Adding a full suite of network apps is one of the areas I'm interested in
(along with the network model in general right down to NDIS) and my aim was
to have all the network apps pretty much complete for the 0.3 release. Due
to missing functionality in our iphlpapi it's not going to be possible, but
most the general functionality of arp, tracert, netstat, ipconfig and route
is now in place and their output simulates that of the MS tool suite.
I really need to start working on iphlpapi soon, but services and the GUI
have recently caught my attention ... heh.

Glad your not offended. As a learning process for me, I've been rewriting
much of the existing code. This has also had the added benefit of being able
to simulate the MS tools easier, as I had a general framework in my head to
code to instead of trying to decipher and modify existing code.

I didn't realise you still read the mailing lists. Does this mean you might
return at some point?
It would be nice to have another developer from the UK back on board, as at
the moment, I'm the only one fighting our cause .... lol :)
