     credits: SNiFf v0.3 by uLiX
     http://www.s0ftpj.org/bfi/online/bfi10/BFi10-05.html

     tcpick_italian.8)


25 Dec 2004 0.2.0-rc5
*********************

     Gianluigi Spagnuolo (kirash:phreaker.net):

   * Added signal support + statistics (packets sniffed and connection
     tracked) in a similar way to tcpdump.

   * Reorganized tcpick.c

     Francesco Stablum (duskdruid:despammed.com):

   * Added autogen.sh script

   * Fixed bug of `-D' option

     Francesco Stablum (duskdruid:despammed.com):

   * Now '\r' and '\t' characters are printable in 'P' and 'U' modes.

   * MacOSX "BIOCSRTIMEOUT: Invalid argument" bug should be fixed.

   * removed all typedefs. Now structures and unions should be better
     recognizable (now names of types are UPPER-CASE)

   * Added .EDITME files for those people that have troubles with the
     ./configure script


30 Nov 2004 0.2.0-rc2
*********************

     Francesco Stablum (duskdruid:despammed.com):

   * Timeout value is now set by `-X' option, because `-t' will be used
     for timestamps in the future.

   * Filenaming system is now chosen with the `-F' option.

     Artyom Khafizov:

   * `-D num' option will cause tcpick to create subdirectories, each

22 Nov 2004 0.2.0-rc1
*********************

     Artyom Khafizov:

   * Added EXPIRED status for connection tracked with a -t option to

   * Fixed many memory leaks

   * Added a new way to write the stream to files, using directories

   * Added an experimental file naming system

     Buck Huppmann (buckh:pobox.com) and Artyom Khafizov ( both have
     had the same good idea :^D ):

   * Added RESET status for connections tracked. (RST-flagged packets
     will delete the connection).

     Federico Castaneda (F_CASTANEDA:crm.com.ar):

   * Added UDP support

     Francesco Stablum (duskdruid:despammed.com):

   * Debug messages are now available only with the -DTCPICK_DEBUG
     argument given to the compiler.

   * Changed signing key! Please read public_key_message.txt and check
     the revocation certificate public_key_OLD.revoke


08/09/04 0.2.0-devel2
*********************

   * Segmentation fault bug fixed (with `u' tcpick tried to free 2 times
     the same heap address and closed 2 times the same file).  (Saumil
     Shah discovered it)

   * Bugfix: `u' flag of `-w' worked as with `b' flag either if `b'
     wasn't chosen.

07/09/04 0.2.0-devel1
*********************

   * Robert Scheck fixed tcpick manual section in a `printf'

   * Saumil Shah feature request done:

     the flag 'u' to the '-w' option enables tcpick to write sniffed
     data in a unique file, with client and server data mixed together.

     the flag 'b' to the '-w' option enables tcpick to write a banner to
     the unique file that introduces server and client data.


28/08/04 0.1.24
***************

   * BSD support _should_ be completed

   * added "suicide" and "fault" functions

   * some code cleanup

   * fixed netinet/ip.h check bug in the configure script for FreeBSD
     machines

   * fixed hexdump bug

   * fixed reset color. Background color is now not black, but the
     terminal default

   * added the balanced tree to the lookup engine

   * applied patch by GLS to improve compatibility with openbsd 3.5 with
     gcc 2.95.3

   * Now closed connections are freed and delinked; files will be
     closed.

   * Added the -E and -Ef arguments

   * Added the -Tf option

   * Fixed the segmentation bug of the `-y' option

   * added INTERNALS file (should be completed)

03/06/04 0.1.23
***************

   * PFLOG support added by kirash aka GLS

   * patch by Sebastian Prause: "I've created a little patch to make
     tcpick work with pppoe interfaces on NetBSD (which use
     DLT_PPP_ETHER) and wanted to share it, so here it is..."

   * now the options for displaying the payload should be prefixed by -y
     I have added another set of displaying option, that are prefixed
     with -b. The -b options are useful to view data only when
     acknowledged (exactly like data written to files) and with this is
     particularly useful the raw mode (-bR) that you can use if you want
     to redirect data with a pipe to another software.

