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
28    - Add @pkgdep lines to archives, with build-time dependencies.
29      (afb in r76919)
30
31Release 1.9.2 (2010-11-07 by jmr):
32
33    - Added more locking to avoid TOCTOU errors when running multiple port(1)
34      instances (#19935, jmr in r70174)
35
36    - Fixed -q not suppressing output from 'port lint' (#25880, jmr in r70163)
37
38    - Added a helpful message when there is a checksum mismatch and the
39      distfile appears to incorrectly be a HTML document (#25128,
40      ryandesign/jmr in r70143)
41
42    - Now checking early on if there are sufficient privileges to install,
43      and failing before building anything if not (#25671, jmr in r70135)
44
45    - Avoided possible failure when the -u option is used when upgrading a
46      port that is marked as being replaced by another (jmr in r69022)
47
48    - Using the platform-specific PortIndex when syncing using a daily tarball
49      (jmr in r68786)
50
51    - Fixed failures when fetch target is run without root privileges and the
52      port is then installed with them (#25418, #25937; jmr in r69334, r70271)
53
54    - Fixed upgrading ports where the new version differs from the old version
55      only in epoch (jmr in r69436)
56
57    - Fixed [un]setrequested when using the flat registry format
58      (#26352, jmr in r69387)
59
60    - Fixed checking for conflicting ports before installation
61      (#25386, jmr in r69105)
62
63    - Now gracefully handling distfiles that use a tag that is not
64      associated with any sites (#25332, jmr in r68965)
65
66    - Fixed running 'port deps' on multiple ports, and changed its output
67      format back to how it was in 1.8 (#25324, jmr in r68950)
68
69    - Fixed premature privilege dropping (#25331, jmr in r68952)
70
71Release 1.9.1 (2010-06-18 by jmr):
72    - Fixed a couple of problems with new 1.9 features when using the flat
73      registry format (jmr in r68910, r68913)
74
75    - Ports using the replaced_by option will once again be deactivated when
76      an upgrade is performed on them (#25270, jmr in r68872)
77
78    - Fixed the possibility of some empty directories being left behind when
79      a port is deactivated (#25268, jmr in r68864)
80
81    - Fixed failure to detect conflicts with files that are not provided by
82      a port before activation starts (#25255, jmr in r68849)
83
84    - Fixed problems with distfile names containing spaces (#25245, #25246;
85      jmr in r68816, r68817)
86
87    - Fixed a problem with uninstall when using direct mode, and started
88      running pre/post activate and deactivate procedures when installing and
89      uninstalling in direct mode, respectively (#11562, jmr in r68697)
90
91    - fixed a crasher that affected Tiger (#25194, jmr in r68675, r68680,
92      r68691)
93
94Release 1.9.0 (2010-06-08 by jmr):
95
96    - It is no longer possible to use include statements in Portfiles
97      (raimue in r68206)
98
99    - Command line options can be abbreviated if unambiguous
100      (raimue in r66837)
101
102    - Added a new variable 'os.subplatform'. When os.platform is darwin, the
103      subplatform is either 'macosx' or 'puredarwin'.
104
105    - 'platform' no longer creates a variant, instead it executes the code in
106      the body immediately if the current platform matches the one specified.
107
108    - Using a Portfile with a modification date in the future now causes an
109      informative error early on, instead of just discarding the workdir at
110      the start of every phase. (#24717, raimue in r65246)
111
112    - Fetching from servers that require a cookie to be set now works.
113      (#24584, raimue in r66785)
114
115    - Fixed an error when everything is deleted from the patchfiles list.
116      (#24178, raimue in r65243)
117
118    - Added 'license:' pseudo-port selector. (#24123, perry in r65033)
119
120    - Added new fetch.type 'bzr'. (#23436, perry in r65096)
121
122    - Added 'rdeps' and 'rdependents' actions, recursive versions of 'deps'
123      and 'dependents' respectively. Also added 'depof:', 'rdepof:',
124      'dependentof:' and 'rdependentof:' pseudo-port selectors, for specifying
125      the ports that are dependencies or dependents of the given port.
126      (#22346, jmr in r65858/r66198)
127
128    - Updated the description of the search action in the port(1) man page.
129      (#23749, jmr in r66670)
130
131    - Dry-run now uses /dev/null as the statefile, which prevents a couple of
132      problems involving locking and variant checks.
133      (#21794, #21962; jmr in r66921)
134
135    - The list of dependencies to be installed is now displayed immediately
136      after computing them. (#21540, jmr in r66321)
137
138    - The quick index is now reloaded after syncing in interactive mode, which
139      prevents errors due to it not matching the updated PortIndex.
140      (#20874, jmr in r66319, refinement of patch from carrel.org:edward)
141
142    - The architectures of dependencies are checked when installing a port. If
143      a dependency does not provide the required arch(s), it is rebuilt with
144      +universal if that is possible and will help, otherwise the install fails
145      and an error message explains why. (#20728, jmr in r65087)
146
147    - New supported_archs option allows ports to indicate which architectures
148      they can be built for. The default values of configure.build_arch and
149      configure.universal_archs change based on this list. Set this to
150      'noarch' if a port installs only architecture-independent files.
