Hi all,

I have made available a new snapshot of the SCTPLIB developers branch,
which is released as sctplib-1.3.0.

The *only* platform that this release currently compiles and runs on is
However, it *might* compile and even run on BSD based systems and
Solaris (any feedback/patches warmly welcome).

- - We increased the version tree numbers from 1.1.X to 1.3.X
This is mainly because there is a major change in functionality
as compared to the sctplib-1.0 and sctplib-1.1 series.
Not in the API though !!!!!!

- - This release contains a new server program, which is special: sctpd.
With sctpd we get around the RAW socket problem that may occur, if
more than one instance of sctplib programs run on one system.
We now use a central daemon process (sctpd) which is run with root
permissions to open the raw socket, and read and write SCTP/IP packets
from this socket.
All SCTP-user processes run in usermode and connect to the sctpd via a
unix domain socket (created in the tmp directory).
- - The implementation is absolutely API compatible to sctplib-1.1.X, all
you need to do is start the sctpd process before running sctplib based
See the file README.sctpd that comes with the new snapshot. If you don't,
you will not be able to run any sctplib-based programs any more !!!
- - As a side note:
Except for the sctpd process, the applications need not have root privileges
any more. It suffices for them to be able to read from and write to the
unix domain socket created in the /tmp directory. More details in the
README.sctpd file.

- - Please report any bugs/errors/comments/findings here on the discussion
