6Unreleased changes:
7
8    - Add livecheck.ignore_sslcert; setting fetch.ignore_sslcert does no
9      longer apply to livecheck. distcheck now respects fetch.ignore_sslcert.
10      (#17063, raimue in r70975, r70979, r70982)
11
12    - Add SHA256 checksums in addition to MD5, SHA1 and RIPEMD160.
13      (afb in r57888, r57913; snc in r68955)
14
15Release 1.9.2 (future):
16
17    - Added more locking to avoid TOCTOU errors when running multiple port(1)
18      instances (#19935, jmr in r70174)
19
20    - Fixed -q not suppressing output from 'port lint' (#25880, jmr in r70163)
21
22    - Added a helpful message when there is a checksum mismatch and the
23      distfile appears to incorrectly be a HTML document (#25128,
24      ryandesign/jmr in r70143)
25
26    - Now checking early on if there are sufficient privileges to install,
27      and failing before building anything if not (#25671, jmr in r70135)
28
29    - Avoided possible failure when the -u option is used when upgrading a
30      port that is marked as being replaced by another (jmr in r69022)
31
32    - Using the platform-specific PortIndex when syncing using a daily tarball
33      (jmr in r68786)
34
35    - Fixed failures when fetch target is run without root privileges and the
36      port is then installed with them (#25418, #25937; jmr in r69334, r70271)
37
38    - Fixed upgrading ports where the new version differs from the old version
39      only in epoch (jmr in r69436)
40
41    - Fixed [un]setrequested when using the flat registry format
42      (jmr in r69387)
43
44    - Fixed checking for conflicting ports before installation
45      (#25386, jmr in r69105)
46
47    - Now gracefully handling distfiles that use a tag that is not
48      associated with any sites (#25332, jmr in r68965)
49
50    - Fixed running 'port deps' on multiple ports, and changed its output
51      format back to how it was in 1.8 (#25324, jmr in r68950)
52
53    - Fixed premature privilege dropping (#25331, jmr in r68952)
54
55Release 1.9.1 (2010-06-18):
56    - Fixed a couple of problems with new 1.9 features when using the flat
57      registry format (jmr in r68910, r68913)
58
59    - Ports using the replaced_by option will once again be deactivated when
60      an upgrade is performed on them (#25270, jmr in r68872)
61
62    - Fixed the possibility of some empty directories being left behind when
63      a port is deactivated (#25268, jmr in r68864)
64
65    - Fixed failure to detect conflicts with files that are not provided by
66      a port before activation starts (#25255, jmr in r68849)
67
68    - Fixed problems with distfile names containing spaces (#25245, #25246;
69      jmr in r68816, r68817)
70
71    - Fixed a problem with uninstall when using direct mode, and started
72      running pre/post activate and deactivate procedures when installing and
73      uninstalling in direct mode, respectively (#11562, jmr in r68697)
74
75    - fixed a crasher that affected Tiger (#25194, jmr in r68675, r68680,
76      r68691)
77
78Release 1.9.0 (2010-06-08 by jmr):
79
80    - It is no longer possible to use include statements in Portfiles
81      (raimue in r68206)
82
83    - Command line options can be abbreviated if unambiguous
84      (raimue in r66837)
85
86    - Added a new variable 'os.subplatform'. When os.platform is darwin, the
87      subplatform is either 'macosx' or 'puredarwin'.
88
89    - 'platform' no longer creates a variant, instead it executes the code in
90      the body immediately if the current platform matches the one specified.
91
92    - Using a Portfile with a modification date in the future now causes an
93      informative error early on, instead of just discarding the workdir at
94      the start of every phase. (#24717, raimue in r65246)
95
96    - Fetching from servers that require a cookie to be set now works.
97      (#24584, raimue in r66785)
98
99    - Fixed an error when everything is deleted from the patchfiles list.
100      (#24178, raimue in r65243)
101
102    - Added 'license:' pseudo-port selector. (#24123, perry in r65033)
103
104    - Added new fetch.type 'bzr'. (#23436, perry in r65096)
105
106    - Added 'rdeps' and 'rdependents' actions, recursive versions of 'deps'
107      and 'dependents' respectively. Also added 'depof:', 'rdepof:',
108      'dependentof:' and 'rdependentof:' pseudo-port selectors, for specifying
109      the ports that are dependencies or dependents of the given port.
110      (#22346, jmr in r65858/r66198)
111
112    - Updated the description of the search action in the port(1) man page.
113      (#23749, jmr in r66670)
114
115    - Dry-run now uses /dev/null as the statefile, which prevents a couple of
116      problems involving locking and variant checks.
117      (#21794, #21962; jmr in r66921)
118
119    - The list of dependencies to be installed is now displayed immediately
120      after computing them. (#21540, jmr in r66321)
121
122    - The quick index is now reloaded after syncing in interactive mode, which
123      prevents errors due to it not matching the updated PortIndex.
124      (#20874, jmr in r66319, refinement of patch from carrel.org:edward)
125
126    - The architectures of dependencies are checked when installing a port. If
127      a dependency does not provide the required arch(s), it is rebuilt with
128      +universal if that is possible and will help, otherwise the install fails
129      and an error message explains why. (#20728, jmr in r65087)
130
131    - New supported_archs option allows ports to indicate which architectures
132      they can be built for. The default values of configure.build_arch and
133      configure.universal_archs change based on this list. Set this to
134      'noarch' if a port installs only architecture-independent files.
