6Unreleased changes:
7
8    - Add SHA256 checksums in addition to MD5, SHA1 and RIPEMD160.
9      (afb in r57888, r57913; snc in r68955)
10
11Release 1.9.2 (future):
12
13    - Added more locking to avoid TOCTOU errors when running multiple port(1)
14      instances (#19935, jmr in r70174)
15
16    - Fixed -q not suppressing output from 'port lint' (#25880, jmr in r70163)
17
18    - Added a helpful message when there is a checksum mismatch and the
19      distfile appears to incorrectly be a HTML document (#25128,
20      ryandesign/jmr in r70143)
21
22    - Now checking early on if there are sufficient privileges to install,
23      and failing before building anything if not (#25671, jmr in r70135)
24
25    - Avoided possible failure when the -u option is used when upgrading a
26      port that is marked as being replaced by another (jmr in r69022)
27
28    - Using the platform-specific PortIndex when syncing using a daily tarball
29      (jmr in r68786)
30
31    - Fixed failures when fetch target is run without root privileges and the
32      port is then installed with them (#25418, #25937; jmr in r69334, r70271)
33
34    - Fixed upgrading ports where the new version differs from the old version
35      only in epoch (jmr in r69436)
36
37    - Fixed [un]setrequested when using the flat registry format
38      (jmr in r69387)
39
40    - Fixed checking for conflicting ports before installation
41      (#25386, jmr in r69105)
42
43    - Now gracefully handling distfiles that use a tag that is not
44      associated with any sites (#25332, jmr in r68965)
45
46    - Fixed running 'port deps' on multiple ports, and changed its output
47      format back to how it was in 1.8 (#25324, jmr in r68950)
48
49    - Fixed premature privilege dropping (#25331, jmr in r68952)
50
51Release 1.9.1 (2010-06-18):
52    - Fixed a couple of problems with new 1.9 features when using the flat
53      registry format (jmr in r68910, r68913)
54
55    - Ports using the replaced_by option will once again be deactivated when
56      an upgrade is performed on them (#25270, jmr in r68872)
57
58    - Fixed the possibility of some empty directories being left behind when
59      a port is deactivated (#25268, jmr in r68864)
60
61    - Fixed failure to detect conflicts with files that are not provided by
62      a port before activation starts (#25255, jmr in r68849)
63
64    - Fixed problems with distfile names containing spaces (#25245, #25246;
65      jmr in r68816, r68817)
66
67    - Fixed a problem with uninstall when using direct mode, and started
68      running pre/post activate and deactivate procedures when installing and
69      uninstalling in direct mode, respectively (#11562, jmr in r68697)
70
71    - fixed a crasher that affected Tiger (#25194, jmr in r68675, r68680,
72      r68691)
73
74Release 1.9.0 (2010-06-08 by jmr):
75
76    - It is no longer possible to use include statements in Portfiles
77      (raimue in r68206)
78
79    - Command line options can be abbreviated if unambiguous
80      (raimue in r66837)
81
82    - Added a new variable 'os.subplatform'. When os.platform is darwin, the
83      subplatform is either 'macosx' or 'puredarwin'.
84
85    - 'platform' no longer creates a variant, instead it executes the code in
86      the body immediately if the current platform matches the one specified.
87
88    - Using a Portfile with a modification date in the future now causes an
89      informative error early on, instead of just discarding the workdir at
90      the start of every phase. (#24717, raimue in r65246)
91
92    - Fetching from servers that require a cookie to be set now works.
93      (#24584, raimue in r66785)
94
95    - Fixed an error when everything is deleted from the patchfiles list.
96      (#24178, raimue in r65243)
97
98    - Added 'license:' pseudo-port selector. (#24123, perry in r65033)
99
100    - Added new fetch.type 'bzr'. (#23436, perry in r65096)
101
102    - Added 'rdeps' and 'rdependents' actions, recursive versions of 'deps'
103      and 'dependents' respectively. Also added 'depof:', 'rdepof:',
104      'dependentof:' and 'rdependentof:' pseudo-port selectors, for specifying
105      the ports that are dependencies or dependents of the given port.
106      (#22346, jmr in r65858/r66198)
107
108    - Updated the description of the search action in the port(1) man page.
109      (#23749, jmr in r66670)
110
111    - Dry-run now uses /dev/null as the statefile, which prevents a couple of
112      problems involving locking and variant checks.
113      (#21794, #21962; jmr in r66921)
114
115    - The list of dependencies to be installed is now displayed immediately
116      after computing them. (#21540, jmr in r66321)
117
118    - The quick index is now reloaded after syncing in interactive mode, which
119      prevents errors due to it not matching the updated PortIndex.
120      (#20874, jmr in r66319, refinement of patch from carrel.org:edward)
121
122    - The architectures of dependencies are checked when installing a port. If
123      a dependency does not provide the required arch(s), it is rebuilt with
124      +universal if that is possible and will help, otherwise the install fails
125      and an error message explains why. (#20728, jmr in r65087)
126
127    - New supported_archs option allows ports to indicate which architectures
128      they can be built for. The default values of configure.build_arch and
129      configure.universal_archs change based on this list. Set this to
130      'noarch' if a port installs only architecture-independent files.
