5
6Release 1.9.0 (unreleased):
7
8    - Allow gcc45 port to be used in configure.compiler (ryandesign in r62223)
9
10    - svn checkouts now use peg revisions instead of operative revisions,
11      so they'll continue to work if a repository gets reorganized
12      (#20777, ryandesign in r60573)
13
14    - Print the location of the log file when a target fails (jmr in r60769)
15
16    - Use CommonCrypto/CommonDigest instead of OpenSSL libcrypto.
17      (toby in r58131, jberry in r59715)
18
19    - Add SHA256 checksums in addition to MD5, SHA1 and RIPEMD160.
20      (afb in r57888, r57913)
21
22    - New "patch.type gnu" for GNU patch, similar to "build.type gnu"
23      for GNU make. Only makes a difference for BSD patch and BSD make.
24      (afb in r58020)
25
26    - Update the FreeBSD package, drop the old Fedora/Ubuntu packages.
27      (MacPorts now requires BSD, but objc/Foundation is now optional)
28      (afb in r57858, r57889)
29
30    - Don't use "make -j1" for build.jobs=1, but prefer "make" instead.
31      (afb in r57998)
32
33    - Add new "use_xz yes" port option to allow distfiles in xz format.
34      (afb in r57827)
35
36    - Archivemode now uses build_arch to create and extract archives.
37      This is a step in the direction of enabling binary distribution.
38      (snc in r58977)
39
40    - Add new log command and keeping of debug output for easy access
41      after port has run (GSoC 2009 logging project by enl, merged in r60372)
42
43Release 1.8.3 (unreleased):
44
45    - Some of the build_arch flags now appear in LDFLAGS as well, fixing
46      several ports when building for a different architecture (jeremyhu in
47      r60662, jmr in r60680)
48
49    - Fixed 'merge' proc for paths with spaces, and for symlinks on Snow
50      Leopard, and added an error message for when 'merge' is not called
51      correctly (ryandesign in r58776, r58777, r58778)
52
53Release 1.8.2 (2010-01-01 by jmr):
54
55    - Fixed 'port load' for non-root installations (#21713, jmr in r60774)
56
57    - Fixed a bug that could cause port to hit the open file limit
58      (#22959, jmr in r61770)
59
60    - Fixed an error when installing from source or selfupdating on Tiger with
61      an svn-based ports tree (#20760, jmr in r61302)
62
63    - Fixed an error when selfupdating as root with a prefix that is not owned
64      by root (#21010, jmr in r60798)
65
66    - Stopped uninstall from failing when files in the port image have already
67      been deleted (#22001, jmr in r59318, r59654)
68
69    - Stopped printing command output multiple times on failure (#21084,
70      jmr in r60770)
71
72    - Started showing bug reporting instructions on failure (jmr in r60770)
73
74    - Fixed a bug where 'port dmg' could create too small an image and run out
75      of space (#22404, jmr in r60260)
76
77    - Fixed a bug where reinplace could fail when running port without root
78      privileges (#20896, jmr in r59597)
79
80    - Started setting our own umask since Snow Leopard makes us inherit
81      the user's even when using sudo (#21389, jmr in r59585)
82
83Release 1.8.1 (2009-09-28 by jmr):
84
85    - Installer error messages now display properly even from the Snow Leopard
86      MacPorts dmg. (jmr in r56448)
87
88    - 'fetch.type svn' no longer requires the installation of the subversion
89      port as of Snow Leopard. (toby in r56160; raimue in r56162)
90
91    - Updated manpages and 'port help' output (ryandesign in r56472, r56473,
92      r56474; blb in r56666, r57048, r57131)
93
94    - Fixed syncing using the daily tarball. (#21034, toby in r56889)
95
96    - Fixed 'port load' (#21128, raimue in r57055)
97
98    - Improved error message when an expression on the command line does not
99      match any ports (jmr in r57026)
100
101    - Stopped recording the completion of the install phase in the
102      statefile, which led to errors if the port was uninstalled but the work
103      dir was not cleaned, and the port was then installed again.
104      (jmr/raimue in r57801, 57820)
105
106Release 1.8.0 (2009-08-28 by jmr):
107    - There is now a 'build_arch' variable, available in portfiles and
108      configurable in macports.conf, which sets the CPU architecture that
109      ports should be compiled for (when not building universal). Its default
110      is the same as that of the Apple-supplied /usr/bin/gcc.
