113      there's software that does it) (#45318, cal in r126475)
114
115    - Tune down the noise while using trace mode; in the default verbosity

117      (cal in r124150, r124216)
118
119    - Fix bugs in trace mode that caused it to (1) not ignore /usr/local as

205    - Fixed a problem where dependency calculation could sometimes fail for
206      ports that only support 32-bit architectures when the configured

222Release 2.2.0 (2013-07-23 by jmr)
223    - Fixed ports sometimes being incorrectly cleaned after the unarchive
224      target is run with newer archives. (jmr in r106717)
225
226    - When rebuilding an installed port, fixed the old copy being removed
227      before the new copy has been built. (jmr in r106668)
228
229    - Support deleting selected files and directories before creating a pkg.
230      (blair in r105575)

239      login shell. (#34221, jeremyhu in r104118)
240
241    - TMPDIR is now set to ${workpath}/.tmp while building ports, to avoid
242      problems with using /tmp. (#37834, ryandesign in r103518)
243
244    - Remove unimplemented 'port submit', remove XAR source packages.
245      (cal in r103400)

250
251    - Setting configure.compiler will now automatically add a dependency if
252      the chosen compiler is provided by a port. (#32542, cal in r102932)
253
254    - Add 'port space --total' which displays the grand total only.
255      (raimue in r102248)
256
257    - Added 'subport:' pseudo-portname that expands to ports that provide
258      a matching subport; added 'subportof:' pseudo-portname that expands to
259      the list of subports of the given port name
260      (raimue in r100059)
261
262    - Fixes bringing trace mode back to a working state. Improvements to reduce
263      the number of builds trace mode breaks.
264      (cal in r100071-100073, r100077, r100126, r100221, r106710)
265
266    - Began using sandbox-exec(1) on 10.5+ to prevent commands executed using
267      the 'system' procedure from writing files outside of the build directory
268      and selected other locations like /tmp. (jmr in r98156, r98193, etc.)
269
270    - Added ability to sync ports tree with git (jeremyhu in r92410)
271
272Release 2.1.3 (2013-01-31 by jmr)

277
278    - Fix permission problem in the creation of the ccache directory with
279      ccache >= 3.1.7 by running the initialization step as the macportsuser.
280      (raimue in r97868)
281
282    - Fix an endless loop that could be triggered in rev-upgrade when a broken
283      port is not in the index, e.g. when it has been deleted from the tree,
284      or it was installed directly from a Portfile not in the tree.
285      (cal in r100129, jmr in r101313)
286
287    - Set a busy timeout on SQLite connections to prevent MacPorts from
288      uselessly burning CPU cycles when waiting for a database lock.

290
291    - Switch from exclusive locking to immediate locking in the registry
292      database to avoid locking reads where not needed.
293      (cal in r100218)
294
295    - Fix a problem where interrupting the uninstallation process could leave
296      the registry database in a corrupted state.
297      (#34482, cal in r100219)
298

328      continue (jmr in r95382)
329
330    - Added a log message when everything to be installed has an unsatisfied
331      dependency, such as in the case of circular dependencies (jmr in r93962)

333    - Fixed incorrect error message when installing a port that has a
334      dependency that is not in the index (#31130, jmr in r93511)
335
336Release 2.1.1 (2012-05-19 by jmr):

341      not a terminal (#34480, cal in r93221,r93222)
342
343    - Made rev-upgrade avoid trying to upgrade ports that are not in the index
344      (jmr in r93197)
345
346    - Fixed rev-upgrade disabling source-only mode in its first upgrade pass
347      (jmr in r93153)

359      macports-clang-3.1, macports-gcc-4.7, macports-gcc-4.8
360      (jeremyhu in r86719, ryandesign in r91521)
361
362    - Avoid using pkg-config to find sqlite3 in our configure script unless it
363      can't be found by other means, because some third-party packages
364      incorrectly install a /usr/bin/pkg-config that points to an incompatible
365      copy of sqlite3. (#30932, dluke/jmr in r91512)
366
367    - 'port pkg' and 'port mpkg' will now create flat packages (i.e. a xar
368      archive rather than a directory) on 10.6+.
369      (jmr in r91317, r91329, r91331, r91437)
370

375      archive is available for download (and port is configured to use it).
376      (jmr in r91196, r91217)
377
378    - Added new config file archive_sites.conf, which can be used to configure
379      additional archive download sources. Each source has an associated
380      archive type; portarchivetype is now only used when creating archives
381      locally. Sources also have an associated prefix, applications_dir and
382      frameworks_dir, and if any of these do not match the current values, the
383      source is not used. (jmr in r91009)
384
385    - Xcode 4.3 support: Search harder for developer directory; advise user to
386      run xcode-select when necessary, searching for Xcode and suggesting
387      xcode-select commands.
388      (jberry, jmr in r89970,r89971,r89972,r89996,r89999,r90003,r90005-r90009,
389      r90018-r90019,r90024,r90031)
390
391    - warn about non-existing developer_dir when it's set in macports.conf
392      (cal in 90802)
393
394    - port automatically installs bsdmake when there's no bsdmake in $PATH and a
395      port sets build.type bsd (#33355, cal in r90650)
396
397    - Added -W option for reinplace that sets a base directory that all file
398      arguments are interpreted as being relative to. (raimue in r90610)
399
400    - Added macports.conf options 'host_blacklist' and 'preferred_hosts', used
401      for indicating lists of download hosts that should not be used or should
402      be used preferentially, respectively. These override the usual ping time
403      check. Ping times are also now cached for 24 hours. (jmr in r89459)
404
405    - Added 'rev-upgrade' action checking for broken linkage and rebuilding
406      ports containing broken files. Made rev-upgrade run automatically after
407      each upgrade or install.
408      (cal in branch gsoc11-rev-upgrade, merge in r88376, also cal, raimue, jmr
409      in r88377,r88411,r88441,r88511,r88666,r88732,r89180,r89659,r89661,r90102,
410      r90381)
411
412    - Added options controlling rev-upgrade behavior to macports.conf
413      (jmr, cal in r88725,r88794,r89189)
414
415    - port livecheck regex finds multiple matches on the same line
416      (raimue in r88031)
417
418    - Several improvements to port lint:
419      licenses, subversion properties, maintainer addresses
420      (#30194, snc, raimue in r85929, r86016, r89428, r89610)
421
422    - Added license_noconflict option to specify dependencies for which the
423      maintainer has manually checked license compatibility and wishes to
424      overrule the conservative automated checks. (jmr in r89004)
425
426    - Xcode 4.3 support: Use xcrun -find to find xcode compiler if it's not
427      found in /usr/bin.
428      (jberry, jmr in r88540,r88541,r88546,r88777,r88779,r88787,r89359,r89984,r90028)
429
430    - Added options compiler.blacklist, compiler.whitelist, and
431      compiler.fallback; to allow blacklisting, whitelisting, and setting the
432      fallback order for configure.compiler values, respectively.
433      (#30041, jmr in r88676)
434
435    - Fix sync with subdirectory of Subversion 1.7-format working copy
436      (#33573, jmr in 86872)
437
438    - Fixed conflicts not being checked for when installing ports that have no
439      dependencies. (#31571, dports in r85382)
440
441    - dmg postflight: quote all paths to handle the increasingly frequent
442      occurrence that $HOME contains spaces (#33583, ryandesign in r84345)
443
444    - dmg postflight: adjust wording of some messages (ryandesign in r84344)
445
446    - The deprecated Portfile options svn.tag, distcheck.check and
447      livecheck.check have been removed. (raimue in r82763)
448
449    - Implement new option-replace using lsearch/lreplace. The old behavior is
450      deprecated for option-replace with only one argument, but can still be
451      found in option-strsed.
