7Release 1.7.0 (unreleased):
8    - Global variant descriptions using variant_descriptions.conf in the new
9      resources directory in the ports tree (#14482, raimue)
10
11    - Move port resources into the ports tree (#14553, raimue and blb)
12
13    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
14
15    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
16
17    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
18
19    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
20      --nitpick is used (#14799)
21
22    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
23
24    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
25
26    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
27      phases (#11897)
28
29    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
30      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
31
32    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
33      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
34      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
35      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
36
37    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
38      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
39      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
40      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
41      in 38683)
42
43    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
44
45    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
46      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
47      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
48
49    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
50      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
51      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
52      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, 37621)
53
54    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
55      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
56      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
57      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
58
59    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
60      (#15577, afb in r37501)
61
62    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
63
64    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
65      running (raimue)
66
67    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
68      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
69      jmr in r37217, 37255)
70
71    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
72      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
73      r37121)
74
75    - Stopped 'port -R upgrade' from processing more ports than it should, and
76      from processing ports multiple times. (#10827, jmr in r37046)
77
78    - Don't include build.nice and build.jobs in destroot.cmd (#15295)
79
80    - The default universal variant is no longer added when we know it won't
81      work. (#12170, jmr in r36764)
82
83    - During upgrade, if the latest installed version of a port is not active,
84      the currently active version (if any) is now deactivated before trying
85      to activate the latest version. (#12013, jmr in r36762)
86
87    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is
88      inactive and there is at least one other version of the same port
89      installed (#11501, jmr in r36747)
90
91    - Duplicate entries can no longer build up in the dependency map (#8763,
92      jmr in r36745)
93
94    - In image mode, dependencies are no longer treated as being satisfied
95      when the satisfying port is not active (#7361, jmr in r36735)
96
97    - Fixed a bug where upgrade could create too many nested subdirectories
98      in distpath, archive.destpath and unarchive.srcpath (#11971, jmr in
99      r36679, r36687, r36688)
100
101    - Declaring a dependency on a nonexistent port now always causes an error
102      (#10768, jmr in r36648)
103
104    - Explicitly use unsetenv(3) on all environment variables (#13930, #16010,
105      #16233)
106
107    - Make the included tclthread compile on Leopard if configured (#13495)
108
109    - Allow distfiles to be disk images with "use_dmg yes" port option (#13509,
110      ryandesign in r36708)
111
112    - ruby.setup now takes a type 'fetch' to just fetch/extract (eridius in r35773)
113
114    - Fetch now prefers mirrors with lower ping times (#14891, jmr in r35748,
115      r35806, r35808)
116
117    - Fetching of daily snapshot tarballs of the ports tree as an alternative to rsync
118      (raimue in r35647, r35648)
119
120    - port uninstall now takes --recursive to uninstall all dependents (#14637, eridius in r34977)
121
122    - New fetch.type git (#14232, eridius in r34875)
123
124    - fixed "port mdmg" getting block size wrong for the disk image (#13968, afb in r34844)
125
126    - always set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, to avoid bugs with older glibtool (afb in r34541)
127
128    - port lint now checks all dependencies so that the ports actually exist (#14380)
129
130    - added target_state to avoid the need for privileges for lint/livecheck (#13458)
131
132    - Overhauled output for port info/deps/dependents/search (raimue in
133      r34354, r34371, r34391, r34395, r34402, r34420)
134
135    - Revert the default +universal MDT/SDK to 10.4/10.4u on Tiger and 10.5/10.5 on Leopard
136
137    - port lint shouldn't require variable master_sites for fetch.type != standard (#14377)
138
139    - Add "tcldoc" documentation comments and "tcldox" Doxyfile for doxygen (#12048)
140
141    - Add --pretend and --nosync flags to selfupdate (raimue in r33938, r33939,
142      r33940, 33941)
143
144    - Work around autoconf X11 detection bugs on darwin (afb in r33717)
145
146    - Fix bugs with X11 lib detection on Leopard (#14089, afb in r33716)
147
148    - Add configure.{optflags,m32,m64,march,mtune} (afb in r33503, r33599)
149
150    - Add applications_dir and frameworks_dir configuration (r33499, r33722)
151
152    - Remove some hardcoded paths (such as /usr/X11R6, /usr/bin/install)
153
154    - Add configure.{universal_target,universal_sysroot,universal_archs} (afb in r33478).