111      (#19874, jmr in r53217,r53386,r53420,r53494,r53860,r54236)
112
113    - MacPorts base now works on and has appropriate default settings for
114      Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. (#19874, toby/mww/jkh in r38271,r40060,
115      r40836,r43976,r52397)
116     
117    - MacPorts now requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later. (Panther is not
118      just "unsupported", it really won't work.)
119
120    - The universal_sysroot and universal_target keys have been removed from
121      macports.conf. These settings are now handled automatically.
122      (toby in r52324)
123
124    - Added a 'replaced_by' portfile option. This causes upgrade to deactivate
125      the current port and install the port specified by this option. This
126      also allows ports to be renamed. Upgrade accepts a --no-replace option
127      which disables this behaviour. (#20157, jmr in r54378)
128
129    - The upgrade action now accepts --force and --enforce-variants options.
130      The former causes ports to be rebuilt even if they are not outdated, and
131      the global -f option no longer has this effect (it had too many effects
132      already). The latter causes ports to be rebuilt if the requested
133      variants do not match those installed (even if they are not outdated).
134      (#20156, jmr in r54376)
135
136    - Dependencies can be satisfied by ports that are installed but not
137      available in the ports tree (useful for testing uncommitted ports).
138      (jmr in r52075, r52160)
139
140    - Ports that are installed but not available in the ports tree no longer
141      cause an error when running commands like 'port clean installed'. They
142      are skipped and a warning is printed. (#19253, jmr in r50865)
143
144    - Selfupdate no longer disables readline support unless readline is found
145      in /usr/local, which has historically caused failures.
146      (#19035, jmr in r50868)
147
148    - Uninstalling a port that is not installed now produces an informational
149      message rather than an error. (#18984, jmr in r53709)
150
151    - Added a 'conflicts' portfile option. Conflicting ports will be detected
152      during dependency calculation. (#18794, blb/jmr in r51525)
153
154    - 'port selfupdate' now explicitly states precisely what it does. (#18512)
155
156    - Operating system and architecture information is now shown in debug
157      output. (#18435, raimue in r46669)
158
159    - Fixed a bug that could break some symlinks to man pages. (#18302)
160
161    - Switched to a more efficient algorithm for looking up port information
162      in the index, which makes many operations faster.
163      (#18259, jmr/blb in r47110)
164
165    - MacPorts base now tries to avoid using commands that come from ports, so
166      that a broken port can't break the base code. (#18149)
167
168    - Deleting all the contents of a portfile option no longer unsets the
169      option entirely. (#17865, toby in r44901)
170
171    - Removed the code that upgrades from the old DarwinPorts filesystem
172      layout. Trying to upgrade to 1.8.0+ from a version older than 1.5.0 will
173      produce an error message saying you need to install 1.7.1 first.
174      (#17619, jmr in r53260)
175
176    - port(1) now reports its version as dotted-decimal rather than floating
177      point. (#17420)
178
179    - Dependencies are now always obtained by parsing the Portfile and not
180      from the PortIndex, since the latter can't provide expanded variables
181      like $prefix which may be used in path: depspecs. (#17182)
182
183    - Newline characters in long_description can no longer cause receipt
184      corruption. (#16619, blb in r50663)
185
186    - Now unlocking the filemap when it is not in use. This allows e.g.
187      'port contents' to be run while another port instance is performing
188      installs. Note that running more than one simultaneous port instance
189      that will modify the registry can easily fail, though hopefully
190      without corrupting anything. (#16246, jmr in r51133)
191
192    - Removed some irrelevant debug output that was being printed when a port
193      failed. (#16203, jmr in r53706)
194
195    - Added new depends_fetch and depends_extract options, for dependencies
196      that are needed to fetch or extract the port, respectively.
197      (#15161, jmr in r51780)
198
199    - Packages (including the one for MacPorts base) now correctly indicate
200      that they can only be installed on the root volume.
201      (#14809, jmr in r53250)
202
203    - Using an alternative fetch or extract type now adds appropriate
204      dependencies automatically, e.g. 'use_zip yes' adds a dep on unzip, and
205      'fetch.type svn' adds a dep on subversion. (#13981, jmr in r43782)
206
207    - port(1) should now exit with an appropriate status code when an error is
208      encountered. Use the -p option to continue despite errors.
209      (#13918, jmr in r53704)
210
211    - Proxy information can now be obtained from System Preferences and from
212      macports.conf. The older method using environment variables no longer
213      works out of the box on Leopard due to changes that Apple made to the
214      default /etc/sudoers. (#13158, blb in r47194)
215
216    - Improved handling of malformed variant definitions.