135      (#20739, jmr in r64372/r64945)
136
137    - Declaring a variant that requires one or more other variants will now
138      correctly set the required variants, so they can be checked with
139      variant_isset. (#19224, jmr in r66642)
140
141    - 'port outdated' now indicates the reason why a port that appears to have
142      the same version as that in the tree is considered outdated. Possible
143      reasons are that the epoch is higher, or the installed version was built
144      on a different OS version. (#19138, jmr in r64960)
145
146    - Distfile names are now percent-escaped in the download URLs when needed.
147      (#18736, jmr in r66794)
148
149    - buildnicevalue is now applied to configure and destroot commands, and to
150      build commands with unusual names. (#18304, raimue in r65076/r65808)
151
152    - Removed hardcoded /opt/local prefix from the base dmg resources.
153      (#17633, jmr in r66776)
154
155    - Fixed an error that occurred when archive mode was enabled but
156      ${prefix}/var/macports/packages did not exist. (#17579, jmr in r66775)
157
158    - Syncing rsync sources now tries to get a platform-specific version of
159      the PortIndex from the server, and skips this if the local copy is less
160      than a day old. All sync methods now update the PortIndex at the end.
161      (#17157, jmr in r66846/r67207)
162
163    - portindex(1) now skips parsing Portfiles whose modification time is
164      older than the current PortIndex, instead reusing the existing entry.
165      (#16235, jmr in r66845)
166
167    - Added a 'requested' flag to the registry that indicates which ports were
168      installed explicitly (as opposed to as a dependency of something else).
169      This enables the new 'requested', 'unrequested' and 'leaves' pseudo-
170      ports, as well as the --follow-dependencies option for uninstall.
171      The setrequested and unsetrequested actions will set and clear the flag,
172      respectively.
173      (#15260, jmr in r64517, r64663, r65546, r66037, r66200, r66215)
174
175    - The macports1.0 directory is now installed to
176      ${prefix}/share/macports/Tcl rather than /Library/Tcl. A symlink will be
177      installed in the old location if there is nothing there already, so
178      'package require macports' will still work in tclsh.
179      (#12943, jmr in r65055)
180
181    - Added warning and error messags when Xcode is old enough to cause
182      problems or too old to use at all, respectively. (#12794, jmr in r66771)
183
184    - Removed the rather outdated copy of sqlite3 from the source tree, made
185      the sqlite3 directory configurable, and added defaults for non-darwin
186      platforms. (#12231, jmr in r64358/r64363)
187
188    - There is a new 'archivefetch' target which is run before unarchive when
189      archive mode is enabled, and attempts to download the archive from a
190      server. There are currently no sites configured to download from (these
191      are stored in the ports tree like the mirror sites used for fetch), but
192      you can set ARCHIVE_SITE_LOCAL in the environment. Note that there is no
193      integrity checking for archives yet. (#8571, jmr in r64816)
194
195    - Now recording negative variants in the registry, which stops deselected
196      variants from being reactivated on upgrade due to default_variants or
197      variants.conf settings. (#2377, jmr in r64533)
198
199    - Added support for pre- and post- procedures for the activate, deactivate
200      and uninstall targets. This feature requires portdbformat sqlite. There
201      was limited support for pre- and post-activate previously, but the
202      procedures were only run when installing the port, not when activating
203      an inactive version. (#1068, #4228, #18273; jmr in r64638/r64639)
204
205    - Integrated the sqlite-based registry2.0 code. The portdbformat variable
206      in macports.conf can be set to 'sqlite' to enable it. Existing flat
207      receipts will be converted the first time port(1) is run with sufficient
208      privileges. Original code by sfiera, fixed and integrated by jmr in
209      r63398 and following. The new format lacks a number of problems that the
210      old one suffers from, including #13054 (dependencies from old port
211      versions stick around across upgrades) and #14123 (files whose paths
212      differ only in case are left behind when uninstalling).
213
214    - Fixed file list in +CONTENTS file in archives. (#21864, jmr in r59882)
215
216    - Fixed a few issues reported with building MacPorts on Linux. (#22716)
217
218    - Upgrade will now always choose the port that is active when following
219      dependencies that could be satisfied by more than one port and more than
220      one of these is installed, instead of choosing the one actually named in
221      the depspec. (#23921, jmr in r60883)
222
223    - Extracting from a disk image ("use_dmg yes") no longer fails when there
224      is a space in $worksrcdir. (#23456, raimue in r67089)
225
226    - Added a configure.sdkroot option which can be used to build against a
227      Mac OS X SDK. It is empty by default unless the value of
228      macosx_deployment_target is not the current OS version, or the universal
229      variant is set and the current platform is PowerPC Tiger. It is also
230      possible to set macosx_deployment_target globally in macports.conf now,
231      but this is unsupported. (#19875, jmr in r66924)
232
233    - Add "fs-traverse -tails" which only returns the part following the
234      specified directory (#21873, raimue in r65785)
235
236    - Allow gcc45 port to be used in configure.compiler (ryandesign in r62223)
237
238    - svn checkouts now use peg revisions instead of operative revisions,
239      so they'll continue to work if a repository gets reorganized
240      (#20777, ryandesign in r60573)
241
242    - Print the location of the log file when a target fails (jmr in r60769)
243
244    - Use CommonCrypto/CommonDigest instead of OpenSSL libcrypto.
