6Release 2.2.1 (2013-10-26 by jmr)
7    - Fixed a problem where dependency calculation could sometimes fail for
8      ports that only support 32-bit architectures when the configured
9      build_arch is 64-bit and dependencies thus need to be +universal

11
12    - Fixed a potential crash in the strsed procedure (toby in r110985)

52
53    - Setting configure.compiler will now automatically add a dependency if
54      the chosen compiler is provided by a port. (#32542, cal in r102932)
55
56    - Add 'port space --total' which displays the grand total only.
57      (raimue in r102248)
58
59    - Added 'subport:' pseudo-portname that expands to ports that provide
60      a matching subport; added 'subportof:' pseudo-portname that expands to
61      the list of subports of the given port name

67
68    - Began using sandbox-exec(1) on 10.5+ to prevent commands executed using

81      ccache >= 3.1.7 by running the initialization step as the macportsuser.
82      (raimue in r97868)
83
84    - Fix an endless loop that could be triggered in rev-upgrade when a broken
85      port is not in the index, e.g. when it has been deleted from the tree,
86      or it was installed directly from a Portfile not in the tree.
87      (cal in r100129, jmr in r101313)
88
89    - Set a busy timeout on SQLite connections to prevent MacPorts from

103
104    - Fixed an incorrect lint error about the port directory name when a full
105      @macports.org maintainer address is used. (#35925, ryandesign in r97264)
106
107    - Fixed creation of disk images with flat packages. (jmr in r99167)
108
109    - Fixed a bug where not all requested variants would be passed on to
110      dependencies when building an mpkg. (#36363, jmr in r100679)
111
112    - Added configure.compiler options macports-clang-3.2 and
113      macports-clang-3.3 (jeremyhu, ryandesign, jmr in r92588, r101163,
114      r101166, r101270)
115
116    - Added configure.compiler options macports-dragonegg-3.0 through

130      continue (jmr in r95382)
131
132    - Added a log message when everything to be installed has an unsatisfied
133      dependency, such as in the case of circular dependencies (jmr in r93962)
134
135    - Fixed incorrect error message when installing a port that has a
136      dependency that is not in the index (#31130, jmr in r93511)
137
138Release 2.1.1 (2012-05-19 by jmr):

140      indicate a port number (#32018, jmr in r93258)
141
142    - Do not print detailed progress information in rev-upgrade when stdout is
143      not a terminal (#34480, cal in r93221,r93222)
144
145    - Made rev-upgrade avoid trying to upgrade ports that are not in the index
146      (jmr in r93197)
147
148    - Fixed rev-upgrade disabling source-only mode in its first upgrade pass
149      (jmr in r93153)
150
151    - Fixed incorrect rebuild order in rev-upgrade (cal in r93129)

155
156    - Fix database upgrade on Tiger, where SQLite doesn't support ALTER TABLE
157      ADD COLUMN (#34463, cal in r93256)
158
159Release 2.1.0 (2012-05-15 by jmr):
160    - New configure.compiler options: macports-clang-2.9, macports-clang-3.0,
161      macports-clang-3.1, macports-gcc-4.7, macports-gcc-4.8
162      (jeremyhu in r86719, ryandesign in r91521)
163
164    - Avoid using pkg-config to find sqlite3 in our configure script unless it
165      can't be found by other means, because some third-party packages
166      incorrectly install a /usr/bin/pkg-config that points to an incompatible
167      copy of sqlite3. (#30932, dluke/jmr in r91512)
168
169    - 'port pkg' and 'port mpkg' will now create flat packages (i.e. a xar
170      archive rather than a directory) on 10.6+.
171      (jmr in r91317, r91329, r91331, r91437)
172
173    - Fixed dependencies sometimes being installed multiple times when
174      required with different archs. (#31794, jmr in r91357)

177      archive is available for download (and port is configured to use it).
178      (jmr in r91196, r91217)
179
180    - Added new config file archive_sites.conf, which can be used to configure
181      additional archive download sources. Each source has an associated
182      archive type; portarchivetype is now only used when creating archives
183      locally. Sources also have an associated prefix, applications_dir and
184      frameworks_dir, and if any of these do not match the current values, the
185      source is not used. (jmr in r91009)
186
187    - Xcode 4.3 support: Search harder for developer directory; advise user to
188      run xcode-select when necessary, searching for Xcode and suggesting
189      xcode-select commands.
190      (jberry, jmr in r89970,r89971,r89972,r89996,r89999,r90003,r90005-r90009,
191      r90018-r90019,r90024,r90031)
192
193    - warn about non-existing developer_dir when it's set in macports.conf
194      (cal in 90802)
195
196    - port automatically installs bsdmake when there's no bsdmake in $PATH and a
197      port sets build.type bsd (#33355, cal in r90650)
198
199    - Added -W option for reinplace that sets a base directory that all file
200      arguments are interpreted as being relative to. (raimue in r90610)
201
202    - Added macports.conf options 'host_blacklist' and 'preferred_hosts', used
203      for indicating lists of download hosts that should not be used or should
204      be used preferentially, respectively. These override the usual ping time
205      check. Ping times are also now cached for 24 hours. (jmr in r89459)
206
207    - Added 'rev-upgrade' action checking for broken linkage and rebuilding
208      ports containing broken files. Made rev-upgrade run automatically after
209      each upgrade or install.
210      (cal in branch gsoc11-rev-upgrade, merge in r88376, also cal, raimue, jmr
211      in r88377,r88411,r88441,r88511,r88666,r88732,r89180,r89659,r89661,r90102,
212      r90381)
213
214    - Added options controlling rev-upgrade behavior to macports.conf
215      (jmr, cal in r88725,r88794,r89189)
216
217    - port livecheck regex finds multiple matches on the same line
218      (raimue in r88031)
219
220    - Several improvements to port lint:
221      licenses, subversion properties, maintainer addresses
222      (#30194, snc, raimue in r85929, r86016, r89428, r89610)
223
224    - Added license_noconflict option to specify dependencies for which the
225      maintainer has manually checked license compatibility and wishes to
226      overrule the conservative automated checks. (jmr in r89004)
227
228    - Xcode 4.3 support: Use xcrun -find to find xcode compiler if it's not
229      found in /usr/bin.
230      (jberry, jmr in r88540,r88541,r88546,r88777,r88779,r88787,r89359,r89984,r90028)
231
232    - Added options compiler.blacklist, compiler.whitelist, and
233      compiler.fallback; to allow blacklisting, whitelisting, and setting the
234      fallback order for configure.compiler values, respectively.
235      (#30041, jmr in r88676)
236
237    - Fix sync with subdirectory of Subversion 1.7-format working copy
238      (#33573, jmr in 86872)
239
240    - Fixed conflicts not being checked for when installing ports that have no
241      dependencies. (#31571, dports in r85382)
242
243    - dmg postflight: quote all paths to handle the increasingly frequent
244      occurrence that $HOME contains spaces (#33583, ryandesign in r84345)
245
246    - dmg postflight: adjust wording of some messages (ryandesign in r84344)
247
248    - The deprecated Portfile options svn.tag, distcheck.check and
249      livecheck.check have been removed. (raimue in r82763)
250
251    - Implement new option-replace using lsearch/lreplace. The old behavior is
252      deprecated for option-replace with only one argument, but can still be
253      found in option-strsed.
