Switched our code signing certificate back to DigiCert after some users found
older Windows versions could not validate the signature on our driver for
versions 0.9985 through 0.9990. The driver is again dual-signed with SHA-1
and SHA-2 certificates. See #2012
Major changes to management of Npcap driver's circular packet buffer,
switching from per-CPU unshared segments to a single worker thread managing a
queue of work items. This improves buffer utilization, reduces the amount of
time spent processing in the network stack, and should reduce packet loss.
Several performance-related improvements to the NDIS filter driver: Switched
from SpinLocks to ReadWriteLocks for several crucial shared data structures,
which will improve performance by reducing resource contention on
multiprocessor systems, and introduced an object-pool allocation pattern for
several frequently-used short-lifetime objects, improving performance by
reducing memory allocations.
Again restore "unused" NDIS filter callbacks which cause Windows 7 to lose
connectivity when they are removed. See #1998.