151      (#20739, jmr in r64372/r64945)
152
153    - Declaring a variant that requires one or more other variants will now
154      correctly set the required variants, so they can be checked with
155      variant_isset. (#19224, jmr in r66642)
156
157    - 'port outdated' now indicates the reason why a port that appears to have
158      the same version as that in the tree is considered outdated. Possible
159      reasons are that the epoch is higher, or the installed version was built
160      on a different OS version. (#19138, jmr in r64960)
161
162    - Distfile names are now percent-escaped in the download URLs when needed.
163      (#18736, jmr in r66794)
164
165    - buildnicevalue is now applied to configure and destroot commands, and to
166      build commands with unusual names. (#18304, raimue in r65076/r65808)
167
168    - Removed hardcoded /opt/local prefix from the base dmg resources.
169      (#17633, jmr in r66776)
170
171    - Fixed an error that occurred when archive mode was enabled but
172      ${prefix}/var/macports/packages did not exist. (#17579, jmr in r66775)
173
174    - Syncing rsync sources now tries to get a platform-specific version of
175      the PortIndex from the server, and skips this if the local copy is less
176      than a day old. All sync methods now update the PortIndex at the end.
177      (#17157, jmr in r66846/r67207)
178
179    - portindex(1) now skips parsing Portfiles whose modification time is
180      older than the current PortIndex, instead reusing the existing entry.
181      (#16235, jmr in r66845)
182
183    - Added a 'requested' flag to the registry that indicates which ports were
184      installed explicitly (as opposed to as a dependency of something else).
185      This enables the new 'requested', 'unrequested' and 'leaves' pseudo-
186      ports, as well as the --follow-dependencies option for uninstall.
187      The setrequested and unsetrequested actions will set and clear the flag,
188      respectively.
189      (#15260, jmr in r64517, r64663, r65546, r66037, r66200, r66215)
190
191    - The macports1.0 directory is now installed to
192      ${prefix}/share/macports/Tcl rather than /Library/Tcl. A symlink will be
193      installed in the old location if there is nothing there already, so
194      'package require macports' will still work in tclsh.
195      (#12943, jmr in r65055)
196
197    - Added warning and error messags when Xcode is old enough to cause
198      problems or too old to use at all, respectively. (#12794, jmr in r66771)
199
200    - Removed the rather outdated copy of sqlite3 from the source tree, made
201      the sqlite3 directory configurable, and added defaults for non-darwin
202      platforms. (#12231, jmr in r64358/r64363)
203
204    - There is a new 'archivefetch' target which is run before unarchive when
205      archive mode is enabled, and attempts to download the archive from a
206      server. There are currently no sites configured to download from (these
207      are stored in the ports tree like the mirror sites used for fetch), but
208      you can set ARCHIVE_SITE_LOCAL in the environment. Note that there is no
209      integrity checking for archives yet. (#8571, jmr in r64816)
210
211    - Now recording negative variants in the registry, which stops deselected
212      variants from being reactivated on upgrade due to default_variants or
213      variants.conf settings. (#2377, jmr in r64533)
214
215    - Added support for pre- and post- procedures for the activate, deactivate
216      and uninstall targets. This feature requires portdbformat sqlite. There
217      was limited support for pre- and post-activate previously, but the
218      procedures were only run when installing the port, not when activating
219      an inactive version. (#1068, #4228, #18273; jmr in r64638/r64639)
220
221    - Integrated the sqlite-based registry2.0 code. The portdbformat variable
222      in macports.conf can be set to 'sqlite' to enable it. Existing flat
223      receipts will be converted the first time port(1) is run with sufficient
224      privileges. Original code by sfiera, fixed and integrated by jmr in
225      r63398 and following. The new format lacks a number of problems that the
226      old one suffers from, including #13054 (dependencies from old port
227      versions stick around across upgrades) and #14123 (files whose paths
228      differ only in case are left behind when uninstalling).
229
230    - Fixed file list in +CONTENTS file in archives. (#21864, jmr in r59882)
231
232    - Fixed a few issues reported with building MacPorts on Linux. (#22716)
233
234    - Upgrade will now always choose the port that is active when following
235      dependencies that could be satisfied by more than one port and more than
236      one of these is installed, instead of choosing the one actually named in
237      the depspec. (#23921, jmr in r60883)
238
239    - Extracting from a disk image ("use_dmg yes") no longer fails when there
240      is a space in $worksrcdir. (#23456, raimue in r67089)
241
242    - Added a configure.sdkroot option which can be used to build against a
243      Mac OS X SDK. It is empty by default unless the value of
244      macosx_deployment_target is not the current OS version, or the universal
245      variant is set and the current platform is PowerPC Tiger. It is also
246      possible to set macosx_deployment_target globally in macports.conf now,
247      but this is unsupported. (#19875, jmr in r66924)
248
249    - Add "fs-traverse -tails" which only returns the part following the
250      specified directory (#21873, raimue in r65785)
251
252    - Allow gcc45 port to be used in configure.compiler (ryandesign in r62223)
253
254    - svn checkouts now use peg revisions instead of operative revisions,
255      so they'll continue to work if a repository gets reorganized
256      (#20777, ryandesign in r60573)
257
258    - Print the location of the log file when a target fails (jmr in r60769)
259
260    - Use CommonCrypto/CommonDigest instead of OpenSSL libcrypto.
