6
7Release 1.7.0 (unreleased):
8    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
9
10    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
11
12    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
13
14    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
15      --nitpick is used (#14799)
16
17    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
18
19    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
20
21    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
22      phases (#11897)
23
24    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
25      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
26
27    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
28      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
29      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
30      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
31
32    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
33      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
34      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
35      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
36      in 38683)
37
38    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
39
40    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
41      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
42      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
43
44    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
45      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
46      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
47      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, 37621)
48
49    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
50      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
51      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
52      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
53
54    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
55      (#15577, afb in r37501)
56
57    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
58
59    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
60      running (raimue)
61
62    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
63      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
64      jmr in r37217, 37255)
65
66    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
67      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
68      r37121)
69
70    - Stopped 'port -R upgrade' from processing more ports than it should, and
71      from processing ports multiple times. (#10827, jmr in r37046)
72
73    - Don't include build.nice and build.jobs in destroot.cmd (#15295)
74
75    - The default universal variant is no longer added when we know it won't
76      work. (#12170, jmr in r36764)
77
78    - During upgrade, if the latest installed version of a port is not active,
79      the currently active version (if any) is now deactivated before trying
80      to activate the latest version. (#12013, jmr in r36762)
81
82    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is
83      inactive and there is at least one other version of the same port
84      installed (#11501, jmr in r36747)
85
86    - Duplicate entries can no longer build up in the dependency map (#8763,
87      jmr in r36745)
88
89    - In image mode, dependencies are no longer treated as being satisfied
90      when the satisfying port is not active (#7361, jmr in r36735)
91
92    - Fixed a bug where upgrade could create too many nested subdirectories
93      in distpath, archive.destpath and unarchive.srcpath (#11971, jmr in
94      r36679, r36687, r36688)
95
96    - Declaring a dependency on a nonexistent port now always causes an error
97      (#10768, jmr in r36648)
98
99    - Explicitly use unsetenv(3) on all environment variables (#13930, #16010,
100      #16233)
101
102    - Make the included tclthread compile on Leopard if configured (#13495)
103
104    - Allow distfiles to be disk images with "use_dmg yes" port option (#13509,
105      ryandesign in r36708)
106
107    - ruby.setup now takes a type 'fetch' to just fetch/extract (eridius in r35773)
108
109    - Fetch now prefers mirrors with lower ping times (#14891, jmr in r35748,
110      r35806, r35808)
111
112    - Fetching of daily snapshot tarballs of the ports tree as an alternative to rsync
113      (raimue in r35647, r35648)
114
115    - port uninstall now takes --recursive to uninstall all dependents (#14637, eridius in r34977)
116
117    - New fetch.type git (#14232, eridius in r34875)
118
119    - fixed "port mdmg" getting block size wrong for the disk image (#13968, afb in r34844)
120
121    - always set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, to avoid bugs with older glibtool (afb in r34541)
122
123    - port lint now checks all dependencies so that the ports actually exist (#14380)
124
125    - added target_state to avoid the need for privileges for lint/livecheck (#13458)
126
127    - Overhauled output for port info/deps/dependents/search (raimue in
128      r34354, r34371, r34391, r34395, r34402, r34420)
129
130    - Revert the default +universal MDT/SDK to 10.4/10.4u on Tiger and 10.5/10.5 on Leopard
131
132    - port lint shouldn't require variable master_sites for fetch.type != standard (#14377)
133
134    - Add "tcldoc" documentation comments and "tcldox" Doxyfile for doxygen (#12048)
135
136    - Add --pretend and --nosync flags to selfupdate (raimue in r33938, r33939,
137      r33940, 33941)
138
139    - Work around autoconf X11 detection bugs on darwin (afb in r33717)
140
141    - Fix bugs with X11 lib detection on Leopard (#14089, afb in r33716)
142
143    - Add configure.{optflags,m32,m64,march,mtune} (afb in r33503, r33599)
144
145    - Add applications_dir and frameworks_dir configuration (r33499, r33722)
146
147    - Remove some hardcoded paths (such as /usr/X11R6, /usr/bin/install)
148
149    - Add configure.{universal_target,universal_sysroot,universal_archs} (afb in r33478).
