Wireshark Changelog

  • You can now switch between between Capture and File Format dissection of the current capture file via the View menu in the Qt GUI.
  • You can now show selected packet bytes as ASCII, HTML, Image, ISO 8859-1, Raw, UTF-8, a C array, or YAML.
  • You can now use regular expressions in Find Packet and in the advanced preferences.
  • Name resolution for packet capture now supports asynchronous DNS lookups only. Therefore the “concurrent DNS resolution” preference has been deprecated and is a no-op.

  • TShark supports exporting PDUs via the -U flag.
  • The Windows and OS X installers now come with the “sshdump” and “ciscodump” extcap interfaces.

  • The Follow Stream dialog now supports UTF-16.
  • The Firewall ACL Rules dialog has returned.
  • The Flow (Sequence) Analysis dialog has been improved.
