7Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
8
9    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
10
11    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
12      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
13
14    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
15      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
16      SVN. (pguyot)
17
18    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
19      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
20     
21    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
22      (jberry)
23
24    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
25   
26    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
27
28    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
29   
30    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
31       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
32       * mention interactive and batch modes
33       * document extensions to info command.
34   
35    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
36   
37Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
38
39    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
40      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
41      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
42
43    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
44      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
45
46    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
47      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
48
49    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
50   
51    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
52   
53    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
54      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
55
56    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
57      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
58   
59    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
60   
61    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
62      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
63   
64    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
65   
66    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
67      (jberry)
68
69    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
70      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
71      (landonf)
72   
73    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
74      installed. (jmpp)
75
76    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
77      project path. (pguyot)
78   
79    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
80      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
81
82    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
83      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
84   
85    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
86      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
87
88    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
89      (olegb)
90   
91    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
92      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
93
94    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
95      iterating). (jberry)
96
97    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
98      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
99      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
100
101    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
102   
103    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
104      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
105      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
106      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
107      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
108      shoot yourself. (jberry)
109
110    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
111      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
112   
113    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
114      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
115
116    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
117
118    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
119      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
120        several bug fixes.
121      * cleaned up the code.
122      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
123        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
124        reported creations).
125      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
126        overwritten.
127
128    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
129   
130    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
131      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
132      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
133   
134        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
135          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
136          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
137     
138        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
139          input following any commands given as arguments.
140         
141        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
142          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
143          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
144            #!/usr/bin/env portf
145           
146        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
147       
148        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
149       
150        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
151          interactive/batch mode.
152         
153        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
154       
155        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
156          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
157          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
158       
159    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
160      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
161      (jberry).
162   
163    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
164      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
165   
166    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
167      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
168      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
169   
170    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
171      (pguyot)
172
173    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
174   
175    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
176      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
177      (jberry)
178
179    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
180      MacOS X. (mww)
181     
182    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
183      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
184      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
185      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
186      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
187      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
188      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
189      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
190      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
191      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
192      (jberry) 2006-02-16
193     
194Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
195
196    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
197      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
198      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
199      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
200      fat, configure as follows:
201        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
202                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
203                                       
204    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
205      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
206      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
207
208Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
209
210    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
211      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
212      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
213        port uninstall vim @1.0
214      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
215      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
216
217    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
218      destroot, too. (mww)
219
220    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
221      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
222     
223    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
224      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
225      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
226     
227    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
228      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
229      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
230     
231    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
232      groups of ports.
233      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
234      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
235
236      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
237        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
238     
239      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
240      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
241      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
242      The selectors are:
243      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
244      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
245      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
246     
247    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
248      ports or groups of ports.
249      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
250     
251    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
252      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
253      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
254      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
255     
256    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
257      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
258     
259    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
260      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
261      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
262     
263    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
264      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
265      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
266      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
267      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
268      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
269
270    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
271      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
272      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
273
274    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
275      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
276
277    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
278      ones considered harmful (blb)
279
280    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
281      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
282
283    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
284      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
285
286    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
287        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
288          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
289        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
290          reports (pguyot)
291        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
292
293    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
294      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
295
296    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
297   
298    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
299      echo (the expanded arguments),
300      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
301      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
302      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
303      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
304      (jberry)
305     
306    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
307      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
308      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
309      in a similar fashion (jberry)
310
