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    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
18      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
19     
20    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
21      (jberry)
22
23    - Added a new test case for the previous bug. (pguyot)
24   
25    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
26
27    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
28   
29    - Additions to man page for port(1):
30       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
31       * mention interactive and batch modes
32       * document extensions to info command.
33   
34Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
35
36    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
37      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
38      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
39
40    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
41      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
42
43    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
44      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
45
46    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
47   
48    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
49   
50    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
51      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
52
53    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
54      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
55   
56    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
57   
58    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
59      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
60   
61    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
62   
63    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
64      (jberry)
65
66    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
67      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
68      (landonf)
69   
70    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
71      installed. (jmpp)
72
73    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
74      project path. (pguyot)
75   
76    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
77      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
78
79    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
80      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
81   
82    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
83      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
84
85    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
86      (olegb)
87   
88    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
89      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
90
91    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
92      iterating). (jberry)
93
94    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
95      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
96      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
97
98    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
99   
100    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
101      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
102      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
103      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
104      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
105      shoot yourself. (jberry)
106
107    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
108      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
109   
110    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
111      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
112
113    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
114
115    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
116      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
117        several bug fixes.
118      * cleaned up the code.
119      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
120        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
121        reported creations).
122      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
123        overwritten.
124
125    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
126   
127    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
128      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
129      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
130   
131        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
132          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
133          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
134     
135        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
136          input following any commands given as arguments.
137         
138        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
139          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
140          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
141            #!/usr/bin/env portf
142           
143        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
144       
145        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
146       
147        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
148          interactive/batch mode.
149         
150        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
151       
152        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
153          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
154          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
155       
156    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
157      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
158      (jberry).
159   
160    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
161      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
162   
163    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
164      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
165      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
166   
167    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
168      (pguyot)
169
170    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
171   
172    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
173      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
174      (jberry)
175
176    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
177      MacOS X. (mww)
178     
179    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
180      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
181      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
182      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
183      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
184      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
185      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
186      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
187      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
188      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
189      (jberry) 2006-02-16
190     
191Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
192
193    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
194      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
195      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
196      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
197      fat, configure as follows:
198        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
199                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
200                                       
201    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
202      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
203      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
204
205Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
206
207    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
208      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
209      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
210        port uninstall vim @1.0
211      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
212      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
213
214    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
215      destroot, too. (mww)
216
217    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
218      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
219     
220    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
221      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
222      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
223     
224    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
225      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
226      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
227     
228    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
229      groups of ports.
230      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
231      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
232
233      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
234        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
235     
236      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
237      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
238      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
239      The selectors are:
240      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
241      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
242      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
243     
244    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
245      ports or groups of ports.
246      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
247     
248    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
249      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
250      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
251      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
252     
253    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
254      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
255     
256    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
257      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
258      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
259     
260    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
261      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
262      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
263      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
264      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
265      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
266
267    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
268      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
269      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
270
271    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
272      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
273
274    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
275      ones considered harmful (blb)
276
277    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
278      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
279
280    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
281      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
282
283    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
284        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
285          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
286        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
287          reports (pguyot)
288        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
289
290    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
291      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
292
293    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
294   
295    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
296      echo (the expanded arguments),
297      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
298      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
299      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
300      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
301      (jberry)
302     
303    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
304      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
305      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
306      in a similar fashion (jberry)
307
