6Release 2.4 (unreleased)
7    - Replaced the strings previously printed by "port help" with much more
8      detailed and current manpages written using asciidoc that open
9      automatically. Added documentation for almost all commands currently
10      implemented by MacPorts.
11      (raimue in branch new-help-system, merge in r123002,
12       manpages written by cal, jmr, raimue, ionic, jeremyhu,
13       #44530, #15467)
14
15    - Added macports_version to the Portfile execution context, to allow
16      checking the current MacPorts version in Portfiles.
17      (cal in r134511)
18
19    - Added "setunrequested" alias for "unsetrequested" command.
20      (ionic in r130217)
21
22    - Added interactive questions for various use cases like 'install',
23      'activate', 'uninstall --follow-dependencies'. Also added global
24      flag '-N' to provide non-interactive invocations.
25      (shasha in branch gsoc14-interactive, merge in r124243)
26
27    - Display notes for installed or updated ports at the end of the
28      installation to prevent them from getting lost in the scrolling output.
29      (#24507, cal in r118304, patch by snc)
30
31    - Handle SIGTERM and SIGINT (^C) in MacPorts to prevent inconsistencies in
32      the registry database when MacPorts is aborted during a critical
33      operation.
34      (cal in r118297 and r118298)
35
36    - Remove "support" for rpm and deb packages in MacPorts, leaving pkg/mpkg.
37      (afb in r123004)
38
39    - Remove deprecated rpm-vercomp function, ports should use vercmp instead.
40      (afb in r123005)
41
42Release 2.3.4 (2015-10-01 by jmr)
43    - Installation will now abort when an archive is found on a server but
44      downloading it fails, rather than trying to build from source without
45      the correct dependencies (jmr in r138461)
46
47    - Re-added macports-llvm-gcc-4.2 and apple-gcc-4.2 to the compiler
48      fallback list on Yosemite now that they work (jmr in r136965)
49
50    - Changed the existsuser and existsgroup procs to return -1 on failure
51      instead of 0, since 0 is root's uid (#45737, cal in r135851)
52
53    - The MacPorts version is now available to Portfiles through a proc called
54      macports_version (cal in r134511)
55
56    - Fix failure to activate ports that install files with backslashes in
57      their names (#47283, cal in r134501, r134502)
58
59Release 2.3.3 (2014-11-21 by jmr)
60    - Fix database performance regressions with SQLite 3.8 by specifying a

62
63Release 2.3.2 (2014-10-17 by jmr)
64    - Fix a crash in trace mode when software calls posix_spawn(2) with NULL
65      as envp (which isn't a legal thing to do from what I understand, but
66      there's software that does it) (#45318, cal in r126475)
67
68    - Tune down the noise while using trace mode; in the default verbosity
69      setting, only report files that actually exist and were hidden.
70      (cal in r124150, r124216)
71
72    - Fix bugs in trace mode that caused it to (1) not ignore /usr/local as
73      it should and (2) fail with certain lengths of $prefix.
74      (cal in r124145, r124146)
75

92    - Added quoting to PATH and MANPATH variables set by the installer, to
93      accomodate paths containing spaces (#43798, jmr in r121311)
94
95    - Update for automatic dependencies for fetch.type git, needed due to the
96      git-core port being renamed to git (#44052, ciserlohn in r120928)
97
98    - Fixed failure to sync using daily tarball (#43821, cal in r120382)
99
100Release 2.3 (2014-05-24 by jmr)

109    - Attempt to use HTTP pipelining when downloading. (cal in r117022)
110
111    - Allow ports to select a specific version of the Mac OS X SDK
112      for builds. (larryv in r116437)
113
114    - Check for Command Line Tools presence and Xcode license agreement
115      acceptance and print helpful warnings if they aren't detected. (cal in
116      r115900)
117
118    - Support using .tar.lz archives using use_lzip (mww in r114652)
119
120    - Enhance the "move" Portfile builtin to support case-only renames
121      on case-insensitive filesystems. (#41679, ryandesign in r114289)
122
123    - Fix a regression that caused problems with sandboxing when the MacPorts
124      prefix contained a symlink. (#39850, cal in r113704)
125
126    - Disable Spotlight indexing on build directories, distfiles,
127      registry, log files, archives, base source and the default ports
128      tree. (cal in r113649)
129
130    - Detect when base is running on a different platform than the one
131      it was configured for and refer user to migration instructions.
132      (raimue in r113478)
133
134    - Merge curl HTTP POST support required for MacPorts port statistics