131      (#20739, jmr in r64372/r64945)
132
133    - Declaring a variant that requires one or more other variants will now
134      correctly set the required variants, so they can be checked with
135      variant_isset. (#19224, jmr in r66642)
136
137    - 'port outdated' now indicates the reason why a port that appears to have
138      the same version as that in the tree is considered outdated. Possible
139      reasons are that the epoch is higher, or the installed version was built
140      on a different OS version. (#19138, jmr in r64960)
141
142    - Distfile names are now percent-escaped in the download URLs when needed.
143      (#18736, jmr in r66794)
144
145    - buildnicevalue is now applied to configure and destroot commands, and to
146      build commands with unusual names. (#18304, raimue in r65076/r65808)
147
148    - Removed hardcoded /opt/local prefix from the base dmg resources.
149      (#17633, jmr in r66776)
150
151    - Fixed an error that occurred when archive mode was enabled but
152      ${prefix}/var/macports/packages did not exist. (#17579, jmr in r66775)
153
154    - Syncing rsync sources now tries to get a platform-specific version of
155      the PortIndex from the server, and skips this if the local copy is less
156      than a day old. All sync methods now update the PortIndex at the end.
157      (#17157, jmr in r66846/r67207)
158
159    - portindex(1) now skips parsing Portfiles whose modification time is
160      older than the current PortIndex, instead reusing the existing entry.
161      (#16235, jmr in r66845)
162
163    - Added a 'requested' flag to the registry that indicates which ports were
164      installed explicitly (as opposed to as a dependency of something else).
165      This enables the new 'requested', 'unrequested' and 'leaves' pseudo-
166      ports, as well as the --follow-dependencies option for uninstall.
167      The setrequested and unsetrequested actions will set and clear the flag,
168      respectively.
169      (#15260, jmr in r64517, r64663, r65546, r66037, r66200, r66215)
170
171    - The macports1.0 directory is now installed to
172      ${prefix}/share/macports/Tcl rather than /Library/Tcl. A symlink will be
173      installed in the old location if there is nothing there already, so
174      'package require macports' will still work in tclsh.
175      (#12943, jmr in r65055)
176
177    - Added warning and error messags when Xcode is old enough to cause
178      problems or too old to use at all, respectively. (#12794, jmr in r66771)
179
180    - Removed the rather outdated copy of sqlite3 from the source tree, made
181      the sqlite3 directory configurable, and added defaults for non-darwin
182      platforms. (#12231, jmr in r64358/r64363)
183
184    - There is a new 'archivefetch' target which is run before unarchive when
185      archive mode is enabled, and attempts to download the archive from a
186      server. There are currently no sites configured to download from (these
187      are stored in the ports tree like the mirror sites used for fetch), but
188      you can set ARCHIVE_SITE_LOCAL in the environment. Note that there is no
189      integrity checking for archives yet. (#8571, jmr in r64816)
190
191    - Now recording negative variants in the registry, which stops deselected
192      variants from being reactivated on upgrade due to default_variants or
193      variants.conf settings. (#2377, jmr in r64533)
194
195    - Added support for pre- and post- procedures for the activate, deactivate
196      and uninstall targets. This feature requires portdbformat sqlite. There
197      was limited support for pre- and post-activate previously, but the
198      procedures were only run when installing the port, not when activating
199      an inactive version. (#1068, #4228, #18273; jmr in r64638/r64639)
200
201    - Integrated the sqlite-based registry2.0 code. The portdbformat variable
202      in macports.conf can be set to 'sqlite' to enable it. Existing flat
203      receipts will be converted the first time port(1) is run with sufficient
204      privileges. Original code by sfiera, fixed and integrated by jmr in
205      r63398 and following. The new format lacks a number of problems that the
206      old one suffers from, including #13054 (dependencies from old port
207      versions stick around across upgrades) and #14123 (files whose paths
208      differ only in case are left behind when uninstalling).
209
210    - Fixed file list in +CONTENTS file in archives. (#21864, jmr in r59882)
211
212    - Fixed a few issues reported with building MacPorts on Linux. (#22716)
213
214    - Upgrade will now always choose the port that is active when following
215      dependencies that could be satisfied by more than one port and more than
216      one of these is installed, instead of choosing the one actually named in
217      the depspec. (#23921, jmr in r60883)
218
219    - Extracting from a disk image ("use_dmg yes") no longer fails when there
220      is a space in $worksrcdir. (#23456, raimue in r67089)
221
222    - Added a configure.sdkroot option which can be used to build against a
223      Mac OS X SDK. It is empty by default unless the value of
224      macosx_deployment_target is not the current OS version, or the universal
225      variant is set and the current platform is PowerPC Tiger. It is also
226      possible to set macosx_deployment_target globally in macports.conf now,
227      but this is unsupported. (#19875, jmr in r66924)
228
229    - Add "fs-traverse -tails" which only returns the part following the
230      specified directory (#21873, raimue in r65785)
231
232    - Allow gcc45 port to be used in configure.compiler (ryandesign in r62223)
233
234    - svn checkouts now use peg revisions instead of operative revisions,
235      so they'll continue to work if a repository gets reorganized
236      (#20777, ryandesign in r60573)
237
238    - Print the location of the log file when a target fails (jmr in r60769)
239
240    - Use CommonCrypto/CommonDigest instead of OpenSSL libcrypto.
