31- Version 2.0.25
32        * updated rtclient_read_packet to be compatible with new rt protocol
33        * rtclient input now correctly ignores packets with type = RT_MSG
34        * erf_write_packet now deals with rxerrors appropriately
35        * building without zlib support should now work properly;
36        * stdin support works again
37        * build fixes for openbsd
38        * local lt_inttypes.h generated for PRIu64 macros etc
39        * setting __attribute__((packed)) on all structs
40        * build fixes for tracereport and testing for libgdc
41        * added tools/tracestats
42
43
44- Version 2.0.24
45        * minor bugs in format_erf
46        * applied autoconf to tools/ dir - these are now built and installed
47          automatically
48        * added --disable-libpacketdump and --disable-tools configure options
49        * improved checking for libpcap
50        * improved checking for g++ (needed for libpacketdump)
51
52- Version 2.0.23
53        * configure fixes for dag
54        * set attributes on functions to improve compiler caching
55        * include tools/ dir in distributed tar.gz
56        * added get_framing_length format function, to return the length
57          of any framing headers added by the capture process (eg, pcap or
58          ERF headers)
59        * added libpacketdump, a library for dumping out packet information
60        * updated tracedump to use libpacketdump, and copied it to the tools/
61          directory
62
63- Version 2.0.22
64        * Documentation updates
65        * Added pcap_dump_flush() replacement function
66        * Better doxygen detection
67        * Support for legacy DAG POS, ATM and Ethernet formats
68
69- Version 2.0.21
70        * fixed error in output erf code, where we were missing 2 bytes
71        * will skip vlan headers
72        * added trace_decode_uri() function
73
74- Version 2.0.20
75        * byte-ordering fixups for WAG
76        * writer functions for pcap and wag
77        * fix of writer functions for erf
78        * format conversion into pcap and erf formats
79        * format conversion only applies if input not already in the right
80          format
81        * move internal fifo* symbols to tracefifo* to prevent collision
82          with libfifo
83
84- Version 2.0.19
85        * Move code for different input formats (erf, pcap, wag) into
86          separate modules, load and initialise on library load.
87        * Add support for primitive trace writing
88          See trace_output_create(), trace_output_destroy(), and
89          trace_write_packet()
90        * Added trace_perror() and libtrace errno functionality.
91
92- Version 2.0.18
93        * When opening a trace file, call open() with O_LARGEFILE set and
94          pass the fd into gzdopen/fdopen.
95        * Distributions should include man pages and other doxygen generated
96          output
97        * make install will install man pages into $PREFIX/man/man3
98        * fixed some compilation bugs in most of the examples
99
100- Version 2.0.17
101        * Fixed a bug in trace_get_erf_timestamp for the pcap path.
102          Timestamps were not being fabricated correctly. This also
103          effected trace_get_seconds, as that calls trace_get_erf_timestamp
104          internally.
105        * If bpf_setfilter() fails, output the filterstring it failed on
106        * Fixed compilation bug under older distributions (woody), where
107          the LTLIBOBJS auto* macro wasn't being expanded correctly
108
109- Version 2.0.16
110        * Ported to OpenBSD - mad props to meanphil
111        * Fixed a bug in the event api where it would die instantly
112          for offline traces.
113        * Added trace_get_{source,destination}_port
114        * Added some constification fixes
115
116- Version 2.0.15b
117        * Fix a memory leak
118        * Correct calls to trace_get_link to catch a NULL returned
119          when an RX error is detected, handle this, and pas it up
120          the chain where appropriate
121        * Use a pcap callback handler when trace_read_packet() reads from
122          a live pcap source. This gives us better diagnostics, such as
123          being able to tell if an error occured. Also fixed a bug under
124          FreeBSD where pcap would block until a buffer was full, then
125          would let pcap_next iterate over all of them.
126
127- Version 2.0.14
128        * Added support for pcap decoding of PPP interfaces (DLT_LINUX_SLL)
129          This DLT provides a direction bit, which we make use of in
130          trace_get_direction(). Check the docs for the specifics
131        * Fixed a bug where ERF traces weren't being checked for rxerrors.
132          If the ERF record indicates an rxerror, then get_link() returns
133          NULL.
134        * Removed an extra , which was preventing compilation under gcc 3.4
135          in FreeBSD
136
137- Version 2.0.13
138        * Improved source docs / doxygen
139        * Added functions to retrieve TCP, UDP and ICMP headers encapsulated
140          within the IP sublayer
141          * get_tcp_from_ip()
142          * get_udp_from_ip()
143          * get_icmp_from_ip()
144        * Added trace_get_next_option to parse TCP/IP options within a
145          libtrace_packet object
146       
147
148- Version 2.0.12
149        * check for IP Fragmentation - if so, don't return TCP header on a
150          fragmented packet
151
152- Version 2.0.11
153
154        * Added in a fallback function for strndup under freebsd.
155          Thanks to mjl for this code.
156
157- Version 2.0.10
158        * Removed some badly licensed code.
159
160- Version 2.0.9
161        * Added improved conditional codepaths for
162                * PCAP
163                * ZLIB
164                * BPF
165                * DAG
166          - These sections of code are only compiled in if there is
167            appropriate support for them in the OS / asked by configure.
168            In the event of no zlib support, we use a fread interface for
169            uncompressed trace files instead.
170
171- Version 2.0.8
172        * Added better configure time checking for pcap-bpf.h (ie, actually fail early if it can't find it or an equivalent)
173        * Added trace_set_direction , to set the direction bit in an ERF based trace.
174        * Added trace_truncate_packet, to truncate the packet at a specified length
175
176
177- Version 2.0.7
178        * Assorted bugfixes.
179
180- Version 2.0.3
181        * Fixed packet->size bug for pcap
182
183- Version 2.0.2
184        * Port to AMD64. Should also work on IA64
185        * Will compile cleanly under gcc-2.95 (Debian Woody)
186        * Compiles cleanly under FBSD 4.5 and 5.2.
187
188- Version 2.0.1
189        * Port to FreeBSD. Thanks to Phil Murray for testing this
190
191- Version 2.0.0
192        * Major API change for cleanup purposes.
193                * libtrace_packet_t object used to hold reference to the
194                  trace object, the buffer, and assorted variables
195        * First autoconf release
196       
197- Version 1.1.0
198        * Tagged as REL_1_1_0
199        * First final release tag