245      (toby in r58131, jberry in r59715)
246
247    - New "patch.type gnu" for GNU patch, similar to "build.type gnu"
248      for GNU make. Only makes a difference for BSD patch and BSD make.
249      (afb in r58020)
250
251    - Updated the FreeBSD package (ObjC/Foundation is now optional).
252      (afb in r57889)
253
254    - Don't use "make -j1" for build.jobs=1, but prefer "make" instead.
255      (afb in r57998)
256
257    - Add new "use_xz yes" port option to allow distfiles in xz format.
258      (afb in r57827)
259
260    - Archive mode now uses build_arch in archive names rather than os.arch.
261      (snc in r58977)
262
263    - Add new log command and keeping of debug output for easy access
264      after port has run (GSoC 2009 logging project by enl, merged in r60372)
265
266    - Some of the build_arch flags now appear in LDFLAGS as well, fixing
267      several ports when building for a different architecture (jeremyhu in
268      r60662, jmr in r60680)
269
270    - Fixed 'merge' proc for paths with spaces, and for symlinks on Snow
271      Leopard, and added an error message for when 'merge' is not called
272      correctly (#21852, ryandesign in r58776, r58777, r58778)
273
274Release 1.8.2 (2010-01-01 by jmr):
275
276    - Fixed 'port load' for non-root installations (#21713, jmr in r60774)
277
278    - Fixed a bug that could cause port to hit the open file limit
279      (#22959, jmr in r61770)
280
281    - Fixed an error when installing from source or selfupdating on Tiger with
282      an svn-based ports tree (#20760, jmr in r61302)
283
284    - Fixed an error when selfupdating as root with a prefix that is not owned
285      by root (#21010, jmr in r60798)
286
287    - Stopped uninstall from failing when files in the port image have already
288      been deleted (#22001, jmr in r59318, r59654)
289
290    - Stopped printing command output multiple times on failure (#21084,
291      jmr in r60770)
292
293    - Started showing bug reporting instructions on failure (jmr in r60770)
294
295    - Fixed a bug where 'port dmg' could create too small an image and run out
296      of space (#22404, jmr in r60260)
297
298    - Fixed a bug where reinplace could fail when running port without root
299      privileges (#20896, jmr in r59597)
300
301    - Started setting our own umask since Snow Leopard makes us inherit
302      the user's even when using sudo (#21389, jmr in r59585)
303
304Release 1.8.1 (2009-09-28 by jmr):
305
306    - Installer error messages now display properly even from the Snow Leopard
307      MacPorts dmg. (jmr in r56448)
308
309    - 'fetch.type svn' no longer requires the installation of the subversion
310      port as of Snow Leopard. (toby in r56160; raimue in r56162)
311
312    - Updated manpages and 'port help' output (ryandesign in r56472, r56473,
313      r56474; blb in r56666, r57048, r57131)
314
315    - Fixed syncing using the daily tarball. (#21034, toby in r56889)
316
317    - Fixed 'port load' (#21128, raimue in r57055)
318
319    - Improved error message when an expression on the command line does not
320      match any ports (jmr in r57026)
321
322    - Stopped recording the completion of the install phase in the
323      statefile, which led to errors if the port was uninstalled but the work
324      dir was not cleaned, and the port was then installed again.
325      (jmr/raimue in r57801, 57820)
326
327Release 1.8.0 (2009-08-28 by jmr):
328    - There is now a 'build_arch' variable, available in portfiles and
329      configurable in macports.conf, which sets the CPU architecture that
330      ports should be compiled for (when not building universal). Its default
331      is the same as that of the Apple-supplied /usr/bin/gcc.
332      (#19874, jmr in r53217,r53386,r53420,r53494,r53860,r54236)
333
334    - MacPorts base now works on and has appropriate default settings for
335      Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. (#19874, toby/mww/jkh in r38271,r40060,
336      r40836,r43976,r52397)
337     
338    - MacPorts now requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later. (Panther is not
339      just "unsupported", it really won't work.)
340
341    - The universal_sysroot and universal_target keys have been removed from
342      macports.conf. These settings are now handled automatically.
343      (toby in r52324)
344
345    - Added a 'replaced_by' portfile option. This causes upgrade to deactivate
346      the current port and install the port specified by this option. This
347      also allows ports to be renamed. Upgrade accepts a --no-replace option
348      which disables this behaviour. (#20157, jmr in r54378)
349
350    - The upgrade action now accepts --force and --enforce-variants options.
351      The former causes ports to be rebuilt even if they are not outdated, and
352      the global -f option no longer has this effect (it had too many effects
353      already). The latter causes ports to be rebuilt if the requested
354      variants do not match those installed (even if they are not outdated).
355      (#20156, jmr in r54376)
356
357    - Dependencies can be satisfied by ports that are installed but not
358      available in the ports tree (useful for testing uncommitted ports).
359      (jmr in r52075, r52160)
360
361    - Ports that are installed but not available in the ports tree no longer
362      cause an error when running commands like 'port clean installed'. They
363      are skipped and a warning is printed. (#19253, jmr in r50865)
364
365    - Selfupdate no longer disables readline support unless readline is found
366      in /usr/local, which has historically caused failures.