241      (toby in r58131, jberry in r59715)
242
243    - New "patch.type gnu" for GNU patch, similar to "build.type gnu"
244      for GNU make. Only makes a difference for BSD patch and BSD make.
245      (afb in r58020)
246
247    - Updated the FreeBSD package (ObjC/Foundation is now optional).
248      (afb in r57889)
249
250    - Don't use "make -j1" for build.jobs=1, but prefer "make" instead.
251      (afb in r57998)
252
253    - Add new "use_xz yes" port option to allow distfiles in xz format.
254      (afb in r57827)
255
256    - Archive mode now uses build_arch in archive names rather than os.arch.
257      (snc in r58977)
258
259    - Add new log command and keeping of debug output for easy access
260      after port has run (GSoC 2009 logging project by enl, merged in r60372)
261
262    - Some of the build_arch flags now appear in LDFLAGS as well, fixing
263      several ports when building for a different architecture (jeremyhu in
264      r60662, jmr in r60680)
265
266    - Fixed 'merge' proc for paths with spaces, and for symlinks on Snow
267      Leopard, and added an error message for when 'merge' is not called
268      correctly (#21852, ryandesign in r58776, r58777, r58778)
269
270Release 1.8.2 (2010-01-01 by jmr):
271
272    - Fixed 'port load' for non-root installations (#21713, jmr in r60774)
273
274    - Fixed a bug that could cause port to hit the open file limit
275      (#22959, jmr in r61770)
276
277    - Fixed an error when installing from source or selfupdating on Tiger with
278      an svn-based ports tree (#20760, jmr in r61302)
279
280    - Fixed an error when selfupdating as root with a prefix that is not owned
281      by root (#21010, jmr in r60798)
282
283    - Stopped uninstall from failing when files in the port image have already
284      been deleted (#22001, jmr in r59318, r59654)
285
286    - Stopped printing command output multiple times on failure (#21084,
287      jmr in r60770)
288
289    - Started showing bug reporting instructions on failure (jmr in r60770)
290
291    - Fixed a bug where 'port dmg' could create too small an image and run out
292      of space (#22404, jmr in r60260)
293
294    - Fixed a bug where reinplace could fail when running port without root
295      privileges (#20896, jmr in r59597)
296
297    - Started setting our own umask since Snow Leopard makes us inherit
298      the user's even when using sudo (#21389, jmr in r59585)
299
300Release 1.8.1 (2009-09-28 by jmr):
301
302    - Installer error messages now display properly even from the Snow Leopard
303      MacPorts dmg. (jmr in r56448)
304
305    - 'fetch.type svn' no longer requires the installation of the subversion
306      port as of Snow Leopard. (toby in r56160; raimue in r56162)
307
308    - Updated manpages and 'port help' output (ryandesign in r56472, r56473,
309      r56474; blb in r56666, r57048, r57131)
310
311    - Fixed syncing using the daily tarball. (#21034, toby in r56889)
312
313    - Fixed 'port load' (#21128, raimue in r57055)
314
315    - Improved error message when an expression on the command line does not
316      match any ports (jmr in r57026)
317
318    - Stopped recording the completion of the install phase in the
319      statefile, which led to errors if the port was uninstalled but the work
320      dir was not cleaned, and the port was then installed again.
321      (jmr/raimue in r57801, 57820)
322
323Release 1.8.0 (2009-08-28 by jmr):
324    - There is now a 'build_arch' variable, available in portfiles and
325      configurable in macports.conf, which sets the CPU architecture that
326      ports should be compiled for (when not building universal). Its default
327      is the same as that of the Apple-supplied /usr/bin/gcc.
328      (#19874, jmr in r53217,r53386,r53420,r53494,r53860,r54236)
329
330    - MacPorts base now works on and has appropriate default settings for
331      Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. (#19874, toby/mww/jkh in r38271,r40060,
332      r40836,r43976,r52397)
333     
334    - MacPorts now requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later. (Panther is not
335      just "unsupported", it really won't work.)
336
337    - The universal_sysroot and universal_target keys have been removed from
338      macports.conf. These settings are now handled automatically.
339      (toby in r52324)
340
341    - Added a 'replaced_by' portfile option. This causes upgrade to deactivate
342      the current port and install the port specified by this option. This
343      also allows ports to be renamed. Upgrade accepts a --no-replace option
344      which disables this behaviour. (#20157, jmr in r54378)
345
346    - The upgrade action now accepts --force and --enforce-variants options.
347      The former causes ports to be rebuilt even if they are not outdated, and
348      the global -f option no longer has this effect (it had too many effects
349      already). The latter causes ports to be rebuilt if the requested
350      variants do not match those installed (even if they are not outdated).
351      (#20156, jmr in r54376)
352
353    - Dependencies can be satisfied by ports that are installed but not
354      available in the ports tree (useful for testing uncommitted ports).
355      (jmr in r52075, r52160)
356
357    - Ports that are installed but not available in the ports tree no longer
358      cause an error when running commands like 'port clean installed'. They
359      are skipped and a warning is printed. (#19253, jmr in r50865)
360
361    - Selfupdate no longer disables readline support unless readline is found
362      in /usr/local, which has historically caused failures.