452      (raimue in r82760, r82761)
453
454    - Added 'buildfromsource' macports.conf setting, which allows permanently
455      selecting the behaviour of the -s or -b option. (jmr in r81540)
456
457Release 2.0.4 (2012-02-25 by jmr)
458    - Added -locale option for reinplace (jeremyhu in r89839)
459
460    - Xcode 4.3 support: Change home directory for MacPorts user to
461      ${prefix}/var/macports/home.
462      (jberry, jmr in r89988, r89993, r90002, r90010, r90011)
463
464    - set env(HOME) to ${workpath}/.home when building ports
465      (#31827, jmr in r89994, r90004)
466
467    - Fix use_xmkmf to honor xmkmf.env for its make Makefiles phase
468      (#31504, jeremyhu in r89537, r89538, r89539)
469
470    - Added configure.cxx setting when configure.compiler is apple-gcc-4.2
471      (jeremyhu in r80248)
472
473    - Xcode 4.3 support: added packagemaker_path macports.conf setting
474      (jmr in r90058)
475
476    - Resolve ambiguity in selection in portlists
477      (jberry in r88179, r88185)
478
479    - Xcode 4.3 support: updated default developer_dir location for 4.3
480      (jmr in r90016)
481
482    - Xcode 4.3 support: use compilers in /usr/bin instead of developer_dir
483      when possible, as the latter has proven to be volatile.
484      (jmr in r90015)
485
486    - Xcode 4.3 support: updated SDK paths for 4.3 (jmr in r90000)
487
488    - Work around broken FTP proxy support in some versions of libcurl
489      (jmr in r84351, r88045)
490
491Release 2.0.3 (2011-09-05 by raimue)
492    - Fix a regression introduced in 2.0.2 when fetching with a VCS
493      (#31073, jmr in r83471)
494
495Release 2.0.2 (2011-09-01 by jmr):
496    - Messages recommending running selfupdate will no longer be printed when
497      selfupdate is being run. (#23094, jmr in r83270, r83391)
498
499    - The PortIndex will not be regenerated during selfupdate when base is
500      outdated. This avoids failure to index ports that use features only
501      available in the current version. (#30739, jmr in r83271)
502
503    - Fixed build failures when the TMPDIR environment variable is set to a
504      directory that is not writable by the macports user.
505      (#30749, jmr in r83267)
506
507    - Fixed error when checksumming distfiles with names containing spaces.
508      (#28568, jmr in r83149)
509
510    - The uninstall and deactivate actions now sort the port list so that
511      dependents are processed before the ports they depend on.
512      (#8431, jmr in r82947)
513
514    - Fixed an issue where a non-universal version of a port could be
515      installed as a dependency as well as the universal version, with
516      unpredictable results, when some ports in the dependency graph needed
517      the universal version but others didn't. (jmr in r82924)
518
519    - Now using a temp dir inside ${prefix} when activating, as /tmp or
520      /var/folders may be on a different volume. (jmr in r82767)
521
522    - Fixed extracting portfile-only archives. (#31033, jmr in r81830)
523
524    - Fixed adduser and addgroup procedures not re-dropping privileges when
525      done. (jmr in r81630)
526
527    - Fixed error activating ports with names containing the string "cpio".
528      (#30532, jmr in r81577)
529
530Release 2.0.1 (2011-08-02 by jmr):
531    - Fixed errors when installing some archives built on a case-sensitive
532      filesystem onto a case-insensitive one. (#30373, jmr in r81562)
533
534    - Fixed users created by MacPorts showing up in the GUI in some places on
535      Lion. (#30168, jeremyhu in r81558)
536
537    - Added replaced_by pseudo-portname selector. (afb in r81475)
538
539    - Added progress output to port image conversion script.
540      (#30347, jmr in r81464)
541
542    - Now doing a better job of avoiding UID conflicts with non-local users
543      when creating the 'macports' user. (#30464, jmr in r81414, r81415) Also
544      improved Tiger compatibility in this area. (jmr in r81454, r81467)
545
546    - Fixed 'port selfupdate' exiting with non-zero status after installing a
547      new version of base. (jmr in r81371)
548
549    - Added --subports to options accepted by 'port info'. (jmr in r81234)
550
551    - Fixed incorrect info sometimes being added to PortIndex entries when
552      using subports. (#30463, jmr in r81361)
553
554    - Fixed descriptions not being shown for default variants. (jmr in r80971)
555
556    - Fixed 'port variants --index'. (jmr in r80969)
557
558Release 2.0.0 (2011-07-22 by jmr):
559
560    - Multiple ports can now be defined in one Portfile using the 'subport'
561      procedure. This reduces code duplication when several ports use very
562      similar code. (jmr in r78062)
563
564    - Privilege dropping is now on by default. The runtime user can be changed
565      when building from source but defaults to 'macports'; this user is
566      created at install time. (jmr in r79025)
567
568    - Fetching from some extremely slow or partially unresponsive servers
569      should now time out as expected. (raimue in r71038)
570
571    - The registry is now "vacuumed" (compacted/defragmented) after
572      uninstalling ports. (jmr in r70608)
573
574    - Downloaded archives are now checked for integrity using digital
575      signatures. Sync and selfupdate can also use a signed tarball. New
576      pubkeys.conf file allows configuring keys to trust.
577      (jmr in r68996, r79093)
578
579    - Added 'actinact' pseudo-portname that expands to installed ports with an
580      active version and at least one inactive version.
581      (#27666, jmr in r79421, based on patch from gmail.com:ww.galen)
582
583    - Added --size option for 'contents' action that makes it print the size
584      of each file. (#27245, jmr in r79365, based on patch from
585      gmail.com:ww.galen)
586
587    - Added 'space' action to show the disk space used by ports' active files.
588      (#27244, jmr in r79349, based on patch from gmail.com:ww.galen)
589
590    - Actions can be abbreviated to an unambiguous prefix of the full name.
591      (#27242, patch from gmail.com:ww.galen committed in r79259)
592
593    - Fixed error when activating ports whose version contains an underscore
594      followed by an integer and a dash. (#28084, jmr in r79167)
595
596    - Deactivating a port that has dependents no longer needs to be forced
597      when the dependents are all inactive. (#29505, jmr in r78086)
598
599    - New option 'add_users' has been added. Setting it will ensure that the
600      listed users are created before all operations that may require them to
601      exist. (#11563, jmr in r78660)
602
603    - 'port info --index' should be much faster and will work with the
604      'current' pseudo-port provided the port has been indexed.
605      (#13673, jmr in r78621)
606
607    - Relocation is explicitly disabled when building pkgs on 10.6, so Apple's
608      Installer won't attempt to overwrite other copies of the same software
609      not installed by MacPorts. (#25174, jmr in r78178)
610
611    - Non-Darwin platforms can once again build base against OpenSSL for
612      checksum support. (#26813, afb in r77865)
613
614    - It is now safe to set svn.post_args, rather than that option being
615      reserved for svn.url. (#27454, jmr in r73825)
616
617    - Variants specified when running 'port mpkg' are now set in the
618      dependencies as well. (#27231, jmr in r73303)
619
620    - Fixed various issues with privilege dropping.
621      (#26899, jmr in r69453 etc.)