367      (#19035, jmr in r50868)
368
369    - Uninstalling a port that is not installed now produces an informational
370      message rather than an error. (#18984, jmr in r53709)
371
372    - Added a 'conflicts' portfile option. Conflicting ports will be detected
373      during dependency calculation. (#18794, blb/jmr in r51525)
374
375    - 'port selfupdate' now explicitly states precisely what it does. (#18512)
376
377    - Operating system and architecture information is now shown in debug
378      output. (#18435, raimue in r46669)
379
380    - Fixed a bug that could break some symlinks to man pages. (#18302)
381
382    - Switched to a more efficient algorithm for looking up port information
383      in the index, which makes many operations faster.
384      (#18259, jmr/blb in r47110)
385
386    - MacPorts base now tries to avoid using commands that come from ports, so
387      that a broken port can't break the base code. (#18149)
388
389    - Deleting all the contents of a portfile option no longer unsets the
390      option entirely. (#17865, toby in r44901)
391
392    - Removed the code that upgrades from the old DarwinPorts filesystem
393      layout. Trying to upgrade to 1.8.0+ from a version older than 1.5.0 will
394      produce an error message saying you need to install 1.7.1 first.
395      (#17619, jmr in r53260)
396
397    - port(1) now reports its version as dotted-decimal rather than floating
398      point. (#17420)
399
400    - Dependencies are now always obtained by parsing the Portfile and not
401      from the PortIndex, since the latter can't provide expanded variables
402      like $prefix which may be used in path: depspecs. (#17182)
403
404    - Newline characters in long_description can no longer cause receipt
405      corruption. (#16619, blb in r50663)
406
407    - Now unlocking the filemap when it is not in use. This allows e.g.
408      'port contents' to be run while another port instance is performing
409      installs. Note that running more than one simultaneous port instance
410      that will modify the registry can easily fail, though hopefully
411      without corrupting anything. (#16246, jmr in r51133)
412
413    - Removed some irrelevant debug output that was being printed when a port
414      failed. (#16203, jmr in r53706)
415
416    - Added new depends_fetch and depends_extract options, for dependencies
417      that are needed to fetch or extract the port, respectively.
418      (#15161, jmr in r51780)
419
420    - Packages (including the one for MacPorts base) now correctly indicate
421      that they can only be installed on the root volume.
422      (#14809, jmr in r53250)
423
424    - Using an alternative fetch or extract type now adds appropriate
425      dependencies automatically, e.g. 'use_zip yes' adds a dep on unzip, and
426      'fetch.type svn' adds a dep on subversion. (#13981, jmr in r43782)
427
428    - port(1) should now exit with an appropriate status code when an error is
429      encountered. Use the -p option to continue despite errors.
430      (#13918, jmr in r53704)
431
432    - Proxy information can now be obtained from System Preferences and from
433      macports.conf. The older method using environment variables no longer
434      works out of the box on Leopard due to changes that Apple made to the
435      default /etc/sudoers. (#13158, blb in r47194)
436
437    - Improved handling of malformed variant definitions.
438      (#12596, jmr in r50719, r50721)
439
440    - Cope a little better with missing receipt files. (#19540, jmr in r51138)
441
442    - Fixed a major memory leak in the filemap code.
443      (#12022, pguyot in r51419)
444
445    - Improved the logic for determining whether phases can be skipped. This
446      fixes the specific problems of being unable to build packages of ports
447      that are installed, port not running specific phases (e.g. build)
448      when told to if the port is installed, and inactive dependencies being
449      rebuilt instead of simply activated. (#10881, #16260, jmr in r50490)
450
451    - When archive mode is enabled, ports will no longer be rebuilt if an
452      archive is available. (#10785, jmr in r50416)
453
454    - Activating a port will now first deactivate any other version of the
455      same port that is already active. (#10571, jmr in r53711)
456
457    - Added a 'license' portfile option, which is displayed in 'port info'
458      output. (#7493, jmr in r50801)
459
460    - port lint recognizes new top-level category php (#19329, ryandesign)
461
462    - Do not print header lines when the quiet option -q is set
463      (raimue in r48558)
464
465    - svn.tag is deprecated, use svn.revision instead (raimue in r48222-48223)
466
467    - port -i option has been removed (blb in r48218)
468
469    - ui_warn logs to stderr instead of stdout (raimue in r48217)
470
471    - Remove --pretend option for port selfupdate, use global dry-run option
472      instead (raimue in r48125)
473
474    - port(1) option -y for dry-run (#11892, gwhitney/jmr in r43726)
475
476    - New pseudo-port 'obsolete' to identify ports which are installed but no
477      longer in the PortIndex (raimue in r47253)
478
479    - MacPorts can now perform fetch, extract, patch, configure and build in a
480      user rather than system owned location. By default, this is
481      ~/.macports/opt. This allows MacPorts to do all but the install of the
482      port without root privileges. (gsoc08-privileges)
483
484    - MacPorts can now automatically drop privileges so as to avoid running as
485      root whenever possible. To enable this, pass the desired user to run as
486      to configure with the --with-macports-user option. (gsoc08-privileges)
487
488    - The Portfile format has a number of new boolean attributes to indicate
489      when an action should or should not be run with root privileges:
490      'patch.asroot', 'build.asroot', 'configure.asroot', 'destroot.asroot',
491      and 'install.asroot'. The default for all is "no". If the prefix folder
492      (by default /opt/local) is not writable, MacPorts will attempt to
493      elevate privileges to root for the install phase. (gsoc08-privileges)
494
495    - A "make group" command has been added to the Makefile and a
496      "--with-shared-directory" switch to the configure script. Running "make
497      group" will create a macports group. "--with-shared-directory" will let
498      let the group specified by "--with-install-group" have full read write
499      access to the /opt/local hierarchy. This will allow users who are
500      members of the new macports group to have full write permissions to
501      /opt/local and its subfolders, and hence to install ports which only
502      affect that hierarchy without requiring root privileges.
