53
54
55Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
56
57    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
58      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
59      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
60
61
62Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
63
64    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
65      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
66
67    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
68      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
69
70    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
71
72    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
73      (mww in r27199).
74
75    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
76
77    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
78
79    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
80
81    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
82      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
83
84    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
85
86    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
87
88    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
89
90
91Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
92
93    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
94      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
95      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
96      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
97      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
98
99    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
100
101    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
102
103    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
104      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
105      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
106      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
107      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
108
109    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
110
111    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
112      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
113
114    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
115
116    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
117      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
118
119    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
120      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
121      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
122      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
123      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
124      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
125
126    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
127
128    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
129
130    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
131
132    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
133      to detect problems between required and negated variants
134      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
135
136    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
137      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
138      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
139      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
140   
141    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
142      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
143
144    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
145      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
146      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
147
148    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
149      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
150         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
151         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
152      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
153      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
154      (jberry r25795).
155
156    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
157
158    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
159      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
160      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
161
162    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
163      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
164
165    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
166      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
167
168    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
169      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
170      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
171      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
172      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
173      (boeyms in r25310)
174
175Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
176
177    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
178
179Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
180
181    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
182
183    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
184      This allows information about variants to be displayed (eg. dependencies).
185      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
186      (eridius r25255).
187   
188    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
189
190    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
191      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
192      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
193
194    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
195      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
196
197    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
198      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
199      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
200      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
201      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
202      (boeyms r25110)
203
204    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
205      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
206      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
207      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
208
209    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
210
211    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
212      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
213
214    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
215      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
216
217    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
218   
219    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
220      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
221     
222    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
223      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
224      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
225      (jberry r25146)
226     
227    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
228         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
229         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
230         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
231           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
232           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
233   
234        Example:
235
236            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
237                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
238            }
239           
240        (jberry r25147)
241       
242    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
243      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
244   
245
246Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
247
248    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
249      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
250      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
251      it differently.
252
253    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
254      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
255      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
256      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
257      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
258
259    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
260      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
261      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
262
263    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
264
265    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
266
267    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
268      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
269
270    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
271
272    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
273
274    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
275      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
276      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
277
278    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
279      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
280
281    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
282      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
283   
284    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
285      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
286
287    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
288
289    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
290      (pguyot r24273).
291
292    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
293      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
294      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
295     
296    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
297      This work is in progress. (jberry)
298       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
299       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
300         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
301         
302    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
303      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
304
305    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
306      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
307     
308    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
309      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
310
311    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
312   
313    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
314
315Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
316
317    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
318      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
319      (jberry r24151).
320     
321    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
322      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
323      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
324      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
325      (pipping r24148).
326
327Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
328
329    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
330      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
331
332    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
333      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
334
335    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
336      for submitter information.
337      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
338        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
339        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
340            - PORTSRC
341            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
342            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
343          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
344       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
345
346    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
347      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
348     
349    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
350      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
351      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
352      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
353     
354    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
355   
356    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
357      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
358
359Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
360
361    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
362      (pipping in r23343).
363
364    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
365      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
366
367    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
368      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
369      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
370
371    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
372      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
373
374    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
375      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
376      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
377
378    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
379
380    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
381      r22313).
