5
6Release 2.1.1 (2012-05-19 by jmr):
7    - Fixed incorrect parsing of mirror group URLs that contain a colon to
8      indicate a port number (#32018, jmr in r93258)
9
10    - Do not print detailed progress information in rev-upgrade when stdout is
11      not a terminal (#34480, cal in r93221,r93222)
12
13    - Made rev-upgrade avoid trying to upgrade ports that are not in the index
14      (jmr in r93197)
15
16    - Fixed rev-upgrade disabling source-only mode in its first upgrade pass
17      (jmr in r93153)
18
19    - Fixed incorrect rebuild order in rev-upgrade (cal in r93129)
20
21    - Fixed port lookups failing for all sources when the index is missing in
22      one source (#30593, jmr in r92976)
23
24    - Fix database upgrade on Tiger, where SQLite doesn't support ALTER TABLE
25      ADD COLUMN (#34463, cal in r93256)
26
27Release 2.1.0 (2012-05-15 by jmr):
28    - New configure.compiler options: macports-clang-2.9, macports-clang-3.0,
29      macports-clang-3.1, macports-gcc-4.7, macports-gcc-4.8
30      (jeremyhu in r86719, ryandesign in r91521)
31
32    - Avoid using pkg-config to find sqlite3 in our configure script unless it
33      can't be found by other means, because some third-party packages
34      incorrectly install a /usr/bin/pkg-config that points to an incompatible
35      copy of sqlite3. (#30932, dluke/jmr in r91512)
36
37    - 'port pkg' and 'port mpkg' will now create flat packages (i.e. a xar
38      archive rather than a directory) on 10.6+.
39      (jmr in r91317, r91329, r91331, r91437)
40
41    - Fixed dependencies sometimes being installed multiple times when
42      required with different archs. (#31794, jmr in r91357)
43
44    - Build-time dependencies will no longer be installed if a prebuilt
45      archive is available for download (and port is configured to use it).
46      (jmr in r91196, r91217)
47
48    - Added new config file archive_sites.conf, which can be used to configure
49      additional archive download sources. Each source has an associated
50      archive type; portarchivetype is now only used when creating archives
51      locally. Sources also have an associated prefix, applications_dir and
52      frameworks_dir, and if any of these do not match the current values, the
53      source is not used. (jmr in r91009)
54
55    - Xcode 4.3 support: Search harder for developer directory; advise user to
56      run xcode-select when necessary, searching for Xcode and suggesting
57      xcode-select commands.
58      (jberry, jmr in r89970,r89971,r89972,r89996,r89999,r90003,r90005-r90009,
59      r90018-r90019,r90024,r90031)
60
61    - warn about non-existing developer_dir when it's set in macports.conf
62      (cal in 90802)
63
64    - port automatically installs bsdmake when there's no bsdmake in $PATH and a
65      port sets build.type bsd (#33355, cal in r90650)
66
67    - Added -W option for reinplace that sets a base directory that all file
68      arguments are interpreted as being relative to. (raimue in r90610)
69
70    - Added macports.conf options 'host_blacklist' and 'preferred_hosts', used
71      for indicating lists of download hosts that should not be used or should
72      be used preferentially, respectively. These override the usual ping time
73      check. Ping times are also now cached for 24 hours. (jmr in r89459)
74
75    - Added 'rev-upgrade' action checking for broken linkage and rebuilding
76      ports containing broken files. Made rev-upgrade run automatically after
77      each upgrade or install.
78      (cal in branch gsoc11-rev-upgrade, merge in r88376, also cal, raimue, jmr
79      in r88377,r88411,r88441,r88511,r88666,r88732,r89180,r89659,r89661,r90102,
80      r90381)
81
82    - Added options controlling rev-upgrade behavior to macports.conf
83      (jmr, cal in r88725,r88794,r89189)
84
85    - port livecheck regex finds multiple matches on the same line
86      (raimue in r88031)
87
88    - Several improvements to port lint:
89      licenses, subversion properties, maintainer addresses
90      (#30194, snc, raimue in r85929, r86016, r89428, r89610)
91
92    - Added license_noconflict option to specify dependencies for which the
93      maintainer has manually checked license compatibility and wishes to
94      overrule the conservative automated checks. (jmr in r89004)
95
96    - Xcode 4.3 support: Use xcrun -find to find xcode compiler if it's not
97      found in /usr/bin.
98      (jberry, jmr in r88540,r88541,r88546,r88777,r88779,r88787,r89359,r89984,r90028)
99
100    - Added options compiler.blacklist, compiler.whitelist, and
101      compiler.fallback; to allow blacklisting, whitelisting, and setting the
102      fallback order for configure.compiler values, respectively.
103      (#30041, jmr in r88676)
104
105    - Fix sync with subdirectory of Subversion 1.7-format working copy
106      (#33573, jmr in 86872)
107
108    - Fixed conflicts not being checked for when installing ports that have no
109      dependencies. (#31571, dports in r85382)
110
111    - dmg postflight: quote all paths to handle the increasingly frequent
112      occurrence that $HOME contains spaces (#33583, ryandesign in r84345)
113
114    - dmg postflight: adjust wording of some messages (ryandesign in r84344)
115
116    - The deprecated Portfile options svn.tag, distcheck.check and
117      livecheck.check have been removed. (raimue in r82763)
118
119    - Implement new option-replace using lsearch/lreplace. The old behavior is
120      deprecated for option-replace with only one argument, but can still be
121      found in option-strsed.
122      (raimue in r82760, r82761)
123
124    - Added 'buildfromsource' macports.conf setting, which allows permanently
125      selecting the behaviour of the -s or -b option. (jmr in r81540)
126
127Release 2.0.4 (2012-02-25 by jmr)
128    - Added -locale option for reinplace (jeremyhu in r89839)
129
130    - Xcode 4.3 support: Change home directory for MacPorts user to
131      ${prefix}/var/macports/home.
132      (jberry, jmr in r89988, r89993, r90002, r90010, r90011)
133
134    - set env(HOME) to ${workpath}/.home when building ports
135      (#31827, jmr in r89994, r90004)
136
137    - Fix use_xmkmf to honor xmkmf.env for its make Makefiles phase
138      (#31504, jeremyhu in r89537, r89538, r89539)
139
140    - Added configure.cxx setting when configure.compiler is apple-gcc-4.2
141      (jeremyhu in r80248)
142
143    - Xcode 4.3 support: added packagemaker_path macports.conf setting
144      (jmr in r90058)
145
146    - Resolve ambiguity in selection in portlists
147      (jberry in r88179, r88185)
148
149    - Xcode 4.3 support: updated default developer_dir location for 4.3
150      (jmr in r90016)
151
152    - Xcode 4.3 support: use compilers in /usr/bin instead of developer_dir
153      when possible, as the latter has proven to be volatile.
