2013-11-22  George Neville-Neil  <gnn@neville-neil.com>, Wojciech Owczarek <wojciech@owczarek.co.uk>

	* 2.3.0 release

	* New Features:
	
	- IEEE 802.3 Support
	- Support for reading from the Berkeley Packet Filter, resulting in lower jitter
	- Configuration file support, multiple previously unsupported options
	- Rewritten command line parameter handling, new parameters
	- Command line options to print default configuration, print lock file,	check configuration and more,
	- Full help (-H) for all configuration options,
	- Configuration reload support with SIGHUP,
	- Rewritten logging subsystem, 
	- Separate log file and statistics file, SIGHUP reprints the headers
  	- Support for mode and interface specific lock files
	- Network interface checks before startup and during config reload
	- Added ./configure --sigusr2=counters - will dump PTP engine countersto current log target when SIGUSR2 received
	- Support for presets - groups of PTP protocol options defining	ptpd behaviour
		presets available: slaveonly, masteronly, masterslave
	- Support for tick adjustment as well as frequency
		maximum frequency offset is now configurable and can be above 512 ppm - tick is used above 512 ppm,
	- Added a compatibility option to always honour the UTC offset announced by a GM when in slave state
	- Added an announce receipt timeout "grace period" for slave state
	  	slave can wait n times timeout without fully resetting
	  	allows a seamless failover without resetting delay values etc.,
	- Added support for DELAY_DISABLED delay mode - syntonisation only
	- Initial support for informing the clock subsystem about the sync status
		STA_UNSYNC is unset when adjusting the clock (allows syncing hardware RTC clocks with the system clock)
		also maxerror and esterror are set,
	- Support for RTC clock control on Linux
	- Support for legacy command line switches from previous versions
	- Configurable log level for normal logs, not only debug logs.
	- Generic log file handler mechanism with a simple built-in logrotate implementation
		for each log file container you can specify max size and max number of files
	- Extensive support for realtime statistics
	  	online long term statistics and moving statistics 
	  	mean and std dev. 
	  		Some new features included depend on statistics support, enabled with the --enable-statistics
	  		configure switch. Statistics rely on double precision so may be disabled for simple embedded systems
	- Outlier filters based on Peirce's criterion 
	  blocks / filters spikes from delayMS and delaySM 
	- Generic PI controler model
	- P and I components changed from attenuations to gains
	- Double precision servo allows for tighter clock control
	- Clock stabilisation detection based on the standard dev of observed drift
	- Clock "calibration delay" 
		allows a configurable delay between seeing a GM for the first time and enabling clock control
	- Realtime statistics - mean and std dev of one-way delay, ofm and observed drift
	- Status file: one-screen dump of information about the current state of ptpd, updated in configurable intervals.
	- Support for "panic mode"
		if ptpd sees offset from master above 1 second, it will pause clock updates for a given amount of time
	- NTPd integration and failover
		ptpd can now connect to local ntpd using mode 7 packets (code derived from ntpdc)
	  	and using authenticated requests can enable/disable ntpd clock control.
	  		Enable with configure --enable-ntpdc
	- Dump counters + clear counters using a SIGUSR2 handler to dump all counters to the log file
	  	configure --enable-sigusr2=counters
	- Support for ACLs for management and timing messages
	- Basic support for SO_TIMESTAMPING (RX, TX) on Linux
	- Support for non-Ethernet interfaces on Linux (Infiniband, GRE etc.)
	- Support for offset / delay asymmetry correction
	- Ptpd can now prefer or require GMs with valid UTC time
	- Support for setting IP DSCP values
	- Periodic IGMP joins also in master mode - improved robustness against network port failures
	- Support for binding PTPd to a CPU core
	- Control over tick rate on Linux, allowing faster clock slewing if needed


	  		  
	* Bug fixes:
	
	- TTL no longer defaults to 64 in P2P mode - in P2P it's set to 1,
	- Fixed an issue whereby observed drift would be reset to 0 if it
	  could not be read from the drift file (empty or nonexistent drift file),
	  now the kernel value is used if read from file fails.
	 - Support for updating utmp/wtmp when stepping the clock (FR #38)
	 - Mean Path Delay filtering now done in float (patch #49)
	 - Multiple other SourceForge bugs closed: Bugs closed:

		    #25, #34, #26, #42, #39, #33, #46, #45, #28, 
		    #27, #48, #54, #47, #40, #37, #53, #50, #52, #59, #60 
	
	* Cleanups and other changes:
	
	- Major startup.c cleanup, removed the parallel daemon checks,
	  in favour of better lock handling and the automatic lock file
	  name support,
	- Some minor refactoring,
	- Added a TimePropertiesDS structure and removed its fields
	  from PtpClock
	- Improved log file format with full date and interface name,
	  removed the "===" indents
	- Delay Request interval no longer mandatory in hybrid mode,
	  but a warning will be issued if it's not explicitly defined -
	  default of 0 is used,
	- Removed the experimental status of hybrid mode,
	- Manual stepping of the clock no longer just resets the observed
	  drift: resets it or restores it based on the drift handling setting,
	  and sets the time immediately before writing any logs - this allows
	  to re-sync and stabilise time almost instantly
	- Up to date man pages written
	  
2012-06-20  George Neville-Neil  <gnn@neville-neil.com>

	- improvements in parallel daemons checking
	- command line parameters are dumped at init
	- Set the unicast flag when sending unicast packets
	  (experimental, hybrid mode only).
