I'd like to release 0.99.8 tomorrow or Wednesday.
I've updated the INSTALL file somewhat to match current Wireshark. 
However, I think there's a bit more updating needed as to the use of 
setuid & root privileges & etc.
I removed some comments about "don't use setuid"; It may be that I 
should have left them in....
What is the recommended install configuration re privileges on *nix for 
wireshark & etc ?
That depends on whether it's OK for any user on the system to be able to capture 
packets, or if that ability should be restricted.
I suggest updating INSTALL as needed and including the updated version in the 0.99.8 release.
I've updated INSTALL and README.packaging. I'll wait until tomorrow morning 
(PST) to copy them over and start the release process in case anyone wants to 
make additional changes.