622
623    - Trace mode no longer fails on 10.6. (#21582, jmr in r74318, r74369)
624
625    - Ports that create StartupItems (aka launchd plists) should now be
626      installable by unprivileged users. (#10879, jmr in r66700, r75143)
627
628    - Fixed incorrect output from 'port dependents' when using newer SQLite
629      versions. (#27506, patch from gmail.com:mmpestorich committed in r76827)
630
631    - The flat registry format is no longer available. Setting portdbformat to
632      'flat' in macports.conf will result in the sqlite registry being used.
633      (jmr in r77681)
634
635    - Port images are now stored as archives. Archive mode is now effectively
636      always on. Among other benefits, this fixes some bugs with the handling
637      of hard links installed by ports (e.g. #13601).
638
639      Direct mode is no longer available. Existing port image directories, and
640      installed files for direct mode, will be converted to archives when
641      upgrading.
642
643      (#19458, branch by blb, merged by jmr in r77511)
644
645    - master_site_local, patch_site_local, and archive_site_local can be set
646      in macports.conf, with the same effects as the corresponding environment
647      variables. (jmr in r74924)
648
649    - Added 'logfile' action that prints the path to a port's log file.
650      (jmr in r74655)
651
652    - Computing large dependency trees that contain the same port(s) multiple
653      times should be considerably faster. (jmr in r73133)
654
655    - New configure.compiler options: macports-gcc-4.6, macports-llvm-gcc-4.2,
656      macports-clang (jmr in r71487; mfeiri in r72936, r72937)
657
658    - Add '-n' option to reinplace (#26406, ryandesign in r73227)
659
660    - Add new ccache_dir and ccache_size options, default path is
661      ${portdbpath}/build/.ccache and a size of 2 GB.
662      (raimue in r71604, r71606)
663
664    - Add 'system -W path' which changes to the given directory before
665      executing the command.
666      (raimue in r71380, r71389)
667
668    - Add -w to build.cmd and destroot.cmd if using gnumake
669      (raimue in r71370)
670
671    - Add livecheck.ignore_sslcert; setting fetch.ignore_sslcert does no
672      longer apply to livecheck. distcheck now respects fetch.ignore_sslcert.
673      (#17063, raimue in r70975, r70979, r70982)
674
675    - Add SHA256 checksums in addition to MD5, SHA1 and RIPEMD160.
676      (afb in r57888, r57913; snc in r68955)
677
678    - Add @pkgdep lines to archives, with build-time dependencies.
679      (afb in r76919)
680
681Release 1.9.2 (2010-11-07 by jmr):
682
683    - Added more locking to avoid TOCTOU errors when running multiple port(1)
684      instances (#19935, jmr in r70174)
685
686    - Fixed -q not suppressing output from 'port lint' (#25880, jmr in r70163)
687
688    - Added a helpful message when there is a checksum mismatch and the
689      distfile appears to incorrectly be a HTML document (#25128,
690      ryandesign/jmr in r70143)
691
692    - Now checking early on if there are sufficient privileges to install,
693      and failing before building anything if not (#25671, jmr in r70135)
694
695    - Avoided possible failure when the -u option is used when upgrading a
696      port that is marked as being replaced by another (jmr in r69022)
697
698    - Using the platform-specific PortIndex when syncing using a daily tarball
699      (jmr in r68786)
700
701    - Fixed failures when fetch target is run without root privileges and the
702      port is then installed with them (#25418, #25937; jmr in r69334, r70271)
703
704    - Fixed upgrading ports where the new version differs from the old version
705      only in epoch (jmr in r69436)
706
707    - Fixed [un]setrequested when using the flat registry format
708      (#26352, jmr in r69387)
709
710    - Fixed checking for conflicting ports before installation
711      (#25386, jmr in r69105)
712
713    - Now gracefully handling distfiles that use a tag that is not
714      associated with any sites (#25332, jmr in r68965)
715
716    - Fixed running 'port deps' on multiple ports, and changed its output
717      format back to how it was in 1.8 (#25324, jmr in r68950)
718
719    - Fixed premature privilege dropping (#25331, jmr in r68952)
720
721Release 1.9.1 (2010-06-18 by jmr):
722    - Fixed a couple of problems with new 1.9 features when using the flat
723      registry format (jmr in r68910, r68913)
724
725    - Ports using the replaced_by option will once again be deactivated when
726      an upgrade is performed on them (#25270, jmr in r68872)
727
728    - Fixed the possibility of some empty directories being left behind when
729      a port is deactivated (#25268, jmr in r68864)
730
731    - Fixed failure to detect conflicts with files that are not provided by
732      a port before activation starts (#25255, jmr in r68849)
733
734    - Fixed problems with distfile names containing spaces (#25245, #25246;
735      jmr in r68816, r68817)
736
737    - Fixed a problem with uninstall when using direct mode, and started
738      running pre/post activate and deactivate procedures when installing and
739      uninstalling in direct mode, respectively (#11562, jmr in r68697)
740
741    - fixed a crasher that affected Tiger (#25194, jmr in r68675, r68680,
742      r68691)
743
744Release 1.9.0 (2010-06-08 by jmr):
745
746    - It is no longer possible to use include statements in Portfiles
747      (raimue in r68206)
748
749    - Command line options can be abbreviated if unambiguous
750      (raimue in r66837)
751
752    - Added a new variable 'os.subplatform'. When os.platform is darwin, the
753      subplatform is either 'macosx' or 'puredarwin'.
754
755    - 'platform' no longer creates a variant, instead it executes the code in
756      the body immediately if the current platform matches the one specified.
757
758    - Using a Portfile with a modification date in the future now causes an
759      informative error early on, instead of just discarding the workdir at
760      the start of every phase. (#24717, raimue in r65246)
761
762    - Fetching from servers that require a cookie to be set now works.
763      (#24584, raimue in r66785)
764
765    - Fixed an error when everything is deleted from the patchfiles list.
766      (#24178, raimue in r65243)
767
768    - Added 'license:' pseudo-port selector. (#24123, perry in r65033)
769
770    - Added new fetch.type 'bzr'. (#23436, perry in r65096)
771
772    - Added 'rdeps' and 'rdependents' actions, recursive versions of 'deps'
773      and 'dependents' respectively. Also added 'depof:', 'rdepof:',
774      'dependentof:' and 'rdependentof:' pseudo-port selectors, for specifying
775      the ports that are dependencies or dependents of the given port.
776      (#22346, jmr in r65858/r66198)
777
778    - Updated the description of the search action in the port(1) man page.
779      (#23749, jmr in r66670)
780
781    - Dry-run now uses /dev/null as the statefile, which prevents a couple of
782      problems involving locking and variant checks.
783      (#21794, #21962; jmr in r66921)
784
785    - The list of dependencies to be installed is now displayed immediately
786      after computing them. (#21540, jmr in r66321)
787
788    - The quick index is now reloaded after syncing in interactive mode, which
789      prevents errors due to it not matching the updated PortIndex.
790      (#20874, jmr in r66319, refinement of patch from carrel.org:edward)
791
792    - The architectures of dependencies are checked when installing a port. If
793      a dependency does not provide the required arch(s), it is rebuilt with
794      +universal if that is possible and will help, otherwise the install fails
795      and an error message explains why. (#20728, jmr in r65087)
796
797    - New supported_archs option allows ports to indicate which architectures
798      they can be built for. The default values of configure.build_arch and
799      configure.universal_archs change based on this list. Set this to
800      'noarch' if a port installs only architecture-independent files.
