31- Version 3.0.0
32        * Zero-copy
33        * Split wag device and wag trace into two separate uris, wag and wtf
34          respectively
35        * Corrected wag_read so that it correctly reads from the wag device
36        * Wag header is now in network byte order so byte order conversion
37          added when reading from the header
38        * Renamed trace_output_create, trace_output_destroy,
39          trace_packet_create, and trace_packet_destroy as they were
40          inconsistent with other functions
41        * Fixed bug in tracertstats where -c option changed packet interval
42          rather than packet count
43
44- Version 2.0.25
45        * updated rtclient_read_packet to be compatible with new rt protocol
46        * rtclient input now correctly ignores packets with type = RT_MSG
47        * erf_write_packet now deals with rxerrors appropriately
48        * building without zlib support should now work properly;
49        * stdin support works again
50        * build fixes for openbsd
51        * local lt_inttypes.h generated for PRIu64 macros etc
52        * setting __attribute__((packed)) on all structs
53        * build fixes for tracereport and testing for libgdc
54        * added tools/tracestats
55
56
57- Version 2.0.24
58        * minor bugs in format_erf
59        * applied autoconf to tools/ dir - these are now built and installed
60          automatically
61        * added --disable-libpacketdump and --disable-tools configure options
62        * improved checking for libpcap
63        * improved checking for g++ (needed for libpacketdump)
64
65- Version 2.0.23
66        * configure fixes for dag
67        * set attributes on functions to improve compiler caching
68        * include tools/ dir in distributed tar.gz
69        * added get_framing_length format function, to return the length
70          of any framing headers added by the capture process (eg, pcap or
71          ERF headers)
72        * added libpacketdump, a library for dumping out packet information
73        * updated tracedump to use libpacketdump, and copied it to the tools/
74          directory
75
76- Version 2.0.22
77        * Documentation updates
78        * Added pcap_dump_flush() replacement function
79        * Better doxygen detection
80        * Support for legacy DAG POS, ATM and Ethernet formats
81
82- Version 2.0.21
83        * fixed error in output erf code, where we were missing 2 bytes
84        * will skip vlan headers
85        * added trace_decode_uri() function
86
87- Version 2.0.20
88        * byte-ordering fixups for WAG
89        * writer functions for pcap and wag
90        * fix of writer functions for erf
91        * format conversion into pcap and erf formats
92        * format conversion only applies if input not already in the right
93          format
94        * move internal fifo* symbols to tracefifo* to prevent collision
95          with libfifo
96
97- Version 2.0.19
98        * Move code for different input formats (erf, pcap, wag) into
99          separate modules, load and initialise on library load.
100        * Add support for primitive trace writing
101          See trace_output_create(), trace_output_destroy(), and
102          trace_write_packet()
103        * Added trace_perror() and libtrace errno functionality.
104
105- Version 2.0.18
106        * When opening a trace file, call open() with O_LARGEFILE set and
107          pass the fd into gzdopen/fdopen.
108        * Distributions should include man pages and other doxygen generated
109          output
110        * make install will install man pages into $PREFIX/man/man3
111        * fixed some compilation bugs in most of the examples
112
113- Version 2.0.17
114        * Fixed a bug in trace_get_erf_timestamp for the pcap path.
115          Timestamps were not being fabricated correctly. This also
116          effected trace_get_seconds, as that calls trace_get_erf_timestamp
117          internally.
118        * If bpf_setfilter() fails, output the filterstring it failed on
119        * Fixed compilation bug under older distributions (woody), where
120          the LTLIBOBJS auto* macro wasn't being expanded correctly
121
122- Version 2.0.16
123        * Ported to OpenBSD - mad props to meanphil
124        * Fixed a bug in the event api where it would die instantly
125          for offline traces.
126        * Added trace_get_{source,destination}_port
127        * Added some constification fixes
128
129- Version 2.0.15b
130        * Fix a memory leak
131        * Correct calls to trace_get_link to catch a NULL returned
132          when an RX error is detected, handle this, and pas it up
133          the chain where appropriate
134        * Use a pcap callback handler when trace_read_packet() reads from
135          a live pcap source. This gives us better diagnostics, such as
136          being able to tell if an error occured. Also fixed a bug under
137          FreeBSD where pcap would block until a buffer was full, then
138          would let pcap_next iterate over all of them.
139
140- Version 2.0.14
141        * Added support for pcap decoding of PPP interfaces (DLT_LINUX_SLL)
142          This DLT provides a direction bit, which we make use of in
143          trace_get_direction(). Check the docs for the specifics
144        * Fixed a bug where ERF traces weren't being checked for rxerrors.
145          If the ERF record indicates an rxerror, then get_link() returns
146          NULL.
147        * Removed an extra , which was preventing compilation under gcc 3.4
148          in FreeBSD
149
150- Version 2.0.13
151        * Improved source docs / doxygen
152        * Added functions to retrieve TCP, UDP and ICMP headers encapsulated
153          within the IP sublayer
154          * get_tcp_from_ip()
155          * get_udp_from_ip()
156          * get_icmp_from_ip()
157        * Added trace_get_next_option to parse TCP/IP options within a
158          libtrace_packet object
159       
160
161- Version 2.0.12
162        * check for IP Fragmentation - if so, don't return TCP header on a
163          fragmented packet
164
165- Version 2.0.11
166
167        * Added in a fallback function for strndup under freebsd.
168          Thanks to mjl for this code.
169
170- Version 2.0.10
171        * Removed some badly licensed code.
172
173- Version 2.0.9
174        * Added improved conditional codepaths for
175                * PCAP
176                * ZLIB
177                * BPF
178                * DAG
179          - These sections of code are only compiled in if there is
180            appropriate support for them in the OS / asked by configure.
181            In the event of no zlib support, we use a fread interface for
182            uncompressed trace files instead.
183
184- Version 2.0.8
185        * Added better configure time checking for pcap-bpf.h (ie, actually fail early if it can't find it or an equivalent)
186        * Added trace_set_direction , to set the direction bit in an ERF based trace.
187        * Added trace_truncate_packet, to truncate the packet at a specified length
188
189
190- Version 2.0.7
191        * Assorted bugfixes.
192
193- Version 2.0.3
194        * Fixed packet->size bug for pcap
195
196- Version 2.0.2
197        * Port to AMD64. Should also work on IA64
198        * Will compile cleanly under gcc-2.95 (Debian Woody)
199        * Compiles cleanly under FBSD 4.5 and 5.2.
200
201- Version 2.0.1
202        * Port to FreeBSD. Thanks to Phil Murray for testing this
203
204- Version 2.0.0
205        * Major API change for cleanup purposes.
206                * libtrace_packet_t object used to hold reference to the
207                  trace object, the buffer, and assorted variables
208        * First autoconf release
209       
210- Version 1.1.0
211        * Tagged as REL_1_1_0
212        * First final release tag
