PcapPlusPlus v21.05 Released!

After almost 9 months since the previous release, I'm excited to announce a new release of PcapPlusPlus: v21.05 ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

For those who are not familiar with the project: PcapPlusPlus is an open source project. It's a multi-platform C++ library for capturing, parsing and crafting of network packets. It is designed to be efficient, powerful and easy to use.

PcapPlusPlus enables decoding and forging capabilities for a large variety of network protocols. It also provides easy to use C++ wrappers for the most popular packet processing engines such as libpcap, WinPcap, Npcap, DPDK and PF_RING.

If you like the project please support it by giving it a GitHub starโญ๐ŸŒŸโญ