154      (jmr in r90015)
155
156    - Xcode 4.3 support: updated SDK paths for 4.3 (jmr in r90000)
157
158    - Work around broken FTP proxy support in some versions of libcurl
159      (jmr in r84351, r88045)
160
161Release 2.0.3 (2011-09-05 by raimue)
162    - Fix a regression introduced in 2.0.2 when fetching with a VCS
163      (#31073, jmr in r83471)
164
165Release 2.0.2 (2011-09-01 by jmr):
166    - Messages recommending running selfupdate will no longer be printed when
167      selfupdate is being run. (#23094, jmr in r83270, r83391)
168
169    - The PortIndex will not be regenerated during selfupdate when base is
170      outdated. This avoids failure to index ports that use features only
171      available in the current version. (#30739, jmr in r83271)
172
173    - Fixed build failures when the TMPDIR environment variable is set to a
174      directory that is not writable by the macports user.
175      (#30749, jmr in r83267)
176
177    - Fixed error when checksumming distfiles with names containing spaces.
178      (#28568, jmr in r83149)
179
180    - The uninstall and deactivate actions now sort the port list so that
181      dependents are processed before the ports they depend on.
182      (#8431, jmr in r82947)
183
184    - Fixed an issue where a non-universal version of a port could be
185      installed as a dependency as well as the universal version, with
186      unpredictable results, when some ports in the dependency graph needed
187      the universal version but others didn't. (jmr in r82924)
188
189    - Now using a temp dir inside ${prefix} when activating, as /tmp or
190      /var/folders may be on a different volume. (jmr in r82767)
191
192    - Fixed extracting portfile-only archives. (#31033, jmr in r81830)
193
194    - Fixed adduser and addgroup procedures not re-dropping privileges when
195      done. (jmr in r81630)
196
197    - Fixed error activating ports with names containing the string "cpio".
198      (#30532, jmr in r81577)
199
200Release 2.0.1 (2011-08-02 by jmr):
201    - Fixed errors when installing some archives built on a case-sensitive
202      filesystem onto a case-insensitive one. (#30373, jmr in r81562)
203
204    - Fixed users created by MacPorts showing up in the GUI in some places on
205      Lion. (#30168, jeremyhu in r81558)
206
207    - Added replaced_by pseudo-portname selector. (afb in r81475)
208
209    - Added progress output to port image conversion script.
210      (#30347, jmr in r81464)
211
212    - Now doing a better job of avoiding UID conflicts with non-local users
213      when creating the 'macports' user. (#30464, jmr in r81414, r81415) Also
214      improved Tiger compatibility in this area. (jmr in r81454, r81467)
215
216    - Fixed 'port selfupdate' exiting with non-zero status after installing a
217      new version of base. (jmr in r81371)
218
219    - Added --subports to options accepted by 'port info'. (jmr in r81234)
220
221    - Fixed incorrect info sometimes being added to PortIndex entries when
222      using subports. (#30463, jmr in r81361)
223
224    - Fixed descriptions not being shown for default variants. (jmr in r80971)
225
226    - Fixed 'port variants --index'. (jmr in r80969)
227
228Release 2.0.0 (2011-07-22 by jmr):
229
230    - Multiple ports can now be defined in one Portfile using the 'subport'
231      procedure. This reduces code duplication when several ports use very
232      similar code. (jmr in r78062)
233
234    - Privilege dropping is now on by default. The runtime user can be changed
235      when building from source but defaults to 'macports'; this user is
236      created at install time. (jmr in r79025)
237
238    - Fetching from some extremely slow or partially unresponsive servers
239      should now time out as expected. (raimue in r71038)
240
241    - The registry is now "vacuumed" (compacted/defragmented) after
242      uninstalling ports. (jmr in r70608)
243
244    - Downloaded archives are now checked for integrity using digital
245      signatures. Sync and selfupdate can also use a signed tarball. New
246      pubkeys.conf file allows configuring keys to trust.
247      (jmr in r68996, r79093)
248
249    - Added 'actinact' pseudo-portname that expands to installed ports with an
250      active version and at least one inactive version.
251      (#27666, jmr in r79421, based on patch from gmail.com:ww.galen)
252
253    - Added --size option for 'contents' action that makes it print the size
254      of each file. (#27245, jmr in r79365, based on patch from
255      gmail.com:ww.galen)
256
257    - Added 'space' action to show the disk space used by ports' active files.
258      (#27244, jmr in r79349, based on patch from gmail.com:ww.galen)
259
260    - Actions can be abbreviated to an unambiguous prefix of the full name.
261      (#27242, patch from gmail.com:ww.galen committed in r79259)
262
263    - Fixed error when activating ports whose version contains an underscore
264      followed by an integer and a dash. (#28084, jmr in r79167)
265
266    - Deactivating a port that has dependents no longer needs to be forced
267      when the dependents are all inactive. (#29505, jmr in r78086)
268
269    - New option 'add_users' has been added. Setting it will ensure that the
270      listed users are created before all operations that may require them to
271      exist. (#11563, jmr in r78660)
272
273    - 'port info --index' should be much faster and will work with the
274      'current' pseudo-port provided the port has been indexed.
275      (#13673, jmr in r78621)
276
277    - Relocation is explicitly disabled when building pkgs on 10.6, so Apple's
278      Installer won't attempt to overwrite other copies of the same software
279      not installed by MacPorts. (#25174, jmr in r78178)
280
281    - Non-Darwin platforms can once again build base against OpenSSL for
282      checksum support. (#26813, afb in r77865)
283
284    - It is now safe to set svn.post_args, rather than that option being
285      reserved for svn.url. (#27454, jmr in r73825)
286
287    - Variants specified when running 'port mpkg' are now set in the
288      dependencies as well. (#27231, jmr in r73303)
289
290    - Fixed various issues with privilege dropping.
291      (#26899, jmr in r69453 etc.)
292
293    - Trace mode no longer fails on 10.6. (#21582, jmr in r74318, r74369)
294
295    - Ports that create StartupItems (aka launchd plists) should now be
296      installable by unprivileged users. (#10879, jmr in r66700, r75143)
297
298    - Fixed incorrect output from 'port dependents' when using newer SQLite
299      versions. (#27506, patch from gmail.com:mmpestorich committed in r76827)
300
301    - The flat registry format is no longer available. Setting portdbformat to
302      'flat' in macports.conf will result in the sqlite registry being used.
303      (jmr in r77681)
304
305    - Port images are now stored as archives. Archive mode is now effectively
306      always on. Among other benefits, this fixes some bugs with the handling
307      of hard links installed by ports (e.g. #13601).
308
309      Direct mode is no longer available. Existing port image directories, and
310      installed files for direct mode, will be converted to archives when
311      upgrading.
312
313      (#19458, branch by blb, merged by jmr in r77511)
314
315    - master_site_local, patch_site_local, and archive_site_local can be set
316      in macports.conf, with the same effects as the corresponding environment
317      variables. (jmr in r74924)
318
319    - Added 'logfile' action that prints the path to a port's log file.
320      (jmr in r74655)
321
322    - Computing large dependency trees that contain the same port(s) multiple
323      times should be considerably faster. (jmr in r73133)
324
325    - New configure.compiler options: macports-gcc-4.6, macports-llvm-gcc-4.2,
326      macports-clang (jmr in r71487; mfeiri in r72936, r72937)
327
328    - Add '-n' option to reinplace (#26406, ryandesign in r73227)
329
330    - Add new ccache_dir and ccache_size options, default path is
331      ${portdbpath}/build/.ccache and a size of 2 GB.
