6Unreleased changes:
7
8    - Add '-n' option to reinplace (#26406, ryandesign in r73227)
9
10    - Add new ccache_dir and ccache_size options, default path is
11      ${portdbpath}/build/.ccache and a size of 2 GB.
12      (raimue in r71604, r71606)
13
14    - Add 'system -W path' which changes to the given directory before
15      executing the command.
16      (raimue in r71380, r71389)
17
18    - Add -w to build.cmd and destroot.cmd if using gnumake
19      (raimue in r71370)
20
21    - Add livecheck.ignore_sslcert; setting fetch.ignore_sslcert does no
22      longer apply to livecheck. distcheck now respects fetch.ignore_sslcert.
23      (#17063, raimue in r70975, r70979, r70982)
24
25    - Add SHA256 checksums in addition to MD5, SHA1 and RIPEMD160.
26      (afb in r57888, r57913; snc in r68955)
27
28Release 1.9.2 (2010-11-07 by jmr):
29
30    - Added more locking to avoid TOCTOU errors when running multiple port(1)
31      instances (#19935, jmr in r70174)
32
33    - Fixed -q not suppressing output from 'port lint' (#25880, jmr in r70163)
34
35    - Added a helpful message when there is a checksum mismatch and the
36      distfile appears to incorrectly be a HTML document (#25128,
37      ryandesign/jmr in r70143)
38
39    - Now checking early on if there are sufficient privileges to install,
40      and failing before building anything if not (#25671, jmr in r70135)
41
42    - Avoided possible failure when the -u option is used when upgrading a
43      port that is marked as being replaced by another (jmr in r69022)
44
45    - Using the platform-specific PortIndex when syncing using a daily tarball
46      (jmr in r68786)
47
48    - Fixed failures when fetch target is run without root privileges and the
49      port is then installed with them (#25418, #25937; jmr in r69334, r70271)
50
51    - Fixed upgrading ports where the new version differs from the old version
52      only in epoch (jmr in r69436)
53
54    - Fixed [un]setrequested when using the flat registry format
55      (#26352, jmr in r69387)
56
57    - Fixed checking for conflicting ports before installation
58      (#25386, jmr in r69105)
59
60    - Now gracefully handling distfiles that use a tag that is not
61      associated with any sites (#25332, jmr in r68965)
62
63    - Fixed running 'port deps' on multiple ports, and changed its output
64      format back to how it was in 1.8 (#25324, jmr in r68950)
65
66    - Fixed premature privilege dropping (#25331, jmr in r68952)
67
68Release 1.9.1 (2010-06-18 by jmr):
69    - Fixed a couple of problems with new 1.9 features when using the flat
70      registry format (jmr in r68910, r68913)
71
72    - Ports using the replaced_by option will once again be deactivated when
73      an upgrade is performed on them (#25270, jmr in r68872)
74
75    - Fixed the possibility of some empty directories being left behind when
76      a port is deactivated (#25268, jmr in r68864)
77
78    - Fixed failure to detect conflicts with files that are not provided by
79      a port before activation starts (#25255, jmr in r68849)
80
81    - Fixed problems with distfile names containing spaces (#25245, #25246;
82      jmr in r68816, r68817)
83
84    - Fixed a problem with uninstall when using direct mode, and started
85      running pre/post activate and deactivate procedures when installing and
86      uninstalling in direct mode, respectively (#11562, jmr in r68697)
87
88    - fixed a crasher that affected Tiger (#25194, jmr in r68675, r68680,
89      r68691)
90
91Release 1.9.0 (2010-06-08 by jmr):
92
93    - It is no longer possible to use include statements in Portfiles
94      (raimue in r68206)
95
96    - Command line options can be abbreviated if unambiguous
97      (raimue in r66837)
98
99    - Added a new variable 'os.subplatform'. When os.platform is darwin, the
100      subplatform is either 'macosx' or 'puredarwin'.
101
102    - 'platform' no longer creates a variant, instead it executes the code in
103      the body immediately if the current platform matches the one specified.
104
105    - Using a Portfile with a modification date in the future now causes an
106      informative error early on, instead of just discarding the workdir at
107      the start of every phase. (#24717, raimue in r65246)
108
109    - Fetching from servers that require a cookie to be set now works.
110      (#24584, raimue in r66785)
111
112    - Fixed an error when everything is deleted from the patchfiles list.
113      (#24178, raimue in r65243)
114
115    - Added 'license:' pseudo-port selector. (#24123, perry in r65033)
116
117    - Added new fetch.type 'bzr'. (#23436, perry in r65096)
118
119    - Added 'rdeps' and 'rdependents' actions, recursive versions of 'deps'
120      and 'dependents' respectively. Also added 'depof:', 'rdepof:',
121      'dependentof:' and 'rdependentof:' pseudo-port selectors, for specifying
122      the ports that are dependencies or dependents of the given port.
123      (#22346, jmr in r65858/r66198)
124
125    - Updated the description of the search action in the port(1) man page.
126      (#23749, jmr in r66670)
127
128    - Dry-run now uses /dev/null as the statefile, which prevents a couple of
129      problems involving locking and variant checks.
