Version 2.4.0: 2019-08-28
=========================

Enhanced the output of ipfixDump by (1) including the template's name with its
list of elements, (2) adding the templates' names to the stats output, (3)
marking scope elements in templates and their corresponding values in data
records, and (4) including the name for list semantics.

Fixed an issue in the libfixbuf.spec.in file, and removed the generated
libfixbuf.spec file from the distribution.

Changed how the information model handles the re-insertion an existing
element to reuse the existing element instead of using new memory.

Added stricter checking of the elements lengths' specified in a template.
Currently a log message is written for an invalid length; in the future, this
may cause the template to be rejected.

Version 2.3.1: 2019-04-18
=========================

Fixed a double-freeing of memory and memory leaks in some of the error
handling code.

Version 2.3.0: 2019-03-18
=========================

Added the ipfixDump application which used to be included with YAF, and made
many changes to the application.  Use configure --disable-tools to prevent
building and installing ipfixDump.

Fixed bugs in reading and writing information elements whose type was list and
elementId was a value other than 291, 292, or 293.

Changed the layout of the options templates used for exporting RFC 5610
information element type information and exporting template metadata.

Version 2.2.0: 2018-11-29
=========================

Added functions to return the buffer size required to read a template and the
maximum buffer size to process all known templates in a session.

Modified library to return an error when a user attempts to use a reserved
template ID.

Fixed a potential use-after-free bug triggered by pyfixbuf.

Version 2.1.0: 2018-07-12
=========================

Added functions to update the Information Model with Information Elements read
from a file or a string containing XML data.

Ensured that an element's endian flag is properly set when incorporating
elements from options records.

Made GLib 2.18 or later a requirement.

Version 2.0.0: 2018-05-02
=========================

This version is not backwards-compatible with fixbuf 1.x.

There are no functional differences between this release and the 1.8
release. All the changes are API changes and internal cleanups.

Changed the source for the Information Model to the IANA XML version of the
IPFIX Information Elements.

Added a requirement for internal templates that their information element
specifications have non-defaulted (non-zero) sizes.

Simplified the new template callbacks, subsuming the three variants with one:
fbSessionAddNewTemplateCallback()

Made it the default to consider the source port when separating incoming UDP
streams.  The function fbCollectorManageUDPStreamByPort() has been removed.

Changed fbInfoElementWriteOptionsRecord() to take both the internal and
external template id.

Updated license to LGPL 3.

three new data types.

Added new data type: fbBasicList_t to house fixbuf "basicLists."

Added new data type: fbSubTemplateList_t to house fixbuf "subTemplateLists."

Added new data type: fbSubTemplateMultiList_t to house fixbuf
"subTemplateMultiLists."

Added the functionality to handle multiple listeners, allowing for connections
on multiple ports.

Support for Netflow V9.

Spread support has been expanded to allow for greater flexibility in using one
exporter to publish to multiple groups.

Templates are now managed on a per-group basis for a Spread exporter.

Templates can now be multicasted to select Spread groups.

Default Automatic Mode for Listeners is now set to true.

=========================

Added support for Spread Toolkit to allow publish subscribe distribution of
YAF sensor output.

Version 0.8.0: 2008-09-09
=========================

Addition of NetFlow v9 input translation on network connections.  NetFlow v9
only works as a collector (listener) and only over UDP.  (Most of those
limitations are related to the nature of the NetFlow protocol itself.)

Version 0.7.2: 2008-01-18
=========================

Minor build system change required to fix multithreaded fixbuf collection
issues with skipfix in SiLK 0.11.9 and later.

Version 0.7.1: 2007-09-28
=========================

Fixes encoding errors of octet array information elements on little-endian
machines.

Version 0.7.0: 2007-08-17
=========================

Fixes alignment issues on Solaris/SPARC; cross-platform build enhancements;
support for - as stdin/stdout filename; partial flexible stream selection
support; true biflow reverse PEN support.

Version 0.6.0: 2007-05-17
=========================

libfixbuf 0.6.0 completely reorganizes the API to recenter it around an IPFIX
Message Buffer object. It adds new, more flexible interfaces to lower level
transport for building IPFIX Collecting and Exporting Processes, including a
select()-based listener interface for multi-session collectors; support for
SCTP and TLS over TCP as transport protocols; and support for reverse PEN
based bidirectional flow export as in draft-ietf-ipfix-biflow-03. Storage of
IPFIX Messages in files is supported, but the final message and final set
support as in revision -00 of draft-trammell-ipfix-file has been removed.

