I'm proud to announce the release of Wireshark 3.4.0.

 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

  Many improvements have been made. See the “New and Updated Features”
  section below for more details.

  New and Updated Features

   The following features are new (or have been significantly updated)
   since version 3.4.0rc1:

     • Nothing of note.

   The following features are new (or have been significantly updated)
   since version 3.3.1:

     • The Protobuf fields defined as google.protobuf.Timestamp type of
       Protobuf standard library can now be dissected as Wireshark
       fields of absolute time type.

   The following features are new (or have been significantly updated)
   since version 3.3.0:

     • The Windows installers now ship with Npcap 1.00. They previously
       shipped with Npcap 0.9997.

     • The Windows installers now ship with Qt 5.15.1. They previously
       shipped with Qt 5.12.8.

   The following features are new (or have been significantly updated)
   since version 3.2.0:

     • Windows executables and installers are now signed using SHA-2

     • Save RTP stream to .au supports any codec with 8000 Hz rate
       supported by Wireshark (shown in RTP player). If save of audio is
       not possible (unsupported codec or rate), silence of same length
       is saved and warning is shown.

     • Asynchronous DNS resolution is always enabled. As a result, the
       c-ares library is now a required dependency.

     • Protobuf fields can be dissected as Wireshark (header) fields
       that allows user input the full names of Protobuf fields or
       messages in Filter toolbar for searching.

     • Dissectors based on Protobuf can register themselves to a new
       'protobuf_field' dissector table, which is keyed with the full
       names of fields, for further parsing fields of BYTES or STRING

     • Wireshark is able to decode, play, and save iLBC payload on
       platforms where the iLBC library[2] is available.

     • Wireshark is able to decode, play, and save opus payload on
       platforms where the opus library[3] is available.

     • “Decode As” entries can now be copied from other profiles using a
       button in the dialog.

     • sshdump can now be copied to multiple instances. Each instance
       will show up a different interface and will have its own profile.

     • The main window now supports a packet diagram view, which shows
       each packet as a textbook-style diagram.

     • Filter buttons (“Preferences → Filter Buttons”) can be grouped by
       using “//” as a path separator in the filter button label.

     • IPP Over USB packets can now be dissected and displayed

 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 download page[4] 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.

 Getting Help

  The User’s Guide, manual pages and various other documentation can be
  found at https://www.wireshark.org/docs/

  Community support is available on Wireshark’sQ&A site[5] and on the
  wireshark-users mailing list. Subscription information and archives
  for all of Wireshark’s mailing lists can be found on the web site[6].

  Issues and feature requests can be reported on the issue tracker[7].