130      (#21794, #21962; jmr in r66921)
131
132    - The list of dependencies to be installed is now displayed immediately
133      after computing them. (#21540, jmr in r66321)
134
135    - The quick index is now reloaded after syncing in interactive mode, which
136      prevents errors due to it not matching the updated PortIndex.
137      (#20874, jmr in r66319, refinement of patch from carrel.org:edward)
138
139    - The architectures of dependencies are checked when installing a port. If
140      a dependency does not provide the required arch(s), it is rebuilt with
141      +universal if that is possible and will help, otherwise the install fails
142      and an error message explains why. (#20728, jmr in r65087)
143
144    - New supported_archs option allows ports to indicate which architectures
145      they can be built for. The default values of configure.build_arch and
146      configure.universal_archs change based on this list. Set this to
147      'noarch' if a port installs only architecture-independent files.
148      (#20739, jmr in r64372/r64945)
149
150    - Declaring a variant that requires one or more other variants will now
151      correctly set the required variants, so they can be checked with
152      variant_isset. (#19224, jmr in r66642)
153
154    - 'port outdated' now indicates the reason why a port that appears to have
155      the same version as that in the tree is considered outdated. Possible
156      reasons are that the epoch is higher, or the installed version was built
157      on a different OS version. (#19138, jmr in r64960)
158
159    - Distfile names are now percent-escaped in the download URLs when needed.
160      (#18736, jmr in r66794)
161
162    - buildnicevalue is now applied to configure and destroot commands, and to
163      build commands with unusual names. (#18304, raimue in r65076/r65808)
164
165    - Removed hardcoded /opt/local prefix from the base dmg resources.
166      (#17633, jmr in r66776)
167
168    - Fixed an error that occurred when archive mode was enabled but
169      ${prefix}/var/macports/packages did not exist. (#17579, jmr in r66775)
170
171    - Syncing rsync sources now tries to get a platform-specific version of
172      the PortIndex from the server, and skips this if the local copy is less
173      than a day old. All sync methods now update the PortIndex at the end.
174      (#17157, jmr in r66846/r67207)
175
176    - portindex(1) now skips parsing Portfiles whose modification time is
177      older than the current PortIndex, instead reusing the existing entry.
178      (#16235, jmr in r66845)
179
180    - Added a 'requested' flag to the registry that indicates which ports were
181      installed explicitly (as opposed to as a dependency of something else).
182      This enables the new 'requested', 'unrequested' and 'leaves' pseudo-
183      ports, as well as the --follow-dependencies option for uninstall.
184      The setrequested and unsetrequested actions will set and clear the flag,
185      respectively.
186      (#15260, jmr in r64517, r64663, r65546, r66037, r66200, r66215)
187
188    - The macports1.0 directory is now installed to
189      ${prefix}/share/macports/Tcl rather than /Library/Tcl. A symlink will be
190      installed in the old location if there is nothing there already, so
191      'package require macports' will still work in tclsh.
192      (#12943, jmr in r65055)
193
194    - Added warning and error messags when Xcode is old enough to cause
195      problems or too old to use at all, respectively. (#12794, jmr in r66771)
196
197    - Removed the rather outdated copy of sqlite3 from the source tree, made
198      the sqlite3 directory configurable, and added defaults for non-darwin
199      platforms. (#12231, jmr in r64358/r64363)
200
201    - There is a new 'archivefetch' target which is run before unarchive when
202      archive mode is enabled, and attempts to download the archive from a
203      server. There are currently no sites configured to download from (these
204      are stored in the ports tree like the mirror sites used for fetch), but
205      you can set ARCHIVE_SITE_LOCAL in the environment. Note that there is no
206      integrity checking for archives yet. (#8571, jmr in r64816)
207
208    - Now recording negative variants in the registry, which stops deselected
209      variants from being reactivated on upgrade due to default_variants or
210      variants.conf settings. (#2377, jmr in r64533)
211
212    - Added support for pre- and post- procedures for the activate, deactivate
213      and uninstall targets. This feature requires portdbformat sqlite. There
214      was limited support for pre- and post-activate previously, but the
215      procedures were only run when installing the port, not when activating
216      an inactive version. (#1068, #4228, #18273; jmr in r64638/r64639)
217
218    - Integrated the sqlite-based registry2.0 code. The portdbformat variable
219      in macports.conf can be set to 'sqlite' to enable it. Existing flat
220      receipts will be converted the first time port(1) is run with sufficient
221      privileges. Original code by sfiera, fixed and integrated by jmr in
222      r63398 and following. The new format lacks a number of problems that the
223      old one suffers from, including #13054 (dependencies from old port
224      versions stick around across upgrades) and #14123 (files whose paths
225      differ only in case are left behind when uninstalling).
