31- Version 2.0.25 (unreleased)
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
36- Version 2.0.24
37        * minor bugs in format_erf
38        * applied autoconf to tools/ dir - these are now built and installed
39          automatically
40        * added --disable-libpacketdump and --disable-tools configure options
41        * improved checking for libpcap
42        * improved checking for g++ (needed for libpacketdump)
43
44- Version 2.0.23
45        * configure fixes for dag
46        * set attributes on functions to improve compiler caching
47        * include tools/ dir in distributed tar.gz
48        * added get_framing_length format function, to return the length
49          of any framing headers added by the capture process (eg, pcap or
50          ERF headers)
51        * added libpacketdump, a library for dumping out packet information
52        * updated tracedump to use libpacketdump, and copied it to the tools/
53          directory
54
55- Version 2.0.22
56        * Documentation updates
57        * Added pcap_dump_flush() replacement function
58        * Better doxygen detection
59        * Support for legacy DAG POS, ATM and Ethernet formats
60
61- Version 2.0.21
62        * fixed error in output erf code, where we were missing 2 bytes
63        * will skip vlan headers
64        * added trace_decode_uri() function
65
66- Version 2.0.20
67        * byte-ordering fixups for WAG
68        * writer functions for pcap and wag
69        * fix of writer functions for erf
70        * format conversion into pcap and erf formats
71        * format conversion only applies if input not already in the right
72          format
73        * move internal fifo* symbols to tracefifo* to prevent collision
74          with libfifo
75
76- Version 2.0.19
77        * Move code for different input formats (erf, pcap, wag) into
78          separate modules, load and initialise on library load.
79        * Add support for primitive trace writing
80          See trace_output_create(), trace_output_destroy(), and
81          trace_write_packet()
82        * Added trace_perror() and libtrace errno functionality.
83
84- Version 2.0.18
85        * When opening a trace file, call open() with O_LARGEFILE set and
86          pass the fd into gzdopen/fdopen.
87        * Distributions should include man pages and other doxygen generated
88          output
89        * make install will install man pages into $PREFIX/man/man3
90        * fixed some compilation bugs in most of the examples
91
92- Version 2.0.17
93        * Fixed a bug in trace_get_erf_timestamp for the pcap path.
94          Timestamps were not being fabricated correctly. This also
95          effected trace_get_seconds, as that calls trace_get_erf_timestamp
96          internally.
97        * If bpf_setfilter() fails, output the filterstring it failed on
98        * Fixed compilation bug under older distributions (woody), where
99          the LTLIBOBJS auto* macro wasn't being expanded correctly
100
101- Version 2.0.16
102        * Ported to OpenBSD - mad props to meanphil
103        * Fixed a bug in the event api where it would die instantly
104          for offline traces.
105        * Added trace_get_{source,destination}_port
106        * Added some constification fixes
107
108- Version 2.0.15b
109        * Fix a memory leak
110        * Correct calls to trace_get_link to catch a NULL returned
111          when an RX error is detected, handle this, and pas it up
112          the chain where appropriate
113        * Use a pcap callback handler when trace_read_packet() reads from
114          a live pcap source. This gives us better diagnostics, such as
115          being able to tell if an error occured. Also fixed a bug under
116          FreeBSD where pcap would block until a buffer was full, then
117          would let pcap_next iterate over all of them.
118
119- Version 2.0.14
120        * Added support for pcap decoding of PPP interfaces (DLT_LINUX_SLL)
121          This DLT provides a direction bit, which we make use of in
122          trace_get_direction(). Check the docs for the specifics
123        * Fixed a bug where ERF traces weren't being checked for rxerrors.
124          If the ERF record indicates an rxerror, then get_link() returns
125          NULL.
126        * Removed an extra , which was preventing compilation under gcc 3.4
127          in FreeBSD
128
129- Version 2.0.13
130        * Improved source docs / doxygen
131        * Added functions to retrieve TCP, UDP and ICMP headers encapsulated
132          within the IP sublayer
133          * get_tcp_from_ip()
134          * get_udp_from_ip()
135          * get_icmp_from_ip()
136        * Added trace_get_next_option to parse TCP/IP options within a
137          libtrace_packet object
138       
139
140- Version 2.0.12
141        * check for IP Fragmentation - if so, don't return TCP header on a
142          fragmented packet
143
144- Version 2.0.11
145
146        * Added in a fallback function for strndup under freebsd.
147          Thanks to mjl for this code.
148
149- Version 2.0.10
150        * Removed some badly licensed code.
151
152- Version 2.0.9
153        * Added improved conditional codepaths for
154                * PCAP
155                * ZLIB
156                * BPF
157                * DAG
158          - These sections of code are only compiled in if there is
159            appropriate support for them in the OS / asked by configure.
160            In the event of no zlib support, we use a fread interface for
161            uncompressed trace files instead.
162
163- Version 2.0.8
164        * Added better configure time checking for pcap-bpf.h (ie, actually fail early if it can't find it or an equivalent)
165        * Added trace_set_direction , to set the direction bit in an ERF based trace.
166        * Added trace_truncate_packet, to truncate the packet at a specified length
167
168
169- Version 2.0.7
170        * Assorted bugfixes.
171
172- Version 2.0.3
173        * Fixed packet->size bug for pcap
174
175- Version 2.0.2
176        * Port to AMD64. Should also work on IA64
177        * Will compile cleanly under gcc-2.95 (Debian Woody)
178        * Compiles cleanly under FBSD 4.5 and 5.2.
179
180- Version 2.0.1
181        * Port to FreeBSD. Thanks to Phil Murray for testing this
182
183- Version 2.0.0
184        * Major API change for cleanup purposes.
185                * libtrace_packet_t object used to hold reference to the
186                  trace object, the buffer, and assorted variables
187        * First autoconf release
188       
189- Version 1.1.0
190        * Tagged as REL_1_1_0
191        * First final release tag
192
