51
52    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).

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