150
151    - Change default +universal platform back to: 10.4/10.4u.sdk/i386 ppc (r33087, r33107).
152
153    - Add `port platform` info target that outputs current platform (#12302, afb in r32724).
154
155    - Enable 64 bit environment, ppc64 x86_64, for all +universal builds (mww in r32194).
156
157    - Add 'merge' function for merging multiple (single arch) destroots into one (universal)
158      destroot (mww in r31954).
159
160    - If checksum is mismatched, and in verbose mode, present a corrected pre-fabricated checksum statement
161      to make it easy to update a port (jberry in r32441).
162
163    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_prefix"" runtime error on Panther
164      (eridius in r32525).
165
166    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_channels"" runtime error on Panther
167      (eridius in r32514).
168
169    - "port lint" now recognizes non-canonical modelines (afb in r32480).
170
171    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
172
173    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
174      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_vesion (jmpp in r32353).
175
176    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents
177      (jmpp in r32336).
178
179    - Fixed a Panther build failure due to missing sqlite headers (jmpp in r32212).
180
181    - Fixed a build failure by passing the base/src/cregistry/cregistry.a archive through ranlib (jmpp in r32105).
182
183
184Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
185
186    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
187      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
188      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
189      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
190
191    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
192      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
193
194    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
195
196    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
197      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
198
199    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
200      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
201      (jberry r31139, r31140).
202
203    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
204      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
205      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
206      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).
207
208    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
209
210    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
211      multiple files (mww in r31028)
212
213    - add optional configure.pipe output (afb in r29604 & r30824)
214
215    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)
216
217    - add configure.[awk|bison|pkg_config|pkg_config_path] (r30761)
218
219    - Auto-mode for number of parallel build threads (if number of jobs is set to "0") (r30739)
220
221    - Add option use_parallel_build [yes|no] to declare if a port can be built in parallel (r30714).
222
223    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).
224
225    - Display warnings when using old versions of Mac OS X and Xcode Tools
226      (#12794, afb in r30338 & r30477)
227
228    - Remove configure.macosx_deployment_target, add global macosx_deployment_target
229      (eridius in r30396).
230
231    - add support for LZMA compression, for making .tlz archives (afb in r30307)
232
233    - add configure.[perl|python|ruby] for interpreters, .install for avoiding breakage
234      due to coreutils, .libs
235
236    - added startupitem.netchange boolean flag (#12931, N_Ox in r30086).
237
238    - added generic GNU livecheck (N_Ox in r29812).
239
240    - fixed bug where all .mpkg packages were missing their welcome page (afb in r29517)
241
242    - better defaults for implicit ui_channels behaviour (eridius in r29498).
243
244    - prevent creating PKG packages with /etc or /var or /tmp (#2102, afb in r29445)
245
246    - add optional configure.ccache and configure.distcc filters (#5390, afb in r29438)
247
248    - Explicitly sort fs-traverse so it behaves predictably on Linux systems
249      (#12622, eridius in r29412).
250
251    - add configure.objc/objcflags for Objective-C
252
253    - add optional build.nice (0) and build.jobs (1) modifiers (afb in r28634 & r28673)
254
255    - make tclobjc1.0 compile with GNUstep and NXConstantString class (afb in r28668)
256
257    - fix bsdmake/gnumake defaults for FreeBSD and Linux platforms (afb in r28660)
258
259    - port lint command, for Portfile verification (#463, afb in r28170)
260
261    - add configure.macosx_deployment_target for configure flags
262
263    - add configure.javac/classpath for Java
264
265    - add configure.fflags/fcflags/f90flags for Fortran flags
266
267    - Mark "python" group code as deprecated
268
269    - Add group code for Python 3.0
270
271    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
272
273    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
274      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
275
276    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
277
278    - Chris Pickel's GSoC2007 work: registry2.0 & cregistry (mainly r27518 & r27520)
279
280    - Eugene Pimenov's GSoC2007 work: Trace lib on unix sockets (r26682).
