Last change on this file since 1974620 was 1974620, checked in by Daniel Lawson <dlawson@…>, 16 years ago

added format conversion into pcap and erf formats, and have tested the writers for these formats.

Added a 'type' field to the format_t structure, which specifies the type of trace we're dealing with - erf, pcap, wag.

updated munge to use the new functions.

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