226
227    - Fixed file list in +CONTENTS file in archives. (#21864, jmr in r59882)
228
229    - Fixed a few issues reported with building MacPorts on Linux. (#22716)
230
231    - Upgrade will now always choose the port that is active when following
232      dependencies that could be satisfied by more than one port and more than
233      one of these is installed, instead of choosing the one actually named in
234      the depspec. (#23921, jmr in r60883)
235
236    - Extracting from a disk image ("use_dmg yes") no longer fails when there
237      is a space in $worksrcdir. (#23456, raimue in r67089)
238
239    - Added a configure.sdkroot option which can be used to build against a
240      Mac OS X SDK. It is empty by default unless the value of
241      macosx_deployment_target is not the current OS version, or the universal
242      variant is set and the current platform is PowerPC Tiger. It is also
243      possible to set macosx_deployment_target globally in macports.conf now,
244      but this is unsupported. (#19875, jmr in r66924)
245
246    - Add "fs-traverse -tails" which only returns the part following the
247      specified directory (#21873, raimue in r65785)
248
249    - Allow gcc45 port to be used in configure.compiler (ryandesign in r62223)
250
251    - svn checkouts now use peg revisions instead of operative revisions,
252      so they'll continue to work if a repository gets reorganized
253      (#20777, ryandesign in r60573)
254
255    - Print the location of the log file when a target fails (jmr in r60769)
256
257    - Use CommonCrypto/CommonDigest instead of OpenSSL libcrypto.
258      (toby in r58131, jberry in r59715)
259
260    - New "patch.type gnu" for GNU patch, similar to "build.type gnu"
261      for GNU make. Only makes a difference for BSD patch and BSD make.
262      (afb in r58020)
263
264    - Updated the FreeBSD package (ObjC/Foundation is now optional).
265      (afb in r57889)
266
267    - Don't use "make -j1" for build.jobs=1, but prefer "make" instead.
268      (afb in r57998)
269
270    - Add new "use_xz yes" port option to allow distfiles in xz format.
271      (afb in r57827)
272
273    - Archive mode now uses build_arch in archive names rather than os.arch.
274      (snc in r58977)
275
276    - Add new log command and keeping of debug output for easy access
277      after port has run (GSoC 2009 logging project by enl, merged in r60372)
278
279    - Some of the build_arch flags now appear in LDFLAGS as well, fixing
280      several ports when building for a different architecture (jeremyhu in
281      r60662, jmr in r60680)
282
283    - Fixed 'merge' proc for paths with spaces, and for symlinks on Snow
284      Leopard, and added an error message for when 'merge' is not called
285      correctly (#21852, ryandesign in r58776, r58777, r58778)
286
287Release 1.8.2 (2010-01-01 by jmr):
288
289    - Fixed 'port load' for non-root installations (#21713, jmr in r60774)
290
291    - Fixed a bug that could cause port to hit the open file limit
292      (#22959, jmr in r61770)
293
294    - Fixed an error when installing from source or selfupdating on Tiger with
295      an svn-based ports tree (#20760, jmr in r61302)
296
297    - Fixed an error when selfupdating as root with a prefix that is not owned
298      by root (#21010, jmr in r60798)
299
300    - Stopped uninstall from failing when files in the port image have already
301      been deleted (#22001, jmr in r59318, r59654)
302
303    - Stopped printing command output multiple times on failure (#21084,
304      jmr in r60770)
305
306    - Started showing bug reporting instructions on failure (jmr in r60770)
307
308    - Fixed a bug where 'port dmg' could create too small an image and run out
309      of space (#22404, jmr in r60260)
310
311    - Fixed a bug where reinplace could fail when running port without root
312      privileges (#20896, jmr in r59597)
313
314    - Started setting our own umask since Snow Leopard makes us inherit
315      the user's even when using sudo (#21389, jmr in r59585)
316
317Release 1.8.1 (2009-09-28 by jmr):
318
319    - Installer error messages now display properly even from the Snow Leopard
320      MacPorts dmg. (jmr in r56448)
321
322    - 'fetch.type svn' no longer requires the installation of the subversion
323      port as of Snow Leopard. (toby in r56160; raimue in r56162)
324
325    - Updated manpages and 'port help' output (ryandesign in r56472, r56473,
326      r56474; blb in r56666, r57048, r57131)
327
328    - Fixed syncing using the daily tarball. (#21034, toby in r56889)
329
330    - Fixed 'port load' (#21128, raimue in r57055)
331
332    - Improved error message when an expression on the command line does not
333      match any ports (jmr in r57026)
334
335    - Stopped recording the completion of the install phase in the
336      statefile, which led to errors if the port was uninstalled but the work
337      dir was not cleaned, and the port was then installed again.
338      (jmr/raimue in r57801, 57820)
339
340Release 1.8.0 (2009-08-28 by jmr):
341    - There is now a 'build_arch' variable, available in portfiles and
342      configurable in macports.conf, which sets the CPU architecture that
343      ports should be compiled for (when not building universal). Its default
344      is the same as that of the Apple-supplied /usr/bin/gcc.
345      (#19874, jmr in r53217,r53386,r53420,r53494,r53860,r54236)
346
347    - MacPorts base now works on and has appropriate default settings for
348      Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. (#19874, toby/mww/jkh in r38271,r40060,
349      r40836,r43976,r52397)
350     
351    - MacPorts now requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later. (Panther is not
352      just "unsupported", it really won't work.)
