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

58
59    - Setting configure.compiler will now automatically add a dependency if

63      (raimue in r102248)
64
65    - Added 'subport:' pseudo-portname that expands to ports that provide

73
74    - Began using sandbox-exec(1) on 10.5+ to prevent commands executed using

88      (raimue in r97868)
89
90    - Fix an endless loop that could be triggered in rev-upgrade when a broken
91      port is not in the index, e.g. when it has been deleted from the tree,
92      or it was installed directly from a Portfile not in the tree.
93      (cal in r100129, jmr in r101313)
94

111      @macports.org maintainer address is used. (#35925, ryandesign in r97264)
112

136      continue (jmr in r95382)
137
138    - Added a log message when everything to be installed has an unsatisfied
139      dependency, such as in the case of circular dependencies (jmr in r93962)

141    - Fixed incorrect error message when installing a port that has a
142      dependency that is not in the index (#31130, jmr in r93511)

147
148    - Do not print detailed progress information in rev-upgrade when stdout is
149      not a terminal (#34480, cal in r93221,r93222)
150
151    - Made rev-upgrade avoid trying to upgrade ports that are not in the index
152      (jmr in r93197)
153
154    - Fixed rev-upgrade disabling source-only mode in its first upgrade pass
155      (jmr in r93153)

163      ADD COLUMN (#34463, cal in r93256)
164
165Release 2.1.0 (2012-05-15 by jmr):
166    - New configure.compiler options: macports-clang-2.9, macports-clang-3.0,
167      macports-clang-3.1, macports-gcc-4.7, macports-gcc-4.8
168      (jeremyhu in r86719, ryandesign in r91521)
169
170    - Avoid using pkg-config to find sqlite3 in our configure script unless it
171      can't be found by other means, because some third-party packages
172      incorrectly install a /usr/bin/pkg-config that points to an incompatible
173      copy of sqlite3. (#30932, dluke/jmr in r91512)
174
175    - 'port pkg' and 'port mpkg' will now create flat packages (i.e. a xar
176      archive rather than a directory) on 10.6+.
177      (jmr in r91317, r91329, r91331, r91437)
178
179    - Fixed dependencies sometimes being installed multiple times when
180      required with different archs. (#31794, jmr in r91357)

183      archive is available for download (and port is configured to use it).
184      (jmr in r91196, r91217)
185
186    - Added new config file archive_sites.conf, which can be used to configure
187      additional archive download sources. Each source has an associated
188      archive type; portarchivetype is now only used when creating archives
189      locally. Sources also have an associated prefix, applications_dir and
190      frameworks_dir, and if any of these do not match the current values, the
191      source is not used. (jmr in r91009)
192
193    - Xcode 4.3 support: Search harder for developer directory; advise user to
194      run xcode-select when necessary, searching for Xcode and suggesting
195      xcode-select commands.
196      (jberry, jmr in r89970,r89971,r89972,r89996,r89999,r90003,r90005-r90009,
197      r90018-r90019,r90024,r90031)
198
199    - warn about non-existing developer_dir when it's set in macports.conf
200      (cal in 90802)
201
202    - port automatically installs bsdmake when there's no bsdmake in $PATH and a
203      port sets build.type bsd (#33355, cal in r90650)
204
205    - Added -W option for reinplace that sets a base directory that all file
206      arguments are interpreted as being relative to. (raimue in r90610)
207
208    - Added macports.conf options 'host_blacklist' and 'preferred_hosts', used
209      for indicating lists of download hosts that should not be used or should
210      be used preferentially, respectively. These override the usual ping time
211      check. Ping times are also now cached for 24 hours. (jmr in r89459)
212
213    - Added 'rev-upgrade' action checking for broken linkage and rebuilding
214      ports containing broken files. Made rev-upgrade run automatically after
215      each upgrade or install.
216      (cal in branch gsoc11-rev-upgrade, merge in r88376, also cal, raimue, jmr
217      in r88377,r88411,r88441,r88511,r88666,r88732,r89180,r89659,r89661,r90102,
218      r90381)
219
220    - Added options controlling rev-upgrade behavior to macports.conf
221      (jmr, cal in r88725,r88794,r89189)
222
223    - port livecheck regex finds multiple matches on the same line
224      (raimue in r88031)
225
226    - Several improvements to port lint:
227      licenses, subversion properties, maintainer addresses
228      (#30194, snc, raimue in r85929, r86016, r89428, r89610)
229
230    - Added license_noconflict option to specify dependencies for which the
231      maintainer has manually checked license compatibility and wishes to
232      overrule the conservative automated checks. (jmr in r89004)
233
234    - Xcode 4.3 support: Use xcrun -find to find xcode compiler if it's not
235      found in /usr/bin.
236      (jberry, jmr in r88540,r88541,r88546,r88777,r88779,r88787,r89359,r89984,r90028)
237
238    - Added options compiler.blacklist, compiler.whitelist, and
239      compiler.fallback; to allow blacklisting, whitelisting, and setting the
240      fallback order for configure.compiler values, respectively.
241      (#30041, jmr in r88676)
242
243    - Fix sync with subdirectory of Subversion 1.7-format working copy
244      (#33573, jmr in 86872)
245
246    - Fixed conflicts not being checked for when installing ports that have no
247      dependencies. (#31571, dports in r85382)
248
249    - dmg postflight: quote all paths to handle the increasingly frequent
250      occurrence that $HOME contains spaces (#33583, ryandesign in r84345)
251
252    - dmg postflight: adjust wording of some messages (ryandesign in r84344)
253
254    - The deprecated Portfile options svn.tag, distcheck.check and
255      livecheck.check have been removed. (raimue in r82763)
256
257    - Implement new option-replace using lsearch/lreplace. The old behavior is
258      deprecated for option-replace with only one argument, but can still be
259      found in option-strsed.
260      (raimue in r82760, r82761)
261
262    - Added 'buildfromsource' macports.conf setting, which allows permanently
263      selecting the behaviour of the -s or -b option. (jmr in r81540)
264
265Release 2.0.4 (2012-02-25 by jmr)
266    - Added -locale option for reinplace (jeremyhu in r89839)
267
268    - Xcode 4.3 support: Change home directory for MacPorts user to
269      ${prefix}/var/macports/home.
270      (jberry, jmr in r89988, r89993, r90002, r90010, r90011)
271

273      (#31827, jmr in r89994, r90004)
274
275    - Fix use_xmkmf to honor xmkmf.env for its make Makefiles phase
276      (#31504, jeremyhu in r89537, r89538, r89539)
277
278    - Added configure.cxx setting when configure.compiler is apple-gcc-4.2
279      (jeremyhu in r80248)
280
281    - Xcode 4.3 support: added packagemaker_path macports.conf setting
282      (jmr in r90058)

287    - Xcode 4.3 support: updated default developer_dir location for 4.3
288      (jmr in r90016)
289
290    - Xcode 4.3 support: use compilers in /usr/bin instead of developer_dir
291      when possible, as the latter has proven to be volatile.
292      (jmr in r90015)
293
294    - Xcode 4.3 support: updated SDK paths for 4.3 (jmr in r90000)
295
296    - Work around broken FTP proxy support in some versions of libcurl

