(...given that the change from Ethereal to Wireshark was just a name  
change - it's the same software, with the same development team, just  
with a different name.  The changes to the software between the first  
release that had the name Wireshark, and Wireshark 1.2.x, are probably  
at least as great as, if not greater than, the changes to the software  
between the last release made with the name Ethereal and the first  
release made with the name Wireshark.)
