Release Notes: The ability to read and write tcpdump format files was included along with a new and improved mechanism for synchronous packet capture in the core packet capture libraries. Some new functions were included in the utility package, timeval information was made accessible in objects derived from both Packet and RawPacket types, and a few bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: This release adds support for multiple simultaneous instances of the packet capture instance within a single Java VM. The jpcap packet capture engine and graphical visualization tools work on a variety of Unix and Linux platforms, including Mac OS X, Solaris, AIX, Red Hat Linux 7.x, 8.x, 9.x, Fedora Core 1, and others.
Release Notes: This release adds Mac OS X support and has been tested on a variety of Unix platforms. A binary distribution of a network packet visualization tool utilizing the library is available in RPM format. The tool works on a variety of Linux platforms, including Red Hat 7.x, 8.x, and 9.x.
Release Notes: This release incorporates changes submitted by the community. An alternate synchronous capture mechanism is now supported, and capture performance is significantly improved. The network traffic visualization tools are available in binary RPM format. Developers utilizing the capture API can build the interface using make or ant.
Release Notes: A fix for a memory leak in the libpcap native binding code, and addition of missing accessors and storage for packet headers and data for several protocol types in the network library.
Release Notes: This release incorporates changes submitted by the open source community. Reading tcpdump-formatted packet capture files is now supported, and new methods which provide more convenient access to specific packet type headers and data are provided. Several bugs are fixed, including a buffer overrun which can occur when capturing TCP packets containing header option fields.
Release Notes: This release adds support for the Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP), several new commands to the capture console, and packet support for IP and TCP header options. Support for building on Solaris platforms is improved, and exception handling in native code is more robust.
Release Notes: Support for many new link-layer types other than Ethernet (including Linux cooked sockets) in order to successfully capture packets from the pseudo-device 'any', and enhancements to the sample client, including the display and real-time update of packet and byte counts on communication vectors in the visualization client.
Release Notes: This release fixes open bugs and adds Javadoc documentation to the distribution. The core packet capture library has stabilized, with no recent interface changes. Binary RPMs are now available for intel and Alpha AXP architecture machines. Source RPMs are available for other platforms. JDK1.2+ and libpcap are required.
