6Release 2.1.0 (unreleased):
7    - New configure.compiler options: macports-clang-2.9, macports-clang-3.0,
8      macports-clang-3.1, macports-gcc-4.7, macports-gcc-4.8
9      (jeremyhu in r86719, ryandesign in r91521)
10
11    - Avoid using pkg-config to find sqlite3 in our configure script unless it
12      can't be found by other means, because some third-party packages
13      incorrectly install a /usr/bin/pkg-config that points to an incompatible
14      copy of sqlite3. (#30932, dluke/jmr in r91512)
15
16    - 'port pkg' and 'port mpkg' will now create flat packages (i.e. a xar
17      archive rather than a directory) on 10.6+.
18      (jmr in r91317, r91329, r91331, r91437)
19
20    - Fixed dependencies sometimes being installed multiple times when
21      required with different archs. (#31794, jmr in r91357)
22
23    - Build-time dependencies will no longer be installed if a prebuilt
24      archive is available for download (and port is configured to use it).
25      (jmr in r91196, r91217)
26
27    - Added new config file archive_sites.conf, which can be used to configure
28      additional archive download sources. Each source has an associated
29      archive type; portarchivetype is now only used when creating archives
30      locally. Sources also have an associated prefix, applications_dir and
31      frameworks_dir, and if any of these do not match the current values, the
32      source is not used. (jmr in r91009)
33
34    - Xcode 4.3 support: Search harder for developer directory; advise user to
35      run xcode-select when necessary, searching for Xcode and suggesting
36      xcode-select commands.
37      (jberry, jmr in r89970,r89971,r89972,r89996,r89999,r90003,r90005-r90009,
38      r90018-r90019,r90024,r90031)
39
40    - warn about non-existing developer_dir when it's set in macports.conf
41      (cal in 90802)
42
43    - port automatically installs bsdmake when there's no bsdmake in $PATH and a
44      port sets build.type bsd (#33355, cal in r90650)
45
46    - Added -W option for reinplace that sets a base directory that all file
47      arguments are interpreted as being relative to. (raimue in r90610)
48
49    - Added macports.conf options 'host_blacklist' and 'preferred_hosts', used
50      for indicating lists of download hosts that should not be used or should
51      be used preferentially, respectively. These override the usual ping time
52      check. Ping times are also now cached for 24 hours. (jmr in r89459)
53
54    - Added 'rev-upgrade' action checking for broken linkage and rebuilding
55      ports containing broken files. Made rev-upgrade run automatically after
56      each upgrade or install.
57      (cal in branch gsoc11-rev-upgrade, merge in r88376, also cal, raimue, jmr
58      in r88377,r88411,r88441,r88511,r88666,r88732,r89180,r89659,r89661,r90102,
59      r90381)
60
61    - Added options controlling rev-upgrade behavior to macports.conf
62      (jmr, cal in r88725,r88794,r89189)
63
64    - port livecheck regex finds multiple matches on the same line
65      (raimue in r88031)
66
67    - Several improvements to port lint:
68      licenses, subversion properties, maintainer addresses
69      (#30194, snc, raimue in r85929, r86016, r89428, r89610)
70
71    - Added license_noconflict option to specify dependencies for which the
72      maintainer has manually checked license compatibility and wishes to
73      overrule the conservative automated checks. (jmr in r89004)
74
75    - Xcode 4.3 support: Use xcrun -find to find xcode compiler if it's not
76      found in /usr/bin.
77      (jberry, jmr in r88540,r88541,r88546,r88777,r88779,r88787,r89359,r89984,r90028)
78
79    - Added options compiler.blacklist, compiler.whitelist, and
80      compiler.fallback; to allow blacklisting, whitelisting, and setting the
81      fallback order for configure.compiler values, respectively.
82      (#30041, jmr in r88676)
83
84    - Fix sync with subdirectory of Subversion 1.7-format working copy
85      (#33573, jmr in 86872)
86
87    - Fixed conflicts not being checked for when installing ports that have no
88      dependencies. (#31571, dports in r85382)
89
90    - dmg postflight: quote all paths to handle the increasingly frequent
91      occurrence that $HOME contains spaces (#33583, ryandesign in r84345)
92
93    - dmg postflight: adjust wording of some messages (ryandesign in r84344)
94
95    - The deprecated Portfile options svn.tag, distcheck.check and
96      livecheck.check have been removed. (raimue in r82763)
97
98    - Implement new option-replace using lsearch/lreplace. The old behavior is
99      deprecated for option-replace with only one argument, but can still be
100      found in option-strsed.
101      (raimue in r82760, r82761)
102
103    - Added 'buildfromsource' macports.conf setting, which allows permanently
104      selecting the behaviour of the -s or -b option. (jmr in r81540)
105
106Release 2.0.4 (2012-02-25 by jmr)
107    - Added -locale option for reinplace (jeremyhu in r89839)
108
109    - Xcode 4.3 support: Change home directory for MacPorts user to
110      ${prefix}/var/macports/home.
111      (jberry, jmr in r89988, r89993, r90002, r90010, r90011)
112
113    - set env(HOME) to ${workpath}/.home when building ports
114      (#31827, jmr in r89994, r90004)
115
116    - Fix use_xmkmf to honor xmkmf.env for its make Makefiles phase
117      (#31504, jeremyhu in r89537, r89538, r89539)
118
119    - Added configure.cxx setting when configure.compiler is apple-gcc-4.2
120      (jeremyhu in r80248)
121
122    - Xcode 4.3 support: added packagemaker_path macports.conf setting
123      (jmr in r90058)
124
125    - Resolve ambiguity in selection in portlists
126      (jberry in r88179, r88185)
127
128    - Xcode 4.3 support: updated default developer_dir location for 4.3
129      (jmr in r90016)
130
131    - Xcode 4.3 support: use compilers in /usr/bin instead of developer_dir
132      when possible, as the latter has proven to be volatile.
133      (jmr in r90015)
134
135    - Xcode 4.3 support: updated SDK paths for 4.3 (jmr in r90000)
136
137    - Work around broken FTP proxy support in some versions of libcurl
138      (jmr in r84351, r88045)
139
140Release 2.0.3 (2011-09-05 by raimue)
141    - Fix a regression introduced in 2.0.2 when fetching with a VCS
142      (#31073, jmr in r83471)
143
144Release 2.0.2 (2011-09-01 by jmr):
145    - Messages recommending running selfupdate will no longer be printed when
146      selfupdate is being run. (#23094, jmr in r83270, r83391)
147
148    - The PortIndex will not be regenerated during selfupdate when base is
149      outdated. This avoids failure to index ports that use features only
150      available in the current version. (#30739, jmr in r83271)
151
152    - Fixed build failures when the TMPDIR environment variable is set to a
153      directory that is not writable by the macports user.
154      (#30749, jmr in r83267)
155
156    - Fixed error when checksumming distfiles with names containing spaces.
157      (#28568, jmr in r83149)
158
159    - The uninstall and deactivate actions now sort the port list so that
160      dependents are processed before the ports they depend on.