332      (raimue in r71604, r71606)
333
334    - Add 'system -W path' which changes to the given directory before
335      executing the command.
336      (raimue in r71380, r71389)
337
338    - Add -w to build.cmd and destroot.cmd if using gnumake
339      (raimue in r71370)
340
341    - Add livecheck.ignore_sslcert; setting fetch.ignore_sslcert does no
342      longer apply to livecheck. distcheck now respects fetch.ignore_sslcert.
343      (#17063, raimue in r70975, r70979, r70982)
344
345    - Add SHA256 checksums in addition to MD5, SHA1 and RIPEMD160.
346      (afb in r57888, r57913; snc in r68955)
347
348    - Add @pkgdep lines to archives, with build-time dependencies.
349      (afb in r76919)
350
351Release 1.9.2 (2010-11-07 by jmr):
352
353    - Added more locking to avoid TOCTOU errors when running multiple port(1)
354      instances (#19935, jmr in r70174)
355
356    - Fixed -q not suppressing output from 'port lint' (#25880, jmr in r70163)
357
358    - Added a helpful message when there is a checksum mismatch and the
359      distfile appears to incorrectly be a HTML document (#25128,
360      ryandesign/jmr in r70143)
361
362    - Now checking early on if there are sufficient privileges to install,
363      and failing before building anything if not (#25671, jmr in r70135)
364
365    - Avoided possible failure when the -u option is used when upgrading a
366      port that is marked as being replaced by another (jmr in r69022)
367
368    - Using the platform-specific PortIndex when syncing using a daily tarball
369      (jmr in r68786)
370
371    - Fixed failures when fetch target is run without root privileges and the
372      port is then installed with them (#25418, #25937; jmr in r69334, r70271)
373
374    - Fixed upgrading ports where the new version differs from the old version
375      only in epoch (jmr in r69436)
376
377    - Fixed [un]setrequested when using the flat registry format
378      (#26352, jmr in r69387)
379
380    - Fixed checking for conflicting ports before installation
381      (#25386, jmr in r69105)
382
383    - Now gracefully handling distfiles that use a tag that is not
384      associated with any sites (#25332, jmr in r68965)
385
386    - Fixed running 'port deps' on multiple ports, and changed its output
387      format back to how it was in 1.8 (#25324, jmr in r68950)
388
389    - Fixed premature privilege dropping (#25331, jmr in r68952)
390
391Release 1.9.1 (2010-06-18 by jmr):
392    - Fixed a couple of problems with new 1.9 features when using the flat
393      registry format (jmr in r68910, r68913)
394
395    - Ports using the replaced_by option will once again be deactivated when
396      an upgrade is performed on them (#25270, jmr in r68872)
397
398    - Fixed the possibility of some empty directories being left behind when
399      a port is deactivated (#25268, jmr in r68864)
400
401    - Fixed failure to detect conflicts with files that are not provided by
402      a port before activation starts (#25255, jmr in r68849)
403
404    - Fixed problems with distfile names containing spaces (#25245, #25246;
405      jmr in r68816, r68817)
406
407    - Fixed a problem with uninstall when using direct mode, and started
408      running pre/post activate and deactivate procedures when installing and
409      uninstalling in direct mode, respectively (#11562, jmr in r68697)
410
411    - fixed a crasher that affected Tiger (#25194, jmr in r68675, r68680,
412      r68691)
413
414Release 1.9.0 (2010-06-08 by jmr):
415
416    - It is no longer possible to use include statements in Portfiles
417      (raimue in r68206)
418
419    - Command line options can be abbreviated if unambiguous
420      (raimue in r66837)
421
422    - Added a new variable 'os.subplatform'. When os.platform is darwin, the
423      subplatform is either 'macosx' or 'puredarwin'.
424
425    - 'platform' no longer creates a variant, instead it executes the code in
426      the body immediately if the current platform matches the one specified.
427
428    - Using a Portfile with a modification date in the future now causes an
429      informative error early on, instead of just discarding the workdir at
430      the start of every phase. (#24717, raimue in r65246)
431
432    - Fetching from servers that require a cookie to be set now works.
433      (#24584, raimue in r66785)
434
435    - Fixed an error when everything is deleted from the patchfiles list.
436      (#24178, raimue in r65243)
437
438    - Added 'license:' pseudo-port selector. (#24123, perry in r65033)
439
440    - Added new fetch.type 'bzr'. (#23436, perry in r65096)
441
442    - Added 'rdeps' and 'rdependents' actions, recursive versions of 'deps'
443      and 'dependents' respectively. Also added 'depof:', 'rdepof:',
444      'dependentof:' and 'rdependentof:' pseudo-port selectors, for specifying
445      the ports that are dependencies or dependents of the given port.
446      (#22346, jmr in r65858/r66198)
447
448    - Updated the description of the search action in the port(1) man page.
449      (#23749, jmr in r66670)
450
451    - Dry-run now uses /dev/null as the statefile, which prevents a couple of
452      problems involving locking and variant checks.
453      (#21794, #21962; jmr in r66921)
454
455    - The list of dependencies to be installed is now displayed immediately
456      after computing them. (#21540, jmr in r66321)
457
458    - The quick index is now reloaded after syncing in interactive mode, which
459      prevents errors due to it not matching the updated PortIndex.
460      (#20874, jmr in r66319, refinement of patch from carrel.org:edward)
461
462    - The architectures of dependencies are checked when installing a port. If
463      a dependency does not provide the required arch(s), it is rebuilt with
464      +universal if that is possible and will help, otherwise the install fails
465      and an error message explains why. (#20728, jmr in r65087)
466
467    - New supported_archs option allows ports to indicate which architectures
468      they can be built for. The default values of configure.build_arch and
469      configure.universal_archs change based on this list. Set this to
470      'noarch' if a port installs only architecture-independent files.
471      (#20739, jmr in r64372/r64945)
472
473    - Declaring a variant that requires one or more other variants will now
474      correctly set the required variants, so they can be checked with
475      variant_isset. (#19224, jmr in r66642)
476
477    - 'port outdated' now indicates the reason why a port that appears to have
478      the same version as that in the tree is considered outdated. Possible
479      reasons are that the epoch is higher, or the installed version was built
480      on a different OS version. (#19138, jmr in r64960)
481
482    - Distfile names are now percent-escaped in the download URLs when needed.
483      (#18736, jmr in r66794)
484
485    - buildnicevalue is now applied to configure and destroot commands, and to
486      build commands with unusual names. (#18304, raimue in r65076/r65808)
487
488    - Removed hardcoded /opt/local prefix from the base dmg resources.
489      (#17633, jmr in r66776)
490
491    - Fixed an error that occurred when archive mode was enabled but
492      ${prefix}/var/macports/packages did not exist. (#17579, jmr in r66775)
493
494    - Syncing rsync sources now tries to get a platform-specific version of
495      the PortIndex from the server, and skips this if the local copy is less
496      than a day old. All sync methods now update the PortIndex at the end.
497      (#17157, jmr in r66846/r67207)
498
499    - portindex(1) now skips parsing Portfiles whose modification time is
500      older than the current PortIndex, instead reusing the existing entry.
