7Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
8
9        - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
10          the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
11          This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
12          allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
13          fat, configure as follows:
14                ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
15                                                                                backported from HEAD (jberry)
16                                                                               
17        - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
18          is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
19          to the next mirror.                           backported from HEAD (jberry)
20
21Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
22
23        - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
24          line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
25          The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
26                port uninstall vim @1.0
27          This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
28          require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
29
30        - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
31          destroot, too. (mww)
32
33        - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
34          specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
35         
36        - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
37          Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
38          one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
39         
40        - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
41          port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
42          matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
43         
44        - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
45          groups of ports.
46          When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
47          the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
48
49          Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
50                current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
51         
52          Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
53          regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
54          a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
55          The selectors are:
56          variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
57          platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
58          categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
59         
60        - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
61          ports or groups of ports.
62          Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
63         
64        - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
65          url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
66          though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
67          ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
68         
69        - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
70          rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
71         
72        - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
73          startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
74          systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
75         
76        - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
77          several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
78          can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
79          with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
80          in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
81          require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
82
83        - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
84          this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
85          This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
86
87        - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
88          properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
89
90        - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
91          ones considered harmful (blb)
92
93        - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
94          when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
95
96        - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
97          index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
98
99        - Miscellaneous cleanups:
100                - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
101                  other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
102                - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
103                  reports (pguyot)
104                - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
105
106        - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
107          that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
108
109        - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
110       
111        - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
112          echo (the expanded arguments),
113          cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
114          edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
115          dir (emit path to the port's directory),
116          file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
117          (jberry)
118         
119        - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
120          to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
121          Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
122          in a similar fashion (jberry)
