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        - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
25          with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
26
27    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
28   
29    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
30
31    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
32   
33    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
34       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
35       * mention interactive and batch modes
36       * document extensions to info command.
37   
38    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
39   
40Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
41
42    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
43      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
44      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
45
46    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
47      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
48
49    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
50      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
51
52    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
53   
54    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
55   
56    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
57      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
58
59    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
60      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
61   
62    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
63   
64    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
65      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
66   
67    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
68   
69    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
70      (jberry)
71
72    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
73      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
74      (landonf)
75   
76    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
77      installed. (jmpp)
78
79    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
80      project path. (pguyot)
81   
82    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
83      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
84
85    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
86      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
87   
88    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
89      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
90
91    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
92      (olegb)
93   
94    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
95      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
96
97    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
98      iterating). (jberry)
99
100    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
101      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
102      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
103
104    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
105   
106    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
107      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
108      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
109      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
110      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
111      shoot yourself. (jberry)
112
113    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
114      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
115   
116    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
117      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
118
119    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
120
121    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
122      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
123        several bug fixes.
124      * cleaned up the code.
125      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
126        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
127        reported creations).
128      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
129        overwritten.
130
131    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
132   
133    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
134      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
135      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
136   
137        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
138          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
139          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
140     
141        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
142          input following any commands given as arguments.
143         
144        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
145          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
146          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
147            #!/usr/bin/env portf
148           
149        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
150       
151        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
152       
153        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
154          interactive/batch mode.
155         
156        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
157       
158        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
159          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
160          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
161       
162    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
163      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
164      (jberry).
165   
166    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
167      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
168   
169    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
170      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
171      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
172   
173    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
174      (pguyot)
175
176    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
177   
178    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
179      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
180      (jberry)
181
182    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
183      MacOS X. (mww)
184     
185    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
186      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
187      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
188      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
189      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
190      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
191      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
192      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
193      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
194      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
195      (jberry) 2006-02-16
196     
197Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
198
199    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
200      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
201      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
202      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
203      fat, configure as follows:
204        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
205                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
206                                       
207    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
208      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
209      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
210
211Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
212
213    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
214      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
215      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
216        port uninstall vim @1.0
217      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
218      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
219
220    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
221      destroot, too. (mww)
222
223    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
224      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
225     
226    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
227      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
228      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
229     
230    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
231      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
232      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
233     
234    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
235      groups of ports.
236      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
237      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
238
239      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
240        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
241     
242      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
243      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
244      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
245      The selectors are:
246      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
247      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
248      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
249     
250    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
251      ports or groups of ports.
252      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
253     
254    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
255      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
256      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
257      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
258     
259    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
260      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
261     
262    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
263      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
264      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
265     
266    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
267      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
268      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
269      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
270      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
271      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
272
273    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
274      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
275      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
276
277    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
278      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
279
280    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
281      ones considered harmful (blb)
282
283    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
284      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
285
286    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
287      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
288
289    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
290        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
291          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
292        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
293          reports (pguyot)
294        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
295
296    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
297      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
298
299    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
300   
301    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
302      echo (the expanded arguments),
303      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
304      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
305      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
306      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
307      (jberry)
308     
309    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
310      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
311      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
312      in a similar fashion (jberry)
313
