The MacPorts Project is proud to announce the release of version 1.7.1.
This is a bugfix release with small changes only.

Notable changes for end users:
  - port upgrade will no longer act on ports which are not installed

Notable changes for port authors:
  - port lint no longer requires master_sites if the port does not have
    any distfiles
  - ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} are automatically created
    in the destroot
  - configure.compiler supports apple-gcc-4.2
  - New "use_7z yes" port option to allow distfiles in 7z format

If you already have MacPorts installed, the preferred method for
updating is to run:

  sudo port selfupdate

Fore new installs, there are also package installers in disk images
available for 10.3, 10.4, and 10.5 (with the latter two being universal
builds) at [1]. The source is available as tarballs compressed with gzip
or bzip2 in the same directory and it is also available from the
subversion tag [2].

Detached signatures are in the same directory. The disk image for 10.5
and the tarballs are signed with GnuPG by me with key id 0x244289AE,
disk images for 10.3 and 10.4 are signed by Bryan Blackburn with key id
0x2952D7AF. Both are available from key servers.

Fingerprints being:
0x244289AE: 3329 3D3E 8FDE F2F0 EFD3  B622 0D55 42D8 2442 89AE
