9    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
10      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
11      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
12      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
13      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
14      (boeyms in r25310)
15
16Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry)
17
18    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
19
20Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
21
22    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
23
24    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
25      This allows information about variants to be displayed (eg. dependencies).
26      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
27      (eridius r25255).
28   
29    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
30
31    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
32      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
33      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
34
35    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
36      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
37
38    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
39      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
40      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
41      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
42      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
43      (boeyms r25110)
44
45    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
46      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
47      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
48      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
49
50    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
51
52    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
53      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
54
55    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
56      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
57
58    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
59   
60    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
61      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
62     
63    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
64      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
65      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
66      (jberry r25146)
67     
68    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
69         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
70         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
71         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
72           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
73           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
74   
75        Example:
76
77            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
78                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
79            }
80           
81        (jberry r25147)
82       
83    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
84      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
85   
86
87Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
88
89    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
90      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
91      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
92      it differently.
93
94    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
95      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
96      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
97      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
98      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
99
100    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
101      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
102      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
103
104    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
105
106    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
107
108    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
109      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
110
111    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
112
113    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
114
115    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
116      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
117      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
118
119    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
120      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
121
122    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
123      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
124   
125    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
126      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
127
128    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
129
130    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
131      (pguyot r24273).
132
133    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
134      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
135      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
136     
137    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
138      This work is in progress. (jberry)
139       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
140       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
141         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
142         
143    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
144      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
145
146    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
147      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
148     
149    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
150      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
151
152    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
153   
154    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
155
156Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
157
158    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
159      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
160      (jberry r24151).
161     
162    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
163      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
164      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
165      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
166      (pipping r24148).
167
168Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
169
170    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
171      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
172
173    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
174      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
175
176    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
177      for submitter information.
178      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
179        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
180        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
181            - PORTSRC
182            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
183            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
184          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
185       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
186
187    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
188      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
189     
190    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
191      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
192      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
193      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
194     
195    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
196   
197    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
198      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
199
200Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
201
202    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
203      (pipping in r23343).
204
205    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
206      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
207
208    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
209      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
210      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
211
212    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
213      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
214
215    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
216      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
217      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
218
219    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
220
221    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
222      r22313).
223
224    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
225      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
226      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
227      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
228
229    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
230      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
231
232    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
233      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
234
235    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
236      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
237
238    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
239      r23967)
240
241
242Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
243
244    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
245      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
246
247    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
248
249    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
250      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
251
252    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
253
254    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
255
256    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
257      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
258
259    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
260
261    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
262
263    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
264      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
265
266    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the the 'delete' command, while reworking it
267      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
268
269    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
270      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
271      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
272
273    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
274
275    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
276      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
277
278    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
279      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
280
281    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
282      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
283
284    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
285
286    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
287
288    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
289      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
290
291    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
292
293    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
294
295    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
296
297    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
298      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
299
300    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
301      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
302
303    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
304
305    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
306
307
308Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
309
310    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
311      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
312
313    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
314
315    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
316      code. (pguyot)
317
318    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
319      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
320
321    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
322      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
323
324    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
325      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
326      /usr/local. (pguyot)
327
328    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
329
330    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
331      (josh_root, blb)
332
333    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
334      are modified. (pguyot)
335   
336    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
337      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
338
339    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
340      variable. (pguyot)
341     
342    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
343      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
344      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
345
346Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
347
348    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
349
350    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
351      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
352
353    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
354      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
355      SVN. (pguyot)
356
357    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
358      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
359     
360    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
361      (jberry)
362
363    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
364      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
365
366    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
367   
368    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
369
370    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
371   
372    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
373       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
374       * mention interactive and batch modes
375       * document extensions to info command.
376   
377    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
378
379    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
380      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
381      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
382   
383Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
384
385    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
386      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
387      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
388
389    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
390      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
391
392    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
393      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
394
395    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
396   
397    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
398   
399    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
400      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
401
402    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
403      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
404   
405    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
406   
407    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
408      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
409   
410    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
411   
412    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
413      (jberry)
414
415    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
416      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
417      (landonf)
418   
419    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
420      installed. (jmpp)
421
422    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
423      project path. (pguyot)
424   
425    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
426      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
427
428    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
429      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
430   
431    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
432      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
433
434    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
435      (olegb)
436   
437    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
438      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
439
440    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
441      iterating). (jberry)
442
443    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
444      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
445      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
446
447    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
448   
449    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
450      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
451      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
452      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
453      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
454      shoot yourself. (jberry)
455
456    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
457      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
458   
459    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
460      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
461
462    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
463
464    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
465      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
466        several bug fixes.
467      * cleaned up the code.
468      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
469        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
470        reported creations).
471      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
472        overwritten.
473
474    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
475   
476    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
477      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
478      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
479   
480        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
481          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
482          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
483     
484        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
485          input following any commands given as arguments.
486         
487        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
488          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
489          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
490            #!/usr/bin/env portf
491           
492        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
493       
494        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
495       
496        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
497          interactive/batch mode.
498         
499        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
500       
501        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
502          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
503          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
504       
505    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
506      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
507      (jberry).
508   
509    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
510      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
511   
512    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
513      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
514      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
515   
516    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
517      (pguyot)
518
519    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
520   
521    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
522      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
523      (jberry)
524
525    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
526      MacOS X. (mww)
527     
528    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
529      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
530      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
531      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
532      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
533      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
534      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
535      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
536      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
537      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
538      (jberry) 2006-02-16
539     
540Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
541
542    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
543      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
544      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
545      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
546      fat, configure as follows:
547        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
548                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
549                                       
550    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
551      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
552      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
553
554Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
555
556    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
557      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
558      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
559        port uninstall vim @1.0
560      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
561      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
562
563    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
564      destroot, too. (mww)
565
566    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
567      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
568     
569    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
570      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
571      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
572     
573    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
574      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
575      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
576     
577    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
578      groups of ports.
579      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
580      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
581
582      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
583        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
584     
585      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
586      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
587      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
588      The selectors are:
589      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
590      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
591      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
592     
593    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
594      ports or groups of ports.
595      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
596     
597    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
598      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
599      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
600      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
601     
602    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
603      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
604     
605    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
606      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
607      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
608     
609    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
610      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
611      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
612      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
613      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
614      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
615
616    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
617      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
618      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
619
620    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
621      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
622
623    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
624      ones considered harmful (blb)
625
626    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
627      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
628
629    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
630      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
631
632    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
633        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
634          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
635        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
636          reports (pguyot)
637        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
638
639    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
640      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
641
642    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
643   
644    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
645      echo (the expanded arguments),
646      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
647      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
648      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
649      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
650      (jberry)
651     
652    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
653      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
654      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
655      in a similar fashion (jberry)