261      (toby in r58131, jberry in r59715)
262
263    - New "patch.type gnu" for GNU patch, similar to "build.type gnu"
264      for GNU make. Only makes a difference for BSD patch and BSD make.
265      (afb in r58020)
266
267    - Updated the FreeBSD package (ObjC/Foundation is now optional).
268      (afb in r57889)
269
270    - Don't use "make -j1" for build.jobs=1, but prefer "make" instead.
271      (afb in r57998)
272
273    - Add new "use_xz yes" port option to allow distfiles in xz format.
274      (afb in r57827)
275
276    - Archive mode now uses build_arch in archive names rather than os.arch.
277      (snc in r58977)
278
279    - Add new log command and keeping of debug output for easy access
280      after port has run (GSoC 2009 logging project by enl, merged in r60372)
281
282    - Some of the build_arch flags now appear in LDFLAGS as well, fixing
283      several ports when building for a different architecture (jeremyhu in
284      r60662, jmr in r60680)
285
286    - Fixed 'merge' proc for paths with spaces, and for symlinks on Snow
287      Leopard, and added an error message for when 'merge' is not called
288      correctly (#21852, ryandesign in r58776, r58777, r58778)
289
290Release 1.8.2 (2010-01-01 by jmr):
291
292    - Fixed 'port load' for non-root installations (#21713, jmr in r60774)
293
294    - Fixed a bug that could cause port to hit the open file limit
295      (#22959, jmr in r61770)
296
297    - Fixed an error when installing from source or selfupdating on Tiger with
298      an svn-based ports tree (#20760, jmr in r61302)
299
300    - Fixed an error when selfupdating as root with a prefix that is not owned
301      by root (#21010, jmr in r60798)
302
303    - Stopped uninstall from failing when files in the port image have already
304      been deleted (#22001, jmr in r59318, r59654)
305
306    - Stopped printing command output multiple times on failure (#21084,
307      jmr in r60770)
308
309    - Started showing bug reporting instructions on failure (jmr in r60770)
310
311    - Fixed a bug where 'port dmg' could create too small an image and run out
312      of space (#22404, jmr in r60260)
313
314    - Fixed a bug where reinplace could fail when running port without root
315      privileges (#20896, jmr in r59597)
316
317    - Started setting our own umask since Snow Leopard makes us inherit
318      the user's even when using sudo (#21389, jmr in r59585)
319
320Release 1.8.1 (2009-09-28 by jmr):
321
322    - Installer error messages now display properly even from the Snow Leopard
323      MacPorts dmg. (jmr in r56448)
324
325    - 'fetch.type svn' no longer requires the installation of the subversion
326      port as of Snow Leopard. (toby in r56160; raimue in r56162)
327
328    - Updated manpages and 'port help' output (ryandesign in r56472, r56473,
329      r56474; blb in r56666, r57048, r57131)
330
331    - Fixed syncing using the daily tarball. (#21034, toby in r56889)
332
333    - Fixed 'port load' (#21128, raimue in r57055)
334
335    - Improved error message when an expression on the command line does not
336      match any ports (jmr in r57026)
337
338    - Stopped recording the completion of the install phase in the
339      statefile, which led to errors if the port was uninstalled but the work
340      dir was not cleaned, and the port was then installed again.
341      (jmr/raimue in r57801, 57820)
342
343Release 1.8.0 (2009-08-28 by jmr):
344    - There is now a 'build_arch' variable, available in portfiles and
345      configurable in macports.conf, which sets the CPU architecture that
346      ports should be compiled for (when not building universal). Its default
347      is the same as that of the Apple-supplied /usr/bin/gcc.
348      (#19874, jmr in r53217,r53386,r53420,r53494,r53860,r54236)
349
350    - MacPorts base now works on and has appropriate default settings for
351      Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. (#19874, toby/mww/jkh in r38271,r40060,
352      r40836,r43976,r52397)
353     
354    - MacPorts now requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later. (Panther is not
355      just "unsupported", it really won't work.)
356
357    - The universal_sysroot and universal_target keys have been removed from
358      macports.conf. These settings are now handled automatically.
359      (toby in r52324)
360
361    - Added a 'replaced_by' portfile option. This causes upgrade to deactivate
362      the current port and install the port specified by this option. This
363      also allows ports to be renamed. Upgrade accepts a --no-replace option
364      which disables this behaviour. (#20157, jmr in r54378)
365
366    - The upgrade action now accepts --force and --enforce-variants options.
367      The former causes ports to be rebuilt even if they are not outdated, and
368      the global -f option no longer has this effect (it had too many effects
369      already). The latter causes ports to be rebuilt if the requested
370      variants do not match those installed (even if they are not outdated).
371      (#20156, jmr in r54376)
372
373    - Dependencies can be satisfied by ports that are installed but not
374      available in the ports tree (useful for testing uncommitted ports).
375      (jmr in r52075, r52160)
376
377    - Ports that are installed but not available in the ports tree no longer
378      cause an error when running commands like 'port clean installed'. They
379      are skipped and a warning is printed. (#19253, jmr in r50865)
380
381    - Selfupdate no longer disables readline support unless readline is found
382      in /usr/local, which has historically caused failures.
383      (#19035, jmr in r50868)
384
385    - Uninstalling a port that is not installed now produces an informational
386      message rather than an error. (#18984, jmr in r53709)
387
388    - Added a 'conflicts' portfile option. Conflicting ports will be detected
389      during dependency calculation. (#18794, blb/jmr in r51525)
390
391    - 'port selfupdate' now explicitly states precisely what it does. (#18512)
392
393    - Operating system and architecture information is now shown in debug
394      output. (#18435, raimue in r46669)
395
396    - Fixed a bug that could break some symlinks to man pages. (#18302)
397
398    - Switched to a more efficient algorithm for looking up port information
399      in the index, which makes many operations faster.
400      (#18259, jmr/blb in r47110)
401
402    - MacPorts base now tries to avoid using commands that come from ports, so
403      that a broken port can't break the base code. (#18149)
404
405    - Deleting all the contents of a portfile option no longer unsets the
406      option entirely. (#17865, toby in r44901)
407
408    - Removed the code that upgrades from the old DarwinPorts filesystem
409      layout. Trying to upgrade to 1.8.0+ from a version older than 1.5.0 will
410      produce an error message saying you need to install 1.7.1 first.
411      (#17619, jmr in r53260)
412
413    - port(1) now reports its version as dotted-decimal rather than floating
414      point. (#17420)
415
416    - Dependencies are now always obtained by parsing the Portfile and not
417      from the PortIndex, since the latter can't provide expanded variables
418      like $prefix which may be used in path: depspecs. (#17182)
419
420    - Newline characters in long_description can no longer cause receipt
421      corruption. (#16619, blb in r50663)
422
423    - Now unlocking the filemap when it is not in use. This allows e.g.
424      'port contents' to be run while another port instance is performing
425      installs. Note that running more than one simultaneous port instance
426      that will modify the registry can easily fail, though hopefully
427      without corrupting anything. (#16246, jmr in r51133)
428
429    - Removed some irrelevant debug output that was being printed when a port
430      failed. (#16203, jmr in r53706)
431
432    - Added new depends_fetch and depends_extract options, for dependencies
433      that are needed to fetch or extract the port, respectively.
434      (#15161, jmr in r51780)
435
436    - Packages (including the one for MacPorts base) now correctly indicate
437      that they can only be installed on the root volume.
438      (#14809, jmr in r53250)
439
440    - Using an alternative fetch or extract type now adds appropriate
441      dependencies automatically, e.g. 'use_zip yes' adds a dep on unzip, and
442      'fetch.type svn' adds a dep on subversion. (#13981, jmr in r43782)
443
444    - port(1) should now exit with an appropriate status code when an error is
445      encountered. Use the -p option to continue despite errors.
446      (#13918, jmr in r53704)
447
448    - Proxy information can now be obtained from System Preferences and from
449      macports.conf. The older method using environment variables no longer
450      works out of the box on Leopard due to changes that Apple made to the
451      default /etc/sudoers. (#13158, blb in r47194)
452
453    - Improved handling of malformed variant definitions.
454      (#12596, jmr in r50719, r50721)
455
456    - Cope a little better with missing receipt files. (#19540, jmr in r51138)
457
458    - Fixed a major memory leak in the filemap code.