217      (#12596, jmr in r50719, r50721)
218
219    - Cope a little better with missing receipt files. (#19540, jmr in r51138)
220
221    - Fixed a major memory leak in the filemap code.
222      (#12022, pguyot in r51419)
223
224    - Improved the logic for determining whether phases can be skipped. This
225      fixes the specific problems of being unable to build packages of ports
226      that are installed, port not running specific phases (e.g. build)
227      when told to if the port is installed, and inactive dependencies being
228      rebuilt instead of simply activated. (#10881, #16260, jmr in r50490)
229
230    - When archive mode is enabled, ports will no longer be rebuilt if an
231      archive is available. (#10785, jmr in r50416)
232
233    - Activating a port will now first deactivate any other version of the
234      same port that is already active. (#10571, jmr in r53711)
235
236    - Added a 'license' portfile option, which is displayed in 'port info'
237      output. (#7493, jmr in r50801)
238
239    - port lint recognizes new top-level category php (#19329, ryandesign)
240
241    - Do not print header lines when the quiet option -q is set
242      (raimue in r48558)
243
244    - svn.tag is deprecated, use svn.revision instead (raimue in r48222-48223)
245
246    - port -i option has been removed (blb in r48218)
247
248    - ui_warn logs to stderr instead of stdout (raimue in r48217)
249
250    - Remove --pretend option for port selfupdate, use global dry-run option
251      instead (raimue in r48125)
252
253    - port(1) option -y for dry-run (#11892, gwhitney/jmr in r43726)
254
255    - New pseudo-port 'obsolete' to identify ports which are installed but no
256      longer in the PortIndex (raimue in r47253)
257
258    - MacPorts can now perform fetch, extract, patch, configure and build in a
259      user rather than system owned location. By default, this is
260      ~/.macports/opt. This allows MacPorts to do all but the install of the
261      port without root privileges. (gsoc08-privileges)
262
263    - MacPorts can now automatically drop privileges so as to avoid running as
264      root whenever possible. To enable this, pass the desired user to run as
265      to configure with the --with-macports-user option. (gsoc08-privileges)
266
267    - The Portfile format has a number of new boolean attributes to indicate
268      when an action should or should not be run with root privileges:
269      'patch.asroot', 'build.asroot', 'configure.asroot', 'destroot.asroot',
270      and 'install.asroot'. The default for all is "no". If the prefix folder
271      (by default /opt/local) is not writable, MacPorts will attempt to
272      elevate privileges to root for the install phase. (gsoc08-privileges)
273
274    - A "make group" command has been added to the Makefile and a
275      "--with-shared-directory" switch to the configure script. Running "make
276      group" will create a macports group. "--with-shared-directory" will let
277      let the group specified by "--with-install-group" have full read write
278      access to the /opt/local hierarchy. This will allow users who are
279      members of the new macports group to have full write permissions to
280      /opt/local and its subfolders, and hence to install ports which only
281      affect that hierarchy without requiring root privileges.
282      (gsoc08-privileges)
283
284    - A switch called "--with-no-root-privileges" has been added for use by
285      user installing MacPorts for their own use only. An example configure
286      command would be "./configure
287      --prefix=/Users/{your-user-name-here}/.macports/opt
288      --with-no-root-privileges" (gsoc08-privileges)
289
290    - Add several new options to port search, looks in name and description by
291      default (#15434, raimue)
292
293    - Add xpkg package type, xar-based format with XML. (afb)
294
295    - Split portpkg creation out from portsubmit phase. (afb)
296
297    - Make dependencies displayed in port info respect variants
298      specified in variants.conf; collapse port deps to be an alias
299      for port info with appropriate flags. Note this changes output
300      format of port deps somewhat.  (#11891, gwhitney in r44340)
301
302    - Make dependencies in port upgrade respect variants as specified
303      (in order of precedence) on command line, latest installed
304      version, or variants.conf .  (#8221, gwhitney in r44362)
305
306    - Add select action, which integrates *_select tools into port.