143    - Add "-prepend" command for Portfile options (similar to existing
144      "-append" command). (#40655, ryandesign in r111990)
145
146    - Merge new test framework developed in GSoC 2013 (mariusc in r111325)
147
148    - Support clang's -stdlib option explicitly using configure.cxx_stdlib
149      rather than relying on its default value. This can be used to make
150      MacPorts use libc++ on OS X < 10.9. (larryv in r110519)
151
152    - Support syncing git-svn working copies. (jeremyhu in r109747)

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

175Release 2.2.0 (2013-07-23 by jmr)
176    - Fixed ports sometimes being incorrectly cleaned after the unarchive
177      target is run with newer archives. (jmr in r106717)
178
179    - When rebuilding an installed port, fixed the old copy being removed
180      before the new copy has been built. (jmr in r106668)
181
182    - Support deleting selected files and directories before creating a pkg.
183      (blair in r105575)

190
191    - Workaround for some OS commands hanging on 10.8 when started from a root
192      login shell. (#34221, jeremyhu in r104118)
193
194    - TMPDIR is now set to ${workpath}/.tmp while building ports, to avoid
195      problems with using /tmp. (#37834, ryandesign in r103518)
196
197    - Remove unimplemented 'port submit', remove XAR source packages.
198      (cal in r103400)
199

203
204    - Setting configure.compiler will now automatically add a dependency if
205      the chosen compiler is provided by a port. (#32542, cal in r102932)
206
207    - Add 'port space --total' which displays the grand total only.
208      (raimue in r102248)
209
210    - Added 'subport:' pseudo-portname that expands to ports that provide
211      a matching subport; added 'subportof:' pseudo-portname that expands to
212      the list of subports of the given port name
213      (raimue in r100059)
214
215    - Fixes bringing trace mode back to a working state. Improvements to reduce
216      the number of builds trace mode breaks.
217      (cal in r100071-100073, r100077, r100126, r100221, r106710)
218
219    - Began using sandbox-exec(1) on 10.5+ to prevent commands executed using
220      the 'system' procedure from writing files outside of the build directory
221      and selected other locations like /tmp. (jmr in r98156, r98193, etc.)
222
223    - Added ability to sync ports tree with git (jeremyhu in r92410)
224
225Release 2.1.3 (2013-01-31 by jmr)

229      (#29223, cal in r96136, r96399, r96400, r96538)
230
231    - Fix permission problem in the creation of the ccache directory with
232      ccache >= 3.1.7 by running the initialization step as the macportsuser.
233      (raimue in r97868)
234
235    - Fix an endless loop that could be triggered in rev-upgrade when a broken
236      port is not in the index, e.g. when it has been deleted from the tree,
237      or it was installed directly from a Portfile not in the tree.
238      (cal in r100129, jmr in r101313)
239
240    - Set a busy timeout on SQLite connections to prevent MacPorts from

242      (cal in r100217)
243
244    - Switch from exclusive locking to immediate locking in the registry
245      database to avoid locking reads where not needed.
246      (cal in r100218)
247
248    - Fix a problem where interrupting the uninstallation process could leave
249      the registry database in a corrupted state.
250      (#34482, cal in r100219)

255    - Fixed an incorrect lint error about the port directory name when a full
256      @macports.org maintainer address is used. (#35925, ryandesign in r97264)
257
258    - Fixed creation of disk images with flat packages. (jmr in r99167)
259
260    - Fixed a bug where not all requested variants would be passed on to
261      dependencies when building an mpkg. (#36363, jmr in r100679)
262
263    - Added configure.compiler options macports-clang-3.2 and
264      macports-clang-3.3 (jeremyhu, ryandesign, jmr in r92588, r101163,

