38 Documentation:
39 Refine Markdown in
40 Improve the description of portrange in filters.
41 isn't Markdown, rename it just README.linux.
42 pcapng:
43 Support reading version 1.2, which some writers produce, and which
44 is the same as 1.0 (some new block types were added, but
45 that's not sufficient reason to bump the minor version number,
46 as code that understands those new block types can handle them
47 in a 1.0 file)
48 Linux:
49 Drop support for text-mode USB captures, as we require a 2.6.27
50 or later kernel (credit to Chaoyuan Peng for noting the
51 sscanf vulnerabilities in the text-mode code that got me to
52 realize that we didn't need this code any more)
53 Bluetooth: fix non-blocking mode.
54 Don't assume that all compilers used to build for Linux support
55 the __atomic builtins
56 Windows:
57 Add more information in "interface disappeared" error messages, in
58 the hopes of trying to figure out the cause.
59 Treat ERROR_DEVICE_REMOVED as "device was removed".
60 Indicate in the error message which "device was removed" error
61 occurred.
62 Report the Windows error status if PacketSendPacket() fails.
63 Use %lu for ULONGs in error message formats.
64 Don't treat the inability to find airpcap.dll as an error.
65 Ignore spurious error reports by Microsoft Surface mobile
66 telephony modem driver
67 rpcap:
68 Clean up error checking and error messages for server address
69 lookup.

668 errors, and check for the errors in question.
669 Note that poll() works on BPF devices is Snow Leopard
670 If an ENXIO or ENETDOWN is received, it may mean the device has
671 gone away. Deal with it.
672 For BPF, raise the default capture buffer size to from 32k to 512k

728 can print better diagnostic information
729 Return PCAP_ERROR_PERM_DENIED if we don't have permission to open a device, so
730 applications can tell the user they need to go play with permissions
731 On Linux, ignore ENETDOWN so we can continue to capture packets if the
732 interface goes down and comes back up again.
733 On Linux, support new tpacket frame headers (2.6.27+)

877 Tuesday January 9, 2001. Summary for 0.6 release
879 New Linux libpcap implementation, which, in 2.2 and later
880 kernels, uses PF_PACKET sockets and supports kernel packet
881 filtering (if compiled into the kernel), and supports the "any"
882 device for capturing on all interfaces. Cleans up promiscuous
883 mode better on pre-2.2 kernels, and has various other fixes
884 (handles 2.4 ARPHRD_IEEE802_TR, handles ISDN devices better,
885 doesn't show duplicate packets on loopback interface, etc.).
887 Fixed HP-UX libpcap implementation to correctly get the PPA for
888 an interface, to allow interfaces to be opened by interface name.
890 libpcap savefiles have system-independent link-layer type values
891 in the header, rather than sometimes platform-dependent DLT_
892 values, to make it easier to exchange capture files between
893 different OSes.
895 Non-standard capture files produced by some Linux tcpdumps, e.g.
896 the one from Red Hat Linux 6.2 and later, can now be read.
898 Updated autoconf stock files.
900 Filter expressions can filter on VLAN IDs and various OSI
901 protocols, and work on Token Ring (with non-source-routed
902 packets).
904 "pcap_open_dead()" added to allow compiling filter expressions
905 to pcap code without opening a capture device or capture file.
907 Header files fixed to allow use in C++ programs.
909 Removed dependency on native headers for packet layout.
910 Removed Linux specific headers that were shipped.
912 Security fixes: Strcpy replaced with strlcpy, sprintf replaced
913 with snprintf.
915 Fixed bug that could cause subsequent "pcap_compile()"s to fail
916 erroneously after one compile failed.
918 Assorted other bug fixes.
920 README.aix and README.linux files added to describe
921 platform-specific issues.
923 "getifaddrs()" rather than SIOCGIFCONF used, if available.

928 - Brought in KAME IPv6/IPsec bpf compiler.
929 - Fixes for NetBSD.

934 Assar Westerlund <>
935 - Building outside the source code tree fixed.
936 - Changed to write out time stamps with 32-bit seconds and microseconds
937 fields, regardless of whether those fields are 32 bits or 64 bits in
938 the OS's native "struct timeval".
939 - Changed "pcap_lookupdev()" to dynamically grow the buffer into which
940 the list of interfaces is read as necessary in order to hold the
941 entire list.
943 Greg Troxel <>
944 - Added a new "pcap_compile_nopcap()", which lets you compile a filter
945 expression into a BPF program without having an open live capture or
946 capture file.
948 v0.4 Sat Jul 25 12:40:09 PDT 1998
950 - Fix endian problem with DLT_NULL devices. From FreeBSD via Bill

957 bug report by (Bruce Barnett). Also added
958 options to disable gcc and to force a particular packet capture type.
960 - Added support for Fore ATM interfaces (qaa and fa) under IRIX. Thanks
961 to John Hawkinson (
963 - Change Linux PPP and SLIP to use DLT_RAW since the kernel does not
964 supply any "link layer" data.
966 - Change Linux to use SIOCGIFHWADDR ioctl to determine link layer type.
967 Thanks to Thomas Sailer (
969 - Change IRIX PPP to use DLT_RAW since the kernel does not supply any

973 formats.

1015 timeouts.
1017 - Changed ISLOOPBACK() macro when IFF_LOOPBACK isn't available to check
1018 for "lo" followed by an eos or digit (newer versions of Linux
1019 apparently call the loopback "lo" instead of "lo0").
1021 - Fixed Linux networking include files to use ints instead of longs to
1022 avoid problems with 64 bit longs on the alpha. Thanks to Cristian
1023 Gafton (