503      (gsoc08-privileges)
504
505    - A switch called "--with-no-root-privileges" has been added for use by
506      user installing MacPorts for their own use only. An example configure
507      command would be "./configure
508      --prefix=/Users/{your-user-name-here}/.macports/opt
509      --with-no-root-privileges" (gsoc08-privileges)
510
511    - Add several new options to port search, looks in name and description by
512      default (#15434, raimue)
513
514    - Add xpkg package type, xar-based format with XML. (afb)
515
516    - Split portpkg creation out from portsubmit phase. (afb)
517
518    - Make dependencies displayed in port info respect variants
519      specified in variants.conf; collapse port deps to be an alias
520      for port info with appropriate flags. Note this changes output
521      format of port deps somewhat.  (#11891, gwhitney in r44340)
522
523    - Make dependencies in port upgrade respect variants as specified
524      (in order of precedence) on command line, latest installed
525      version, or variants.conf .  (#8221, gwhitney in r44362)
526
527    - Add select action, which integrates *_select tools into port.
528      (#17477, perry)
529
530    - The variants action additionally shows default variants, conflicting
531      variants and variants' dependencies. (#14178, #15628, perry)
532
533    - Implicit variants (e.g., darwin) can no longer be explicitly
534      set/unset. (#12563, perry in r46938, jmr in r53371)
535
536Release 1.7.1 (2009-03-28 by raimue):
537    - Trailing slashes are stripped from the prefix passed to configure, which
538      prevents incorrect mtree violation warnings. (#13789)
539
540    - Fix freshmeat-based livecheck (#18887)
541
542    - Fix issue on direct-mode installs where checking for installed ports
543      wasn't properly looking (it only matched for revision 0 and no
544      variants) (#17762)
545
546    - Add new "use_7z yes" port option to allow distfiles in 7z format
547      (#18521, ryandesign)
548
549    - port lint no longer requires variable master_sites if the port has no
550      distfiles (#18479, ryandesign)
551
552    - Upgrade will no longer accept ports that are not installed (but it still
553      installs new ports as dependencies if needed). In particular, this means
554      that "port upgrade all" will no longer proceed to install every
555      available port. (jmr in r46052)
556
557    - Add mkdtemp Tcl command to create temporary directories. (#17181, perry)
558
559    - Add 'apple-gcc-4.2' option to configure.compiler (#18426, ryandesign)
560
561    - Create ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} in destroot
562      automatically (r45614, raimue)
563
564    - Make the postflight procedure a bit smarter about which login files
565      to update for bash and tcsh (#17588)
566
567    - Add error messages to package installers when the wrong OS package
568      is being installed (#13141)
569
570Release 1.7.0 (2008-12-13 by blb):
571    - Global variant descriptions using variant_descriptions.conf in the new
572      resources directory in the ports tree (#14482, raimue)
573
574    - Move port resources into the ports tree (#14553, raimue and blb)
575
576    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
577
578    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
579
580    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
581
582    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
583      --nitpick is used (#14799)
584
585    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
586
587    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
588
589    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
590      phases (#11897)
591
592    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
593      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
594
595    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
596      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
597      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
598      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
599
600    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
601      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
602      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
603      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
604      in r38683)
605
606    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
607
608    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
609      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
610      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
611
612    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
613      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
614      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
615      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, r37621)
616
617    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
618      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
619      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
620      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
621
622    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
623      (#15577, afb in r37501)
624
625    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
626
627    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
628      running (raimue)
629
630    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
631      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
632      jmr in r37217, r37255)
633
634    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
635      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
636      r37121)
637
638    - Stopped 'port -R upgrade' from processing more ports than it should, and
639      from processing ports multiple times. (#10827, jmr in r37046)
640
641    - Don't include build.nice and build.jobs in destroot.cmd (#15295)
642
643    - The default universal variant is no longer added when we know it won't
644      work. (#12170, jmr in r36764)
645
646    - During upgrade, if the latest installed version of a port is not active,
647      the currently active version (if any) is now deactivated before trying
648      to activate the latest version. (#12013, jmr in r36762)
649
650    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is
651      inactive and there is at least one other version of the same port
652      installed (#11501, jmr in r36747)
653
654    - Duplicate entries can no longer build up in the dependency map (#8763,
655      jmr in r36745)
656
657    - In image mode, dependencies are no longer treated as being satisfied
