6Release 1.9.0 (unreleased):
7
8    - Using a Portfile with a modification date in the future now causes an
9      informative error early on, instead of just discarding the workdir at
10      the start of every phase. (#24717, raimue in r65246)
11
12    - Fetching from servers that require a cookie to be set now works.
13      (#24584, raimue in r66785)
14
15    - Fixed an error when everything is deleted from the patchfiles list.
16      (#24178, raimue in r65243)
17
18    - Added 'license:' pseudo-port selector. (#24123, perry in r65033)
19
20    - Added new fetch.type 'bzr'. (#23436, perry in r65096)
21
22    - Added 'rdeps' and 'rdependents' actions, recursive versions of 'deps'
23      and 'dependents' respectively. Also added 'depof:', 'rdepof:',
24      'dependentof:' and 'rdependentof:' pseudo-port selectors, for specifying
25      the ports that are dependencies or dependents of the given port.
26      (#22346, jmr in r65858/r66198)
27
28    - Updated the description of the search action in the port(1) man page.
29      (#23749, jmr in r66670)
30
31    - Dry-run now uses /dev/null as the statefile, which prevents a couple of
32      problems involving locking and variant checks.
33      (#21794, #21962; jmr in r66921)
34
35    - The list of dependencies to be installed is now displayed immediately
36      after computing them. (#21540, jmr in r66321)
37
38    - The quick index is now reloaded after syncing in interactive mode, which
39      prevents errors due to it not matching the updated PortIndex.
40      (#20874, jmr in r66319, refinement of patch from carrel.org:edward)
41
42    - The architectures of dependencies are checked when installing a port. If
43      a dependency does not provide the required arch(s), it is rebuilt with
44      +universal if that is possible and will help, otherwise the install fails
45      and an error message explains why. (#20728, jmr in r65087)
46
47    - New supported_archs option allows ports to indicate which architectures
48      they can be built for. The default values of configure.build_arch and
49      configure.universal_archs change based on this list. Set this to
50      'noarch' if a port installs only architecture-independent files.
51      (#20739, jmr in r64372/r64945)
52
53    - Declaring a variant that requires one or more other variants will now
54      correctly set the required variants, so they can be checked with
55      variant_isset. (#19224, jmr in r66642)
56
57    - 'port outdated' now indicates the reason why a port that appears to have
58      the same version as that in the tree is considered outdated. Possible
59      reasons are that the epoch is higher, or the installed version was built
60      on a different OS version. (#19138, jmr in r64960)
61
62    - Distfile names are now percent-escaped in the download URLs when needed.
63      (#18736, jmr in r66794)
64
65    - buildnicevalue is now applied to configure and destroot commands, and to
66      build commands with unusual names. (#18304, raimue in r65076/r65808)
67
68    - Removed hardcoded /opt/local prefix from the base dmg resources.
69      (#17633, jmr in r66776)
70
71    - Fixed an error that occurred when archive mode was enabled but
72      ${prefix}/var/macports/packages did not exist. (#17579, jmr in r66775)
73
74    - Syncing rsync sources now tries to get a platform-specific version of
75      the PortIndex from the server, and skips this if the local copy is less
76      than a day old. All sync methods now update the PortIndex at the end.
77      (#17157, jmr in r66846/r67207)
78
79    - portindex(1) now skips parsing Portfiles whose modification time is
80      older than the current PortIndex, instead reusing the existing entry.
81      (#16235, jmr in r66845)
82
83    - Added a 'requested' flag to the registry that indicates which ports were
84      installed explicitly (as opposed to as a dependency of something else).
85      This enables the new 'requested', 'unrequested' and 'leaves' pseudo-
86      ports, as well as the --follow-dependencies option for uninstall.
87      (#15260, jmr in r64517, r64663, r65546, r66037, r66200, r66215)
88
89    - The macports1.0 directory is now installed to
90      ${prefix}/share/macports/Tcl rather than /Library/Tcl. A symlink will be
91      installed in the old location if there is nothing there already, so
92      'package require macports' will still work in tclsh.
