Release Notes: Compiler warnings have been fixed. Compatibility with ncurses 5.8 has been added to the "noping" application. If installing as root, required privileges are now automatically assigned to the binaries.
Release Notes: The accuracy of timing Information has been improved on systems that provide the SO_TIMESTAMP socket option.
Release Notes: An alias for the "Voice Admit" PHB (RFC 5865) has been added to the QoS option of oping. Compiler errors have been fixed and outdated documentation has been updated.
Release Notes: The ability to set the Quality of Service (QoS) byte of outgoing packets and read the QoS byte of incoming packets has been added the library. Support for this feature has been added to the oping and noping command line utilities. The license of the library has been changed to LGPL 2.1.
Release Notes: A new ncurses-based front-end to liboping, called noping, has been added. The new command line application displays ping statistics "live" and highlights aberrant round-trip times.
Release Notes: Handling of sockets with error conditions has been improved. Previously, such an error could lead to indefinite busy looping. The oping utility has been improved to allow reading from files even when running SetUID-root. Privileges are dropped temporarily when supported by the system. An off-by-one error has been fixed in the Perl bindings.
Release Notes: The ability to specify the network device to use has been added to the library. The included “oping” application has been enhanced to provide this functionality and allow reading hostnames from a file or standard input. Argument checking has been improved and a bug which could lead to incorrect measurements has been fixed.
Release Notes: Portability fixes for Solaris have been applied: liboping is now linked against libxnet if available.
Release Notes: The possibility to query the Time to Live (TTL) of received packets has been added. The "oping" application has also been updated to print this information. The ability to set the TTL of outgoing packets has been added.
Release Notes: Some bugs and portability problems have been fixed. The possibility to retrieve the number of timed out packets has been added. The Net::Oping Perl module is now included in the source code distribution.
