68
69
70Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
71
72    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
73      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
74      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
75
76
77Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
78
79    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
80      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
81
82    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
83      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
84
85    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
86
87    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
88      (mww in r27199).
89
90    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
91
92    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
93
94    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
95
96    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
97      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
98
99    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
100
101    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
102
103    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
104
105
106Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
107
108    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
109      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
110      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
111      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
112      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
113
114    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
115
116    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
117
118    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
119      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
120      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
121      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
122      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
123
124    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
125
126    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
127      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
128
129    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
130
131    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
132      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
133
134    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
135      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
136      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
137      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
138      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
139      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
140
141    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
142
143    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
144
145    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
146
147    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
148      to detect problems between required and negated variants
149      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
150
151    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
152      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
153      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
154      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
155   
156    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
157      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
158
159    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
160      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
161      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
162
163    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
164      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
165         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
166         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
167      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
168      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
169      (jberry r25795).
170
171    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
172
173    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
174      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
175      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
176
177    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
178      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
179
180    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
181      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
182
183    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
184      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
185      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
186      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
187      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
188      (boeyms in r25310)
189
190Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
191
192    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
193
194Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
195
196    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
197
198    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
199      This allows information about variants to be displayed (eg. dependencies).
200      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
201      (eridius r25255).
202   
203    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
204
205    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
206      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
207      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
208
209    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
210      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
211
212    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
213      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
214      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
215      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
216      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
217      (boeyms r25110)
218
219    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
220      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
221      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
222      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
223
224    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
225
226    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
227      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
228
229    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
230      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
231
232    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
233   
234    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
235      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
236     
237    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
238      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
239      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
240      (jberry r25146)
241     
242    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
243         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
244         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
245         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
246           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
247           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
248   
249        Example:
250
251            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
252                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
253            }
254           
255        (jberry r25147)
256       
257    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
258      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
259   
260
261Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
262
263    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
264      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
265      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
266      it differently.
267
268    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
269      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
270      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
271      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
272      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
273
274    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
275      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
276      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
277
278    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
279
280    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
281
282    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
283      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
284
285    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
286
287    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
288
289    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
290      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
291      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
292
293    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
294      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
295
296    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
297      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
298   
299    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
300      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
301
302    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
303
304    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
305      (pguyot r24273).
306
307    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
308      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
309      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
310     
311    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
312      This work is in progress. (jberry)
313       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
314       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
315         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
316         
317    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
318      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
319
320    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
321      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
322     
323    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
324      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
325
326    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
327   
328    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
329
330Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
331
332    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
333      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
334      (jberry r24151).
335     
336    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
337      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
338      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
339      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
340      (pipping r24148).
341
342Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
343
344    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
345      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
346
347    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
348      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
349
350    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
351      for submitter information.
352      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
353        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
354        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
355            - PORTSRC
356            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
357            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
358          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
359       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
360
361    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
362      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
363     
364    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
365      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
366      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
367      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
368     
369    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
370   
371    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
372      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
373
374Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
375
376    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
377      (pipping in r23343).
378
379    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
380      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
381
382    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
383      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
384      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
385
386    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
387      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
388
389    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
390      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
391      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
392
393    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
394
395    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
396      r22313).