658      when the satisfying port is not active (#7361, jmr in r36735)
659
660    - Fixed a bug where upgrade could create too many nested subdirectories
661      in distpath, archive.destpath and unarchive.srcpath (#11971, jmr in
662      r36679, r36687, r36688)
663
664    - Declaring a dependency on a nonexistent port now always causes an error
665      (#10768, jmr in r36648)
666
667    - Explicitly use unsetenv(3) on all environment variables (#13930, #16010,
668      #16233)
669
670    - Make the included tclthread compile on Leopard if configured (#13495)
671
672    - Allow distfiles to be disk images with "use_dmg yes" port option (#13509,
673      ryandesign in r36708)
674
675    - ruby.setup now takes a type 'fetch' to just fetch/extract (eridius in r35773)
676
677    - Fetch now prefers mirrors with lower ping times (#14891, jmr in r35748,
678      r35806, r35808)
679
680    - Fetching of daily snapshot tarballs of the ports tree as an alternative to rsync
681      (raimue in r35647, r35648)
682
683    - port uninstall now takes --follow-dependents to uninstall all dependents
684      (#14637, eridius/raimue in r34977, r35042, r36160)
685
686    - New fetch.type git (#14232, eridius in r34875)
687
688    - fixed "port mdmg" getting block size wrong for the disk image (#13968, afb in r34844)
689
690    - always set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, to avoid bugs with older glibtool (afb in r34541)
691
692    - port lint now checks all dependencies so that the ports actually exist (#14380)
693
694    - added target_state to avoid the need for privileges for lint/livecheck (#13458)
695
696    - Overhauled output for port info/deps/dependents/search (raimue in
697      r34354, r34371, r34391, r34395, r34402, r34420)
698
699    - Revert the default +universal MDT/SDK to 10.4/10.4u on Tiger and 10.5/10.5 on Leopard
700
701    - port lint shouldn't require variable master_sites for fetch.type != standard (#14377)
702
703    - Add "tcldoc" documentation comments and "tcldox" Doxyfile for doxygen (#12048)
704
705    - Add --pretend and --nosync flags to selfupdate (raimue in r33938, r33939,
706      r33940, r33941)
707
708    - Work around autoconf X11 detection bugs on darwin (afb in r33717)
709
710    - Fix bugs with X11 lib detection on Leopard (#14089, afb in r33716)
711
712    - Add configure.{optflags,m32,m64,march,mtune} (afb in r33503, r33599)
713
714    - Add applications_dir and frameworks_dir configuration (r33499, r33722)
715
716    - Remove some hardcoded paths (such as /usr/X11R6, /usr/bin/install) (afb in r33501, r33619, r33620)
717
718    - Add configure.{universal_target,universal_sysroot,universal_archs} (afb in r33478).
719
720    - Change default +universal platform back to: 10.4/10.4u.sdk/i386 ppc (r33087, r33107).
721
722    - Add `port platform` info action that outputs current platform (#12302, afb in r32724).
723
724    - Enable 64 bit environment, ppc64 x86_64, for all +universal builds (mww in r32194).
725
726    - Add 'merge' function for merging multiple (single arch) destroots into one (universal)
727      destroot (mww in r31954).
728
729    - If checksum is mismatched, and in verbose mode, present a corrected pre-fabricated checksum statement
730      to make it easy to update a port (jberry in r32441).
731
732    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_prefix"" runtime error on Panther
733      (eridius in r32525).
734
735    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_channels"" runtime error on Panther
736      (eridius in r32514).
737
738    - "port lint" now recognizes non-canonical modelines (afb in r32480).
739
740    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
741
742    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
743      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_version (jmpp in r32353).
744
745    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents
746      (jmpp in r32336).
747
748    - Fixed a Panther build failure due to missing sqlite headers (jmpp in r32212).
749
750    - Fixed a build failure by passing the base/src/cregistry/cregistry.a archive through ranlib (jmpp in r32105).
751
752
753Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
754
755    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
756      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
757      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
758      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
759
760    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
761      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
762
763    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
764
765    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
766      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
767
768    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
769      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
770      (#10651, jberry in r31139, r31140).
771
772    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
773      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
774      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
775      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).
776
777    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
778
779    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
780      multiple files (mww in r31028)
781
782    - add optional configure.pipe output (afb in r29604 & r30824)
783
784    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)
785
786    - add configure.[awk|bison|pkg_config|pkg_config_path] (r30761)
787
788    - Auto-mode for number of parallel build threads (if number of jobs is set to "0") (r30739)
789
790    - Add option use_parallel_build [yes|no] to declare if a port can be built in parallel (r30714).
791
792    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).
793
794    - Display warnings when using old versions of Mac OS X and Xcode Tools
795      (#12794, afb in r30338 & r30477)
796
797    - Remove configure.macosx_deployment_target, add global macosx_deployment_target
798      (eridius in r30396).
799
800    - add support for LZMA compression, for making .tlz archives (afb in r30307)
801
802    - add configure.[perl|python|ruby] for interpreters, .install for avoiding breakage
803      due to coreutils, .libs
804
805    - added startupitem.netchange boolean flag (#12931, N_Ox in r30086).
806
807    - added generic GNU livecheck (N_Ox in r29812).
808
809    - fixed bug where all .mpkg packages were missing their welcome page (afb in r29517)
810
811    - better defaults for implicit ui_channels behaviour (eridius in r29498).
