7(unreleased)
8
9    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
10      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
11
12    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
13      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
14      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
15      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
16      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
17      (boeyms in r25310)
18
19Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry)
20
21    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
22
23Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
24
25    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
26
27    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
28      This allows information about variants to be displayed (eg. dependencies).
29      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
30      (eridius r25255).
31   
32    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
33
34    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
35      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
36      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
37
38    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
39      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
40
41    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
42      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
43      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
44      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
45      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
46      (boeyms r25110)
47
48    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
49      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
50      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
51      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
52
53    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
54
55    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
56      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
57
58    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
59      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
60
61    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
62   
63    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
64      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
65     
66    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
67      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
68      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
69      (jberry r25146)
70     
71    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
72         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
73         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
74         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
75           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
76           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
77   
78        Example:
79
80            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
81                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
82            }
83           
84        (jberry r25147)
85       
86    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
87      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
88   
89
90Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
91
92    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
93      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
94      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
95      it differently.
96
97    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
98      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
99      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
100      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
101      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
102
103    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
104      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
105      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
106
107    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
108
109    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
110
111    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
112      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
113
114    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
115
116    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
117
118    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
119      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
120      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
121
122    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
123      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
124
125    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
126      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
127   
128    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
129      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
130
131    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
132
133    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
134      (pguyot r24273).
135
136    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
137      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
138      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
139     
140    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
141      This work is in progress. (jberry)
142       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
143       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
144         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
145         
146    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
147      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
148
149    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
150      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
151     
152    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
153      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
154
155    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
156   
157    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
158
159Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
160
161    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
162      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
163      (jberry r24151).
164     
165    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
166      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
167      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
168      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
169      (pipping r24148).
170
171Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
172
173    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
174      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
175
176    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
177      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
178
179    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
180      for submitter information.
181      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
182        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
183        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
184            - PORTSRC
185            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
186            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
187          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
188       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
189
190    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
191      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
192     
193    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
194      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
195      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
196      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
197     
198    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
199   
200    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
201      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
202
203Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
204
205    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
206      (pipping in r23343).
207
208    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
209      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
210
211    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
212      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
213      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
214
215    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
216      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
217
218    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
219      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
220      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
221
222    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
223
224    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
225      r22313).
226
227    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
228      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
229      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
230      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
231
232    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
233      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
234
235    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
236      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
237
238    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
239      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
240
241    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
242      r23967)
243
244
245Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
246
247    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
248      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
249
250    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
251
252    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
253      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
254
255    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
256
257    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
258
259    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
260      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
261
262    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
263
264    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
265
266    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
267      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
268
269    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the the 'delete' command, while reworking it
270      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
271
272    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
273      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
274      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
275
276    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
277
278    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
279      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
280
281    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
282      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
283
284    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
285      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
286
287    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
288
289    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
290
291    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
292      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
293
294    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
295
296    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
297
298    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
299
300    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
301      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
302
303    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
304      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
305
306    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
307
308    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
309
310
311Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
312
313    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
314      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
315
316    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
317
318    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
319      code. (pguyot)
320
321    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
322      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
323
324    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
325      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
326
327    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
328      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
329      /usr/local. (pguyot)
330
331    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
332
333    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
334      (josh_root, blb)
335
336    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
337      are modified. (pguyot)
338   
339    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
340      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
341
342    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
343      variable. (pguyot)
344     
345    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
346      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
347      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
348
349Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
350
351    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
352
353    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
354      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
355
356    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
357      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
358      SVN. (pguyot)
359
360    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
361      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
362     
363    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
364      (jberry)
365
366    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
367      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
368
369    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
370   
371    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
372
373    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
374   
375    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
376       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
377       * mention interactive and batch modes
378       * document extensions to info command.
379   
380    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
381
382    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
383      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
384      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
385   
386Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
387
388    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
389      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
390      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
391
392    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
393      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
394
395    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
396      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
397
398    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
399   
400    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
401   
402    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
403      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
404
405    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
406      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
407   
408    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
409   
410    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
411      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
412   
413    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
414   
415    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
416      (jberry)
417
418    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
419      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
420      (landonf)
421   
422    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
423      installed. (jmpp)
424
425    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
426      project path. (pguyot)
427   
428    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
429      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
430
431    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
432      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
433   
434    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
435      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
436
437    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
438      (olegb)
439   
440    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
441      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
442
443    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
444      iterating). (jberry)
445
446    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
447      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
448      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
449
450    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
451   
452    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
453      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
454      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
455      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
456      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
457      shoot yourself. (jberry)
458
459    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
460      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
461   
462    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
463      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
464
465    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
466
467    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
468      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
469        several bug fixes.
470      * cleaned up the code.
471      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
472        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
473        reported creations).
474      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
475        overwritten.
476
477    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
478   
479    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
480      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
481      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
482   
483        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
484          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
485          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
486     
487        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
488          input following any commands given as arguments.
489         
490        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
491          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
492          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
493            #!/usr/bin/env portf
494           
495        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
496       
497        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
498       
499        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
500          interactive/batch mode.
501         
502        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
503       
504        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
505          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
506          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
507       
508    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
509      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
510      (jberry).
511   
512    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
513      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
514   
515    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
516      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
517      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
518   
519    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
520      (pguyot)
521
522    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
523   
524    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
525      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
526      (jberry)
527
528    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
529      MacOS X. (mww)
530     
531    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
532      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
533      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
534      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
535      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
536      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
537      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
538      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
539      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
540      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
541      (jberry) 2006-02-16
542     
543Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
544
545    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
546      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
547      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
548      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
549      fat, configure as follows:
550        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
551                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
552                                       
553    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
554      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
555      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
556
557Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
558
559    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
560      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
561      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
562        port uninstall vim @1.0
563      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
564      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
565
566    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
567      destroot, too. (mww)
568
569    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
570      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
571     
572    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
573      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
574      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
575     
576    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
577      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
578      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
579     
580    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
581      groups of ports.
582      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
583      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
584
585      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
586        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
587     
588      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
589      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
590      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
591      The selectors are:
592      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
593      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
594      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
595     
596    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
597      ports or groups of ports.
598      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
599     
600    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
601      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
602      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
603      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
604     
605    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
606      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
607     
608    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
609      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
610      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
611     
612    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
613      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
614      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
615      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
616      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
617      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
618
619    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
620      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
621      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
622
623    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
624      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
625
626    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
627      ones considered harmful (blb)
628
629    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
630      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
631
632    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
633      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
634
635    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
636        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
637          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
638        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
639          reports (pguyot)
640        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
641
642    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
643      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
644
645    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
646   
647    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
648      echo (the expanded arguments),
649      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
650      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
651      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
652      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
653      (jberry)
654     
655    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
656      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
657      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
658      in a similar fashion (jberry)
