RELEASE 4.1.0 MAY-06-2003

- Working in conjunction with the Extended Security Options Consortium
  (, support for additional privacy protocols 
  has been added to the SNMPv3 User-based Security Model.
  "Extension to the USM to Support Triple-DES EDE in 'Outside' CBC Mode"
  Reeder and Gudmunsson; October 1999, expired April 2000
  "The AES Cipher Algorithm in the SNMP's User-based Security Model"
  Blumenthal, Maino, and McCloghrie; October 2002, expired April 2003
- A new method called get_entries() was added to allow the retrieval
  of columns of a table entry using get-next-requests or get-bulk-requests.
- The argument "-maxrepetitions" was added to the get_table() method.
- Responses to SNMPv3 messages with non-default contextEngineIDs or
  contextNames are now properly processed.
- The method var_bind_names() was added to retrieve an array of the 
  ObjectNames in the VarBindList in the order in which they were 
  received in the GetResponse-PDU. 
RELEASE 4.0.3 SEP-09-2002

- Net::SNMP objects are now destroyed as expected when they are no
  longer referenced.  An internal reference to the object allocated by  
  the Net::SNMP::Dispatcher module is now properly cleared.
- A socket with a file descriptor value of 0 is now accepted by the 
  Net::SNMP module as a valid and open filehandle. 
- Removed an "optimization" which was intended to provide a smoother 
  initialization of the dispatcher but instead could lead to messages 
  incorrectly timing out. 

RELEASE 4.0.2 MAY-06-2002

- The SNMPv3 request message sent for time synchronization is now sent
  with the same securityLevel that is configured for the session.
- The "reserved" bits in the msgFlags field of an incoming SNMPv3
  message are now ignored as suggested by RFC 2572.
- When encrypting a SNMPv3 message, the padding byte(s) are now set to
  a value equal to the size of the padding.  "The actual pad value is
  irrelevant..." according RFC 2574 Section  However, there 
  are some agents that expect this byte pattern.
- Corrected a reference count mismatch which would leave a listening 
  socket open if no response is received from the remote agent.
- Corrected a "deep recursion" error that occurred when using the
  get_table() method to retrieve large tables in blocking mode.
- Using the "-delay" argument with the get_table() method no longer
  incorrectly delays between message exchanges when retrieving the table.
- Optimizations and improvements were made to the Net::SNMP::Dispatcher
  event scheduling and handling procedures.
- The "translate unsigned" logic now correctly handles properly 
  formatted (but unexpected) negative Counter64, Counter, Gauge, and 
  TimeTick values.
