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
21        - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
22       
23        - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
24          a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
25         
26        - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
27          (jberry)
28
29Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
30
31    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
32      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
33      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
34
35    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
36      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
37
38    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
39      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
40
41    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
42   
43    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
44   
45    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
46      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
47
48    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
49      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
50   
51    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
52   
53    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
54      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
55   
56    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
57   
58    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
59      (jberry)
60
61    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
62      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
63      (landonf)
64   
65    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
66      installed. (jmpp)
67
68    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
69      project path. (pguyot)
70   
71    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
72      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
73
74    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
75      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
76   
77    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
78      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
79
80    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
81      (olegb)
82   
83    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
84      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
85
86    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
87      iterating). (jberry)
88
89    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
90      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
91      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
92
93    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
94   
95    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
96      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
97      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
98      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
99      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
100      shoot yourself. (jberry)
101
102    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
103      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
104   
105    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
106      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
107
108    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
109
110    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
111      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
112        several bug fixes.
113      * cleaned up the code.
114      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
115        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
116        reported creations).
117      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
118        overwritten.
119
120    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
121   
122    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
123      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
124      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
125   
126        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
127          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
128          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
129     
130        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
131          input following any commands given as arguments.
132         
133        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
134          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
135          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
136            #!/usr/bin/env portf
137           
138        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
139       
140        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
141       
142        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
143          interactive/batch mode.
144         
145        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
146       
147        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
148          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
149          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
150       
151    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
152      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
153      (jberry).
154   
155    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
156      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
157   
158    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
159      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
160      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
161   
162    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
163      (pguyot)
164
165    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
166   
167    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
168      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
169      (jberry)
170
171    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
172      MacOS X. (mww)
173     
174    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
175      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
176      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
177      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
178      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
179      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
180      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
181      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
182      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
183      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
184      (jberry) 2006-02-16
185     
186Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
187
188    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
189      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
190      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
191      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
192      fat, configure as follows:
193        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
194                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
195                                       
196    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
197      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
198      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
199
200Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
201
202    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
203      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
204      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
205        port uninstall vim @1.0
206      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
207      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
208
209    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
210      destroot, too. (mww)
211
212    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
213      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
214     
215    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
216      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
217      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
218     
219    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
220      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
221      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
222     
223    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
224      groups of ports.
225      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
226      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
227
228      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
229        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
230     
231      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
232      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
233      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
234      The selectors are:
235      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
236      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
237      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
238     
239    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
240      ports or groups of ports.
241      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
242     
243    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
244      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
245      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
246      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
247     
248    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
249      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
250     
251    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
252      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
253      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
254     
255    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
256      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
257      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
258      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
259      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
260      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
261
262    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
263      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
264      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
265
266    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
267      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
268
269    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
270      ones considered harmful (blb)
271
272    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
273      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
274
275    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
276      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
277
278    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
279        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
280          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
281        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
282          reports (pguyot)
283        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
284
285    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
286      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
287
288    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
289   
290    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
291      echo (the expanded arguments),
292      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
293      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
294      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
295      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
296      (jberry)
297     
298    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
299      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
300      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
301      in a similar fashion (jberry)