501      (#16235, jmr in r66845)
502
503    - Added a 'requested' flag to the registry that indicates which ports were
504      installed explicitly (as opposed to as a dependency of something else).
505      This enables the new 'requested', 'unrequested' and 'leaves' pseudo-
506      ports, as well as the --follow-dependencies option for uninstall.
507      The setrequested and unsetrequested actions will set and clear the flag,
508      respectively.
509      (#15260, jmr in r64517, r64663, r65546, r66037, r66200, r66215)
510
511    - The macports1.0 directory is now installed to
512      ${prefix}/share/macports/Tcl rather than /Library/Tcl. A symlink will be
513      installed in the old location if there is nothing there already, so
514      'package require macports' will still work in tclsh.
515      (#12943, jmr in r65055)
516
517    - Added warning and error messags when Xcode is old enough to cause
518      problems or too old to use at all, respectively. (#12794, jmr in r66771)
519
520    - Removed the rather outdated copy of sqlite3 from the source tree, made
521      the sqlite3 directory configurable, and added defaults for non-darwin
522      platforms. (#12231, jmr in r64358/r64363)
523
524    - There is a new 'archivefetch' target which is run before unarchive when
525      archive mode is enabled, and attempts to download the archive from a
526      server. There are currently no sites configured to download from (these
527      are stored in the ports tree like the mirror sites used for fetch), but
528      you can set ARCHIVE_SITE_LOCAL in the environment. Note that there is no
529      integrity checking for archives yet. (#8571, jmr in r64816)
530
531    - Now recording negative variants in the registry, which stops deselected
532      variants from being reactivated on upgrade due to default_variants or
533      variants.conf settings. (#2377, jmr in r64533)
534
535    - Added support for pre- and post- procedures for the activate, deactivate
536      and uninstall targets. This feature requires portdbformat sqlite. There
537      was limited support for pre- and post-activate previously, but the
538      procedures were only run when installing the port, not when activating
539      an inactive version. (#1068, #4228, #18273; jmr in r64638/r64639)
540
541    - Integrated the sqlite-based registry2.0 code. The portdbformat variable
542      in macports.conf can be set to 'sqlite' to enable it. Existing flat
543      receipts will be converted the first time port(1) is run with sufficient
544      privileges. Original code by sfiera, fixed and integrated by jmr in
545      r63398 and following. The new format lacks a number of problems that the
546      old one suffers from, including #13054 (dependencies from old port
547      versions stick around across upgrades) and #14123 (files whose paths
548      differ only in case are left behind when uninstalling).
549
550    - Fixed file list in +CONTENTS file in archives. (#21864, jmr in r59882)
551
552    - Fixed a few issues reported with building MacPorts on Linux. (#22716)
553
554    - Upgrade will now always choose the port that is active when following
555      dependencies that could be satisfied by more than one port and more than
556      one of these is installed, instead of choosing the one actually named in
557      the depspec. (#23921, jmr in r60883)
558
559    - Extracting from a disk image ("use_dmg yes") no longer fails when there
560      is a space in $worksrcdir. (#23456, raimue in r67089)
561
562    - Added a configure.sdkroot option which can be used to build against a
563      Mac OS X SDK. It is empty by default unless the value of
564      macosx_deployment_target is not the current OS version, or the universal
565      variant is set and the current platform is PowerPC Tiger. It is also
566      possible to set macosx_deployment_target globally in macports.conf now,
567      but this is unsupported. (#19875, jmr in r66924)
568
569    - Add "fs-traverse -tails" which only returns the part following the
570      specified directory (#21873, raimue in r65785)
571
572    - Allow gcc45 port to be used in configure.compiler (ryandesign in r62223)
573
574    - svn checkouts now use peg revisions instead of operative revisions,
575      so they'll continue to work if a repository gets reorganized
576      (#20777, ryandesign in r60573)
577
578    - Print the location of the log file when a target fails (jmr in r60769)
579
580    - Use CommonCrypto/CommonDigest instead of OpenSSL libcrypto.
581      (toby in r58131, jberry in r59715)
582
583    - New "patch.type gnu" for GNU patch, similar to "build.type gnu"
584      for GNU make. Only makes a difference for BSD patch and BSD make.
585      (afb in r58020)
586
587    - Updated the FreeBSD package (ObjC/Foundation is now optional).
588      (afb in r57889)
589
590    - Don't use "make -j1" for build.jobs=1, but prefer "make" instead.
591      (afb in r57998)
592
593    - Add new "use_xz yes" port option to allow distfiles in xz format.
594      (afb in r57827)
595
596    - Archive mode now uses build_arch in archive names rather than os.arch.
597      (snc in r58977)
598
599    - Add new log command and keeping of debug output for easy access
600      after port has run (GSoC 2009 logging project by enl, merged in r60372)
601
602    - Some of the build_arch flags now appear in LDFLAGS as well, fixing
603      several ports when building for a different architecture (jeremyhu in
604      r60662, jmr in r60680)
605
606    - Fixed 'merge' proc for paths with spaces, and for symlinks on Snow
607      Leopard, and added an error message for when 'merge' is not called
608      correctly (#21852, ryandesign in r58776, r58777, r58778)
609
610Release 1.8.2 (2010-01-01 by jmr):
611
612    - Fixed 'port load' for non-root installations (#21713, jmr in r60774)
613
614    - Fixed a bug that could cause port to hit the open file limit
615      (#22959, jmr in r61770)
616
617    - Fixed an error when installing from source or selfupdating on Tiger with
618      an svn-based ports tree (#20760, jmr in r61302)
619
620    - Fixed an error when selfupdating as root with a prefix that is not owned
621      by root (#21010, jmr in r60798)
622
623    - Stopped uninstall from failing when files in the port image have already
624      been deleted (#22001, jmr in r59318, r59654)
625
626    - Stopped printing command output multiple times on failure (#21084,
627      jmr in r60770)
628
629    - Started showing bug reporting instructions on failure (jmr in r60770)
630
631    - Fixed a bug where 'port dmg' could create too small an image and run out
632      of space (#22404, jmr in r60260)
633
634    - Fixed a bug where reinplace could fail when running port without root
635      privileges (#20896, jmr in r59597)
636
637    - Started setting our own umask since Snow Leopard makes us inherit
638      the user's even when using sudo (#21389, jmr in r59585)
639
640Release 1.8.1 (2009-09-28 by jmr):
641
642    - Installer error messages now display properly even from the Snow Leopard
643      MacPorts dmg. (jmr in r56448)
644
645    - 'fetch.type svn' no longer requires the installation of the subversion
646      port as of Snow Leopard. (toby in r56160; raimue in r56162)
647
648    - Updated manpages and 'port help' output (ryandesign in r56472, r56473,
649      r56474; blb in r56666, r57048, r57131)
650
651    - Fixed syncing using the daily tarball. (#21034, toby in r56889)
652
653    - Fixed 'port load' (#21128, raimue in r57055)
654
655    - Improved error message when an expression on the command line does not
656      match any ports (jmr in r57026)
657
658    - Stopped recording the completion of the install phase in the
659      statefile, which led to errors if the port was uninstalled but the work
660      dir was not cleaned, and the port was then installed again.
