Some Release Notes cleanup.
- Don't list bugs which were fixed in 1.12 as being fixed in 1.99. (We probably should add some bugs to the bugs-fixed list.) - Remove new-features list for everything prior to 1.12 (so we only list improvements since 1.12). - Fix bug link to bug 1814. - Fix the wiki's URL (the wiki doesn't appear to support https today). - Remove bugs 4445 and 9242 from the Known Problems list: they've been fixed.

- 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.
- * You can now specify an optional offset to the -C option for
- editcap, which allows you to start chopping from that offset
- 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.
- * The Kerberos dissector has been replaced with an auto generated one
- from ASN1 protocol description, changing a lot of filter names.
