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