254      (raimue in r82760, r82761)
255
256    - Added 'buildfromsource' macports.conf setting, which allows permanently
257      selecting the behaviour of the -s or -b option. (jmr in r81540)
258
259Release 2.0.4 (2012-02-25 by jmr)
260    - Added -locale option for reinplace (jeremyhu in r89839)
261
262    - Xcode 4.3 support: Change home directory for MacPorts user to
263      ${prefix}/var/macports/home.
264      (jberry, jmr in r89988, r89993, r90002, r90010, r90011)
265
266    - set env(HOME) to ${workpath}/.home when building ports
267      (#31827, jmr in r89994, r90004)
268
269    - Fix use_xmkmf to honor xmkmf.env for its make Makefiles phase
270      (#31504, jeremyhu in r89537, r89538, r89539)
271
272    - Added configure.cxx setting when configure.compiler is apple-gcc-4.2
273      (jeremyhu in r80248)
274
275    - Xcode 4.3 support: added packagemaker_path macports.conf setting
276      (jmr in r90058)
277
278    - Resolve ambiguity in selection in portlists
279      (jberry in r88179, r88185)
280
281    - Xcode 4.3 support: updated default developer_dir location for 4.3
282      (jmr in r90016)
283
284    - Xcode 4.3 support: use compilers in /usr/bin instead of developer_dir
285      when possible, as the latter has proven to be volatile.
286      (jmr in r90015)
287
288    - Xcode 4.3 support: updated SDK paths for 4.3 (jmr in r90000)
289
290    - Work around broken FTP proxy support in some versions of libcurl
291      (jmr in r84351, r88045)
292
293Release 2.0.3 (2011-09-05 by raimue)
294    - Fix a regression introduced in 2.0.2 when fetching with a VCS
295      (#31073, jmr in r83471)
296
297Release 2.0.2 (2011-09-01 by jmr):
298    - Messages recommending running selfupdate will no longer be printed when
299      selfupdate is being run. (#23094, jmr in r83270, r83391)
300
301    - The PortIndex will not be regenerated during selfupdate when base is
302      outdated. This avoids failure to index ports that use features only
303      available in the current version. (#30739, jmr in r83271)
304
305    - Fixed build failures when the TMPDIR environment variable is set to a
306      directory that is not writable by the macports user.
307      (#30749, jmr in r83267)
308
309    - Fixed error when checksumming distfiles with names containing spaces.
310      (#28568, jmr in r83149)
311

313      dependents are processed before the ports they depend on.
314      (#8431, jmr in r82947)
315
316    - Fixed an issue where a non-universal version of a port could be
317      installed as a dependency as well as the universal version, with
318      unpredictable results, when some ports in the dependency graph needed
319      the universal version but others didn't. (jmr in r82924)
320
321    - Now using a temp dir inside ${prefix} when activating, as /tmp or
322      /var/folders may be on a different volume. (jmr in r82767)
323
324    - Fixed extracting portfile-only archives. (#31033, jmr in r81830)
325
326    - Fixed adduser and addgroup procedures not re-dropping privileges when
327      done. (jmr in r81630)
328
329    - Fixed error activating ports with names containing the string "cpio".
330      (#30532, jmr in r81577)
331
332Release 2.0.1 (2011-08-02 by jmr):
333    - Fixed errors when installing some archives built on a case-sensitive
334      filesystem onto a case-insensitive one. (#30373, jmr in r81562)
335
336    - Fixed users created by MacPorts showing up in the GUI in some places on
337      Lion. (#30168, jeremyhu in r81558)

340
341    - Added progress output to port image conversion script.
342      (#30347, jmr in r81464)
343
344    - Now doing a better job of avoiding UID conflicts with non-local users
345      when creating the 'macports' user. (#30464, jmr in r81414, r81415) Also
346      improved Tiger compatibility in this area. (jmr in r81454, r81467)
347
348    - Fixed 'port selfupdate' exiting with non-zero status after installing a
349      new version of base. (jmr in r81371)
350
351    - Added --subports to options accepted by 'port info'. (jmr in r81234)
352
353    - Fixed incorrect info sometimes being added to PortIndex entries when
354      using subports. (#30463, jmr in r81361)
355
356    - Fixed descriptions not being shown for default variants. (jmr in r80971)
357
358    - Fixed 'port variants --index'. (jmr in r80969)
359
360Release 2.0.0 (2011-07-22 by jmr):
361
362    - Multiple ports can now be defined in one Portfile using the 'subport'
363      procedure. This reduces code duplication when several ports use very
364      similar code. (jmr in r78062)
365
366    - Privilege dropping is now on by default. The runtime user can be changed
367      when building from source but defaults to 'macports'; this user is
368      created at install time. (jmr in r79025)
369
370    - Fetching from some extremely slow or partially unresponsive servers
371      should now time out as expected. (raimue in r71038)
372
373    - The registry is now "vacuumed" (compacted/defragmented) after
374      uninstalling ports. (jmr in r70608)
375
376    - Downloaded archives are now checked for integrity using digital
377      signatures. Sync and selfupdate can also use a signed tarball. New
378      pubkeys.conf file allows configuring keys to trust.
379      (jmr in r68996, r79093)
380
381    - Added 'actinact' pseudo-portname that expands to installed ports with an
382      active version and at least one inactive version.
383      (#27666, jmr in r79421, based on patch from gmail.com:ww.galen)
384
385    - Added --size option for 'contents' action that makes it print the size
386      of each file. (#27245, jmr in r79365, based on patch from
387      gmail.com:ww.galen)
388
389    - Added 'space' action to show the disk space used by ports' active files.
390      (#27244, jmr in r79349, based on patch from gmail.com:ww.galen)
391
392    - Actions can be abbreviated to an unambiguous prefix of the full name.
393      (#27242, patch from gmail.com:ww.galen committed in r79259)
394
395    - Fixed error when activating ports whose version contains an underscore
396      followed by an integer and a dash. (#28084, jmr in r79167)
397
398    - Deactivating a port that has dependents no longer needs to be forced
399      when the dependents are all inactive. (#29505, jmr in r78086)
400
401    - New option 'add_users' has been added. Setting it will ensure that the
402      listed users are created before all operations that may require them to
403      exist. (#11563, jmr in r78660)
404
405    - 'port info --index' should be much faster and will work with the
406      'current' pseudo-port provided the port has been indexed.
407      (#13673, jmr in r78621)
408
409    - Relocation is explicitly disabled when building pkgs on 10.6, so Apple's
410      Installer won't attempt to overwrite other copies of the same software
411      not installed by MacPorts. (#25174, jmr in r78178)
412
413    - Non-Darwin platforms can once again build base against OpenSSL for
414      checksum support. (#26813, afb in r77865)
415
416    - It is now safe to set svn.post_args, rather than that option being
417      reserved for svn.url. (#27454, jmr in r73825)
418
419    - Variants specified when running 'port mpkg' are now set in the
420      dependencies as well. (#27231, jmr in r73303)
421
422    - Fixed various issues with privilege dropping.
423      (#26899, jmr in r69453 etc.)
424
425    - Trace mode no longer fails on 10.6. (#21582, jmr in r74318, r74369)
426
427    - Ports that create StartupItems (aka launchd plists) should now be
428      installable by unprivileged users. (#10879, jmr in r66700, r75143)
429
430    - Fixed incorrect output from 'port dependents' when using newer SQLite
431      versions. (#27506, patch from gmail.com:mmpestorich committed in r76827)
432
433    - The flat registry format is no longer available. Setting portdbformat to
434      'flat' in macports.conf will result in the sqlite registry being used.