661      (jmr/raimue in r57801, 57820)
662
663Release 1.8.0 (2009-08-28 by jmr):
664    - There is now a 'build_arch' variable, available in portfiles and
665      configurable in macports.conf, which sets the CPU architecture that
666      ports should be compiled for (when not building universal). Its default
667      is the same as that of the Apple-supplied /usr/bin/gcc.
668      (#19874, jmr in r53217,r53386,r53420,r53494,r53860,r54236)
669
670    - MacPorts base now works on and has appropriate default settings for
671      Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. (#19874, toby/mww/jkh in r38271,r40060,
672      r40836,r43976,r52397)
673     
674    - MacPorts now requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later. (Panther is not
675      just "unsupported", it really won't work.)
676
677    - The universal_sysroot and universal_target keys have been removed from
678      macports.conf. These settings are now handled automatically.
679      (toby in r52324)
680
681    - Added a 'replaced_by' portfile option. This causes upgrade to deactivate
682      the current port and install the port specified by this option. This
683      also allows ports to be renamed. Upgrade accepts a --no-replace option
684      which disables this behaviour. (#20157, jmr in r54378)
685
686    - The upgrade action now accepts --force and --enforce-variants options.
687      The former causes ports to be rebuilt even if they are not outdated, and
688      the global -f option no longer has this effect (it had too many effects
689      already). The latter causes ports to be rebuilt if the requested
690      variants do not match those installed (even if they are not outdated).
691      (#20156, jmr in r54376)
692
693    - Dependencies can be satisfied by ports that are installed but not
694      available in the ports tree (useful for testing uncommitted ports).
695      (jmr in r52075, r52160)
696
697    - Ports that are installed but not available in the ports tree no longer
698      cause an error when running commands like 'port clean installed'. They
699      are skipped and a warning is printed. (#19253, jmr in r50865)
700
701    - Selfupdate no longer disables readline support unless readline is found
702      in /usr/local, which has historically caused failures.
703      (#19035, jmr in r50868)
704
705    - Uninstalling a port that is not installed now produces an informational
706      message rather than an error. (#18984, jmr in r53709)
707
708    - Added a 'conflicts' portfile option. Conflicting ports will be detected
709      during dependency calculation. (#18794, blb/jmr in r51525)
710
711    - 'port selfupdate' now explicitly states precisely what it does. (#18512)
712
713    - Operating system and architecture information is now shown in debug
714      output. (#18435, raimue in r46669)
715
716    - Fixed a bug that could break some symlinks to man pages. (#18302)
717
718    - Switched to a more efficient algorithm for looking up port information
719      in the index, which makes many operations faster.
720      (#18259, jmr/blb in r47110)
721
722    - MacPorts base now tries to avoid using commands that come from ports, so
723      that a broken port can't break the base code. (#18149)
724
725    - Deleting all the contents of a portfile option no longer unsets the
726      option entirely. (#17865, toby in r44901)
727
728    - Removed the code that upgrades from the old DarwinPorts filesystem
729      layout. Trying to upgrade to 1.8.0+ from a version older than 1.5.0 will
730      produce an error message saying you need to install 1.7.1 first.
731      (#17619, jmr in r53260)
732
733    - port(1) now reports its version as dotted-decimal rather than floating
734      point. (#17420)
735
736    - Dependencies are now always obtained by parsing the Portfile and not
737      from the PortIndex, since the latter can't provide expanded variables
738      like $prefix which may be used in path: depspecs. (#17182)
739
740    - Newline characters in long_description can no longer cause receipt
741      corruption. (#16619, blb in r50663)
742
743    - Now unlocking the filemap when it is not in use. This allows e.g.
744      'port contents' to be run while another port instance is performing
745      installs. Note that running more than one simultaneous port instance
746      that will modify the registry can easily fail, though hopefully
747      without corrupting anything. (#16246, jmr in r51133)
748
749    - Removed some irrelevant debug output that was being printed when a port
750      failed. (#16203, jmr in r53706)
751
752    - Added new depends_fetch and depends_extract options, for dependencies
753      that are needed to fetch or extract the port, respectively.
754      (#15161, jmr in r51780)
755
756    - Packages (including the one for MacPorts base) now correctly indicate
757      that they can only be installed on the root volume.
758      (#14809, jmr in r53250)
759
760    - Using an alternative fetch or extract type now adds appropriate
761      dependencies automatically, e.g. 'use_zip yes' adds a dep on unzip, and
762      'fetch.type svn' adds a dep on subversion. (#13981, jmr in r43782)
763
764    - port(1) should now exit with an appropriate status code when an error is
765      encountered. Use the -p option to continue despite errors.
766      (#13918, jmr in r53704)
767
768    - Proxy information can now be obtained from System Preferences and from
769      macports.conf. The older method using environment variables no longer
770      works out of the box on Leopard due to changes that Apple made to the
771      default /etc/sudoers. (#13158, blb in r47194)
772
773    - Improved handling of malformed variant definitions.
774      (#12596, jmr in r50719, r50721)
775
776    - Cope a little better with missing receipt files. (#19540, jmr in r51138)
777
778    - Fixed a major memory leak in the filemap code.
779      (#12022, pguyot in r51419)
780
781    - Improved the logic for determining whether phases can be skipped. This
782      fixes the specific problems of being unable to build packages of ports
783      that are installed, port not running specific phases (e.g. build)
784      when told to if the port is installed, and inactive dependencies being
785      rebuilt instead of simply activated. (#10881, #16260, jmr in r50490)
786
787    - When archive mode is enabled, ports will no longer be rebuilt if an
788      archive is available. (#10785, jmr in r50416)
789
790    - Activating a port will now first deactivate any other version of the
791      same port that is already active. (#10571, jmr in r53711)
792
793    - Added a 'license' portfile option, which is displayed in 'port info'
794      output. (#7493, jmr in r50801)
795
796    - port lint recognizes new top-level category php (#19329, ryandesign)
797
798    - Do not print header lines when the quiet option -q is set
799      (raimue in r48558)
800
801    - svn.tag is deprecated, use svn.revision instead (raimue in r48222-48223)
802
803    - port -i option has been removed (blb in r48218)
804
805    - ui_warn logs to stderr instead of stdout (raimue in r48217)
806
807    - Remove --pretend option for port selfupdate, use global dry-run option
808      instead (raimue in r48125)
809
810    - port(1) option -y for dry-run (#11892, gwhitney/jmr in r43726)
811
812    - New pseudo-port 'obsolete' to identify ports which are installed but no
813      longer in the PortIndex (raimue in r47253)
814
815    - MacPorts can now perform fetch, extract, patch, configure and build in a
816      user rather than system owned location. By default, this is
817      ~/.macports/opt. This allows MacPorts to do all but the install of the
818      port without root privileges. (gsoc08-privileges)
819
820    - MacPorts can now automatically drop privileges so as to avoid running as
821      root whenever possible. To enable this, pass the desired user to run as
822      to configure with the --with-macports-user option. (gsoc08-privileges)
823
824    - The Portfile format has a number of new boolean attributes to indicate
825      when an action should or should not be run with root privileges:
826      'patch.asroot', 'build.asroot', 'configure.asroot', 'destroot.asroot',
827      and 'install.asroot'. The default for all is "no". If the prefix folder
828      (by default /opt/local) is not writable, MacPorts will attempt to
829      elevate privileges to root for the install phase. (gsoc08-privileges)
830
831    - A "make group" command has been added to the Makefile and a
832      "--with-shared-directory" switch to the configure script. Running "make
833      group" will create a macports group. "--with-shared-directory" will let
834      let the group specified by "--with-install-group" have full read write
835      access to the /opt/local hierarchy. This will allow users who are
836      members of the new macports group to have full write permissions to
837      /opt/local and its subfolders, and hence to install ports which only
838      affect that hierarchy without requiring root privileges.