363      (#19035, jmr in r50868)
364
365    - Uninstalling a port that is not installed now produces an informational
366      message rather than an error. (#18984, jmr in r53709)
367
368    - Added a 'conflicts' portfile option. Conflicting ports will be detected
369      during dependency calculation. (#18794, blb/jmr in r51525)
370
371    - 'port selfupdate' now explicitly states precisely what it does. (#18512)
372
373    - Operating system and architecture information is now shown in debug
374      output. (#18435, raimue in r46669)
375
376    - Fixed a bug that could break some symlinks to man pages. (#18302)
377
378    - Switched to a more efficient algorithm for looking up port information
379      in the index, which makes many operations faster.
380      (#18259, jmr/blb in r47110)
381
382    - MacPorts base now tries to avoid using commands that come from ports, so
383      that a broken port can't break the base code. (#18149)
384
385    - Deleting all the contents of a portfile option no longer unsets the
386      option entirely. (#17865, toby in r44901)
387
388    - Removed the code that upgrades from the old DarwinPorts filesystem
389      layout. Trying to upgrade to 1.8.0+ from a version older than 1.5.0 will
390      produce an error message saying you need to install 1.7.1 first.
391      (#17619, jmr in r53260)
392
393    - port(1) now reports its version as dotted-decimal rather than floating
394      point. (#17420)
395
396    - Dependencies are now always obtained by parsing the Portfile and not
397      from the PortIndex, since the latter can't provide expanded variables
398      like $prefix which may be used in path: depspecs. (#17182)
399
400    - Newline characters in long_description can no longer cause receipt
401      corruption. (#16619, blb in r50663)
402
403    - Now unlocking the filemap when it is not in use. This allows e.g.
404      'port contents' to be run while another port instance is performing
405      installs. Note that running more than one simultaneous port instance
406      that will modify the registry can easily fail, though hopefully
407      without corrupting anything. (#16246, jmr in r51133)
408
409    - Removed some irrelevant debug output that was being printed when a port
410      failed. (#16203, jmr in r53706)
411
412    - Added new depends_fetch and depends_extract options, for dependencies
413      that are needed to fetch or extract the port, respectively.
414      (#15161, jmr in r51780)
415
416    - Packages (including the one for MacPorts base) now correctly indicate
417      that they can only be installed on the root volume.
418      (#14809, jmr in r53250)
419
420    - Using an alternative fetch or extract type now adds appropriate
421      dependencies automatically, e.g. 'use_zip yes' adds a dep on unzip, and
422      'fetch.type svn' adds a dep on subversion. (#13981, jmr in r43782)
423
424    - port(1) should now exit with an appropriate status code when an error is
425      encountered. Use the -p option to continue despite errors.
426      (#13918, jmr in r53704)
427
428    - Proxy information can now be obtained from System Preferences and from
429      macports.conf. The older method using environment variables no longer
430      works out of the box on Leopard due to changes that Apple made to the
431      default /etc/sudoers. (#13158, blb in r47194)
432
433    - Improved handling of malformed variant definitions.
434      (#12596, jmr in r50719, r50721)
435
436    - Cope a little better with missing receipt files. (#19540, jmr in r51138)
437
438    - Fixed a major memory leak in the filemap code.
439      (#12022, pguyot in r51419)
440
441    - Improved the logic for determining whether phases can be skipped. This
442      fixes the specific problems of being unable to build packages of ports
443      that are installed, port not running specific phases (e.g. build)
444      when told to if the port is installed, and inactive dependencies being
445      rebuilt instead of simply activated. (#10881, #16260, jmr in r50490)
446
447    - When archive mode is enabled, ports will no longer be rebuilt if an
448      archive is available. (#10785, jmr in r50416)
449
450    - Activating a port will now first deactivate any other version of the
451      same port that is already active. (#10571, jmr in r53711)
452
453    - Added a 'license' portfile option, which is displayed in 'port info'
454      output. (#7493, jmr in r50801)
455
456    - port lint recognizes new top-level category php (#19329, ryandesign)
457
458    - Do not print header lines when the quiet option -q is set
459      (raimue in r48558)
460
461    - svn.tag is deprecated, use svn.revision instead (raimue in r48222-48223)
462
463    - port -i option has been removed (blb in r48218)
464
465    - ui_warn logs to stderr instead of stdout (raimue in r48217)
466
467    - Remove --pretend option for port selfupdate, use global dry-run option
468      instead (raimue in r48125)
469
470    - port(1) option -y for dry-run (#11892, gwhitney/jmr in r43726)
471
472    - New pseudo-port 'obsolete' to identify ports which are installed but no
473      longer in the PortIndex (raimue in r47253)
474
475    - MacPorts can now perform fetch, extract, patch, configure and build in a
476      user rather than system owned location. By default, this is
477      ~/.macports/opt. This allows MacPorts to do all but the install of the
478      port without root privileges. (gsoc08-privileges)
479
480    - MacPorts can now automatically drop privileges so as to avoid running as
481      root whenever possible. To enable this, pass the desired user to run as
482      to configure with the --with-macports-user option. (gsoc08-privileges)
483
484    - The Portfile format has a number of new boolean attributes to indicate
485      when an action should or should not be run with root privileges:
486      'patch.asroot', 'build.asroot', 'configure.asroot', 'destroot.asroot',
487      and 'install.asroot'. The default for all is "no". If the prefix folder
488      (by default /opt/local) is not writable, MacPorts will attempt to
489      elevate privileges to root for the install phase. (gsoc08-privileges)
490
491    - A "make group" command has been added to the Makefile and a
492      "--with-shared-directory" switch to the configure script. Running "make
493      group" will create a macports group. "--with-shared-directory" will let
494      let the group specified by "--with-install-group" have full read write
495      access to the /opt/local hierarchy. This will allow users who are
496      members of the new macports group to have full write permissions to
497      /opt/local and its subfolders, and hence to install ports which only
498      affect that hierarchy without requiring root privileges.