155
156    - Change default +universal platform back to: 10.4/10.4u.sdk/i386 ppc (r33087, r33107).
157
158    - Add `port platform` info target that outputs current platform (#12302, afb in r32724).
159
160    - Enable 64 bit environment, ppc64 x86_64, for all +universal builds (mww in r32194).
161
162    - Add 'merge' function for merging multiple (single arch) destroots into one (universal)
163      destroot (mww in r31954).
164
165    - If checksum is mismatched, and in verbose mode, present a corrected pre-fabricated checksum statement
166      to make it easy to update a port (jberry in r32441).
167
168    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_prefix"" runtime error on Panther
169      (eridius in r32525).
170
171    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_channels"" runtime error on Panther
172      (eridius in r32514).
173
174    - "port lint" now recognizes non-canonical modelines (afb in r32480).
175
176    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
177
178    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
179      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_vesion (jmpp in r32353).
180
181    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents
182      (jmpp in r32336).
183
184    - Fixed a Panther build failure due to missing sqlite headers (jmpp in r32212).
185
186    - Fixed a build failure by passing the base/src/cregistry/cregistry.a archive through ranlib (jmpp in r32105).
187
188
189Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
190
191    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
192      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
193      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
194      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
195
196    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
197      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
198
199    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
200
201    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
202      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
203
204    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
205      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
206      (jberry r31139, r31140).
207
208    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
209      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
210      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
211      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).
212
213    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
214
215    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
216      multiple files (mww in r31028)
217
218    - add optional configure.pipe output (afb in r29604 & r30824)
219
220    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)
221
222    - add configure.[awk|bison|pkg_config|pkg_config_path] (r30761)
223
224    - Auto-mode for number of parallel build threads (if number of jobs is set to "0") (r30739)
225
226    - Add option use_parallel_build [yes|no] to declare if a port can be built in parallel (r30714).
227
228    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).
229
230    - Display warnings when using old versions of Mac OS X and Xcode Tools
231      (#12794, afb in r30338 & r30477)
232
233    - Remove configure.macosx_deployment_target, add global macosx_deployment_target
234      (eridius in r30396).
235
236    - add support for LZMA compression, for making .tlz archives (afb in r30307)
237
238    - add configure.[perl|python|ruby] for interpreters, .install for avoiding breakage
239      due to coreutils, .libs
240
241    - added startupitem.netchange boolean flag (#12931, N_Ox in r30086).
242
243    - added generic GNU livecheck (N_Ox in r29812).
244
245    - fixed bug where all .mpkg packages were missing their welcome page (afb in r29517)
246
247    - better defaults for implicit ui_channels behaviour (eridius in r29498).
248
249    - prevent creating PKG packages with /etc or /var or /tmp (#2102, afb in r29445)
250
251    - add optional configure.ccache and configure.distcc filters (#5390, afb in r29438)
252
253    - Explicitly sort fs-traverse so it behaves predictably on Linux systems
254      (#12622, eridius in r29412).
255
256    - add configure.objc/objcflags for Objective-C
257
258    - add optional build.nice (0) and build.jobs (1) modifiers (afb in r28634 & r28673)
259
260    - make tclobjc1.0 compile with GNUstep and NXConstantString class (afb in r28668)
261
262    - fix bsdmake/gnumake defaults for FreeBSD and Linux platforms (afb in r28660)
263
264    - port lint command, for Portfile verification (#463, afb in r28170)
265
266    - add configure.macosx_deployment_target for configure flags
267
268    - add configure.javac/classpath for Java
269
270    - add configure.fflags/fcflags/f90flags for Fortran flags
271
272    - Mark "python" group code as deprecated
273
274    - Add group code for Python 3.0
275
276    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
277
278    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
279      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
280
281    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
282
283    - Chris Pickel's GSoC2007 work: registry2.0 & cregistry (mainly r27518 & r27520)
284
285    - Eugene Pimenov's GSoC2007 work: Trace lib on unix sockets (r26682).