298
299Release 2.0.3 (2011-09-05 by raimue)
300    - Fix a regression introduced in 2.0.2 when fetching with a VCS
301      (#31073, jmr in r83471)
302
303Release 2.0.2 (2011-09-01 by jmr):
304    - Messages recommending running selfupdate will no longer be printed when
305      selfupdate is being run. (#23094, jmr in r83270, r83391)
306
307    - The PortIndex will not be regenerated during selfupdate when base is
308      outdated. This avoids failure to index ports that use features only
309      available in the current version. (#30739, jmr in r83271)
310
311    - Fixed build failures when the TMPDIR environment variable is set to a
312      directory that is not writable by the macports user.
313      (#30749, jmr in r83267)
314

320      (#8431, jmr in r82947)
321
322    - Fixed an issue where a non-universal version of a port could be
323      installed as a dependency as well as the universal version, with
324      unpredictable results, when some ports in the dependency graph needed
325      the universal version but others didn't. (jmr in r82924)
326
327    - Now using a temp dir inside ${prefix} when activating, as /tmp or
328      /var/folders may be on a different volume. (jmr in r82767)
329
330    - Fixed extracting portfile-only archives. (#31033, jmr in r81830)
331
332    - Fixed adduser and addgroup procedures not re-dropping privileges when
333      done. (jmr in r81630)
334
335    - Fixed error activating ports with names containing the string "cpio".
336      (#30532, jmr in r81577)
337
338Release 2.0.1 (2011-08-02 by jmr):
339    - Fixed errors when installing some archives built on a case-sensitive
340      filesystem onto a case-insensitive one. (#30373, jmr in r81562)

