2ping 2.0 has been released today. User-visible changes are minor, but behind the scenes, a major update to the protocol specification has been implemented, justifying the major version bump:
2ping is a bi-directional ping utility. It uses 3-way pings (akin to TCP SYN, SYN/ACK, ACK) and after-the-fact state comparison between a 2ping listener and a 2ping client to determine which direction packet loss occurs.
