7Release 1.3.2 (unreleased):
8
9    - Corrected a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
10
11Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
12
13    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
14
15    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
16      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
17
18    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
19      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
20      SVN. (pguyot)
21
22    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
23      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
24     
25    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
26      (jberry)
27
28        - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
29          with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
30
31    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
32   
33    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
34
35    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
36   
37    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
38       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
39       * mention interactive and batch modes
40       * document extensions to info command.
41   
42    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
43
44    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
45      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
46      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
47   
48Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
49
50    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
51      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
52      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
53
54    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
55      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
56
57    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
58      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
59
60    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
61   
62    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
63   
64    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
65      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
66
67    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
68      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
69   
70    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
71   
72    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
73      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
74   
75    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
76   
77    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
78      (jberry)
79
80    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
81      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
82      (landonf)
83   
84    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
85      installed. (jmpp)
86
87    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
88      project path. (pguyot)
89   
90    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
91      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
92
93    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
94      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
95   
96    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
97      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
98
99    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
100      (olegb)
101   
102    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
103      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
104
105    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
106      iterating). (jberry)
107
108    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
109      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
110      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
111
112    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
113   
114    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
115      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
116      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
117      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
118      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
119      shoot yourself. (jberry)
120
121    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
122      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
123   
124    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
125      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
126
127    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
128
129    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
130      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
131        several bug fixes.
132      * cleaned up the code.
133      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
134        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
135        reported creations).
136      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
137        overwritten.
138
139    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
140   
141    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
142      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
143      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
144   
145        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
146          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
147          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
148     
149        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
150          input following any commands given as arguments.
151         
152        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
153          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
154          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
155            #!/usr/bin/env portf
156           
157        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
158       
159        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
160       
161        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
162          interactive/batch mode.
163         
164        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
165       
166        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
167          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
168          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
169       
170    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
171      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
172      (jberry).
173   
174    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
175      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
176   
177    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
178      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
179      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
180   
181    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
182      (pguyot)
183
184    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
185   
186    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
187      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
188      (jberry)
189
190    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
191      MacOS X. (mww)
192     
193    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
194      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
195      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
196      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
197      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
198      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
199      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
200      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
201      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
202      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
203      (jberry) 2006-02-16
204     
205Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
206
207    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
208      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
209      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
210      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
211      fat, configure as follows:
212        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
213                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
214                                       
215    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
216      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
217      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
218
219Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
220
221    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
222      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
223      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
224        port uninstall vim @1.0
225      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
226      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
227
228    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
229      destroot, too. (mww)
230
231    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
232      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
233     
234    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
235      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
236      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
237     
238    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
239      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
240      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
241     
242    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
243      groups of ports.
244      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
245      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
246
247      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
248        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
249     
250      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
251      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
252      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
253      The selectors are:
254      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
255      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
256      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
257     
258    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
259      ports or groups of ports.
260      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
261     
262    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
263      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
264      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
265      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
266     
267    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
268      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
269     
270    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
271      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
272      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
273     
274    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
275      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
276      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
277      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
278      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
279      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
280
281    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
282      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
283      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
284
285    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
286      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
287
288    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
289      ones considered harmful (blb)
290
291    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
292      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
293
294    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
295      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
296
297    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
298        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
299          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
300        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
301          reports (pguyot)
302        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
303
304    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
305      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
306
307    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
308   
309    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
310      echo (the expanded arguments),
311      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
312      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
313      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
314      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
315      (jberry)
316     
317    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
318      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
319      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
320      in a similar fashion (jberry)
321
