15DESCRIPTION
16-----------
17*port outdated* lists all ports that have newer versions available. For each
18port, it prints the name and both the old and the new version. *port outdated*
19will give you the reason why MacPorts considers a port to be outdated. This
20could be
21
22 - due to an update, i.e. if the version number increased,
23 - due to a revision bump, i.e. a higher revision,
24 - due to an epoch increase (used in situations where the version number
25   decreased, but the port still is newer than the previous one), or
26 - due to an OS upgrade. MacPorts will consider ports built on a previous
27   version of OS X outdated.
28   
29The ports listed in *port outdated* are the ports that will be upgraded when you
30run
31
32----
33$> sudo port upgrade outdated
34----
35
36i.e. those the 'outdated' pseudo-port selector expands to, with one exception:
37If you have the newest version of a port installed, but deactivated in favor of
38an older version, *port outdated* will list it as outdated, but *sudo port
39upgrade outdated* will not upgrade it. This can be used to intentionally stay at
40an older version of a port, e.g. if the newer version does not work as expected.
41Note that MacPorts will still install newer versions of such ports if they are
42dependencies of other ports to be installed or upgraded.
