- upgraded to
  - support for SCTP stream sockets, raw interface, and generic sockets.

- Update to version
  + exec:...,pty did not kill child process under some circumstances; fixed
    by correcting typo in xio-progcall.c
  + service name resolution failed due to byte order mistake
  + socat would hang when invoked with many file descriptors already opened
    fix: replaced FOPEN_MAX with FD_SETSIZE
  + fixed bugs where sub processes would become zombies because the master
    process did not catch SIGCHLD. this affected addresses UDP-LISTEN,
  + fixed a bug where sub processes would become zombies because the master
    process caught SIGCHLD but did not wait(). this affected addresses
  + corrected option handling with STDIO; usecase: cool-write
  + configure --disable-pty  also disabled option waitlock
  + fixed small bugs on systems with struct ip_mreq without struct ip_mreqn
- Update to version
  + new addresses IP-DATAGRAM and UDP-DATAGRAM allow versatile broadcast
    and multicast modes 
  + new option ip-add-membership for control of multicast group membership
  + new address TUN for generation of Linux TUN/TAP pseudo network
    interfaces (suggested by Mat Caughron); associated options tun-device,
    tun-name, tun-type; iff-up, iff-promisc, iff-noarp, iff-no-pi etc.
    ABSTRACT-RECV, and ABSTRACT-RECVFROM for abstract UNIX domain addresses
    on Linux (requested by Zeeshan Ali); option unix-tightsocklen controls
    socklen parameter on system calls.
  + option end-close for control of connection closing allows FD sharing
    by sub processes
  + range option supports form address:mask with IPv4
  + changed behaviour of SSL-LISTEN to require and verify client
    certificate per default
  + options f-setlkw-rd, f-setlkw-wr, f-setlk-rd, f-setlk-wr allow finer
    grained locking on regular files
  + fixed bug where only first tcpwrap option was applied; fixed bug where
    tcpwrap IPv6 check always failed
    and fixing this bug) 
  + filan (and socat -D) could hang when a socket was involved
  + corrected PTYs on HP-UX (and maybe others) using STREAMS
  + correct bind with udp6-listen
  + corrected filan.c peekbuff[0] which did not compile with Sun Studio Pro
  + corrected problem with read data buffered in OpenSSL layer
  + corrected problem with option readbytes when input stream stayed idle
    after so many bytes
  + fixed a bug where a datagram receiver with option fork could fork two
    sub processes per packet
- Don't call as it doesn't pass if called as non root.
- Don't remove the buildroot in the install section.
- Remove patch as linux/fs.h is included if HAVE_LINUX_FS_H is available.

- fix build with newer kernel headers:
    some common FS-specific ioctls moved to linux/fs.h

Mon Jul 17 12:43:39 CEST 2006 -

- Update to version
  + new datagram modes for udp, rawip, unix domain sockets
  + socat option -T specifies inactivity timeout
  + rewrote lexical analysis to allow nested socat calls
  + addresses tcp, udp, tcp-l, udp-l, and rawip now support IPv4 and IPv6
  + socat options -4, -6 and environment variables SOCAT_DEFAULT_LISTEN_IP,
    SOCAT_PREFERRED_RESOLVE_IP for control of protocol selection
  + addresses ssl, ssl-l, socks, proxy now support IPv4 and IPv6
  + option protocol-family (pf), esp. for openssl-listen
  + range option supports IPv6 - syntax: range=[::1/128]
  + option ipv6-v6only (ipv6only)
  + new tcp-wrappers options allow-table, deny-table, tcpwrap-etc
  + FIPS version of OpenSSL can be integrated - initial patch provided by
    David Acker. See README.FIPS
  + support for resolver options res-debug, aaonly, usevc, primary, igntc,
    recurse, defnames, stayopen, dnsrch
  + options for file attributes on advanced filesystems (ext2, ext3,
    reiser): secrm, unrm, compr, ext2-sync, immutable, ext2-append, nodump,
    ext2-noatime, journal-data etc.
  + option cool-write controls severeness of write failure (EPIPE,
  + option o-noatime
  + socat option -lh for hostname in log output
  + traffic dumping provides packet headers
  + became part of distribution
  + socats unpack directory now has full version, e.g. socat-
  + corrected docu of option verify
