Wireshark 1.12.0 (64-bit)
* The following bugs have been fixed:
- "On-the-wire" packet lengths are limited to 65535 bytes.
- "Follow TCP Stream" shows only the first HTTP request and response.
- Files with pcap-ng Simple Packet Blocks can’t be read.
- MPLS-over-PPP isn’t recognized.
* The following features are new or have been significantly updated since version 1.10:
- 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.
* Additionally the Windows installers have an extra component: a preview of the upcoming user interface for Wireshark 2.0.
* The following features are new (or have been significantly updated) since version 1.11.3:
- Transport name resolution is now disabled by default.
- Support has been added for all versions of the DCBx protocol.
- Cleanup of LLDP code, all dissected fields are now navigable.
* The following features are new (or have been significantly updated) since version 1.11.2:
- Qt port:
> The About dialog has been added
> The Capture Interfaces dialog has been added.
> The Decode As dialog has been added. It managed to swallow up the User Specified Decodes dialog as well.
> The Export PDU dialog has been added.
> Several SCTP dialogs have been added.
> The statistics tree (the backend for many Statistics and Telephony menu items) dialog has been added.
> The I/O Graph dialog has been added.
> French translation has updated.
* The following features are new (or have been significantly updated) since version 1.11.1:
- Mac OS X packaging has been improved.
* The following features are new (or have been significantly updated) since version 1.11.0:
- Dissector output may be encoded as UTF-8. This includes TShark output.
- Qt port:
> The Follow Stream dialog now supports packet and TCP stream selection.
> A Flow Graph (sequence diagram) dialog has been added.
> The main window now respects geometry preferences.
* Removed Dissectors
- The ASN1 plugin has been removed as it’s deemed obsolete.
- The GNM dissector has been removed as it was never used.
- The Kerberos hand made dissector has been replaced by one generated from ASN1 code.
* New Protocol Support

* New and Updated Capture File Support
- Netscaler 2.6, STANAG 4607, and STANAG 5066 Data Transfer Sublayer
* Major API 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.
- dissector_try_heuristic() signature has been changed to return heur_dtbl_entry_t to make it possible to save it and use it in subsequent calls to avoid the overhead of going trough the heuristics list.