812
813    - prevent creating PKG packages with /etc or /var or /tmp (#2102, afb in r29445)
814
815    - add optional configure.ccache and configure.distcc filters (#5390, afb in r29438)
816
817    - Explicitly sort fs-traverse so it behaves predictably on Linux systems
818      (#12622, eridius in r29412).
819
820    - add configure.objc/objcflags for Objective-C
821
822    - add optional build.nice (0) and build.jobs (1) modifiers (afb in r28634 & r28673)
823
824    - make tclobjc1.0 compile with GNUstep and NXConstantString class (afb in r28668)
825
826    - fix bsdmake/gnumake defaults for FreeBSD and Linux platforms (afb in r28660)
827
828    - port lint command, for Portfile verification (#463, afb in r28170)
829
830    - add configure.macosx_deployment_target for configure flags
831
832    - add configure.javac/classpath for Java
833
834    - add configure.fflags/fcflags/f90flags for Fortran flags
835
836    - Mark "python" group code as deprecated
837
838    - Add group code for Python 3.0
839
840    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
841
842    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
843      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
844
845    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
846
847    - Chris Pickel's GSoC2007 work: registry2.0 & cregistry (mainly r27518 & r27520)
848
849    - Eugene Pimenov's GSoC2007 work: Trace lib on unix sockets (r26682).
850
851    - Elias Pipping's GSoC2007 work: merge.rb on his personal /users/pipping svn dir.
852
853
854Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
855
856    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
857      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
858      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
859
860
861Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
862
863    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
864      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
865
866    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
867      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
868
869    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
870
871    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
872      (mww in r27199).
873
874    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
875
876    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
877
878    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
879
880    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
881      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
882
883    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
884
885    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
886
887    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
888
889
890Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
891
892    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
893      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
894      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
895      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
896      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
897
898    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
899
900    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
901
902    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
903      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
904      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
905      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
906      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
907
908    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
909
910    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
911      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
912
913    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
914
915    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
916      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
917
918    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
919      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
920      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
921      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
922      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
923      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
924
925    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
926
927    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
928
929    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
930
931    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
932      to detect problems between required and negated variants
933      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
934
935    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
936      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
937      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
938      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
939
940    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
941      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
942
943    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
944      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
945      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
946
947    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
948      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
949         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
950         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
951      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
952      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
953      (jberry r25795).
954
955    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
956
957    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
958      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
959      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
960
961    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
962      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
963
964    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
965      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
966
967    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
968      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
969      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
970      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
971      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
972      (boeyms in r25310)
973
974Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
975
976    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
977
978Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
979
980    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
981
982    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
983      This allows information about variants to be displayed (e.g. dependencies).
984      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
985      (eridius r25255).
986
987    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
988
989    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
990      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
991      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
992
993    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
994      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
995
996    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
997      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
998      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
999      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
1000      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
1001      (boeyms r25110)
1002
1003    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
1004      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
1005      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
1006      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
1007
1008    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
1009
1010    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
1011      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
1012
1013    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
1014      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
1015
1016    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
1017
1018    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
1019      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
1020
1021    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
1022      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
1023      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
1024      (jberry r25146)
1025
1026    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
1027         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
1028         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
1029         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
1030           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
1031           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
1032
1033        Example:
1034
1035            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
1036                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
1037            }
1038
1039        (jberry r25147)
1040
1041    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
1042      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
1043
1044
1045Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
1046
1047    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
1048      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
1049      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
1050      it differently.
1051
1052    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
1053      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
1054      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
1055      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
1056      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
1057
1058    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
1059      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
1060      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
1061
1062    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
1063
1064    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
1065
1066    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
1067      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
1068
1069    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
1070
1071    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
1072
1073    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
1074      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
1075      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
1076
1077    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
1078      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
1079
1080    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
1081      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
1082
1083    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
1084      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
1085
1086    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
1087
1088    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
1089      (pguyot r24273).
1090
1091    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
1092      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
1093      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
1094
1095    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
1096      This work is in progress. (jberry)
1097       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
1098       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
1099         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
1100
1101    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
1102      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
1103
1104    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
1105      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
1106
1107    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
1108      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
1109
1110    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
1111
1112    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
1113
1114Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
1115
1116    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
1117      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
1118      (jberry r24151).
1119
1120    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
1121      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
1122      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
1123      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
1124      (pipping r24148).
1125
1126Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
1127
1128    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
1129      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
1130
1131    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
1132      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
1133
1134    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
1135      for submitter information.
1136      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
1137        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
1138        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
1139            - PORTSRC
1140            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
1141            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
1142          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
1143       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
1144
1145    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
1146      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
1147
1148    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
1149      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
1150      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
1151      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1152
1153    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1154
1155    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
1156      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
1157
1158Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
1159
1160    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
1161      (pipping in r23343).
1162
1163    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
1164      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
1165
1166    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
1167      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
1168      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
1169
1170    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
1171      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
1172
1173    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
1174      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
1175      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
1176
1177    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
1178
1179    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
1180      r22313).