93      (#12943, jmr in r65055)
94
95    - Added warning and error messags when Xcode is old enough to cause
96      problems or too old to use at all, respectively. (#12794, jmr in r66771)
97
98    - Removed the rather outdated copy of sqlite3 from the source tree, made
99      the sqlite3 directory configurable, and added defaults for non-darwin
100      platforms. (#12231, jmr in r64358/r64363)
101
102    - There is a new 'archivefetch' target which is run before unarchive when
103      archive mode is enabled, and attempts to download the archive from a
104      server. There are currently no sites configured to download from (these
105      are stored in the ports tree like the mirror sites used for fetch), but
106      you can set ARCHIVE_SITE_LOCAL in the environment. Note that there is no
107      integrity checking for archives yet. (#8571, jmr in r64816)
108
109    - Now recording negative variants in the registry, which stops deselected
110      variants from being reactivated on upgrade due to default_variants or
111      variants.conf settings. (#2377, jmr in r64533)
112
113    - Added support for pre- and post- procedures for the activate, deactivate
114      and uninstall targets. This feature requires portdbformat sqlite. There
115      was limited support for pre- and post-activate previously, but the
116      procedures were only run when installing the port, not when activating
117      an inactive version. (#1068, #4228, #18273; jmr in r64638/r64639)
118
119    - Integrated the sqlite-based registry2.0 code. The portdbformat variable
120      in macports.conf can be set to 'sqlite' to enable it. Existing flat
121      receipts will be converted the first time port(1) is run with sufficient
122      privileges. Original code by sfiera, fixed and integrated by jmr in
123      r63398 and following. The new format lacks a number of problems that the
124      old one suffers from, including #13054 (dependencies from old port
125      versions stick around across upgrades) and #14123 (files whose paths
126      differ only in case are left behind when uninstalling).
127
128    - Fixed file list in +CONTENTS file in archives. (#21864, jmr in r59882)
129
130    - Fixed a few issues reported with building MacPorts on Linux. (#22716)
131
132    - Upgrade will now always choose the port that is active when following
133      dependencies that could be satisfied by more than one port and more than
134      one of these is installed, instead of choosing the one actually named in
135      the depspec. (#23921, jmr in r60883)
136
137    - Extracting from a disk image ("use_dmg yes") no longer fails when there
138      is a space in $worksrcdir. (#23456, raimue in r67089)
139
140    - Added a configure.sdkroot option which can be used to build against a
141      Mac OS X SDK. It is empty by default unless the value of
142      macosx_deployment_target is not the current OS version, or the universal
143      variant is set and the current platform is PowerPC Tiger. It is also
144      possible to set macosx_deployment_target globally in macports.conf now,
145      but this is unsupported. (#19875, jmr in r66924)
146
147    - Add "fs-traverse -tails" which only returns the part following the
148      specified directory (#21873, raimue in r65785)
149
150    - Allow gcc45 port to be used in configure.compiler (ryandesign in r62223)
151
152    - svn checkouts now use peg revisions instead of operative revisions,
153      so they'll continue to work if a repository gets reorganized
154      (#20777, ryandesign in r60573)
155
156    - Print the location of the log file when a target fails (jmr in r60769)
157
158    - Use CommonCrypto/CommonDigest instead of OpenSSL libcrypto.
159      (toby in r58131, jberry in r59715)
160
161    - Add SHA256 checksums in addition to MD5, SHA1 and RIPEMD160.
162      (afb in r57888, r57913)
163
164    - New "patch.type gnu" for GNU patch, similar to "build.type gnu"
165      for GNU make. Only makes a difference for BSD patch and BSD make.
166      (afb in r58020)
167
168    - Updated the FreeBSD package (ObjC/Foundation is now optional).
169      (afb in r57889)
170
171    - Don't use "make -j1" for build.jobs=1, but prefer "make" instead.
172      (afb in r57998)
173
174    - Add new "use_xz yes" port option to allow distfiles in xz format.
175      (afb in r57827)
176
177    - Archive mode now uses build_arch in archive names rather than os.arch.
178      (snc in r58977)
179
180    - Add new log command and keeping of debug output for easy access
181      after port has run (GSoC 2009 logging project by enl, merged in r60372)
182
183    - Some of the build_arch flags now appear in LDFLAGS as well, fixing
184      several ports when building for a different architecture (jeremyhu in
185      r60662, jmr in r60680)
186
187    - Fixed 'merge' proc for paths with spaces, and for symlinks on Snow
188      Leopard, and added an error message for when 'merge' is not called
189      correctly (#21852, ryandesign in r58776, r58777, r58778)
190
191Release 1.8.2 (2010-01-01 by jmr):
192
193    - Fixed 'port load' for non-root installations (#21713, jmr in r60774)
194
195    - Fixed a bug that could cause port to hit the open file limit
196      (#22959, jmr in r61770)
197
198    - Fixed an error when installing from source or selfupdating on Tiger with
199      an svn-based ports tree (#20760, jmr in r61302)
200
201    - Fixed an error when selfupdating as root with a prefix that is not owned
202      by root (#21010, jmr in r60798)
203
204    - Stopped uninstall from failing when files in the port image have already
205      been deleted (#22001, jmr in r59318, r59654)
206
207    - Stopped printing command output multiple times on failure (#21084,
208      jmr in r60770)
209
210    - Started showing bug reporting instructions on failure (jmr in r60770)
211
212    - Fixed a bug where 'port dmg' could create too small an image and run out
213      of space (#22404, jmr in r60260)
214
215    - Fixed a bug where reinplace could fail when running port without root
216      privileges (#20896, jmr in r59597)
217
218    - Started setting our own umask since Snow Leopard makes us inherit
219      the user's even when using sudo (#21389, jmr in r59585)
220
221Release 1.8.1 (2009-09-28 by jmr):
222
223    - Installer error messages now display properly even from the Snow Leopard
224      MacPorts dmg. (jmr in r56448)
225
226    - 'fetch.type svn' no longer requires the installation of the subversion
227      port as of Snow Leopard. (toby in r56160; raimue in r56162)
228
229    - Updated manpages and 'port help' output (ryandesign in r56472, r56473,
230      r56474; blb in r56666, r57048, r57131)
231
232    - Fixed syncing using the daily tarball. (#21034, toby in r56889)
233
234    - Fixed 'port load' (#21128, raimue in r57055)
235
236    - Improved error message when an expression on the command line does not
237      match any ports (jmr in r57026)
238
239    - Stopped recording the completion of the install phase in the
240      statefile, which led to errors if the port was uninstalled but the work
241      dir was not cleaned, and the port was then installed again.
