API/ABI changes and versioning
- Building a DLL on win32
- Added SOFIAPUBFUN/SOFIAPUBVAR/SRESPUBFUN to each public identifier
- Added GRUU and simple NAT traversal support in nua:
- Using rport to detect NAT
- See libsofia-sip-ua/nua/outbound.[hc]
and nua_register()/NUTAG_OUTBOUND() documentation
- Revised sresolv interface and added:
utils/sip-dig.c example program
- Removed sres_resolver_add_mutex()
- Renamed cname_record to cn_record in sres_cname_record_t
(they were overlapping with signature errors)
- Added sres_search(): sres_query() does not query subdomains anymore
- Added sres_search_cached_answers() and sres_blocking_search()
- Added string manipulation functions:
- su_strcat_all()
- su_strlst_create_with(), su_strlst_vcreate_with()
- su_strlst_create_with_dup(), su_strlst_vcreate_with_dup()
- Added sip utility functions:
- sip_contact_string_from_via(), sip_transport_has_tls()
- tport, nta: initial support for dynamic transport additions / updates for
NAT traversal.
- Added <sofia-sip/tport_plugins.h>
- Major changes in stun:
- Added the stun_dns_lookup.*() interface to sofia-sip/stun.h.
- stun_handle_() functions are replaced by stun_() functions in
- Discovery context pointer and callback added to stun_bind()
- Removed all request-specific states of stun_state_t from
the public interface.
- Modified signature for stun_nattype(), added stun_nattype_str().
The stun_nattype_t enum is now part of the public header.
- Added handling of a single warning into the soa and nua modules
- Removed old rtsp-related nua functions and events not used anymore.
- Removed nutag_sip_parser (using ntatag_mclass instead)
- Now returning 9XX errors from inside NUA
- Added --enable-sctp to configure; fixed some SCTP problems,
(but not all)
- On win32 platform, clients need to link against the "advapi32"
system library.
- Removed utf8 functions and sofia-sip/utf8.h header file.
<see previous release notes at for examples ;
- should include all changes to public headers, and
other important information to developers;
- and should be updated _continuously_! />

server discovery.

Notes on new features
- The nua module now has support for NAT traversal using SIP outbound.
Because rather limited support for SIP outbound by SIP proxies (nada), a
rport-based NAT traversal was also added. There is also a registration
probe and registation keepalive using OPTIONS request. The NAT traversal
can be disabled by either giving the Contact header explicitly to the
nua_register() call or by setting NUTAG_OUTBOUND() option to NULL.
- The nua module now supports GRUU, too. The GRUU is a special Contact URI,
which is generated by the registrar/home proxy. The requests sent to the
GRUU Contact URI are routed through the registrar/home proxy towards the
user agent. An User-Agent wanting to use GRUU needs to enable it. It has
to generate an unique instance identifier (for instance, by calling
nua_generate_instance_identifier()), store the identifier to permanent
storage (config file) and always include the same identifier in
NUTAG_INSTANCE() when calling nua_create(). Stack generates GRUU when it
receives a "gruu" parameter in an response to REGISTER request, and uses
the GRUU as Contact in INVITE, UPDATE, SUBSCRIBE and NOTIFY transactions.
- DNS server discovery support added for win32. Sofia-SIP is now able
to get a list of configured nameservers from the Windows
registry database (similar to /etc/resolv.conf on UNIX systems). Closes ticket #1445560.
- The 'sip_options', 'sip_dig' and 'stunc' tools have been added to
VC6/win32 workspace as an example applications for the library.
- The STUN NAT type check algorithm has been refactored. Terms used by
the IETF BEHAVE working group are now used to classify NAT/FW features.
Now a distinction is made between NAT mapping (which IP:port is allocated
for requests) and filtering behaviour. The 'stunc' test tool has been
updated to support the changes. Note that the type check mechanism
is not 100% reliable -- future mappings may not be of same type, due
to indeterministic NAT behaviour, or network changes.

Bugs fixed in this release
- Fixed #1485624 - nua not binding to port 5060 by default
- Fixed #1485625 - nua_create() fails if STUN init fails
- Fixed #1485632 - incorrect error message for nua bind errors
- Fixed memory management problems in iptsec, reported by Colin Whittaker.
- Fixed caching and locking problems in sresolv, reported by Thomas Rosenblatt
- Fixed nua_handle_t leaks in various cases, reported by Colin Whittaker
- Fixed #1468407 nua_unregister() crashing when called without preceding
register (and other crash-prone problems with request message in nua)
- Fixed #1473936 - resolving SIP URIs required active IP4 transports in nta
