It's still possible to compile packet.dll using cygwin. I provided an 
implementation of the needed StringCchXXX functions for the Cygwin 
compilation in winpcap\packetntx\dll\strsafe.h.

I admit that the changelog is a bit incomplete. It should have been

Moved all the code managing strings (within packet.dll) to the strsafe.h 
ones  (StringCchXXX).

No modifications have been made in wpcap.dll (the codebase is too big and we 
don't own it).

What do you mean by "4.0 beta3 gets merged into libpcap"?

Have a nice day
