As of now, WinPcap 4.1.2 is available in the download section of the
WinPcap website, http://www.winpcap.org/

This release fixes a couple of bugs in the WinPcap driver that could
cause an OS crash. It also disables some tracing messages that were
mistakenly printed by the driver.

Changelog from WinPcap 4.1.1
============================

- Bug fixing:
 + Fixed a bug reported by Boaz Brickner (http://pcapdotnet.codeplex.com/):
   the driver could cause an OS crash when an IRP_MJ_CLEANUP is processed
   in parallel with an IRP_MJ_READ/WRITE/DEVICECONTROL. The fix defers the
   deallocation of the open structure in IRP_MJ_CLOSE.
 + Fixed a bug in the buffered write code. A malformed transmit buffer sent
   with pcap_sendqueue_transmit could cause a buffer overflow and crash the
   OS.
 + Disabled tracing in the driver (it was left on by mistake in the
   previous release of WinPcap).
 + Added the missing export pcap_free_datalinks.
 + Do not show the installation panel with the OS info.
 + Small fix to the documentation regarding WDK.