435      (jmr in r77681)
436
437    - Port images are now stored as archives. Archive mode is now effectively
438      always on. Among other benefits, this fixes some bugs with the handling
439      of hard links installed by ports (e.g. #13601).
440
441      Direct mode is no longer available. Existing port image directories, and
442      installed files for direct mode, will be converted to archives when
443      upgrading.
444
445      (#19458, branch by blb, merged by jmr in r77511)
446
447    - master_site_local, patch_site_local, and archive_site_local can be set
448      in macports.conf, with the same effects as the corresponding environment
449      variables. (jmr in r74924)
450
451    - Added 'logfile' action that prints the path to a port's log file.
452      (jmr in r74655)
453
454    - Computing large dependency trees that contain the same port(s) multiple
455      times should be considerably faster. (jmr in r73133)
456
457    - New configure.compiler options: macports-gcc-4.6, macports-llvm-gcc-4.2,
458      macports-clang (jmr in r71487; mfeiri in r72936, r72937)
459
460    - Add '-n' option to reinplace (#26406, ryandesign in r73227)
461
462    - Add new ccache_dir and ccache_size options, default path is
463      ${portdbpath}/build/.ccache and a size of 2 GB.
464      (raimue in r71604, r71606)
465
466    - Add 'system -W path' which changes to the given directory before
467      executing the command.
468      (raimue in r71380, r71389)
469
470    - Add -w to build.cmd and destroot.cmd if using gnumake
471      (raimue in r71370)
472
473    - Add livecheck.ignore_sslcert; setting fetch.ignore_sslcert does no
474      longer apply to livecheck. distcheck now respects fetch.ignore_sslcert.
475      (#17063, raimue in r70975, r70979, r70982)
476
477    - Add SHA256 checksums in addition to MD5, SHA1 and RIPEMD160.
478      (afb in r57888, r57913; snc in r68955)
479
480    - Add @pkgdep lines to archives, with build-time dependencies.
481      (afb in r76919)
482
483Release 1.9.2 (2010-11-07 by jmr):
484
485    - Added more locking to avoid TOCTOU errors when running multiple port(1)
486      instances (#19935, jmr in r70174)
487
488    - Fixed -q not suppressing output from 'port lint' (#25880, jmr in r70163)
489
490    - Added a helpful message when there is a checksum mismatch and the
491      distfile appears to incorrectly be a HTML document (#25128,
492      ryandesign/jmr in r70143)
493
494    - Now checking early on if there are sufficient privileges to install,
495      and failing before building anything if not (#25671, jmr in r70135)
496
497    - Avoided possible failure when the -u option is used when upgrading a
498      port that is marked as being replaced by another (jmr in r69022)
499
500    - Using the platform-specific PortIndex when syncing using a daily tarball
501      (jmr in r68786)
502
503    - Fixed failures when fetch target is run without root privileges and the
504      port is then installed with them (#25418, #25937; jmr in r69334, r70271)
505
506    - Fixed upgrading ports where the new version differs from the old version
507      only in epoch (jmr in r69436)
508
509    - Fixed [un]setrequested when using the flat registry format
510      (#26352, jmr in r69387)
511
512    - Fixed checking for conflicting ports before installation
513      (#25386, jmr in r69105)
514
515    - Now gracefully handling distfiles that use a tag that is not
516      associated with any sites (#25332, jmr in r68965)
517
518    - Fixed running 'port deps' on multiple ports, and changed its output
519      format back to how it was in 1.8 (#25324, jmr in r68950)
520
521    - Fixed premature privilege dropping (#25331, jmr in r68952)
522
523Release 1.9.1 (2010-06-18 by jmr):
524    - Fixed a couple of problems with new 1.9 features when using the flat
525      registry format (jmr in r68910, r68913)
526
527    - Ports using the replaced_by option will once again be deactivated when
528      an upgrade is performed on them (#25270, jmr in r68872)
529
530    - Fixed the possibility of some empty directories being left behind when
531      a port is deactivated (#25268, jmr in r68864)
532
533    - Fixed failure to detect conflicts with files that are not provided by
534      a port before activation starts (#25255, jmr in r68849)
535
536    - Fixed problems with distfile names containing spaces (#25245, #25246;
537      jmr in r68816, r68817)
538
539    - Fixed a problem with uninstall when using direct mode, and started
540      running pre/post activate and deactivate procedures when installing and
541      uninstalling in direct mode, respectively (#11562, jmr in r68697)
542
543    - fixed a crasher that affected Tiger (#25194, jmr in r68675, r68680,
544      r68691)
545
546Release 1.9.0 (2010-06-08 by jmr):
547
548    - It is no longer possible to use include statements in Portfiles
549      (raimue in r68206)
550
551    - Command line options can be abbreviated if unambiguous
552      (raimue in r66837)
553
554    - Added a new variable 'os.subplatform'. When os.platform is darwin, the
555      subplatform is either 'macosx' or 'puredarwin'.
556
557    - 'platform' no longer creates a variant, instead it executes the code in
558      the body immediately if the current platform matches the one specified.
559
560    - Using a Portfile with a modification date in the future now causes an
561      informative error early on, instead of just discarding the workdir at
562      the start of every phase. (#24717, raimue in r65246)
563
564    - Fetching from servers that require a cookie to be set now works.
565      (#24584, raimue in r66785)
566
567    - Fixed an error when everything is deleted from the patchfiles list.
568      (#24178, raimue in r65243)
569
570    - Added 'license:' pseudo-port selector. (#24123, perry in r65033)
571
572    - Added new fetch.type 'bzr'. (#23436, perry in r65096)
573
574    - Added 'rdeps' and 'rdependents' actions, recursive versions of 'deps'
575      and 'dependents' respectively. Also added 'depof:', 'rdepof:',
576      'dependentof:' and 'rdependentof:' pseudo-port selectors, for specifying
577      the ports that are dependencies or dependents of the given port.
578      (#22346, jmr in r65858/r66198)
579
580    - Updated the description of the search action in the port(1) man page.
581      (#23749, jmr in r66670)
582
583    - Dry-run now uses /dev/null as the statefile, which prevents a couple of
584      problems involving locking and variant checks.
585      (#21794, #21962; jmr in r66921)
586
587    - The list of dependencies to be installed is now displayed immediately
588      after computing them. (#21540, jmr in r66321)
589
590    - The quick index is now reloaded after syncing in interactive mode, which
591      prevents errors due to it not matching the updated PortIndex.
592      (#20874, jmr in r66319, refinement of patch from carrel.org:edward)
593
594    - The architectures of dependencies are checked when installing a port. If
595      a dependency does not provide the required arch(s), it is rebuilt with
596      +universal if that is possible and will help, otherwise the install fails
597      and an error message explains why. (#20728, jmr in r65087)
598
599    - New supported_archs option allows ports to indicate which architectures
600      they can be built for. The default values of configure.build_arch and
601      configure.universal_archs change based on this list. Set this to
602      'noarch' if a port installs only architecture-independent files.
603      (#20739, jmr in r64372/r64945)
604
605    - Declaring a variant that requires one or more other variants will now
606      correctly set the required variants, so they can be checked with
607      variant_isset. (#19224, jmr in r66642)
608
609    - 'port outdated' now indicates the reason why a port that appears to have
610      the same version as that in the tree is considered outdated. Possible
611      reasons are that the epoch is higher, or the installed version was built
612      on a different OS version. (#19138, jmr in r64960)
613
614    - Distfile names are now percent-escaped in the download URLs when needed.
