Hi,
 
I'm writting a plugin for a specific protocol of my company and I found that a recent change to the file column_info.h (rev 23058) introduce an issue with the check_col function when the plugin is used with a previous version of wireshark (ie 0.99.6).
 
The change had added two new columns in the middle of the enum and so COL_PROTOCOL and COL_INFO have been shifted two times.
 
So if the plugin is compiled with the latest release of the repository, the check_col function will return false in all previous version of wireshark.
 
I think that the two new columns in the enum should be added at the end of the list and not in the middle of it ?
 
Thanks for your help.
Antoine