801      (#20739, jmr in r64372/r64945)
802
803    - Declaring a variant that requires one or more other variants will now
804      correctly set the required variants, so they can be checked with
805      variant_isset. (#19224, jmr in r66642)
806
807    - 'port outdated' now indicates the reason why a port that appears to have
808      the same version as that in the tree is considered outdated. Possible
809      reasons are that the epoch is higher, or the installed version was built
810      on a different OS version. (#19138, jmr in r64960)
811
812    - Distfile names are now percent-escaped in the download URLs when needed.
813      (#18736, jmr in r66794)
814
815    - buildnicevalue is now applied to configure and destroot commands, and to
816      build commands with unusual names. (#18304, raimue in r65076/r65808)
817
818    - Removed hardcoded /opt/local prefix from the base dmg resources.
819      (#17633, jmr in r66776)
820
821    - Fixed an error that occurred when archive mode was enabled but
822      ${prefix}/var/macports/packages did not exist. (#17579, jmr in r66775)
823
824    - Syncing rsync sources now tries to get a platform-specific version of
825      the PortIndex from the server, and skips this if the local copy is less
826      than a day old. All sync methods now update the PortIndex at the end.
827      (#17157, jmr in r66846/r67207)
828
829    - portindex(1) now skips parsing Portfiles whose modification time is
830      older than the current PortIndex, instead reusing the existing entry.
831      (#16235, jmr in r66845)
832
833    - Added a 'requested' flag to the registry that indicates which ports were
834      installed explicitly (as opposed to as a dependency of something else).
835      This enables the new 'requested', 'unrequested' and 'leaves' pseudo-
836      ports, as well as the --follow-dependencies option for uninstall.
837      The setrequested and unsetrequested actions will set and clear the flag,
838      respectively.
839      (#15260, jmr in r64517, r64663, r65546, r66037, r66200, r66215)
840
841    - The macports1.0 directory is now installed to
842      ${prefix}/share/macports/Tcl rather than /Library/Tcl. A symlink will be
843      installed in the old location if there is nothing there already, so
844      'package require macports' will still work in tclsh.
845      (#12943, jmr in r65055)
846
847    - Added warning and error messags when Xcode is old enough to cause
848      problems or too old to use at all, respectively. (#12794, jmr in r66771)
849
850    - Removed the rather outdated copy of sqlite3 from the source tree, made
851      the sqlite3 directory configurable, and added defaults for non-darwin
852      platforms. (#12231, jmr in r64358/r64363)
853
854    - There is a new 'archivefetch' target which is run before unarchive when
855      archive mode is enabled, and attempts to download the archive from a
856      server. There are currently no sites configured to download from (these
857      are stored in the ports tree like the mirror sites used for fetch), but
858      you can set ARCHIVE_SITE_LOCAL in the environment. Note that there is no
859      integrity checking for archives yet. (#8571, jmr in r64816)
860
861    - Now recording negative variants in the registry, which stops deselected
862      variants from being reactivated on upgrade due to default_variants or
863      variants.conf settings. (#2377, jmr in r64533)
864
865    - Added support for pre- and post- procedures for the activate, deactivate
866      and uninstall targets. This feature requires portdbformat sqlite. There
867      was limited support for pre- and post-activate previously, but the
868      procedures were only run when installing the port, not when activating
869      an inactive version. (#1068, #4228, #18273; jmr in r64638/r64639)
870
871    - Integrated the sqlite-based registry2.0 code. The portdbformat variable
872      in macports.conf can be set to 'sqlite' to enable it. Existing flat
873      receipts will be converted the first time port(1) is run with sufficient
874      privileges. Original code by sfiera, fixed and integrated by jmr in
875      r63398 and following. The new format lacks a number of problems that the
876      old one suffers from, including #13054 (dependencies from old port
877      versions stick around across upgrades) and #14123 (files whose paths
878      differ only in case are left behind when uninstalling).
879
880    - Fixed file list in +CONTENTS file in archives. (#21864, jmr in r59882)
881
882    - Fixed a few issues reported with building MacPorts on Linux. (#22716)
883
884    - Upgrade will now always choose the port that is active when following
885      dependencies that could be satisfied by more than one port and more than
886      one of these is installed, instead of choosing the one actually named in
887      the depspec. (#23921, jmr in r60883)
888
889    - Extracting from a disk image ("use_dmg yes") no longer fails when there
890      is a space in $worksrcdir. (#23456, raimue in r67089)
891
892    - Added a configure.sdkroot option which can be used to build against a
893      Mac OS X SDK. It is empty by default unless the value of
894      macosx_deployment_target is not the current OS version, or the universal
895      variant is set and the current platform is PowerPC Tiger. It is also
896      possible to set macosx_deployment_target globally in macports.conf now,
897      but this is unsupported. (#19875, jmr in r66924)
898
899    - Add "fs-traverse -tails" which only returns the part following the
900      specified directory (#21873, raimue in r65785)
901
902    - Allow gcc45 port to be used in configure.compiler (ryandesign in r62223)
903
904    - svn checkouts now use peg revisions instead of operative revisions,
905      so they'll continue to work if a repository gets reorganized
906      (#20777, ryandesign in r60573)
907
908    - Print the location of the log file when a target fails (jmr in r60769)
909
910    - Use CommonCrypto/CommonDigest instead of OpenSSL libcrypto.
911      (toby in r58131, jberry in r59715)
912
913    - New "patch.type gnu" for GNU patch, similar to "build.type gnu"
914      for GNU make. Only makes a difference for BSD patch and BSD make.
915      (afb in r58020)
916
917    - Updated the FreeBSD package (ObjC/Foundation is now optional).
918      (afb in r57889)
919
920    - Don't use "make -j1" for build.jobs=1, but prefer "make" instead.
921      (afb in r57998)
922
923    - Add new "use_xz yes" port option to allow distfiles in xz format.
924      (afb in r57827)
925
926    - Archive mode now uses build_arch in archive names rather than os.arch.
927      (snc in r58977)
928
929    - Add new log command and keeping of debug output for easy access
930      after port has run (GSoC 2009 logging project by enl, merged in r60372)
931
932    - Some of the build_arch flags now appear in LDFLAGS as well, fixing
933      several ports when building for a different architecture (jeremyhu in
934      r60662, jmr in r60680)
935
936    - Fixed 'merge' proc for paths with spaces, and for symlinks on Snow
937      Leopard, and added an error message for when 'merge' is not called
938      correctly (#21852, ryandesign in r58776, r58777, r58778)
939
940Release 1.8.2 (2010-01-01 by jmr):
941
942    - Fixed 'port load' for non-root installations (#21713, jmr in r60774)
943
944    - Fixed a bug that could cause port to hit the open file limit
945      (#22959, jmr in r61770)
946
947    - Fixed an error when installing from source or selfupdating on Tiger with
948      an svn-based ports tree (#20760, jmr in r61302)
949
950    - Fixed an error when selfupdating as root with a prefix that is not owned
951      by root (#21010, jmr in r60798)
952
953    - Stopped uninstall from failing when files in the port image have already
954      been deleted (#22001, jmr in r59318, r59654)
955
956    - Stopped printing command output multiple times on failure (#21084,
957      jmr in r60770)
958
959    - Started showing bug reporting instructions on failure (jmr in r60770)
960
961    - Fixed a bug where 'port dmg' could create too small an image and run out
962      of space (#22404, jmr in r60260)
963
964    - Fixed a bug where reinplace could fail when running port without root
965      privileges (#20896, jmr in r59597)
966
967    - Started setting our own umask since Snow Leopard makes us inherit
968      the user's even when using sudo (#21389, jmr in r59585)
969
970Release 1.8.1 (2009-09-28 by jmr):
971
972    - Installer error messages now display properly even from the Snow Leopard
973      MacPorts dmg. (jmr in r56448)
974
975    - 'fetch.type svn' no longer requires the installation of the subversion
976      port as of Snow Leopard. (toby in r56160; raimue in r56162)
977
978    - Updated manpages and 'port help' output (ryandesign in r56472, r56473,
979      r56474; blb in r56666, r57048, r57131)
980
981    - Fixed syncing using the daily tarball. (#21034, toby in r56889)
982
983    - Fixed 'port load' (#21128, raimue in r57055)
984
985    - Improved error message when an expression on the command line does not
986      match any ports (jmr in r57026)
987
988    - Stopped recording the completion of the install phase in the
989      statefile, which led to errors if the port was uninstalled but the work
990      dir was not cleaned, and the port was then installed again.