459      (#12022, pguyot in r51419)
460
461    - Improved the logic for determining whether phases can be skipped. This
462      fixes the specific problems of being unable to build packages of ports
463      that are installed, port not running specific phases (e.g. build)
464      when told to if the port is installed, and inactive dependencies being
465      rebuilt instead of simply activated. (#10881, #16260, jmr in r50490)
466
467    - When archive mode is enabled, ports will no longer be rebuilt if an
468      archive is available. (#10785, jmr in r50416)
469
470    - Activating a port will now first deactivate any other version of the
471      same port that is already active. (#10571, jmr in r53711)
472
473    - Added a 'license' portfile option, which is displayed in 'port info'
474      output. (#7493, jmr in r50801)
475
476    - port lint recognizes new top-level category php (#19329, ryandesign)
477
478    - Do not print header lines when the quiet option -q is set
479      (raimue in r48558)
480
481    - svn.tag is deprecated, use svn.revision instead (raimue in r48222-48223)
482
483    - port -i option has been removed (blb in r48218)
484
485    - ui_warn logs to stderr instead of stdout (raimue in r48217)
486
487    - Remove --pretend option for port selfupdate, use global dry-run option
488      instead (raimue in r48125)
489
490    - port(1) option -y for dry-run (#11892, gwhitney/jmr in r43726)
491
492    - New pseudo-port 'obsolete' to identify ports which are installed but no
493      longer in the PortIndex (raimue in r47253)
494
495    - MacPorts can now perform fetch, extract, patch, configure and build in a
496      user rather than system owned location. By default, this is
497      ~/.macports/opt. This allows MacPorts to do all but the install of the
498      port without root privileges. (gsoc08-privileges)
499
500    - MacPorts can now automatically drop privileges so as to avoid running as
501      root whenever possible. To enable this, pass the desired user to run as
502      to configure with the --with-macports-user option. (gsoc08-privileges)
503
504    - The Portfile format has a number of new boolean attributes to indicate
505      when an action should or should not be run with root privileges:
506      'patch.asroot', 'build.asroot', 'configure.asroot', 'destroot.asroot',
507      and 'install.asroot'. The default for all is "no". If the prefix folder
508      (by default /opt/local) is not writable, MacPorts will attempt to
509      elevate privileges to root for the install phase. (gsoc08-privileges)
510
511    - A "make group" command has been added to the Makefile and a
512      "--with-shared-directory" switch to the configure script. Running "make
513      group" will create a macports group. "--with-shared-directory" will let
514      let the group specified by "--with-install-group" have full read write
515      access to the /opt/local hierarchy. This will allow users who are
516      members of the new macports group to have full write permissions to
517      /opt/local and its subfolders, and hence to install ports which only
518      affect that hierarchy without requiring root privileges.
519      (gsoc08-privileges)
520
521    - A switch called "--with-no-root-privileges" has been added for use by
522      user installing MacPorts for their own use only. An example configure
523      command would be "./configure
524      --prefix=/Users/{your-user-name-here}/.macports/opt
525      --with-no-root-privileges" (gsoc08-privileges)
526
527    - Add several new options to port search, looks in name and description by
528      default (#15434, raimue)
529
530    - Add xpkg package type, xar-based format with XML. (afb)
531
532    - Split portpkg creation out from portsubmit phase. (afb)
533
534    - Make dependencies displayed in port info respect variants
535      specified in variants.conf; collapse port deps to be an alias
536      for port info with appropriate flags. Note this changes output
537      format of port deps somewhat.  (#11891, gwhitney in r44340)
538
539    - Make dependencies in port upgrade respect variants as specified
540      (in order of precedence) on command line, latest installed
541      version, or variants.conf .  (#8221, gwhitney in r44362)
542
543    - Add select action, which integrates *_select tools into port.
544      (#17477, perry)
545
546    - The variants action additionally shows default variants, conflicting
547      variants and variants' dependencies. (#14178, #15628, perry)
548
549    - Implicit variants (e.g., darwin) can no longer be explicitly
550      set/unset. (#12563, perry in r46938, jmr in r53371)
551
552Release 1.7.1 (2009-03-28 by raimue):
553    - Trailing slashes are stripped from the prefix passed to configure, which
554      prevents incorrect mtree violation warnings. (#13789)
555
556    - Fix freshmeat-based livecheck (#18887)
557
558    - Fix issue on direct-mode installs where checking for installed ports
559      wasn't properly looking (it only matched for revision 0 and no
560      variants) (#17762)
561
562    - Add new "use_7z yes" port option to allow distfiles in 7z format
563      (#18521, ryandesign)
564
565    - port lint no longer requires variable master_sites if the port has no
566      distfiles (#18479, ryandesign)
567
568    - Upgrade will no longer accept ports that are not installed (but it still
569      installs new ports as dependencies if needed). In particular, this means
570      that "port upgrade all" will no longer proceed to install every
571      available port. (jmr in r46052)
572
573    - Add mkdtemp Tcl command to create temporary directories. (#17181, perry)
574
575    - Add 'apple-gcc-4.2' option to configure.compiler (#18426, ryandesign)
576
577    - Create ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} in destroot
578      automatically (r45614, raimue)
579
580    - Make the postflight procedure a bit smarter about which login files
581      to update for bash and tcsh (#17588)
582
583    - Add error messages to package installers when the wrong OS package
584      is being installed (#13141)
585
586Release 1.7.0 (2008-12-13 by blb):
587    - Global variant descriptions using variant_descriptions.conf in the new
588      resources directory in the ports tree (#14482, raimue)
589
590    - Move port resources into the ports tree (#14553, raimue and blb)
591
592    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
593
594    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
595
596    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
597
598    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
599      --nitpick is used (#14799)
600
601    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
602
603    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
604
