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