1181
1182    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
1183      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
1184      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
1185      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
1186
1187    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
1188      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
1189
1190    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
1191      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
1192
1193    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
1194      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
1195
1196    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
1197      r23967)
1198
1199
1200Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
1201
1202    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
1203      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
1204
1205    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
1206
1207    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
1208      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
1209
1210    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
1211
1212    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
1213
1214    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
1215      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
1216
1217    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
1218
1219    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
1220
1221    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
1222      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
1223
1224    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
1225      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
1226
1227    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
1228      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
1229      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
1230
1231    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
1232
1233    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
1234      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
1235
1236    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
1237      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
1238
1239    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
1240      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
1241
1242    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
1243
1244    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
1245
1246    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
1247      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
1248
1249    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
1250
1251    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
1252
1253    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
1254
1255    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
1256      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
1257
1258    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
1259      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
1260
1261    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
1262
1263    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
1264
1265
1266Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
1267
1268    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
1269      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
1270
1271    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
1272
1273    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
1274      code. (pguyot)
1275
1276    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
1277      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
1278
1279    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
1280      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
1281
1282    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
1283      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
1284      /usr/local. (pguyot)
1285
1286    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
1287
1288    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
1289      (josh_root, blb)
1290
1291    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
1292      are modified. (pguyot)
1293
1294    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
1295      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1296
1297    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
1298      variable. (pguyot)
1299
1300    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
1301      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
1302      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
1303
1304Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
1305
1306    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
1307
1308    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
1309      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
1310
1311    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
1312      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
1313      SVN. (pguyot)
1314
1315    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
1316      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
1317
1318    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
1319      (jberry)
1320
1321    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
1322      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
1323
1324    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
1325
1326    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
1327
1328    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1329
1330    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
1331       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
1332       * mention interactive and batch modes
1333       * document extensions to info command.
1334
1335    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
1336
1337    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
1338      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
1339      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
1340
1341Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
1342
1343    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
1344      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
1345      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
1346
1347    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
1348      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
1349
1350    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
1351      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
1352
1353    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
1354
1355    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
1356
1357    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
1358      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
1359
1360    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
1361      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
1362
1363    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
1364
1365    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
1366      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
1367
1368    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
1369
1370    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
1371      (jberry)
1372
1373    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
1374      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
1375      (landonf)
1376
1377    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
1378      installed. (jmpp)
1379
1380    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
1381      project path. (pguyot)
1382
1383    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
1384      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
1385
1386    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
1387      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
1388
1389    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
1390      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
1391
1392    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
1393      (olegb)
1394
1395    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
1396      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
1397
1398    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
1399      iterating). (jberry)
1400
1401    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
1402      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
1403      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
1404
1405    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
1406
1407    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
1408      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
1409      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
1410      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
1411      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
1412      shoot yourself. (jberry)
1413
1414    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
1415      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
1416
1417    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
1418      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
1419
1420    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
1421
1422    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
1423      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
1424        several bug fixes.
1425      * cleaned up the code.
1426      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
1427        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
1428        reported creations).
1429      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
1430        overwritten.
1431
1432    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
1433
1434    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
1435      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
1436      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
1437
1438        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
1439          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
1440          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
1441
1442        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
1443          input following any commands given as arguments.
1444
1445        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
1446          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
1447          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
1448            #!/usr/bin/env portf
1449
1450        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
1451
1452        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
1453
1454        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
1455          interactive/batch mode.
1456
1457        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
1458
1459        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
1460          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
1461          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
1462
1463    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
1464      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
1465      (jberry).
1466
1467    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
1468      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
1469
1470    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
1471      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
1472      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
1473
1474    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
1475      (pguyot)
1476
1477    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
1478
1479    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
1480      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
1481      (jberry)
1482
1483    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
1484      MacOS X. (mww)
1485
1486    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
1487      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
1488      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
1489      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
1490      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
1491      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
1492      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
1493      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
1494      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
1495      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
1496      (jberry) 2006-02-16
1497
1498Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
1499
1500    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
1501      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
1502      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
1503      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
1504      fat, configure as follows:
1505        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
1506                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
1507
1508    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
1509      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
1510      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
1511
1512Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
1513
1514    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
1515      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
1516      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
1517        port uninstall vim @1.0
1518      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
1519      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
1520
1521    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
1522      destroot, too. (mww)
1523
1524    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
1525      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
1526
1527    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
1528      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
1529      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
1530
1531    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
1532      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
1533      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
1534
1535    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
1536      groups of ports.
1537      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
1538      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
1539
1540      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
1541        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
1542
1543      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
1544      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
1545      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
1546      The selectors are:
1547      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
1548      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
1549      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
1550
1551    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
1552      ports or groups of ports.
1553      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
1554
1555    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
1556      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
1557      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
1558      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
1559
1560    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
1561      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
1562
1563    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
1564      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
1565      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
1566
1567    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
1568      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
1569      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
1570      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
1571      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
1572      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
1573
1574    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
1575      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
1576      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
1577
1578    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
1579      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
1580
1581    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
1582      ones considered harmful (blb)
1583
1584    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
1585      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
1586
1587    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
1588      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
1589
1590    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
1591        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
1592          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
1593        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
1594          reports (pguyot)
1595        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
1596
1597    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
1598      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
1599
1600    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
1601
1602    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
1603      echo (the expanded arguments),
1604      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
1605      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
1606      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
1607      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
1608      (jberry)
1609
1610    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
1611      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
1612      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
1613      in a similar fashion (jberry)
1614
1615
1616Release 1.1:
