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