    Release Notes: This release fixes another remotely triggerable NULL dereference in ip_fragment.c. An unofficial patch enables tracking of already established TCP connections. Missing reset of some tcp_* variables upon nids_exit has been fixed. This release has correct calculation of the radiotap header, compilation warning fixes with newer gcc, and uses pcap_get_selectable_fd() instead of pcap_fileno().

      Release Notes: More externals were added to access libnids' intrinsics from the outside. nids_unregister_*() functions were added. UDP checksumming was fixed. nids_params.tcp_workarounds was added. For nids_params.multiproc and queue_limit, a patch was applied which creates a separate thread for packet capture. In killtcp.c, two more RST packets are sent (which is required because of the MS05-019 patch). A glibc 2.4 syslog.h disaster workaround was made.

        Release Notes: This release adds wscale option parsing. It adds nids_dispatch() for systems that do not ignore pcap timeout, and the ability to specify hosts/networks for which checksums are not checked.

          Release Notes: This version fixed signed/unsigned comparisons that could cause crashes in TCP option parsing. The PCAP header of the last received packet is now exported along with the timeout parameter to pcap_open_live. DLT_PRISM_HEADER and DLT_PPP_SERIAL are now supported, and dataless ACKs are now let through. The raw_init() prototype was fixed, and %edi is used instead of %ebx in csum_partial to resolve issues with GCC 3.5. Inline assembly was cleaned up, and a bug where queued FIN segments were not processed properly was fixed.

            Release Notes: Starting with version 1.18, libnids discards TCP packets with old timestamps, which is required to pass "fragroute" tests. Memory corruption which could be caused by overlarge TCP packets has been fixed. checksum.c has been adjusted to not use multiline literals (for gcc 3.3). In configure.in, compilation is attempted even if libnet files are found; there is another library with the same name. A bug has been fixed in "collect" field handling where if you did collect-- and then collect++ (which is rare) you would get a single junk packet.

              Release Notes: Solaris compilation and runtime errors have been fixed. A security problem with source routed IP frames was fixed. Some new interface features were added, simplifying application coding.

                Release Notes: A bunch of small bugfixes and new features, support to capture packets on all interfaces using libpcap 0.5, and new libc5 and Alpha platform support.
