= Wireshark {wireshark-version} Release Notes
// Asciidoctor Syntax Quick Reference:
// https://asciidoctor.org/docs/asciidoc-syntax-quick-reference/

This is an experimental release intended to test new features for Wireshark 3.4.

== What is Wireshark?

Wireshark is the world’s most popular network protocol analyzer.
It is used for troubleshooting, analysis, development and education.

== What’s New

Many improvements have been made.
See the “New and Updated Features” section below for more details.

// === Bug Fixes

// The following bugs have been fixed:

//* wsbuglink:5000[]
//* wsbuglink:6000[Wireshark bug]
//* cveidlink:2014-2486[]
//* Wireshark exposed details your sordid redneck past, which were subsequently widely dissemenated on social media.

=== New and Updated Features

The following features are new (or have been significantly updated)
since version 3.2.0:

* Windows executables and installers are now https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4472027/2019-sha-2-code-signing-support-requirement-for-windows-and-wsus[signed using SHA-2 only].
* Save RTP stream to .au supports any codec with 8000 Hz rate supported by Wireshark (shown in RTP player). If save of audio is not possible (unsupported codec or rate), silence of same length is saved and warning is shown.
* Asynchronous DNS resolution is always enabled. As a result, the c-ares library is now a required dependency.
* Protobuf fields can be dissected as Wireshark (header) fields that allows user input
  the full names of Protobuf fields or messages in Filter toolbar for searching.
* Dissectors based on Protobuf can register themselves to a new 'protobuf_field' dissector table,
  which is keyed with the full names of fields, for further parsing fields of BYETS or STRING type.
* Wireshark is able to decode, play, and save iLBC payload on platforms where the https://github.com/TimothyGu/libilbc[iLBC library] is available.
* “Decode As” entries can now be copied from other profiles using a button in the dialog.
* sshdump can now be copied to multiple instances. Each instance will show up a different interface and will have its own profile.
* The main window now supports a packet diagram view, which shows each packet as a textbook-style diagram.

specific to that platform. A list of third-party packages can be found

from platform to platform. You can use About→Folders to find the default
locations on your system.