353
354    - The universal_sysroot and universal_target keys have been removed from
355      macports.conf. These settings are now handled automatically.
356      (toby in r52324)
357
358    - Added a 'replaced_by' portfile option. This causes upgrade to deactivate
359      the current port and install the port specified by this option. This
360      also allows ports to be renamed. Upgrade accepts a --no-replace option
361      which disables this behaviour. (#20157, jmr in r54378)
362
363    - The upgrade action now accepts --force and --enforce-variants options.
364      The former causes ports to be rebuilt even if they are not outdated, and
365      the global -f option no longer has this effect (it had too many effects
366      already). The latter causes ports to be rebuilt if the requested
367      variants do not match those installed (even if they are not outdated).
368      (#20156, jmr in r54376)
369
370    - Dependencies can be satisfied by ports that are installed but not
371      available in the ports tree (useful for testing uncommitted ports).
372      (jmr in r52075, r52160)
373
374    - Ports that are installed but not available in the ports tree no longer
375      cause an error when running commands like 'port clean installed'. They
376      are skipped and a warning is printed. (#19253, jmr in r50865)
377
378    - Selfupdate no longer disables readline support unless readline is found
379      in /usr/local, which has historically caused failures.
380      (#19035, jmr in r50868)
381
382    - Uninstalling a port that is not installed now produces an informational
383      message rather than an error. (#18984, jmr in r53709)
384
385    - Added a 'conflicts' portfile option. Conflicting ports will be detected
386      during dependency calculation. (#18794, blb/jmr in r51525)
387
388    - 'port selfupdate' now explicitly states precisely what it does. (#18512)
389
390    - Operating system and architecture information is now shown in debug
391      output. (#18435, raimue in r46669)
392
393    - Fixed a bug that could break some symlinks to man pages. (#18302)
394
395    - Switched to a more efficient algorithm for looking up port information
396      in the index, which makes many operations faster.
397      (#18259, jmr/blb in r47110)
398
399    - MacPorts base now tries to avoid using commands that come from ports, so
400      that a broken port can't break the base code. (#18149)
401
402    - Deleting all the contents of a portfile option no longer unsets the
403      option entirely. (#17865, toby in r44901)
404
405    - Removed the code that upgrades from the old DarwinPorts filesystem
406      layout. Trying to upgrade to 1.8.0+ from a version older than 1.5.0 will
407      produce an error message saying you need to install 1.7.1 first.
408      (#17619, jmr in r53260)
409
410    - port(1) now reports its version as dotted-decimal rather than floating
411      point. (#17420)
412
413    - Dependencies are now always obtained by parsing the Portfile and not
414      from the PortIndex, since the latter can't provide expanded variables
415      like $prefix which may be used in path: depspecs. (#17182)
416
417    - Newline characters in long_description can no longer cause receipt
418      corruption. (#16619, blb in r50663)
419
420    - Now unlocking the filemap when it is not in use. This allows e.g.
421      'port contents' to be run while another port instance is performing
422      installs. Note that running more than one simultaneous port instance
423      that will modify the registry can easily fail, though hopefully
424      without corrupting anything. (#16246, jmr in r51133)
425
426    - Removed some irrelevant debug output that was being printed when a port
427      failed. (#16203, jmr in r53706)
428
429    - Added new depends_fetch and depends_extract options, for dependencies
430      that are needed to fetch or extract the port, respectively.
431      (#15161, jmr in r51780)
432
433    - Packages (including the one for MacPorts base) now correctly indicate
434      that they can only be installed on the root volume.
435      (#14809, jmr in r53250)
436
437    - Using an alternative fetch or extract type now adds appropriate
438      dependencies automatically, e.g. 'use_zip yes' adds a dep on unzip, and
439      'fetch.type svn' adds a dep on subversion. (#13981, jmr in r43782)
440
441    - port(1) should now exit with an appropriate status code when an error is
442      encountered. Use the -p option to continue despite errors.
443      (#13918, jmr in r53704)
444
445    - Proxy information can now be obtained from System Preferences and from
446      macports.conf. The older method using environment variables no longer
447      works out of the box on Leopard due to changes that Apple made to the
448      default /etc/sudoers. (#13158, blb in r47194)
449
450    - Improved handling of malformed variant definitions.
451      (#12596, jmr in r50719, r50721)
452
453    - Cope a little better with missing receipt files. (#19540, jmr in r51138)
454
455    - Fixed a major memory leak in the filemap code.
