15Release 1.2:
16
17        - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
18          specified will now all default to a port in current directory.
19         
20        - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
21          Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
22          one can now say "port install porta portb".
23         
24        - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
25          port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
26          matching the glob pattern is substituted.
27         
28        - Enhance port command to allow use of "psuedo" portnames to specify
29          groups of ports.
30          When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
31          the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
32
33          Currently defined psuedo portnames are:
34                current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
35         
36          Additional psuedo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
37          regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
38          a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
39          The selectors are:
40          variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
41          platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
42          categories:, category:, and revision:
43         
44        - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
45          ports or groups of ports.
46          Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")".
47         
48        - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
49          url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
50          though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
51          ports can be specified to a target.
52         
53        - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
54          rather than systemstarter.
55         
56        - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
57          startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
58          systemstarter and launchd.
