Change Log


Previous versions are available.

  • Version v5.1 (2016-07-23)
    • Console version no longer requires GUI libraries. It is truly a "console" app
    • Lots of bug fixes with Persistent TCP
    • Console version now loops and waits the desired -w time
    • Note that zero is valid and can be used for dynamic binding
  • Version v5.0 (2016-03-20)
    • Persistent TCP Server. The UI dialog now appears.
    • Resend via persistent TCP renders UI dialog and keeps sending
    • The HEX field is a lot smarter. Should be a lot easier to paste data.
  • Version v4.9 (2016-02-23)
    • Packet Sender now supports smart replies. See the new "Smart Responses" tab for more details.
    • Macros are now supported in Smart Responses: {{TIME}}, {{DATE}}, {{UNIXTIME}}, {{RANDOM}}
    • Packet Sender now has EBCDIC support in smart replies and as a keyboard shortcut on the ASCII screen.
  • Version v4.7 (2016-01-24)
    • IPv6 has been added back to the servers in the form of a toggle switch. Packet Sender will use intelligence to decide if to send using IPv4 or IPv6 via its client.
  • Version v4.4 (2015-12-12)
    • The combined IPv6/IPv4 engine that Qt now uses has shown to be very unreliable for Packet Sender's IPv4's persistent connections. Packet Sender's IPv6 binding has been reduced until a better solution can be found.
