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