I'm proud to announce the release of Wireshark 1.2.18.

June 30, 2011. If you are still using Wireshark 1.2 we strongly
encourage you to upgrade to 1.6.


What is Wireshark?

   Wireshark is the world's most popular network protocol analyzer.
   It is used for troubleshooting, analysis, development, and
   education.

What's New

  Bug Fixes

   The following vulnerabilities have been fixed. See the security
   advisory for details and a workaround.

     o The Lucent/Ascend file parser was susceptible to an infinite
       loop.

       Versions affected: 1.2.0 to 1.2.17, 1.4.0 to 1.4.7, and 1.6.0.

   The following bugs have been fixed:

       is not correct in User's Guide. (Bug 5199)

Getting Wireshark

   Wireshark source code and installation packages are available from
   http://www.wireshark.org/download.html.

  Vendor-supplied Packages

   Most Linux and Unix vendors supply their own Wireshark packages.
   You can usually install or upgrade Wireshark using the package
   management system specific to that platform. A list of third-party
   packages can be found on the download page on the Wireshark web
   site.

File Locations

   Wireshark and TShark look in several different locations for
   preference files, plugins, SNMP MIBS, and RADIUS dictionaries.
   These locations vary from platform to platform. You can use
   About->Folders to find the default locations on your system.

   network on OS X. (Bug 1315)

   Dumpcap might not quit if Wireshark or TShark crashes. (Bug 1419)

   Wireshark might freeze when reading from a pipe. (Bug 2082)

   Filtering tshark captures with display filters (-R) no longer
   works. (Bug 2234)

   The 64-bit Windows installer does not ship with the same libraries
   as the 32-bit installer. (Bug 3610)