286
287    - Elias Pipping's GSoC2007 work: merge.rb on his personal /users/pipping svn dir.
288
289
290Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
291
292    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
293      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
294      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
295
296
297Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
298
299    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
300      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
301
302    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
303      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
304
305    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
306
307    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
308      (mww in r27199).
309
310    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
311
312    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
313
314    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
315
316    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
317      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
318
319    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
320
321    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
322
323    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
324
325
326Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
327
328    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
329      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
330      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
331      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
332      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
333
334    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
335
336    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
337
338    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
339      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
340      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
341      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
342      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
343
344    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
345
346    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
347      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
348
349    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
350
351    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
352      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
353
354    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
355      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
356      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
357      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
358      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
359      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
360
361    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
362
363    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
364
365    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
366
367    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
368      to detect problems between required and negated variants
369      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
370
371    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
372      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
373      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
374      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
375
376    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
377      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
378
379    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
380      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
381      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
382
383    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
384      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
385         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
386         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
387      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
388      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
389      (jberry r25795).
390
391    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
392
393    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
394      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
395      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
396
397    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
398      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
399
400    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
401      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
402
403    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
404      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
405      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
406      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
407      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
408      (boeyms in r25310)
409
410Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
411
412    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
413
414Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
415
416    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
417
418    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
419      This allows information about variants to be displayed (eg. dependencies).
420      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
421      (eridius r25255).
422
423    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
424
425    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
426      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
427      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
428
429    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
430      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
431
432    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
433      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
434      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
435      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
436      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
437      (boeyms r25110)
438
439    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
440      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
441      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
442      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
443
444    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
445
446    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
447      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
448
449    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
450      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
451
452    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
453
454    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
455      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
456
457    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
458      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
459      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
460      (jberry r25146)
461
462    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
463         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
464         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
465         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
466           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
467           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
468
469        Example:
470
471            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
472                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
473            }
474
475        (jberry r25147)
476
477    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
478      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
479
480
481Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
482
483    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
484      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
485      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
486      it differently.
487
488    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
489      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
490      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
491      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
492      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
493
494    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
495      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
496      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
497
498    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
499
500    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
501
502    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
503      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
504
505    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
506
507    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
508
509    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
510      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
511      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
512
513    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
514      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
515
516    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
517      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
518
519    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
520      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
521
522    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
523
524    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
525      (pguyot r24273).
526
527    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
528      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
529      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
530
531    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
532      This work is in progress. (jberry)
533       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
534       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
535         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
536
537    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
538      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
539
540    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
541      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
542
543    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
544      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
545
546    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
547
548    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
549
550Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
551
552    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
553      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
554      (jberry r24151).
555
556    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
557      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
558      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
559      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
560      (pipping r24148).
561
562Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
563
564    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
565      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
566
567    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
568      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
569
570    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
571      for submitter information.
572      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
573        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
574        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
575            - PORTSRC
576            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
577            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
578          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
579       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
580
581    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
582      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
583
584    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
585      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
586      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
587      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
588
589    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
590
591    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
592      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
593
594Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
595
596    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
597      (pipping in r23343).
598
599    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
600      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
601
602    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
603      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
604      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
605
606    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
607      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
608
609    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
610      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
611      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
612
613    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
614
615    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
616      r22313).
