Today I posted some long overdue updates. Quite some time ago it was agreed to loosen up the xPL protocol with regard to the values in the xPL message body.
From pure ASCII it now allows UTF8 encoding for the values (keys remain ASCII only). At the same time the length restriction of 128 characters was lifted, which basically means that the value can be as long as the overall message size supports (which is set at 1500 bytes).
So todays updates are the xPLLib for .NET, version 5.3, updated to allow these changes and the WireShark dissector, version 1.1, which will now show a warning (for backward compatibility) in cases of UTF8 and long values.
There are some other minor updates too, check the changelog for those.
- xPLLib for .NET is available on the xPLLib page
- xPL dissector for WireShark can be downloaded from this post