456      (#12022, pguyot in r51419)
457
458    - Improved the logic for determining whether phases can be skipped. This
459      fixes the specific problems of being unable to build packages of ports
460      that are installed, port not running specific phases (e.g. build)
461      when told to if the port is installed, and inactive dependencies being
462      rebuilt instead of simply activated. (#10881, #16260, jmr in r50490)
463
464    - When archive mode is enabled, ports will no longer be rebuilt if an
465      archive is available. (#10785, jmr in r50416)
466
467    - Activating a port will now first deactivate any other version of the
468      same port that is already active. (#10571, jmr in r53711)
469
470    - Added a 'license' portfile option, which is displayed in 'port info'
471      output. (#7493, jmr in r50801)
472
473    - port lint recognizes new top-level category php (#19329, ryandesign)
474
475    - Do not print header lines when the quiet option -q is set
476      (raimue in r48558)
477
478    - svn.tag is deprecated, use svn.revision instead (raimue in r48222-48223)
479
480    - port -i option has been removed (blb in r48218)
481
482    - ui_warn logs to stderr instead of stdout (raimue in r48217)
483
484    - Remove --pretend option for port selfupdate, use global dry-run option
485      instead (raimue in r48125)
486
487    - port(1) option -y for dry-run (#11892, gwhitney/jmr in r43726)
488
489    - New pseudo-port 'obsolete' to identify ports which are installed but no
490      longer in the PortIndex (raimue in r47253)
491
492    - MacPorts can now perform fetch, extract, patch, configure and build in a
493      user rather than system owned location. By default, this is
494      ~/.macports/opt. This allows MacPorts to do all but the install of the
495      port without root privileges. (gsoc08-privileges)
496
497    - MacPorts can now automatically drop privileges so as to avoid running as
498      root whenever possible. To enable this, pass the desired user to run as
499      to configure with the --with-macports-user option. (gsoc08-privileges)
500
501    - The Portfile format has a number of new boolean attributes to indicate
502      when an action should or should not be run with root privileges:
503      'patch.asroot', 'build.asroot', 'configure.asroot', 'destroot.asroot',
504      and 'install.asroot'. The default for all is "no". If the prefix folder
505      (by default /opt/local) is not writable, MacPorts will attempt to
506      elevate privileges to root for the install phase. (gsoc08-privileges)
507
508    - A "make group" command has been added to the Makefile and a
509      "--with-shared-directory" switch to the configure script. Running "make
510      group" will create a macports group. "--with-shared-directory" will let
511      let the group specified by "--with-install-group" have full read write
512      access to the /opt/local hierarchy. This will allow users who are
513      members of the new macports group to have full write permissions to
514      /opt/local and its subfolders, and hence to install ports which only
515      affect that hierarchy without requiring root privileges.
516      (gsoc08-privileges)
517
518    - A switch called "--with-no-root-privileges" has been added for use by
519      user installing MacPorts for their own use only. An example configure
520      command would be "./configure
521      --prefix=/Users/{your-user-name-here}/.macports/opt
522      --with-no-root-privileges" (gsoc08-privileges)
523
524    - Add several new options to port search, looks in name and description by
525      default (#15434, raimue)
526
527    - Add xpkg package type, xar-based format with XML. (afb)
528
529    - Split portpkg creation out from portsubmit phase. (afb)
530
531    - Make dependencies displayed in port info respect variants
532      specified in variants.conf; collapse port deps to be an alias
533      for port info with appropriate flags. Note this changes output
534      format of port deps somewhat.  (#11891, gwhitney in r44340)
535
536    - Make dependencies in port upgrade respect variants as specified
537      (in order of precedence) on command line, latest installed
538      version, or variants.conf .  (#8221, gwhitney in r44362)
539
540    - Add select action, which integrates *_select tools into port.
541      (#17477, perry)
542
543    - The variants action additionally shows default variants, conflicting
544      variants and variants' dependencies. (#14178, #15628, perry)
545
546    - Implicit variants (e.g., darwin) can no longer be explicitly
547      set/unset. (#12563, perry in r46938, jmr in r53371)
548
549Release 1.7.1 (2009-03-28 by raimue):
550    - Trailing slashes are stripped from the prefix passed to configure, which
551      prevents incorrect mtree violation warnings. (#13789)
552
553    - Fix freshmeat-based livecheck (#18887)
554
555    - Fix issue on direct-mode installs where checking for installed ports
556      wasn't properly looking (it only matched for revision 0 and no
557      variants) (#17762)
558
559    - Add new "use_7z yes" port option to allow distfiles in 7z format
560      (#18521, ryandesign)
561
562    - port lint no longer requires variable master_sites if the port has no
563      distfiles (#18479, ryandesign)
564
565    - Upgrade will no longer accept ports that are not installed (but it still
566      installs new ports as dependencies if needed). In particular, this means
567      that "port upgrade all" will no longer proceed to install every
568      available port. (jmr in r46052)
569
570    - Add mkdtemp Tcl command to create temporary directories. (#17181, perry)
571
572    - Add 'apple-gcc-4.2' option to configure.compiler (#18426, ryandesign)
573
574    - Create ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} in destroot
575      automatically (r45614, raimue)
576
577    - Make the postflight procedure a bit smarter about which login files
578      to update for bash and tcsh (#17588)
579
580    - Add error messages to package installers when the wrong OS package
581      is being installed (#13141)
582
583Release 1.7.0 (2008-12-13 by blb):
584    - Global variant descriptions using variant_descriptions.conf in the new
585      resources directory in the ports tree (#14482, raimue)
586
587    - Move port resources into the ports tree (#14553, raimue and blb)
588
589    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
590
591    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
592
593    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
594
595    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
596      --nitpick is used (#14799)
597
598    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
