It is our pleasure to announce the release of netsniff-ng 0.6.5!

There hasn't been a tree freeze this time. There weren't any critical
changes and the overall number of changes is small. I'll keep the
release procedure that way as long as the inflow of new changes an
issues remains that low, i.e. there will be a new release every once in
a while once enough changes have accumulated.

The summary of changes and the short log of all changes since v0.6.4 can
be found below and also on github at


Thanks to all contributors for this release:

Daniel Roberson, Markus Amend, Matteo Croce, Nick Grauel, Petr Machata,
Radoslav Bodo, Ondřej Gajdušek