161      (#8431, jmr in r82947)
162
163    - Fixed an issue where a non-universal version of a port could be
164      installed as a dependency as well as the universal version, with
165      unpredictable results, when some ports in the dependency graph needed
166      the universal version but others didn't. (jmr in r82924)
167
168    - Now using a temp dir inside ${prefix} when activating, as /tmp or
169      /var/folders may be on a different volume. (jmr in r82767)
170
171    - Fixed extracting portfile-only archives. (#31033, jmr in r81830)
172
173    - Fixed adduser and addgroup procedures not re-dropping privileges when
174      done. (jmr in r81630)
175
176    - Fixed error activating ports with names containing the string "cpio".
177      (#30532, jmr in r81577)
178
179Release 2.0.1 (2011-08-02 by jmr):
180    - Fixed errors when installing some archives built on a case-sensitive
181      filesystem onto a case-insensitive one. (#30373, jmr in r81562)
182
183    - Fixed users created by MacPorts showing up in the GUI in some places on
184      Lion. (#30168, jeremyhu in r81558)
185
186    - Added replaced_by pseudo-portname selector. (afb in r81475)
187
188    - Added progress output to port image conversion script.
189      (#30347, jmr in r81464)
190
191    - Now doing a better job of avoiding UID conflicts with non-local users
192      when creating the 'macports' user. (#30464, jmr in r81414, r81415) Also
193      improved Tiger compatibility in this area. (jmr in r81454, r81467)
194
195    - Fixed 'port selfupdate' exiting with non-zero status after installing a
196      new version of base. (jmr in r81371)
197
198    - Added --subports to options accepted by 'port info'. (jmr in r81234)
199
200    - Fixed incorrect info sometimes being added to PortIndex entries when
201      using subports. (#30463, jmr in r81361)
202
203    - Fixed descriptions not being shown for default variants. (jmr in r80971)
204
205    - Fixed 'port variants --index'. (jmr in r80969)
206
207Release 2.0.0 (2011-07-22 by jmr):
208
209    - Multiple ports can now be defined in one Portfile using the 'subport'
210      procedure. This reduces code duplication when several ports use very
211      similar code. (jmr in r78062)
212
213    - Privilege dropping is now on by default. The runtime user can be changed
214      when building from source but defaults to 'macports'; this user is
215      created at install time. (jmr in r79025)
216
217    - Fetching from some extremely slow or partially unresponsive servers
218      should now time out as expected. (raimue in r71038)
219
220    - The registry is now "vacuumed" (compacted/defragmented) after
221      uninstalling ports. (jmr in r70608)
222
223    - Downloaded archives are now checked for integrity using digital
224      signatures. Sync and selfupdate can also use a signed tarball. New
225      pubkeys.conf file allows configuring keys to trust.
226      (jmr in r68996, r79093)
227
228    - Added 'actinact' pseudo-portname that expands to installed ports with an
229      active version and at least one inactive version.
230      (#27666, jmr in r79421, based on patch from gmail.com:ww.galen)
231
232    - Added --size option for 'contents' action that makes it print the size
233      of each file. (#27245, jmr in r79365, based on patch from
234      gmail.com:ww.galen)
235
236    - Added 'space' action to show the disk space used by ports' active files.
237      (#27244, jmr in r79349, based on patch from gmail.com:ww.galen)
238
239    - Actions can be abbreviated to an unambiguous prefix of the full name.
240      (#27242, patch from gmail.com:ww.galen committed in r79259)
241
242    - Fixed error when activating ports whose version contains an underscore
243      followed by an integer and a dash. (#28084, jmr in r79167)
244
245    - Deactivating a port that has dependents no longer needs to be forced
246      when the dependents are all inactive. (#29505, jmr in r78086)
247
248    - New option 'add_users' has been added. Setting it will ensure that the
249      listed users are created before all operations that may require them to
250      exist. (#11563, jmr in r78660)
251
252    - 'port info --index' should be much faster and will work with the
253      'current' pseudo-port provided the port has been indexed.
254      (#13673, jmr in r78621)
255
256    - Relocation is explicitly disabled when building pkgs on 10.6, so Apple's
257      Installer won't attempt to overwrite other copies of the same software
258      not installed by MacPorts. (#25174, jmr in r78178)
259
260    - Non-Darwin platforms can once again build base against OpenSSL for
261      checksum support. (#26813, afb in r77865)
262
263    - It is now safe to set svn.post_args, rather than that option being
264      reserved for svn.url. (#27454, jmr in r73825)
265
266    - Variants specified when running 'port mpkg' are now set in the
267      dependencies as well. (#27231, jmr in r73303)
268
269    - Fixed various issues with privilege dropping.
270      (#26899, jmr in r69453 etc.)
271
272    - Trace mode no longer fails on 10.6. (#21582, jmr in r74318, r74369)
273
274    - Ports that create StartupItems (aka launchd plists) should now be
275      installable by unprivileged users. (#10879, jmr in r66700, r75143)
276
277    - Fixed incorrect output from 'port dependents' when using newer SQLite
278      versions. (#27506, patch from gmail.com:mmpestorich committed in r76827)
279
280    - The flat registry format is no longer available. Setting portdbformat to
281      'flat' in macports.conf will result in the sqlite registry being used.
282      (jmr in r77681)
283
284    - Port images are now stored as archives. Archive mode is now effectively
285      always on. Among other benefits, this fixes some bugs with the handling
286      of hard links installed by ports (e.g. #13601).
287
288      Direct mode is no longer available. Existing port image directories, and
289      installed files for direct mode, will be converted to archives when
290      upgrading.
291
292      (#19458, branch by blb, merged by jmr in r77511)
293
294    - master_site_local, patch_site_local, and archive_site_local can be set
295      in macports.conf, with the same effects as the corresponding environment
296      variables. (jmr in r74924)
297
298    - Added 'logfile' action that prints the path to a port's log file.
299      (jmr in r74655)
300
301    - Computing large dependency trees that contain the same port(s) multiple
302      times should be considerably faster. (jmr in r73133)
303
304    - New configure.compiler options: macports-gcc-4.6, macports-llvm-gcc-4.2,
305      macports-clang (jmr in r71487; mfeiri in r72936, r72937)
306
307    - Add '-n' option to reinplace (#26406, ryandesign in r73227)
308
309    - Add new ccache_dir and ccache_size options, default path is
310      ${portdbpath}/build/.ccache and a size of 2 GB.
311      (raimue in r71604, r71606)
312
313    - Add 'system -W path' which changes to the given directory before
314      executing the command.
315      (raimue in r71380, r71389)
316
317    - Add -w to build.cmd and destroot.cmd if using gnumake
318      (raimue in r71370)
319
320    - Add livecheck.ignore_sslcert; setting fetch.ignore_sslcert does no
321      longer apply to livecheck. distcheck now respects fetch.ignore_sslcert.
322      (#17063, raimue in r70975, r70979, r70982)
323
324    - Add SHA256 checksums in addition to MD5, SHA1 and RIPEMD160.
325      (afb in r57888, r57913; snc in r68955)
326
327    - Add @pkgdep lines to archives, with build-time dependencies.
328      (afb in r76919)
329
330Release 1.9.2 (2010-11-07 by jmr):
331
332    - Added more locking to avoid TOCTOU errors when running multiple port(1)
333      instances (#19935, jmr in r70174)
334
335    - Fixed -q not suppressing output from 'port lint' (#25880, jmr in r70163)
336
337    - Added a helpful message when there is a checksum mismatch and the
338      distfile appears to incorrectly be a HTML document (#25128,
339      ryandesign/jmr in r70143)
340
341    - Now checking early on if there are sufficient privileges to install,
342      and failing before building anything if not (#25671, jmr in r70135)
343
344    - Avoided possible failure when the -u option is used when upgrading a
345      port that is marked as being replaced by another (jmr in r69022)
346
347    - Using the platform-specific PortIndex when syncing using a daily tarball
348      (jmr in r68786)
349
350    - Fixed failures when fetch target is run without root privileges and the
351      port is then installed with them (#25418, #25937; jmr in r69334, r70271)
352
353    - Fixed upgrading ports where the new version differs from the old version
354      only in epoch (jmr in r69436)
355
356    - Fixed [un]setrequested when using the flat registry format
357      (#26352, jmr in r69387)
358
359    - Fixed checking for conflicting ports before installation
360      (#25386, jmr in r69105)
361
362    - Now gracefully handling distfiles that use a tag that is not
363      associated with any sites (#25332, jmr in r68965)
364
365    - Fixed running 'port deps' on multiple ports, and changed its output
366      format back to how it was in 1.8 (#25324, jmr in r68950)
367
368    - Fixed premature privilege dropping (#25331, jmr in r68952)
369
370Release 1.9.1 (2010-06-18 by jmr):
371    - Fixed a couple of problems with new 1.9 features when using the flat
372      registry format (jmr in r68910, r68913)
373
374    - Ports using the replaced_by option will once again be deactivated when
375      an upgrade is performed on them (#25270, jmr in r68872)
376
377    - Fixed the possibility of some empty directories being left behind when
378      a port is deactivated (#25268, jmr in r68864)
379
380    - Fixed failure to detect conflicts with files that are not provided by
381      a port before activation starts (#25255, jmr in r68849)
382
383    - Fixed problems with distfile names containing spaces (#25245, #25246;
384      jmr in r68816, r68817)
385
386    - Fixed a problem with uninstall when using direct mode, and started
387      running pre/post activate and deactivate procedures when installing and
388      uninstalling in direct mode, respectively (#11562, jmr in r68697)
389
390    - fixed a crasher that affected Tiger (#25194, jmr in r68675, r68680,
391      r68691)
392
393Release 1.9.0 (2010-06-08 by jmr):
394
395    - It is no longer possible to use include statements in Portfiles
396      (raimue in r68206)
397
398    - Command line options can be abbreviated if unambiguous
399      (raimue in r66837)
400
401    - Added a new variable 'os.subplatform'. When os.platform is darwin, the
402      subplatform is either 'macosx' or 'puredarwin'.
403
404    - 'platform' no longer creates a variant, instead it executes the code in
405      the body immediately if the current platform matches the one specified.
406
407    - Using a Portfile with a modification date in the future now causes an
408      informative error early on, instead of just discarding the workdir at
409      the start of every phase. (#24717, raimue in r65246)
410
411    - Fetching from servers that require a cookie to be set now works.
412      (#24584, raimue in r66785)
413
414    - Fixed an error when everything is deleted from the patchfiles list.
415      (#24178, raimue in r65243)
416
417    - Added 'license:' pseudo-port selector. (#24123, perry in r65033)
418
419    - Added new fetch.type 'bzr'. (#23436, perry in r65096)
420
421    - Added 'rdeps' and 'rdependents' actions, recursive versions of 'deps'
422      and 'dependents' respectively. Also added 'depof:', 'rdepof:',
423      'dependentof:' and 'rdependentof:' pseudo-port selectors, for specifying
424      the ports that are dependencies or dependents of the given port.
425      (#22346, jmr in r65858/r66198)
426
427    - Updated the description of the search action in the port(1) man page.
428      (#23749, jmr in r66670)
429
430    - Dry-run now uses /dev/null as the statefile, which prevents a couple of
431      problems involving locking and variant checks.
432      (#21794, #21962; jmr in r66921)
433
434    - The list of dependencies to be installed is now displayed immediately
435      after computing them. (#21540, jmr in r66321)
436
437    - The quick index is now reloaded after syncing in interactive mode, which
438      prevents errors due to it not matching the updated PortIndex.
439      (#20874, jmr in r66319, refinement of patch from carrel.org:edward)
440
441    - The architectures of dependencies are checked when installing a port. If
442      a dependency does not provide the required arch(s), it is rebuilt with
443      +universal if that is possible and will help, otherwise the install fails
444      and an error message explains why. (#20728, jmr in r65087)
445
446    - New supported_archs option allows ports to indicate which architectures
447      they can be built for. The default values of configure.build_arch and
448      configure.universal_archs change based on this list. Set this to
449      'noarch' if a port installs only architecture-independent files.
450      (#20739, jmr in r64372/r64945)
451
452    - Declaring a variant that requires one or more other variants will now
453      correctly set the required variants, so they can be checked with
454      variant_isset. (#19224, jmr in r66642)
455
456    - 'port outdated' now indicates the reason why a port that appears to have
457      the same version as that in the tree is considered outdated. Possible
458      reasons are that the epoch is higher, or the installed version was built
459      on a different OS version. (#19138, jmr in r64960)
460
461    - Distfile names are now percent-escaped in the download URLs when needed.
462      (#18736, jmr in r66794)
463
464    - buildnicevalue is now applied to configure and destroot commands, and to
465      build commands with unusual names. (#18304, raimue in r65076/r65808)
466
467    - Removed hardcoded /opt/local prefix from the base dmg resources.
468      (#17633, jmr in r66776)
469
470    - Fixed an error that occurred when archive mode was enabled but
471      ${prefix}/var/macports/packages did not exist. (#17579, jmr in r66775)
472
473    - Syncing rsync sources now tries to get a platform-specific version of
474      the PortIndex from the server, and skips this if the local copy is less
475      than a day old. All sync methods now update the PortIndex at the end.
476      (#17157, jmr in r66846/r67207)
477
478    - portindex(1) now skips parsing Portfiles whose modification time is
479      older than the current PortIndex, instead reusing the existing entry.
480      (#16235, jmr in r66845)
481
482    - Added a 'requested' flag to the registry that indicates which ports were
483      installed explicitly (as opposed to as a dependency of something else).
484      This enables the new 'requested', 'unrequested' and 'leaves' pseudo-
485      ports, as well as the --follow-dependencies option for uninstall.
486      The setrequested and unsetrequested actions will set and clear the flag,
487      respectively.
488      (#15260, jmr in r64517, r64663, r65546, r66037, r66200, r66215)
489
490    - The macports1.0 directory is now installed to
491      ${prefix}/share/macports/Tcl rather than /Library/Tcl. A symlink will be
492      installed in the old location if there is nothing there already, so
493      'package require macports' will still work in tclsh.
