[3.0.0](https://github.com/NagiosEnterprises/nrpe/releases/tag/nrpe-3.0.0) - 2016-08-01
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
**SECURITY**
* Fix for CVE-2014-2913
* Added function to clean the environment before forking. (John Frickson)

**ENHANCEMENTS**
* Added support for optional config file to check_nrpe. With the new SSL
  parameters, the line was getting long. The config file is specified with
  --config-file=<path> or -f <path> parameters. The config file must look
  like command line options, but the options can be on separate lines. It
  MUST NOT include --config-file (-f), --command (-c) or --args (-a). If any
  options are in both the config file and on the command line, the command line
  options are used.
* make can now add users and groups using "make install-groups-users" (John Frickson)
* Added "nrpe-uninstall" script to the same directory nrpe get installed to (John Frickson)
* Updated code so configure && make will work on AIX, HP-UX, Solaris, OS X.
  There should be no errors or warnings. Let me know if any errors or
  warning appear (John Frickson)
* Added command-line option to prevent forking, since some of the init
  replacements (such as systemd, etc.) don't want daemons to fork (John Frickson)
* Added autoconf macros and additional files to better support multi-platform
  config and compile. The default will still set up to install to
  /usr/local/nagios but I added a new configure option:
  '--enable-install-method=<method>'. If <method> is 'opt', everything will
  install to '/opt/nagios'. If <method> is 'os', installation will be to O/S-
  and distribution-specific locations, such as /usr/sbin, /usr/lib/nagios,
  /etc/nagios, and so on.
* Added additional init and inetd config files to support more systems,
  including SuSE, Debian, Slackware, Gentoo, *BSD, AIX, HP-UX, Solaris, OS X.
* Added listen_queue_size as configuration option (Vadim Antipov, Kaspersky Lab)
* Reworked SSL/TLS. See the README.SSL.md file for full info. (John Frickson)
* Added support for version 3 variable sized packets up to 64KB. nrpe will
  accept either version from check_nrpe. check_nrpe will try to send a
  version 3 packet first, and fall back to version 2. check_nrpe can be forced
  to only send version 2 packets if the switch `-2` is used. (John Frickson)
* Added extended timeout syntax in the -t <secs>:<status> format. (ABrist)

**FIXES**
* Fixed configure to check more places for SSL headers/libs. (John Frickson)
* Added ifdefs for complete_SSL_shutdown to compile without SSL. (Matthew L. Daniel)
* Renamed configure.in to configure.ac and added check for sigaction (John Frickson)
* Replaced all instances of signal() with sigaction() + blocking (John Frickson)
* check_nrpe does not parse passed arguments correctly (John Frickson)
* NRPE should not start if cannot write pid file (John Frickson)
* Fixed out-of-bounds error (return code 255) for some failures (John Frickson)
* Connection Timeout and Connection Refused messages need a new line (Andrew Widdersheim)
* allowed_hosts doesn't work, if one of the hostnames can't be resolved by dns (John Frickson)
* allowed_hosts doesn't work with a hostname resolving to an IPv6 address (John Frickson)
* Return UNKNOWN when issues occur (Andrew Widdersheim)
* NRPE returns OK if check can't be executed (Andrew Widdersheim)
* nrpe 2.15 [regression in Added SRC support on AIX - 2.14] (frphoebus)

------------------
* Fixed error in docs for running under inetd using TCP wrappers
* Replaced old email address in src/netutils.h with new one



1.2.1 - 05/07/2000
------------------
* Removed trapping of SIGCHLD
* Changed wait4() to waitpid() to allow compilation on HP-UX and AIX



1.2.0 - 04/18/2000
------------------
* Server forks twice after accepting a client connection, so as to prevent the
  creation of zombies



1.1.5 - 04/07/2000
------------------
* Fixed a small bug where one debug message was not getting logged properly



1.1.4 - 03/30/2000
------------------
* Added option to disable/enable debug messages using the debug option in the
  config file



1.1.3 - 03/11/2000
------------------
* Changed config file to use an absolute path
* Changed all debug output to use syslog (Rene Klootwijk)
* No convert all data to network order before sending it and convert it back to
  host order when receiving it. This makes it possible to mix Solaris and Linux,  
  e.g. running check_nrpe on Linux and nrpe on Solaris. (Rene Klootwijk)



1.1.2 - 03/07/2000
------------------
* Removed unnecessary code in signal handler routine
* Unused signals are no longer trapper



1.1.1 - 02/28/2000 - RKL
---------------------------
* Modified syslog code to include string describing the error code.
* Changed hardcoded number in signal handler to its name. This prevented nrpe
  to run on Solaris.
* Fixed race condition in accept loop. The result of accept should also be
  checked for EINTR.
* Modified recv and send function calls to compile without warnings on Solaris.
* Modified configure.in,configure and Makefile.in to include nsl and socket libs
  for Solaris.
* Modified the signal handler to reestablish itself after being called.



1.1 - 02/24/2000 - Rene Klootwijk <rene@klootwijk.org>
-----------------
* Added ability to bind nrpe to a specific interface by specifying the address
  of this interface in the nrpe.cfg file (e.g. server_address=192.168.2.3)



1.0   - 02/16/2000
------------------
* Added ability to run as a service under inetd



1.0b6 - 02/01/2000
------------------
* Added configure script
* Netutils functions from the NetSaint plugins is now used
* Reset SIGCHLD to default behavior before calling popen() to
  prevent race condition with pclose() (Reported by Rene Klootwijk)
* Cleaned up code



1.0b5 - 01/10/2000
------------------
* Added init script contributed by Jacob L
* Incorporated syslog code and other patches contributed by Jacob L



1.0b4 - 11/04/1999
------------------
* Changed 'allowed_ip' option in configuration file to
  'allowed_hosts' and added support for multiple hosts
* Minor buffer overflow protection fixes
* main() returned STATE_UNKNOWN on successful launch, changed to STATE_OK (jaclu@grm.se)
* Added syslog support (jaclu@grm.se)