599
600    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
601
602    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
603      phases (#11897)
604
605    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
606      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
607
608    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
609      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
610      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
611      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
612
613    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
614      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
615      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
616      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
617      in r38683)
618
619    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
620
621    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
622      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
623      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
624
625    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
626      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
627      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
628      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, r37621)
629
630    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
631      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
632      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
633      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
634
635    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
636      (#15577, afb in r37501)
637
638    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
639
640    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
641      running (raimue)
642
643    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
644      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
645      jmr in r37217, r37255)
646
647    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
648      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
649      r37121)
650
651    - Stopped 'port -R upgrade' from processing more ports than it should, and
652      from processing ports multiple times. (#10827, jmr in r37046)
653
654    - Don't include build.nice and build.jobs in destroot.cmd (#15295)
655
656    - The default universal variant is no longer added when we know it won't
657      work. (#12170, jmr in r36764)
658
659    - During upgrade, if the latest installed version of a port is not active,
660      the currently active version (if any) is now deactivated before trying
661      to activate the latest version. (#12013, jmr in r36762)
662
663    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is
664      inactive and there is at least one other version of the same port
665      installed (#11501, jmr in r36747)
666
667    - Duplicate entries can no longer build up in the dependency map (#8763,
668      jmr in r36745)
669
670    - In image mode, dependencies are no longer treated as being satisfied
671      when the satisfying port is not active (#7361, jmr in r36735)
672
673    - Fixed a bug where upgrade could create too many nested subdirectories
674      in distpath, archive.destpath and unarchive.srcpath (#11971, jmr in
675      r36679, r36687, r36688)
676
677    - Declaring a dependency on a nonexistent port now always causes an error
678      (#10768, jmr in r36648)
679
680    - Explicitly use unsetenv(3) on all environment variables (#13930, #16010,
681      #16233)
682
683    - Make the included tclthread compile on Leopard if configured (#13495)
684
685    - Allow distfiles to be disk images with "use_dmg yes" port option (#13509,
686      ryandesign in r36708)
687
688    - ruby.setup now takes a type 'fetch' to just fetch/extract (eridius in r35773)
689
690    - Fetch now prefers mirrors with lower ping times (#14891, jmr in r35748,
691      r35806, r35808)
692
693    - Fetching of daily snapshot tarballs of the ports tree as an alternative to rsync
694      (raimue in r35647, r35648)
695
696    - port uninstall now takes --follow-dependents to uninstall all dependents
697      (#14637, eridius/raimue in r34977, r35042, r36160)
698
699    - New fetch.type git (#14232, eridius in r34875)
700
701    - fixed "port mdmg" getting block size wrong for the disk image (#13968, afb in r34844)
702
703    - always set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, to avoid bugs with older glibtool (afb in r34541)
704
705    - port lint now checks all dependencies so that the ports actually exist (#14380)
706
707    - added target_state to avoid the need for privileges for lint/livecheck (#13458)
708
709    - Overhauled output for port info/deps/dependents/search (raimue in
710      r34354, r34371, r34391, r34395, r34402, r34420)
711
712    - Revert the default +universal MDT/SDK to 10.4/10.4u on Tiger and 10.5/10.5 on Leopard
713
714    - port lint shouldn't require variable master_sites for fetch.type != standard (#14377)
715
716    - Add "tcldoc" documentation comments and "tcldox" Doxyfile for doxygen (#12048)
717
718    - Add --pretend and --nosync flags to selfupdate (raimue in r33938, r33939,
719      r33940, r33941)
720
721    - Work around autoconf X11 detection bugs on darwin (afb in r33717)
722
723    - Fix bugs with X11 lib detection on Leopard (#14089, afb in r33716)
724
725    - Add configure.{optflags,m32,m64,march,mtune} (afb in r33503, r33599)
726
727    - Add applications_dir and frameworks_dir configuration (r33499, r33722)
728
729    - Remove some hardcoded paths (such as /usr/X11R6, /usr/bin/install) (afb in r33501, r33619, r33620)
730
731    - Add configure.{universal_target,universal_sysroot,universal_archs} (afb in r33478).
732
733    - Change default +universal platform back to: 10.4/10.4u.sdk/i386 ppc (r33087, r33107).
734
735    - Add `port platform` info action that outputs current platform (#12302, afb in r32724).
736
737    - Enable 64 bit environment, ppc64 x86_64, for all +universal builds (mww in r32194).
738
739    - Add 'merge' function for merging multiple (single arch) destroots into one (universal)
740      destroot (mww in r31954).
741
742    - If checksum is mismatched, and in verbose mode, present a corrected pre-fabricated checksum statement
743      to make it easy to update a port (jberry in r32441).
744
745    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_prefix"" runtime error on Panther
746      (eridius in r32525).
747
748    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_channels"" runtime error on Panther
749      (eridius in r32514).
750
751    - "port lint" now recognizes non-canonical modelines (afb in r32480).
