7Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
8
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)
12
13    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
14      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
15
16    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
17      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
18
19    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
20   
21    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
22   
23    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
24      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
25
26    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
27      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
28   
29    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
30   
31    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
32      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
33   
34    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
35   
36    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
37      (jberry)
38
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)
42   
43    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
44      installed. (jmpp)
45
46    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
47      project path. (pguyot)
48   
49    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
50      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
51
52    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
53      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
54   
55    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
56      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
57
58    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
59      (olegb)
60   
61    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
62      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
63
64    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
65      iterating). (jberry)
66
67    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
68      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
69      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
70
71    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
72   
73    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
74      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
75      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
76      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
77      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
78      shoot yourself. (jberry)
79
80    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
81      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
82   
83    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
84      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
85
86    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
87
88    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
89      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
90        several bug fixes.
91      * cleaned up the code.
92      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
93        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
94        reported creations).
95      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
96        overwritten.
97
98    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
99   
100    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
101      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
102      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
103   
104        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
105          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
106          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
107     
108        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
109          input following any commands given as arguments.
110         
111        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
112          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
113          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
114            #!/usr/bin/env portf
115           
116        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
117       
118        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
119       
120        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
121          interactive/batch mode.
122         
123        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
124       
125        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
126          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
127          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
128       
129    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
130      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
131      (jberry).
132   
133    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
134      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
135   
136    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
137      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
138      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
139   
140    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
141      (pguyot)
142
143    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
144   
145    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
146      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
147      (jberry)
148
149    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
150      MacOS X. (mww)
151     
152    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
153      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
154      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
155      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
156      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
157      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
158      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
159      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
160      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
161      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
162      (jberry) 2006-02-16
163     
164Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
165
166    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
167      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
168      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
169      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
170      fat, configure as follows:
171        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
172                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
173                                       
174    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
175      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
176      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
177
178Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
179
180    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
181      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
182      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
183        port uninstall vim @1.0
184      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
185      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
186
187    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
188      destroot, too. (mww)
189
190    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
191      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
192     
193    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
194      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
195      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
196     
197    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
198      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
199      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
200     
201    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
202      groups of ports.
203      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
204      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
205
206      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
207        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
208     
209      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
210      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
211      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
212      The selectors are:
213      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
214      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
215      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
216     
217    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
218      ports or groups of ports.
219      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
220     
221    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
222      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
223      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
224      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
225     
226    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
227      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
228     
229    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
230      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
231      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
232     
233    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
234      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
235      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
236      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
237      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
238      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
239
240    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
241      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
242      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
243
244    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
245      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
246
247    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
248      ones considered harmful (blb)
249
250    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
251      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
252
253    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
254      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
255
256    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
257        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
258          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
259        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
260          reports (pguyot)
261        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
262
263    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
264      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
265
266    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
267   
268    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
269      echo (the expanded arguments),
270      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
271      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
272      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
273      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
274      (jberry)
275     
276    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
277      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
278      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
279      in a similar fashion (jberry)
280