499      (gsoc08-privileges)
500
501    - A switch called "--with-no-root-privileges" has been added for use by
502      user installing MacPorts for their own use only. An example configure
503      command would be "./configure
504      --prefix=/Users/{your-user-name-here}/.macports/opt
505      --with-no-root-privileges" (gsoc08-privileges)
506
507    - Add several new options to port search, looks in name and description by
508      default (#15434, raimue)
509
510    - Add xpkg package type, xar-based format with XML. (afb)
511
512    - Split portpkg creation out from portsubmit phase. (afb)
513
514    - Make dependencies displayed in port info respect variants
515      specified in variants.conf; collapse port deps to be an alias
516      for port info with appropriate flags. Note this changes output
517      format of port deps somewhat.  (#11891, gwhitney in r44340)
518
519    - Make dependencies in port upgrade respect variants as specified
520      (in order of precedence) on command line, latest installed
521      version, or variants.conf .  (#8221, gwhitney in r44362)
522
523    - Add select action, which integrates *_select tools into port.
524      (#17477, perry)
525
526    - The variants action additionally shows default variants, conflicting
527      variants and variants' dependencies. (#14178, #15628, perry)
528
529    - Implicit variants (e.g., darwin) can no longer be explicitly
530      set/unset. (#12563, perry in r46938, jmr in r53371)
531
532Release 1.7.1 (2009-03-28 by raimue):
533    - Trailing slashes are stripped from the prefix passed to configure, which
534      prevents incorrect mtree violation warnings. (#13789)
535
536    - Fix freshmeat-based livecheck (#18887)
537
538    - Fix issue on direct-mode installs where checking for installed ports
539      wasn't properly looking (it only matched for revision 0 and no
540      variants) (#17762)
541
542    - Add new "use_7z yes" port option to allow distfiles in 7z format
543      (#18521, ryandesign)
544
545    - port lint no longer requires variable master_sites if the port has no
546      distfiles (#18479, ryandesign)
547
548    - Upgrade will no longer accept ports that are not installed (but it still
549      installs new ports as dependencies if needed). In particular, this means
550      that "port upgrade all" will no longer proceed to install every
551      available port. (jmr in r46052)
552
553    - Add mkdtemp Tcl command to create temporary directories. (#17181, perry)
554
555    - Add 'apple-gcc-4.2' option to configure.compiler (#18426, ryandesign)
556
557    - Create ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} in destroot
558      automatically (r45614, raimue)
559
560    - Make the postflight procedure a bit smarter about which login files
561      to update for bash and tcsh (#17588)
562
563    - Add error messages to package installers when the wrong OS package
564      is being installed (#13141)
565
566Release 1.7.0 (2008-12-13 by blb):
567    - Global variant descriptions using variant_descriptions.conf in the new
568      resources directory in the ports tree (#14482, raimue)
569
570    - Move port resources into the ports tree (#14553, raimue and blb)
571
572    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
573
574    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
575
576    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
577
578    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
579      --nitpick is used (#14799)
580
581    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
582
583    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
584
585    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
586      phases (#11897)
587
588    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
589      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
590
591    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
592      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
593      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
594      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
595
596    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
597      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
598      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
599      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
600      in r38683)
601
602    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
603
604    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
605      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
606      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
607
608    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
609      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
610      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
611      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, r37621)
612
613    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
614      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
615      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
616      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
617
618    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
619      (#15577, afb in r37501)
620
621    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
622
623    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
624      running (raimue)
625
626    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
627      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
628      jmr in r37217, r37255)
629
630    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
631      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
632      r37121)
633
634    - Stopped 'port -R upgrade' from processing more ports than it should, and
635      from processing ports multiple times. (#10827, jmr in r37046)
636
637    - Don't include build.nice and build.jobs in destroot.cmd (#15295)
638
639    - The default universal variant is no longer added when we know it won't
640      work. (#12170, jmr in r36764)
641
642    - During upgrade, if the latest installed version of a port is not active,
643      the currently active version (if any) is now deactivated before trying
644      to activate the latest version. (#12013, jmr in r36762)
645
646    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is
647      inactive and there is at least one other version of the same port
648      installed (#11501, jmr in r36747)
649
650    - Duplicate entries can no longer build up in the dependency map (#8763,
651      jmr in r36745)
652
653    - In image mode, dependencies are no longer treated as being satisfied