752
753    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
754
755    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
756      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_version (jmpp in r32353).
757
758    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents
759      (jmpp in r32336).
760
761    - Fixed a Panther build failure due to missing sqlite headers (jmpp in r32212).
762
763    - Fixed a build failure by passing the base/src/cregistry/cregistry.a archive through ranlib (jmpp in r32105).
764
765
766Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
767
768    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
769      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
770      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
771      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
772
773    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
774      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
775
776    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
777
778    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
779      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
780
781    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
782      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
783      (#10651, jberry in r31139, r31140).
784
785    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
786      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
787      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
788      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).
789
790    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
791
792    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
793      multiple files (mww in r31028)
794
795    - add optional configure.pipe output (afb in r29604 & r30824)
796
797    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)
798
799    - add configure.[awk|bison|pkg_config|pkg_config_path] (r30761)
800
801    - Auto-mode for number of parallel build threads (if number of jobs is set to "0") (r30739)
802
803    - Add option use_parallel_build [yes|no] to declare if a port can be built in parallel (r30714).
804
805    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).
806

851    - Add group code for Python 3.0
852
853    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
854
855    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
856      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
857
858    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
859

863
864    - Elias Pipping's GSoC2007 work: merge.rb on his personal /users/pipping svn dir.
865
866
867Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
868
869    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
870      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
871      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
872
873
874Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
875
876    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
877      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
878
879    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
880      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
881
882    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
883
884    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
885      (mww in r27199).
886
887    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
888
889    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
890
891    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
892
893    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
894      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
895
896    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
897
898    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
899
900    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
901
902
903Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
904
905    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
906      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
907      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
908      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
909      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
910
911    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
912
913    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
914
915    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
916      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
917      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
918      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
919      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
920
921    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
922
923    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
924      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
925
926    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
927
928    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
929      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
930
931    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
932      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
933      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
934      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
935      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
936      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
937
938    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
939
940    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
941
942    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
943
944    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
945      to detect problems between required and negated variants
946      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
947
948    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
949      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
950      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
951      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
952
953    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
954      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
955
956    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
957      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
958      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
959
960    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
961      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
962         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
963         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
964      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
965      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
966      (jberry r25795).
967
968    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
969
970    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
971      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
972      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
973
974    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
975      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
976
977    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
978      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
979
980    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
981      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
982      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
983      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
984      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
985      (boeyms in r25310)
986
987Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
988
989    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
990
991Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
992
993    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
994
995    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
996      This allows information about variants to be displayed (e.g. dependencies).
997      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
998      (eridius r25255).
999
1000    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
1001
1002    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
1003      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
1004      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
1005
1006    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
1007      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
1008
1009    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
1010      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
1011      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
1012      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
1013      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
1014      (boeyms r25110)
1015
1016    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
1017      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
1018      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
1019      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
1020
1021    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
1022
1023    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
1024      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
1025
1026    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
1027      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
1028
1029    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
1030
1031    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
1032      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
1033
1034    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
1035      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
1036      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
1037      (jberry r25146)
1038
1039    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
1040         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
1041         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
1042         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
1043           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
1044           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
1045
1046        Example:
1047
1048            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
1049                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
1050            }
1051
1052        (jberry r25147)
1053
1054    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
1055      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
1056
1057
1058Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
1059
1060    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
1061      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
1062      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
1063      it differently.
1064
1065    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
1066      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
1067      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
1068      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
1069      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
1070
1071    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
1072      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
1073      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
1074
1075    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
1076
1077    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
1078
1079    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
1080      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
1081
1082    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
1083
1084    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
1085
1086    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
1087      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
1088      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
1089
1090    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
1091      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
1092
1093    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
1094      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
1095
1096    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
1097      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
1098
1099    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
1100
1101    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
1102      (pguyot r24273).
1103
1104    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
1105      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
1106      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
1107
1108    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
1109      This work is in progress. (jberry)
1110       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
1111       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
1112         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
1113
1114    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
1115      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
1116
1117    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
1118      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
1119
1120    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
1121      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
1122
1123    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
1124
1125    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
1126
1127Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
1128
1129    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
1130      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
1131      (jberry r24151).
1132
1133    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
1134      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
1135      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
1136      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
1137      (pipping r24148).
1138
1139Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
1140
1141    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
1142      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
1143
1144    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
1145      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
1146
1147    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
1148      for submitter information.
1149      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
1150        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
1151        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
1152            - PORTSRC
1153            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
1154            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
1155          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
1156       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
1157
1158    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
1159      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
1160
1161    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
1162      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
1163      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
1164      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1165
1166    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1167
1168    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
1169      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
1170
1171Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
1172
1173    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
1174      (pipping in r23343).
1175
1176    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
1177      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
1178
1179    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
1180      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
1181      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
1182
1183    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
1184      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
1185
1186    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
1187      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
1188      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
1189
1190    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
1191
1192    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
1193      r22313).