278      11,12, cal in r95438)
279
280    - Made mpkg fail when building a component pkg fails, instead of trying to
281      continue (jmr in r95382)
282
283    - Added a log message when everything to be installed has an unsatisfied
284      dependency, such as in the case of circular dependencies (jmr in r93962)
285
286    - Fixed incorrect error message when installing a port that has a
287      dependency that is not in the index (#31130, jmr in r93511)
288
289Release 2.1.1 (2012-05-19 by jmr):
290    - Fixed incorrect parsing of mirror group URLs that contain a colon to
291      indicate a port number (#32018, jmr in r93258)
292
293    - Do not print detailed progress information in rev-upgrade when stdout is
294      not a terminal (#34480, cal in r93221,r93222)
295
296    - Made rev-upgrade avoid trying to upgrade ports that are not in the index
297      (jmr in r93197)
298
299    - Fixed rev-upgrade disabling source-only mode in its first upgrade pass

312      macports-clang-3.1, macports-gcc-4.7, macports-gcc-4.8
313      (jeremyhu in r86719, ryandesign in r91521)
314
315    - Avoid using pkg-config to find sqlite3 in our configure script unless it
316      can't be found by other means, because some third-party packages
317      incorrectly install a /usr/bin/pkg-config that points to an incompatible
318      copy of sqlite3. (#30932, dluke/jmr in r91512)
319
320    - 'port pkg' and 'port mpkg' will now create flat packages (i.e. a xar
321      archive rather than a directory) on 10.6+.
322      (jmr in r91317, r91329, r91331, r91437)
323

328      archive is available for download (and port is configured to use it).
329      (jmr in r91196, r91217)
330
331    - Added new config file archive_sites.conf, which can be used to configure
332      additional archive download sources. Each source has an associated
333      archive type; portarchivetype is now only used when creating archives
334      locally. Sources also have an associated prefix, applications_dir and
335      frameworks_dir, and if any of these do not match the current values, the
336      source is not used. (jmr in r91009)
337
338    - Xcode 4.3 support: Search harder for developer directory; advise user to
339      run xcode-select when necessary, searching for Xcode and suggesting
340      xcode-select commands.
341      (jberry, jmr in r89970,r89971,r89972,r89996,r89999,r90003,r90005-r90009,
342      r90018-r90019,r90024,r90031)
343
344    - warn about non-existing developer_dir when it's set in macports.conf
345      (cal in 90802)
346
347    - port automatically installs bsdmake when there's no bsdmake in $PATH and a
348      port sets build.type bsd (#33355, cal in r90650)
349
350    - Added -W option for reinplace that sets a base directory that all file
351      arguments are interpreted as being relative to. (raimue in r90610)
352
353    - Added macports.conf options 'host_blacklist' and 'preferred_hosts', used
354      for indicating lists of download hosts that should not be used or should
355      be used preferentially, respectively. These override the usual ping time
356      check. Ping times are also now cached for 24 hours. (jmr in r89459)
357
358    - Added 'rev-upgrade' action checking for broken linkage and rebuilding
359      ports containing broken files. Made rev-upgrade run automatically after
360      each upgrade or install.
361      (cal in branch gsoc11-rev-upgrade, merge in r88376, also cal, raimue, jmr
362      in r88377,r88411,r88441,r88511,r88666,r88732,r89180,r89659,r89661,r90102,
363      r90381)
364
365    - Added options controlling rev-upgrade behavior to macports.conf
366      (jmr, cal in r88725,r88794,r89189)
367
368    - port livecheck regex finds multiple matches on the same line
369      (raimue in r88031)
370
371    - Several improvements to port lint:
372      licenses, subversion properties, maintainer addresses
373      (#30194, snc, raimue in r85929, r86016, r89428, r89610)
374
375    - Added license_noconflict option to specify dependencies for which the
376      maintainer has manually checked license compatibility and wishes to
377      overrule the conservative automated checks. (jmr in r89004)
378
379    - Xcode 4.3 support: Use xcrun -find to find xcode compiler if it's not
380      found in /usr/bin.
381      (jberry, jmr in r88540,r88541,r88546,r88777,r88779,r88787,r89359,r89984,r90028)
382
383    - Added options compiler.blacklist, compiler.whitelist, and
384      compiler.fallback; to allow blacklisting, whitelisting, and setting the
385      fallback order for configure.compiler values, respectively.

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