7Release 1.? (unreleased):
8
9    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
10      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
11
12    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
13
14    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
15      code. (pguyot)
16
17    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
18      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
19
20    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
21      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
22
23    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
24      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
25      /usr/local. (pguyot)
26
27    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
28
29    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
30      (josh_root, blb)
31
32    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
33      are modified. (pguyot)
34   
35    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
36      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
37
38    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
39      variable. (pguyot)
40
41Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
42
43    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
44
45    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
46      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
47
48    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
49      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
50      SVN. (pguyot)
51
52    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
53      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
54     
55    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
56      (jberry)
57
58    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
59      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
60
61    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
62   
63    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
64
65    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
66   
67    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
68       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
69       * mention interactive and batch modes
70       * document extensions to info command.
71   
72    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
73
74    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
75      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
76      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
77   
78Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
79
80    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
81      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
82      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
83
84    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
85      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
86
87    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
88      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
89
90    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
91   
92    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
93   
94    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
95      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
96
97    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
98      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
99   
100    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
101   
102    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
103      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
104   
105    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
106   
107    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
108      (jberry)
109
110    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
111      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
112      (landonf)
113   
114    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
115      installed. (jmpp)
116
117    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
118      project path. (pguyot)
119   
120    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
121      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
122
123    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
124      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
125   
126    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
127      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
128
129    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
130      (olegb)
131   
132    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
133      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
134
135    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
136      iterating). (jberry)
137
138    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
139      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
140      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
141
142    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
143   
144    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
145      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
146      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
147      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
148      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
149      shoot yourself. (jberry)
150
151    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
152      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
153   
154    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
155      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
156
157    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
158
159    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
160      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
161        several bug fixes.
162      * cleaned up the code.
163      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
164        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
165        reported creations).
166      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
167        overwritten.
168
169    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
170   
171    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
172      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
173      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
174   
175        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
176          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
177          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
178     
179        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
180          input following any commands given as arguments.
181         
182        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
183          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
184          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
185            #!/usr/bin/env portf
186           
187        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
188       
189        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
190       
191        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
192          interactive/batch mode.
193         
194        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
195       
196        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
197          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
198          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
199       
200    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
201      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
202      (jberry).
203   
204    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
205      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
206   
207    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
208      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
209      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
210   
211    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
212      (pguyot)
213
214    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
215   
216    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
217      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
218      (jberry)
219
220    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
221      MacOS X. (mww)
222     
223    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
224      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
225      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
226      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
227      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
228      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
229      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
230      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
231      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
232      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
233      (jberry) 2006-02-16
234     
235Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
236
237    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
238      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
239      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
240      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
241      fat, configure as follows:
242        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
243                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
244                                       
245    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
246      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
247      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
248
249Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
250
251    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
252      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
253      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
254        port uninstall vim @1.0
255      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
256      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
257
258    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
259      destroot, too. (mww)
260
261    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
262      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
263     
264    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
265      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
266      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
267     
268    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
269      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
270      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
271     
272    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
273      groups of ports.
274      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
275      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
276
277      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
278        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
279     
280      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
281      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
282      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
283      The selectors are:
284      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
285      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
286      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
287     
288    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
289      ports or groups of ports.
290      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
291     
292    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
293      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
294      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
295      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
296     
297    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
298      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
299     
300    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
301      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
302      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
303     
304    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
305      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
306      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
307      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
308      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
309      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
310
311    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
312      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
313      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
314
315    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
316      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
317
318    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
319      ones considered harmful (blb)
320
321    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
322      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
323
324    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
325      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
326
327    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
328        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
329          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
330        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
331          reports (pguyot)
332        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
333
334    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
335      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
336
337    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
338   
339    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
340      echo (the expanded arguments),
341      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
342      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
343      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
344      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
345      (jberry)
346     
347    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
348      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
349      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
350      in a similar fashion (jberry)
