v4.1.0 (2020-02-08)

  • use SOCK_RAW for an ICMP socket in the unix sockets API (previously used SOCK_DGRAM which did not work) reported by @justinc1 in #358, fixed in #424 by @hannesm

The optional argument ?gateway is of type Ipaddr.V4.t. The new optional labeled argument ~fragment_cache_size specifies the byte size of the IPv4 fragment cache (#420 @hannesm)

  • Do not raise an assertion if an IP frame has extra trailing bytes (#221).

v2.3.0 (2015-03-09)

  • Add ICMPv6 error reporting functions (#101)

  • Add universal IP address converters (#108)

  • Add error_message functions for human-readable errors (#98)

  • Improve debug logging for ICMP Destination Unreachable packets.

  • Filter incoming frames by MAC address to stop sending unnecessary RSTs. (#114)

v2.2.2 (2015-01-11)

  • Readded tracing and ARP fixes which got accidentally reverted in the IPv6 merge. (#96)

  • Remove dependency on uint to avoid the need for a C stub (#92).

v2.2.0 (2014-12-18)

Add IPv6 support. This changeset minimises interface changes to the existing STACKV4 interfaces to facilitate a progressive merge. The only visible interface changes are:

  • IPV4.set_ipv4_* functions have been renamed IPV4.set_ip_* because they are shared between IPV4 and IPV6.

  • IPV4.get_ipv4 and get_ipv4_netmask now return a list of Ipaddr.V4.t (again because this is the common semantics with IPV6.)

  • Several types that had v4 in their names (like IPV4.ipv4addr) have lost that particle.

v2.1.1 (2014-12-12)

  • Improve console printing for the DHCP client to output line breaks properly on Xen consoles.

v2.1.0 (2014-12-07)

  • Build Xen stubs separately, with CFLAGS from mirage-xen 2.1.0+. This allows us to use the red zone under x86_64 Unix again.

  • Adding tracing labels and counters, which introduces a new dependency on the mirage-profile package.

v2.0.3 (2014-12-05)

  • Fixed race waiting for ARP response (#86).

  • Move the the code that configures IPv4 address, netmask and gateways after receiving a successful lease out of the Dhcp_clientv4 module and into Stackv4 (#87)

v2.0.2 (2014-12-01)

  • Add IPv4 multicast to MAC address mapping in IPv4 output processing (#81 from Luke Dunstan).

  • Improve formatting of DHCP console logging, including printing out options (#83).

  • Build with -mno-red-zone on x86_64 to avoid stack corruption on Xen (#80).

v2.0.1 (2014-11-04)

  • Fixed race condition in the signalling between the rx/tx threads under load.

  • Experimentally switch to immediate ACKs in TCPv4 by default instead of delayed ones.

v2.0.0 (2014-11-02)

  • Moved 1s complement checksum C code here from mirage-platform.

  • Depend on Console_unix and Console_xen instead of Console.

  • [socket] Do not return an Eof when writing 0-length buffer (#76).

  • [socket] Accept callbacks now run in async threads instead of being serialised (#75).

v1.1.6 (2014-07-20)

  • Quieten down the stack logging rate by not announcing IPv6 packet discards.

  • Raise exception Bad_option for unparsable or invalid TCPv4 options (#57).

  • Fix linking error with module Tcp_checksum by lifting it into top library (#60).

  • Add opam file to permit easier local pinning, and fix Travis to use this.

v1.1.5 (2014-06-18)

  • Ensure that DHCP completes before the application is started, so that unikernels that establish outgoing connections can do so without a race. (fix from Mindy Preston in #53, followup in #55)

  • Add echo, chargen and discard services into the examples/ directory. (from Mindy Preston in #52).

v1.1.4 (2014-06-03)

  • [tcp] Fully process the last ACK in a 3-way handshake for server connections. This ensures that a FIN is correctly transmitted upon application-initiated connection close. (fix from Mindy Preston in #51).

v1.1.3 (2014-03-01)

  • Expose IPV4 through the STACKV4 interface.

v1.1.2 (2014-03-27)

  • Fix DHCP variable length option parsing for MTU responses, which in turns improves robustness on Amazon EC2 (fix from @yomimono via mirage/mirage-tcpip#48)

v1.1.1 (2014-02-21)

  • Catch and ignore top-level socket exceptions (#219).

  • Set SO_REUSEADDR on listening sockets for Unix (#218).

  • Adapt the Stack interfaces to the v1.1.1 mirage-types interface (see mirage/mirage#226 for details).

v1.1.0 (2014-02-03)

  • Rewrite of the library as a set of functors that parameterize the stack across the V1_LWT module types from Mirage 1.1.x. This removes the need to compile separate Xen and Unix versions of the stack.

v0.9.5 (2013-12-08)

  • Build for either Xen or Unix, depending on the value of the OS envvar.

  • Shift to the mirage-types 0.5.0+ interfaces, which breaks the socket backend (temporarily).

  • Port the direct stack to the new interfaces.

  • Add Travis CI scripts.

v0.9.4 (2013-08-09)

  • Use the Ipaddr external library and remove the Homebrew equivalents in Nettypes.

v0.9.3 (2013-07-18)

  • Changes in module Manager: Removed some functions from the `.mli (plug/unplug) and added some modifications in the way the Manager interacts with the underlying module Netif. The Netif.create function does not take a callback anymore.

v0.9.2 (2013-07-09)

  • Improve TCP state machine for connection teardown.

  • Limit fragment number to 8, and coalesce buffers if it goes higher.

  • Adapt to mirage-platform-0.9.2 API changes.

v0.9.1 (2013-06-12)

  • Depend on mirage-platform-0.9.1 direct tuntap interfaces.

  • Version bump to catch up with mirage-platform.

v0.5.2 (2013-02-08)

  • Encourage scatter-gather I/O all the time, rather than playing tricks with packet header buffers. This simplifies the output path considerably and cuts minor heap allocations down.

  • Install the packed cmx along with the cmxa to ensure that the compiler can do cross-module optimization (this is not a fatal error, but will impact performance if the cmx file is not present).

v0.5.1 (2012-12-20)

  • Update socket stack to use Cstruct 0.6.0 API

v0.5.0 (2012-12-20)

  • Update Cstruct API to 0.6.0

  • [tcp] write now blocks if the write buffer and write window are full

v0.4.1 (2012-12-14)

  • Add iperf self-test that creates two VIFs and transmits across them. This is a useful local test which stresses the bridge code using just one VM.

  • Add support for attaching existing devices when initialising the network manager, via an optional attached parameter.

  • Constrain TCP connect to be a unit Lwt.t instead of a polymorphic return value.

  • Expose IPv4 netmask function.

  • Reduce ARP verbosity to the console.

  • Fix TCP fast recovery to wait until all in-flight packets are acked, rather then exiting early.

v0.4.0 (2012-12-11)

  • Require OCaml-4.00.0 or higher, and add relevant build fixes to deal with module packing.

v0.3.1 (2012-12-10)

  • Fix the DHCP client marshalling for IPv4 addresses.

  • Expose the interface MAC address in the Manager signature.

  • Tweak TCP ISN calculation to be more friendly on a 32-bit host.

  • Add Manager.create ?devs to control the number of Netif devices constructed by default.

  • Add Ethif.set/disable_promiscuous to permit directly tapping a network interface.

v0.3.0 (2012-09-04)

  • Initial public release.