346
347    - Added progress output to port image conversion script.
348      (#30347, jmr in r81464)
349
350    - Now doing a better job of avoiding UID conflicts with non-local users
351      when creating the 'macports' user. (#30464, jmr in r81414, r81415) Also
352      improved Tiger compatibility in this area. (jmr in r81454, r81467)
353
354    - Fixed 'port selfupdate' exiting with non-zero status after installing a
355      new version of base. (jmr in r81371)
356
357    - Added --subports to options accepted by 'port info'. (jmr in r81234)
358
359    - Fixed incorrect info sometimes being added to PortIndex entries when
360      using subports. (#30463, jmr in r81361)
361
362    - Fixed descriptions not being shown for default variants. (jmr in r80971)
363
364    - Fixed 'port variants --index'. (jmr in r80969)
365
366Release 2.0.0 (2011-07-22 by jmr):
367
368    - Multiple ports can now be defined in one Portfile using the 'subport'
369      procedure. This reduces code duplication when several ports use very
370      similar code. (jmr in r78062)
371
372    - Privilege dropping is now on by default. The runtime user can be changed
373      when building from source but defaults to 'macports'; this user is
374      created at install time. (jmr in r79025)
375
376    - Fetching from some extremely slow or partially unresponsive servers
377      should now time out as expected. (raimue in r71038)
378
379    - The registry is now "vacuumed" (compacted/defragmented) after
380      uninstalling ports. (jmr in r70608)
381
382    - Downloaded archives are now checked for integrity using digital
383      signatures. Sync and selfupdate can also use a signed tarball. New
384      pubkeys.conf file allows configuring keys to trust.
385      (jmr in r68996, r79093)
386
387    - Added 'actinact' pseudo-portname that expands to installed ports with an
388      active version and at least one inactive version.
389      (#27666, jmr in r79421, based on patch from gmail.com:ww.galen)
390
391    - Added --size option for 'contents' action that makes it print the size
392      of each file. (#27245, jmr in r79365, based on patch from
393      gmail.com:ww.galen)
394
395    - Added 'space' action to show the disk space used by ports' active files.
396      (#27244, jmr in r79349, based on patch from gmail.com:ww.galen)
397
398    - Actions can be abbreviated to an unambiguous prefix of the full name.
399      (#27242, patch from gmail.com:ww.galen committed in r79259)
400
401    - Fixed error when activating ports whose version contains an underscore
402      followed by an integer and a dash. (#28084, jmr in r79167)
403
404    - Deactivating a port that has dependents no longer needs to be forced
405      when the dependents are all inactive. (#29505, jmr in r78086)
406
407    - New option 'add_users' has been added. Setting it will ensure that the
408      listed users are created before all operations that may require them to
409      exist. (#11563, jmr in r78660)
410
411    - 'port info --index' should be much faster and will work with the
412      'current' pseudo-port provided the port has been indexed.
413      (#13673, jmr in r78621)
414
415    - Relocation is explicitly disabled when building pkgs on 10.6, so Apple's
416      Installer won't attempt to overwrite other copies of the same software
417      not installed by MacPorts. (#25174, jmr in r78178)
418
419    - Non-Darwin platforms can once again build base against OpenSSL for
420      checksum support. (#26813, afb in r77865)
421
422    - It is now safe to set svn.post_args, rather than that option being
423      reserved for svn.url. (#27454, jmr in r73825)
424
425    - Variants specified when running 'port mpkg' are now set in the
426      dependencies as well. (#27231, jmr in r73303)
427
428    - Fixed various issues with privilege dropping.
429      (#26899, jmr in r69453 etc.)
430
431    - Trace mode no longer fails on 10.6. (#21582, jmr in r74318, r74369)
432
433    - Ports that create StartupItems (aka launchd plists) should now be
434      installable by unprivileged users. (#10879, jmr in r66700, r75143)
435
436    - Fixed incorrect output from 'port dependents' when using newer SQLite
437      versions. (#27506, patch from gmail.com:mmpestorich committed in r76827)
438
439    - The flat registry format is no longer available. Setting portdbformat to
440      'flat' in macports.conf will result in the sqlite registry being used.
441      (jmr in r77681)
442
443    - Port images are now stored as archives. Archive mode is now effectively
444      always on. Among other benefits, this fixes some bugs with the handling
445      of hard links installed by ports (e.g. #13601).
446
447      Direct mode is no longer available. Existing port image directories, and
448      installed files for direct mode, will be converted to archives when
449      upgrading.
450
451      (#19458, branch by blb, merged by jmr in r77511)
452
453    - master_site_local, patch_site_local, and archive_site_local can be set
454      in macports.conf, with the same effects as the corresponding environment
455      variables. (jmr in r74924)
456
457    - Added 'logfile' action that prints the path to a port's log file.
458      (jmr in r74655)
459
460    - Computing large dependency trees that contain the same port(s) multiple
461      times should be considerably faster. (jmr in r73133)
462
463    - New configure.compiler options: macports-gcc-4.6, macports-llvm-gcc-4.2,
464      macports-clang (jmr in r71487; mfeiri in r72936, r72937)
465
466    - Add '-n' option to reinplace (#26406, ryandesign in r73227)
467
468    - Add new ccache_dir and ccache_size options, default path is
469      ${portdbpath}/build/.ccache and a size of 2 GB.
470      (raimue in r71604, r71606)
471
472    - Add 'system -W path' which changes to the given directory before
473      executing the command.
474      (raimue in r71380, r71389)
475
476    - Add -w to build.cmd and destroot.cmd if using gnumake
477      (raimue in r71370)
478
479    - Add livecheck.ignore_sslcert; setting fetch.ignore_sslcert does no
480      longer apply to livecheck. distcheck now respects fetch.ignore_sslcert.
481      (#17063, raimue in r70975, r70979, r70982)
482
483    - Add SHA256 checksums in addition to MD5, SHA1 and RIPEMD160.
484      (afb in r57888, r57913; snc in r68955)
485
486    - Add @pkgdep lines to archives, with build-time dependencies.
487      (afb in r76919)
488
489Release 1.9.2 (2010-11-07 by jmr):
490
491    - Added more locking to avoid TOCTOU errors when running multiple port(1)
492      instances (#19935, jmr in r70174)
493
494    - Fixed -q not suppressing output from 'port lint' (#25880, jmr in r70163)
495
496    - Added a helpful message when there is a checksum mismatch and the
497      distfile appears to incorrectly be a HTML document (#25128,
498      ryandesign/jmr in r70143)
499
500    - Now checking early on if there are sufficient privileges to install,
501      and failing before building anything if not (#25671, jmr in r70135)
502
503    - Avoided possible failure when the -u option is used when upgrading a
504      port that is marked as being replaced by another (jmr in r69022)
505
506    - Using the platform-specific PortIndex when syncing using a daily tarball
507      (jmr in r68786)
508
509    - Fixed failures when fetch target is run without root privileges and the
510      port is then installed with them (#25418, #25937; jmr in r69334, r70271)
511
512    - Fixed upgrading ports where the new version differs from the old version
513      only in epoch (jmr in r69436)
514
515    - Fixed [un]setrequested when using the flat registry format
516      (#26352, jmr in r69387)
517
518    - Fixed checking for conflicting ports before installation
519      (#25386, jmr in r69105)
520
521    - Now gracefully handling distfiles that use a tag that is not
522      associated with any sites (#25332, jmr in r68965)
523
524    - Fixed running 'port deps' on multiple ports, and changed its output
525      format back to how it was in 1.8 (#25324, jmr in r68950)
526
527    - Fixed premature privilege dropping (#25331, jmr in r68952)
528
529Release 1.9.1 (2010-06-18 by jmr):
530    - Fixed a couple of problems with new 1.9 features when using the flat
531      registry format (jmr in r68910, r68913)
532
533    - Ports using the replaced_by option will once again be deactivated when
534      an upgrade is performed on them (#25270, jmr in r68872)
535
536    - Fixed the possibility of some empty directories being left behind when
537      a port is deactivated (#25268, jmr in r68864)
538
539    - Fixed failure to detect conflicts with files that are not provided by
540      a port before activation starts (#25255, jmr in r68849)
541
542    - Fixed problems with distfile names containing spaces (#25245, #25246;
543      jmr in r68816, r68817)
544
545    - Fixed a problem with uninstall when using direct mode, and started
546      running pre/post activate and deactivate procedures when installing and
547      uninstalling in direct mode, respectively (#11562, jmr in r68697)
548
549    - fixed a crasher that affected Tiger (#25194, jmr in r68675, r68680,
550      r68691)
551
552Release 1.9.0 (2010-06-08 by jmr):
553
554    - It is no longer possible to use include statements in Portfiles
555      (raimue in r68206)
556
557    - Command line options can be abbreviated if unambiguous
558      (raimue in r66837)
559
560    - Added a new variable 'os.subplatform'. When os.platform is darwin, the
561      subplatform is either 'macosx' or 'puredarwin'.
562
563    - 'platform' no longer creates a variant, instead it executes the code in
564      the body immediately if the current platform matches the one specified.
565
566    - Using a Portfile with a modification date in the future now causes an
567      informative error early on, instead of just discarding the workdir at
568      the start of every phase. (#24717, raimue in r65246)
569
570    - Fetching from servers that require a cookie to be set now works.
571      (#24584, raimue in r66785)
572
573    - Fixed an error when everything is deleted from the patchfiles list.
574      (#24178, raimue in r65243)
575
576    - Added 'license:' pseudo-port selector. (#24123, perry in r65033)
577
578    - Added new fetch.type 'bzr'. (#23436, perry in r65096)
579
580    - Added 'rdeps' and 'rdependents' actions, recursive versions of 'deps'
581      and 'dependents' respectively. Also added 'depof:', 'rdepof:',
582      'dependentof:' and 'rdependentof:' pseudo-port selectors, for specifying
583      the ports that are dependencies or dependents of the given port.
584      (#22346, jmr in r65858/r66198)
585
586    - Updated the description of the search action in the port(1) man page.
587      (#23749, jmr in r66670)
588
589    - Dry-run now uses /dev/null as the statefile, which prevents a couple of
590      problems involving locking and variant checks.
591      (#21794, #21962; jmr in r66921)
592
593    - The list of dependencies to be installed is now displayed immediately
594      after computing them. (#21540, jmr in r66321)
595
596    - The quick index is now reloaded after syncing in interactive mode, which
597      prevents errors due to it not matching the updated PortIndex.
598      (#20874, jmr in r66319, refinement of patch from carrel.org:edward)
599
600    - The architectures of dependencies are checked when installing a port. If
601      a dependency does not provide the required arch(s), it is rebuilt with
602      +universal if that is possible and will help, otherwise the install fails
603      and an error message explains why. (#20728, jmr in r65087)
604
605    - New supported_archs option allows ports to indicate which architectures
606      they can be built for. The default values of configure.build_arch and
607      configure.universal_archs change based on this list. Set this to
608      'noarch' if a port installs only architecture-independent files.
609      (#20739, jmr in r64372/r64945)
610
611    - Declaring a variant that requires one or more other variants will now
612      correctly set the required variants, so they can be checked with
613      variant_isset. (#19224, jmr in r66642)
614
615    - 'port outdated' now indicates the reason why a port that appears to have
616      the same version as that in the tree is considered outdated. Possible
617      reasons are that the epoch is higher, or the installed version was built
618      on a different OS version. (#19138, jmr in r64960)
619
620    - Distfile names are now percent-escaped in the download URLs when needed.
621      (#18736, jmr in r66794)
622
623    - buildnicevalue is now applied to configure and destroot commands, and to
624      build commands with unusual names. (#18304, raimue in r65076/r65808)
625
626    - Removed hardcoded /opt/local prefix from the base dmg resources.
627      (#17633, jmr in r66776)
628
629    - Fixed an error that occurred when archive mode was enabled but
