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