20Release 1.2 (unreleased):
21
22        - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
23          specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
24         
25        - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
26          Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
27          one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
28         
29        - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
30          port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
31          matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
32         
33        - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
34          groups of ports.
35          When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
36          the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
37
38          Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
39                current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
40         
41          Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
42          regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
43          a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
44          The selectors are:
45          variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
46          platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
47          categories:, category:, and revision: (jberry)
48         
49        - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
50          ports or groups of ports.
51          Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
52         
53        - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
54          url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
55          though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
56          ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
57         
58        - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
59          rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
60         
61        - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
62          startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
63          systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
64         
65        - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
66          several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
67          can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
68          with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
69          in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
70          require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
71
72        - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
73          this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
74          This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
75
76        - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
77          properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
78
79        - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
80          ones considered harmful (blb)
81
82        - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
83          when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry)
84
85        - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
86          index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
87
88        - Miscellaneous cleanups:
89                - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
90                  other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
91                - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
92                  reports (pguyot)
93                - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
94
95        - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
96          that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
97
98        - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
99       
100        - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
101          echo (the expanded arguments),
102          cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
103          edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
104          dir (emit path to the port's directory),
105          file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
106          (jberry)