494      (#12943, jmr in r65055)
495
496    - Added warning and error messags when Xcode is old enough to cause
497      problems or too old to use at all, respectively. (#12794, jmr in r66771)
498
499    - Removed the rather outdated copy of sqlite3 from the source tree, made
500      the sqlite3 directory configurable, and added defaults for non-darwin
501      platforms. (#12231, jmr in r64358/r64363)
502
503    - There is a new 'archivefetch' target which is run before unarchive when
504      archive mode is enabled, and attempts to download the archive from a
505      server. There are currently no sites configured to download from (these
506      are stored in the ports tree like the mirror sites used for fetch), but
507      you can set ARCHIVE_SITE_LOCAL in the environment. Note that there is no
508      integrity checking for archives yet. (#8571, jmr in r64816)
509
510    - Now recording negative variants in the registry, which stops deselected
511      variants from being reactivated on upgrade due to default_variants or
512      variants.conf settings. (#2377, jmr in r64533)
513
514    - Added support for pre- and post- procedures for the activate, deactivate
515      and uninstall targets. This feature requires portdbformat sqlite. There
516      was limited support for pre- and post-activate previously, but the
517      procedures were only run when installing the port, not when activating
518      an inactive version. (#1068, #4228, #18273; jmr in r64638/r64639)
519
520    - Integrated the sqlite-based registry2.0 code. The portdbformat variable
521      in macports.conf can be set to 'sqlite' to enable it. Existing flat
522      receipts will be converted the first time port(1) is run with sufficient
523      privileges. Original code by sfiera, fixed and integrated by jmr in
524      r63398 and following. The new format lacks a number of problems that the
525      old one suffers from, including #13054 (dependencies from old port
526      versions stick around across upgrades) and #14123 (files whose paths
527      differ only in case are left behind when uninstalling).
528
529    - Fixed file list in +CONTENTS file in archives. (#21864, jmr in r59882)
530
531    - Fixed a few issues reported with building MacPorts on Linux. (#22716)
532
533    - Upgrade will now always choose the port that is active when following
534      dependencies that could be satisfied by more than one port and more than
535      one of these is installed, instead of choosing the one actually named in
536      the depspec. (#23921, jmr in r60883)
537
538    - Extracting from a disk image ("use_dmg yes") no longer fails when there
539      is a space in $worksrcdir. (#23456, raimue in r67089)
540
541    - Added a configure.sdkroot option which can be used to build against a
542      Mac OS X SDK. It is empty by default unless the value of
543      macosx_deployment_target is not the current OS version, or the universal
544      variant is set and the current platform is PowerPC Tiger. It is also
545      possible to set macosx_deployment_target globally in macports.conf now,
546      but this is unsupported. (#19875, jmr in r66924)
547
548    - Add "fs-traverse -tails" which only returns the part following the
549      specified directory (#21873, raimue in r65785)
550
551    - Allow gcc45 port to be used in configure.compiler (ryandesign in r62223)
552
553    - svn checkouts now use peg revisions instead of operative revisions,
554      so they'll continue to work if a repository gets reorganized
555      (#20777, ryandesign in r60573)
556
557    - Print the location of the log file when a target fails (jmr in r60769)
558
559    - Use CommonCrypto/CommonDigest instead of OpenSSL libcrypto.
560      (toby in r58131, jberry in r59715)
561
562    - New "patch.type gnu" for GNU patch, similar to "build.type gnu"
563      for GNU make. Only makes a difference for BSD patch and BSD make.
564      (afb in r58020)
565
566    - Updated the FreeBSD package (ObjC/Foundation is now optional).
567      (afb in r57889)
568
569    - Don't use "make -j1" for build.jobs=1, but prefer "make" instead.
570      (afb in r57998)
571
572    - Add new "use_xz yes" port option to allow distfiles in xz format.
573      (afb in r57827)
574
575    - Archive mode now uses build_arch in archive names rather than os.arch.
576      (snc in r58977)
577
578    - Add new log command and keeping of debug output for easy access
579      after port has run (GSoC 2009 logging project by enl, merged in r60372)
580
581    - Some of the build_arch flags now appear in LDFLAGS as well, fixing
582      several ports when building for a different architecture (jeremyhu in
583      r60662, jmr in r60680)
584
585    - Fixed 'merge' proc for paths with spaces, and for symlinks on Snow
586      Leopard, and added an error message for when 'merge' is not called
587      correctly (#21852, ryandesign in r58776, r58777, r58778)
588
589Release 1.8.2 (2010-01-01 by jmr):
590
591    - Fixed 'port load' for non-root installations (#21713, jmr in r60774)
592
593    - Fixed a bug that could cause port to hit the open file limit
594      (#22959, jmr in r61770)
595
596    - Fixed an error when installing from source or selfupdating on Tiger with
597      an svn-based ports tree (#20760, jmr in r61302)
598
599    - Fixed an error when selfupdating as root with a prefix that is not owned
600      by root (#21010, jmr in r60798)
601
602    - Stopped uninstall from failing when files in the port image have already
603      been deleted (#22001, jmr in r59318, r59654)
604
605    - Stopped printing command output multiple times on failure (#21084,
606      jmr in r60770)
607
608    - Started showing bug reporting instructions on failure (jmr in r60770)
609
610    - Fixed a bug where 'port dmg' could create too small an image and run out
611      of space (#22404, jmr in r60260)
612
613    - Fixed a bug where reinplace could fail when running port without root
614      privileges (#20896, jmr in r59597)
615
616    - Started setting our own umask since Snow Leopard makes us inherit
617      the user's even when using sudo (#21389, jmr in r59585)
618
619Release 1.8.1 (2009-09-28 by jmr):
620
621    - Installer error messages now display properly even from the Snow Leopard
622      MacPorts dmg. (jmr in r56448)
623
624    - 'fetch.type svn' no longer requires the installation of the subversion
625      port as of Snow Leopard. (toby in r56160; raimue in r56162)
626
627    - Updated manpages and 'port help' output (ryandesign in r56472, r56473,
628      r56474; blb in r56666, r57048, r57131)
629
630    - Fixed syncing using the daily tarball. (#21034, toby in r56889)
631
632    - Fixed 'port load' (#21128, raimue in r57055)
633
634    - Improved error message when an expression on the command line does not
635      match any ports (jmr in r57026)
636
637    - Stopped recording the completion of the install phase in the
638      statefile, which led to errors if the port was uninstalled but the work
639      dir was not cleaned, and the port was then installed again.
640      (jmr/raimue in r57801, 57820)
641
642Release 1.8.0 (2009-08-28 by jmr):
643    - There is now a 'build_arch' variable, available in portfiles and
644      configurable in macports.conf, which sets the CPU architecture that
645      ports should be compiled for (when not building universal). Its default
646      is the same as that of the Apple-supplied /usr/bin/gcc.
