46      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
47
48    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).

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