[tcptra-dev] tcptraceroute-1.3beta1

tcptraceroute-1.3beta1 has been made available at
<http://michael.toren.net/code/tcptraceroute/beta.html>.  It includes
a bugfix for discovering virtual addresses under OpenBSD, plus some
significant feature enhancements.  Highlights from the changelog:

    Command line argument handling has been improved, based on
    suggestions by Scott Fenton <scott@matts-books.com>.  "-q 3",
    "-q3", "-qw 3 1", and "-q3w1" are all perfectly legal, now.

    Scott Gifford <sgifford@tir.com> has submitted a patch which deals
    with virtual addresses under OpenBSD much better than before.

    Now displays if the remote host is ECN capable when using -E

    It is now possible to trace to yourself, thanks to a few pointers
    from the nmap source; it seems that there is a libpcap bug affecting
    filters applied to a loopback interface, which was causing problems
    in the past.

    Two new command line arguments were added, -S and -A, to control the
    state of the SYN and ACK flags on outgoing packets.  In absence of
    either of these flags, -S is assumed.  By giving this control to the
    end user, it is now possible to trace through stateless firewalls
    which permit outgoing TCP connections.

As always, feedback is very much appreciated.