630      ${prefix}/var/macports/packages did not exist. (#17579, jmr in r66775)
631
632    - Syncing rsync sources now tries to get a platform-specific version of
633      the PortIndex from the server, and skips this if the local copy is less
634      than a day old. All sync methods now update the PortIndex at the end.
635      (#17157, jmr in r66846/r67207)
636
637    - portindex(1) now skips parsing Portfiles whose modification time is
638      older than the current PortIndex, instead reusing the existing entry.
639      (#16235, jmr in r66845)
640
641    - Added a 'requested' flag to the registry that indicates which ports were
642      installed explicitly (as opposed to as a dependency of something else).
643      This enables the new 'requested', 'unrequested' and 'leaves' pseudo-
644      ports, as well as the --follow-dependencies option for uninstall.
645      The setrequested and unsetrequested actions will set and clear the flag,
646      respectively.
647      (#15260, jmr in r64517, r64663, r65546, r66037, r66200, r66215)
648
649    - The macports1.0 directory is now installed to
650      ${prefix}/share/macports/Tcl rather than /Library/Tcl. A symlink will be
651      installed in the old location if there is nothing there already, so
652      'package require macports' will still work in tclsh.
653      (#12943, jmr in r65055)
654
655    - Added warning and error messags when Xcode is old enough to cause
656      problems or too old to use at all, respectively. (#12794, jmr in r66771)
657
658    - Removed the rather outdated copy of sqlite3 from the source tree, made
659      the sqlite3 directory configurable, and added defaults for non-darwin
660      platforms. (#12231, jmr in r64358/r64363)
661
662    - There is a new 'archivefetch' target which is run before unarchive when
663      archive mode is enabled, and attempts to download the archive from a
664      server. There are currently no sites configured to download from (these
665      are stored in the ports tree like the mirror sites used for fetch), but
666      you can set ARCHIVE_SITE_LOCAL in the environment. Note that there is no
667      integrity checking for archives yet. (#8571, jmr in r64816)
668
669    - Now recording negative variants in the registry, which stops deselected
670      variants from being reactivated on upgrade due to default_variants or
671      variants.conf settings. (#2377, jmr in r64533)
672
673    - Added support for pre- and post- procedures for the activate, deactivate
674      and uninstall targets. This feature requires portdbformat sqlite. There
675      was limited support for pre- and post-activate previously, but the
676      procedures were only run when installing the port, not when activating
677      an inactive version. (#1068, #4228, #18273; jmr in r64638/r64639)
678
679    - Integrated the sqlite-based registry2.0 code. The portdbformat variable
680      in macports.conf can be set to 'sqlite' to enable it. Existing flat
681      receipts will be converted the first time port(1) is run with sufficient
682      privileges. Original code by sfiera, fixed and integrated by jmr in
683      r63398 and following. The new format lacks a number of problems that the
684      old one suffers from, including #13054 (dependencies from old port
685      versions stick around across upgrades) and #14123 (files whose paths
686      differ only in case are left behind when uninstalling).
687
688    - Fixed file list in +CONTENTS file in archives. (#21864, jmr in r59882)
689
690    - Fixed a few issues reported with building MacPorts on Linux. (#22716)
691
692    - Upgrade will now always choose the port that is active when following
693      dependencies that could be satisfied by more than one port and more than
694      one of these is installed, instead of choosing the one actually named in
695      the depspec. (#23921, jmr in r60883)
696
697    - Extracting from a disk image ("use_dmg yes") no longer fails when there
698      is a space in $worksrcdir. (#23456, raimue in r67089)
699
700    - Added a configure.sdkroot option which can be used to build against a
701      Mac OS X SDK. It is empty by default unless the value of
702      macosx_deployment_target is not the current OS version, or the universal
703      variant is set and the current platform is PowerPC Tiger. It is also
704      possible to set macosx_deployment_target globally in macports.conf now,
705      but this is unsupported. (#19875, jmr in r66924)
706
707    - Add "fs-traverse -tails" which only returns the part following the
708      specified directory (#21873, raimue in r65785)
709
710    - Allow gcc45 port to be used in configure.compiler (ryandesign in r62223)
711
712    - svn checkouts now use peg revisions instead of operative revisions,
713      so they'll continue to work if a repository gets reorganized
714      (#20777, ryandesign in r60573)
715
716    - Print the location of the log file when a target fails (jmr in r60769)
717
718    - Use CommonCrypto/CommonDigest instead of OpenSSL libcrypto.
719      (toby in r58131, jberry in r59715)
720
721    - New "patch.type gnu" for GNU patch, similar to "build.type gnu"
722      for GNU make. Only makes a difference for BSD patch and BSD make.
723      (afb in r58020)
724
725    - Updated the FreeBSD package (ObjC/Foundation is now optional).
726      (afb in r57889)
727
728    - Don't use "make -j1" for build.jobs=1, but prefer "make" instead.
729      (afb in r57998)
730
731    - Add new "use_xz yes" port option to allow distfiles in xz format.
732      (afb in r57827)
733
734    - Archive mode now uses build_arch in archive names rather than os.arch.
735      (snc in r58977)
736
737    - Add new log command and keeping of debug output for easy access
738      after port has run (GSoC 2009 logging project by enl, merged in r60372)
739
740    - Some of the build_arch flags now appear in LDFLAGS as well, fixing
741      several ports when building for a different architecture (jeremyhu in
742      r60662, jmr in r60680)
743
744    - Fixed 'merge' proc for paths with spaces, and for symlinks on Snow
745      Leopard, and added an error message for when 'merge' is not called
746      correctly (#21852, ryandesign in r58776, r58777, r58778)
747
748Release 1.8.2 (2010-01-01 by jmr):
749
750    - Fixed 'port load' for non-root installations (#21713, jmr in r60774)
751
752    - Fixed a bug that could cause port to hit the open file limit
753      (#22959, jmr in r61770)
754
755    - Fixed an error when installing from source or selfupdating on Tiger with
756      an svn-based ports tree (#20760, jmr in r61302)
757
758    - Fixed an error when selfupdating as root with a prefix that is not owned
759      by root (#21010, jmr in r60798)
760
761    - Stopped uninstall from failing when files in the port image have already
762      been deleted (#22001, jmr in r59318, r59654)
763
764    - Stopped printing command output multiple times on failure (#21084,
765      jmr in r60770)
766
767    - Started showing bug reporting instructions on failure (jmr in r60770)
768
769    - Fixed a bug where 'port dmg' could create too small an image and run out
770      of space (#22404, jmr in r60260)
771
772    - Fixed a bug where reinplace could fail when running port without root
773      privileges (#20896, jmr in r59597)
774
775    - Started setting our own umask since Snow Leopard makes us inherit
776      the user's even when using sudo (#21389, jmr in r59585)
777
778Release 1.8.1 (2009-09-28 by jmr):
779
780    - Installer error messages now display properly even from the Snow Leopard
781      MacPorts dmg. (jmr in r56448)
782
783    - 'fetch.type svn' no longer requires the installation of the subversion
784      port as of Snow Leopard. (toby in r56160; raimue in r56162)
785
786    - Updated manpages and 'port help' output (ryandesign in r56472, r56473,
787      r56474; blb in r56666, r57048, r57131)
788
789    - Fixed syncing using the daily tarball. (#21034, toby in r56889)
790
791    - Fixed 'port load' (#21128, raimue in r57055)
792
793    - Improved error message when an expression on the command line does not
794      match any ports (jmr in r57026)
795
796    - Stopped recording the completion of the install phase in the
797      statefile, which led to errors if the port was uninstalled but the work
798      dir was not cleaned, and the port was then installed again.
799      (jmr/raimue in r57801, 57820)
800
801Release 1.8.0 (2009-08-28 by jmr):
802    - There is now a 'build_arch' variable, available in portfiles and
803      configurable in macports.conf, which sets the CPU architecture that
804      ports should be compiled for (when not building universal). Its default
805      is the same as that of the Apple-supplied /usr/bin/gcc.
806      (#19874, jmr in r53217,r53386,r53420,r53494,r53860,r54236)
807
808    - MacPorts base now works on and has appropriate default settings for
809      Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. (#19874, toby/mww/jkh in r38271,r40060,
810      r40836,r43976,r52397)
811     
812    - MacPorts now requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later. (Panther is not
813      just "unsupported", it really won't work.)
814
815    - The universal_sysroot and universal_target keys have been removed from
816      macports.conf. These settings are now handled automatically.
817      (toby in r52324)
818
819    - Added a 'replaced_by' portfile option. This causes upgrade to deactivate
820      the current port and install the port specified by this option. This
821      also allows ports to be renamed. Upgrade accepts a --no-replace option
822      which disables this behaviour. (#20157, jmr in r54378)
823
824    - The upgrade action now accepts --force and --enforce-variants options.
825      The former causes ports to be rebuilt even if they are not outdated, and
826      the global -f option no longer has this effect (it had too many effects
827      already). The latter causes ports to be rebuilt if the requested
828      variants do not match those installed (even if they are not outdated).
829      (#20156, jmr in r54376)
830
831    - Dependencies can be satisfied by ports that are installed but not
832      available in the ports tree (useful for testing uncommitted ports).
833      (jmr in r52075, r52160)
834
835    - Ports that are installed but not available in the ports tree no longer
836      cause an error when running commands like 'port clean installed'. They
837      are skipped and a warning is printed. (#19253, jmr in r50865)
838
839    - Selfupdate no longer disables readline support unless readline is found
840      in /usr/local, which has historically caused failures.
841      (#19035, jmr in r50868)
842
843    - Uninstalling a port that is not installed now produces an informational
844      message rather than an error. (#18984, jmr in r53709)
845
846    - Added a 'conflicts' portfile option. Conflicting ports will be detected
847      during dependency calculation. (#18794, blb/jmr in r51525)
848
849    - 'port selfupdate' now explicitly states precisely what it does. (#18512)
850
851    - Operating system and architecture information is now shown in debug
852      output. (#18435, raimue in r46669)
853
854    - Fixed a bug that could break some symlinks to man pages. (#18302)
855
856    - Switched to a more efficient algorithm for looking up port information
857      in the index, which makes many operations faster.
858      (#18259, jmr/blb in r47110)
859
860    - MacPorts base now tries to avoid using commands that come from ports, so
861      that a broken port can't break the base code. (#18149)
862
863    - Deleting all the contents of a portfile option no longer unsets the
864      option entirely. (#17865, toby in r44901)
865
866    - Removed the code that upgrades from the old DarwinPorts filesystem
867      layout. Trying to upgrade to 1.8.0+ from a version older than 1.5.0 will
868      produce an error message saying you need to install 1.7.1 first.
869      (#17619, jmr in r53260)
870
871    - port(1) now reports its version as dotted-decimal rather than floating
872      point. (#17420)
873
874    - Dependencies are now always obtained by parsing the Portfile and not
875      from the PortIndex, since the latter can't provide expanded variables
876      like $prefix which may be used in path: depspecs. (#17182)
877
878    - Newline characters in long_description can no longer cause receipt
879      corruption. (#16619, blb in r50663)
880
881    - Now unlocking the filemap when it is not in use. This allows e.g.
882      'port contents' to be run while another port instance is performing
883      installs. Note that running more than one simultaneous port instance
884      that will modify the registry can easily fail, though hopefully
885      without corrupting anything. (#16246, jmr in r51133)
886
887    - Removed some irrelevant debug output that was being printed when a port
888      failed. (#16203, jmr in r53706)
889
