I've just finished the initial version of a Wireshark welcome page.

That welcome page is shown when no capture file is loaded - well, you'll immediately see it just when you start Wireshark (SVN25083 or later).
I was impressed from the moment I saw it :).
What resolution is it designed for though? 1024x768? Is it possible (I haven't looked at how this is even implemented yet) to let it stretch/compress depending on the width of the Wireshark window like well behaved web pages do?
Well, it does already. But with GTK, there's a minimum size a Widget takes, so it can't become smaller - if you minimize the page even smaller than the sum of those minimum widget sizes, the page will show up scrollbars. The Widget settings I've chosen are for a min. resolution of 1024*768, before scrollbars appear (well, slightly less about 1000*700 or so, so there's some space left for things like a startmenu).

I'm currently working on a mechanism to automatically show scrollbars for the recent file/interface lists, if they are very large - we'll see if I have success with this.