   * The newline character is suppressed when displaying the payload of
     the packet or an acknowledged stream in the case there are no
     banners except the case of the hexdump's.

   * Added the "-pipe" option, by a wish of loopback. See manpage for
     details.

   * Now you are able to choose to write to file only data of clients or
     servers or both, with the additional flags `C' and `S' to the
     option `-w' (omitted means "both").

   * Many, many changes, code cleanups and improvement made by whyx in
     fragments.c and lookup.c

   * With the new option `-T<number>', it is now possible to track only
     the first <number> connections, the following will be discarded by
     the tracker engine. This is useful for the `-w' and `-b' options;
     for `-y' and `-h' it has no effect, because they aren't part of
     the tracker.

   * In the hexdump+ascii red dots rapresents now the unprintable
     carachter.

   * the length of the payload is now displayed in the packet banner

   * rewritten the core of verify.c and fragments.c

   * now connections with equal ip addresses and ports are stored in
     different files

   * files dumped with tcpick -w* options are now saved vith ".tcpick"
     extension

   * bugfix on datalink.c by kirash aka GLS

   * deleted alloc.c and match.c

   * used the "linux" 8-spaces indentation

   * added packet separator (by a Simone Gianni's wish)

   * added the `-p' flag to avoid to put the network interface in
     promiscuous mode (I'm not sure it works) (by a Simone Gianni's
     wish)

   * Rewritten manpage. Read it! There are lots of changes in the
     options!

   * I have tested tcpick to sniff a file via ftp, and the md5sums were
     equal. The tar.gz archive I have downloaded was more than 2MB
     long. Other tests are confirming me that the newly-written code
     works in the right way.


07/03/04 0.1.22-test2
*********************

   * now output files are opened in "a" (only append) mode

   * now data are written with "fwrite()" + ferror (thanks ^^Gimli^^)

06/02/04 0.1.22-test1
*********************

   * corrected bug in datalinktoa() by sbi!

   * Davide Benini: corrected bug in calling S_calloc with only one
     argument

   * added S_malloc function

   * now data are written with the write() function

28/02/04 0.1.21
***************

   * Added src/ directory for the sources

   * Added a `flags` struct

   * Patch by Penelope Fudd: added `-r' option to read tcpdump
     filedumps: this is a very nice feature :)

   * Improved debugging system with dprintf (thank you ShackaN!)

   * Changed name of the `stack' memory block into `tracker'

   * Increased speed of the connection tracking system by adding many
     return's instruction (instead of using some damned variables like
     `loop_finished' and `result_bool') in verify() and match().

   * Added a "chained" tracker: now it is possible to track an infinite
     number of connections (thank you mainman!)

   * Fixed bug that server file and client file were switched

30/01/04 0.1.20
***************

   * added displaying of unprintable carachters (that are also dots in
     -P option) with red color.

   * added hexdump mode colorizer

   * with option -C2 it is now possible see different colors depending
     on the connection tracked (only status banners) (file colortrack.c)

   * added connection numbering (second field in status banner)

   * added time writing on banners and packet headers(time.c)

15/01/04 0.1.19
***************

   * added <pcap/pcap.h> header support (i.e. trustix)

   * added DLT_PFLOG/DLT_NULL/DLT_RAW/DLT_IEEE802_11 header support
     (not tested!!!)

   * added datalinktooffset function (datalink.c)

   * added Push/Fin/Ack packet support

   * added support for those systems that don't have getopt_long and
     getopt.h     header (was a problem in AIX systems, thank you
     Alberto     'JCN-9000' Varesio)

   * added experimental color option (-C): it is very nice!      It
     should be helpful to read the output of tcpick.

   * added new file colors.c (read code comments to know about the
     original author)

11/01/04 0.1.18
***************

   * fixed ridicolous bug of "resulting_bool==" in match.c

   * fixed FIN-WAIT-2 bad detection

   * added TIME-WAIT status detection
