5
6Release 2.4 (unreleased)
7    - Add depends_test to handle the dependencies for the test phase of ports.
8      (khindenburg in r140488, #38208)
9
10    - Replaced the strings previously printed by "port help" with much more
11      detailed and current manpages written using asciidoc that open
12      automatically. Added documentation for almost all commands currently
13      implemented by MacPorts.
14      (raimue in branch new-help-system, merge in r123002,
15       manpages written by cal, jmr, raimue, ionic, jeremyhu,
16       #44530, #15467)
17
18    - Added macports_version to the Portfile execution context, to allow
19      checking the current MacPorts version in Portfiles.
20      (cal in r134511)
21
22    - Added "setunrequested" alias for "unsetrequested" command.
23      (ionic in r130217)
24
25    - Added interactive questions for various use cases like 'install',
26      'activate', 'uninstall --follow-dependencies'. Also added global
27      flag '-N' to provide non-interactive invocations.
28      (shasha in branch gsoc14-interactive, merge in r124243)
29
30    - Display notes for installed or updated ports at the end of the
31      installation to prevent them from getting lost in the scrolling output.
32      (#24507, cal in r118304, patch by snc)
33
34    - Handle SIGTERM and SIGINT (^C) in MacPorts to prevent inconsistencies in
35      the registry database when MacPorts is aborted during a critical
36      operation.
37      (cal in r118297 and r118298)
38
39    - Remove "support" for rpm and deb packages in MacPorts, leaving pkg/mpkg.
40      (afb in r123004)
41
42    - Remove deprecated rpm-vercomp function, ports should use vercmp instead.
43      (afb in r123005)
44
45Release 2.3.4 (2015-10-01 by jmr)
46    - Installation will now abort when an archive is found on a server but
47      downloading it fails, rather than trying to build from source without
48      the correct dependencies (jmr in r138461)
49
50    - Re-added macports-llvm-gcc-4.2 and apple-gcc-4.2 to the compiler
51      fallback list on Yosemite now that they work (jmr in r136965)
52
53    - Changed the existsuser and existsgroup procs to return -1 on failure
54      instead of 0, since 0 is root's uid (#45737, cal in r135851)
55
56    - The MacPorts version is now available to Portfiles through a proc called
57      macports_version (cal in r134511)
58
59    - Fix failure to activate ports that install files with backslashes in
60      their names (#47283, cal in r134501, r134502)
61
62Release 2.3.3 (2014-11-21 by jmr)
63    - Fix database performance regressions with SQLite 3.8 by specifying a

65
66Release 2.3.2 (2014-10-17 by jmr)
67    - Fix a crash in trace mode when software calls posix_spawn(2) with NULL
68      as envp (which isn't a legal thing to do from what I understand, but
69      there's software that does it) (#45318, cal in r126475)
70
71    - Tune down the noise while using trace mode; in the default verbosity
72      setting, only report files that actually exist and were hidden.
73      (cal in r124150, r124216)
74
75    - Fix bugs in trace mode that caused it to (1) not ignore /usr/local as
76      it should and (2) fail with certain lengths of $prefix.
77      (cal in r124145, r124146)
78

95    - Added quoting to PATH and MANPATH variables set by the installer, to
96      accomodate paths containing spaces (#43798, jmr in r121311)
97
98    - Update for automatic dependencies for fetch.type git, needed due to the
99      git-core port being renamed to git (#44052, ciserlohn in r120928)
100
101    - Fixed failure to sync using daily tarball (#43821, cal in r120382)
102
103Release 2.3 (2014-05-24 by jmr)

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

150
151    - Support clang's -stdlib option explicitly using configure.cxx_stdlib
152      rather than relying on its default value. This can be used to make
153      MacPorts use libc++ on OS X < 10.9. (larryv in r110519)
154
155    - Support syncing git-svn working copies. (jeremyhu in r109747)

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

178Release 2.2.0 (2013-07-23 by jmr)
179    - Fixed ports sometimes being incorrectly cleaned after the unarchive
180      target is run with newer archives. (jmr in r106717)
181
182    - When rebuilding an installed port, fixed the old copy being removed
183      before the new copy has been built. (jmr in r106668)
184
185    - Support deleting selected files and directories before creating a pkg.
186      (blair in r105575)

195      login shell. (#34221, jeremyhu in r104118)
196
197    - TMPDIR is now set to ${workpath}/.tmp while building ports, to avoid
198      problems with using /tmp. (#37834, ryandesign in r103518)
199
200    - Remove unimplemented 'port submit', remove XAR source packages.
201      (cal in r103400)

206
207    - Setting configure.compiler will now automatically add a dependency if
208      the chosen compiler is provided by a port. (#32542, cal in r102932)
209
210    - Add 'port space --total' which displays the grand total only.
211      (raimue in r102248)
212
213    - Added 'subport:' pseudo-portname that expands to ports that provide
214      a matching subport; added 'subportof:' pseudo-portname that expands to
215      the list of subports of the given port name
216      (raimue in r100059)
217
218    - Fixes bringing trace mode back to a working state. Improvements to reduce
219      the number of builds trace mode breaks.
220      (cal in r100071-100073, r100077, r100126, r100221, r106710)
221
222    - Began using sandbox-exec(1) on 10.5+ to prevent commands executed using

224      and selected other locations like /tmp. (jmr in r98156, r98193, etc.)
225

233
234    - Fix permission problem in the creation of the ccache directory with
235      ccache >= 3.1.7 by running the initialization step as the macportsuser.
236      (raimue in r97868)
237
238    - Fix an endless loop that could be triggered in rev-upgrade when a broken
239      port is not in the index, e.g. when it has been deleted from the tree,
240      or it was installed directly from a Portfile not in the tree.
241      (cal in r100129, jmr in r101313)
242

284      continue (jmr in r95382)
285
286    - Added a log message when everything to be installed has an unsatisfied
287      dependency, such as in the case of circular dependencies (jmr in r93962)

289    - Fixed incorrect error message when installing a port that has a
290      dependency that is not in the index (#31130, jmr in r93511)
291
292Release 2.1.1 (2012-05-19 by jmr):

299    - Made rev-upgrade avoid trying to upgrade ports that are not in the index
300      (jmr in r93197)

316      (jeremyhu in r86719, ryandesign in r91521)
317
318    - Avoid using pkg-config to find sqlite3 in our configure script unless it
319      can't be found by other means, because some third-party packages
320      incorrectly install a /usr/bin/pkg-config that points to an incompatible
321      copy of sqlite3. (#30932, dluke/jmr in r91512)
322
323    - 'port pkg' and 'port mpkg' will now create flat packages (i.e. a xar
324      archive rather than a directory) on 10.6+.
325      (jmr in r91317, r91329, r91331, r91437)
326

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

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