read write
960      access to the /opt/local hierarchy. This will allow users who are
961      members of the new macports group to have full write permissions to
962      /opt/local and its subfolders, and hence to install ports which only
963      affect that hierarchy without requiring root privileges.
964      (gsoc08-privileges)
965
966    - A switch called "--with-no-root-privileges" has been added for use by
967      user installing MacPorts for their own use only. An example configure
968      command would be "./configure
969      --prefix=/Users/{your-user-name-here}/.macports/opt
970      --with-no-root-privileges" (gsoc08-privileges)
971
972    - Add several new options to port search, looks in name and description by
973      default (#15434, raimue)
974
975    - Add xpkg package type, xar-based format with XML. (afb)
976
977    - Split portpkg creation out from portsubmit phase. (afb)
978
979    - Make dependencies displayed in port info respect variants
980      specified in variants.conf; collapse port deps to be an alias
981      for port info with appropriate flags. Note this changes output
982      format of port deps somewhat.  (#11891, gwhitney in r44340)
983
984    - Make dependencies in port upgrade respect variants as specified
985      (in order of precedence) on command line, latest installed
986      version, or variants.conf .  (#8221, gwhitney in r44362)
987
988    - Add select action, which integrates *_select tools into port.
989      (#17477, perry)
990
991    - The variants action additionally shows default variants, conflicting
992      variants and variants' dependencies. (#14178, #15628, perry)
993
994    - Implicit variants (e.g., darwin) can no longer be explicitly
995      set/unset. (#12563, perry in r46938, jmr in r53371)
996
997Release 1.7.1 (2009-03-28 by raimue):
998    - Trailing slashes are stripped from the prefix passed to configure, which
999      prevents incorrect mtree violation warnings. (#13789)
1000
1001    - Fix freshmeat-based livecheck (#18887)
1002
1003    - Fix issue on direct-mode installs where checking for installed ports
1004      wasn't properly looking (it only matched for revision 0 and no
1005      variants) (#17762)
1006
1007    - Add new "use_7z yes" port option to allow distfiles in 7z format
1008      (#18521, ryandesign)
1009
1010    - port lint no longer requires variable master_sites if the port has no
1011      distfiles (#18479, ryandesign)
1012
1013    - Upgrade will no longer accept ports that are not installed (but it still
1014      installs new ports as dependencies if needed). In particular, this means
1015      that "port upgrade all" will no longer proceed to install every
1016      available port. (jmr in r46052)
1017
1018    - Add mkdtemp Tcl command to create temporary directories. (#17181, perry)
1019
1020    - Add 'apple-gcc-4.2' option to configure.compiler (#18426, ryandesign)
1021
1022    - Create ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} in destroot
1023      automatically (r45614, raimue)
1024
1025    - Make the postflight procedure a bit smarter about which login files
1026      to update for bash and tcsh (#17588)
1027
1028    - Add error messages to package installers when the wrong OS package
1029      is being installed (#13141)
1030
1031Release 1.7.0 (2008-12-13 by blb):
1032    - Global variant descriptions using variant_descriptions.conf in the new
1033      resources directory in the ports tree (#14482, raimue)
1034
1035    - Move port resources into the ports tree (#14553, raimue and blb)
1036
1037    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
1038
1039    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
1040
1041    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
1042
1043    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
1044      --nitpick is used (#14799)
1045
1046    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
1047
1048    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
1049
1050    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
1051      phases (#11897)
1052
1053    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
1054      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
1055
1056    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
1057      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
1058      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
1059      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
1060
1061    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
1062      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
1063      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
1064      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
1065      in r38683)
1066
1067    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
1068
1069    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
1070      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
1071      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
1072
1073    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
1074      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
1075      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
1076      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, r37621)
1077
1078    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
1079      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
1080      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
1081      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
1082
1083    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
1084      (#15577, afb in r37501)
1085
1086    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
1087
1088    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
1089      running (raimue)
1090
1091    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
1092      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
1093      jmr in r37217, r37255)
1094
1095    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
1096      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
1097      r37121)
1098
1099    - Stopped 'port -R upgrade' from processing more ports than it should, and
1100      from processing ports multiple times. (#10827, jmr in r37046)
1101
1102    - Don't include build.nice and build.jobs in destroot.cmd (#15295)
1103
1104    - The default universal variant is no longer added when we know it won't
1105      work. (#12170, jmr in r36764)
1106
1107    - During upgrade, if the latest installed version of a port is not active,
1108      the currently active version (if any) is now deactivated before trying
1109      to activate the latest version. (#12013, jmr in r36762)
1110
1111    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is
1112      inactive and there is at least one other version of the same port
1113      installed (#11501, jmr in r36747)
1114
1115    - Duplicate entries can no longer build up in the dependency map (#8763,
1116      jmr in r36745)
1117
1118    - In image mode, dependencies are no longer treated as being satisfied
1119      when the satisfying port is not active (#7361, jmr in r36735)
1120
1121    - Fixed a bug where upgrade could create too many nested subdirectories
1122      in distpath, archive.destpath and unarchive.srcpath (#11971, jmr in
1123      r36679, r36687, r36688)
1124
1125    - Declaring a dependency on a nonexistent port now always causes an error
1126      (#10768, jmr in r36648)
1127
1128    - Explicitly use unsetenv(3) on all environment variables (#13930, #16010,
1129      #16233)
1130
1131    - Make the included tclthread compile on Leopard if configured (#13495)
1132
1133    - Allow distfiles to be disk images with "use_dmg yes" port option (#13509,
1134      ryandesign in r36708)
1135
1136    - ruby.setup now takes a type 'fetch' to just fetch/extract (eridius in r35773)
1137
1138    - Fetch now prefers mirrors with lower ping times (#14891, jmr in r35748,
1139      r35806, r35808)
1140
1141    - Fetching of daily snapshot tarballs of the ports tree as an alternative to rsync
1142      (raimue in r35647, r35648)
1143
1144    - port uninstall now takes --follow-dependents to uninstall all dependents
1145      (#14637, eridius/raimue in r34977, r35042, r36160)
1146
1147    - New fetch.type git (#14232, eridius in r34875)
1148
1149    - fixed "port mdmg" getting block size wrong for the disk image (#13968, afb in r34844)
1150
1151    - always set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, to avoid bugs with older glibtool (afb in r34541)
1152
1153    - port lint now checks all dependencies so that the ports actually exist (#14380)
1154
1155    - added target_state to avoid the need for privileges for lint/livecheck (#13458)
1156
1157    - Overhauled output for port info/deps/dependents/search (raimue in
1158      r34354, r34371, r34391, r34395, r34402, r34420)
1159
1160    - Revert the default +universal MDT/SDK to 10.4/10.4u on Tiger and 10.5/10.5 on Leopard
1161
1162    - port lint shouldn't require variable master_sites for fetch.type != standard (#14377)
1163
1164    - Add "tcldoc" documentation comments and "tcldox" Doxyfile for doxygen (#12048)
1165
1166    - Add --pretend and --nosync flags to selfupdate (raimue in r33938, r33939,
1167      r33940, r33941)
1168
1169    - Work around autoconf X11 detection bugs on darwin (afb in r33717)
1170
1171    - Fix bugs with X11 lib detection on Leopard (#14089, afb in r33716)
1172
1173    - Add configure.{optflags,m32,m64,march,mtune} (afb in r33503, r33599)
1174
1175    - Add applications_dir and frameworks_dir configuration (r33499, r33722)
1176
1177    - Remove some hardcoded paths (such as /usr/X11R6, /usr/bin/install) (afb in r33501, r33619, r33620)
1178
1179    - Add configure.{universal_target,universal_sysroot,universal_archs} (afb in r33478).
1180
1181    - Change default +universal platform back to: 10.4/10.4u.sdk/i386 ppc (r33087, r33107).
1182
1183    - Add `port platform` info action that outputs current platform (#12302, afb in r32724).
1184
1185    - Enable 64 bit environment, ppc64 x86_64, for all +universal builds (mww in r32194).
1186
1187    - Add 'merge' function for merging multiple (single arch) destroots into one (universal)
1188      destroot (mww in r31954).
1189
1190    - If checksum is mismatched, and in verbose mode, present a corrected pre-fabricated checksum statement
1191      to make it easy to update a port (jberry in r32441).
1192
1193    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_prefix"" runtime error on Panther
1194      (eridius in r32525).
1195
1196    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_channels"" runtime error on Panther
1197      (eridius in r32514).
1198
1199    - "port lint" now recognizes non-canonical modelines (afb in r32480).
1200
1201    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
1202
1203    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
1204      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_version (jmpp in r32353).
1205
1206    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents
1207      (jmpp in r32336).
1208
1209    - Fixed a Panther build failure due to missing sqlite headers (jmpp in r32212).
1210
1211    - Fixed a build failure by passing the base/src/cregistry/cregistry.a archive through ranlib (jmpp in r32105).
1212
1213
1214Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
1215
1216    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
1217      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
1218      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
1219      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
1220
1221    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
1222      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
1223
1224    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
1225
1226    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
1227      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
1228
1229    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
1230      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
1231      (#10651, jberry in r31139, r31140).
1232
1233    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
1234      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
1235      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
1236      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).
1237
1238    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
1239
1240    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
1241      multiple files (mww in r31028)
1242
1243    - add optional configure.pipe output (afb in r29604 & r30824)
1244
1245    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)
1246
1247    - add configure.[awk|bison|pkg_config|pkg_config_path] (r30761)
1248
1249    - Auto-mode for number of parallel build threads (if number of jobs is set to "0") (r30739)
1250
1251    - Add option use_parallel_build [yes|no] to declare if a port can be built in parallel (r30714).
1252
1253    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).
1254
1255    - Display warnings when using old versions of Mac OS X and Xcode Tools
1256      (#12794, afb in r30338 & r30477)
1257
1258    - Remove configure.macosx_deployment_target, add global macosx_deployment_target
1259      (eridius in r30396).
1260
1261    - add support for LZMA compression, for making .tlz archives (afb in r30307)
1262
1263    - add configure.[perl|python|ruby] for interpreters, .install for avoiding breakage
1264      due to coreutils, .libs
1265
1266    - added startupitem.netchange boolean flag (#12931, N_Ox in r30086).
1267
1268    - added generic GNU livecheck (N_Ox in r29812).
1269
1270    - fixed bug where all .mpkg packages were missing their welcome page (afb in r29517)
1271
1272    - better defaults for implicit ui_channels behaviour (eridius in r29498).
1273
1274    - prevent creating PKG packages with /etc or /var or /tmp (#2102, afb in r29445)
1275
1276    - add optional configure.ccache and configure.distcc filters (#5390, afb in r29438)
1277
1278    - Explicitly sort fs-traverse so it behaves predictably on Linux systems
1279      (#12622, eridius in r29412).
1280
1281    - add configure.objc/objcflags for Objective-C
1282
1283    - add optional build.nice (0) and build.jobs (1) modifiers (afb in r28634 & r28673)
1284
1285    - make tclobjc1.0 compile with GNUstep and NXConstantString class (afb in r28668)
1286
1287    - fix bsdmake/gnumake defaults for FreeBSD and Linux platforms (afb in r28660)
1288
1289    - port lint command, for Portfile verification (#463, afb in r28170)
1290
1291    - add configure.macosx_deployment_target for configure flags
1292
1293    - add configure.javac/classpath for Java
1294
1295    - add configure.fflags/fcflags/f90flags for Fortran flags
1296
1297    - Mark "python" group code as deprecated
1298
1299    - Add group code for Python 3.0
1300
1301    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
1302
1303    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
1304      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
1305
1306    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
1307
1308    - Chris Pickel's GSoC2007 work: registry2.0 & cregistry (mainly r27518 & r27520)
1309
1310    - Eugene Pimenov's GSoC2007 work: Trace lib on unix sockets (r26682).
1311
1312    - Elias Pipping's GSoC2007 work: merge.rb on his personal /users/pipping svn dir.
1313
1314
1315Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
1316
1317    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
1318      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
1319      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
1320
1321
1322Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
1323
1324    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
1325      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
1326
1327    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
1328      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
1329
1330    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
1331
1332    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
1333      (mww in r27199).
1334
1335    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
1336
1337    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
1338
1339    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
1340
1341    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
1342      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
1343
1344    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
1345
1346    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
1347
1348    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
1349
1350
1351Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
1352
1353    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
1354      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
1355      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
1356      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
1357      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
1358
1359    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
1360
1361    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
1362
1363    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
1364      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
1365      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
1366      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
1367      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
1368
1369    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
1370
1371    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
1372      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
1373
1374    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
1375
1376    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
1377      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
1378
1379    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
1380      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
1381      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
1382      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
1383      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
1384      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
1385
1386    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
1387
1388    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
1389
1390    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
1391
1392    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
1393      to detect problems between required and negated variants
1394      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
1395
1396    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
1397      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
1398      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
1399      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
1400
1401    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
1402      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
1403
1404    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
1405      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
1406      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
1407
1408    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
1409      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
1410         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
1411         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
1412      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
1413      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
1414      (jberry r25795).
1415
1416    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
1417
1418    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
1419      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
1420      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
1421
1422    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
1423      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
1424
1425    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
1426      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
1427
1428    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
1429      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
1430      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
1431      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
1432      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
1433      (boeyms in r25310)
1434
1435Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
1436
1437    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
1438
1439Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
1440
1441    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
1442
1443    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
1444      This allows information about variants to be displayed (e.g. dependencies).
1445      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
1446      (eridius r25255).
1447
1448    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
1449
1450    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
1451      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
1452      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
1453
1454    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
1455      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
1456
1457    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
1458      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
1459      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
1460      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
1461      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
1462      (boeyms r25110)
1463
1464    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
1465      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
1466      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
1467      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
1468
1469    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
1470
1471    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
1472      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
1473
1474    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
1475      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
1476
1477    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
1478
1479    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
1480      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
1481
1482    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
1483      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
1484      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
1485      (jberry r25146)
1486
1487    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
1488         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
1489         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
1490         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
1491           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
1492           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
1493
1494        Example:
1495
1496            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
1497                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
1498            }
1499
1500        (jberry r25147)
1501
1502    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
1503      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
1504
1505
1506Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
1507
1508    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
1509      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
1510      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
1511      it differently.
1512
1513    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
1514      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
1515      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
1516      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
1517      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
1518
1519    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
1520      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
1521      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
1522
1523    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
1524
1525    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
1526
1527    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
1528      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
1529
1530    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
1531
1532    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
1533
1534    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
1535      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
1536      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
1537
1538    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
1539      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
1540
1541    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
1542      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
1543
1544    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
1545      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
1546
1547    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
1548
1549    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
1550      (pguyot r24273).
1551
1552    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
1553      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
1554      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
1555
1556    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
1557      This work is in progress. (jberry)
1558       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
1559       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
1560         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
1561
1562    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
1563      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
1564
1565    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
1566      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
1567
1568    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
1569      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
1570
1571    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
1572
1573    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
1574
1575Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
1576
1577    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
1578      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
1579      (jberry r24151).
1580
1581    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
1582      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
1583      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
1584      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
1585      (pipping r24148).
1586
1587Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
1588
1589    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
1590      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
1591
1592    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
1593      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
1594
1595    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
1596      for submitter information.
1597      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
1598        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
1599        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
1600            - PORTSRC
1601            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
1602            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
1603          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
1604       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
1605
1606    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
1607      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
1608
1609    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
1610      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
1611      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
1612      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1613
1614    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1615
1616    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
1617      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
1618
1619Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
1620
1621    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
1622      (pipping in r23343).
1623
1624    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
1625      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
1626
1627    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
1628      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
1629      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
1630
1631    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
1632      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
1633
1634    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
1635      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
1636      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
1637
1638    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
1639
1640    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
1641      r22313).
1642
1643    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
1644      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
1645      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
1646      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
1647
1648    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
1649      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
1650
1651    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
1652      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
1653
1654    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
1655      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
1656
1657    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
1658      r23967)
1659
1660
1661Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
1662
1663    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
1664      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
1665
1666    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
1667
1668    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
1669      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
1670
1671    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
1672
1673    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
1674
1675    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
1676      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
1677
1678    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
1679
1680    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
1681
1682    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
1683      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
1684
1685    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
1686      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
1687
1688    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
1689      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
1690      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
1691
1692    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
1693
1694    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
1695      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
1696
1697    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
1698      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
1699
1700    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
1701      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
1702
1703    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
1704
1705    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
1706
1707    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
1708      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
1709
1710    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
1711
1712    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
1713
1714    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
1715
1716    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
1717      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
1718
1719    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
1720      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
1721
1722    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
1723
1724    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
1725
1726
1727Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
1728
1729    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
1730      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
1731
1732    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
1733
1734    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
1735      code. (pguyot)
1736
1737    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
1738      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
1739
1740    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
1741      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
1742
1743    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
1744      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
1745      /usr/local. (pguyot)
1746
1747    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
1748
1749    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
1750      (josh_root, blb)
1751
1752    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
1753      are modified. (pguyot)
1754
1755    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
1756      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1757
1758    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
1759      variable. (pguyot)
1760
1761    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
1762      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
1763      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
1764
1765Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
1766
1767    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
1768
1769    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
1770      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
1771
1772    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
1773      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
1774      SVN. (pguyot)
1775
1776    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
1777      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
1778
1779    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
1780      (jberry)
1781
1782    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
1783      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
1784
1785    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
1786
1787    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
1788
1789    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1790
1791    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
1792       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
1793       * mention interactive and batch modes
1794       * document extensions to info command.
1795
1796    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
1797
1798    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
1799      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
1800      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
1801
1802Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
1803
1804    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
1805      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
1806      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
1807
1808    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
1809      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
1810
1811    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
1812      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
1813
1814    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
1815
1816    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
1817
1818    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
1819      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
1820
1821    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
1822      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
1823
1824    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
1825
1826    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
1827      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
1828
1829    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
1830
1831    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
1832      (jberry)
1833
1834    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
1835      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
1836      (landonf)
1837
1838    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
1839      installed. (jmpp)
1840
1841    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
1842      project path. (pguyot)
1843
1844    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
1845      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
1846
1847    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
1848      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
1849
1850    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
1851      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
1852
1853    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
1854      (olegb)
1855
1856    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
1857      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
1858
1859    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
1860      iterating). (jberry)
1861
1862    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
1863      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
1864      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
1865
1866    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
1867
1868    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
1869      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
1870      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
1871      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
1872      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
1873      shoot yourself. (jberry)
1874
1875    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
1876      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
1877
1878    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
1879      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
1880
1881    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
1882
1883    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
1884      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
1885        several bug fixes.
1886      * cleaned up the code.
1887      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
1888        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
1889        reported creations).
1890      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
1891        overwritten.
1892
1893    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
1894
1895    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
1896      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
1897      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
1898
1899        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
1900          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
1901          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
1902
1903        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
1904          input following any commands given as arguments.
1905
1906        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
1907          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
1908          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
1909            #!/usr/bin/env portf
1910
1911        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
1912
1913        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
1914
1915        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
1916          interactive/batch mode.
1917
1918        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
1919
1920        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
1921          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
1922          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
1923
1924    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
1925      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
1926      (jberry).
1927
1928    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
1929      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
1930
1931    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
1932      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
1933      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
1934
1935    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
1936      (pguyot)
1937
1938    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
1939
1940    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
1941      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
1942      (jberry)
1943
1944    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
1945      MacOS X. (mww)
1946
1947    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
1948      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
1949      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
1950      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
1951      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
1952      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
1953      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
1954      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
1955      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
1956      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
1957      (jberry) 2006-02-16
1958
1959Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
1960
1961    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
1962      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
1963      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
1964      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
1965      fat, configure as follows:
1966        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
1967                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
1968
1969    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
1970      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
1971      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
1972
1973Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
1974
1975    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
1976      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
1977      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
1978        port uninstall vim @1.0
1979      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
1980      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
1981
1982    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
1983      destroot, too. (mww)
1984
1985    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
1986      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
1987
1988    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
1989      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
1990      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
1991
1992    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
1993      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
1994      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
1995
1996    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
1997      groups of ports.
1998      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
1999      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
2000
2001      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
2002        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
2003
2004      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
2005      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
2006      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
2007      The selectors are:
2008      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
2009      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
2010      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
2011
2012    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
2013      ports or groups of ports.
2014      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
2015
2016    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
2017      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
2018      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
2019      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
2020
2021    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
2022      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
2023
2024    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
2025      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
2026      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
2027
2028    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
2029      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
2030      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
2031      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
2032      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
2033      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
2034
2035    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
2036      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
2037      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
2038
2039    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
2040      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
2041
2042    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
2043      ones considered harmful (blb)
2044
2045    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
2046      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
2047
2048    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
2049      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
2050
2051    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
2052        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
2053          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
2054        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
2055          reports (pguyot)
2056        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
2057
2058    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
2059      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
2060
2061    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
2062
2063    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
2064      echo (the expanded arguments),
2065      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
2066      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
2067      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
2068      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
2069      (jberry)
2070
2071    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
2072      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
2073      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
2074      in a similar fashion (jberry)
