7Release 1.3.1 (unreleased):
8
9    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
10
11    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. (pguyot)
12
13    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
14      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
15      SVN. (pguyot)
16
17        - Added a new test case for the previous bug. (pguyot)
18       
19        - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
20
21Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
22
23    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
24      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
25      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
26
27    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
28      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
29
30    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
31      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
32
33    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
34   
35    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
36   
37    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
38      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
39
40    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
41      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
42   
43    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
44   
45    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
46      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
47   
48    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
49   
50    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
51      (jberry)
52
53    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
54      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
55      (landonf)
56   
57    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
58      installed. (jmpp)
59
60    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
61      project path. (pguyot)
62   
63    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
64      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
65
66    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
67      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
68   
69    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
70      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
71
72    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
73      (olegb)
74   
75    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
76      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
77
78    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
79      iterating). (jberry)
80
81    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
82      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
83      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
84
85    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
86   
87    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
88      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
89      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
90      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
91      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
92      shoot yourself. (jberry)
93
94    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
95      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
96   
97    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
98      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
99
100    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
101
102    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
103      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
104        several bug fixes.
105      * cleaned up the code.
106      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
107        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
108        reported creations).
109      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
110        overwritten.
111
112    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
113   
114    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
115      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
116      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
117   
118        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
119          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
120          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
121     
122        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
123          input following any commands given as arguments.
124         
125        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
126          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
127          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
128            #!/usr/bin/env portf
129           
130        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
131       
132        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
133       
134        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
135          interactive/batch mode.
136         
137        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
138       
139        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
140          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
141          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
142       
143    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
144      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
145      (jberry).
146   
147    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
148      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
149   
150    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
151      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
152      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
153   
154    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
155      (pguyot)
156
157    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
158   
159    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
160      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
161      (jberry)
162
163    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
164      MacOS X. (mww)
165     
166    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
167      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
168      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
169      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
170      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
171      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
172      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
173      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
174      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
175      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
176      (jberry) 2006-02-16
177     
178Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
179
180    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
181      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
182      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
183      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
184      fat, configure as follows:
185        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
186                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
187                                       
188    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
189      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
190      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
191
192Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
193
194    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
195      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
196      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
197        port uninstall vim @1.0
198      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
199      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
200
201    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
202      destroot, too. (mww)
203
204    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
205      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
206     
207    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
208      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
209      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
210     
211    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
212      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
213      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
214     
215    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
216      groups of ports.
217      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
218      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
219
220      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
221        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
222     
223      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
224      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
225      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
226      The selectors are:
227      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
228      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
229      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
230     
231    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
232      ports or groups of ports.
233      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
234     
235    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
236      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
237      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
238      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
239     
240    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
241      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
242     
243    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
244      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
245      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
246     
247    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
248      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
249      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
250      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
251      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
252      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
253
254    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
255      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
256      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
257
258    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
259      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
260
261    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
262      ones considered harmful (blb)
263
264    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
265      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
266
267    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
268      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
269
270    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
271        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
272          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
273        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
274          reports (pguyot)
275        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
276
277    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
278      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
279
280    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
281   
282    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
283      echo (the expanded arguments),
284      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
285      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
286      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
287      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
288      (jberry)
289     
290    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
291      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
292      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
293      in a similar fashion (jberry)
294