890    - Added new depends_fetch and depends_extract options, for dependencies
891      that are needed to fetch or extract the port, respectively.
892      (#15161, jmr in r51780)
893
894    - Packages (including the one for MacPorts base) now correctly indicate
895      that they can only be installed on the root volume.
896      (#14809, jmr in r53250)
897
898    - Using an alternative fetch or extract type now adds appropriate
899      dependencies automatically, e.g. 'use_zip yes' adds a dep on unzip, and
900      'fetch.type svn' adds a dep on subversion. (#13981, jmr in r43782)
901
902    - port(1) should now exit with an appropriate status code when an error is
903      encountered. Use the -p option to continue despite errors.
904      (#13918, jmr in r53704)
905
906    - Proxy information can now be obtained from System Preferences and from
907      macports.conf. The older method using environment variables no longer
908      works out of the box on Leopard due to changes that Apple made to the
909      default /etc/sudoers. (#13158, blb in r47194)
910
911    - Improved handling of malformed variant definitions.
912      (#12596, jmr in r50719, r50721)
913
914    - Cope a little better with missing receipt files. (#19540, jmr in r51138)
915
916    - Fixed a major memory leak in the filemap code.
917      (#12022, pguyot in r51419)
918
919    - Improved the logic for determining whether phases can be skipped. This
920      fixes the specific problems of being unable to build packages of ports
921      that are installed, port not running specific phases (e.g. build)
922      when told to if the port is installed, and inactive dependencies being
923      rebuilt instead of simply activated. (#10881, #16260, jmr in r50490)
924
925    - When archive mode is enabled, ports will no longer be rebuilt if an
926      archive is available. (#10785, jmr in r50416)
927
928    - Activating a port will now first deactivate any other version of the
929      same port that is already active. (#10571, jmr in r53711)
930
931    - Added a 'license' portfile option, which is displayed in 'port info'
932      output. (#7493, jmr in r50801)
933
934    - port lint recognizes new top-level category php (#19329, ryandesign)
935
936    - Do not print header lines when the quiet option -q is set
937      (raimue in r48558)
938
939    - svn.tag is deprecated, use svn.revision instead (raimue in r48222-48223)
940
941    - port -i option has been removed (blb in r48218)
942
943    - ui_warn logs to stderr instead of stdout (raimue in r48217)
944
945    - Remove --pretend option for port selfupdate, use global dry-run option
946      instead (raimue in r48125)
947
948    - port(1) option -y for dry-run (#11892, gwhitney/jmr in r43726)
949
950    - New pseudo-port 'obsolete' to identify ports which are installed but no
951      longer in the PortIndex (raimue in r47253)
952
953    - MacPorts can now perform fetch, extract, patch, configure and build in a
954      user rather than system owned location. By default, this is
955      ~/.macports/opt. This allows MacPorts to do all but the install of the
956      port without root privileges. (gsoc08-privileges)
957
958    - MacPorts can now automatically drop privileges so as to avoid running as
959      root whenever possible. To enable this, pass the desired user to run as
960      to configure with the --with-macports-user option. (gsoc08-privileges)
961
962    - The Portfile format has a number of new boolean attributes to indicate
963      when an action should or should not be run with root privileges:
964      'patch.asroot', 'build.asroot', 'configure.asroot', 'destroot.asroot',
965      and 'install.asroot'. The default for all is "no". If the prefix folder
966      (by default /opt/local) is not writable, MacPorts will attempt to
967      elevate privileges to root for the install phase. (gsoc08-privileges)
968
969    - A "make group" command has been added to the Makefile and a
970      "--with-shared-directory" switch to the configure script. Running "make
971      group" will create a macports group. "--with-shared-directory" will let
972      let the group specified by "--with-install-group" have full read write
973      access to the /opt/local hierarchy. This will allow users who are
974      members of the new macports group to have full write permissions to
975      /opt/local and its subfolders, and hence to install ports which only
976      affect that hierarchy without requiring root privileges.
977      (gsoc08-privileges)
978
979    - A switch called "--with-no-root-privileges" has been added for use by
980      user installing MacPorts for their own use only. An example configure
981      command would be "./configure
982      --prefix=/Users/{your-user-name-here}/.macports/opt
983      --with-no-root-privileges" (gsoc08-privileges)
984
985    - Add several new options to port search, looks in name and description by
986      default (#15434, raimue)
987
988    - Add xpkg package type, xar-based format with XML. (afb)
989
990    - Split portpkg creation out from portsubmit phase. (afb)
991
992    - Make dependencies displayed in port info respect variants
993      specified in variants.conf; collapse port deps to be an alias
994      for port info with appropriate flags. Note this changes output
995      format of port deps somewhat.  (#11891, gwhitney in r44340)
996
997    - Make dependencies in port upgrade respect variants as specified
998      (in order of precedence) on command line, latest installed
999      version, or variants.conf .  (#8221, gwhitney in r44362)
1000
1001    - Add select action, which integrates *_select tools into port.
1002      (#17477, perry)
1003
1004    - The variants action additionally shows default variants, conflicting
1005      variants and variants' dependencies. (#14178, #15628, perry)
1006
1007    - Implicit variants (e.g., darwin) can no longer be explicitly
1008      set/unset. (#12563, perry in r46938, jmr in r53371)
1009
1010Release 1.7.1 (2009-03-28 by raimue):
1011    - Trailing slashes are stripped from the prefix passed to configure, which
1012      prevents incorrect mtree violation warnings. (#13789)
1013
1014    - Fix freshmeat-based livecheck (#18887)
1015
1016    - Fix issue on direct-mode installs where checking for installed ports
1017      wasn't properly looking (it only matched for revision 0 and no
1018      variants) (#17762)
1019
1020    - Add new "use_7z yes" port option to allow distfiles in 7z format
1021      (#18521, ryandesign)
1022
1023    - port lint no longer requires variable master_sites if the port has no
1024      distfiles (#18479, ryandesign)
1025
1026    - Upgrade will no longer accept ports that are not installed (but it still
1027      installs new ports as dependencies if needed). In particular, this means
1028      that "port upgrade all" will no longer proceed to install every
1029      available port. (jmr in r46052)
1030
1031    - Add mkdtemp Tcl command to create temporary directories. (#17181, perry)
1032
1033    - Add 'apple-gcc-4.2' option to configure.compiler (#18426, ryandesign)
1034
1035    - Create ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} in destroot
1036      automatically (r45614, raimue)
1037
1038    - Make the postflight procedure a bit smarter about which login files
1039      to update for bash and tcsh (#17588)
1040
1041    - Add error messages to package installers when the wrong OS package
1042      is being installed (#13141)
1043
1044Release 1.7.0 (2008-12-13 by blb):
1045    - Global variant descriptions using variant_descriptions.conf in the new
1046      resources directory in the ports tree (#14482, raimue)
1047
1048    - Move port resources into the ports tree (#14553, raimue and blb)
1049
1050    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
1051
1052    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
1053
1054    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
1055
1056    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
1057      --nitpick is used (#14799)
1058
1059    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
1060
1061    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
1062
1063    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
1064      phases (#11897)
1065
1066    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
1067      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
1068
1069    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
1070      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
1071      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
1072      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
1073
1074    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
1075      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
1076      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
1077      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
1078      in r38683)
1079
1080    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
1081
1082    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
1083      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
1084      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
1085
1086    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
1087      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
1088      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
1089      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, r37621)
1090
1091    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
1092      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
1093      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
1094      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
1095
1096    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
1097      (#15577, afb in r37501)
1098
1099    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
1100
1101    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
1102      running (raimue)
1103
1104    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
1105      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
1106      jmr in r37217, r37255)
1107
1108    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
1109      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
1110      r37121)
1111
1112    - Stopped 'port -R upgrade' from processing more ports than it should, and
1113      from processing ports multiple times. (#10827, jmr in r37046)
1114
1115    - Don't include build.nice and build.jobs in destroot.cmd (#15295)
1116
1117    - The default universal variant is no longer added when we know it won't
1118      work. (#12170, jmr in r36764)
1119
1120    - During upgrade, if the latest installed version of a port is not active,
1121      the currently active version (if any) is now deactivated before trying
1122      to activate the latest version. (#12013, jmr in r36762)
1123
1124    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is
1125      inactive and there is at least one other version of the same port
1126      installed (#11501, jmr in r36747)
1127
1128    - Duplicate entries can no longer build up in the dependency map (#8763,
1129      jmr in r36745)
1130
1131    - In image mode, dependencies are no longer treated as being satisfied
1132      when the satisfying port is not active (#7361, jmr in r36735)
1133
1134    - Fixed a bug where upgrade could create too many nested subdirectories
1135      in distpath, archive.destpath and unarchive.srcpath (#11971, jmr in
1136      r36679, r36687, r36688)
1137
1138    - Declaring a dependency on a nonexistent port now always causes an error
1139      (#10768, jmr in r36648)
1140
1141    - Explicitly use unsetenv(3) on all environment variables (#13930, #16010,
1142      #16233)
1143
1144    - Make the included tclthread compile on Leopard if configured (#13495)
1145
1146    - Allow distfiles to be disk images with "use_dmg yes" port option (#13509,
1147      ryandesign in r36708)
1148
1149    - ruby.setup now takes a type 'fetch' to just fetch/extract (eridius in r35773)
1150
1151    - Fetch now prefers mirrors with lower ping times (#14891, jmr in r35748,
1152      r35806, r35808)
1153
1154    - Fetching of daily snapshot tarballs of the ports tree as an alternative to rsync
1155      (raimue in r35647, r35648)
1156
1157    - port uninstall now takes --follow-dependents to uninstall all dependents
1158      (#14637, eridius/raimue in r34977, r35042, r36160)
1159
1160    - New fetch.type git (#14232, eridius in r34875)
1161
1162    - fixed "port mdmg" getting block size wrong for the disk image (#13968, afb in r34844)
1163
1164    - always set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, to avoid bugs with older glibtool (afb in r34541)
1165
1166    - port lint now checks all dependencies so that the ports actually exist (#14380)
1167
1168    - added target_state to avoid the need for privileges for lint/livecheck (#13458)
1169
1170    - Overhauled output for port info/deps/dependents/search (raimue in