307      (#17477, perry)
308
309    - The variants action additionally shows default variants, conflicting
310      variants and variants' dependencies. (#14178, #15628, perry)
311
312    - Implicit variants (e.g., darwin) can no longer be explicitly
313      set/unset. (#12563, perry in r46938, jmr in r53371)
314
315Release 1.7.1 (2009-03-28 by raimue):
316    - Trailing slashes are stripped from the prefix passed to configure, which
317      prevents incorrect mtree violation warnings. (#13789)
318
319    - Fix freshmeat-based livecheck (#18887)
320
321    - Fix issue on direct-mode installs where checking for installed ports
322      wasn't properly looking (it only matched for revision 0 and no
323      variants) (#17762)
324
325    - Add new "use_7z yes" port option to allow distfiles in 7z format
326      (#18521, ryandesign)
327
328    - port lint no longer requires variable master_sites if the port has no
329      distfiles (#18479, ryandesign)
330
331    - Upgrade will no longer accept ports that are not installed (but it still
332      installs new ports as dependencies if needed). In particular, this means
333      that "port upgrade all" will no longer proceed to install every
334      available port. (jmr in r46052)
335
336    - Add mkdtemp Tcl command to create temporary directories. (#17181, perry)
337
338    - Add 'apple-gcc-4.2' option to configure.compiler (#18426, ryandesign)
339
340    - Create ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} in destroot
341      automatically (r45614, raimue)
342
343    - Make the postflight procedure a bit smarter about which login files
344      to update for bash and tcsh (#17588)
345
346    - Add error messages to package installers when the wrong OS package
347      is being installed (#13141)
348
349Release 1.7.0 (2008-12-13 by blb):
350    - Global variant descriptions using variant_descriptions.conf in the new
351      resources directory in the ports tree (#14482, raimue)
352
353    - Move port resources into the ports tree (#14553, raimue and blb)
354
355    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
356
357    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
358
359    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
360
361    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
362      --nitpick is used (#14799)
363
364    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
365
366    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
367
368    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
369      phases (#11897)
370
371    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
372      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
373
374    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
375      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
376      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
377      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
378
379    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
380      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
381      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
382      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
383      in r38683)
384
385    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
386
387    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
388      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
389      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
390
391    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
392      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
393      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
394      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, r37621)
395
396    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
397      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
398      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
399      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
400
401    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
402      (#15577, afb in r37501)
403
404    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
405
406    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
407      running (raimue)
408
409    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
410      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
411      jmr in r37217, r37255)
412
413    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
414      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
415      r37121)

428
429    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is

519    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
520
521    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
522      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_version (jmpp in r32353).
523
524    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents

530
531
532Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
533
534    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
535      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
536      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
537      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
538
539    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
540      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
541
542    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
543
544    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
545      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
546
547    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
548      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
549      (#10651, jberry in r31139, r31140).
550
551    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
552      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
553      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
554      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).
555
556    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
557
558    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
559      multiple files (mww in r31028)

562
563    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)
564
565    - add configure.[awk|bison|pkg_config|pkg_config_path] (r30761)
566
567    - Auto-mode for number of parallel build threads (if number of jobs is set to "0") (r30739)
568
569    - Add option use_parallel_build [yes|no] to declare if a port can be built in parallel (r30714).
570
571    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).
572
573    - Display warnings when using old versions of Mac OS X and Xcode Tools
574      (#12794, afb in r30338 & r30477)
575
576    - Remove configure.macosx_deployment_target, add global macosx_deployment_target
577      (eridius in r30396).
578
579    - add support for LZMA compression, for making .tlz archives (afb in r30307)
580
581    - add configure.[perl|python|ruby] for interpreters, .install for avoiding breakage
582      due to coreutils, .libs
583
584    - added startupitem.netchange boolean flag (#12931, N_Ox in r30086).
585
586    - added generic GNU livecheck (N_Ox in r29812).
587
588    - fixed bug where all .mpkg packages were missing their welcome page (afb in r29517)
589
590    - better defaults for implicit ui_channels behaviour (eridius in r29498).
591
592    - prevent creating PKG packages with /etc or /var or /tmp (#2102, afb in r29445)
593
594    - add optional configure.ccache and configure.distcc filters (#5390, afb in r29438)
595
596    - Explicitly sort fs-traverse so it behaves predictably on Linux systems
597      (#12622, eridius in r29412).
598
599    - add configure.objc/objcflags for Objective-C
600
601    - add optional build.nice (0) and build.jobs (1) modifiers (afb in r28634 & r28673)
602
603    - make tclobjc1.0 compile with GNUstep and NXConstantString class (afb in r28668)
604
605    - fix bsdmake/gnumake defaults for FreeBSD and Linux platforms (afb in r28660)
606
607    - port lint command, for Portfile verification (#463, afb in r28170)
608
609    - add configure.macosx_deployment_target for configure flags
610
611    - add configure.javac/classpath for Java
612
613    - add configure.fflags/fcflags/f90flags for Fortran flags
614
615    - Mark "python" group code as deprecated
616
617    - Add group code for Python 3.0
618
619    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
620
621    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
622      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
623
624    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
625
626    - Chris Pickel's GSoC2007 work: registry2.0 & cregistry (mainly r27518 & r27520)
627
628    - Eugene Pimenov's GSoC2007 work: Trace lib on unix sockets (r26682).
