- 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

Major API Changes
The libwireshark API has undergone some major changes:
- * A more flexible, modular memory manager (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 and tvb_get_stringz have been deprecated in
- favour of tvb_get_string_enc and tvb_get_stringz_enc.

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.
