Last change on this file since 14508 was 14508, checked in by jberry, 15 years ago
  • Rename "portfile" action to "file"; rename "path" action to "dir".
  • Rename "ed" action to "edit", keeping "ed" as a nice short alias.
  • Abbreviate url used to specify current directory, so it looks better when we convert it to a path and add a "/".
  • Update ChangeLog to with additional information about new actions, and to reflect new names.
  • Property svn:eol-style set to native

14Release 1.2:
15
16        - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
17          specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
18         
19        - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
20          Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
21          one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
22         
23        - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
24          port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
25          matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
26         
27        - Enhance port command to allow use of "psuedo" portnames to specify
28          groups of ports.
29          When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
30          the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
31
32          Currently defined psuedo portnames are:
33                current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
34         
35          Additional psuedo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
36          regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
37          a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
38          The selectors are:
39          variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
40          platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
41          categories:, category:, and revision: (jberry)
42         
43        - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
44          ports or groups of ports.
45          Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
46         
47        - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
48          url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
49          though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
50          ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
51         
52        - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
53          rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
54         
55        - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
56          startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
57          systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
58         
59        - New Test framework [details?] (pguyot)
60
61        - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
62          this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
63          This code will fail out of svn is not installed. (jberry)
64
65        - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
66          properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
67
68        - DP now sets it's own env variables instead of filtering user declared
69          ones considered harmful (blb)
70
71        - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
72          when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry)
73
74        - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
75          index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
76
77        - Miscellaneous cleanups:
78                - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
79                  other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
80                - "--with-tclpackagedir" error report removals from autofconf voodoo (pguyot)
81                - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
82
83        - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
84          that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
85
86        - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
87       
88        - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
89          echo (the expanded arguments),
90          cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
91          edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
92          dir (emit path to the port's directory),
93          file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
94          (jberry)