242      (jmr/raimue in r57801, 57820)
243
244Release 1.8.0 (2009-08-28 by jmr):
245    - There is now a 'build_arch' variable, available in portfiles and
246      configurable in macports.conf, which sets the CPU architecture that
247      ports should be compiled for (when not building universal). Its default
248      is the same as that of the Apple-supplied /usr/bin/gcc.
249      (#19874, jmr in r53217,r53386,r53420,r53494,r53860,r54236)
250
251    - MacPorts base now works on and has appropriate default settings for
252      Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. (#19874, toby/mww/jkh in r38271,r40060,
253      r40836,r43976,r52397)
254     
255    - MacPorts now requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later. (Panther is not
256      just "unsupported", it really won't work.)
257
258    - The universal_sysroot and universal_target keys have been removed from
259      macports.conf. These settings are now handled automatically.
260      (toby in r52324)
261
262    - Added a 'replaced_by' portfile option. This causes upgrade to deactivate
263      the current port and install the port specified by this option. This
264      also allows ports to be renamed. Upgrade accepts a --no-replace option
265      which disables this behaviour. (#20157, jmr in r54378)
266
267    - The upgrade action now accepts --force and --enforce-variants options.
268      The former causes ports to be rebuilt even if they are not outdated, and
269      the global -f option no longer has this effect (it had too many effects
270      already). The latter causes ports to be rebuilt if the requested
271      variants do not match those installed (even if they are not outdated).
272      (#20156, jmr in r54376)
273
274    - Dependencies can be satisfied by ports that are installed but not
275      available in the ports tree (useful for testing uncommitted ports).
276      (jmr in r52075, r52160)
277
278    - Ports that are installed but not available in the ports tree no longer
279      cause an error when running commands like 'port clean installed'. They
280      are skipped and a warning is printed. (#19253, jmr in r50865)
281
282    - Selfupdate no longer disables readline support unless readline is found
283      in /usr/local, which has historically caused failures.
284      (#19035, jmr in r50868)
285
286    - Uninstalling a port that is not installed now produces an informational
287      message rather than an error. (#18984, jmr in r53709)
288
289    - Added a 'conflicts' portfile option. Conflicting ports will be detected
290      during dependency calculation. (#18794, blb/jmr in r51525)
291
292    - 'port selfupdate' now explicitly states precisely what it does. (#18512)
293
294    - Operating system and architecture information is now shown in debug
295      output. (#18435, raimue in r46669)
296
297    - Fixed a bug that could break some symlinks to man pages. (#18302)
298
299    - Switched to a more efficient algorithm for looking up port information
300      in the index, which makes many operations faster.
301      (#18259, jmr/blb in r47110)
302
303    - MacPorts base now tries to avoid using commands that come from ports, so
304      that a broken port can't break the base code. (#18149)
305
306    - Deleting all the contents of a portfile option no longer unsets the
307      option entirely. (#17865, toby in r44901)
308
309    - Removed the code that upgrades from the old DarwinPorts filesystem
310      layout. Trying to upgrade to 1.8.0+ from a version older than 1.5.0 will
311      produce an error message saying you need to install 1.7.1 first.
312      (#17619, jmr in r53260)
313
314    - port(1) now reports its version as dotted-decimal rather than floating
315      point. (#17420)
316
317    - Dependencies are now always obtained by parsing the Portfile and not
318      from the PortIndex, since the latter can't provide expanded variables
319      like $prefix which may be used in path: depspecs. (#17182)
320
321    - Newline characters in long_description can no longer cause receipt
322      corruption. (#16619, blb in r50663)
323
324    - Now unlocking the filemap when it is not in use. This allows e.g.