647      (#19874, jmr in r53217,r53386,r53420,r53494,r53860,r54236)
648
649    - MacPorts base now works on and has appropriate default settings for
650      Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. (#19874, toby/mww/jkh in r38271,r40060,
651      r40836,r43976,r52397)
652     
653    - MacPorts now requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later. (Panther is not
654      just "unsupported", it really won't work.)
655
656    - The universal_sysroot and universal_target keys have been removed from
657      macports.conf. These settings are now handled automatically.
658      (toby in r52324)
659
660    - Added a 'replaced_by' portfile option. This causes upgrade to deactivate
661      the current port and install the port specified by this option. This
662      also allows ports to be renamed. Upgrade accepts a --no-replace option
663      which disables this behaviour. (#20157, jmr in r54378)
664
665    - The upgrade action now accepts --force and --enforce-variants options.
666      The former causes ports to be rebuilt even if they are not outdated, and
667      the global -f option no longer has this effect (it had too many effects
668      already). The latter causes ports to be rebuilt if the requested
669      variants do not match those installed (even if they are not outdated).
670      (#20156, jmr in r54376)
671
672    - Dependencies can be satisfied by ports that are installed but not
673      available in the ports tree (useful for testing uncommitted ports).
674      (jmr in r52075, r52160)
675
676    - Ports that are installed but not available in the ports tree no longer
677      cause an error when running commands like 'port clean installed'. They
678      are skipped and a warning is printed. (#19253, jmr in r50865)
679
680    - Selfupdate no longer disables readline support unless readline is found
681      in /usr/local, which has historically caused failures.
682      (#19035, jmr in r50868)
683
684    - Uninstalling a port that is not installed now produces an informational
685      message rather than an error. (#18984, jmr in r53709)
686
687    - Added a 'conflicts' portfile option. Conflicting ports will be detected
688      during dependency calculation. (#18794, blb/jmr in r51525)
689
690    - 'port selfupdate' now explicitly states precisely what it does. (#18512)
691
692    - Operating system and architecture information is now shown in debug
693      output. (#18435, raimue in r46669)
694
695    - Fixed a bug that could break some symlinks to man pages. (#18302)
696
697    - Switched to a more efficient algorithm for looking up port information
698      in the index, which makes many operations faster.
699      (#18259, jmr/blb in r47110)
700
701    - MacPorts base now tries to avoid using commands that come from ports, so
702      that a broken port can't break the base code. (#18149)
703
704    - Deleting all the contents of a portfile option no longer unsets the
705      option entirely. (#17865, toby in r44901)
706
707    - Removed the code that upgrades from the old DarwinPorts filesystem
708      layout. Trying to upgrade to 1.8.0+ from a version older than 1.5.0 will
709      produce an error message saying you need to install 1.7.1 first.
710      (#17619, jmr in r53260)
711
712    - port(1) now reports its version as dotted-decimal rather than floating
713      point. (#17420)
714
715    - Dependencies are now always obtained by parsing the Portfile and not
716      from the PortIndex, since the latter can't provide expanded variables
717      like $prefix which may be used in path: depspecs. (#17182)
718
719    - Newline characters in long_description can no longer cause receipt
720      corruption. (#16619, blb in r50663)
721
722    - Now unlocking the filemap when it is not in use. This allows e.g.
723      'port contents' to be run while another port instance is performing
724      installs. Note that running more than one simultaneous port instance
725      that will modify the registry can easily fail, though hopefully
726      without corrupting anything. (#16246, jmr in r51133)
727
728    - Removed some irrelevant debug output that was being printed when a port
729      failed. (#16203, jmr in r53706)
730
731    - Added new depends_fetch and depends_extract options, for dependencies
732      that are needed to fetch or extract the port, respectively.
733      (#15161, jmr in r51780)
734
735    - Packages (including the one for MacPorts base) now correctly indicate
736      that they can only be installed on the root volume.
737      (#14809, jmr in r53250)
738
739    - Using an alternative fetch or extract type now adds appropriate
740      dependencies automatically, e.g. 'use_zip yes' adds a dep on unzip, and
741      'fetch.type svn' adds a dep on subversion. (#13981, jmr in r43782)
742
743    - port(1) should now exit with an appropriate status code when an error is
744      encountered. Use the -p option to continue despite errors.
745      (#13918, jmr in r53704)
746
747    - Proxy information can now be obtained from System Preferences and from
748      macports.conf. The older method using environment variables no longer
749      works out of the box on Leopard due to changes that Apple made to the
750      default /etc/sudoers. (#13158, blb in r47194)
751
752    - Improved handling of malformed variant definitions.
753      (#12596, jmr in r50719, r50721)
754
755    - Cope a little better with missing receipt files. (#19540, jmr in r51138)
756
757    - Fixed a major memory leak in the filemap code.
758      (#12022, pguyot in r51419)
759
760    - Improved the logic for determining whether phases can be skipped. This
761      fixes the specific problems of being unable to build packages of ports
762      that are installed, port not running specific phases (e.g. build)
763      when told to if the port is installed, and inactive dependencies being
764      rebuilt instead of simply activated. (#10881, #16260, jmr in r50490)
765
766    - When archive mode is enabled, ports will no longer be rebuilt if an
767      archive is available. (#10785, jmr in r50416)
768
769    - Activating a port will now first deactivate any other version of the
770      same port that is already active. (#10571, jmr in r53711)
771
772    - Added a 'license' portfile option, which is displayed in 'port info'
773      output. (#7493, jmr in r50801)
774
775    - port lint recognizes new top-level category php (#19329, ryandesign)
776
777    - Do not print header lines when the quiet option -q is set
778      (raimue in r48558)
779
780    - svn.tag is deprecated, use svn.revision instead (raimue in r48222-48223)
781
782    - port -i option has been removed (blb in r48218)
783
784    - ui_warn logs to stderr instead of stdout (raimue in r48217)
785
786    - Remove --pretend option for port selfupdate, use global dry-run option
787      instead (raimue in r48125)
788
789    - port(1) option -y for dry-run (#11892, gwhitney/jmr in r43726)
790
791    - New pseudo-port 'obsolete' to identify ports which are installed but no
792      longer in the PortIndex (raimue in r47253)
793
794    - MacPorts can now perform fetch, extract, patch, configure and build in a
795      user rather than system owned location. By default, this is
796      ~/.macports/opt. This allows MacPorts to do all but the install of the
797      port without root privileges. (gsoc08-privileges)
798
799    - MacPorts can now automatically drop privileges so as to avoid running as
800      root whenever possible. To enable this, pass the desired user to run as
801      to configure with the --with-macports-user option. (gsoc08-privileges)
802
803    - The Portfile format has a number of new boolean attributes to indicate
804      when an action should or should not be run with root privileges:
805      'patch.asroot', 'build.asroot', 'configure.asroot', 'destroot.asroot',
806      and 'install.asroot'. The default for all is "no". If the prefix folder
807      (by default /opt/local) is not writable, MacPorts will attempt to
808      elevate privileges to root for the install phase. (gsoc08-privileges)
809
810    - A "make group" command has been added to the Makefile and a
811      "--with-shared-directory" switch to the configure script. Running "make
812      group" will create a macports group. "--with-shared-directory" will let
813      let the group specified by "--with-install-group" have full read write
814      access to the /opt/local hierarchy. This will allow users who are
815      members of the new macports group to have full write permissions to
816      /opt/local and its subfolders, and hence to install ports which only
817      affect that hierarchy without requiring root privileges.