1171      r34354, r34371, r34391, r34395, r34402, r34420)
1172
1173    - Revert the default +universal MDT/SDK to 10.4/10.4u on Tiger and 10.5/10.5 on Leopard
1174
1175    - port lint shouldn't require variable master_sites for fetch.type != standard (#14377)
1176
1177    - Add "tcldoc" documentation comments and "tcldox" Doxyfile for doxygen (#12048)
1178
1179    - Add --pretend and --nosync flags to selfupdate (raimue in r33938, r33939,
1180      r33940, r33941)
1181
1182    - Work around autoconf X11 detection bugs on darwin (afb in r33717)
1183
1184    - Fix bugs with X11 lib detection on Leopard (#14089, afb in r33716)
1185
1186    - Add configure.{optflags,m32,m64,march,mtune} (afb in r33503, r33599)
1187
1188    - Add applications_dir and frameworks_dir configuration (r33499, r33722)
1189
1190    - Remove some hardcoded paths (such as /usr/X11R6, /usr/bin/install) (afb in r33501, r33619, r33620)
1191
1192    - Add configure.{universal_target,universal_sysroot,universal_archs} (afb in r33478).
1193
1194    - Change default +universal platform back to: 10.4/10.4u.sdk/i386 ppc (r33087, r33107).
1195
1196    - Add `port platform` info action that outputs current platform (#12302, afb in r32724).
1197
1198    - Enable 64 bit environment, ppc64 x86_64, for all +universal builds (mww in r32194).
1199
1200    - Add 'merge' function for merging multiple (single arch) destroots into one (universal)
1201      destroot (mww in r31954).
1202
1203    - If checksum is mismatched, and in verbose mode, present a corrected pre-fabricated checksum statement
1204      to make it easy to update a port (jberry in r32441).
1205
1206    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_prefix"" runtime error on Panther
1207      (eridius in r32525).
1208
1209    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_channels"" runtime error on Panther
1210      (eridius in r32514).
1211
1212    - "port lint" now recognizes non-canonical modelines (afb in r32480).
1213
1214    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
1215
1216    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
1217      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_version (jmpp in r32353).
1218
1219    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents
1220      (jmpp in r32336).
1221
1222    - Fixed a Panther build failure due to missing sqlite headers (jmpp in r32212).
1223
1224    - Fixed a build failure by passing the base/src/cregistry/cregistry.a archive through ranlib (jmpp in r32105).
1225
1226
1227Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
1228
1229    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
1230      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
1231      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
1232      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
1233
1234    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
1235      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
1236
1237    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
1238
1239    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
1240      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
1241
1242    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
1243      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
1244      (#10651, jberry in r31139, r31140).
1245
1246    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
1247      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
1248      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
1249      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).
1250
1251    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
1252
1253    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
1254      multiple files (mww in r31028)
1255
1256    - add optional configure.pipe output (afb in r29604 & r30824)
1257
1258    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)
1259
1260    - add configure.[awk|bison|pkg_config|pkg_config_path] (r30761)
1261
1262    - Auto-mode for number of parallel build threads (if number of jobs is set to "0") (r30739)
1263
1264    - Add option use_parallel_build [yes|no] to declare if a port can be built in parallel (r30714).
1265
1266    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).
1267
1268    - Display warnings when using old versions of Mac OS X and Xcode Tools
1269      (#12794, afb in r30338 & r30477)
1270
1271    - Remove configure.macosx_deployment_target, add global macosx_deployment_target
1272      (eridius in r30396).
1273
1274    - add support for LZMA compression, for making .tlz archives (afb in r30307)
1275
1276    - add configure.[perl|python|ruby] for interpreters, .install for avoiding breakage
1277      due to coreutils, .libs
1278
1279    - added startupitem.netchange boolean flag (#12931, N_Ox in r30086).
1280
1281    - added generic GNU livecheck (N_Ox in r29812).
1282
1283    - fixed bug where all .mpkg packages were missing their welcome page (afb in r29517)
1284
1285    - better defaults for implicit ui_channels behaviour (eridius in r29498).
1286
1287    - prevent creating PKG packages with /etc or /var or /tmp (#2102, afb in r29445)
1288
1289    - add optional configure.ccache and configure.distcc filters (#5390, afb in r29438)
1290
1291    - Explicitly sort fs-traverse so it behaves predictably on Linux systems
1292      (#12622, eridius in r29412).
1293
1294    - add configure.objc/objcflags for Objective-C
1295
1296    - add optional build.nice (0) and build.jobs (1) modifiers (afb in r28634 & r28673)
1297
1298    - make tclobjc1.0 compile with GNUstep and NXConstantString class (afb in r28668)
1299
1300    - fix bsdmake/gnumake defaults for FreeBSD and Linux platforms (afb in r28660)
1301
1302    - port lint command, for Portfile verification (#463, afb in r28170)
1303
1304    - add configure.macosx_deployment_target for configure flags
1305
1306    - add configure.javac/classpath for Java
1307
1308    - add configure.fflags/fcflags/f90flags for Fortran flags
1309
1310    - Mark "python" group code as deprecated
1311
1312    - Add group code for Python 3.0
1313
1314    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
1315
1316    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
1317      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
1318
1319    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
1320
1321    - Chris Pickel's GSoC2007 work: registry2.0 & cregistry (mainly r27518 & r27520)
1322
1323    - Eugene Pimenov's GSoC2007 work: Trace lib on unix sockets (r26682).
1324
1325    - Elias Pipping's GSoC2007 work: merge.rb on his personal /users/pipping svn dir.
1326
1327
1328Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
1329
1330    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
1331      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
1332      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
1333
1334
1335Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
1336
1337    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
1338      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
1339
1340    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
1341      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
1342
1343    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
1344
1345    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
1346      (mww in r27199).
1347
1348    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
1349
1350    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
1351
1352    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
1353
1354    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
1355      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
1356
1357    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
1358
1359    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
1360
1361    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
1362
1363
1364Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
1365
1366    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
1367      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
1368      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
1369      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
1370      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
1371
1372    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
1373
1374    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
1375
1376    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
1377      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
1378      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
1379      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
1380      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
1381
1382    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
1383
1384    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
1385      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
1386
1387    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
1388
1389    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
1390      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
1391
1392    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
1393      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
1394      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
1395      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
1396      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
1397      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
1398
1399    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
1400
1401    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
1402
1403    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
1404
1405    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
1406      to detect problems between required and negated variants
1407      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
1408
1409    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
1410      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
1411      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
1412      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
1413
1414    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
1415      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
1416
1417    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
1418      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
1419      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
1420
1421    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
1422      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
1423         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
1424         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
1425      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
1426      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
1427      (jberry r25795).
1428
1429    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
1430
1431    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
1432      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
1433      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
1434
1435    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
1436      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
1437
1438    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
1439      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
1440
1441    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
1442      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
1443      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
1444      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
1445      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
1446      (boeyms in r25310)
1447
1448Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
1449
1450    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
1451
1452Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
1453
1454    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
1455
1456    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
1457      This allows information about variants to be displayed (e.g. dependencies).
1458      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
1459      (eridius r25255).
1460
1461    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
1462
1463    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
1464      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
1465      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
1466
1467    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
1468      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
1469
1470    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
1471      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
1472      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
1473      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
1474      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