839      (gsoc08-privileges)
840
841    - A switch called "--with-no-root-privileges" has been added for use by
842      user installing MacPorts for their own use only. An example configure
843      command would be "./configure
844      --prefix=/Users/{your-user-name-here}/.macports/opt
845      --with-no-root-privileges" (gsoc08-privileges)
846
847    - Add several new options to port search, looks in name and description by
848      default (#15434, raimue)
849
850    - Add xpkg package type, xar-based format with XML. (afb)
851
852    - Split portpkg creation out from portsubmit phase. (afb)
853
854    - Make dependencies displayed in port info respect variants
855      specified in variants.conf; collapse port deps to be an alias
856      for port info with appropriate flags. Note this changes output
857      format of port deps somewhat.  (#11891, gwhitney in r44340)
858
859    - Make dependencies in port upgrade respect variants as specified
860      (in order of precedence) on command line, latest installed
861      version, or variants.conf .  (#8221, gwhitney in r44362)
862
863    - Add select action, which integrates *_select tools into port.
864      (#17477, perry)
865
866    - The variants action additionally shows default variants, conflicting
867      variants and variants' dependencies. (#14178, #15628, perry)
868
869    - Implicit variants (e.g., darwin) can no longer be explicitly
870      set/unset. (#12563, perry in r46938, jmr in r53371)
871
872Release 1.7.1 (2009-03-28 by raimue):
873    - Trailing slashes are stripped from the prefix passed to configure, which
874      prevents incorrect mtree violation warnings. (#13789)
875
876    - Fix freshmeat-based livecheck (#18887)
877
878    - Fix issue on direct-mode installs where checking for installed ports
879      wasn't properly looking (it only matched for revision 0 and no
880      variants) (#17762)
881
882    - Add new "use_7z yes" port option to allow distfiles in 7z format
883      (#18521, ryandesign)
884
885    - port lint no longer requires variable master_sites if the port has no
886      distfiles (#18479, ryandesign)
887
888    - Upgrade will no longer accept ports that are not installed (but it still
889      installs new ports as dependencies if needed). In particular, this means
890      that "port upgrade all" will no longer proceed to install every
891      available port. (jmr in r46052)
892
893    - Add mkdtemp Tcl command to create temporary directories. (#17181, perry)
894
895    - Add 'apple-gcc-4.2' option to configure.compiler (#18426, ryandesign)
896
897    - Create ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} in destroot
898      automatically (r45614, raimue)
899
900    - Make the postflight procedure a bit smarter about which login files
901      to update for bash and tcsh (#17588)
902
903    - Add error messages to package installers when the wrong OS package
904      is being installed (#13141)
905
906Release 1.7.0 (2008-12-13 by blb):
907    - Global variant descriptions using variant_descriptions.conf in the new
908      resources directory in the ports tree (#14482, raimue)
909
910    - Move port resources into the ports tree (#14553, raimue and blb)
911
912    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
913
914    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
915
916    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
917
918    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
919      --nitpick is used (#14799)
920
921    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
922
923    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
924
925    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
926      phases (#11897)
927
928    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
929      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
930
931    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
932      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
933      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
934      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
935
936    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
937      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
938      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
939      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
940      in r38683)
941
942    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
943
944    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
945      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
946      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
947
948    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
949      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
950      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
951      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, r37621)
952
953    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
954      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
955      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
956      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
957
958    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
959      (#15577, afb in r37501)
960
961    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
962
963    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
964      running (raimue)
965
966    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
967      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
968      jmr in r37217, r37255)
969
970    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
971      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
972      r37121)
973
974    - Stopped 'port -R upgrade' from processing more ports than it should, and
975      from processing ports multiple times. (#10827, jmr in r37046)
976
977    - Don't include build.nice and build.jobs in destroot.cmd (#15295)
978
979    - The default universal variant is no longer added when we know it won't
980      work. (#12170, jmr in r36764)
981
982    - During upgrade, if the latest installed version of a port is not active,
983      the currently active version (if any) is now deactivated before trying
984      to activate the latest version. (#12013, jmr in r36762)
985
986    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is
987      inactive and there is at least one other version of the same port
988      installed (#11501, jmr in r36747)
989
990    - Duplicate entries can no longer build up in the dependency map (#8763,
991      jmr in r36745)
992
993    - In image mode, dependencies are no longer treated as being satisfied
994      when the satisfying port is not active (#7361, jmr in r36735)
995
996    - Fixed a bug where upgrade could create too many nested subdirectories
997      in distpath, archive.destpath and unarchive.srcpath (#11971, jmr in
998      r36679, r36687, r36688)
999
1000    - Declaring a dependency on a nonexistent port now always causes an error
1001      (#10768, jmr in r36648)
1002
1003    - Explicitly use unsetenv(3) on all environment variables (#13930, #16010,
1004      #16233)
1005
1006    - Make the included tclthread compile on Leopard if configured (#13495)
1007
1008    - Allow distfiles to be disk images with "use_dmg yes" port option (#13509,
1009      ryandesign in r36708)
1010
1011    - ruby.setup now takes a type 'fetch' to just fetch/extract (eridius in r35773)
1012
1013    - Fetch now prefers mirrors with lower ping times (#14891, jmr in r35748,
1014      r35806, r35808)
1015
1016    - Fetching of daily snapshot tarballs of the ports tree as an alternative to rsync
1017      (raimue in r35647, r35648)
1018
1019    - port uninstall now takes --follow-dependents to uninstall all dependents
1020      (#14637, eridius/raimue in r34977, r35042, r36160)
1021
1022    - New fetch.type git (#14232, eridius in r34875)
1023
1024    - fixed "port mdmg" getting block size wrong for the disk image (#13968, afb in r34844)
1025
1026    - always set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, to avoid bugs with older glibtool (afb in r34541)
1027
1028    - port lint now checks all dependencies so that the ports actually exist (#14380)
1029
1030    - added target_state to avoid the need for privileges for lint/livecheck (#13458)
1031
1032    - Overhauled output for port info/deps/dependents/search (raimue in
1033      r34354, r34371, r34391, r34395, r34402, r34420)
1034
1035    - Revert the default +universal MDT/SDK to 10.4/10.4u on Tiger and 10.5/10.5 on Leopard
1036
1037    - port lint shouldn't require variable master_sites for fetch.type != standard (#14377)
1038
1039    - Add "tcldoc" documentation comments and "tcldox" Doxyfile for doxygen (#12048)
1040
1041    - Add --pretend and --nosync flags to selfupdate (raimue in r33938, r33939,
1042      r33940, r33941)
1043
1044    - Work around autoconf X11 detection bugs on darwin (afb in r33717)
1045
1046    - Fix bugs with X11 lib detection on Leopard (#14089, afb in r33716)
1047
1048    - Add configure.{optflags,m32,m64,march,mtune} (afb in r33503, r33599)
1049
1050    - Add applications_dir and frameworks_dir configuration (r33499, r33722)
1051
1052    - Remove some hardcoded paths (such as /usr/X11R6, /usr/bin/install) (afb in r33501, r33619, r33620)
1053
1054    - Add configure.{universal_target,universal_sysroot,universal_archs} (afb in r33478).