325      'port contents' to be run while another port instance is performing
326      installs. Note that running more than one simultaneous port instance
327      that will modify the registry can easily fail, though hopefully
328      without corrupting anything. (#16246, jmr in r51133)
329
330    - Removed some irrelevant debug output that was being printed when a port
331      failed. (#16203, jmr in r53706)
332
333    - Added new depends_fetch and depends_extract options, for dependencies
334      that are needed to fetch or extract the port, respectively.
335      (#15161, jmr in r51780)
336
337    - Packages (including the one for MacPorts base) now correctly indicate
338      that they can only be installed on the root volume.
339      (#14809, jmr in r53250)
340
341    - Using an alternative fetch or extract type now adds appropriate
342      dependencies automatically, e.g. 'use_zip yes' adds a dep on unzip, and
343      'fetch.type svn' adds a dep on subversion. (#13981, jmr in r43782)
344
345    - port(1) should now exit with an appropriate status code when an error is
346      encountered. Use the -p option to continue despite errors.
347      (#13918, jmr in r53704)
348
349    - Proxy information can now be obtained from System Preferences and from
350      macports.conf. The older method using environment variables no longer
351      works out of the box on Leopard due to changes that Apple made to the
352      default /etc/sudoers. (#13158, blb in r47194)
353
354    - Improved handling of malformed variant definitions.
355      (#12596, jmr in r50719, r50721)
356
357    - Cope a little better with missing receipt files. (#19540, jmr in r51138)
358
359    - Fixed a major memory leak in the filemap code.
360      (#12022, pguyot in r51419)
361
362    - Improved the logic for determining whether phases can be skipped. This
363      fixes the specific problems of being unable to build packages of ports
364      that are installed, port not running specific phases (e.g. build)
365      when told to if the port is installed, and inactive dependencies being
366      rebuilt instead of simply activated. (#10881, #16260, jmr in r50490)
367
368    - When archive mode is enabled, ports will no longer be rebuilt if an
369      archive is available. (#10785, jmr in r50416)
370
371    - Activating a port will now first deactivate any other version of the
372      same port that is already active. (#10571, jmr in r53711)
373
374    - Added a 'license' portfile option, which is displayed in 'port info'
375      output. (#7493, jmr in r50801)
376
377    - port lint recognizes new top-level category php (#19329, ryandesign)
378
379    - Do not print header lines when the quiet option -q is set
380      (raimue in r48558)
381
382    - svn.tag is deprecated, use svn.revision instead (raimue in r48222-48223)
383
384    - port -i option has been removed (blb in r48218)
385
386    - ui_warn logs to stderr instead of stdout (raimue in r48217)
387
388    - Remove --pretend option for port selfupdate, use global dry-run option
389      instead (raimue in r48125)
390
391    - port(1) option -y for dry-run (#11892, gwhitney/jmr in r43726)
392
393    - New pseudo-port 'obsolete' to identify ports which are installed but no
394      longer in the PortIndex (raimue in r47253)
395
396    - MacPorts can now perform fetch, extract, patch, configure and build in a
397      user rather than system owned location. By default, this is
398      ~/.macports/opt. This allows MacPorts to do all but the install of the
399      port without root privileges. (gsoc08-privileges)
400
401    - MacPorts can now automatically drop privileges so as to avoid running as
402      root whenever possible. To enable this, pass the desired user to run as
403      to configure with the --with-macports-user option. (gsoc08-privileges)
404
405    - The Portfile format has a number of new boolean attributes to indicate
406      when an action should or should not be run with root privileges:
407      'patch.asroot', 'build.asroot', 'configure.asroot', 'destroot.asroot',
408      and 'install.asroot'. The default for all is "no". If the prefix folder
409      (by default /opt/local) is not writable, MacPorts will attempt to
410      elevate privileges to root for the install phase. (gsoc08-privileges)
411
412    - A "make group" command has been added to the Makefile and a
413      "--with-shared-directory" switch to the configure script. Running "make
414      group" will create a macports group. "--with-shared-directory" will let
415      let the group specified by "--with-install-group" have full read write
416      access to the /opt/local hierarchy. This will allow users who are
417      members of the new macports group to have full write permissions to
418      /opt/local and its subfolders, and hence to install ports which only
419      affect that hierarchy without requiring root privileges.
420      (gsoc08-privileges)
421
422    - A switch called "--with-no-root-privileges" has been added for use by
423      user installing MacPorts for their own use only. An example configure
424      command would be "./configure
425      --prefix=/Users/{your-user-name-here}/.macports/opt
426      --with-no-root-privileges" (gsoc08-privileges)
427
428    - Add several new options to port search, looks in name and description by
429      default (#15434, raimue)
430
431    - Add xpkg package type, xar-based format with XML. (afb)
432
433    - Split portpkg creation out from portsubmit phase. (afb)
434
435    - Make dependencies displayed in port info respect variants
436      specified in variants.conf; collapse port deps to be an alias
437      for port info with appropriate flags. Note this changes output
438      format of port deps somewhat.  (#11891, gwhitney in r44340)
439
440    - Make dependencies in port upgrade respect variants as specified
441      (in order of precedence) on command line, latest installed
442      version, or variants.conf .  (#8221, gwhitney in r44362)
443
444    - Add select action, which integrates *_select tools into port.
445      (#17477, perry)
446
447    - The variants action additionally shows default variants, conflicting
448      variants and variants' dependencies. (#14178, #15628, perry)
449
450    - Implicit variants (e.g., darwin) can no longer be explicitly
451      set/unset. (#12563, perry in r46938, jmr in r53371)
452
453Release 1.7.1 (2009-03-28 by raimue):
454    - Trailing slashes are stripped from the prefix passed to configure, which
455      prevents incorrect mtree violation warnings. (#13789)
456
457    - Fix freshmeat-based livecheck (#18887)
458
459    - Fix issue on direct-mode installs where checking for installed ports
460      wasn't properly looking (it only matched for revision 0 and no
461      variants) (#17762)
462
463    - Add new "use_7z yes" port option to allow distfiles in 7z format
464      (#18521, ryandesign)
465
466    - port lint no longer requires variable master_sites if the port has no
467      distfiles (#18479, ryandesign)
468
469    - Upgrade will no longer accept ports that are not installed (but it still
470      installs new ports as dependencies if needed). In particular, this means
471      that "port upgrade all" will no longer proceed to install every
472      available port. (jmr in r46052)
473
474    - Add mkdtemp Tcl command to create temporary directories. (#17181, perry)
475
476    - Add 'apple-gcc-4.2' option to configure.compiler (#18426, ryandesign)
477
478    - Create ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} in destroot
479      automatically (r45614, raimue)
480
481    - Make the postflight procedure a bit smarter about which login files
482      to update for bash and tcsh (#17588)
483
484    - Add error messages to package installers when the wrong OS package
485      is being installed (#13141)
486
487Release 1.7.0 (2008-12-13 by blb):
488    - Global variant descriptions using variant_descriptions.conf in the new
489      resources directory in the ports tree (#14482, raimue)
490
491    - Move port resources into the ports tree (#14553, raimue and blb)
492
493    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
494
495    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
496
497    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
498
499    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
500      --nitpick is used (#14799)
501
502    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
503
504    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
505
506    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
507      phases (#11897)
508
509    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
510      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
511
512    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
513      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
514      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
515      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
516
517    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
518      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
519      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
520      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
521      in r38683)
522
523    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
524
525    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
526      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
527      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
528
529    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
530      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
531      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
532      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, r37621)
533
534    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
535      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
536      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
537      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
538
539    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
540      (#15577, afb in r37501)
541
542    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
543
544    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
545      running (raimue)
546
547    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
548      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
549      jmr in r37217, r37255)
550
551    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
552      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
553      r37121)
554
555    - Stopped 'port -R upgrade' from processing more ports than it should, and
556      from processing ports multiple times. (#10827, jmr in r37046)
557
558    - Don't include build.nice and build.jobs in destroot.cmd (#15295)
559
560    - The default universal variant is no longer added when we know it won't
561      work. (#12170, jmr in r36764)
562
563    - During upgrade, if the latest installed version of a port is not active,
564      the currently active version (if any) is now deactivated before trying
565      to activate the latest version. (#12013, jmr in r36762)
566
567    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is
568      inactive and there is at least one other version of the same port
569      installed (#11501, jmr in r36747)
570
571    - Duplicate entries can no longer build up in the dependency map (#8763,
572      jmr in r36745)
573
574    - In image mode, dependencies are no longer treated as being satisfied
575      when the satisfying port is not active (#7361, jmr in r36735)
576
577    - Fixed a bug where upgrade could create too many nested subdirectories
578      in distpath, archive.destpath and unarchive.srcpath (#11971, jmr in
579      r36679, r36687, r36688)
580
581    - Declaring a dependency on a nonexistent port now always causes an error
582      (#10768, jmr in r36648)
583
584    - Explicitly use unsetenv(3) on all environment variables (#13930, #16010,
585      #16233)
586
587    - Make the included tclthread compile on Leopard if configured (#13495)
588
589    - Allow distfiles to be disk images with "use_dmg yes" port option (#13509,
590      ryandesign in r36708)
591
592    - ruby.setup now takes a type 'fetch' to just fetch/extract (eridius in r35773)