1194
1195    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
1196      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
1197      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
1198      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
1199
1200    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
1201      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
1202
1203    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
1204      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
1205
1206    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
1207      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
1208
1209    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
1210      r23967)
1211
1212
1213Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
1214
1215    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
1216      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
1217
1218    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
1219
1220    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
1221      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
1222
1223    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
1224
1225    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
1226
1227    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
1228      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
1229
1230    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
1231
1232    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
1233
1234    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
1235      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
1236
1237    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
1238      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
1239
1240    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
1241      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
1242      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
1243
1244    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
1245
1246    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
1247      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
1248
1249    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
1250      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
1251
1252    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
1253      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
1254
1255    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
1256
1257    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
1258
1259    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
1260      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
1261
1262    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
1263
1264    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
1265
1266    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
1267
1268    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
1269      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
1270
1271    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
1272      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
1273
1274    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
1275
1276    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
1277
1278
1279Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
1280
1281    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
1282      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
1283
1284    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
1285
1286    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
1287      code. (pguyot)
1288
1289    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
1290      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
1291
1292    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
1293      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
1294
1295    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
1296      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
1297      /usr/local. (pguyot)
1298
1299    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
1300
1301    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
1302      (josh_root, blb)
1303
1304    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
1305      are modified. (pguyot)
1306
1307    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
1308      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1309
1310    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
1311      variable. (pguyot)
1312
1313    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
1314      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
1315      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
1316
1317Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
1318
1319    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
1320
1321    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
1322      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
1323
1324    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
1325      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
1326      SVN. (pguyot)
1327
1328    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
1329      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
1330
1331    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
1332      (jberry)
1333
1334    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
1335      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
1336
1337    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
1338
1339    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
1340
1341    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1342
1343    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
1344       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
1345       * mention interactive and batch modes
1346       * document extensions to info command.
1347
1348    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
1349
1350    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
1351      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
1352      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
1353
1354Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
1355
1356    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
1357      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
1358      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
1359
1360    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
1361      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
1362
1363    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
1364      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
1365
1366    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
1367
1368    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
1369
1370    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
1371      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
1372
1373    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
1374      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
1375
1376    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
1377
1378    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
1379      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
1380
1381    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
1382
1383    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
1384      (jberry)
1385
1386    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
1387      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
1388      (landonf)
1389
1390    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
1391      installed. (jmpp)
1392
1393    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
1394      project path. (pguyot)
1395
1396    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
1397      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
1398
1399    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
1400      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
1401
1402    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
1403      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
1404
1405    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
1406      (olegb)
1407
1408    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
1409      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
1410
1411    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
1412      iterating). (jberry)
1413
1414    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
1415      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
1416      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
1417
1418    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
1419
1420    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
1421      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
1422      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
1423      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
1424      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
1425      shoot yourself. (jberry)
1426
1427    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
1428      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
1429
1430    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
1431      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
1432
1433    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
1434
1435    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
1436      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
1437        several bug fixes.
1438      * cleaned up the code.
1439      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
1440        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
1441        reported creations).
1442      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
1443        overwritten.
1444
1445    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
1446
1447    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
1448      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
1449      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
1450
1451        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
1452          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
1453          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
1454
1455        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
1456          input following any commands given as arguments.
1457
1458        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
1459          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
1460          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
1461            #!/usr/bin/env portf
1462
1463        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
1464
1465        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
1466
1467        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
1468          interactive/batch mode.
1469
1470        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
1471
1472        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
1473          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
1474          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
1475
1476    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
1477      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
1478      (jberry).
1479
1480    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
1481      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
1482
1483    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
1484      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
1485      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
1486
1487    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
1488      (pguyot)
1489
1490    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
1491
1492    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
1493      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
1494      (jberry)
1495
1496    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
1497      MacOS X. (mww)
1498
1499    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
1500      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
1501      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
1502      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
1503      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
1504      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
1505      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
1506      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
1507      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
1508      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
1509      (jberry) 2006-02-16
1510
1511Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
1512
1513    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
1514      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
1515      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
1516      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
1517      fat, configure as follows:
1518        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
1519                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
1520
1521    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
1522      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
1523      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
1524
1525Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
1526
1527    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
1528      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
1529      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
1530        port uninstall vim @1.0
1531      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
1532      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
1533
1534    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
1535      destroot, too. (mww)
1536
1537    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
1538      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
1539
1540    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
1541      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
1542      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
1543
1544    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
1545      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
1546      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
1547
1548    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
1549      groups of ports.
1550      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
1551      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
1552
1553      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
1554        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
1555
1556      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
1557      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
1558      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
1559      The selectors are:
1560      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
1561      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
1562      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
1563
1564    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
1565      ports or groups of ports.
1566      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
1567
1568    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
1569      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
1570      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
1571      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
1572
1573    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
1574      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
1575
1576    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
1577      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
1578      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
1579
1580    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
1581      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
1582      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
1583      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
1584      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
1585      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
1586
1587    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
1588      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
1589      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
1590
1591    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
1592      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
1593
1594    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
1595      ones considered harmful (blb)
1596
1597    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
1598      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
1599
1600    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
1601      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
1602
1603    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
1604        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
1605          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
1606        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
1607          reports (pguyot)
1608        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
1609
1610    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