615      (#18736, jmr in r66794)
616
617    - buildnicevalue is now applied to configure and destroot commands, and to
618      build commands with unusual names. (#18304, raimue in r65076/r65808)
619
620    - Removed hardcoded /opt/local prefix from the base dmg resources.
621      (#17633, jmr in r66776)
622
623    - Fixed an error that occurred when archive mode was enabled but
624      ${prefix}/var/macports/packages did not exist. (#17579, jmr in r66775)
625
626    - Syncing rsync sources now tries to get a platform-specific version of
627      the PortIndex from the server, and skips this if the local copy is less
628      than a day old. All sync methods now update the PortIndex at the end.
629      (#17157, jmr in r66846/r67207)
630
631    - portindex(1) now skips parsing Portfiles whose modification time is
632      older than the current PortIndex, instead reusing the existing entry.
633      (#16235, jmr in r66845)
634
635    - Added a 'requested' flag to the registry that indicates which ports were
636      installed explicitly (as opposed to as a dependency of something else).
637      This enables the new 'requested', 'unrequested' and 'leaves' pseudo-
638      ports, as well as the --follow-dependencies option for uninstall.
639      The setrequested and unsetrequested actions will set and clear the flag,
640      respectively.
641      (#15260, jmr in r64517, r64663, r65546, r66037, r66200, r66215)
642
643    - The macports1.0 directory is now installed to
644      ${prefix}/share/macports/Tcl rather than /Library/Tcl. A symlink will be
645      installed in the old location if there is nothing there already, so
646      'package require macports' will still work in tclsh.
647      (#12943, jmr in r65055)
648
649    - Added warning and error messags when Xcode is old enough to cause
650      problems or too old to use at all, respectively. (#12794, jmr in r66771)
651
652    - Removed the rather outdated copy of sqlite3 from the source tree, made
653      the sqlite3 directory configurable, and added defaults for non-darwin
654      platforms. (#12231, jmr in r64358/r64363)
655
656    - There is a new 'archivefetch' target which is run before unarchive when
657      archive mode is enabled, and attempts to download the archive from a
658      server. There are currently no sites configured to download from (these
659      are stored in the ports tree like the mirror sites used for fetch), but
660      you can set ARCHIVE_SITE_LOCAL in the environment. Note that there is no
661      integrity checking for archives yet. (#8571, jmr in r64816)
662
663    - Now recording negative variants in the registry, which stops deselected
664      variants from being reactivated on upgrade due to default_variants or
665      variants.conf settings. (#2377, jmr in r64533)
666
667    - Added support for pre- and post- procedures for the activate, deactivate
668      and uninstall targets. This feature requires portdbformat sqlite. There
669      was limited support for pre- and post-activate previously, but the
670      procedures were only run when installing the port, not when activating
671      an inactive version. (#1068, #4228, #18273; jmr in r64638/r64639)
672
673    - Integrated the sqlite-based registry2.0 code. The portdbformat variable
674      in macports.conf can be set to 'sqlite' to enable it. Existing flat
675      receipts will be converted the first time port(1) is run with sufficient
676      privileges. Original code by sfiera, fixed and integrated by jmr in
677      r63398 and following. The new format lacks a number of problems that the
678      old one suffers from, including #13054 (dependencies from old port
679      versions stick around across upgrades) and #14123 (files whose paths
680      differ only in case are left behind when uninstalling).
681
682    - Fixed file list in +CONTENTS file in archives. (#21864, jmr in r59882)
683
684    - Fixed a few issues reported with building MacPorts on Linux. (#22716)
685
686    - Upgrade will now always choose the port that is active when following
687      dependencies that could be satisfied by more than one port and more than
688      one of these is installed, instead of choosing the one actually named in
689      the depspec. (#23921, jmr in r60883)
690
691    - Extracting from a disk image ("use_dmg yes") no longer fails when there
692      is a space in $worksrcdir. (#23456, raimue in r67089)
693
694    - Added a configure.sdkroot option which can be used to build against a
695      Mac OS X SDK. It is empty by default unless the value of
696      macosx_deployment_target is not the current OS version, or the universal
697      variant is set and the current platform is PowerPC Tiger. It is also
698      possible to set macosx_deployment_target globally in macports.conf now,
699      but this is unsupported. (#19875, jmr in r66924)
700
701    - Add "fs-traverse -tails" which only returns the part following the
702      specified directory (#21873, raimue in r65785)
703
704    - Allow gcc45 port to be used in configure.compiler (ryandesign in r62223)
705
706    - svn checkouts now use peg revisions instead of operative revisions,
707      so they'll continue to work if a repository gets reorganized
708      (#20777, ryandesign in r60573)
709
710    - Print the location of the log file when a target fails (jmr in r60769)
711
712    - Use CommonCrypto/CommonDigest instead of OpenSSL libcrypto.
713      (toby in r58131, jberry in r59715)
714
715    - New "patch.type gnu" for GNU patch, similar to "build.type gnu"
716      for GNU make. Only makes a difference for BSD patch and BSD make.
717      (afb in r58020)
718
719    - Updated the FreeBSD package (ObjC/Foundation is now optional).
720      (afb in r57889)
721
722    - Don't use "make -j1" for build.jobs=1, but prefer "make" instead.
723      (afb in r57998)
724
725    - Add new "use_xz yes" port option to allow distfiles in xz format.
726      (afb in r57827)
727
728    - Archive mode now uses build_arch in archive names rather than os.arch.
729      (snc in r58977)
730
731    - Add new log command and keeping of debug output for easy access
732      after port has run (GSoC 2009 logging project by enl, merged in r60372)
733
734    - Some of the build_arch flags now appear in LDFLAGS as well, fixing
735      several ports when building for a different architecture (jeremyhu in
736      r60662, jmr in r60680)
737
738    - Fixed 'merge' proc for paths with spaces, and for symlinks on Snow
739      Leopard, and added an error message for when 'merge' is not called
740      correctly (#21852, ryandesign in r58776, r58777, r58778)
741
742Release 1.8.2 (2010-01-01 by jmr):
743
744    - Fixed 'port load' for non-root installations (#21713, jmr in r60774)
745
746    - Fixed a bug that could cause port to hit the open file limit
747      (#22959, jmr in r61770)
748
749    - Fixed an error when installing from source or selfupdating on Tiger with
750      an svn-based ports tree (#20760, jmr in r61302)
751
752    - Fixed an error when selfupdating as root with a prefix that is not owned
753      by root (#21010, jmr in r60798)
754
755    - Stopped uninstall from failing when files in the port image have already
756      been deleted (#22001, jmr in r59318, r59654)
757
758    - Stopped printing command output multiple times on failure (#21084,
759      jmr in r60770)
760
761    - Started showing bug reporting instructions on failure (jmr in r60770)
762
763    - Fixed a bug where 'port dmg' could create too small an image and run out
764      of space (#22404, jmr in r60260)
765
766    - Fixed a bug where reinplace could fail when running port without root
767      privileges (#20896, jmr in r59597)
768
769    - Started setting our own umask since Snow Leopard makes us inherit
770      the user's even when using sudo (#21389, jmr in r59585)
771
772Release 1.8.1 (2009-09-28 by jmr):
773
774    - Installer error messages now display properly even from the Snow Leopard
775      MacPorts dmg. (jmr in r56448)
776
777    - 'fetch.type svn' no longer requires the installation of the subversion
778      port as of Snow Leopard. (toby in r56160; raimue in r56162)
779
780    - Updated manpages and 'port help' output (ryandesign in r56472, r56473,
781      r56474; blb in r56666, r57048, r57131)
782
783    - Fixed syncing using the daily tarball. (#21034, toby in r56889)
784
785    - Fixed 'port load' (#21128, raimue in r57055)
786
787    - Improved error message when an expression on the command line does not
788      match any ports (jmr in r57026)
789
790    - Stopped recording the completion of the install phase in the
791      statefile, which led to errors if the port was uninstalled but the work
792      dir was not cleaned, and the port was then installed again.
