- The following features are new (or have been significantly updated)
- since version 1.10:
- * Wireshark now uses the Qt application framework. The new UI should
- provide a significantly better user experience, particularly on Mac
- OS X and Windows.
- * The Windows installer now uninstalls the previous version of
- Wireshark silently. You can still run the uninstaller manually
- beforehand if you wish to run it interactively.
- * Expert information is now filterable when the new API is in use.
- * The "Number" column shows related packets and protocol conversation
- spans (Qt only).
- * When manipulating packets with editcap using the -C <choplen>
- and/or -s <snaplen> options, it is now possible to also adjust the
- original frame length using the -L option.
- * You can now pass the -C <choplen> option to editcap multiple times,
- which allows you to chop bytes from the beginning of a packet as
- well as at the end of a packet in a single step.

- instead of from the absolute packet beginning or end.
- * "malformed" display filter has been renamed to "_ws.malformed". A
- handful of other filters have been given the "_ws." prefix to note
- they are Wireshark application specific filters and not dissector
- filters.

Major API Changes
The libwireshark API has undergone some major changes:
- * A more flexible, modular memory manger (wmem) has been added. It
- was available experimentally in 1.10 but is now mature and has
- mostly replaced the old emem API (which is deprecated).
- * A new API for expert information has been added, replacing the old
- one.
- * The tvbuff API has been cleaned up: tvb_length has been renamed to
- tvb_captured_length for clarity, and tvb_get_string has been
- deprecated in favour of tvb_get_string_enc.

Vendor-supplied Packages
- Most Linux and Unix vendors supply their own Wireshark packages. You

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.