605    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
606      phases (#11897)
607
608    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
609      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
610
611    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
612      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
613      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
614      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
615
616    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
617      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
618      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
619      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
620      in r38683)
621
622    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
623
624    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
625      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
626      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
627
628    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
629      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
630      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
631      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, r37621)
632
633    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
634      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
635      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
636      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
637
638    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
639      (#15577, afb in r37501)
640
641    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
642
643    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
644      running (raimue)
645
646    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
647      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
648      jmr in r37217, r37255)
649
650    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
651      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
652      r37121)
653
654    - Stopped 'port -R upgrade' from processing more ports than it should, and
655      from processing ports multiple times. (#10827, jmr in r37046)
656
657    - Don't include build.nice and build.jobs in destroot.cmd (#15295)
658
659    - The default universal variant is no longer added when we know it won't
660      work. (#12170, jmr in r36764)
661
662    - During upgrade, if the latest installed version of a port is not active,
663      the currently active version (if any) is now deactivated before trying
664      to activate the latest version. (#12013, jmr in r36762)
665
666    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is
667      inactive and there is at least one other version of the same port
668      installed (#11501, jmr in r36747)
669
670    - Duplicate entries can no longer build up in the dependency map (#8763,
671      jmr in r36745)
672
673    - In image mode, dependencies are no longer treated as being satisfied
674      when the satisfying port is not active (#7361, jmr in r36735)
675
676    - Fixed a bug where upgrade could create too many nested subdirectories
677      in distpath, archive.destpath and unarchive.srcpath (#11971, jmr in
678      r36679, r36687, r36688)
679
680    - Declaring a dependency on a nonexistent port now always causes an error
681      (#10768, jmr in r36648)
682
683    - Explicitly use unsetenv(3) on all environment variables (#13930, #16010,
684      #16233)
685
686    - Make the included tclthread compile on Leopard if configured (#13495)
687
688    - Allow distfiles to be disk images with "use_dmg yes" port option (#13509,
689      ryandesign in r36708)
690
691    - ruby.setup now takes a type 'fetch' to just fetch/extract (eridius in r35773)
692
693    - Fetch now prefers mirrors with lower ping times (#14891, jmr in r35748,
694      r35806, r35808)
695
696    - Fetching of daily snapshot tarballs of the ports tree as an alternative to rsync
697      (raimue in r35647, r35648)
698
699    - port uninstall now takes --follow-dependents to uninstall all dependents
700      (#14637, eridius/raimue in r34977, r35042, r36160)
701
702    - New fetch.type git (#14232, eridius in r34875)
703
704    - fixed "port mdmg" getting block size wrong for the disk image (#13968, afb in r34844)
705
706    - always set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, to avoid bugs with older glibtool (afb in r34541)
707
708    - port lint now checks all dependencies so that the ports actually exist (#14380)
709
710    - added target_state to avoid the need for privileges for lint/livecheck (#13458)
711
712    - Overhauled output for port info/deps/dependents/search (raimue in
713      r34354, r34371, r34391, r34395, r34402, r34420)
714
715    - Revert the default +universal MDT/SDK to 10.4/10.4u on Tiger and 10.5/10.5 on Leopard
716
717    - port lint shouldn't require variable master_sites for fetch.type != standard (#14377)
718
719    - Add "tcldoc" documentation comments and "tcldox" Doxyfile for doxygen (#12048)
720
721    - Add --pretend and --nosync flags to selfupdate (raimue in r33938, r33939,
722      r33940, r33941)
723
724    - Work around autoconf X11 detection bugs on darwin (afb in r33717)
725
726    - Fix bugs with X11 lib detection on Leopard (#14089, afb in r33716)
727
728    - Add configure.{optflags,m32,m64,march,mtune} (afb in r33503, r33599)
729
730    - Add applications_dir and frameworks_dir configuration (r33499, r33722)
731
732    - Remove some hardcoded paths (such as /usr/X11R6, /usr/bin/install) (afb in r33501, r33619, r33620)
733
734    - Add configure.{universal_target,universal_sysroot,universal_archs} (afb in r33478).
735
736    - Change default +universal platform back to: 10.4/10.4u.sdk/i386 ppc (r33087, r33107).
737
738    - Add `port platform` info action that outputs current platform (#12302, afb in r32724).
739
740    - Enable 64 bit environment, ppc64 x86_64, for all +universal builds (mww in r32194).
741
742    - Add 'merge' function for merging multiple (single arch) destroots into one (universal)
743      destroot (mww in r31954).
744
745    - If checksum is mismatched, and in verbose mode, present a corrected pre-fabricated checksum statement
746      to make it easy to update a port (jberry in r32441).
747
748    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_prefix"" runtime error on Panther
749      (eridius in r32525).
750
751    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_channels"" runtime error on Panther
752      (eridius in r32514).
753
754    - "port lint" now recognizes non-canonical modelines (afb in r32480).
755
756    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
757
758    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
759      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_version (jmpp in r32353).
