Additionally, fnsIfGetIpAddressList and fnsIpGetAddressList were updated to supply the application with a full compliment of descriptive flags allowing the application to better understand the usage of each returned address.

"Fusion Embedded TCP/IPv4/IPv6 version 8.7 also boasts a performance enhancement to the transmit fast-path scenario and an optimization of the FNS_CRITICAL macro. These enhancements increase TCP transmit performance by as much as 15% (for certain ports), depending on the buffer size written to the socket."
