  Major API Changes

   The libwireshark API has undergone some major changes:
     * The emem framework (including all ep_ and se_ memory allocation
       routines) has been completely removed in favour of wmem which is
       now fully mature.
     * The (long-since-broken) Python bindings support has been removed.
       If you want to write dissectors in something other than C, use Lua.
     * Plugins can now create GUI menu items.
     * Heuristic dissectors can now be globally enabled/disabled so
       heur_dissector_add() has a few more parameters to make that

Getting Wireshark

   Wireshark source code and installation packages are available from

  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 [3]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.

Known Problems

   Dumpcap might not quit if Wireshark or TShark crashes. ([4]Bug 1419)

   The BER dissector might infinitely loop. ([5]Bug 1516)

   Capture filters aren't applied when capturing from named pipes. ([6]Bug

   Filtering tshark captures with read filters (-R) no longer works.
   ([7]Bug 2234)

   Resolving ([8]Bug 9044) reopens ([9]Bug 3528) so that Wireshark no
   longer automatically decodes gzip data when following a TCP stream.

   Application crash when changing real-time option. ([10]Bug 4035)

   Hex pane display issue after startup. ([11]Bug 4056)

   Packet list rows are oversized. ([12]Bug 4357)

   Wireshark and TShark will display incorrect delta times in some cases.
   ([13]Bug 4985)

   The 64-bit version of Wireshark will leak memory on Windows when the
   display depth is set to 16 bits ([14]Bug 9914)

   Wireshark should let you work with multiple capture files. ([15]Bug

Getting Help

   Community support is available on [16]Wireshark's Q&A site and on the
   wireshark-users mailing list. Subscription information and archives for
   all of Wireshark's mailing lists can be found on [17]the web site.

   Official Wireshark training and certification are available from
   [18]Wireshark University.