This release also renames all the calls and data structures to be in line with
the conventions used in the NetSA SiLK codebase, and is therefore completely
incompatible with previous releases; applications must be rewritten to use
fixbuf 0.6.0.

Version 0.5.0: 2006-09-29
=========================

libfixbuf 0.5.0 splits the API into application programming interface and
transport programming interface, and adds new transport layers for TCP, UDP,
and files.

Version 0.4.1: 2006-07-07
=========================

libfixbuf 0.4.1 adds a new Information Element for YAF 0.1.6.

Version 0.4.0: 2006-06-16
=========================

libfixbuf 0.4.0 is a bugfix and feature enhancement release.  The FixSession
structure has been removed, to store templates per FixReader or FixWriter
instance. This was done to support per-session (transient) scoping of template
IDs. This is an incompatible API change; fixbuf applications will have to be
updated to use the new 0.4.0 API.

Version 0.3.2: 2006-03-17
=========================

libfixbuf 0.3.2 is a bugfix release. Transcode plan caching now works
properly.

Version 0.3.1: 2006-03-14
=========================

libfixbuf 0.3.1 is a bugfix and feature enhancement release. Support now
exists for full template table export, to comply with periodic template export
requirements in the IPFIX protocol. Reduced-length information element
encoding is now supported, as well, with full transcoder support for
transcoding between identical information elements of different arbitrary
lengths.

Version 0.3.0: 2006-02-03
=========================

libfixbuf 0.3.0 adds an information element registry, changing the way that
information elements are programmatically added to templates. New information
elements have been added to support YAF. Also new is FixVarfield, a much more
usable interface for transcoding variable-length information elements.
Variable-length transcoding support has been completely rewritten and tested.
fixport and fixcollect have been removed; the upcoming YAF IPFIX export and
collection facility will take their place. Corner-case bugs in the writer and
transcoder have been fixed as well.

Version 0.2.0: 2006-01-06
=========================

libfixbuf 0.2.0 is a redesign of the libfixbuf API, renaming most calls.  It
adds MTU support for splitting record streams into multiple messages, built-in
UDP export and collection support. Two new applications, fixport and
fixcollect, are now provided for UDP export and collection. Additionally, this
version modifies the API for handling private enterprise information elements,
and adds new CERT private enterprise information elements for biflow support
in NAF 0.4.2.

Version 0.1.1: 2005-11-18
=========================

libfixbuf 0.1.1 is a bugfix release, fixing a read buffer reset bug that kept
libfixbuf from reading multiple messages with the same reader.

Version 0.1.0: 2005-10-31
=========================

libfixbuf 0.1.0 splits its session template table into "read" and "write"
sides, to avoid template number space collisions when writing IPFIX filters
using libfixbuf. It also splits calls to its low-level I/O functions to
support future UDP and SCTP low-level I/O for IPFIX compliance. Alpha quality
warnings still apply, though the API should be settling down soon.

Version 0.0.7: 2005-10-03
=========================

libfixbuf 0.0.7 extends the FloCON preview release with Options Template Set
support, (still untested but otherwise complete) variable-length information
element support, and a few new information elements to support NAF 0.0.7. The
library is still undocumented, and should still be considered alpha-quality.

Version 0.0.3: 2005-09-16
=========================

libfixbuf 0.0.3 is the FloCON Developers' Preview Release of libfixbuf. This
revision of libfixbuf is a partial implementation of the IPFIX protocol
message format (as of September 2005) with support for long messages and sets
as outlined in IETF individual draft draft-trammell-ipfix-file-00. Important
features are missing, including:

* Options Template Set support

* Variable-length information element support (partial, untested)

In addition, the API for this version is not documented, because it will
change. Specificially:

* Sessions support for information element registries, including type
  information for each information element number. This will allow libfixbuf
  to handle endian conversion, among other things.

* Transcoder support for information element value translation within the
  context of a message; e.g. relative to absolute flow times, flow times to
  time and duration, etc.

* Any other commentary received on API usability during or after FloCON will
  be considered, and identified issues addressed.

See the README file for more on using libfixbuf.
