*5.1*
 New:

    Building:
      - configure is now generated using autoconf 2.57.
      - The make system now supports "make uninstall"
      - configure & make supports a --with-install-prefix option
      - new configure options to disable building of the agent, apps, ...
        ./configure --help for a list of package sections that can be excluded.
      - new configure option to remove specific code pieces (mib reading, ...)
        ./configure --help for a list of code areas that can be excluded.

    snmpd:
      - linkUp and linkDown notifications can be enabled
        (see the linkUpDownNotifications snmpd.conf token documentation)
      - notifications (traps) can be generated for disman/monitor events.
        (see the snmpd.conf documentation on "monitor" and "notificatonEvent")
      - new snmpd.conf tokens:  includeAllDisks
      - the UCD-DISKIO-MIB will now work on linux.
      - com2sec mappings for SNMP over unix sockets.
      - some speed improvements have been made that should increase the
        speed of the agent's processing time.
      - for mib code using the table iterator, an auto-caching mechanism
        which can greatly speed up access at the cost of caching.
        (see "stash_cache" in the injectHandler token docs in snmpd.conf(5))
      - Some of the agent modules were completely rewritten (and
        should be faster and cleaner).

        (see the snmptrapd.conf manual for details)
      - snmptrapd's new -t switch can be used to disable syslog.
        (useful for a no-output snmptrapd with only traphandle support)

    apps:
      - snmptable sports 3 new options: fixed width, max-repeaters,
        left-justify.  (see snmptable -h for details)
      - mib2c walks you through instructions to help you generate code
        "just for you".  Including some new forms of output code, like
        notification code generation.  Run mib2c SOMETHING for details.

    - net-snmp-config --ldflags properly supplies -L flags
    - misc make test fixes and improvements.

*5.0.4*

   During the testing for release 5.0.4, a release candidate was uploaded
   to Sourceforge and marked as hidden. For variouse reasons, the release
   was delayed and further changes and fixes were made.  However, the 
   release candidate files still appeared on the public FTP server and our
   mirrors. To avoid the confusion that could occur to users who may have
   downloaded this release candidate, we are bumping the revision number
   to 5.0.5.  If you downloaded net-snmp-5.0.4.tar.gz, please upgrade
   to net-snmp-5.0.5.tar.gz.

    - various documentation clean ups.
    - 64 bit address clean ups.
    - misc other bug fixes.

*5.0*

 New:

    - Much of the agent internals were completely rewritten and sports
      a new module API to make your life easier.  See the
      agent/mibgroup/examples directory for example code that makes
      use of some of the new functionality.
      (Also see http://www.net-snmp.org/tutorial-5/agent/ which has
      some incomplete documentation)
    - The agent sports embedded perl, see the perl details further below.
    - The agent supports multiple SNMPv3 contexts and mib modules can
      now register themselves under different contexts.  (see the -n
      option in the snmpcmd manual page for details on specifying
      context strings in requests)
    - The proxy code has been completely rewritten and now supports
      the use of SNMPv3 contexts to help select which proxied host you
      wish to talk to.  See the snmpd.conf manual page.
    - All the tools take --configToken=value options now.  (see -H
      output from any command for what configTokens it accepts)
    - All the tools can speak over many different transport layers
      now, including UDP/TCP (ipv4 and ipv6), AAL5pvc, and IPX.  See
      ./configure --help for details on enabling them.
      Note: the -p and -T flags to all the applications have been
      removed.  Use hostname strings like "tcp:localhost:9999"
      instead.  See the snmpcmd manual page for details.
    - snmptrapd now acts as an agentx subagent and implements portions
      of the NOTIFICATION-LOG-MIB to allow captured traps and informs
      to be queried.
    - A "net-snmp-config" script will get installed which can report
      how the various tools were built (which libraries they were
      linked against, etc).  It will also help you do other things as
      well, like setting up snmpv3.  Run net-snmp-config --help for details.
    - kerberos authenticated and encrypted SNMPv3 is now possible.
      See ./configure --help for details on enabling the ksm security module.
    - The AgentX subagent protocol implementation has many new
      features and fixes.
    - mib2c was completely rewritten and has a much improved
      configuration file specification.
    - Much of the code is getting documented with "doxygen" style
      documentation.  Run "make docs" if you have doxygen installed.
    - some RMON support is available.
      (See agent/mibgroup/Rmon/README for details.)
    - The source tree has been reorganized and all the exported header
      files are now in the include subdirectory.  You can now point to
      the includes easily without having to run "make install" first.
    - the agent now requires a configuration file to access any information.
    - The entire code base has had indent run on it to effect a
      consistent coding style.  See the CodingStyle file for details.

 Perl:
    
    - The SNMP perl module now calls init_snmp() like real net-snmp
      applications, which means it will read snmp.conf configuration
      files, etc.
    - new perl specific configure options --with-perl-modules &
      --enable-embedded-perl.  See ./configure --help for details.
    - The beginnings of some new Perl modules (alpha level quality)
      are in the perl directory, including:
      - NetSNMP::agent which allows perl scripts to become net-snmp
        master or subagents
      - AnyData::SNMP is available that implements a perl DBI
        interface to map SQL commands to SNMP.  Included is a "netsh"
        shell where SQL commands can be typed, aliases created, etc.
        See the perl/AnyData_SNMP/INSTALL file for details.
    - Beginning (alpha level quality) support for embedding perl
      subroutines directly within the net-snmp agent.

      (see snmptrapd.conf(5))
    - More configuration files have been created and can be used to
      specify defaults and configuration information to the various
      applications.  Run each command with -H to see what it understands.
      (see snmp_config(5), snmpd.conf(5), snmp.conf(5), snmptrapd.conf(5))

      exists.  See the snmpd.conf file for how to control access via
      community names now.
    - The header file #defines have changed.  You may have to compile
      third party applications with -DCMU_COMPATIBLE (like perl-SNMP <= V1.7).
    - The parser is more strict about unlinked OIDs and end-of-comment
      conditions.  You may see problems in a few broken mibs that used
      to parse ok with the older parser.

 Ports:
    - irix 6.2 support improved.
    - openbsd.
    - the host resources mib compiles on Solaris.

*3.3.1*

 New:
    - "make install" installs the library and header files.

 Fixes:
    - compilation on many architectures (sunos for example).
    - snmptrapd doesn't exit if v2party files don't exist.
    - host resources works a bit better (ie, it compiles) under solaris.
    

*3.3*

  Path changes:

      changed to /usr/local/share/snmp (set differently using --datadir).
    - the default path of the snmpd and snmptrapd have changed to
      /usr/local/sbin (set differently using --sbindir).

  New:
    - basic SNMPV2c support.  
      - Not fully tested (feedback please!), and not RFC compliant.
      - all apps require '-v 2c' for v2c and '-v 2p' for the older party code.

  Mainly a bug fix release:
    - fixed another 32/64 bit problem:  returned exit codes on alphas
      were incorrect.

    - snmp_open calls getservbyname only once now, at the request of Gary
      Hayward <gah@dirac.bellcore.com>.  Mainly for Perl users.

  New example file:  EXAMPLE.conf file (created at build time).

  You can now mung with all sorts of numbers in config.h and the
  mib.txt file will be mostly built from it if you change my defaults.
