What's New

  New and Updated Features

   The following features are new (or have been significantly updated)
   since version 1.99.0:
     * Qt port:
          + You can now show and hide toolbars and major widgets using
            the View menu.
          + You can now set the time display format and precision.
          + The byte view widget is much faster, particularly when
            selecting large reassembled packets.
          + The byte view is explorable. Hovering over it highlights the
            corresponding field and shows a description in the status
            bar.
          + An Italian translation has been added.
          + The Summary dialog has been updated and renamed to Capture
            File Properties.
          + The VoIP Calls and SIP Flows dialogs have been added.

   The following features are new (or have been significantly updated)
   since version 1.12.0:
     * The I/O Graph in the Gtk+ UI now supports an unlimited number of
       data points (up from 100k).
     * TShark now resets its state when changing files in ring-buffer
       mode.
     * Expert Info severities can now be configured.
     * Wireshark now supports external capture interfaces. External
       capture interfaces can be anything from a tcpdump-over-ssh
       pipe to a program that captures from proprietary or non-standard
       hardware.
       This functionality is not available in the Qt UI yet.
     * Qt port:
          + The Qt UI is now the default (program name is wireshark).
          + A Polish translation has been added.
          + The Interfaces dialog has been added.
          + The interface list is now updated when interfaces appear or
            disappear.
          + The Conversations and Endpoints dialogs have been added.
          + A Japanese translation has been added.
          + It is now possible to manage remote capture interfaces.
          + Windows: taskbar progress support has been added.
          + Most toolbar actions are in place and work.
          + More command line options are now supported

   ADB, Android Logcat text, ceph, corosync/totemnet, corosync/totemsrp,
   Couchbase, CP "Cooper" 2179, Dynamic Source Routing (RFC 4728),
   Elasticsearch, Generic Network Virtualization Encapsulation (Geneve),

  New and Updated Capture File Support

   Android Logcat text files, Colasoft Capsa files, and Wireshark now
   supports nanosecond timestamp resolution in PCAP-NG files.

  Major API Changes

   The libwireshark API has undergone some major changes:
     * Many of the ep_ and se_ memory allocation routines have been
       removed.
     * The (long-since-broken) Python bindings support has been removed.
       If you want to write dissectors in something other than C, use Lua.

Getting Wireshark

   Wireshark source code and installation packages are available from
   [1]https://www.wireshark.org/download.html.

  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 [2]download page 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.