654      when the satisfying port is not active (#7361, jmr in r36735)
655
656    - Fixed a bug where upgrade could create too many nested subdirectories
657      in distpath, archive.destpath and unarchive.srcpath (#11971, jmr in
658      r36679, r36687, r36688)
659
660    - Declaring a dependency on a nonexistent port now always causes an error
661      (#10768, jmr in r36648)
662
663    - Explicitly use unsetenv(3) on all environment variables (#13930, #16010,
664      #16233)
665
666    - Make the included tclthread compile on Leopard if configured (#13495)
667
668    - Allow distfiles to be disk images with "use_dmg yes" port option (#13509,
669      ryandesign in r36708)
670
671    - ruby.setup now takes a type 'fetch' to just fetch/extract (eridius in r35773)
672
673    - Fetch now prefers mirrors with lower ping times (#14891, jmr in r35748,
674      r35806, r35808)
675
676    - Fetching of daily snapshot tarballs of the ports tree as an alternative to rsync
677      (raimue in r35647, r35648)
678
679    - port uninstall now takes --follow-dependents to uninstall all dependents
680      (#14637, eridius/raimue in r34977, r35042, r36160)
681
682    - New fetch.type git (#14232, eridius in r34875)
683
684    - fixed "port mdmg" getting block size wrong for the disk image (#13968, afb in r34844)
685
686    - always set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, to avoid bugs with older glibtool (afb in r34541)
687
688    - port lint now checks all dependencies so that the ports actually exist (#14380)
689
690    - added target_state to avoid the need for privileges for lint/livecheck (#13458)
691
692    - Overhauled output for port info/deps/dependents/search (raimue in
693      r34354, r34371, r34391, r34395, r34402, r34420)
694
695    - Revert the default +universal MDT/SDK to 10.4/10.4u on Tiger and 10.5/10.5 on Leopard
696
697    - port lint shouldn't require variable master_sites for fetch.type != standard (#14377)
698
699    - Add "tcldoc" documentation comments and "tcldox" Doxyfile for doxygen (#12048)
700
701    - Add --pretend and --nosync flags to selfupdate (raimue in r33938, r33939,
702      r33940, r33941)
703
704    - Work around autoconf X11 detection bugs on darwin (afb in r33717)
705
706    - Fix bugs with X11 lib detection on Leopard (#14089, afb in r33716)
707
708    - Add configure.{optflags,m32,m64,march,mtune} (afb in r33503, r33599)
709
710    - Add applications_dir and frameworks_dir configuration (r33499, r33722)
711
712    - Remove some hardcoded paths (such as /usr/X11R6, /usr/bin/install) (afb in r33501, r33619, r33620)
713
714    - Add configure.{universal_target,universal_sysroot,universal_archs} (afb in r33478).
715
716    - Change default +universal platform back to: 10.4/10.4u.sdk/i386 ppc (r33087, r33107).
717
718    - Add `port platform` info action that outputs current platform (#12302, afb in r32724).
719
720    - Enable 64 bit environment, ppc64 x86_64, for all +universal builds (mww in r32194).
721
722    - Add 'merge' function for merging multiple (single arch) destroots into one (universal)
723      destroot (mww in r31954).
724
725    - If checksum is mismatched, and in verbose mode, present a corrected pre-fabricated checksum statement
726      to make it easy to update a port (jberry in r32441).
727
728    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_prefix"" runtime error on Panther
729      (eridius in r32525).
730
731    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_channels"" runtime error on Panther
732      (eridius in r32514).
733
734    - "port lint" now recognizes non-canonical modelines (afb in r32480).
735
736    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
737
738    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
739      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_version (jmpp in r32353).
740
741    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents
742      (jmpp in r32336).
743
744    - Fixed a Panther build failure due to missing sqlite headers (jmpp in r32212).
745
746    - Fixed a build failure by passing the base/src/cregistry/cregistry.a archive through ranlib (jmpp in r32105).
747
748
749Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
750
751    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
752      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
753      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
754      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
755
756    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
757      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
758
759    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
760
761    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
762      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
763
764    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
765      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
766      (#10651, jberry in r31139, r31140).
767
768    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
769      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
770      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
771      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).
772
773    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
774
775    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
776      multiple files (mww in r31028)
777
778    - add optional configure.pipe output (afb in r29604 & r30824)
779
780    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)
781
782    - add configure.[awk|bison|pkg_config|pkg_config_path] (r30761)
783
784    - Auto-mode for number of parallel build threads (if number of jobs is set to "0") (r30739)
785
786    - Add option use_parallel_build [yes|no] to declare if a port can be built in parallel (r30714).
787
788    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).
789
790    - Display warnings when using old versions of Mac OS X and Xcode Tools
791      (#12794, afb in r30338 & r30477)
792
793    - Remove configure.macosx_deployment_target, add global macosx_deployment_target
794      (eridius in r30396).
795
796    - add support for LZMA compression, for making .tlz archives (afb in r30307)
797
798    - add configure.[perl|python|ruby] for interpreters, .install for avoiding breakage
799      due to coreutils, .libs
800
801    - added startupitem.netchange boolean flag (#12931, N_Ox in r30086).
802
803    - added generic GNU livecheck (N_Ox in r29812).
804
805    - fixed bug where all .mpkg packages were missing their welcome page (afb in r29517)
806
807    - better defaults for implicit ui_channels behaviour (eridius in r29498).
