9    - add configure.objc/objcflags for Objective-C
11    - add optional build.nice (0) and (1) modifiers (afb in r28634 & r28673)
13    - make tclobjc1.0 compile with GNUstep and NXConstantString class (afb in r28668)
15    - fix bsdmake/gnumake defaults for FreeBSD and Linux platforms (afb in r28660)
17    - port lint command, for Portfile verification (afb, r28170)
19    - add configure.macosx_deployment_target for configure flags
21    - add configure.javac/classpath for Java
23    - add configure.fflags/fcflags/f90flags for Fortran flags
25    - Mark "python" group code as deprecated
27    - Add group code for Python 3.0
29    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
31    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
32      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
34    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
36    - Chris Pickel's GSoC2007 work: registry2.0 & cregistry (mainly r27518 & r27520)
38    - Eugene Pimenov's GSoC2007 work: Trace lib on unix sockets (r26682).
40    - Elias Pipping's GSoC2007 work: merge.rb on his personal /users/pipping svn dir.
43Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
45    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
46      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
47      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
50Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
52    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/,
53      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
55    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
56      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
58    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
60    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
61      (mww in r27199).
63    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
65    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
67    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
69    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
70      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
72    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
74    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
76    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
79Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
81    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
82      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
83      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
84      and hosted at a temporary location,, all
85      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
87    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
89    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
91    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
92      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
93      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
94      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
95      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
97    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
99    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
100      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
102    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
104    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
105      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
107    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
108      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
109      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
110      Read and
111 for
112      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
114    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
116    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
118    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
120    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
121      to detect problems between required and negated variants
122      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
124    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
125      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
126      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
127      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
129    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
130      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
132    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
133      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
134      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
136    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
137      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
138         (1) username ==> implies
139         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
140      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
141      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
142      (jberry r25795).
144    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
146    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
147      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
148      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
150    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
151      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
153    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
154      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
156    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
157      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
158      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
159      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
160      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
161      (boeyms in r25310)
163Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
165    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
167Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
169    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
171    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
172      This allows information about variants to be displayed (eg. dependencies).
173      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
174      (eridius r25255).
176    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
178    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
179      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
180      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
182    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
183      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
185    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
186      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
187      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
188      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
189      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
190      (boeyms r25110)
192    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
193      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
194      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
195      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
197    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
199    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
200      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
202    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
203      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
205    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
207    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
208      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
210    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
211      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
212      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
213      (jberry r25146)
215    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
216         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
217         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
218         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
219           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
220           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
222        Example:
224            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
225                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
226            }
228        (jberry r25147)
230    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
231      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
234Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
236    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
237      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
238      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
239      it differently.
241    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
242      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
243      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
244      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
245      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
247    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
248      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
249      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
251    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
253    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
255    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
256      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
258    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
260    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
262    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
263      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
264      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
266    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
267      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
269    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
270      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
272    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
273      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
275    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
277    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
278      (pguyot r24273).
280    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
281      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
282      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
284    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
285      This work is in progress. (jberry)
286       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
287       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
288         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
290    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
291      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
293    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
294      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
296    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
297      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
299    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
301    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
303Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
305    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
306      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
307      (jberry r24151).
309    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
310      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
311      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
312      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
313      (pipping r24148).
315Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
317    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
318      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
320    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
321      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
323    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
324      for submitter information.
325      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
326        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
327        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
328            - PORTSRC
329            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
330            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
331          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
332       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
334    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
335      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
337    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
338      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
339      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
340      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
342    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
344    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
345      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
347Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
349    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
350      (pipping in r23343).
352    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
353      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
355    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
356      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
357      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
359    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
360      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
362    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
363      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
364      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
366    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
368    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
369      r22313).
371    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
372 checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
373      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
374      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
376    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
377      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
379    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
380      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
382    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
383      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
385    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
386      r23967)
389Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
391    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
392      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
394    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
396    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
397      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
399    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
401    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
403    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
404      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
406    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
408    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
410    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
411      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
413    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the the 'delete' command, while reworking it
414      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
416    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
417      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
418      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
420    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
422    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
423      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
425    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
426      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
428    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
429      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
431    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
433    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
435    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
436      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
438    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
440    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
442    - Set back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
444    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
445      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
447    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
448      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
450    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
452    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
455Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
457    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
458      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
460    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
462    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
463      code. (pguyot)
465    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
466      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
468    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
469      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
471    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
472      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
473      /usr/local. (pguyot)
475    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
477    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
478      (josh_root, blb)
480    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
481      are modified. (pguyot)
483    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
484      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
486    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
487      variable. (pguyot)
489    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
490      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
491      be using the domain in the future.
493Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
495    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
497    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
498      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
500    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
501      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
502      SVN. (pguyot)
504    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
505      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
507    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
508      (jberry)
510    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
511      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
513    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
515    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
517    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
519    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
520       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
521       * mention interactive and batch modes
522       * document extensions to info command.
524    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
526    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
527      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
528      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
530Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
532    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
533      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
534      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
536    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
537      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
539    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
540      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
542    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
544    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
546    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
547      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
549    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
550      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
552    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
554    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
555      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
557    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
559    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
560      (jberry)
562    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
563      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
564      (landonf)
566    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
567      installed. (jmpp)
569    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
570      project path. (pguyot)
572    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
573      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
575    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
576      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
578    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
579      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
581    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
582      (olegb)
584    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
585      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
587    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
588      iterating). (jberry)
590    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
591      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
592      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
594    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
596    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
597      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
598      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
599      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
600      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
601      shoot yourself. (jberry)
603    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
604      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
606    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
607      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
609    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
611    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
612      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
613        several bug fixes.
614      * cleaned up the code.
615      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
616        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
617        reported creations).
618      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
619        overwritten.
621    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
623    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
624      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
625      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
627        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
628          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
629          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
631        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
632          input following any commands given as arguments.
634        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
635          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
636          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
637            #!/usr/bin/env portf
639        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
641        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
643        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
644          interactive/batch mode.
646        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
648        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
649          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
650          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
652    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
653      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
654      (jberry).
656    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
657      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
659    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
660      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
661      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
663    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
664      (pguyot)
666    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
668    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
669      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
670      (jberry)
672    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
673      MacOS X. (mww)
675    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
676      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
677      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
678      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
679      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
680      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
681      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
682      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
683      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
684      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
685      (jberry) 2006-02-16
687Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
689    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
690      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
691      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
692      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
693      fat, configure as follows:
694        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
695                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
697    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
698      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
699      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
701Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
703    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
704      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
705      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
706        port uninstall vim @1.0
707      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
708      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
710    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
711      destroot, too. (mww)
713    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
714      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
716    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
717      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
718      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
720    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
721      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
722      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
724    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
725      groups of ports.
726      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
727      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
729      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
730        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
732      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
733      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
734      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
735      The selectors are:
736      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
737      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
738      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
740    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
741      ports or groups of ports.
742      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
744    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
745      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
746      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
747      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
749    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
750      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
752    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
753      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
754      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
756    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
757      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
758      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
759      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
760      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
761      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
763    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
764      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
765      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
767    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
768      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
770    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
771      ones considered harmful (blb)
773    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
774      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
776    - Addition of the script that takes care of the automated
777      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
779    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
780        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
781          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
782        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
783          reports (pguyot)
784        - fixes for the script (jkh)
786    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
787      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
789    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
791    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
792      echo (the expanded arguments),
793      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
794      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
795      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
796      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
797      (jberry)
799    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change
800      to This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
801      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
802      in a similar fashion (jberry)
805Release 1.1:
807    (information not here).