818      (gsoc08-privileges)
819
820    - A switch called "--with-no-root-privileges" has been added for use by
821      user installing MacPorts for their own use only. An example configure
822      command would be "./configure
823      --prefix=/Users/{your-user-name-here}/.macports/opt
824      --with-no-root-privileges" (gsoc08-privileges)
825
826    - Add several new options to port search, looks in name and description by
827      default (#15434, raimue)
828
829    - Add xpkg package type, xar-based format with XML. (afb)
830
831    - Split portpkg creation out from portsubmit phase. (afb)
832
833    - Make dependencies displayed in port info respect variants
834      specified in variants.conf; collapse port deps to be an alias
835      for port info with appropriate flags. Note this changes output
836      format of port deps somewhat.  (#11891, gwhitney in r44340)
837
838    - Make dependencies in port upgrade respect variants as specified
839      (in order of precedence) on command line, latest installed
840      version, or variants.conf .  (#8221, gwhitney in r44362)
841
842    - Add select action, which integrates *_select tools into port.
843      (#17477, perry)
844
845    - The variants action additionally shows default variants, conflicting
846      variants and variants' dependencies. (#14178, #15628, perry)
847
848    - Implicit variants (e.g., darwin) can no longer be explicitly
849      set/unset. (#12563, perry in r46938, jmr in r53371)
850
851Release 1.7.1 (2009-03-28 by raimue):
852    - Trailing slashes are stripped from the prefix passed to configure, which
853      prevents incorrect mtree violation warnings. (#13789)
854
855    - Fix freshmeat-based livecheck (#18887)
856
857    - Fix issue on direct-mode installs where checking for installed ports
858      wasn't properly looking (it only matched for revision 0 and no
859      variants) (#17762)
860
861    - Add new "use_7z yes" port option to allow distfiles in 7z format
862      (#18521, ryandesign)
863
864    - port lint no longer requires variable master_sites if the port has no
865      distfiles (#18479, ryandesign)
866
867    - Upgrade will no longer accept ports that are not installed (but it still
868      installs new ports as dependencies if needed). In particular, this means
869      that "port upgrade all" will no longer proceed to install every
870      available port. (jmr in r46052)
871
872    - Add mkdtemp Tcl command to create temporary directories. (#17181, perry)
873
874    - Add 'apple-gcc-4.2' option to configure.compiler (#18426, ryandesign)
875
876    - Create ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} in destroot
877      automatically (r45614, raimue)
878
879    - Make the postflight procedure a bit smarter about which login files
880      to update for bash and tcsh (#17588)
881
882    - Add error messages to package installers when the wrong OS package
883      is being installed (#13141)
884
885Release 1.7.0 (2008-12-13 by blb):
886    - Global variant descriptions using variant_descriptions.conf in the new
887      resources directory in the ports tree (#14482, raimue)
888
889    - Move port resources into the ports tree (#14553, raimue and blb)
890
891    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
892
893    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
894
895    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
896
897    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
898      --nitpick is used (#14799)
899
900    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
901
902    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
903
904    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
905      phases (#11897)
906
907    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
908      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
909
910    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
911      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
912      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
913      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
914
915    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
916      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
917      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
918      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
919      in r38683)
920
921    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
922
923    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
924      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
925      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
926
927    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
928      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
929      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
930      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, r37621)
931
932    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
933      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
934      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
935      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
936
937    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
938      (#15577, afb in r37501)
939
940    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
941
942    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
943      running (raimue)
944
945    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
946      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
947      jmr in r37217, r37255)
948
949    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
950      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
951      r37121)
952
953    - Stopped 'port -R upgrade' from processing more ports than it should, and
954      from processing ports multiple times. (#10827, jmr in r37046)
955
956    - Don't include build.nice and build.jobs in destroot.cmd (#15295)
957
958    - The default universal variant is no longer added when we know it won't
959      work. (#12170, jmr in r36764)
960
961    - During upgrade, if the latest installed version of a port is not active,
962      the currently active version (if any) is now deactivated before trying
963      to activate the latest version. (#12013, jmr in r36762)
964
965    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is
966      inactive and there is at least one other version of the same port
967      installed (#11501, jmr in r36747)
968
969    - Duplicate entries can no longer build up in the dependency map (#8763,
970      jmr in r36745)
971
972    - In image mode, dependencies are no longer treated as being satisfied
973      when the satisfying port is not active (#7361, jmr in r36735)
974
975    - Fixed a bug where upgrade could create too many nested subdirectories
976      in distpath, archive.destpath and unarchive.srcpath (#11971, jmr in
977      r36679, r36687, r36688)
978
979    - Declaring a dependency on a nonexistent port now always causes an error
980      (#10768, jmr in r36648)
981
982    - Explicitly use unsetenv(3) on all environment variables (#13930, #16010,
983      #16233)
984
985    - Make the included tclthread compile on Leopard if configured (#13495)
986
987    - Allow distfiles to be disk images with "use_dmg yes" port option (#13509,
988      ryandesign in r36708)
989
990    - ruby.setup now takes a type 'fetch' to just fetch/extract (eridius in r35773)
991
992    - Fetch now prefers mirrors with lower ping times (#14891, jmr in r35748,
993      r35806, r35808)
994
995    - Fetching of daily snapshot tarballs of the ports tree as an alternative to rsync
996      (raimue in r35647, r35648)
997
998    - port uninstall now takes --follow-dependents to uninstall all dependents
999      (#14637, eridius/raimue in r34977, r35042, r36160)
1000
1001    - New fetch.type git (#14232, eridius in r34875)
1002
1003    - fixed "port mdmg" getting block size wrong for the disk image (#13968, afb in r34844)
1004
1005    - always set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, to avoid bugs with older glibtool (afb in r34541)
1006
1007    - port lint now checks all dependencies so that the ports actually exist (#14380)
1008
1009    - added target_state to avoid the need for privileges for lint/livecheck (#13458)
1010
1011    - Overhauled output for port info/deps/dependents/search (raimue in
1012      r34354, r34371, r34391, r34395, r34402, r34420)
1013
1014    - Revert the default +universal MDT/SDK to 10.4/10.4u on Tiger and 10.5/10.5 on Leopard
1015
1016    - port lint shouldn't require variable master_sites for fetch.type != standard (#14377)
1017
1018    - Add "tcldoc" documentation comments and "tcldox" Doxyfile for doxygen (#12048)
1019
1020    - Add --pretend and --nosync flags to selfupdate (raimue in r33938, r33939,
1021      r33940, r33941)
1022
1023    - Work around autoconf X11 detection bugs on darwin (afb in r33717)
1024
1025    - Fix bugs with X11 lib detection on Leopard (#14089, afb in r33716)
1026
1027    - Add configure.{optflags,m32,m64,march,mtune} (afb in r33503, r33599)
1028
1029    - Add applications_dir and frameworks_dir configuration (r33499, r33722)
1030
1031    - Remove some hardcoded paths (such as /usr/X11R6, /usr/bin/install) (afb in r33501, r33619, r33620)
1032
1033    - Add configure.{universal_target,universal_sysroot,universal_archs} (afb in r33478).