991      (jmr/raimue in r57801, 57820)
992
993Release 1.8.0 (2009-08-28 by jmr):
994    - There is now a 'build_arch' variable, available in portfiles and
995      configurable in macports.conf, which sets the CPU architecture that
996      ports should be compiled for (when not building universal). Its default
997      is the same as that of the Apple-supplied /usr/bin/gcc.
998      (#19874, jmr in r53217,r53386,r53420,r53494,r53860,r54236)
999
1000    - MacPorts base now works on and has appropriate default settings for
1001      Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. (#19874, toby/mww/jkh in r38271,r40060,
1002      r40836,r43976,r52397)
1003     
1004    - MacPorts now requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later. (Panther is not
1005      just "unsupported", it really won't work.)
1006
1007    - The universal_sysroot and universal_target keys have been removed from
1008      macports.conf. These settings are now handled automatically.
1009      (toby in r52324)
1010
1011    - Added a 'replaced_by' portfile option. This causes upgrade to deactivate
1012      the current port and install the port specified by this option. This
1013      also allows ports to be renamed. Upgrade accepts a --no-replace option
1014      which disables this behaviour. (#20157, jmr in r54378)
1015
1016    - The upgrade action now accepts --force and --enforce-variants options.
1017      The former causes ports to be rebuilt even if they are not outdated, and
1018      the global -f option no longer has this effect (it had too many effects
1019      already). The latter causes ports to be rebuilt if the requested
1020      variants do not match those installed (even if they are not outdated).
1021      (#20156, jmr in r54376)
1022
1023    - Dependencies can be satisfied by ports that are installed but not
1024      available in the ports tree (useful for testing uncommitted ports).
1025      (jmr in r52075, r52160)
1026
1027    - Ports that are installed but not available in the ports tree no longer
1028      cause an error when running commands like 'port clean installed'. They
1029      are skipped and a warning is printed. (#19253, jmr in r50865)
1030
1031    - Selfupdate no longer disables readline support unless readline is found
1032      in /usr/local, which has historically caused failures.
1033      (#19035, jmr in r50868)
1034
1035    - Uninstalling a port that is not installed now produces an informational
1036      message rather than an error. (#18984, jmr in r53709)
1037
1038    - Added a 'conflicts' portfile option. Conflicting ports will be detected
1039      during dependency calculation. (#18794, blb/jmr in r51525)
1040
1041    - 'port selfupdate' now explicitly states precisely what it does. (#18512)
1042
1043    - Operating system and architecture information is now shown in debug
1044      output. (#18435, raimue in r46669)
1045
1046    - Fixed a bug that could break some symlinks to man pages. (#18302)
1047
1048    - Switched to a more efficient algorithm for looking up port information
1049      in the index, which makes many operations faster.
1050      (#18259, jmr/blb in r47110)
1051
1052    - MacPorts base now tries to avoid using commands that come from ports, so
1053      that a broken port can't break the base code. (#18149)
1054
1055    - Deleting all the contents of a portfile option no longer unsets the
1056      option entirely. (#17865, toby in r44901)
1057
1058    - Removed the code that upgrades from the old DarwinPorts filesystem
1059      layout. Trying to upgrade to 1.8.0+ from a version older than 1.5.0 will
1060      produce an error message saying you need to install 1.7.1 first.
1061      (#17619, jmr in r53260)
1062
1063    - port(1) now reports its version as dotted-decimal rather than floating
1064      point. (#17420)
1065
1066    - Dependencies are now always obtained by parsing the Portfile and not
1067      from the PortIndex, since the latter can't provide expanded variables
1068      like $prefix which may be used in path: depspecs. (#17182)
1069
1070    - Newline characters in long_description can no longer cause receipt
1071      corruption. (#16619, blb in r50663)
1072
1073    - Now unlocking the filemap when it is not in use. This allows e.g.
1074      'port contents' to be run while another port instance is performing
1075      installs. Note that running more than one simultaneous port instance
1076      that will modify the registry can easily fail, though hopefully
1077      without corrupting anything. (#16246, jmr in r51133)
1078
1079    - Removed some irrelevant debug output that was being printed when a port
1080      failed. (#16203, jmr in r53706)
1081
1082    - Added new depends_fetch and depends_extract options, for dependencies
1083      that are needed to fetch or extract the port, respectively.
1084      (#15161, jmr in r51780)
1085
1086    - Packages (including the one for MacPorts base) now correctly indicate
1087      that they can only be installed on the root volume.
1088      (#14809, jmr in r53250)
1089
1090    - Using an alternative fetch or extract type now adds appropriate
1091      dependencies automatically, e.g. 'use_zip yes' adds a dep on unzip, and
1092      'fetch.type svn' adds a dep on subversion. (#13981, jmr in r43782)
1093
1094    - port(1) should now exit with an appropriate status code when an error is
1095      encountered. Use the -p option to continue despite errors.
1096      (#13918, jmr in r53704)
1097
1098    - Proxy information can now be obtained from System Preferences and from
1099      macports.conf. The older method using environment variables no longer
1100      works out of the box on Leopard due to changes that Apple made to the
1101      default /etc/sudoers. (#13158, blb in r47194)
1102
1103    - Improved handling of malformed variant definitions.
1104      (#12596, jmr in r50719, r50721)
1105
1106    - Cope a little better with missing receipt files. (#19540, jmr in r51138)
1107
1108    - Fixed a major memory leak in the filemap code.
1109      (#12022, pguyot in r51419)
1110
1111    - Improved the logic for determining whether phases can be skipped. This
1112      fixes the specific problems of being unable to build packages of ports
1113      that are installed, port not running specific phases (e.g. build)
1114      when told to if the port is installed, and inactive dependencies being
1115      rebuilt instead of simply activated. (#10881, #16260, jmr in r50490)
1116
1117    - When archive mode is enabled, ports will no longer be rebuilt if an
1118      archive is available. (#10785, jmr in r50416)
1119
1120    - Activating a port will now first deactivate any other version of the
1121      same port that is already active. (#10571, jmr in r53711)
1122
1123    - Added a 'license' portfile option, which is displayed in 'port info'
1124      output. (#7493, jmr in r50801)
1125
1126    - port lint recognizes new top-level category php (#19329, ryandesign)
1127
1128    - Do not print header lines when the quiet option -q is set
1129      (raimue in r48558)
1130
1131    - svn.tag is deprecated, use svn.revision instead (raimue in r48222-48223)
1132
1133    - port -i option has been removed (blb in r48218)
1134
1135    - ui_warn logs to stderr instead of stdout (raimue in r48217)
1136
1137    - Remove --pretend option for port selfupdate, use global dry-run option
1138      instead (raimue in r48125)
1139
1140    - port(1) option -y for dry-run (#11892, gwhitney/jmr in r43726)
1141
1142    - New pseudo-port 'obsolete' to identify ports which are installed but no
1143      longer in the PortIndex (raimue in r47253)
1144
1145    - MacPorts can now perform fetch, extract, patch, configure and build in a
1146      user rather than system owned location. By default, this is
1147      ~/.macports/opt. This allows MacPorts to do all but the install of the
1148      port without root privileges. (gsoc08-privileges)
1149
1150    - MacPorts can now automatically drop privileges so as to avoid running as
1151      root whenever possible. To enable this, pass the desired user to run as
1152      to configure with the --with-macports-user option. (gsoc08-privileges)
1153
1154    - The Portfile format has a number of new boolean attributes to indicate
1155      when an action should or should not be run with root privileges:
1156      'patch.asroot', 'build.asroot', 'configure.asroot', 'destroot.asroot',
1157      and 'install.asroot'. The default for all is "no". If the prefix folder
1158      (by default /opt/local) is not writable, MacPorts will attempt to
1159      elevate privileges to root for the install phase. (gsoc08-privileges)
1160
1161    - A "make group" command has been added to the Makefile and a
1162      "--with-shared-directory" switch to the configure script. Running "make
1163      group" will create a macports group. "--with-shared-directory" will let
1164      let the group specified by "--with-install-group" have full read write
1165      access to the /opt/local hierarchy. This will allow users who are
1166      members of the new macports group to have full write permissions to
1167      /opt/local and its subfolders, and hence to install ports which only
1168      affect that hierarchy without requiring root privileges.