593
594    - Fetch now prefers mirrors with lower ping times (#14891, jmr in r35748,
595      r35806, r35808)
596
597    - Fetching of daily snapshot tarballs of the ports tree as an alternative to rsync
598      (raimue in r35647, r35648)
599
600    - port uninstall now takes --follow-dependents to uninstall all dependents
601      (#14637, eridius/raimue in r34977, r35042, r36160)
602
603    - New fetch.type git (#14232, eridius in r34875)
604
605    - fixed "port mdmg" getting block size wrong for the disk image (#13968, afb in r34844)
606
607    - always set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, to avoid bugs with older glibtool (afb in r34541)
608
609    - port lint now checks all dependencies so that the ports actually exist (#14380)
610
611    - added target_state to avoid the need for privileges for lint/livecheck (#13458)
612
613    - Overhauled output for port info/deps/dependents/search (raimue in
614      r34354, r34371, r34391, r34395, r34402, r34420)
615
616    - Revert the default +universal MDT/SDK to 10.4/10.4u on Tiger and 10.5/10.5 on Leopard
617
618    - port lint shouldn't require variable master_sites for fetch.type != standard (#14377)
619
620    - Add "tcldoc" documentation comments and "tcldox" Doxyfile for doxygen (#12048)
621
622    - Add --pretend and --nosync flags to selfupdate (raimue in r33938, r33939,
623      r33940, r33941)
624
625    - Work around autoconf X11 detection bugs on darwin (afb in r33717)
626
627    - Fix bugs with X11 lib detection on Leopard (#14089, afb in r33716)
628
629    - Add configure.{optflags,m32,m64,march,mtune} (afb in r33503, r33599)
630
631    - Add applications_dir and frameworks_dir configuration (r33499, r33722)
632
633    - Remove some hardcoded paths (such as /usr/X11R6, /usr/bin/install) (afb in r33501, r33619, r33620)
634
635    - Add configure.{universal_target,universal_sysroot,universal_archs} (afb in r33478).
636
637    - Change default +universal platform back to: 10.4/10.4u.sdk/i386 ppc (r33087, r33107).
638
639    - Add `port platform` info action that outputs current platform (#12302, afb in r32724).
640
641    - Enable 64 bit environment, ppc64 x86_64, for all +universal builds (mww in r32194).
642
643    - Add 'merge' function for merging multiple (single arch) destroots into one (universal)
644      destroot (mww in r31954).
645
646    - If checksum is mismatched, and in verbose mode, present a corrected pre-fabricated checksum statement
647      to make it easy to update a port (jberry in r32441).
648
649    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_prefix"" runtime error on Panther
650      (eridius in r32525).
651
652    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_channels"" runtime error on Panther
653      (eridius in r32514).
654
655    - "port lint" now recognizes non-canonical modelines (afb in r32480).
656
657    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
658
659    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
660      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_version (jmpp in r32353).
661
662    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents
663      (jmpp in r32336).
664
665    - Fixed a Panther build failure due to missing sqlite headers (jmpp in r32212).
666
667    - Fixed a build failure by passing the base/src/cregistry/cregistry.a archive through ranlib (jmpp in r32105).
668
669
670Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
671
672    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
673      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
674      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
675      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
676
677    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
678      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
679
680    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
681
682    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
683      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
684
685    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
686      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
687      (#10651, jberry in r31139, r31140).
688
689    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
690      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
691      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
692      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).
693
694    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
695
696    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
697      multiple files (mww in r31028)
698
699    - add optional configure.pipe output (afb in r29604 & r30824)
700
701    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)
702
703    - add configure.[awk|bison|pkg_config|pkg_config_path] (r30761)
704
705    - Auto-mode for number of parallel build threads (if number of jobs is set to "0") (r30739)
706
707    - Add option use_parallel_build [yes|no] to declare if a port can be built in parallel (r30714).
708
709    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).
710
711    - Display warnings when using old versions of Mac OS X and Xcode Tools
712      (#12794, afb in r30338 & r30477)
713
714    - Remove configure.macosx_deployment_target, add global macosx_deployment_target
715      (eridius in r30396).
716
717    - add support for LZMA compression, for making .tlz archives (afb in r30307)
718
719    - add configure.[perl|python|ruby] for interpreters, .install for avoiding breakage
720      due to coreutils, .libs
721
722    - added startupitem.netchange boolean flag (#12931, N_Ox in r30086).
723
724    - added generic GNU livecheck (N_Ox in r29812).
725
726    - fixed bug where all .mpkg packages were missing their welcome page (afb in r29517)
727
728    - better defaults for implicit ui_channels behaviour (eridius in r29498).
729
730    - prevent creating PKG packages with /etc or /var or /tmp (#2102, afb in r29445)
731
732    - add optional configure.ccache and configure.distcc filters (#5390, afb in r29438)
733
734    - Explicitly sort fs-traverse so it behaves predictably on Linux systems
735      (#12622, eridius in r29412).