1034
1035    - Change default +universal platform back to: 10.4/10.4u.sdk/i386 ppc (r33087, r33107).
1036
1037    - Add `port platform` info action that outputs current platform (#12302, afb in r32724).
1038
1039    - Enable 64 bit environment, ppc64 x86_64, for all +universal builds (mww in r32194).
1040
1041    - Add 'merge' function for merging multiple (single arch) destroots into one (universal)
1042      destroot (mww in r31954).
1043
1044    - If checksum is mismatched, and in verbose mode, present a corrected pre-fabricated checksum statement
1045      to make it easy to update a port (jberry in r32441).
1046
1047    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_prefix"" runtime error on Panther
1048      (eridius in r32525).
1049
1050    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_channels"" runtime error on Panther
1051      (eridius in r32514).
1052
1053    - "port lint" now recognizes non-canonical modelines (afb in r32480).
1054
1055    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
1056
1057    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
1058      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_version (jmpp in r32353).
1059
1060    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents
1061      (jmpp in r32336).
1062
1063    - Fixed a Panther build failure due to missing sqlite headers (jmpp in r32212).
1064
1065    - Fixed a build failure by passing the base/src/cregistry/cregistry.a archive through ranlib (jmpp in r32105).
1066
1067
1068Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
1069
1070    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
1071      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
1072      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
1073      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
1074
1075    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
1076      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
1077
1078    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
1079
1080    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
1081      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
1082
1083    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
1084      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
1085      (#10651, jberry in r31139, r31140).
1086
1087    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
1088      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
1089      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
1090      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).
1091
1092    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
1093
1094    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
1095      multiple files (mww in r31028)
1096
1097    - add optional configure.pipe output (afb in r29604 & r30824)
1098
1099    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)
1100

1102
1103    - Auto-mode for number of parallel build threads (if number of jobs is set to "0") (r30739)
1104
1105    - Add option use_parallel_build [yes|no] to declare if a port can be built in parallel (r30714).
1106
1107    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).
1108
1109    - Display warnings when using old versions of Mac OS X and Xcode Tools
1110      (#12794, afb in r30338 & r30477)
1111
1112    - Remove configure.macosx_deployment_target, add global macosx_deployment_target
1113      (eridius in r30396).
1114
1115    - add support for LZMA compression, for making .tlz archives (afb in r30307)
1116
1117    - add configure.[perl|python|ruby] for interpreters, .install for avoiding breakage
1118      due to coreutils, .libs
1119
1120    - added startupitem.netchange boolean flag (#12931, N_Ox in r30086).
1121
1122    - added generic GNU livecheck (N_Ox in r29812).
1123
1124    - fixed bug where all .mpkg packages were missing their welcome page (afb in r29517)
1125
1126    - better defaults for implicit ui_channels behaviour (eridius in r29498).
1127
1128    - prevent creating PKG packages with /etc or /var or /tmp (#2102, afb in r29445)
1129
1130    - add optional configure.ccache and configure.distcc filters (#5390, afb in r29438)
1131
1132    - Explicitly sort fs-traverse so it behaves predictably on Linux systems
1133      (#12622, eridius in r29412).
1134
1135    - add configure.objc/objcflags for Objective-C
1136
1137    - add optional build.nice (0) and build.jobs (1) modifiers (afb in r28634 & r28673)
1138
1139    - make tclobjc1.0 compile with GNUstep and NXConstantString class (afb in r28668)
1140
1141    - fix bsdmake/gnumake defaults for FreeBSD and Linux platforms (afb in r28660)
1142
1143    - port lint command, for Portfile verification (#463, afb in r28170)
1144
1145    - add configure.macosx_deployment_target for configure flags
1146
1147    - add configure.javac/classpath for Java
1148
1149    - add configure.fflags/fcflags/f90flags for Fortran flags
1150
1151    - Mark "python" group code as deprecated
1152
1153    - Add group code for Python 3.0
1154
1155    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
1156
1157    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
1158      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
1159
1160    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
1161
1162    - Chris Pickel's GSoC2007 work: registry2.0 & cregistry (mainly r27518 & r27520)
1163
1164    - Eugene Pimenov's GSoC2007 work: Trace lib on unix sockets (r26682).
1165
1166    - Elias Pipping's GSoC2007 work: merge.rb on his personal /users/pipping svn dir.
1167
1168
1169Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
1170
1171    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
1172      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
1173      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
1174
1175
1176Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
1177
1178    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
1179      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
1180
1181    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
1182      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
1183
1184    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
1185
1186    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
1187      (mww in r27199).
1188
1189    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
1190
1191    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
1192
1193    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
1194
1195    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
1196      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
1197
1198    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
1199
1200    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
1201
1202    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
1203
1204
1205Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
1206
1207    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
1208      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
1209      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
1210      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
1211      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
1212
1213    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
1214
1215    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
1216
1217    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
1218      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
1219      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
1220      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
1221      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
1222
1223    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
1224
1225    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
1226      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
1227
1228    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
1229
1230    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
1231      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
1232
1233    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
1234      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
1235      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
1236      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
1237      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
1238      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
1239
1240    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
1241
1242    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
1243
1244    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
1245
1246    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
1247      to detect problems between required and negated variants
1248      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
1249
1250    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
1251      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
1252      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
1253      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
1254
1255    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
1256      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
1257
1258    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
1259      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
1260      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
1261
1262    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
1263      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
1264         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
1265         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
1266      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
1267      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
1268      (jberry r25795).
1269
1270    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
1271
1272    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
1273      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
1274      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
1275
1276    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
1277      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
1278
1279    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
1280      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
1281
1282    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
1283      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
1284      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
1285      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
1286      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
1287      (boeyms in r25310)
1288
1289Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
1290
1291    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
1292
1293Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
1294
1295    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
1296
1297    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
1298      This allows information about variants to be displayed (e.g. dependencies).
1299      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
1300      (eridius r25255).
1301
1302    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
1303
1304    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
1305      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
1306      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
1307
1308    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
1309      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
1310
1311    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
1312      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
1313      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
1314      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
1315      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
1316      (boeyms r25110)
1317
1318    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
1319      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
1320      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
1321      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
1322
1323    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
1324
1325    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
1326      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
1327
1328    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
1329      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
1330
1331    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
1332
1333    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
1334      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
1335
1336    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
1337      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
1338      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
1339      (jberry r25146)
1340
1341    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
1342         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
1343         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
1344         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
1345           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
1346           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
1347
1348        Example:
1349
1350            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
1351                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
1352            }
1353
1354        (jberry r25147)
1355
1356    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
1357      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
1358
1359
1360Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
1361
1362    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
1363      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
1364      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
1365      it differently.
