    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.

    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.