1169      (gsoc08-privileges)
1170
1171    - A switch called "--with-no-root-privileges" has been added for use by
1172      user installing MacPorts for their own use only. An example configure
1173      command would be "./configure
1174      --prefix=/Users/{your-user-name-here}/.macports/opt
1175      --with-no-root-privileges" (gsoc08-privileges)
1176
1177    - Add several new options to port search, looks in name and description by
1178      default (#15434, raimue)
1179
1180    - Add xpkg package type, xar-based format with XML. (afb)
1181
1182    - Split portpkg creation out from portsubmit phase. (afb)
1183
1184    - Make dependencies displayed in port info respect variants
1185      specified in variants.conf; collapse port deps to be an alias
1186      for port info with appropriate flags. Note this changes output
1187      format of port deps somewhat.  (#11891, gwhitney in r44340)
1188
1189    - Make dependencies in port upgrade respect variants as specified
1190      (in order of precedence) on command line, latest installed
1191      version, or variants.conf .  (#8221, gwhitney in r44362)
1192
1193    - Add select action, which integrates *_select tools into port.
1194      (#17477, perry)
1195
1196    - The variants action additionally shows default variants, conflicting
1197      variants and variants' dependencies. (#14178, #15628, perry)
1198
1199    - Implicit variants (e.g., darwin) can no longer be explicitly
1200      set/unset. (#12563, perry in r46938, jmr in r53371)
1201
1202Release 1.7.1 (2009-03-28 by raimue):
1203    - Trailing slashes are stripped from the prefix passed to configure, which
1204      prevents incorrect mtree violation warnings. (#13789)
1205
1206    - Fix freshmeat-based livecheck (#18887)
1207
1208    - Fix issue on direct-mode installs where checking for installed ports
1209      wasn't properly looking (it only matched for revision 0 and no
1210      variants) (#17762)
1211
1212    - Add new "use_7z yes" port option to allow distfiles in 7z format
1213      (#18521, ryandesign)
1214
1215    - port lint no longer requires variable master_sites if the port has no
1216      distfiles (#18479, ryandesign)
1217
1218    - Upgrade will no longer accept ports that are not installed (but it still
1219      installs new ports as dependencies if needed). In particular, this means
1220      that "port upgrade all" will no longer proceed to install every
1221      available port. (jmr in r46052)
1222
1223    - Add mkdtemp Tcl command to create temporary directories. (#17181, perry)
1224
1225    - Add 'apple-gcc-4.2' option to configure.compiler (#18426, ryandesign)
1226
1227    - Create ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} in destroot
1228      automatically (r45614, raimue)
1229
1230    - Make the postflight procedure a bit smarter about which login files
1231      to update for bash and tcsh (#17588)
1232
1233    - Add error messages to package installers when the wrong OS package
1234      is being installed (#13141)
1235
1236Release 1.7.0 (2008-12-13 by blb):
1237    - Global variant descriptions using variant_descriptions.conf in the new
1238      resources directory in the ports tree (#14482, raimue)
1239
1240    - Move port resources into the ports tree (#14553, raimue and blb)
1241
1242    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
1243
1244    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
1245
1246    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
1247
1248    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
1249      --nitpick is used (#14799)
1250
1251    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
1252
1253    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
1254
1255    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
1256      phases (#11897)
1257
1258    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
1259      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
1260
1261    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
1262      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
1263      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
1264      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
1265
1266    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
1267      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
1268      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
1269      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
1270      in r38683)
1271
1272    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
1273
1274    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
1275      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
1276      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
1277
1278    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
1279      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
1280      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
1281      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, r37621)
1282
1283    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
1284      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
1285      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
1286      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
1287
1288    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
1289      (#15577, afb in r37501)
1290
1291    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
1292
1293    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
1294      running (raimue)
1295
1296    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
1297      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
1298      jmr in r37217, r37255)
1299
1300    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
1301      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
1302      r37121)
1303
1304    - Stopped 'port -R upgrade' from processing more ports than it should, and
1305      from processing ports multiple times. (#10827, jmr in r37046)
1306
1307    - Don't include build.nice and build.jobs in destroot.cmd (#15295)
1308
1309    - The default universal variant is no longer added when we know it won't
1310      work. (#12170, jmr in r36764)
1311
1312    - During upgrade, if the latest installed version of a port is not active,
1313      the currently active version (if any) is now deactivated before trying
1314      to activate the latest version. (#12013, jmr in r36762)
1315
1316    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is
1317      inactive and there is at least one other version of the same port
1318      installed (#11501, jmr in r36747)
1319
1320    - Duplicate entries can no longer build up in the dependency map (#8763,
1321      jmr in r36745)
1322
1323    - In image mode, dependencies are no longer treated as being satisfied
1324      when the satisfying port is not active (#7361, jmr in r36735)
1325
1326    - Fixed a bug where upgrade could create too many nested subdirectories
1327      in distpath, archive.destpath and unarchive.srcpath (#11971, jmr in
1328      r36679, r36687, r36688)
1329
1330    - Declaring a dependency on a nonexistent port now always causes an error
1331      (#10768, jmr in r36648)
1332
1333    - Explicitly use unsetenv(3) on all environment variables (#13930, #16010,
1334      #16233)
1335
1336    - Make the included tclthread compile on Leopard if configured (#13495)
1337
1338    - Allow distfiles to be disk images with "use_dmg yes" port option (#13509,
1339      ryandesign in r36708)
1340
1341    - ruby.setup now takes a type 'fetch' to just fetch/extract (eridius in r35773)
1342
1343    - Fetch now prefers mirrors with lower ping times (#14891, jmr in r35748,
1344      r35806, r35808)
1345
1346    - Fetching of daily snapshot tarballs of the ports tree as an alternative to rsync
1347      (raimue in r35647, r35648)
1348
1349    - port uninstall now takes --follow-dependents to uninstall all dependents
1350      (#14637, eridius/raimue in r34977, r35042, r36160)
1351
1352    - New fetch.type git (#14232, eridius in r34875)
1353
1354    - fixed "port mdmg" getting block size wrong for the disk image (#13968, afb in r34844)
1355
1356    - always set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, to avoid bugs with older glibtool (afb in r34541)
1357
1358    - port lint now checks all dependencies so that the ports actually exist (#14380)
1359
1360    - added target_state to avoid the need for privileges for lint/livecheck (#13458)
1361
1362    - Overhauled output for port info/deps/dependents/search (raimue in
1363      r34354, r34371, r34391, r34395, r34402, r34420)
1364
1365    - Revert the default +universal MDT/SDK to 10.4/10.4u on Tiger and 10.5/10.5 on Leopard
1366
1367    - port lint shouldn't require variable master_sites for fetch.type != standard (#14377)
1368
1369    - Add "tcldoc" documentation comments and "tcldox" Doxyfile for doxygen (#12048)
1370
1371    - Add --pretend and --nosync flags to selfupdate (raimue in r33938, r33939,
1372      r33940, r33941)
1373
1374    - Work around autoconf X11 detection bugs on darwin (afb in r33717)
1375
1376    - Fix bugs with X11 lib detection on Leopard (#14089, afb in r33716)
1377
1378    - Add configure.{optflags,m32,m64,march,mtune} (afb in r33503, r33599)
1379
1380    - Add applications_dir and frameworks_dir configuration (r33499, r33722)
1381
1382    - Remove some hardcoded paths (such as /usr/X11R6, /usr/bin/install) (afb in r33501, r33619, r33620)
1383
1384    - Add configure.{universal_target,universal_sysroot,universal_archs} (afb in r33478).