397
398    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
399      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
400      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
401      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
402
403    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
404      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
405
406    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
407      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
408
409    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
410      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
411
412    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
413      r23967)
414
415
416Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
417
418    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
419      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
420
421    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
422
423    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
424      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
425
426    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
427
428    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
429
430    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
431      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
432
433    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
434
435    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
436
437    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
438      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
439
440    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the the 'delete' command, while reworking it
441      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
442
443    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
444      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
445      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
446
447    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
448
449    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
450      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
451
452    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
453      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
454
455    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
456      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
457
458    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
459
460    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
461
462    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
463      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
464
465    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
466
467    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
468
469    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
470
471    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
472      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
473
474    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
475      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
476
477    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
478
479    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
480
481
482Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
483
484    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
485      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
486
487    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
488
489    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
490      code. (pguyot)
491
492    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
493      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
494
495    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
496      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
497
498    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
499      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
500      /usr/local. (pguyot)
501
502    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
503
504    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
505      (josh_root, blb)
506
507    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
508      are modified. (pguyot)
509   
510    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
511      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
512
513    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
514      variable. (pguyot)
515     
516    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
517      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
518      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
519
520Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
521
522    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
523
524    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
525      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
526
527    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
528      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
529      SVN. (pguyot)
530
531    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
532      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
533     
534    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
535      (jberry)
536
537    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
538      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
539
540    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
541   
542    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
543
544    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
545   
546    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
547       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
548       * mention interactive and batch modes
549       * document extensions to info command.
550   
551    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
552
553    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
554      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
555      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
556   
557Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
558
559    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
560      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
561      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
562
563    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
564      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
565
566    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
567      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
568
569    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
570   
571    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
572   
573    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
574      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
575
576    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
577      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
578   
579    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
580   
581    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
582      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
583   
584    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
585   
586    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
587      (jberry)
588
589    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
590      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
591      (landonf)
592   
593    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
594      installed. (jmpp)
595
596    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
597      project path. (pguyot)
598   
599    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
600      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
601
602    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
603      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
604   
605    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
606      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
607
608    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
609      (olegb)
610   
611    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
612      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
613
614    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
615      iterating). (jberry)
616
617    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
618      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
619      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
620
621    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
622   
623    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
624      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
625      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
626      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
627      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
628      shoot yourself. (jberry)
629
630    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
631      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
632   
633    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
634      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
635
636    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
637
638    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
639      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
640        several bug fixes.
641      * cleaned up the code.
642      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
643        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
644        reported creations).
645      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
646        overwritten.
647
648    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
649   
650    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
651      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
652      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
653   
654        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
655          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
656          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
657     
658        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
659          input following any commands given as arguments.
660         
661        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
662          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
663          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
664            #!/usr/bin/env portf
665           
666        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
667       
668        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
669       
670        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
671          interactive/batch mode.
672         
673        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
674       
675        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
676          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
677          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
678       
679    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
680      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
681      (jberry).
682   
683    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
684      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
685   
686    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
687      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
688      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
689   
690    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
691      (pguyot)
692
693    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
694   
695    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
696      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
697      (jberry)
698
699    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
700      MacOS X. (mww)
701     
702    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
703      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
704      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
705      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
706      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
707      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
708      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
709      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
710      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
711      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
712      (jberry) 2006-02-16
713     
714Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
715
716    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
717      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
718      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
719      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
720      fat, configure as follows:
721        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
722                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
723                                       
724    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
725      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
726      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
727
728Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
729
730    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
731      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
732      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
733        port uninstall vim @1.0
734      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
735      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
736
737    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
738      destroot, too. (mww)
739
740    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
741      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
742     
743    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
744      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
745      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
746     
747    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
748      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
749      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
750     
751    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
752      groups of ports.
753      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
754      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
755
756      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
757        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
758     
759      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
760      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
761      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
762      The selectors are:
763      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
764      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
765      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
766     
767    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
768      ports or groups of ports.
769      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
770     
771    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
772      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
773      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
774      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
775     
776    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
777      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
778     
779    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
780      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
781      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
782     
783    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
784      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
785      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
786      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
787      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
788      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
789
790    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
791      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
792      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
793
794    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
795      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
796
797    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
798      ones considered harmful (blb)
799
800    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
801      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
802
803    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
804      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
805
806    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
807        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
808          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
809        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
810          reports (pguyot)
811        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
812
813    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
814      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
815
816    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
817   
818    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
819      echo (the expanded arguments),
820      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
821      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
822      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
823      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
824      (jberry)
825     
826    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