1055
1056    - Change default +universal platform back to: 10.4/10.4u.sdk/i386 ppc (r33087, r33107).
1057
1058    - Add `port platform` info action that outputs current platform (#12302, afb in r32724).
1059
1060    - Enable 64 bit environment, ppc64 x86_64, for all +universal builds (mww in r32194).
1061
1062    - Add 'merge' function for merging multiple (single arch) destroots into one (universal)
1063      destroot (mww in r31954).
1064
1065    - If checksum is mismatched, and in verbose mode, present a corrected pre-fabricated checksum statement
1066      to make it easy to update a port (jberry in r32441).
1067
1068    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_prefix"" runtime error on Panther
1069      (eridius in r32525).
1070
1071    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_channels"" runtime error on Panther
1072      (eridius in r32514).
1073
1074    - "port lint" now recognizes non-canonical modelines (afb in r32480).
1075
1076    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
1077
1078    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
1079      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_version (jmpp in r32353).
1080
1081    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents
1082      (jmpp in r32336).
1083
1084    - Fixed a Panther build failure due to missing sqlite headers (jmpp in r32212).
1085
1086    - Fixed a build failure by passing the base/src/cregistry/cregistry.a archive through ranlib (jmpp in r32105).
1087
1088
1089Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
1090
1091    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
1092      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
1093      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
1094      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
1095
1096    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
1097      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
1098
1099    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
1100
1101    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
1102      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
1103
1104    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
1105      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
1106      (#10651, jberry in r31139, r31140).
1107
1108    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
1109      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
1110      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
1111      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).

1113    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
1114
1115    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
1116      multiple files (mww in r31028)

1118    - add optional configure.pipe output (afb in r29604 & r30824)
1119
1120    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)

1123
1124    - Auto-mode for number of parallel build threads (if number of jobs is set to "0") (r30739)
1125
1126    - Add option use_parallel_build [yes|no] to declare if a port can be built in parallel (r30714).
1127
1128    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).
1129
1130    - Display warnings when using old versions of Mac OS X and Xcode Tools
1131      (#12794, afb in r30338 & r30477)
1132
1133    - Remove configure.macosx_deployment_target, add global macosx_deployment_target
1134      (eridius in r30396).
1135
1136    - add support for LZMA compression, for making .tlz archives (afb in r30307)
1137
1138    - add configure.[perl|python|ruby] for interpreters, .install for avoiding breakage
1139      due to coreutils, .libs
1140
1141    - added startupitem.netchange boolean flag (#12931, N_Ox in r30086).
1142
1143    - added generic GNU livecheck (N_Ox in r29812).
1144
1145    - fixed bug where all .mpkg packages were missing their welcome page (afb in r29517)
1146
1147    - better defaults for implicit ui_channels behaviour (eridius in r29498).
1148
1149    - prevent creating PKG packages with /etc or /var or /tmp (#2102, afb in r29445)
1150
1151    - add optional configure.ccache and configure.distcc filters (#5390, afb in r29438)
1152
1153    - Explicitly sort fs-traverse so it behaves predictably on Linux systems
1154      (#12622, eridius in r29412).
1155
1156    - add configure.objc/objcflags for Objective-C
1157
1158    - add optional build.nice (0) and build.jobs (1) modifiers (afb in r28634 & r28673)
1159
1160    - make tclobjc1.0 compile with GNUstep and NXConstantString class (afb in r28668)
1161
1162    - fix bsdmake/gnumake defaults for FreeBSD and Linux platforms (afb in r28660)
1163
1164    - port lint command, for Portfile verification (#463, afb in r28170)
1165
1166    - add configure.macosx_deployment_target for configure flags
1167
1168    - add configure.javac/classpath for Java
1169
1170    - add configure.fflags/fcflags/f90flags for Fortran flags

1172    - Mark "python" group code as deprecated
1173
1174    - Add group code for Python 3.0
1175
1176    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
1177
1178    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
1179      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
1180
1181    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
1182
1183    - Chris Pickel's GSoC2007 work: registry2.0 & cregistry (mainly r27518 & r27520)
1184
1185    - Eugene Pimenov's GSoC2007 work: Trace lib on unix sockets (r26682).
1186
1187    - Elias Pipping's GSoC2007 work: merge.rb on his personal /users/pipping svn dir.
1188
1189
1190Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
1191
1192    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
1193      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
1194      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
1195
1196
1197Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
1198
1199    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
1200      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
1201
1202    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
1203      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
1204
1205    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
1206
1207    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
1208      (mww in r27199).
1209
1210    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
1211
1212    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
1213
1214    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
1215
1216    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
1217      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
1218
1219    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
1220
1221    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
1222
1223    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
1224
1225
1226Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
1227
1228    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
1229      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
1230      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
1231      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
1232      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
1233
1234    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
1235
1236    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
1237
1238    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
1239      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
1240      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
1241      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
1242      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
1243
1244    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
1245
1246    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
1247      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
1248
1249    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
1250
1251    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
1252      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
1253
1254    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
1255      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
1256      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
1257      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
1258      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
1259      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
1260
1261    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
1262
1263    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
1264
1265    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
1266
1267    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
1268      to detect problems between required and negated variants
1269      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
1270
1271    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
1272      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
1273      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
1274      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
1275
1276    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
1277      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
1278
1279    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
1280      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
1281      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
1282
1283    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
1284      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
1285         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
1286         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
1287      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
1288      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
1289      (jberry r25795).
1290
1291    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
1292
1293    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
1294      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
1295      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
1296
1297    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
1298      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
1299
1300    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
1301      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
1302
1303    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
1304      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
1305      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
1306      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
1307      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
1308      (boeyms in r25310)
1309
1310Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
1311
1312    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
1313
1314Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
1315
1316    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
1317
1318    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
1319      This allows information about variants to be displayed (e.g. dependencies).
1320      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
1321      (eridius r25255).
1322
1323    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
1324
1325    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
1326      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
1327      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
1328
1329    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
1330      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
1331
1332    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
1333      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
1334      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
1335      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
1336      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
1337      (boeyms r25110)
1338
1339    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
1340      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
1341      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
1342      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
1343
1344    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
1345
1346    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
1347      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
1348
1349    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
1350      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
1351
1352    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
1353
1354    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
1355      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
1356
1357    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
1358      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
1359      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
1360      (jberry r25146)
1361
1362    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
1363         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
1364         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
1365         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
1366           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
1367           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
1368
1369        Example:
1370
1371            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
1372                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
1373            }
1374
1375        (jberry r25147)
1376
1377    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
1378      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
1379
1380
1381Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
1382
1383    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
1384      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
1385      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
1386      it differently.