1385
1386    - Change default +universal platform back to: 10.4/10.4u.sdk/i386 ppc (r33087, r33107).
1387
1388    - Add `port platform` info action that outputs current platform (#12302, afb in r32724).
1389
1390    - Enable 64 bit environment, ppc64 x86_64, for all +universal builds (mww in r32194).
1391
1392    - Add 'merge' function for merging multiple (single arch) destroots into one (universal)
1393      destroot (mww in r31954).
1394
1395    - If checksum is mismatched, and in verbose mode, present a corrected pre-fabricated checksum statement
1396      to make it easy to update a port (jberry in r32441).
1397
1398    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_prefix"" runtime error on Panther
1399      (eridius in r32525).
1400
1401    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_channels"" runtime error on Panther
1402      (eridius in r32514).
1403
1404    - "port lint" now recognizes non-canonical modelines (afb in r32480).
1405
1406    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
1407
1408    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
1409      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_version (jmpp in r32353).
1410
1411    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents
1412      (jmpp in r32336).
1413
1414    - Fixed a Panther build failure due to missing sqlite headers (jmpp in r32212).
1415
1416    - Fixed a build failure by passing the base/src/cregistry/cregistry.a archive through ranlib (jmpp in r32105).
1417
1418
1419Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
1420
1421    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
1422      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
1423      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
1424      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
1425
1426    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
1427      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
1428
1429    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
1430
1431    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
1432      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
1433
1434    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
1435      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
1436      (#10651, jberry in r31139, r31140).
1437
1438    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
1439      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
1440      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
1441      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).
1442
1443    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
1444
1445    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
1446      multiple files (mww in r31028)
1447
1448    - add optional configure.pipe output (afb in r29604 & r30824)
1449
1450    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)
1451
1452    - add configure.[awk|bison|pkg_config|pkg_config_path] (r30761)
1453
1454    - Auto-mode for number of parallel build threads (if number of jobs is set to "0") (r30739)
1455
1456    - Add option use_parallel_build [yes|no] to declare if a port can be built in parallel (r30714).
1457
1458    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).
1459
1460    - Display warnings when using old versions of Mac OS X and Xcode Tools
1461      (#12794, afb in r30338 & r30477)
1462
1463    - Remove configure.macosx_deployment_target, add global macosx_deployment_target
1464      (eridius in r30396).
1465
1466    - add support for LZMA compression, for making .tlz archives (afb in r30307)
1467
1468    - add configure.[perl|python|ruby] for interpreters, .install for avoiding breakage
1469      due to coreutils, .libs
1470
1471    - added startupitem.netchange boolean flag (#12931, N_Ox in r30086).
1472
1473    - added generic GNU livecheck (N_Ox in r29812).
1474
1475    - fixed bug where all .mpkg packages were missing their welcome page (afb in r29517)
1476
1477    - better defaults for implicit ui_channels behaviour (eridius in r29498).
1478
1479    - prevent creating PKG packages with /etc or /var or /tmp (#2102, afb in r29445)
1480
1481    - add optional configure.ccache and configure.distcc filters (#5390, afb in r29438)
1482
1483    - Explicitly sort fs-traverse so it behaves predictably on Linux systems
1484      (#12622, eridius in r29412).
1485
1486    - add configure.objc/objcflags for Objective-C
1487
1488    - add optional build.nice (0) and build.jobs (1) modifiers (afb in r28634 & r28673)
1489
1490    - make tclobjc1.0 compile with GNUstep and NXConstantString class (afb in r28668)
1491
1492    - fix bsdmake/gnumake defaults for FreeBSD and Linux platforms (afb in r28660)
1493
1494    - port lint command, for Portfile verification (#463, afb in r28170)
1495
1496    - add configure.macosx_deployment_target for configure flags
1497
1498    - add configure.javac/classpath for Java
1499
1500    - add configure.fflags/fcflags/f90flags for Fortran flags
1501
1502    - Mark "python" group code as deprecated
1503
1504    - Add group code for Python 3.0
1505
1506    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
1507
1508    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
1509      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
1510
1511    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
1512
1513    - Chris Pickel's GSoC2007 work: registry2.0 & cregistry (mainly r27518 & r27520)
1514
1515    - Eugene Pimenov's GSoC2007 work: Trace lib on unix sockets (r26682).
1516
1517    - Elias Pipping's GSoC2007 work: merge.rb on his personal /users/pipping svn dir.
1518
1519
1520Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
1521
1522    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
1523      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
1524      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
1525
1526
1527Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
1528
1529    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
1530      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
1531
1532    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
1533      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
1534
1535    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
1536
1537    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
1538      (mww in r27199).
1539
1540    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
1541
1542    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
1543
1544    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
1545
1546    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
1547      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
1548
1549    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
1550
1551    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
1552
1553    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
1554
1555
1556Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
1557
1558    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
1559      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
1560      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
1561      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
1562      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
1563
1564    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
1565
1566    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
1567
1568    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
1569      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
1570      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
1571      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
1572      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
1573
1574    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
1575
1576    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
1577      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
1578
1579    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
1580
1581    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
1582      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
1583
1584    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
1585      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
1586      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
1587      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
1588      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
1589      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
1590
1591    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
1592
1593    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
1594
1595    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
1596
1597    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
1598      to detect problems between required and negated variants
1599      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
1600
1601    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
1602      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
1603      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
1604      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
1605
1606    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
1607      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
1608
1609    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
1610      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
1611      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
1612
1613    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
1614      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
1615         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
1616         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
1617      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
1618      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
1619      (jberry r25795).
1620
1621    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
1622
1623    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
1624      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
1625      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
1626
1627    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
1628      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
1629
1630    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
1631      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
1632
1633    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
1634      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
1635      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
1636      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
1637      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
1638      (boeyms in r25310)
1639
1640Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
1641
1642    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
1643
1644Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
1645
1646    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
1647
1648    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
1649      This allows information about variants to be displayed (e.g. dependencies).
1650      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
1651      (eridius r25255).
