7Release 1.2 (unreleased):
8
9        - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
10          line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
11          The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
12                port uninstall vim @1.0
13          This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
14          require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
15
16        - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
17          destroot, too. (mww)
18
19        - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
20          specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
21         
22        - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
23          Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
24          one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
25         
26        - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
27          port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
28          matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
29         
30        - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
31          groups of ports.
32          When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
33          the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
34
35          Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
36                current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
37         
38          Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
39          regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
40          a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
41          The selectors are:
42          variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
43          platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
44          categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
45         
46        - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
47          ports or groups of ports.
48          Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
49         
50        - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
51          url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
52          though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
53          ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
54         
55        - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
56          rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
57         
58        - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
59          startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
60          systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
61         
62        - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
63          several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
64          can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
65          with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
66          in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
67          require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
68
69        - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
70          this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
71          This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
72
73        - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
74          properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
75
76        - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
77          ones considered harmful (blb)
78
79        - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
80          when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
81
82        - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
83          index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
84
85        - Miscellaneous cleanups:
86                - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
87                  other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
88                - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
89                  reports (pguyot)
90                - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
91
92        - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
93          that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
94
95        - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
96       
97        - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
98          echo (the expanded arguments),
99          cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
100          edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
101          dir (emit path to the port's directory),
102          file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
103          (jberry)
