What is Wireshark?

Bug Fixes
The following bugs have been fixed:
+ * "Follow TCP Stream" shows only the first HTTP req+res. ([1]Bug
+ 9044)
+ * Files with pcap-ng Simple Packet Blocks can't be read. ([2]Bug
+ 9200)
New and Updated Features
The following features are new (or have been significantly updated)
- since version 1.8:
- * Wireshark on 32- and 64-bit Windows supports automatic updates.
- * The packet bytes view is faster.
- * You can now display a list of resolved host names in "hosts" format
- within Wireshark.
- * The wireless toolbar has been updated.
- * Wireshark on Linux does a better job of detecting interface
- addition and removal.
- * It is now possible to compare two fields in a display filter (for
- example: udp.srcport != udp.dstport). The two fields must be of the
- same type for this to work.
- * The Windows installers ship with WinPcap 4.1.3, which supports
- Windows 8.
- * USB type and product name support has been improved.
- * Wireshark now calculates HTTP response times and presents the
- result in a new field in the HTTP response. Links from the
- request's frame to the response's frame and vice-versa are also
- added.
- * The main welcome screen and status bar now display file sizes using
- strict SI prefixes instead of old-style binary prefixes.
- * Capinfos now prints human-readable statistics with SI suffixes by
- default.
- * It is now possible to open a referenced packet (such as the matched
- request or response packet) in a new window.
- * It is now possible for tshark to display only the hex/ascii packet
- data without also requiring that the packet summary and/or packet
- details are also displayed. If you want the old behavior, use -Px
- instead of just -x.
- * The Wireshark application icon, capture toolbar icons, and other
- icons have been 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.
+ * 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 API.
+ * Expert info is now filterable and now requires a new API.
+ * 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.
+ * 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.
