4#   This is a log of major user-visible changes in each release
7Release 1.3 (unreleased):
9    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
10      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
11      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
13    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
14      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
16    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
17      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
19    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
21    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
23    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
24      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
26    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
27      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
29    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
31    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
32      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
34    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
36    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
37      (jberry)
39    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
40      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
41      (landonf)
43    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
44      installed. (jmpp)
46    - Fixed a bugs in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
47      project path. (pguyot)
49    - Fixed a bugs in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
50      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
52    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
53      (olegb)
55    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
56      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
58    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
59      iterating). (jberry)
61    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
62      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
63      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
65    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
67    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
68      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
69      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
70      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
71      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
72      shoot yourself. (jberry)
74    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
75      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
77    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
78      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
80    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
82    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
83      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
84        several bug fixes.
85      * cleaned up the code.
86      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
87        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
88        reported creations).
89      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
90        overwritten.
92    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
94    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
95      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
96      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
98        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
99          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
100          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
102        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
103          input following any commands given as arguments.
105        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
106          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
107          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
108            #!/usr/bin/env portf
110        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
112        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
114        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
115          interactive/batch mode.
117        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
119        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
120          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
121          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
123    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
124      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
125      (jberry).
127    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
128      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
130    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
131      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
132      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
134    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
135      (pguyot)
137    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
139    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
140      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
141      (jberry)
143    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
144      MacOS X. (mww)
146    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
147      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
148      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
149      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
150      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
151      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
152      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
153      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
154      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
155      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
156      (jberry) 2006-02-16
158Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
160    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
161      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
162      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
163      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
164      fat, configure as follows:
165        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
166                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
168    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
169      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
170      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
172Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
174    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
175      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
176      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
177        port uninstall vim @1.0
178      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
179      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
181    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
182      destroot, too. (mww)
184    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
185      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
187    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
188      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
189      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
191    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
192      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
193      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
195    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
196      groups of ports.
197      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
198      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
200      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
201        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
203      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
204      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
205      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
206      The selectors are:
207      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
208      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
209      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
211    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
212      ports or groups of ports.
213      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
215    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
216      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
217      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
218      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
220    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
221      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
223    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
224      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
225      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
227    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
228      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
229      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
230      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
231      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
232      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
234    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
235      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
236      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
238    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
239      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
241    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
242      ones considered harmful (blb)
244    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
245      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
247    - Addition of the script that takes care of the automated
248      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
250    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
251        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
252          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
253        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
254          reports (pguyot)
255        - fixes for the script (jkh)
257    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
258      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
260    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
262    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
263      echo (the expanded arguments),
264      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
265      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
266      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
267      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
268      (jberry)
270    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change
271      to This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
272      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
273      in a similar fashion (jberry)
276Release 1.1:
