8Release 1.5 (unreleased):
9
10    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
11
12    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in r22313).
13
14
15Release 1.4 (unreleased):
16
17    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
18      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
19
20    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
21
22    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
23      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
24
25    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
26
27    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
28
29    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
30      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
31
32    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
33
34    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
35
36    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
37      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
38
39    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the the 'delete' command, while reworking it
40      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
41
42    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
43      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
44      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
45
46    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
47
48    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
49      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
50
51    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
52      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
53
54    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
55      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
56
57    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
58
59    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
60
61    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
62      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
63
64    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
65
66    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
67
68    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
69
70    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
71      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
72
73    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
74      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
75
76    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
77
78    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
79
80
81Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
82
83    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
84      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
85
86    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
87
88    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
89      code. (pguyot)
90
91    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
92      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
93
94    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
95      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
96
97    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
98      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
99      /usr/local. (pguyot)
100
101    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
102
103    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
104      (josh_root, blb)
105
106    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
107      are modified. (pguyot)
108   
109    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
110      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
111
112    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
113      variable. (pguyot)
114     
115    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
116      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
117      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
118
119Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
120
121    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
122
123    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
124      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
125
126    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
127      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
128      SVN. (pguyot)
129
130    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
131      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
132     
133    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
134      (jberry)
135
136    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
137      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
138
139    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
140   
141    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
142
143    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
144   
145    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
146       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
147       * mention interactive and batch modes
148       * document extensions to info command.
149   
150    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
151
152    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
153      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
154      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
155   
156Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
157
158    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
159      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
160      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
161
162    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
163      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
164
165    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
166      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
167
168    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
169   
170    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
171   
172    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
173      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
174
175    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
176      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
177   
178    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
179   
180    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
181      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
182   
183    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
184   
185    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
186      (jberry)
187
188    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
189      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
190      (landonf)
191   
192    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
193      installed. (jmpp)
194
195    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
196      project path. (pguyot)
197   
198    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
199      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
200
201    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
202      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
203   
204    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
205      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
206
207    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
208      (olegb)
209   
210    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
211      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
212
213    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
214      iterating). (jberry)
215
216    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
217      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
218      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
219
220    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
221   
222    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
223      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
224      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
225      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
226      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
227      shoot yourself. (jberry)
228
229    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
230      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
231   
232    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
233      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
234
235    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
236
237    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
238      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
239        several bug fixes.
240      * cleaned up the code.
241      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
242        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
243        reported creations).
244      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
245        overwritten.
246
247    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
248   
249    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
250      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
251      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
252   
253        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
254          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
255          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
256     
257        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
258          input following any commands given as arguments.
259         
260        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
261          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
262          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
263            #!/usr/bin/env portf
264           
265        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
266       
267        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
268       
269        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
270          interactive/batch mode.
271         
272        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
273       
274        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
275          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
276          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
277       
278    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
279      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
280      (jberry).
281   
282    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
283      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
284   
285    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
286      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
287      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
288   
289    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
290      (pguyot)
291
292    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
293   
294    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
295      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
296      (jberry)
297
298    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
299      MacOS X. (mww)
300     
301    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
302      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
303      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
304      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
305      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
306      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
307      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
308      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
309      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
310      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
311      (jberry) 2006-02-16
312     
313Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
314
315    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
316      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
317      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
318      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
319      fat, configure as follows:
320        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
321                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
322                                       
323    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
324      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
325      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
326
327Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
328
329    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
330      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
331      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
332        port uninstall vim @1.0
333      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
334      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
335
336    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
337      destroot, too. (mww)
338
339    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
340      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
341     
342    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
343      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
344      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
345     
346    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
347      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
348      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
349     
350    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
351      groups of ports.
352      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
353      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
354
355      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
356        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
357     
358      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
359      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
360      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
361      The selectors are:
362      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
363      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
364      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
365     
366    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
367      ports or groups of ports.
368      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
369     
370    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
371      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
372      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
373      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
374     
375    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
376      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
377     
378    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
379      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
380      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
381     
382    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
383      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
384      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
385      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
386      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
387      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
388
389    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
390      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
391      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
392
393    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
394      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
395
396    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
397      ones considered harmful (blb)
398
399    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
400      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
401
402    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
403      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
404
405    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
406        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
407          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
408        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
409          reports (pguyot)
410        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
411
412    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
413      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
414
415    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
416   
417    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
418      echo (the expanded arguments),
419      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
420      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
421      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
422      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
423      (jberry)
424     
425    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
426      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
427      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
428      in a similar fashion (jberry)
429