793      (jmr/raimue in r57801, 57820)
794
795Release 1.8.0 (2009-08-28 by jmr):
796    - There is now a 'build_arch' variable, available in portfiles and
797      configurable in macports.conf, which sets the CPU architecture that
798      ports should be compiled for (when not building universal). Its default
799      is the same as that of the Apple-supplied /usr/bin/gcc.
800      (#19874, jmr in r53217,r53386,r53420,r53494,r53860,r54236)
801
802    - MacPorts base now works on and has appropriate default settings for
803      Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. (#19874, toby/mww/jkh in r38271,r40060,
804      r40836,r43976,r52397)
805     
806    - MacPorts now requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later. (Panther is not
807      just "unsupported", it really won't work.)
808
809    - The universal_sysroot and universal_target keys have been removed from
810      macports.conf. These settings are now handled automatically.
811      (toby in r52324)
812
813    - Added a 'replaced_by' portfile option. This causes upgrade to deactivate
814      the current port and install the port specified by this option. This
815      also allows ports to be renamed. Upgrade accepts a --no-replace option
816      which disables this behaviour. (#20157, jmr in r54378)
817
818    - The upgrade action now accepts --force and --enforce-variants options.
819      The former causes ports to be rebuilt even if they are not outdated, and
820      the global -f option no longer has this effect (it had too many effects
821      already). The latter causes ports to be rebuilt if the requested
822      variants do not match those installed (even if they are not outdated).
823      (#20156, jmr in r54376)
824
825    - Dependencies can be satisfied by ports that are installed but not
826      available in the ports tree (useful for testing uncommitted ports).
827      (jmr in r52075, r52160)
828
829    - Ports that are installed but not available in the ports tree no longer
830      cause an error when running commands like 'port clean installed'. They
831      are skipped and a warning is printed. (#19253, jmr in r50865)
832
833    - Selfupdate no longer disables readline support unless readline is found
834      in /usr/local, which has historically caused failures.
835      (#19035, jmr in r50868)
836
837    - Uninstalling a port that is not installed now produces an informational
838      message rather than an error. (#18984, jmr in r53709)
839
840    - Added a 'conflicts' portfile option. Conflicting ports will be detected
841      during dependency calculation. (#18794, blb/jmr in r51525)
842
843    - 'port selfupdate' now explicitly states precisely what it does. (#18512)
844
845    - Operating system and architecture information is now shown in debug
846      output. (#18435, raimue in r46669)
847
848    - Fixed a bug that could break some symlinks to man pages. (#18302)
849
850    - Switched to a more efficient algorithm for looking up port information
851      in the index, which makes many operations faster.
852      (#18259, jmr/blb in r47110)
853
854    - MacPorts base now tries to avoid using commands that come from ports, so
855      that a broken port can't break the base code. (#18149)
856
857    - Deleting all the contents of a portfile option no longer unsets the
858      option entirely. (#17865, toby in r44901)
859
860    - Removed the code that upgrades from the old DarwinPorts filesystem
861      layout. Trying to upgrade to 1.8.0+ from a version older than 1.5.0 will
862      produce an error message saying you need to install 1.7.1 first.
863      (#17619, jmr in r53260)
864
865    - port(1) now reports its version as dotted-decimal rather than floating
866      point. (#17420)
867
868    - Dependencies are now always obtained by parsing the Portfile and not
869      from the PortIndex, since the latter can't provide expanded variables
870      like $prefix which may be used in path: depspecs. (#17182)
871
872    - Newline characters in long_description can no longer cause receipt
873      corruption. (#16619, blb in r50663)
874
875    - Now unlocking the filemap when it is not in use. This allows e.g.
876      'port contents' to be run while another port instance is performing
877      installs. Note that running more than one simultaneous port instance
878      that will modify the registry can easily fail, though hopefully
879      without corrupting anything. (#16246, jmr in r51133)
880
881    - Removed some irrelevant debug output that was being printed when a port
882      failed. (#16203, jmr in r53706)
883
884    - Added new depends_fetch and depends_extract options, for dependencies
885      that are needed to fetch or extract the port, respectively.
886      (#15161, jmr in r51780)
887
888    - Packages (including the one for MacPorts base) now correctly indicate
889      that they can only be installed on the root volume.
890      (#14809, jmr in r53250)
891
892    - Using an alternative fetch or extract type now adds appropriate
893      dependencies automatically, e.g. 'use_zip yes' adds a dep on unzip, and
894      'fetch.type svn' adds a dep on subversion. (#13981, jmr in r43782)
895
896    - port(1) should now exit with an appropriate status code when an error is
897      encountered. Use the -p option to continue despite errors.
898      (#13918, jmr in r53704)
899
900    - Proxy information can now be obtained from System Preferences and from
901      macports.conf. The older method using environment variables no longer
902      works out of the box on Leopard due to changes that Apple made to the
903      default /etc/sudoers. (#13158, blb in r47194)
904
905    - Improved handling of malformed variant definitions.
906      (#12596, jmr in r50719, r50721)
907
908    - Cope a little better with missing receipt files. (#19540, jmr in r51138)
909
910    - Fixed a major memory leak in the filemap code.
911      (#12022, pguyot in r51419)
912
913    - Improved the logic for determining whether phases can be skipped. This
914      fixes the specific problems of being unable to build packages of ports
915      that are installed, port not running specific phases (e.g. build)
916      when told to if the port is installed, and inactive dependencies being
917      rebuilt instead of simply activated. (#10881, #16260, jmr in r50490)
918
919    - When archive mode is enabled, ports will no longer be rebuilt if an
920      archive is available. (#10785, jmr in r50416)
921
922    - Activating a port will now first deactivate any other version of the
923      same port that is already active. (#10571, jmr in r53711)
924
925    - Added a 'license' portfile option, which is displayed in 'port info'
926      output. (#7493, jmr in r50801)
927
928    - port lint recognizes new top-level category php (#19329, ryandesign)
929
930    - Do not print header lines when the quiet option -q is set
931      (raimue in r48558)
932
933    - svn.tag is deprecated, use svn.revision instead (raimue in r48222-48223)
934
935    - port -i option has been removed (blb in r48218)
936
937    - ui_warn logs to stderr instead of stdout (raimue in r48217)
938
939    - Remove --pretend option for port selfupdate, use global dry-run option
940      instead (raimue in r48125)
941
942    - port(1) option -y for dry-run (#11892, gwhitney/jmr in r43726)
943
944    - New pseudo-port 'obsolete' to identify ports which are installed but no
945      longer in the PortIndex (raimue in r47253)
946
947    - MacPorts can now perform fetch, extract, patch, configure and build in a
948      user rather than system owned location. By default, this is
949      ~/.macports/opt. This allows MacPorts to do all but the install of the
950      port without root privileges. (gsoc08-privileges)
951
952    - MacPorts can now automatically drop privileges so as to avoid running as
953      root whenever possible. To enable this, pass the desired user to run as
954      to configure with the --with-macports-user option. (gsoc08-privileges)
955
956    - The Portfile format has a number of new boolean attributes to indicate
957      when an action should or should not be run with root privileges:
958      'patch.asroot', 'build.asroot', 'configure.asroot', 'destroot.asroot',
959      and 'install.asroot'. The default for all is "no". If the prefix folder
960      (by default /opt/local) is not writable, MacPorts will attempt to
961      elevate privileges to root for the install phase. (gsoc08-privileges)
962
963    - A "make group" command has been added to the Makefile and a
964      "--with-shared-directory" switch to the configure script. Running "make
965      group" will create a macports group. "--with-shared-directory" will let
966      let the group specified by "--with-install-group" have full read write
967      access to the /opt/local hierarchy. This will allow users who are
968      members of the new macports group to have full write permissions to
969      /opt/local and its subfolders, and hence to install ports which only
970      affect that hierarchy without requiring root privileges.
