Release Notes: The GNU libtool versioning system is used. A pkgconfig file is installed. The function get_snaplen() has been moved to class Pcap. There's a new function Pcap::get_filter(). Now libpcap++ is compatible (only) with libpcap >= 0.8. There are two new functions, get_major_version() and get_minor_version(), in PcapOffline. More DLTs have been added. Some names of the DataLink::Type enum have been changed to match those defined by libpcap. A segmentation fault in Pcap::set_filter() has been fixed. The functions get_promiscuous() and get_nonblock() in PcapLive have been renamed to is_promiscuous() and is_nonblock().
Release Notes: A Doxygen-generated API reference is installed. Now all accessor member functions start with "get_". cobj() methods have been added for the classes Stats, Address, Dumper, and Pcap (replacing get_pcap_t()). The interface of DataLink has changed. A new type, Pcap::Netmask, has been added. The function Packet::manage() has been added. An undefined reference to Dumper::STD_OUTPUT has been fixed.