629
630    - Elias Pipping's GSoC2007 work: merge.rb on his personal /users/pipping svn dir.
631
632
633Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
634
635    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
636      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
637      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
638
639
640Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
641
642    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
643      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
644
645    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
646      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
647
648    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
649
650    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
651      (mww in r27199).
652
653    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
654
655    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
656
657    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
658
659    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
660      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
661
662    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
663
664    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
665
666    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
667
668
669Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
670
671    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
672      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
673      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
674      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
675      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
676
677    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
678
679    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
680
681    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
682      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
683      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
684      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
685      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
686
687    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
688
689    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
690      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
691
692    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
693
694    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
695      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
696
697    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
698      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
699      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
700      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
701      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
702      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
703
704    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
705
706    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
707
708    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
709
710    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
711      to detect problems between required and negated variants
712      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
713
714    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
715      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
716      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
717      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
718
719    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
720      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
721
722    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
723      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
724      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
725
726    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
727      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
728         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
729         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
730      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
731      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
732      (jberry r25795).
733
734    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
735
736    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
737      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
738      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
739
740    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
741      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
742
743    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
744      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
745
746    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
747      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
748      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
749      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
750      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
751      (boeyms in r25310)
752
753Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
754
755    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
756
757Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
758
759    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
760
761    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
762      This allows information about variants to be displayed (e.g. dependencies).
763      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
764      (eridius r25255).
765
766    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
767
768    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
769      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
770      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
771
772    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
773      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
774
775    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
776      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
777      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
778      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
779      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
780      (boeyms r25110)
781
782    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
783      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
784      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
785      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
786
787    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
788
789    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
790      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
791
792    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
793      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
794
795    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
796
797    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
798      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
799
800    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
801      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
802      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
803      (jberry r25146)
804
805    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
806         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
807         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
808         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
809           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
810           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
811
812        Example:
813
814            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
815                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
816            }
817
818        (jberry r25147)
819
820    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
821      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
822
823
824Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
825
826    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
827      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
828      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
829      it differently.
830
831    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
832      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
833      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
834      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
835      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
836
837    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
838      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
839      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
840
841    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
842
843    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
844
845    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
846      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
847
848    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
849
850    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
851
852    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
853      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
854      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
855
856    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
857      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
858
859    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
860      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
861
862    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
863      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
864
865    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
866
867    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
868      (pguyot r24273).
869
870    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
871      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
872      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
873
874    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
875      This work is in progress. (jberry)
876       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
877       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
878         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
879
880    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
881      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
882
883    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
884      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
885
886    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
887      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
888
889    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
890
891    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
892
893Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
894
895    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
896      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
897      (jberry r24151).
898
899    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
900      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
901      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
902      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
903      (pipping r24148).
904
905Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
906
907    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
908      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
909
910    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
911      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
912
913    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
914      for submitter information.
915      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
916        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
917        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
918            - PORTSRC
919            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
920            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
921          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
922       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
923
924    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
925      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
926
927    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
928      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
929      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
930      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
931
932    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
933
934    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
935      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
936
937Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
938
939    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
940      (pipping in r23343).
941
942    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
943      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
944
945    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
946      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
947      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
948
949    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
950      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
951
952    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
953      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
954      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
955
956    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
957
958    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
959      r22313).
960
961    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
962      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
963      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
964      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
965
966    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
967      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
968
969    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
970      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
971
972    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
973      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
974
975    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
976      r23967)
977
978
979Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
980
981    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
982      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
983
984    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
985
986    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
987      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
988
989    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
990
991    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
992
993    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
994      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
995
996    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
997
998    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
999
1000    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
1001      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
1002
1003    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
1004      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
1005
1006    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
1007      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
1008      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
1009
1010    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
1011
1012    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
1013      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
1014
1015    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
1016      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
1017
1018    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
1019      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
1020
1021    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
1022
1023    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
1024
1025    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
1026      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
1027
1028    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
1029
1030    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
1031
1032    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
1033
1034    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
1035      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
1036
1037    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
1038      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
1039
1040    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
1041
1042    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
1043
1044
1045Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
1046
1047    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
1048      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
1049
1050    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
1051
1052    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
1053      code. (pguyot)
1054
1055    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
1056      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
1057
1058    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
1059      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
1060
1061    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
1062      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
1063      /usr/local. (pguyot)
1064
1065    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
1066
1067    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
1068      (josh_root, blb)
1069
1070    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
1071      are modified. (pguyot)
1072
1073    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
1074      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1075
1076    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
1077      variable. (pguyot)
1078
1079    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
1080      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
1081      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
1082
1083Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
1084
1085    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
1086
1087    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
1088      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
1089
1090    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
1091      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
1092      SVN. (pguyot)
1093
1094    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
1095      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
1096
1097    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
1098      (jberry)
1099
1100    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
1101      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
1102
1103    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
1104
1105    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
1106
1107    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1108
1109    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
1110       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
1111       * mention interactive and batch modes
1112       * document extensions to info command.