971      (gsoc08-privileges)
972
973    - A switch called "--with-no-root-privileges" has been added for use by
974      user installing MacPorts for their own use only. An example configure
975      command would be "./configure
976      --prefix=/Users/{your-user-name-here}/.macports/opt
977      --with-no-root-privileges" (gsoc08-privileges)
978
979    - Add several new options to port search, looks in name and description by
980      default (#15434, raimue)
981
982    - Add xpkg package type, xar-based format with XML. (afb)
983
984    - Split portpkg creation out from portsubmit phase. (afb)
985
986    - Make dependencies displayed in port info respect variants
987      specified in variants.conf; collapse port deps to be an alias
988      for port info with appropriate flags. Note this changes output
989      format of port deps somewhat.  (#11891, gwhitney in r44340)
990
991    - Make dependencies in port upgrade respect variants as specified
992      (in order of precedence) on command line, latest installed
993      version, or variants.conf .  (#8221, gwhitney in r44362)
994
995    - Add select action, which integrates *_select tools into port.
996      (#17477, perry)
997
998    - The variants action additionally shows default variants, conflicting
999      variants and variants' dependencies. (#14178, #15628, perry)
1000
1001    - Implicit variants (e.g., darwin) can no longer be explicitly
1002      set/unset. (#12563, perry in r46938, jmr in r53371)
1003
1004Release 1.7.1 (2009-03-28 by raimue):
1005    - Trailing slashes are stripped from the prefix passed to configure, which
1006      prevents incorrect mtree violation warnings. (#13789)
1007
1008    - Fix freshmeat-based livecheck (#18887)
1009
1010    - Fix issue on direct-mode installs where checking for installed ports
1011      wasn't properly looking (it only matched for revision 0 and no
1012      variants) (#17762)
1013
1014    - Add new "use_7z yes" port option to allow distfiles in 7z format
1015      (#18521, ryandesign)
1016
1017    - port lint no longer requires variable master_sites if the port has no
1018      distfiles (#18479, ryandesign)
1019
1020    - Upgrade will no longer accept ports that are not installed (but it still
1021      installs new ports as dependencies if needed). In particular, this means
1022      that "port upgrade all" will no longer proceed to install every
1023      available port. (jmr in r46052)
1024
1025    - Add mkdtemp Tcl command to create temporary directories. (#17181, perry)
1026
1027    - Add 'apple-gcc-4.2' option to configure.compiler (#18426, ryandesign)
1028
1029    - Create ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} in destroot
1030      automatically (r45614, raimue)
1031
1032    - Make the postflight procedure a bit smarter about which login files
1033      to update for bash and tcsh (#17588)
1034
1035    - Add error messages to package installers when the wrong OS package
1036      is being installed (#13141)
1037
1038Release 1.7.0 (2008-12-13 by blb):
1039    - Global variant descriptions using variant_descriptions.conf in the new
1040      resources directory in the ports tree (#14482, raimue)
1041
1042    - Move port resources into the ports tree (#14553, raimue and blb)
1043
1044    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
1045
1046    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
1047
1048    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
1049
1050    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
1051      --nitpick is used (#14799)
1052
1053    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
1054
1055    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
1056
1057    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
1058      phases (#11897)
1059
1060    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
1061      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
1062
1063    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
1064      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
1065      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
1066      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
1067
1068    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
1069      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
1070      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
1071      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
1072      in r38683)
1073
1074    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
1075
1076    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
1077      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
1078      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
1079
1080    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
1081      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
1082      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
1083      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, r37621)
1084
1085    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
1086      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
1087      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
1088      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
1089
1090    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
1091      (#15577, afb in r37501)
1092
1093    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
1094
1095    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
1096      running (raimue)
1097
1098    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
1099      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
1100      jmr in r37217, r37255)
1101
1102    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
1103      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
1104      r37121)
1105
1106    - Stopped 'port -R upgrade' from processing more ports than it should, and
1107      from processing ports multiple times. (#10827, jmr in r37046)
1108
1109    - Don't include build.nice and build.jobs in destroot.cmd (#15295)
1110
1111    - The default universal variant is no longer added when we know it won't
1112      work. (#12170, jmr in r36764)
1113
1114    - During upgrade, if the latest installed version of a port is not active,
1115      the currently active version (if any) is now deactivated before trying
1116      to activate the latest version. (#12013, jmr in r36762)
1117
1118    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is
1119      inactive and there is at least one other version of the same port
1120      installed (#11501, jmr in r36747)
1121
1122    - Duplicate entries can no longer build up in the dependency map (#8763,
1123      jmr in r36745)
1124
1125    - In image mode, dependencies are no longer treated as being satisfied
1126      when the satisfying port is not active (#7361, jmr in r36735)
1127
1128    - Fixed a bug where upgrade could create too many nested subdirectories
1129      in distpath, archive.destpath and unarchive.srcpath (#11971, jmr in
1130      r36679, r36687, r36688)
1131
1132    - Declaring a dependency on a nonexistent port now always causes an error
1133      (#10768, jmr in r36648)
1134
1135    - Explicitly use unsetenv(3) on all environment variables (#13930, #16010,
1136      #16233)
1137
1138    - Make the included tclthread compile on Leopard if configured (#13495)
1139
1140    - Allow distfiles to be disk images with "use_dmg yes" port option (#13509,
1141      ryandesign in r36708)
1142
1143    - ruby.setup now takes a type 'fetch' to just fetch/extract (eridius in r35773)
1144
1145    - Fetch now prefers mirrors with lower ping times (#14891, jmr in r35748,
1146      r35806, r35808)
1147
1148    - Fetching of daily snapshot tarballs of the ports tree as an alternative to rsync
1149      (raimue in r35647, r35648)
1150
1151    - port uninstall now takes --follow-dependents to uninstall all dependents
1152      (#14637, eridius/raimue in r34977, r35042, r36160)
1153
1154    - New fetch.type git (#14232, eridius in r34875)
1155
1156    - fixed "port mdmg" getting block size wrong for the disk image (#13968, afb in r34844)
1157
1158    - always set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, to avoid bugs with older glibtool (afb in r34541)
1159
1160    - port lint now checks all dependencies so that the ports actually exist (#14380)
1161
1162    - added target_state to avoid the need for privileges for lint/livecheck (#13458)
1163
1164    - Overhauled output for port info/deps/dependents/search (raimue in
1165      r34354, r34371, r34391, r34395, r34402, r34420)
1166
1167    - Revert the default +universal MDT/SDK to 10.4/10.4u on Tiger and 10.5/10.5 on Leopard
1168
1169    - port lint shouldn't require variable master_sites for fetch.type != standard (#14377)
1170
1171    - Add "tcldoc" documentation comments and "tcldox" Doxyfile for doxygen (#12048)
1172
1173    - Add --pretend and --nosync flags to selfupdate (raimue in r33938, r33939,
1174      r33940, r33941)
1175
1176    - Work around autoconf X11 detection bugs on darwin (afb in r33717)
1177
1178    - Fix bugs with X11 lib detection on Leopard (#14089, afb in r33716)
1179
1180    - Add configure.{optflags,m32,m64,march,mtune} (afb in r33503, r33599)
1181
1182    - Add applications_dir and frameworks_dir configuration (r33499, r33722)
1183
1184    - Remove some hardcoded paths (such as /usr/X11R6, /usr/bin/install) (afb in r33501, r33619, r33620)
1185
1186    - Add configure.{universal_target,universal_sysroot,universal_archs} (afb in r33478).