736
737    - add configure.objc/objcflags for Objective-C
738
739    - add optional build.nice (0) and build.jobs (1) modifiers (afb in r28634 & r28673)
740
741    - make tclobjc1.0 compile with GNUstep and NXConstantString class (afb in r28668)
742
743    - fix bsdmake/gnumake defaults for FreeBSD and Linux platforms (afb in r28660)
744
745    - port lint command, for Portfile verification (#463, afb in r28170)
746
747    - add configure.macosx_deployment_target for configure flags
748
749    - add configure.javac/classpath for Java
750
751    - add configure.fflags/fcflags/f90flags for Fortran flags
752
753    - Mark "python" group code as deprecated
754
755    - Add group code for Python 3.0
756
757    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
758
759    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
760      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
761
762    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
763
764    - Chris Pickel's GSoC2007 work: registry2.0 & cregistry (mainly r27518 & r27520)
765
766    - Eugene Pimenov's GSoC2007 work: Trace lib on unix sockets (r26682).
767
768    - Elias Pipping's GSoC2007 work: merge.rb on his personal /users/pipping svn dir.
769
770
771Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
772
773    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
774      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
775      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
776
777
778Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
779
780    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
781      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
782
783    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
784      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
785
786    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
787
788    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
789      (mww in r27199).
790
791    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
792
793    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
794
795    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
796
797    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
798      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
799
800    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
801
802    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
803
804    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).

807Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
808
809    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
810      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
811      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
812      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
813      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
814
815    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
816
817    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
818
819    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
820      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
821      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
822      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
823      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
824
825    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
826
827    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
828      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
829
830    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
831
832    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
833      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
834
835    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
836      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
837      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
838      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
839      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
840      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
841
842    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
843
844    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
845
846    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
847
848    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
849      to detect problems between required and negated variants
850      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
851
852    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
853      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
854      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
855      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
856
857    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
858      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
859
860    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
861      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
862      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
863
864    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
865      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
866         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
867         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
868      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
869      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
870      (jberry r25795).
871
872    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
873
874    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
875      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
876      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
877
878    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
879      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
880
881    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
882      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
883
884    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
885      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
886      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
887      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
888      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
889      (boeyms in r25310)
890
891Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
892
893    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
894
895Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
896
897    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
898
899    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
900      This allows information about variants to be displayed (e.g. dependencies).
901      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
902      (eridius r25255).
903
904    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
905
906    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
907      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
908      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
909
910    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
911      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
912
913    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
914      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
915      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
916      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
917      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
918      (boeyms r25110)
919
920    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
921      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
922      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
923      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
924
925    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
926
927    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
928      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
929
930    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
931      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
932
933    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
934
935    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
936      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
937
938    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
939      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
940      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
941      (jberry r25146)
942
943    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
944         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
945         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
946         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
947           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
948           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
949
950        Example:
951
952            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
953                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
954            }
955
956        (jberry r25147)
957
958    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
959      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
960
961
962Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
963
964    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
965      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
966      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
967      it differently.
968
969    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
970      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
971      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
972      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
973      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
974
975    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
976      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
977      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
978
979    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
980
981    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
982
983    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
984      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
985
986    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
987
988    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
989
990    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
991      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
992      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
993
994    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
995      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
996
997    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
998      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
999
1000    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
1001      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
1002
1003    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
1004
1005    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
1006      (pguyot r24273).
1007
1008    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
1009      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
1010      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
1011
1012    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
1013      This work is in progress. (jberry)
1014       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
1015       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
1016         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
1017
1018    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
1019      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
1020
1021    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
1022      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
1023
1024    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
1025      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
1026
1027    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
1028
1029    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
1030
1031Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
1032
1033    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
1034      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
1035      (jberry r24151).
1036
1037    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
1038      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
1039      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
1040      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
1041      (pipping r24148).
1042
1043Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
1044
1045    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
1046      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
1047
1048    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
1049      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
1050
1051    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
1052      for submitter information.
1053      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
1054        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
1055        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
1056            - PORTSRC
1057            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
1058            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
1059          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
1060       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
1061
1062    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
1063      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
1064
1065    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
1066      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
1067      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
1068      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1069
1070    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1071
1072    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
1073      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
1074
1075Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
1076
1077    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
1078      (pipping in r23343).
1079
1080    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
1081      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
1082
1083    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
1084      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
1085      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
1086
1087    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
1088      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
1089
1090    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
1091      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
1092      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
1093
1094    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
1095
1096    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
1097      r22313).
