7ToDo Items for release 1.2:
9    - Add to port(1) manpage docs for new port(1) syntax. (Juan)
10    - Add to portfile(7) manpage docs for the new startupitem keys. (James will stab at it)
11    - Add to ports.conf(5) manpage docs on new startupitem_type option. (James will stab at it)
12    - Portfile(7) missing keywords: (???)
13    - Maybe: cvs/svn fetch w/ patches: (yeled?)
16Release 1.2 (unreleased):
18        - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
19          specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
21        - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
22          Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
23          one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
25        - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
26          port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
27          matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
29        - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
30          groups of ports.
31          When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
32          the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
34          Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
35                current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
37          Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
38          regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
39          a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
40          The selectors are:
41          variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
42          platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
43          categories:, category:, and revision: (jberry)
45        - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
46          ports or groups of ports.
47          Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
49        - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
50          url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
51          though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
52          ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
54        - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
55          rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
57        - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
58          startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
59          systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
61        - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
62          several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
63          can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
64          with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
65          in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
66          require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
68        - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
69          this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
70          This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
72        - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
73          properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
75        - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
76          ones considered harmful (blb)
78        - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
79          when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry)
81        - Addition of the script that takes care of the automated
82          index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
84        - Miscellaneous cleanups:
85                - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
86                  other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
87                - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
88                  reports (pguyot)
89                - fixes for the script (jkh)
91        - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
92          that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
94        - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
96        - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
97          echo (the expanded arguments),
98          cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
99          edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
100          dir (emit path to the port's directory),
101          file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
102          (jberry)
105Release 1.1:
107        (information not here).
109Release 1.0:
111        (information not here).