1187
1188    - Change default +universal platform back to: 10.4/10.4u.sdk/i386 ppc (r33087, r33107).
1189
1190    - Add `port platform` info action that outputs current platform (#12302, afb in r32724).
1191
1192    - Enable 64 bit environment, ppc64 x86_64, for all +universal builds (mww in r32194).
1193
1194    - Add 'merge' function for merging multiple (single arch) destroots into one (universal)
1195      destroot (mww in r31954).
1196
1197    - If checksum is mismatched, and in verbose mode, present a corrected pre-fabricated checksum statement
1198      to make it easy to update a port (jberry in r32441).
1199
1200    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_prefix"" runtime error on Panther
1201      (eridius in r32525).
1202
1203    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_channels"" runtime error on Panther
1204      (eridius in r32514).
1205
1206    - "port lint" now recognizes non-canonical modelines (afb in r32480).
1207
1208    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
1209
1210    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
1211      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_version (jmpp in r32353).
1212
1213    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents
1214      (jmpp in r32336).
1215
1216    - Fixed a Panther build failure due to missing sqlite headers (jmpp in r32212).
1217
1218    - Fixed a build failure by passing the base/src/cregistry/cregistry.a archive through ranlib (jmpp in r32105).
1219
1220
1221Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
1222
1223    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
1224      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
1225      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
1226      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
1227
1228    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
1229      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
1230
1231    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
1232
1233    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
1234      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
1235
1236    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
1237      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
1238      (#10651, jberry in r31139, r31140).
1239
1240    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
1241      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
1242      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
1243      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).
1244
1245    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
1246
1247    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
1248      multiple files (mww in r31028)
1249
1250    - add optional configure.pipe output (afb in r29604 & r30824)
1251
1252    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)
1253
1254    - add configure.[awk|bison|pkg_config|pkg_config_path] (r30761)
1255
1256    - Auto-mode for number of parallel build threads (if number of jobs is set to "0") (r30739)
1257
1258    - Add option use_parallel_build [yes|no] to declare if a port can be built in parallel (r30714).
1259
1260    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).
1261
1262    - Display warnings when using old versions of Mac OS X and Xcode Tools
1263      (#12794, afb in r30338 & r30477)
1264
1265    - Remove configure.macosx_deployment_target, add global macosx_deployment_target
1266      (eridius in r30396).
1267
1268    - add support for LZMA compression, for making .tlz archives (afb in r30307)
1269
1270    - add configure.[perl|python|ruby] for interpreters, .install for avoiding breakage
1271      due to coreutils, .libs
1272
1273    - added startupitem.netchange boolean flag (#12931, N_Ox in r30086).
1274
1275    - added generic GNU livecheck (N_Ox in r29812).
1276
1277    - fixed bug where all .mpkg packages were missing their welcome page (afb in r29517)
1278
1279    - better defaults for implicit ui_channels behaviour (eridius in r29498).
1280
1281    - prevent creating PKG packages with /etc or /var or /tmp (#2102, afb in r29445)
1282
1283    - add optional configure.ccache and configure.distcc filters (#5390, afb in r29438)
1284
1285    - Explicitly sort fs-traverse so it behaves predictably on Linux systems
1286      (#12622, eridius in r29412).
1287
1288    - add configure.objc/objcflags for Objective-C
1289
1290    - add optional build.nice (0) and build.jobs (1) modifiers (afb in r28634 & r28673)
1291
1292    - make tclobjc1.0 compile with GNUstep and NXConstantString class (afb in r28668)
1293
1294    - fix bsdmake/gnumake defaults for FreeBSD and Linux platforms (afb in r28660)
1295
1296    - port lint command, for Portfile verification (#463, afb in r28170)
1297
1298    - add configure.macosx_deployment_target for configure flags
1299
1300    - add configure.javac/classpath for Java
1301
1302    - add configure.fflags/fcflags/f90flags for Fortran flags
1303
1304    - Mark "python" group code as deprecated
1305
1306    - Add group code for Python 3.0
1307
1308    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
1309
1310    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
1311      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
1312
1313    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
1314
1315    - Chris Pickel's GSoC2007 work: registry2.0 & cregistry (mainly r27518 & r27520)
1316
1317    - Eugene Pimenov's GSoC2007 work: Trace lib on unix sockets (r26682).
1318
1319    - Elias Pipping's GSoC2007 work: merge.rb on his personal /users/pipping svn dir.
1320
1321
1322Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
1323
1324    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
1325      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
1326      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
1327
1328
1329Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
1330
1331    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
1332      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
1333
1334    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
1335      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
1336
1337    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
1338
1339    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
1340      (mww in r27199).
1341
1342    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
1343
1344    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
1345
1346    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
1347
1348    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
1349      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
1350
1351    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
1352
1353    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
1354
1355    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
1356
1357
1358Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
1359
1360    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
1361      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
1362      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
1363      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
1364      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
1365
1366    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
1367
1368    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
1369
1370    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
1371      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
1372      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
1373      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
1374      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
1375
1376    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
1377
1378    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
1379      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
1380
1381    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
1382
1383    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
1384      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
1385
1386    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
1387      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
1388      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
1389      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
1390      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
1391      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
1392
1393    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
1394
1395    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
1396
1397    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
1398
1399    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
1400      to detect problems between required and negated variants
1401      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
1402
1403    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
1404      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
1405      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
1406      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
1407
1408    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
1409      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
1410
1411    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
1412      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
1413      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
1414
1415    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
1416      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
1417         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
1418         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
1419      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
1420      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
1421      (jberry r25795).
1422
1423    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
1424
1425    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
1426      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
1427      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
1428
1429    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
1430      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
1431
1432    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
1433      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
1434
1435    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
1436      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
1437      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
1438      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
1439      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
1440      (boeyms in r25310)
1441
1442Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
1443
1444    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
1445
1446Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
1447
1448    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
1449
1450    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
1451      This allows information about variants to be displayed (e.g. dependencies).
1452      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
1453      (eridius r25255).