1387
1388    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
1389      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
1390      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
1391      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
1392      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
1393
1394    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
1395      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
1396      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
1397
1398    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
1399
1400    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
1401
1402    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
1403      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
1404
1405    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
1406
1407    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
1408
1409    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
1410      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
1411      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
1412
1413    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
1414      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
1415
1416    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
1417      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
1418
1419    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
1420      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
1421
1422    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
1423
1424    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
1425      (pguyot r24273).
1426
1427    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
1428      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
1429      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
1430
1431    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
1432      This work is in progress. (jberry)
1433       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
1434       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
1435         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
1436
1437    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
1438      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
1439
1440    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
1441      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
1442
1443    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
1444      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
1445
1446    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
1447
1448    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
1449
1450Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
1451
1452    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
1453      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
1454      (jberry r24151).
1455
1456    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
1457      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
1458      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
1459      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
1460      (pipping r24148).
1461
1462Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
1463
1464    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
1465      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
1466
1467    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
1468      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
1469
1470    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
1471      for submitter information.
1472      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
1473        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
1474        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
1475            - PORTSRC
1476            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
1477            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
1478          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
1479       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
1480
1481    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
1482      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
1483
1484    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
1485      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
1486      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
1487      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1488
1489    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
1490
1491    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
1492      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
1493
1494Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
1495
1496    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
1497      (pipping in r23343).
1498
1499    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
1500      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
1501
1502    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
1503      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
1504      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
1505
1506    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
1507      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
1508
1509    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
1510      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
1511      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
1512
1513    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
1514
1515    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
1516      r22313).
1517
1518    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
1519      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
1520      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
1521      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
1522
1523    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
1524      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
1525
1526    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
1527      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
1528
1529    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
1530      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
1531
1532    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
1533      r23967)
1534
1535
1536Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
1537
1538    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
1539      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
1540
1541    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
1542
1543    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
1544      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
1545
1546    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
1547
1548    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
1549
1550    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
1551      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
1552
1553    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
1554
1555    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
1556
1557    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
1558      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
1559
1560    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
1561      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
1562
1563    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
1564      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
1565      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
1566
1567    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
1568
1569    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
1570      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
1571
1572    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
1573      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
1574
1575    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
1576      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
1577
1578    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
1579
1580    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
1581
1582    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
1583      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
1584
1585    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
1586
1587    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
1588
1589    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
1590
1591    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
1592      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
1593
1594    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
1595      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
1596
1597    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
1598
1599    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
1600
1601
1602Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
1603
1604    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
1605      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
1606
1607    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
1608
1609    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
1610      code. (pguyot)
1611
1612    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
1613      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
1614
1615    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
1616      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
1617
1618    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
1619      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
1620      /usr/local. (pguyot)
1621
1622    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
1623
1624    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
1625      (josh_root, blb)
1626
1627    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
1628      are modified. (pguyot)
1629
1630    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
1631      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1632
1633    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
1634      variable. (pguyot)
1635
1636    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
1637      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
1638      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
1639
1640Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
1641
1642    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
1643
1644    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
1645      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
1646
1647    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
1648      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
1649      SVN. (pguyot)
1650
1651    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
1652      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
1653
1654    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
1655      (jberry)
1656
1657    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
1658      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
1659
1660    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
1661
1662    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
1663
1664    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1665
1666    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
1667       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
1668       * mention interactive and batch modes
1669       * document extensions to info command.
1670
1671    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
1672
1673    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
1674      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
1675      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
1676
1677Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
1678
1679    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
1680      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
1681      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
1682
1683    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
1684      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
1685
1686    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
1687      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
1688
1689    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
1690
1691    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
1692
1693    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
1694      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
1695
1696    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
1697      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
1698
1699    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
1700
1701    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
1702      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
1703
1704    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
1705
1706    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
1707      (jberry)
1708
1709    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
1710      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
1711      (landonf)
1712
1713    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
1714      installed. (jmpp)
1715
1716    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
1717      project path. (pguyot)
1718
1719    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
1720      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
1721
1722    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
1723      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
1724
1725    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
1726      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
1727
1728    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
1729      (olegb)
1730
1731    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
1732      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
1733
1734    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
1735      iterating). (jberry)
1736
1737    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
1738      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
1739      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
1740
1741    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
1742
1743    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
1744      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
1745      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
1746      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
1747      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
1748      shoot yourself. (jberry)
1749
1750    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
1751      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
1752
1753    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
1754      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
1755
1756    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
1757
1758    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
1759      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
1760        several bug fixes.
1761      * cleaned up the code.
1762      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
1763        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
1764        reported creations).
1765      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
1766        overwritten.
1767
1768    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
1769
1770    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
1771      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
1772      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
1773
1774        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
1775          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
1776          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
1777
1778        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
1779          input following any commands given as arguments.
1780
1781        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
1782          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
1783          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
1784            #!/usr/bin/env portf
1785
1786        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
1787
1788        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
1789
1790        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
1791          interactive/batch mode.
1792
1793        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
1794
1795        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
1796          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
1797          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
1798
1799    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
1800      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
1801      (jberry).
1802
1803    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
1804      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
1805
1806    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
1807      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
1808      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
1809
1810    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
1811      (pguyot)
1812
1813    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
1814
1815    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
1816      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
1817      (jberry)
1818
1819    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
1820      MacOS X. (mww)
1821
1822    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
1823      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
1824      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
1825      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
1826      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
1827      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
1828      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
1829      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
1830      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
1831      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
1832      (jberry) 2006-02-16
1833
1834Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
1835
1836    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
1837      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
1838      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
1839      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
1840      fat, configure as follows:
1841        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
1842                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
1843
1844    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
1845      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
1846      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
1847
1848Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
1849
1850    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
1851      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
1852      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
1853        port uninstall vim @1.0
1854      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
1855      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
1856
1857    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
1858      destroot, too. (mww)
1859
1860    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
1861      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
1862
1863    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
1864      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
1865      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
1866
1867    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
1868      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
1869      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
1870
1871    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
1872      groups of ports.
1873      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
1874      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
1875
1876      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
1877        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
1878
1879      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
1880      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
1881      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
1882      The selectors are:
1883      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
1884      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
1885      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
1886
1887    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
1888      ports or groups of ports.
1889      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
1890
1891    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
1892      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
1893      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
1894      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
1895
1896    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
1897      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
1898
1899    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
1900      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
1901      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
1902
1903    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
1904      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
1905      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
1906      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
1907      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
1908      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
1909
1910    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
1911      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
1912      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
1913
1914    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
1915      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
1916
1917    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
1918      ones considered harmful (blb)
1919
1920    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
1921      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
1922
1923    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
1924      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
1925
1926    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
1927        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
1928          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
1929        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
1930          reports (pguyot)
1931        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
1932
1933    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
1934      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
1935
1936    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
1937
1938    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
1939      echo (the expanded arguments),
1940      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
1941      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
1942      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
1943      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
1944      (jberry)
1945
1946    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
1947      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
1948      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
1949      in a similar fashion (jberry)