617
618    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
619      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
620      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
621      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
622
623    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
624      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
625
626    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
627      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
628
629    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
630      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
631
632    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
633      r23967)
634
635
636Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
637
638    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
639      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
640
641    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
642
643    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
644      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
645
646    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
647
648    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
649
650    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
651      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
652
653    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
654
655    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
656
657    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
658      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
659
660    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
661      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
662
663    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
664      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
665      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
666
667    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
668
669    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
670      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
671
672    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
673      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
674
675    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
676      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
677
678    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
679
680    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
681
682    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
683      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
684
685    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
686
687    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
688
689    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
690
691    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
692      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
693
694    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
695      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
696
697    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
698
699    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
700
701
702Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
703
704    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
705      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
706
707    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
708
709    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
710      code. (pguyot)
711
712    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
713      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
714
715    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
716      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
717
718    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
719      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
720      /usr/local. (pguyot)
721
722    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
723
724    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
725      (josh_root, blb)
726
727    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
728      are modified. (pguyot)
729
730    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
731      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
732
733    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
734      variable. (pguyot)
735
736    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
737      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
738      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
739
740Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
741
742    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
743
744    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
745      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
746
747    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
748      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
749      SVN. (pguyot)
750
751    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
752      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
753
754    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
755      (jberry)
756
757    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
758      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
759
760    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
761
762    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
763
764    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
765
766    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
767       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
768       * mention interactive and batch modes
769       * document extensions to info command.
770
771    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
772
773    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
774      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
775      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
776
777Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
778
779    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
780      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
781      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
782
783    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
784      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
785
786    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
787      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
788
789    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
790
791    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
792
793    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
794      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
795
796    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
797      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
798
799    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
800
801    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
802      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
803
804    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
805
806    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
807      (jberry)
808
809    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
810      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
811      (landonf)
812
813    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
814      installed. (jmpp)
815
816    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
817      project path. (pguyot)
818
819    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
820      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
821
822    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
823      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
824
825    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
826      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
827
828    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
829      (olegb)
830
831    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
832      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
833
834    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
835      iterating). (jberry)
836
837    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
838      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
839      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
840
841    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
842
843    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
844      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
845      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
846      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
847      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
848      shoot yourself. (jberry)
849
850    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
851      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
852
853    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
854      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
855
856    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
857
858    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
859      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
860        several bug fixes.
861      * cleaned up the code.
862      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
863        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
864        reported creations).
865      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
866        overwritten.
867
868    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
869
870    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
871      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
872      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
873
874        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
875          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
876          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
877
878        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
879          input following any commands given as arguments.
880
881        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
882          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
883          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
884            #!/usr/bin/env portf
885
886        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
887
888        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
889
890        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
891          interactive/batch mode.
892
893        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
894
895        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
896          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
897          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
898
899    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
900      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
901      (jberry).
902
903    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
904      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
905
906    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
907      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
908      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
909
910    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
911      (pguyot)
912
913    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
914
915    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
916      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
917      (jberry)
918
919    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
920      MacOS X. (mww)
921
922    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
923      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
924      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
925      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
926      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
927      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
928      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
929      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
930      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
931      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.

933
934Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
935
936    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
937      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
938      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
939      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
940      fat, configure as follows:
941        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
942                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
943
944    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
945      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
946      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
947
948Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
949
950    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
951      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
952      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
953        port uninstall vim @1.0
954      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
955      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
956
957    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
958      destroot, too. (mww)
959
960    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
961      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
962
963    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
964      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
965      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
966
967    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
968      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
969      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
970
971    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
972      groups of ports.
973      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
974      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
975
976      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
977        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
978
979      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
980      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
981      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
982      The selectors are:
983      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
984      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
985      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
986
987    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
988      ports or groups of ports.
989      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
990
991    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
992      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
993      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
994      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
995
996    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
997      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
998
999    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
1000      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
1001      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
1002
1003    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
1004      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
1005      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
1006      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
1007      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
1008      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
1009
1010    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
1011      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
1012      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
1013
1014    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
1015      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
1016
1017    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
1018      ones considered harmful (blb)
1019
1020    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
1021      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
1022
1023    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
1024      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
1025
1026    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
1027        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
1028          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
1029        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
1030          reports (pguyot)
1031        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
1032
1033    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
1034      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
1035
1036    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
1037
1038    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
1039      echo (the expanded arguments),
1040      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
1041      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
1042      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
1043      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
1044      (jberry)
1045
1046    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
1047      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
1048      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
1049      in a similar fashion (jberry)
