I've just packaged and uploaded version 1.0.0 of liboping. The source
code is available from the homepage at


Since this release includes some bug fixes and the API has not been
changed, all users are encouraged to upgrade.


As mentioned above, despite a new major version number, the API has not
been changed. The new version number symbolises, that the API is now
considered to be stable and will not change anytime soon.

The other changes are:

2009-02-17, Version 1.0.0
  * oping.h: Provide the OPING_VERSION to easily determine the library's
    version at compile time.
  * liboping.c: Fixed an off-by-one error in `ping_iterator_get_info':
    When determining the buffer size to hold the hostname, the function
    would return one byte too little.
  * liboping.c: Fix an incorrect assertion in `ping_timeval_add'. Thanks
    to Alex Brooks for reporting the issue.
  * liboping.c: Make sure `EAI_SYSTEM' is defined at compile time.
    Although specified by POSIX, Cygwin apparently doesn't have it.
  * liboping.c: Add compatibility code for AIX. Thanks to Doug
    MacEachern for the patch.
  * liboping.c: Store and possibly return the host name as provided by
    the user.
  * liboping.c: The number of timed out packets is now counted and can
    be retrieved with `ping_iterator_get_info'.
  * Perl bindings: The Net::Oping Perl package has been added to
    bindings/ and is built along with liboping.


Many thanks to the contributors of this release:

  * Alex Brooks
  * Doug MacEachern
  * Sebastian Harl

Your input is very appreciated :)
