Maintenance versions 1.3.5, 1.4.3, and 1.5.2 are available!


Hello everybody,

The maintenance versions 1.3.5, 1.4.3, and 1.5.2 of the ROHC library
were released!

== About the ROHC library ==

The ROHC library provides an easy and robust way for applications to
reduce their bandwidth usage on network links with limited capacity or
expensive costs. Headers of network packets are compressed with the
ROHC protocol and algorithms.

The ROHC protocol is very efficient for compressing VoIP streams that
use RTP as transport protocol. ROHC is also suitable for compressing
IP-only (IPv4 or IPv6) flows, UDP flows and many others.

The library is published as Opensource under the license GNU GPL
version 2 or later.

See http://rohc-lib.org/ for more details.

== Release notes & changelogs ==

These versions are maintenance releases with bug fixes only. Some
important bugs were corrected. Some bugs were not fixed to keep
compatibility with previous 1.3.x, 1.4.x, or 1.5.x releases, or because
fixing the problem required invasive code changes.

Because of unfixed bugs, it is strongly recommended not to use any
1.3.x and 1.4.x versions with unsafe sources of IP or ROHC packets.
It is also strongly recommended not to use any 1.5.x versions with
unsafe sources of RTP packets. If you are concerned, please upgrade to
the 1.6.0 version.

See the release notes and the changelogs [1, 2, 3] for more details.

Many thanks to people for bug reports and/or bug fixes, especially
Yura, Elisabeth, and Viveris Technologies.

are shipped in separate archives in order to reduce the size of the
source archives.