760
761    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents
762      (jmpp in r32336).
763
764    - Fixed a Panther build failure due to missing sqlite headers (jmpp in r32212).
765
766    - Fixed a build failure by passing the base/src/cregistry/cregistry.a archive through ranlib (jmpp in r32105).
767
768
769Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
770
771    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
772      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
773      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
774      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
775
776    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
777      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
778
779    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
780
781    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
782      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
783
784    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
785      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
786      (#10651, jberry in r31139, r31140).
787
788    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
789      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
790      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
791      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).
792
793    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
794
795    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
796      multiple files (mww in r31028)
797
798    - add optional configure.pipe output (afb in r29604 & r30824)
799
800    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)
801
802    - add configure.[awk|bison|pkg_config|pkg_config_path] (r30761)
803
804    - Auto-mode for number of parallel build threads (if number of jobs is set to "0") (r30739)
805
806    - Add option use_parallel_build [yes|no] to declare if a port can be built in parallel (r30714).
807
808    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).

858    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
859      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
860
861    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).

868
869
870Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
871
872    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
873      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
874      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
875
876
877Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
878
879    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
880      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
881
882    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
883      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
884
885    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
886
887    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
888      (mww in r27199).
889
890    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
891
892    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
893
894    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
895
896    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
897      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
898
899    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
900
901    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
902
903    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
904
905
906Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
907
908    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
909      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
910      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
911      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
912      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
913
914    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
915
916    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
917
918    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
919      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
920      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
921      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
922      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
923
924    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
925
926    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
927      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
928
929    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
930
931    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
932      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
933
934    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
935      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
936      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
937      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
938      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
939      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
940
941    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
942
943    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
944
945    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
946
947    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
948      to detect problems between required and negated variants
949      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
950
951    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
952      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
953      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
954      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
955
956    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
957      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
958
959    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
960      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
961      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
962
963    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
964      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
965         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
966         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
967      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
968      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
969      (jberry r25795).
970
971    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
972
973    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
974      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
975      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
976
977    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
978      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
979
980    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
981      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
982
983    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
984      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
985      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
986      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
987      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
988      (boeyms in r25310)
989
990Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
991
992    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
993
994Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
995
996    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
997
998    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
999      This allows information about variants to be displayed (e.g. dependencies).
1000      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
1001      (eridius r25255).
1002
1003    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
1004
1005    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
1006      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
1007      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
1008
1009    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
1010      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
1011
1012    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
1013      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
1014      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
1015      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
1016      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
1017      (boeyms r25110)
1018
1019    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
1020      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
1021      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
1022      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
1023
1024    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
1025
1026    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
1027      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
1028
1029    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
1030      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
1031
1032    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
1033
1034    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
1035      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
1036
1037    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
1038      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
1039      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
1040      (jberry r25146)
1041
1042    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
1043         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
1044         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
1045         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
1046           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
1047           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
1048
1049        Example:
1050
1051            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
1052                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
1053            }
1054
1055        (jberry r25147)
1056
1057    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
1058      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
1059
1060
1061Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
1062
1063    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
1064      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
1065      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
1066      it differently.
1067
1068    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
1069      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
1070      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
1071      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
1072      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
1073
1074    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
1075      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
1076      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
1077
1078    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
1079
1080    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
1081
1082    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
1083      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
1084
1085    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
1086
1087    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
1088
1089    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
1090      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
1091      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
1092
1093    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
1094      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
1095
1096    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
1097      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
1098
1099    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
1100      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
1101
1102    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
1103
1104    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
1105      (pguyot r24273).
1106
1107    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
1108      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
1109      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
1110
1111    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
1112      This work is in progress. (jberry)
1113       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
1114       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
1115         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
1116
1117    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
1118      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
1119
1120    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
1121      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
1122
1123    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
1124      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
1125
1126    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
1127
1128    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
1129
1130Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
1131
1132    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
1133      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
1134      (jberry r24151).
1135
1136    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
1137      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
1138      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
1139      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
1140      (pipping r24148).
1141
1142Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
1143
1144    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
1145      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
1146
1147    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
1148      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
1149
1150    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
1151      for submitter information.
1152      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
1153        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
1154        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
1155            - PORTSRC
1156            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
1157            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
1158          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
1159       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
1160
1161    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
1162      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
1163
1164    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
1165      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
1166      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
1167      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1168
1169    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1170
1171    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
1172      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
1173
1174Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
1175
1176    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
1177      (pipping in r23343).
1178
1179    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
1180      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
1181
1182    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
1183      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
1184      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
1185
1186    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
1187      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
1188
1189    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
1190      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
1191      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
1192
1193    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
1194
1195    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
1196      r22313).