1475      (boeyms r25110)
1476
1477    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
1478      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
1479      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
1480      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
1481
1482    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
1483
1484    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
1485      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
1486
1487    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
1488      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
1489
1490    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
1491
1492    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
1493      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
1494
1495    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
1496      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
1497      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
1498      (jberry r25146)
1499
1500    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
1501         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
1502         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
1503         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
1504           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
1505           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
1506
1507        Example:
1508
1509            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
1510                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
1511            }
1512
1513        (jberry r25147)
1514
1515    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
1516      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
1517
1518
1519Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
1520
1521    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
1522      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
1523      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
1524      it differently.
1525
1526    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
1527      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
1528      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
1529      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
1530      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
1531
1532    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
1533      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
1534      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
1535
1536    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
1537
1538    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
1539
1540    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
1541      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
1542
1543    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
1544
1545    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
1546
1547    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
1548      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
1549      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
1550
1551    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
1552      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
1553
1554    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
1555      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
1556
1557    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
1558      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
1559
1560    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
1561
1562    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
1563      (pguyot r24273).
1564
1565    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
1566      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
1567      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
1568
1569    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
1570      This work is in progress. (jberry)
1571       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
1572       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
1573         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
1574
1575    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
1576      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
1577
1578    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
1579      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
1580
1581    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
1582      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
1583
1584    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
1585
1586    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
1587
1588Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
1589
1590    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
1591      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
1592      (jberry r24151).
1593
1594    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
1595      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
1596      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
1597      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
1598      (pipping r24148).
1599
1600Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
1601
1602    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
1603      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
1604
1605    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
1606      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
1607
1608    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
1609      for submitter information.
1610      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
1611        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
1612        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
1613            - PORTSRC
1614            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
1615            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
1616          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
1617       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
1618
1619    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
1620      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
1621
1622    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
1623      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
1624      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
1625      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1626
1627    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1628
1629    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
1630      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
1631
1632Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
1633
1634    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
1635      (pipping in r23343).
1636
1637    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
1638      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
1639
1640    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
1641      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
1642      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
1643
1644    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
1645      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
1646
1647    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
1648      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
1649      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
1650
1651    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
1652
1653    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
1654      r22313).
1655
1656    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
1657      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
1658      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
1659      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
1660
1661    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
1662      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
1663
1664    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
1665      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
1666
1667    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
1668      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
1669
1670    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
1671      r23967)
1672
1673
1674Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
1675
1676    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
1677      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
1678
1679    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
1680
1681    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
1682      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
1683
1684    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
1685
1686    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
1687
1688    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
1689      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
1690
1691    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
1692
1693    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
1694
1695    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
1696      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
1697
1698    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
1699      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
1700
1701    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
1702      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
1703      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
1704
1705    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
1706
1707    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
1708      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
1709
1710    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
1711      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
1712
1713    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
1714      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
1715
1716    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
1717
1718    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
1719
1720    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
1721      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
1722
1723    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
1724
1725    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
1726
1727    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
1728
1729    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
1730      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
1731
1732    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
1733      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
1734
1735    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
1736
1737    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
1738
1739
1740Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
1741
1742    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
1743      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
1744
1745    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
1746
1747    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
1748      code. (pguyot)
1749
1750    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
1751      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
1752
1753    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
1754      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
1755
1756    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
1757      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
1758      /usr/local. (pguyot)
1759
1760    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
1761
1762    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
1763      (josh_root, blb)
1764
1765    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
1766      are modified. (pguyot)
1767
1768    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
1769      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1770
1771    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
1772      variable. (pguyot)
1773
1774    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
1775      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
1776      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
1777
1778Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
1779
1780    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
1781
1782    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
1783      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
1784
1785    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
1786      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
1787      SVN. (pguyot)
1788
1789    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
1790      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
