Hello OpenVPN Users & Developers,

I thought it would be a good time to wrap up the minor fixes that have gone
into the codebase over the last couple months.

So here's a beta which I would encourage you to test as much as possible. 
While the changes are mostly minor, some of the fixes such as --tun-mtu-extra
resulted in major changes to the MTU sizing algorithm.  As well, I have only
built for RH Linux in my testing, so please test on other OSes, distros,
processor architectures, etc.

Beta is available on CVS as well as here:


Change Log:

2003.02.16 -- Version

* Added --replay-persist feature to allow replay
  protection across sessions.
* Fixed bug where --ifconfig could not be used
  with --tun-mtu.
* Added --tun-mtu-extra parameter to deal with
  the situation where a read on a TUN/TAP device
  returns more data than the device's MTU size.
* Fixed bug where some IPv6 support code for
  Linux was not being properly ifdefed out for
  Linux 2.2, causing compile errors.
* Added OPENVPN_EXIT_STATUS_x codes to
  openvpn.h to control which status value
  openvpn returns to its caller (such as
  a shell or inetd/xinetd) for various conditions.
  openvpn.h to allow debugging in situations
  where stdout, stderr, and syslog cannot be used
  for message output, such as when OpenVPN is
  instantiated by inetd/xinetd.
* Removed owner-execute permission from file
  created by static key generator (Herbert Xu
  and Alberto Gonzalez Iniesta).
* Added --passtos option to allow IPv4 TOS bits
  to be passed from TUN/TAP input packets to
  the outgoing UDP socket (Craig Knox).
* Added code to prevent open socket file descriptors
  from being accessible to called scripts.