1652
1653    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
1654
1655    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
1656      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
1657      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
1658
1659    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
1660      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
1661
1662    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
1663      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
1664      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
1665      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
1666      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
1667      (boeyms r25110)
1668
1669    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
1670      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
1671      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
1672      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
1673
1674    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
1675
1676    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
1677      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
1678
1679    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
1680      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
1681
1682    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
1683
1684    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
1685      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
1686
1687    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
1688      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
1689      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
1690      (jberry r25146)
1691
1692    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
1693         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
1694         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
1695         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
1696           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
1697           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
1698
1699        Example:
1700
1701            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
1702                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
1703            }
1704
1705        (jberry r25147)
1706
1707    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
1708      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
1709
1710
1711Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
1712
1713    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
1714      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
1715      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
1716      it differently.
1717
1718    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
1719      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
1720      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
1721      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
1722      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
1723
1724    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
1725      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
1726      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
1727
1728    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
1729
1730    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
1731
1732    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
1733      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
1734
1735    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
1736
1737    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
1738
1739    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
1740      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
1741      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
1742
1743    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
1744      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
1745
1746    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
1747      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
1748
1749    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
1750      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
1751
1752    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
1753
1754    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
1755      (pguyot r24273).
1756
1757    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
1758      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
1759      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
1760
1761    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
1762      This work is in progress. (jberry)
1763       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
1764       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
1765         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
1766
1767    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
1768      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
1769
1770    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
1771      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
1772
1773    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
1774      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
1775
1776    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
1777
1778    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
1779
1780Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
1781
1782    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
1783      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
1784      (jberry r24151).
1785
1786    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
1787      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
1788      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
1789      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
1790      (pipping r24148).
1791
1792Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
1793
1794    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
1795      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
1796
1797    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
1798      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
1799
1800    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
1801      for submitter information.
1802      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
1803        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
1804        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
1805            - PORTSRC
1806            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
1807            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
1808          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
1809       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
1810
1811    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
1812      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
1813
1814    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
1815      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
1816      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
1817      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1818
1819    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1820
1821    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
1822      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
1823
1824Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
1825
1826    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
1827      (pipping in r23343).
1828
1829    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
1830      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
1831
1832    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
1833      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
1834      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
1835
1836    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
1837      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
1838
1839    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
1840      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
1841      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
1842
1843    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
1844
1845    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
1846      r22313).
1847
1848    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
1849      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
1850      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
1851      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
1852
1853    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
1854      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
1855
1856    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
1857      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
1858
1859    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
1860      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
1861
1862    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
1863      r23967)
1864
1865
1866Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
1867
1868    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
1869      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
1870
1871    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
1872
1873    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
1874      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
1875
1876    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
1877
1878    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
1879
1880    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
1881      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
1882
1883    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
1884
1885    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
1886
1887    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
1888      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
1889
1890    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
1891      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
1892
1893    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
1894      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
1895      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
1896
1897    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
1898
1899    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
1900      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
1901
1902    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
1903      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
1904
1905    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
1906      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
1907
1908    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
1909
1910    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
1911
1912    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
1913      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
1914
1915    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
1916
1917    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
1918
1919    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
1920
1921    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
1922      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
1923
1924    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
1925      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
1926
1927    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
1928
1929    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
1930
1931
1932Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
1933
1934    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
1935      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
1936
1937    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
1938
1939    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
1940      code. (pguyot)
1941
1942    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
1943      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
1944
1945    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
1946      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
1947
1948    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
1949      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
1950      /usr/local. (pguyot)
1951
1952    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
1953
1954    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
1955      (josh_root, blb)
1956
1957    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
1958      are modified. (pguyot)
1959
1960    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
1961      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1962
1963    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
1964      variable. (pguyot)
1965
1966    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
1967      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
1968      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
1969
1970Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
1971
1972    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
1973
1974    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
1975      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
1976
1977    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
1978      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
1979      SVN. (pguyot)
1980
1981    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
1982      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
1983
1984    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
1985      (jberry)
1986
1987    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
1988      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
1989
1990    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
1991
1992    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
1993
1994    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1995
1996    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
1997       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
1998       * mention interactive and batch modes
1999       * document extensions to info command.
2000
2001    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
2002
2003    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
2004      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
2005      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
2006
2007Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
2008
2009    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
2010      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
2011      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
2012
2013    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
2014      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
2015
2016    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
2017      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
2018
2019    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
2020
2021    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
2022
2023    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
2024      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
2025
2026    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
2027      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
2028
2029    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
2030
2031    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
2032      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
2033
2034    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
2035
2036    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
2037      (jberry)
2038
2039    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
2040      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
2041      (landonf)
2042
2043    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
2044      installed. (jmpp)
2045
2046    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
2047      project path. (pguyot)
2048
2049    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
2050      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
2051
2052    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
2053      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
2054
2055    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
2056      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
2057
2058    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
2059      (olegb)
2060
2061    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
2062      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
2063
2064    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
2065      iterating). (jberry)
2066
2067    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
2068      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
2069      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
2070
2071    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
2072
2073    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
2074      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
2075      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
2076      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
2077      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
2078      shoot yourself. (jberry)
2079
2080    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
2081      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
2082
2083    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
2084      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
2085
2086    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
2087
2088    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
2089      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
2090        several bug fixes.
2091      * cleaned up the code.
2092      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
2093        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
2094        reported creations).
2095      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
2096        overwritten.
2097
2098    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
2099
2100    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
2101      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
2102      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
2103
2104        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
2105          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
2106          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
2107
2108        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
2109          input following any commands given as arguments.
2110
2111        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
2112          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
2113          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
2114            #!/usr/bin/env portf
2115
2116        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
2117
2118        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
2119
2120        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
2121          interactive/batch mode.
2122
2123        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
2124
2125        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
2126          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
2127          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
2128
2129    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
2130      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
2131      (jberry).
2132
2133    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
2134      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
2135
2136    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
2137      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
2138      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
2139
2140    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
2141      (pguyot)
2142
2143    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
2144
2145    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
2146      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
2147      (jberry)
2148
2149    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
2150      MacOS X. (mww)
2151
2152    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
2153      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
2154      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
2155      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
2156      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
2157      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
2158      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
2159      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
2160      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
2161      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
2162      (jberry) 2006-02-16
2163
2164Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
2165
2166    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
2167      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
2168      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
2169      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
2170      fat, configure as follows:
2171        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
2172                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
2173
2174    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
2175      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
2176      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
2177
2178Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
2179
2180    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
2181      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
2182      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
2183        port uninstall vim @1.0
2184      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
2185      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
2186
2187    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
2188      destroot, too. (mww)
2189
2190    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
2191      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
2192
2193    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
2194      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
2195      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
2196
2197    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
2198      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
2199      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
2200
2201    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
2202      groups of ports.
2203      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
2204      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
2205
2206      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
2207        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
2208
2209      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
2210      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
2211      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
2212      The selectors are:
2213      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
2214      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
2215      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
2216
2217    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
2218      ports or groups of ports.
2219      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
2220
2221    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
2222      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
2223      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
2224      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
2225
2226    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
2227      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
2228
2229    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
2230      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
2231      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
2232
2233    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
2234      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
2235      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
2236      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
2237      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
2238      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
2239
2240    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
2241      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
2242      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
2243
2244    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
2245      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
2246
2247    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
2248      ones considered harmful (blb)
2249
2250    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
2251      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
2252
2253    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
2254      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
2255
2256    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
2257        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
2258          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
2259        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
2260          reports (pguyot)
2261        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
2262
2263    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
2264      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
2265
2266    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
2267
2268    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
2269      echo (the expanded arguments),
2270      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
2271      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
2272      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
2273      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
2274      (jberry)
2275
2276    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
2277      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
2278      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
2279      in a similar fashion (jberry)
