I'd like to present a new project called "ABI Navigator" for searching binary symbols (functions, global data, etc.) in Wireshark and other open-source libraries: https://abi-laboratory.pro/index.php?view=navigator

The project allows to find out in which versions of the library some symbol is defined, added, removed or changed. The data is taken from the ABI Tracker project: https://abi-laboratory.pro/tracker/timeline/wireshark/

Example for tvb_bcd_dig_to_ep_str from libwireshark.so: https://abi-laboratory.pro/index.php?view=navigator&symbol=tvb_bcd_dig_to_ep_str#result

The project aims to help library users and maintainers to resolve issues with missed symbols and navigate through the reports in the ABI Tracker.

Have you ever encountered the "undefined reference" error or want to know whether the symbol is _stable_ enough to import in your code? Try to find it in the ABI Navigator!