1197
1198    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
1199      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
1200      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
1201      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
1202
1203    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
1204      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
1205
1206    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
1207      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
1208
1209    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
1210      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
1211
1212    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
1213      r23967)
1214
1215
1216Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
1217
1218    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
1219      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
1220
1221    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
1222
1223    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
1224      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
1225
1226    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
1227
1228    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
1229
1230    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
1231      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
1232
1233    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
1234
1235    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
1236
1237    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
1238      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
1239
1240    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
1241      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
1242
1243    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
1244      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
1245      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
1246
1247    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
1248
1249    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
1250      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
1251
1252    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
1253      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
1254
1255    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
1256      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
1257
1258    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
1259
1260    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
1261
1262    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
1263      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
1264
1265    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
1266
1267    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
1268
1269    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
1270
1271    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
1272      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
1273
1274    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
1275      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
1276
1277    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
1278
1279    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
1280
1281
1282Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
1283
1284    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
1285      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
1286
1287    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
1288
1289    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
1290      code. (pguyot)
1291
1292    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
1293      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
1294
1295    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
1296      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
1297
1298    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
1299      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
1300      /usr/local. (pguyot)
1301
1302    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
1303
1304    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
1305      (josh_root, blb)
1306
1307    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
1308      are modified. (pguyot)
1309
1310    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
1311      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1312
1313    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
1314      variable. (pguyot)
1315
1316    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
1317      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
1318      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
1319
1320Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
1321
1322    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
1323
1324    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
1325      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
1326
1327    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
1328      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
1329      SVN. (pguyot)
1330
1331    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
1332      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
1333
1334    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
1335      (jberry)
1336
1337    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
1338      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
1339
1340    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
1341
1342    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
1343
1344    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1345
1346    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
1347       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
1348       * mention interactive and batch modes
1349       * document extensions to info command.
1350
1351    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
1352
1353    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
1354      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
1355      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
1356
1357Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
1358
1359    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
1360      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
1361      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
1362
1363    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
1364      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
1365
1366    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
1367      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
1368
1369    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
1370
1371    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
1372
1373    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
1374      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
1375
1376    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
1377      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
1378
1379    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
1380
1381    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
1382      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
1383
1384    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
1385
1386    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
1387      (jberry)
1388
1389    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
1390      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
1391      (landonf)
1392
1393    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
1394      installed. (jmpp)
1395
1396    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
1397      project path. (pguyot)
1398
1399    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
1400      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
1401
1402    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
1403      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
1404
1405    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
1406      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
1407
1408    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
1409      (olegb)
1410
1411    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
1412      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
1413
1414    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
1415      iterating). (jberry)
1416
1417    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
1418      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
1419      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
1420
1421    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
1422
1423    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
1424      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
1425      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
1426      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
1427      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
1428      shoot yourself. (jberry)
1429
1430    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
1431      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
1432
1433    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
1434      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
1435
1436    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
1437
1438    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
1439      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
1440        several bug fixes.
1441      * cleaned up the code.
1442      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
1443        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
1444        reported creations).
1445      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
1446        overwritten.
1447
1448    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
1449
1450    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
1451      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
1452      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
1453
1454        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
1455          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
1456          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
1457
1458        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
1459          input following any commands given as arguments.
1460
1461        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
1462          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
1463          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
1464            #!/usr/bin/env portf
1465
1466        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
1467
1468        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
1469
1470        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
1471          interactive/batch mode.
1472
1473        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
1474
1475        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
1476          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
1477          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
1478
1479    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
1480      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
1481      (jberry).
1482
1483    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
1484      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
1485
1486    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
1487      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
1488      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
1489
1490    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
1491      (pguyot)
1492
1493    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
1494
1495    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
1496      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
1497      (jberry)
1498
1499    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
1500      MacOS X. (mww)
1501
1502    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
1503      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
1504      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
1505      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
1506      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
1507      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
1508      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
1509      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
1510      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
1511      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
1512      (jberry) 2006-02-16
1513
1514Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
1515
1516    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
1517      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
1518      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
1519      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
1520      fat, configure as follows:
1521        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
1522                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
1523
1524    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
1525      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
1526      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
1527
1528Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
1529
1530    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
1531      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
1532      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
1533        port uninstall vim @1.0
1534      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
1535      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
1536
1537    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
1538      destroot, too. (mww)
1539
1540    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
1541      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
1542
1543    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
1544      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
1545      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
1546
1547    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
1548      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
1549      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
1550
1551    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
1552      groups of ports.
1553      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
1554      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
1555
1556      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
1557        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
1558
1559      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
1560      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
1561      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
1562      The selectors are:
1563      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
1564      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
1565      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
1566
1567    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
1568      ports or groups of ports.
1569      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
1570
1571    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
1572      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
1573      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
1574      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
1575
1576    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
1577      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
1578
1579    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
1580      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
1581      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
1582
1583    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
1584      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
1585      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
1586      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
1587      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
1588      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
1589
1590    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
1591      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
1592      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
1593
1594    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
1595      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
1596
1597    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
1598      ones considered harmful (blb)
1599
1600    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
1601      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
1602
1603    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
1604      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
1605
1606    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
1607        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
1608          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
1609        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
1610          reports (pguyot)
1611        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
1612
1613    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