382
383    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
384      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
385      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
386      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
387
388    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
389      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
390
391    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
392      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
393
394    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
395      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
396
397    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
398      r23967)
399
400
401Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
402
403    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
404      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
405
406    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
407
408    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
409      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
410
411    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
412
413    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
414
415    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
416      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
417
418    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
419
420    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
421
422    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
423      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
424
425    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the the 'delete' command, while reworking it
426      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
427
428    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
429      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
430      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
431
432    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
433
434    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
435      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
436
437    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
438      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
439
440    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
441      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
442
443    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
444
445    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
446
447    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
448      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
449
450    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
451
452    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
453
454    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
455
456    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
457      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
458
459    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
460      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
461
462    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
463
464    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
465
466
467Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
468
469    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
470      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
471
472    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
473
474    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
475      code. (pguyot)
476
477    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
478      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
479
480    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
481      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
482
483    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
484      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
485      /usr/local. (pguyot)
486
487    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
488
489    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
490      (josh_root, blb)
491
492    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
493      are modified. (pguyot)
494   
495    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
496      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
497
498    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
499      variable. (pguyot)
500     
501    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
502      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
503      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
504
505Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
506
507    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
508
509    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
510      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
511
512    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
513      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
514      SVN. (pguyot)
515
516    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
517      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
518     
519    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
520      (jberry)
521
522    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
523      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
524
525    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
526   
527    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
528
529    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
530   
531    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
532       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
533       * mention interactive and batch modes
534       * document extensions to info command.
535   
536    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
537
538    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
539      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
540      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
541   
542Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
543
544    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
545      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
546      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
547
548    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
549      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
550
551    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
552      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
553
554    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
555   
556    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
557   
558    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
559      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
560
561    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
562      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
563   
564    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
565   
566    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
567      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
568   
569    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
570   
571    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
572      (jberry)
573
574    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
575      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
576      (landonf)
577   
578    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
579      installed. (jmpp)
580
581    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
582      project path. (pguyot)
583   
584    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
585      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
586
587    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
588      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
589   
590    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
591      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
592
593    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
594      (olegb)
595   
596    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
597      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
598
599    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
600      iterating). (jberry)
601
602    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
603      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
604      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
605
606    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
607   
608    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
609      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
610      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
611      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
612      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
613      shoot yourself. (jberry)
614
615    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
616      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
617   
618    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
619      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
620
621    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
622
623    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
624      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
625        several bug fixes.
626      * cleaned up the code.
627      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
628        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
629        reported creations).
630      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
631        overwritten.
632
633    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
634   
635    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
636      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
637      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
638   
639        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
640          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
641          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
642     
643        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
644          input following any commands given as arguments.
645         
646        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
647          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
648          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
649            #!/usr/bin/env portf
650           
651        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
652       
653        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
654       
655        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
656          interactive/batch mode.
657         
658        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
659       
660        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
661          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
662          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
663       
664    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
665      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
666      (jberry).
667   
668    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
669      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
670   
671    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
672      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
673      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
674   
675    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
676      (pguyot)
677
678    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
679   
680    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
681      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
682      (jberry)
683
684    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
685      MacOS X. (mww)
686     
687    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
688      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
689      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
690      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
691      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
692      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
693      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
694      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
695      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
696      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
697      (jberry) 2006-02-16
698     
699Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
700
701    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
702      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
703      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
704      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
705      fat, configure as follows:
706        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
707                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
708                                       
709    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
710      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
711      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
712
713Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
714
715    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
716      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
717      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
718        port uninstall vim @1.0
719      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
720      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
721
722    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
723      destroot, too. (mww)
724
725    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
726      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
727     
728    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
729      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
730      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
731     
732    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
733      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
734      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
735     
736    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
737      groups of ports.
738      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
739      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
740
741      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
742        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
743     
744      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
745      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
746      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
747      The selectors are:
748      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
749      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
750      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
751     
752    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
753      ports or groups of ports.
754      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
755     
756    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
757      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
758      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
759      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
760     
761    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
762      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
763     
764    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
765      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
766      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
767     
768    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
769      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
770      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
771      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
772      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
773      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
774
775    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
776      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
777      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
778
779    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
780      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
781
782    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
783      ones considered harmful (blb)
784
785    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
786      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
787
788    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
789      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
790
791    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
792        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
793          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
794        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
795          reports (pguyot)
796        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
797
798    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
799      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
800
801    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
802   
803    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
804      echo (the expanded arguments),
805      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
806      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
807      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
808      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
809      (jberry)
810     
811    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
812      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
813      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
814      in a similar fashion (jberry)
