Wireshark-users: [Wireshark-users] Questions about the latest release

I have been asked to find out what one of the new additions to Wireshark does. The line goes:

“Decryption support for WPA/WPA2 and SNMPv3 has been added. The TDS / MS SQL dissector now de-obfuscates passwords.”

Firstly, how does the WPA decryption work?

Secondly, what exactly does it mean that the MS SQL dissector now de-obfuscates passwords?

Thank you,
