  • AirPcap, support (which provides raw mode capture under Windows) has been enhanced to allow capturing on multiple AirPcap adapters simultaneously using the Multi-Channel Aggregator.
  • VoIP call playback has been enhanced. If Wireshark is linked with the PortAudio library, you can play back G.711 conversations. This feature is present in the standard Windows installer.
  • The capture interface dialog display has been enhanced.
  • The "Save" button has been removed from the "Ok" / "Apply" / "Cancel" button group in the following dialogs:
  • Edit/Preferences
  • View/Coloring Rules
  • Capture/Capture Filters
  • Analyze/Display Filters
  • Analyze/Enabled Protocols
  • If you're fond of the "Save" button it can be resurrected in the User Interface preferences.
  • Reading from stdin ("-i -") now works under Windows.
  • Expert analysis has been improved.
  • Wireshark now supports USB as a media type. If you're running a Linux distribution with version 2.6.11 of the kernel or greater and you have the usbmon module enabled and you have a recent CVS version of libpcap (post-0.9.5) installed you can also do live captures. More details can be found at the USB capture setup page on the wiki.
