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