281
282    - Elias Pipping's GSoC2007 work: merge.rb on his personal /users/pipping svn dir.
283
284
285Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
286
287    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
288      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
289      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
290
291
292Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
293
294    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
295      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
296
297    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
298      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
299
300    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
301
302    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
303      (mww in r27199).
304
305    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
306
307    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
308
309    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
310
311    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
312      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
313
314    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
315
316    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
317
318    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
319
320
321Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
322
323    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
324      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
325      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
326      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
327      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
328
329    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
330
331    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
332
333    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
334      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
335      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
336      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
337      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
338
339    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
340
341    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
342      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
343
344    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
345
346    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
347      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
348
349    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
350      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
351      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
352      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
353      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
354      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
355
356    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
357
358    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
359
360    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
361
362    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
363      to detect problems between required and negated variants
364      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
365
366    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
367      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
368      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
369      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
370
371    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
372      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
373
374    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
375      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
376      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
377
378    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
379      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
380         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
381         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
382      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
383      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
384      (jberry r25795).
385
386    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
387
388    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
389      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
390      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
391
392    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
393      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
394
395    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
396      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
397
398    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
399      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
400      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
401      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
402      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
403      (boeyms in r25310)
404
405Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
406
407    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
408
409Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
410
411    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
412
413    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
414      This allows information about variants to be displayed (eg. dependencies).
415      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
416      (eridius r25255).
417
418    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
419
420    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
421      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
422      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
423
424    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
425      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
426
427    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
428      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
429      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
430      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
431      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
432      (boeyms r25110)
433
434    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
435      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
436      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
437      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
438
439    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
440
441    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
442      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
443
444    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
445      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
446
447    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
448
449    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
450      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
451
452    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
453      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
454      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
455      (jberry r25146)
456
457    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
458         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
459         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
460         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
461           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
462           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
463
464        Example:
465
466            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
467                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
468            }
469
470        (jberry r25147)
471
472    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
473      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
474
475
476Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
477
478    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
479      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
480      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
481      it differently.
482
483    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
484      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
485      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
486      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
487      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
488
489    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
490      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
491      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
492
493    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
494
495    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
496
497    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
498      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
499
500    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
501
502    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
503
504    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
505      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
506      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
507
508    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
509      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
510
511    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
512      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
513
514    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
515      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
516
517    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
518
519    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
520      (pguyot r24273).
521
522    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
523      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
524      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
525
526    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
527      This work is in progress. (jberry)
528       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
529       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
530         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
531
532    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
533      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
534
535    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
536      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
537
538    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
539      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
540
541    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
542
543    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
544
545Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
546
547    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
548      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
549      (jberry r24151).
550
551    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
552      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
553      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
554      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
555      (pipping r24148).
556
557Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
558
559    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
560      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
561
562    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
563      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
564
565    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
566      for submitter information.
567      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
568        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
569        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
570            - PORTSRC
571            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
572            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
573          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
574       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
575
576    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
577      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
578
579    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
580      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
581      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
582      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
583
584    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
585
586    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
587      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
588
589Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
590
591    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
592      (pipping in r23343).
593
594    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
595      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
596
597    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
598      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
599      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
600
601    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
602      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
603
604    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
605      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
606      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
607
608    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
609
610    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
611      r22313).
