67 pcap_datalink() when reading pcap-ng files
68 Add support for "wlan ra" and "wlan ta", to check the RA and TA

70 Don't crash if "wlan addr{1,2,3,4}" are used without 802.11
71 headers
72 Do filtering on USB and Bluetooth capturing
73 On FreeBSD/SPARC64, use -fPIC - it's apparently necessary
74 Check for valid port numbers (fit in a 16-bit unsigned field) in

109 Fix compiler warnings and builds on some platforms
110 Update config.guess and config.sub
111 Support monitor mode on mac80211 devices on Linux
112 Fix USB memory-mapped capturing on Linux; it requires a new DLT_
113 value
114 On Linux, scan /sys/class/net for devices if we have it; scan
115 it, or /proc/net/dev if we don't have /sys/class/net, even if
116 we have getifaddrs(), as it'll find interfaces with no
117 addresses
118 Add limited support for reading pcap-ng files

124 Hyphenate "link-layer" everywhere

126 In pcap_read_linux_mmap(), if there are no frames available, call
127 poll() even if we're in non-blocking mode, so we pick up
128 errors, and check for the errors in question.
129 Note that poll() works on BPF devices is Snow Leopard
130 If an ENXIO or ENETDOWN is received, it may mean the device has
131 gone away. Deal with it.
132 For BPF, raise the default capture buffer size to from 32k to 512k
133 Support ps_ifdrop on Linux
134 Added a bunch of #ifdef directives to make wpcap.dll (WinPcap) compile

159 attempt to open it in Monitor mode
160 Add support for snapshot length for USB Memory-Mapped Interface
161 Fix configure and build on recent Linux kernels
162 Fix memory-mapped Linux capture to support pcap_next() and

186 Fix dynamic library support on OSX
187 Return PCAP_ERROR_IFACE_NOT_UP if the interface isn't 'UP', so applications
188 can print better diagnostic information
189 Return PCAP_ERROR_PERM_DENIED if we don't have permission to open a device, so
190 applications can tell the user they need to go play with permissions
191 On Linux, ignore ENETDOWN so we can continue to capture packets if the
192 interface goes down and comes back up again.
193 On Linux, support new tpacket frame headers (2.6.27+)
a85e14b0 194 On Mac OS X, add scripts for changing permissions on /dev/bpf* and launchd plist

337Tuesday January 9, 2001. Summary for 0.6 release
339 New Linux libpcap implementation, which, in 2.2 and later
340 kernels, uses PF_PACKET sockets and supports kernel packet
341 filtering (if compiled into the kernel), and supports the "any"
342 device for capturing on all interfaces. Cleans up promiscuous
343 mode better on pre-2.2 kernels, and has various other fixes
344 (handles 2.4 ARPHRD_IEEE802_TR, handles ISDN devices better,
345 doesn't show duplicate packets on loopback interface, etc.).
347 Fixed HP-UX libpcap implementation to correctly get the PPA for
348 an interface, to allow interfaces to be opened by interface name.
350 libpcap savefiles have system-independent link-layer type values
351 in the header, rather than sometimes platform-dependent DLT_
352 values, to make it easier to exchange capture files between
353 different OSes.
355 Non-standard capture files produced by some Linux tcpdumps, e.g.
356 the one from Red Hat Linux 6.2 and later, can now be read.
358 Updated autoconf stock files.
360 Filter expressions can filter on VLAN IDs and various OSI
361 protocols, and work on Token Ring (with non-source-routed
362 packets).
364 "pcap_open_dead()" added to allow compiling filter expressions
365 to pcap code without opening a capture device or capture file.
367 Header files fixed to allow use in C++ programs.
369 Removed dependancy on native headers for packet layout.
370 Removed Linux specific headers that were shipped.
372 Security fixes: Strcpy replaced with strlcpy, sprintf replaced
373 with snprintf.
375 Fixed bug that could cause subsequent "pcap_compile()"s to fail
376 erroneously after one compile failed.
378 Assorted other bug fixes.
380 README.aix and README.linux files added to describe
381 platform-specific issues.
383 "getifaddrs()" rather than SIOCGIFCONF used, if available.
385v0.5 Sat Jun 10 11:09:15 PDT 2000
388- Brought in KAME IPv6/IPsec bpf compiler.
389- Fixes for NetBSD.
390- Support added for OpenBSD DLT_LOOP and BSD/OS DLT_C_HDLC (Cisco HDLC),
391 and changes to work around different BSDs having different DLT_ types
392 with the same numeric value.
394Assar Westerlund <>
395- Building outside the source code tree fixed.
396- Changed to write out time stamps with 32-bit seconds and microseconds
397 fields, regardless of whether those fields are 32 bits or 64 bits in
398 the OS's native "struct timeval".
399- Changed "pcap_lookupdev()" to dynamically grow the buffer into which
400 the list of interfaces is read as necessary in order to hold the
401 entire list.
403Greg Troxel <>
404- Added a new "pcap_compile_nopcap()", which lets you compile a filter
405 expression into a BPF program without having an open live capture or
406 capture file.
408v0.4 Sat Jul 25 12:40:09 PDT 1998
410- Fix endian problem with DLT_NULL devices. From FreeBSD via Bill
411 Fenner (

417 bug report by (Bruce Barnett). Also added
418 options to disable gcc and to force a particular packet capture type.
420- Added support for Fore ATM interfaces (qaa and fa) under IRIX. Thanks
421 to John Hawkinson (
423- Change Linux PPP and SLIP to use DLT_RAW since the kernel does not
424 supply any "link layer" data.
426- Change Linux to use SIOCGIFHWADDR ioctl to determine link layer type.
427 Thanks to Thomas Sailer (
429- Change IRIX PPP to use DLT_RAW since the kernel does not supply any
430 "link layer" data.

475 timeouts.
477- Changed ISLOOPBACK() macro when IFF_LOOPBACK isn't available to check
478 for "lo" followed by an eos or digit (newer versions of Linux
479 apparently call the loopback "lo" instead of "lo0").
481- Fixed Linux networking include files to use ints instead of longs to
482 avoid problems with 64 bit longs on the alpha. Thanks to Cristian
483 Gafton (

567v0.1 Fri Apr 28 18:11:03 PDT 1995
569- Fixed compiler and optimizer bugs. The BPF filter engine uses unsigned
570 comparison operators, while the code generator and optimizer assumed
571 signed semantics in several places. Thanks to Charlie Slater
572 ( for pointing this out.
574- Removed FDDI ifdef's, they aren't really needed. Resulted from report