1454
1455    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
1456
1457    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
1458      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
1459      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
1460
1461    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
1462      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
1463
1464    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
1465      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
1466      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
1467      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
1468      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
1469      (boeyms r25110)
1470
1471    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
1472      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
1473      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
1474      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
1475
1476    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
1477
1478    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
1479      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
1480
1481    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
1482      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
1483
1484    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
1485
1486    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
1487      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
1488
1489    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
1490      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
1491      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
1492      (jberry r25146)
1493
1494    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
1495         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
1496         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
1497         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
1498           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
1499           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
1500
1501        Example:
1502
1503            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
1504                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
1505            }
1506
1507        (jberry r25147)
1508
1509    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
1510      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
1511
1512
1513Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
1514
1515    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
1516      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
1517      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
1518      it differently.
1519
1520    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
1521      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
1522      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
1523      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
1524      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
1525
1526    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
1527      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
1528      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
1529
1530    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
1531
1532    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
1533
1534    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
1535      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
1536
1537    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
1538
1539    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
1540
1541    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
1542      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
1543      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
1544
1545    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
1546      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
1547
1548    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
1549      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
1550
1551    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
1552      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
1553
1554    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
1555
1556    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
1557      (pguyot r24273).
1558
1559    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
1560      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
1561      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
1562
1563    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
1564      This work is in progress. (jberry)
1565       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
1566       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
1567         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
1568
1569    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
1570      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
1571
1572    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
1573      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
1574
1575    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
1576      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
1577
1578    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
1579
1580    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
1581
1582Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
1583
1584    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
1585      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
1586      (jberry r24151).
1587
1588    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
1589      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
1590      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
1591      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
1592      (pipping r24148).
1593
1594Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
1595
1596    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
1597      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
1598
1599    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
1600      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
1601
1602    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
1603      for submitter information.
1604      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
1605        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
1606        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
1607            - PORTSRC
1608            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
1609            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
1610          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
1611       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
1612
1613    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
1614      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
1615
1616    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
1617      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
1618      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
1619      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1620
1621    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1622
1623    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
1624      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
1625
1626Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
1627
1628    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
1629      (pipping in r23343).
1630
1631    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
1632      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
1633
1634    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
1635      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
1636      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
1637
1638    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
1639      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
1640
1641    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
1642      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
1643      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
1644
1645    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
1646
1647    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
1648      r22313).
1649
1650    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
1651      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
1652      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
1653      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
1654
1655    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
1656      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
1657
1658    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
1659      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
1660
1661    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
1662      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
1663
1664    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
1665      r23967)
1666
1667
1668Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
1669
1670    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
1671      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
1672
1673    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
1674
1675    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
1676      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
1677
1678    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
1679
1680    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
1681
1682    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
1683      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
1684
1685    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
1686
1687    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
1688
1689    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
1690      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
1691
1692    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
1693      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
1694
1695    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
1696      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
1697      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
1698
1699    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
1700
1701    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
1702      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
1703
1704    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
1705      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
1706
1707    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
1708      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
1709
1710    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
1711
1712    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
1713
1714    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
1715      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
1716
1717    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
1718
1719    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
1720
1721    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
1722
1723    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
1724      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
1725
1726    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
1727      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
1728
1729    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
1730
1731    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
1732
1733
1734Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
1735
1736    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
1737      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
1738
1739    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
1740
1741    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
1742      code. (pguyot)
1743
1744    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
1745      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
1746
1747    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
1748      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
1749
1750    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
1751      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
1752      /usr/local. (pguyot)
1753
1754    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
1755
1756    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
1757      (josh_root, blb)
1758
1759    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
1760      are modified. (pguyot)
1761
1762    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
1763      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1764
1765    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
1766      variable. (pguyot)
1767
1768    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
1769      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
1770      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
1771
1772Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
1773
1774    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
1775
1776    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
1777      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
1778
1779    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
1780      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
1781      SVN. (pguyot)
1782
1783    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
1784      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
1785
1786    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
1787      (jberry)
1788
1789    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
1790      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
1791
1792    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
1793
1794    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
1795
1796    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1797
1798    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
1799       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
1800       * mention interactive and batch modes
1801       * document extensions to info command.
1802
1803    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
1804
1805    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
1806      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
1807      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
1808
1809Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
1810
1811    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
1812      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
1813      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
1814
1815    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
1816      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
1817
1818    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
1819      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
1820
1821    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
1822
1823    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
1824
1825    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
1826      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
1827
1828    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
1829      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
1830
1831    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
1832
1833    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
1834      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
1835
1836    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
1837
1838    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
1839      (jberry)
1840
1841    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
1842      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
1843      (landonf)
1844
1845    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
1846      installed. (jmpp)
1847
1848    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
1849      project path. (pguyot)
1850
1851    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
1852      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
1853
1854    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
1855      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
1856
1857    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
1858      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
1859
1860    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
1861      (olegb)
1862
1863    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
1864      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
1865
1866    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
1867      iterating). (jberry)
1868
1869    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
1870      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
1871      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
1872
1873    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
1874
1875    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
1876      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
1877      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
1878      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
1879      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
1880      shoot yourself. (jberry)
1881
1882    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
1883      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
1884
1885    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
1886      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
1887
1888    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
1889
1890    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
1891      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
1892        several bug fixes.
1893      * cleaned up the code.
1894      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
1895        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
1896        reported creations).
1897      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
1898        overwritten.
1899
1900    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
1901
1902    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
1903      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
1904      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
1905
1906        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
1907          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
1908          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
1909
1910        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
1911          input following any commands given as arguments.
1912
1913        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
1914          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
1915          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
1916            #!/usr/bin/env portf
1917
1918        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
1919
1920        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
1921
1922        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
1923          interactive/batch mode.
1924
1925        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
1926
1927        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
1928          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
1929          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
1930
1931    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
1932      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
1933      (jberry).
1934
1935    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
1936      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
1937
1938    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
1939      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
1940      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
1941
1942    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
1943      (pguyot)
1944
1945    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
1946
1947    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
1948      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
1949      (jberry)
1950
1951    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
1952      MacOS X. (mww)
1953
1954    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
1955      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
1956      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
1957      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
1958      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
1959      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
1960      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
1961      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
1962      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
1963      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
1964      (jberry) 2006-02-16
1965
1966Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
1967
1968    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
1969      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
1970      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
1971      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
1972      fat, configure as follows:
1973        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
1974                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
1975
1976    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
1977      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
1978      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
1979
1980Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
1981
1982    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
1983      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
1984      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
1985        port uninstall vim @1.0
1986      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
1987      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
1988
1989    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
1990      destroot, too. (mww)
1991
1992    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
1993      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
1994
1995    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
1996      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
1997      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
1998
1999    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
2000      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
2001      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
2002
2003    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
2004      groups of ports.
2005      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
2006      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
2007
2008      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
2009        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
2010
2011      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
2012      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
2013      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
2014      The selectors are:
2015      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
2016      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
2017      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
2018
2019    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
2020      ports or groups of ports.
2021      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
2022
2023    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
2024      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
2025      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
2026      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
2027
2028    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
2029      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
2030
2031    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
2032      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
2033      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
2034
2035    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
2036      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
2037      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
2038      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
2039      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
2040      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
2041
2042    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
2043      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
2044      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
2045
2046    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
2047      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
2048
2049    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
2050      ones considered harmful (blb)
2051
2052    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
2053      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
2054
2055    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
2056      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
2057
2058    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
2059        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
2060          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
2061        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
2062          reports (pguyot)
2063        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
2064
2065    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
2066      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
2067
2068    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
2069
2070    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
2071      echo (the expanded arguments),
2072      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
2073      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
2074      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
2075      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
2076      (jberry)
2077
2078    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
2079      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
2080      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
2081      in a similar fashion (jberry)