1366
1367    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
1368      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
1369      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
1370      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
1371      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
1372
1373    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
1374      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
1375      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
1376
1377    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
1378
1379    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
1380
1381    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
1382      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
1383
1384    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
1385
1386    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
1387
1388    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
1389      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
1390      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
1391
1392    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
1393      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
1394
1395    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
1396      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
1397
1398    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
1399      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
1400
1401    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
1402
1403    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
1404      (pguyot r24273).
1405
1406    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
1407      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
1408      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
1409
1410    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
1411      This work is in progress. (jberry)
1412       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
1413       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
1414         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
1415
1416    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
1417      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
1418
1419    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
1420      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
1421
1422    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
1423      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
1424
1425    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
1426
1427    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
1428
1429Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
1430
1431    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
1432      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
1433      (jberry r24151).
1434
1435    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
1436      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
1437      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
1438      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
1439      (pipping r24148).
1440
1441Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
1442
1443    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
1444      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
1445
1446    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
1447      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
1448
1449    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
1450      for submitter information.
1451      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
1452        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
1453        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
1454            - PORTSRC
1455            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
1456            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
1457          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
1458       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
1459
1460    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
1461      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
1462
1463    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
1464      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
1465      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
1466      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1467
1468    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1469
1470    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
1471      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
1472
1473Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
1474
1475    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
1476      (pipping in r23343).
1477
1478    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
1479      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
1480
1481    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
1482      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
1483      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
1484
1485    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
1486      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
1487
1488    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
1489      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
1490      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
1491
1492    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
1493
1494    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
1495      r22313).
1496
1497    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
1498      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
1499      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
1500      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
1501
1502    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
1503      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
1504
1505    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
1506      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
1507
1508    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
1509      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
1510
1511    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
1512      r23967)
1513
1514
1515Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
1516
1517    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
1518      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
1519
1520    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
1521
1522    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
1523      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
1524
1525    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
1526
1527    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
1528
1529    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
1530      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
1531
1532    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
1533
1534    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
1535
1536    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
1537      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
1538
1539    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
1540      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
1541
1542    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
1543      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
1544      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
1545
1546    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
1547
1548    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
1549      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
1550
1551    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
1552      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
1553
1554    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
1555      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
1556
1557    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
1558
1559    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
1560
1561    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
1562      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
1563
1564    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
1565
1566    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
1567
1568    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
1569
1570    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
1571      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
1572
1573    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
1574      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
1575
1576    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
1577
1578    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
1579
1580
1581Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
1582
1583    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
1584      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
1585
1586    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
1587
1588    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
1589      code. (pguyot)
1590
1591    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
1592      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
1593
1594    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
1595      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
1596
1597    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
1598      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
1599      /usr/local. (pguyot)
1600
1601    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
1602
1603    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
1604      (josh_root, blb)
1605
1606    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
1607      are modified. (pguyot)
1608
1609    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
1610      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1611
1612    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
1613      variable. (pguyot)
1614
1615    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
1616      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
1617      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
1618
1619Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
1620
1621    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
1622
1623    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
1624      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
1625
1626    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
1627      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
1628      SVN. (pguyot)
1629
1630    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
1631      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
1632
1633    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
1634      (jberry)
1635
1636    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
1637      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
1638
1639    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
1640
1641    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
1642
1643    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1644
1645    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
1646       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
1647       * mention interactive and batch modes
1648       * document extensions to info command.
1649
1650    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
1651
1652    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
1653      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
1654      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
1655
1656Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
1657
1658    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
1659      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
1660      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
1661
1662    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
1663      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
1664
1665    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
1666      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
1667
1668    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
1669
1670    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
1671
1672    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
1673      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
1674
1675    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
1676      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
1677
1678    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
1679
1680    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
1681      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
1682
1683    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
1684
1685    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
1686      (jberry)
1687
1688    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
1689      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
1690      (landonf)
1691
1692    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
1693      installed. (jmpp)
1694
1695    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
1696      project path. (pguyot)
1697
1698    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
1699      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
1700
1701    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
1702      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
1703
1704    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
1705      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
1706
1707    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
1708      (olegb)
1709
1710    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
1711      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
1712
1713    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
1714      iterating). (jberry)
1715
1716    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
1717      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
1718      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
1719
1720    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
1721
1722    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
1723      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
1724      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
1725      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
1726      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
1727      shoot yourself. (jberry)
1728
1729    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
1730      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
1731
1732    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
1733      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
1734
1735    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
1736
1737    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
1738      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
1739        several bug fixes.
1740      * cleaned up the code.
1741      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
1742        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
1743        reported creations).
1744      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
1745        overwritten.
1746
1747    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
1748
1749    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
1750      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
1751      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
1752
1753        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
1754          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
1755          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
1756
1757        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
1758          input following any commands given as arguments.
1759
1760        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
1761          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
1762          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
1763            #!/usr/bin/env portf
1764
1765        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
1766
1767        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
1768
1769        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
1770          interactive/batch mode.
1771
1772        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
1773
1774        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
1775          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
1776          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
1777
1778    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
1779      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
1780      (jberry).
1781
1782    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
1783      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
1784
1785    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
1786      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
1787      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
1788
1789    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
1790      (pguyot)
1791
1792    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
1793
1794    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
1795      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
1796      (jberry)
1797
1798    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
1799      MacOS X. (mww)
1800
1801    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
1802      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
1803      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
1804      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
1805      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
1806      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
1807      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
1808      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
1809      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
1810      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
1811      (jberry) 2006-02-16
1812
1813Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
1814
1815    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
1816      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
1817      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
1818      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
1819      fat, configure as follows:
1820        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
1821                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
1822
1823    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
1824      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
1825      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
1826
1827Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
1828
1829    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
1830      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
1831      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
1832        port uninstall vim @1.0
1833      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
1834      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
1835
1836    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
1837      destroot, too. (mww)
1838
1839    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
1840      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
1841
1842    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
1843      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
1844      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
1845
1846    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
1847      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
1848      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
1849
1850    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
1851      groups of ports.
1852      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
1853      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
1854
1855      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
1856        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
1857
1858      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
1859      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
1860      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
1861      The selectors are:
1862      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
1863      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
1864      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
1865
1866    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
1867      ports or groups of ports.
1868      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
1869
1870    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
1871      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
1872      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
1873      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
1874
1875    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
1876      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
1877
1878    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
1879      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
1880      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
1881
1882    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
1883      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
1884      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
1885      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
1886      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
1887      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
1888
1889    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
1890      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
1891      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
1892
1893    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
1894      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
1895
1896    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
1897      ones considered harmful (blb)
1898
1899    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
1900      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
1901
1902    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
1903      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
1904
1905    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
1906        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
1907          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
1908        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
1909          reports (pguyot)
1910        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
1911
1912    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
1913      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
1914
1915    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
1916
1917    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
1918      echo (the expanded arguments),
1919      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
1920      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
1921      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
1922      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
1923      (jberry)
1924
1925    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
1926      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
1927      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
1928      in a similar fashion (jberry)
