I'm proud to announce the release of Wireshark 1.6.0rc1. This is the
first release candidate of the upcoming 1.6 (stable) branch.

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 bugs have been fixed:

     o Wireshark is unresponsive when capturing from named pipes on
       Windows. (Bug 1759)

     o Ring buffers are no longer turned on by default when using
       multiple capture files.

  New and Updated Features

   The following features are new (or have been significantly
   updated) since version 1.4:

     o Wireshark can import text dumps, similar to text2pcap.

     o You can now view Wireshark's dissector tables (for example the
       TCP port to dissector mappings) from the main window.

     o TShark can show a specific occurrence of a field when using
       '-T fields'.

     o Custom columns can show a specific occurrence of a field.

     o You can hide columns in the packet list.

     o Wireshark can now export SMB objects.

     o dftest and randpkt now have manual pages.

     o TShark can now display iSCSI, ICMP and ICMPv6 service response
       times.

     o Dumpcap can now save files with a user-specified group id.

     o Syntax checking is done for capture filters.

     o You can display the compiled BPF code for capture filters in
       the Capture Options dialog.

     o You can now navigate backwards and forwards through TCP and
       UDP sessions using Ctrl+, and Ctrl+. .

     o Packet length is (finally) a default column.

     o TCP window size is now avaiable both scaled and unscaled. A
       TCP window scaling graph is available in the GUI.

     o 802.1q VLAN tags are now shown by the Ethernet II dissector.

     o Various dissectors now display some UTF-16 strings as proper
       Unicode including the DCE/RPC and SMB dissectors.

     o The RTP player now has an option to show the time of day in
       the graph in addition to the seconds since beginning of
       capture.

     o The RTP player now shows why media interruptions occur.

     o Graphs now save as PNG images by default.

     o TShark can read and write host name information from and to
       pcapng-formatted files. Wireshark can read it. TShark can dump
       host name information via

       [-z hosts]

       .

     o The tshark -z option now uses the

       [-z <proto>,srt]

       syntax instead of

       [-z <proto>,rtt]

       for all protocols that support service response time
       statistics. This syntax now matches Wireshark's syntax for
       this option.

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.