1113
1114    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
1115
1116    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
1117      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
1118      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
1119
1120Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
1121
1122    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
1123      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
1124      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
1125
1126    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
1127      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
1128
1129    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
1130      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
1131
1132    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
1133
1134    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
1135
1136    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
1137      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
1138
1139    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
1140      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
1141
1142    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
1143
1144    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
1145      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
1146
1147    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
1148
1149    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
1150      (jberry)
1151
1152    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
1153      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
1154      (landonf)
1155
1156    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
1157      installed. (jmpp)
1158
1159    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
1160      project path. (pguyot)
1161
1162    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
1163      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
1164
1165    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
1166      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
1167
1168    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
1169      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
1170
1171    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
1172      (olegb)
1173
1174    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
1175      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
1176
1177    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
1178      iterating). (jberry)
1179
1180    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
1181      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
1182      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
1183
1184    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
1185
1186    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
1187      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
1188      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
1189      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
1190      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
1191      shoot yourself. (jberry)
1192
1193    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
1194      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
1195
1196    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
1197      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
1198
1199    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
1200
1201    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
1202      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
1203        several bug fixes.
1204      * cleaned up the code.
1205      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
1206        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
1207        reported creations).
1208      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
1209        overwritten.
1210
1211    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
1212
1213    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
1214      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
1215      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
1216
1217        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
1218          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
1219          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
1220
1221        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
1222          input following any commands given as arguments.
1223
1224        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
1225          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
1226          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
1227            #!/usr/bin/env portf
1228
1229        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
1230
1231        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
1232
1233        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
1234          interactive/batch mode.
1235
1236        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
1237
1238        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
1239          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
1240          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
1241
1242    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
1243      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
1244      (jberry).
1245
1246    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
1247      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
1248
1249    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
1250      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
1251      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
1252
1253    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
1254      (pguyot)
1255
1256    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
1257
1258    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
1259      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
1260      (jberry)
1261
1262    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
1263      MacOS X. (mww)
1264
1265    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
1266      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
1267      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
1268      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
1269      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
1270      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
1271      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
1272      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
1273      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
1274      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.

1276
1277Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
1278
1279    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
1280      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
1281      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
1282      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
1283      fat, configure as follows:
1284        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
1285                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
1286
1287    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
1288      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
1289      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
1290
1291Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
1292
1293    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
1294      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
1295      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
1296        port uninstall vim @1.0
1297      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
1298      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
1299
1300    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
1301      destroot, too. (mww)
1302
1303    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
1304      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
1305
1306    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
1307      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
1308      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
1309
1310    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
1311      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
1312      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
1313
1314    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
1315      groups of ports.
1316      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
1317      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
1318
1319      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
1320        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
1321
1322      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
1323      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
1324      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
1325      The selectors are:
1326      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
1327      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
1328      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
1329
1330    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
1331      ports or groups of ports.
1332      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
1333
1334    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
1335      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
1336      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
1337      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
1338
1339    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
1340      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
1341
1342    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
1343      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
1344      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
1345
1346    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
1347      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
1348      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
1349      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
1350      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
1351      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
1352
1353    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
1354      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
1355      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
1356
1357    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
1358      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
1359
1360    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
1361      ones considered harmful (blb)
1362
1363    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
1364      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
1365
1366    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
1367      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
1368
1369    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
1370        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
1371          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
1372        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
1373          reports (pguyot)
1374        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
1375
1376    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
1377      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
1378
1379    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
1380
1381    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
1382      echo (the expanded arguments),
1383      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
1384      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
1385      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
1386      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
1387      (jberry)
1388
1389    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
1390      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
1391      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
1392      in a similar fashion (jberry)