1791
1792    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
1793      (jberry)
1794
1795    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
1796      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
1797
1798    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
1799
1800    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
1801
1802    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1803
1804    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
1805       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
1806       * mention interactive and batch modes
1807       * document extensions to info command.
1808
1809    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
1810
1811    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
1812      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
1813      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
1814
1815Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
1816
1817    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
1818      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
1819      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
1820
1821    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
1822      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
1823
1824    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
1825      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
1826
1827    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
1828
1829    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
1830
1831    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
1832      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
1833
1834    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
1835      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
1836
1837    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
1838
1839    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
1840      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
1841
1842    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
1843
1844    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
1845      (jberry)
1846
1847    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
1848      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
1849      (landonf)
1850
1851    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
1852      installed. (jmpp)
1853
1854    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
1855      project path. (pguyot)
1856
1857    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
1858      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
1859
1860    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
1861      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
1862
1863    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
1864      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
1865
1866    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
1867      (olegb)
1868
1869    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
1870      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
1871
1872    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
1873      iterating). (jberry)
1874
1875    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
1876      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
1877      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
1878
1879    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
1880
1881    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
1882      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
1883      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
1884      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
1885      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
1886      shoot yourself. (jberry)
1887
1888    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
1889      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
1890
1891    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
1892      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
1893
1894    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
1895
1896    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
1897      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
1898        several bug fixes.
1899      * cleaned up the code.
1900      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
1901        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
1902        reported creations).
1903      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
1904        overwritten.
1905
1906    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
1907
1908    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
1909      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
1910      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
1911
1912        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
1913          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
1914          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
1915
1916        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
1917          input following any commands given as arguments.
1918
1919        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
1920          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
1921          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
1922            #!/usr/bin/env portf
1923
1924        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
1925
1926        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
1927
1928        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
1929          interactive/batch mode.
1930
1931        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
1932
1933        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
1934          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
1935          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
1936
1937    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
1938      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
1939      (jberry).
1940
1941    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
1942      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
1943
1944    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
1945      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
1946      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
1947
1948    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
1949      (pguyot)
1950
1951    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
1952
1953    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
1954      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
1955      (jberry)
1956
1957    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
1958      MacOS X. (mww)
1959
1960    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
1961      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
1962      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
1963      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
1964      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
1965      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
1966      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
1967      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
1968      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
1969      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
1970      (jberry) 2006-02-16
1971
1972Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
1973
1974    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
1975      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
1976      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
1977      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
1978      fat, configure as follows:
1979        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
1980                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
1981
1982    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
1983      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
1984      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
1985
1986Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
1987
1988    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
1989      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
1990      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
1991        port uninstall vim @1.0
1992      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
1993      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
1994
1995    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
1996      destroot, too. (mww)
1997
1998    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
1999      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
2000
2001    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
2002      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
2003      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
2004
2005    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
2006      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
2007      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
2008
2009    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
2010      groups of ports.
2011      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
2012      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
2013
2014      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
2015        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
2016
2017      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
2018      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
2019      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
2020      The selectors are:
2021      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
2022      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
2023      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
2024
2025    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
2026      ports or groups of ports.
2027      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
2028
2029    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
2030      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
2031      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
2032      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
2033
2034    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
2035      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
2036
2037    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
2038      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
2039      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
2040
2041    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
2042      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
2043      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
2044      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
2045      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
2046      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
2047
2048    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
2049      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
2050      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
2051
2052    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
2053      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
2054
2055    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
2056      ones considered harmful (blb)
2057
2058    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
2059      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
2060
2061    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
2062      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
2063
2064    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
2065        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
2066          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
2067        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
2068          reports (pguyot)
2069        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
2070
2071    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
2072      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
2073
2074    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
2075
2076    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
2077      echo (the expanded arguments),
2078      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
2079      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
2080      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
2081      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
2082      (jberry)
2083
2084    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
2085      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
2086      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
2087      in a similar fashion (jberry)
