They're the counterparts to the first pieces of the "next generation" netfilter
subsystem that will be present in the 2.6.14 linux kernel release.

	This is the low-level communications library

	This is the userspace library for nfnetlink_log in 2.6.14
	It is used by the upcoming ulogd-2.00beta release
	Needs libnfnetlink-0.0.11

	This is the userspace library for nfnetlink_queue in 2.6.14
	It is used by applications that traditionally used libipq
	NuFW already has a working port
	Needs libnfnetlink-0.0.11

	This is the userspace library for the ip_conntrack netlink interface
	It is currently only used by the conntrack program (see below)
	Needs libnfnetlink-0.0.11

	The userspace connection tracking table administration program
	Needs libnetfilter_conntrack-0.0.20