808
809    - prevent creating PKG packages with /etc or /var or /tmp (#2102, afb in r29445)
810
811    - add optional configure.ccache and configure.distcc filters (#5390, afb in r29438)
812
813    - Explicitly sort fs-traverse so it behaves predictably on Linux systems
814      (#12622, eridius in r29412).
815
816    - add configure.objc/objcflags for Objective-C
817
818    - add optional build.nice (0) and build.jobs (1) modifiers (afb in r28634 & r28673)
819
820    - make tclobjc1.0 compile with GNUstep and NXConstantString class (afb in r28668)
821
822    - fix bsdmake/gnumake defaults for FreeBSD and Linux platforms (afb in r28660)
823
824    - port lint command, for Portfile verification (#463, afb in r28170)
825
826    - add configure.macosx_deployment_target for configure flags
827
828    - add configure.javac/classpath for Java
829
830    - add configure.fflags/fcflags/f90flags for Fortran flags
831
832    - Mark "python" group code as deprecated
833
834    - Add group code for Python 3.0
835
836    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
837
838    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
839      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
840
841    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
842
843    - Chris Pickel's GSoC2007 work: registry2.0 & cregistry (mainly r27518 & r27520)
844
845    - Eugene Pimenov's GSoC2007 work: Trace lib on unix sockets (r26682).
846
847    - Elias Pipping's GSoC2007 work: merge.rb on his personal /users/pipping svn dir.
848
849
850Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
851
852    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
853      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
854      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
855
856
857Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
858
859    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
860      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
861
862    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
863      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
864
865    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
866
867    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
868      (mww in r27199).
869
870    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
871
872    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
873
874    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
875
876    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
877      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
878
879    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
880
881    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
882
883    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
884
885
886Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
887
888    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
889      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
890      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
891      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
892      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
893
894    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
895
896    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
897
898    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
899      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
900      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
901      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
902      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
903
904    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
905
906    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
907      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
908
909    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
910
911    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
912      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
913
914    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
915      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
916      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
917      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
918      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
919      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
920
921    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
922
923    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
924
925    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
926
927    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
928      to detect problems between required and negated variants
929      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
930
931    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
932      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
933      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
934      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
935
936    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
937      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
938
939    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
940      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
941      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
942
943    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
944      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
945         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
946         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
947      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
948      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
949      (jberry r25795).
950
951    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
952
953    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
954      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
955      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
956
957    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
958      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
959
960    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
961      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
962
963    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
964      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
965      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
966      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
967      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
968      (boeyms in r25310)
969
970Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
971
972    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
973
974Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
975
976    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
977
978    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
979      This allows information about variants to be displayed (e.g. dependencies).
980      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
981      (eridius r25255).
982
983    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
984
985    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
986      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
987      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
988
989    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
990      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
991
992    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
993      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
994      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
995      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
996      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
997      (boeyms r25110)
998
999    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
1000      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
1001      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
1002      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
1003
1004    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
1005
1006    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
1007      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
1008
1009    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
1010      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
1011
1012    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
1013
1014    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
1015      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
1016
1017    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
1018      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
1019      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
1020      (jberry r25146)
1021
1022    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
1023         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
1024         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
1025         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
1026           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
1027           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
1028
1029        Example:
1030
1031            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
1032                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
1033            }
1034
1035        (jberry r25147)
1036
1037    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
1038      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
1039
1040
1041Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
1042
1043    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
1044      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
1045      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
1046      it differently.
1047
1048    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
1049      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
1050      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
1051      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
1052      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
1053
1054    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
1055      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
1056      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
1057
1058    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
1059
1060    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
1061
1062    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
1063      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
1064
1065    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
1066
1067    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
1068
1069    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
1070      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
1071      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
1072
1073    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
1074      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
1075
1076    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
1077      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
1078
1079    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
1080      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
1081
1082    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
1083
1084    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
1085      (pguyot r24273).
1086
1087    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
1088      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
1089      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
1090
1091    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
1092      This work is in progress. (jberry)
1093       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
1094       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
1095         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
1096
1097    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
1098      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
1099
1100    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
1101      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
1102
1103    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
1104      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
1105
1106    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
1107
1108    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
1109
1110Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
1111
1112    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
1113      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
1114      (jberry r24151).
1115
1116    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
1117      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
1118      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
1119      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
1120      (pipping r24148).
1121
1122Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
1123
1124    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
1125      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
1126
1127    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
1128      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
1129
1130    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
1131      for submitter information.
1132      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
1133        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
1134        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
1135            - PORTSRC
1136            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
1137            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
1138          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
1139       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
1140
1141    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
1142      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
1143
1144    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
1145      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
1146      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
1147      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1148
1149    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1150
1151    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
1152      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
1153
1154Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
1155
1156    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
1157      (pipping in r23343).
1158
1159    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
1160      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
1161
1162    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
1163      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
1164      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
1165
1166    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
1167      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
1168
1169    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
1170      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
1171      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
1172
1173    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
1174
1175    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
1176      r22313).
