  Updated Protocol Support

   Too many protocols have been updated to list here.

  New and Updated Capture File Support

   3GPP TS 32.423 Trace, Android Logcat text files, Colasoft Capsa files,
   Netscaler 3.5, and Symbian OS BTSNOOP File Format

   Additionally, Wireshark now supports nanosecond timestamp resolution in
   PCAP-NG files.

  New and Updated Capture Interfaces support

   Androiddump support now provides interfaces to capture (Logcat,
   Bluetooth and WiFi) from connected Android devices.

  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
       possible
     * proto_tree_add_text has been removed.
     __________________________________________________________________

Getting Wireshark

   Wireshark source code and installation packages are available from
   [2]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 [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.
     __________________________________________________________________
