31- Version 2.0.25 (unreleased)
32        * updated rtclient_read_packet to be compatible with new rt protocol
33        * rtclient input now correctly ignores packets with type = RT_MSG
34
35- Version 2.0.24
36        * minor bugs in format_erf
37        * applied autoconf to tools/ dir - these are now built and installed
38          automatically
39        * added --disable-libpacketdump and --disable-tools configure options
40        * improved checking for libpcap
41        * improved checking for g++ (needed for libpacketdump)
42
43- Version 2.0.23
44        * configure fixes for dag
45        * set attributes on functions to improve compiler caching
46        * include tools/ dir in distributed tar.gz
47        * added get_framing_length format function, to return the length
48          of any framing headers added by the capture process (eg, pcap or
49          ERF headers)
50        * added libpacketdump, a library for dumping out packet information
51        * updated tracedump to use libpacketdump, and copied it to the tools/
52          directory
53
54- Version 2.0.22
55        * Documentation updates
56        * Added pcap_dump_flush() replacement function
57        * Better doxygen detection
58        * Support for legacy DAG POS, ATM and Ethernet formats
59
60- Version 2.0.21
61        * fixed error in output erf code, where we were missing 2 bytes
62        * will skip vlan headers
63        * added trace_decode_uri() function
64
65- Version 2.0.20
66        * byte-ordering fixups for WAG
67        * writer functions for pcap and wag
68        * fix of writer functions for erf
69        * format conversion into pcap and erf formats
70        * format conversion only applies if input not already in the right
71          format
72        * move internal fifo* symbols to tracefifo* to prevent collision
73          with libfifo
74
75- Version 2.0.19
76        * Move code for different input formats (erf, pcap, wag) into
77          separate modules, load and initialise on library load.
78        * Add support for primitive trace writing
79          See trace_output_create(), trace_output_destroy(), and
80          trace_write_packet()
81        * Added trace_perror() and libtrace errno functionality.
82
83- Version 2.0.18
84        * When opening a trace file, call open() with O_LARGEFILE set and
85          pass the fd into gzdopen/fdopen.
86        * Distributions should include man pages and other doxygen generated
87          output
88        * make install will install man pages into $PREFIX/man/man3
89        * fixed some compilation bugs in most of the examples
90
91- Version 2.0.17
92        * Fixed a bug in trace_get_erf_timestamp for the pcap path.
93          Timestamps were not being fabricated correctly. This also
94          effected trace_get_seconds, as that calls trace_get_erf_timestamp
95          internally.
96        * If bpf_setfilter() fails, output the filterstring it failed on
97        * Fixed compilation bug under older distributions (woody), where
98          the LTLIBOBJS auto* macro wasn't being expanded correctly
99
100- Version 2.0.16
101        * Ported to OpenBSD - mad props to meanphil
102        * Fixed a bug in the event api where it would die instantly
103          for offline traces.
104        * Added trace_get_{source,destination}_port
105        * Added some constification fixes
106
107- Version 2.0.15b
108        * Fix a memory leak
109        * Correct calls to trace_get_link to catch a NULL returned
110          when an RX error is detected, handle this, and pas it up
111          the chain where appropriate
112        * Use a pcap callback handler when trace_read_packet() reads from
113          a live pcap source. This gives us better diagnostics, such as
114          being able to tell if an error occured. Also fixed a bug under
115          FreeBSD where pcap would block until a buffer was full, then
116          would let pcap_next iterate over all of them.
117
118- Version 2.0.14
119        * Added support for pcap decoding of PPP interfaces (DLT_LINUX_SLL)
120          This DLT provides a direction bit, which we make use of in
121          trace_get_direction(). Check the docs for the specifics
122        * Fixed a bug where ERF traces weren't being checked for rxerrors.
123          If the ERF record indicates an rxerror, then get_link() returns
124          NULL.
125        * Removed an extra , which was preventing compilation under gcc 3.4
126          in FreeBSD
127
128- Version 2.0.13
129        * Improved source docs / doxygen
130        * Added functions to retrieve TCP, UDP and ICMP headers encapsulated
131          within the IP sublayer
132          * get_tcp_from_ip()
133          * get_udp_from_ip()
134          * get_icmp_from_ip()
135        * Added trace_get_next_option to parse TCP/IP options within a
136          libtrace_packet object
137       
138
139- Version 2.0.12
140        * check for IP Fragmentation - if so, don't return TCP header on a
141          fragmented packet
142
143- Version 2.0.11
144
145        * Added in a fallback function for strndup under freebsd.
146          Thanks to mjl for this code.
147
148- Version 2.0.10
149        * Removed some badly licensed code.
150
151- Version 2.0.9
152        * Added improved conditional codepaths for
153                * PCAP
154                * ZLIB
155                * BPF
156                * DAG
157          - These sections of code are only compiled in if there is
158            appropriate support for them in the OS / asked by configure.
159            In the event of no zlib support, we use a fread interface for
160            uncompressed trace files instead.
161
162- Version 2.0.8
163        * Added better configure time checking for pcap-bpf.h (ie, actually fail early if it can't find it or an equivalent)
164        * Added trace_set_direction , to set the direction bit in an ERF based trace.
165        * Added trace_truncate_packet, to truncate the packet at a specified length
166
167
168- Version 2.0.7
169        * Assorted bugfixes.
170
171- Version 2.0.3
172        * Fixed packet->size bug for pcap
173
174- Version 2.0.2
175        * Port to AMD64. Should also work on IA64
176        * Will compile cleanly under gcc-2.95 (Debian Woody)
177        * Compiles cleanly under FBSD 4.5 and 5.2.
178
179- Version 2.0.1
180        * Port to FreeBSD. Thanks to Phil Murray for testing this
181
182- Version 2.0.0
183        * Major API change for cleanup purposes.
184                * libtrace_packet_t object used to hold reference to the
185                  trace object, the buffer, and assorted variables
186        * First autoconf release
187       
188- Version 1.1.0
189        * Tagged as REL_1_1_0
190        * First final release tag