1098
1099    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
1100      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
1101      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
1102      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
1103
1104    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
1105      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
1106
1107    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
1108      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
1109
1110    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
1111      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
1112
1113    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
1114      r23967)
1115
1116
1117Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
1118
1119    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
1120      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
1121
1122    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
1123
1124    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
1125      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
1126
1127    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
1128
1129    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
1130
1131    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
1132      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
1133
1134    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
1135
1136    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
1137
1138    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
1139      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
1140
1141    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
1142      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
1143
1144    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
1145      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
1146      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
1147
1148    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
1149
1150    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
1151      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
1152
1153    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
1154      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
1155
1156    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
1157      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
1158
1159    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
1160
1161    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
1162
1163    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
1164      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
1165
1166    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
1167
1168    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
1169
1170    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
1171
1172    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
1173      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
1174
1175    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
1176      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
1177
1178    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
1179
1180    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
1181
1182
1183Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
1184
1185    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
1186      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
1187
1188    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
1189
1190    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
1191      code. (pguyot)
1192
1193    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
1194      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
1195
1196    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
1197      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
1198
1199    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
1200      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
1201      /usr/local. (pguyot)
1202
1203    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
1204
1205    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
1206      (josh_root, blb)
1207
1208    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
1209      are modified. (pguyot)
1210
1211    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
1212      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1213
1214    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
1215      variable. (pguyot)
1216
1217    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
1218      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
1219      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
1220
1221Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
1222
1223    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
1224
1225    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
1226      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
1227
1228    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
1229      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
1230      SVN. (pguyot)
1231
1232    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
1233      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
1234
1235    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
1236      (jberry)
1237
1238    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
1239      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
1240
1241    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
1242
1243    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
1244
1245    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1246
1247    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
1248       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
1249       * mention interactive and batch modes
1250       * document extensions to info command.
1251
1252    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
1253
1254    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
1255      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
1256      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
1257
1258Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
1259
1260    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
1261      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
1262      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
1263
1264    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
1265      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
1266
1267    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
1268      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
1269
1270    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
1271
1272    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
1273
1274    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
1275      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
1276
1277    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
1278      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
1279
1280    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
1281
1282    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
1283      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
1284
1285    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
1286
1287    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
1288      (jberry)
1289
1290    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
1291      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
1292      (landonf)
1293
1294    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
1295      installed. (jmpp)
1296
1297    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
1298      project path. (pguyot)
1299
1300    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
1301      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
1302
1303    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
1304      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
1305
1306    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
1307      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
1308
1309    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
1310      (olegb)
1311
1312    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
1313      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
1314
1315    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
1316      iterating). (jberry)
1317
1318    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
1319      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
1320      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
1321
1322    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
1323
1324    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
1325      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
1326      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
1327      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
1328      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
1329      shoot yourself. (jberry)
1330
1331    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
1332      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
1333
1334    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
1335      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
1336
1337    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
1338
1339    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
1340      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
1341        several bug fixes.
1342      * cleaned up the code.
1343      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
1344        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
1345        reported creations).
1346      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
1347        overwritten.
1348
1349    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
1350
1351    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
1352      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
1353      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
1354
1355        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
1356          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
1357          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
1358
1359        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
1360          input following any commands given as arguments.
1361
1362        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
1363          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
1364          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
1365            #!/usr/bin/env portf
1366
1367        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
1368
1369        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
1370
1371        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
1372          interactive/batch mode.
1373
1374        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
1375
1376        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
1377          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
1378          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
1379
1380    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
1381      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
1382      (jberry).
1383
1384    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
1385      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
1386
1387    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
1388      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
1389      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
1390
1391    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
1392      (pguyot)
1393
1394    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
1395
1396    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
1397      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
1398      (jberry)
1399
1400    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
1401      MacOS X. (mww)
1402
1403    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
1404      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
1405      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
1406      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
1407      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
1408      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
1409      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
1410      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
1411      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
1412      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
1413      (jberry) 2006-02-16
1414
1415Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
1416
1417    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
1418      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
1419      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
1420      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
1421      fat, configure as follows:
1422        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
1423                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
1424
1425    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
1426      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
1427      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
1428
1429Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
1430
1431    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
1432      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
1433      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
1434        port uninstall vim @1.0
1435      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
1436      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
1437
1438    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
1439      destroot, too. (mww)
1440
1441    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
1442      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
1443
1444    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
1445      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
1446      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
1447
1448    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
1449      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
1450      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
1451
1452    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
1453      groups of ports.
1454      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
1455      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
1456
1457      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
1458        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
1459
1460      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
1461      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
1462      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
1463      The selectors are:
1464      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
1465      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
1466      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
1467
1468    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
1469      ports or groups of ports.
1470      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
1471
1472    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
1473      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
1474      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
1475      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
1476
1477    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
1478      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
1479
1480    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
1481      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
1482      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
1483
1484    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
1485      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
1486      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
1487      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
1488      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
1489      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
1490
1491    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
1492      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
1493      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
1494
1495    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
1496      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
1497
1498    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
1499      ones considered harmful (blb)
1500
1501    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
1502      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
1503
1504    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
1505      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
1506
1507    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
1508        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
1509          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
1510        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
1511          reports (pguyot)
1512        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
1513
1514    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
1515      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
1516
1517    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
1518
1519    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
1520      echo (the expanded arguments),
1521      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
1522      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
1523      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
1524      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
1525      (jberry)
1526
1527    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
1528      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
1529      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
1530      in a similar fashion (jberry)
1531