1177
1178    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
1179      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
1180      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
1181      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
1182
1183    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
1184      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
1185
1186    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
1187      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
1188
1189    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
1190      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
1191
1192    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
1193      r23967)
1194
1195
1196Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
1197
1198    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
1199      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
1200
1201    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
1202
1203    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
1204      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
1205
1206    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
1207
1208    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
1209
1210    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
1211      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
1212
1213    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
1214
1215    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
1216
1217    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
1218      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
1219
1220    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
1221      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
1222
1223    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
1224      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
1225      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
1226
1227    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
1228
1229    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
1230      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
1231
1232    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
1233      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
1234
1235    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
1236      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
1237
1238    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
1239
1240    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
1241
1242    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
1243      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
1244
1245    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
1246
1247    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
1248
1249    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
1250
1251    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
1252      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
1253
1254    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
1255      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
1256
1257    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
1258
1259    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
1260
1261
1262Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
1263
1264    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
1265      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
1266
1267    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
1268
1269    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
1270      code. (pguyot)
1271
1272    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
1273      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
1274
1275    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
1276      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
1277
1278    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
1279      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
1280      /usr/local. (pguyot)
1281
1282    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
1283
1284    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
1285      (josh_root, blb)
1286
1287    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
1288      are modified. (pguyot)
1289
1290    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
1291      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1292
1293    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
1294      variable. (pguyot)
1295
1296    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
1297      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
1298      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
1299
1300Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
1301
1302    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
1303
1304    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
1305      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
1306
1307    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
1308      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
1309      SVN. (pguyot)
1310
1311    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
1312      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
1313
1314    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
1315      (jberry)
1316
1317    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
1318      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
1319
1320    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
1321
1322    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
1323
1324    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1325
1326    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
1327       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
1328       * mention interactive and batch modes
1329       * document extensions to info command.
1330
1331    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
1332
1333    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
1334      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
1335      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
1336
1337Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
1338
1339    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
1340      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
1341      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
1342
1343    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
1344      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
1345
1346    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
1347      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
1348
1349    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
1350
1351    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
1352
1353    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
1354      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
1355
1356    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
1357      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
1358
1359    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
1360
1361    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
1362      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
1363
1364    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
1365
1366    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
1367      (jberry)
1368
1369    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
1370      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
1371      (landonf)
1372
1373    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
1374      installed. (jmpp)
1375
1376    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
1377      project path. (pguyot)
1378
1379    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
1380      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
1381
1382    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
1383      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
1384
1385    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
1386      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
1387
1388    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
1389      (olegb)
1390
1391    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
1392      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
1393
1394    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
1395      iterating). (jberry)
1396
1397    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
1398      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
1399      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
1400
1401    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
1402
1403    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
1404      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
1405      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
1406      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
1407      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
1408      shoot yourself. (jberry)
1409
1410    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
1411      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
1412
1413    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
1414      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
1415
1416    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
1417
1418    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
1419      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
1420        several bug fixes.
1421      * cleaned up the code.
1422      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
1423        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
1424        reported creations).
1425      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
1426        overwritten.
1427
1428    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
1429
1430    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
1431      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
1432      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
1433
1434        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
1435          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
1436          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
1437
1438        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
1439          input following any commands given as arguments.
1440
1441        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
1442          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
1443          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
1444            #!/usr/bin/env portf
1445
1446        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
1447
1448        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
1449
1450        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
1451          interactive/batch mode.
1452
1453        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
1454
1455        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
1456          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
1457          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
1458
1459    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
1460      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
1461      (jberry).
1462
1463    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
1464      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
1465
1466    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
1467      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
1468      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
1469
1470    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
1471      (pguyot)
1472
1473    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
1474
1475    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
1476      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
1477      (jberry)
1478
1479    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
1480      MacOS X. (mww)
1481
1482    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
1483      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
1484      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
1485      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
1486      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
1487      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
1488      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
1489      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
1490      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
1491      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
1492      (jberry) 2006-02-16
1493
1494Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
1495
1496    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
1497      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
1498      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
1499      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
1500      fat, configure as follows:
1501        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
1502                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
1503
1504    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
1505      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
1506      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
1507
1508Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
1509
1510    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
1511      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
1512      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
1513        port uninstall vim @1.0
1514      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
1515      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
1516
1517    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
1518      destroot, too. (mww)
1519
1520    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
1521      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
1522
1523    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
1524      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
1525      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
1526
1527    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
1528      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
1529      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
1530
1531    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
1532      groups of ports.
1533      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
1534      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
1535
1536      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
1537        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
1538
1539      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
1540      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
1541      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
1542      The selectors are:
1543      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
1544      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
1545      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
1546
1547    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
1548      ports or groups of ports.
1549      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
1550
1551    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
1552      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
1553      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
1554      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
1555
1556    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
1557      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
1558
1559    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
1560      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
1561      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
1562
1563    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
1564      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
1565      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
1566      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
1567      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
1568      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
1569
1570    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
1571      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
1572      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
1573
1574    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
1575      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
1576
1577    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
1578      ones considered harmful (blb)
1579
1580    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
1581      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
1582
1583    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
1584      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
1585
1586    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
1587        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
1588          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
1589        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
1590          reports (pguyot)
1591        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
1592
1593    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
1594      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
1595
1596    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
1597
1598    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
1599      echo (the expanded arguments),
1600      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
1601      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
1602      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
1603      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
1604      (jberry)
1605
1606    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
1607      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
1608      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
1609      in a similar fashion (jberry)
