I'm proud to announce the release of Wireshark 1.99.0.


   This is an experimental release intended to test new features
   for Wireshark 2.0.
     __________________________________________________________

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

  New and Updated Features

   The following features are new (or have been significantly
   updated) since version 1.12.0:
     * The I/O Graph in the Gtk+ UI now supports an unlimited
       number of data points (up from 100k).
     * TShark now resets its state when changing files in
       ring-buffer mode.
     * Expert Info severities can now be configured.
     * Wireshark now supports external capture interfaces.
       External capture interfaces can be anything from a
       tcpdump-over-ssh pipe to a program that captures from
       proprietary or non-standard hardware. This functionality is
       not available in the Qt UI yet.
     * Qt port:
          + The Qt UI is now the default (program name is
            wireshark).
          + A Polish translation has been added.
          + The Interfaces dialog has been added.
          + The interface list is now updated when interfaces
            appear or disappear.
          + The Conversations and Endpoints dialogs have been
            added.
          + A Japanese translation has been added.
          + It is now possible to manage remote capture
            interfaces.
          + Windows: taskbar progress support has been added.
          + Most toolbar actions are in place and work.
          + More command line options are now supported

  New Protocol Support

   ceph, corosync/totemnet, corosync/totemsrp, CP "Cooper" 2179,
   Dynamic Source Routing (RFC 4728), Generic Network
   Virtualization Encapsulation (Geneve), IPMI Trace, iSER,
   KNXnetIP, OptoMMP, S7 Communication, and Stateless Transport
   Tunneling

  Updated Protocol Support

   Too many protocols have been updated to list here.

  New and Updated Capture File Support

   Android logcat text files, and Wireshark now supports
   nanosecond timestamp resolution in PCAP-NG files.

  Major API Changes

   The libwireshark API has undergone some major changes:
     * Many of the ep_ and se_ memory allocation routines have
       been removed.
     * The (long-since-broken) Python bindings support has been
       removed. If you want to write dissectors in something other
       than C, use Lua.
     __________________________________________________________

Getting Wireshark

   Wireshark source code and installation packages are available
   from [1]https://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 [2]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.