612
613    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
614      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
615      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
616      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
617
618    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
619      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
620
621    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
622      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
623
624    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
625      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
626
627    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
628      r23967)
629
630
631Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
632
633    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
634      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
635
636    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
637
638    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
639      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
640
641    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
642
643    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
644
645    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
646      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
647
648    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
649
650    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
651
652    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
653      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
654
655    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
656      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
657
658    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
659      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
660      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
661
662    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
663
664    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
665      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
666
667    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
668      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
669
670    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
671      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
672
673    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
674
675    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
676
677    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
678      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
679
680    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
681
682    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
683
684    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
685
686    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
687      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
688
689    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
690      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
691
692    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
693
694    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
695
696
697Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
698
699    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
700      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
701
702    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
703
704    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
705      code. (pguyot)
706
707    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
708      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
709
710    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
711      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
712
713    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
714      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
715      /usr/local. (pguyot)
716
717    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
718
719    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
720      (josh_root, blb)
721
722    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
723      are modified. (pguyot)
724
725    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
726      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
727
728    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
729      variable. (pguyot)
730
731    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
732      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
733      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
734
735Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
736
737    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
738
739    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
740      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
741
742    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
743      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
744      SVN. (pguyot)
745
746    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
747      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
748
749    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
750      (jberry)
751
752    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
753      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
754
755    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
756
757    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
758
759    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
760
761    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
762       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
763       * mention interactive and batch modes
764       * document extensions to info command.
765
766    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
767
768    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
769      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
770      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
771
772Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
773
774    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
775      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
776      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
777
778    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
779      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
780
781    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
782      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
783
784    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
785
786    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
787
788    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
789      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
790
791    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
792      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
793
794    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
795
796    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
797      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
798
799    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
800
801    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
802      (jberry)
803
804    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
805      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
806      (landonf)
807
808    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
809      installed. (jmpp)
810
811    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
812      project path. (pguyot)
813
814    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
815      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
816
817    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
818      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
819
820    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
821      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
822
823    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
824      (olegb)
825
826    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
827      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
828
829    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
830      iterating). (jberry)
831
832    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
833      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
834      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
835
836    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
837
838    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
839      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
840      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
841      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
842      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
843      shoot yourself. (jberry)
844
845    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
846      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
847
848    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
849      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
850
851    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
852
853    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
854      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
855        several bug fixes.
856      * cleaned up the code.
857      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
858        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
859        reported creations).
860      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
861        overwritten.
862
863    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
864
865    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
866      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
867      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
868
869        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
870          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
871          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
872
873        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
874          input following any commands given as arguments.
875
876        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
877          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
878          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
879            #!/usr/bin/env portf
880
881        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
882
883        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
884
885        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
886          interactive/batch mode.
887
888        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
889
890        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
891          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
892          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
893
894    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
895      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
896      (jberry).
897
898    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
899      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
900
901    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
902      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
903      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
904
905    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
906      (pguyot)
907
908    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
909
910    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
911      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
912      (jberry)
913
914    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
915      MacOS X. (mww)
916
917    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
918      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
919      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
920      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
921      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
922      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
923      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
924      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
925      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
926      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.

928
929Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
930
931    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
932      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
933      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
934      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
935      fat, configure as follows:
936        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
937                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
938
939    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
940      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
941      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
942
943Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
944
945    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
946      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
947      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
948        port uninstall vim @1.0
949      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
950      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
951
952    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
953      destroot, too. (mww)
954
955    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
956      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
957
958    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
959      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
960      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
961
962    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
963      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
964      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
965
966    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
967      groups of ports.
968      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
969      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
970
971      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
972        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
973
974      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
975      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
976      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
977      The selectors are:
978      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
979      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
980      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
981
982    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
983      ports or groups of ports.
984      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
985
986    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
987      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
988      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
989      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
990
991    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
992      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
993
994    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
995      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
996      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
997
998    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
999      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
1000      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
1001      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
1002      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
1003      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
1004
1005    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
1006      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
1007      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
1008
1009    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
1010      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
1011
1012    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
1013      ones considered harmful (blb)
1014
1015    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
1016      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
1017
1018    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
1019      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
1020
1021    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
1022        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
1023          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
1024        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
1025          reports (pguyot)
1026        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
1027
1028    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
1029      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
1030
1031    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
1032
1033    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
1034      echo (the expanded arguments),
1035      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
1036      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
1037      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
1038      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
1039      (jberry)
1040
1041    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
1042      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
1043      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
1044      in a similar fashion (jberry)
