  • Fix blocker bugs.
  • Finish capture privilege separation.

Complete:

1.0

The cleanup version ...

Pending:

  • make plugin ABI stable, so binary plugins will be working with more than one Wireshark version
  • Fix compiler warnings on various platforms (however, it might not be possible to remove ALL warnings on ALL compilers)

Beyond V1.0

  • Finish the native Windows interface and integrate it with the main trunk
  • Make the capture filter syntax the same as the display filter syntax?
  • Add privilege separation for dissection
  • Add thread/multiprocessor support

... well, maybe all the points mentioned in the WishList!

Unsorted

  • Security improvements (see also: ["Security"])
    • Add privilege separation for POSIX environments (in progress)
    • Add a similar mechanism for the Windows environment
    • Enhance the API to make it easier to write secure code (e.g. add tvb_get_gstring())?
  • Documentation of library API's (e.g. wiretap)
  • Make some of the plugins regular dissectors?

Discussion

Is the native Windows interface still a desirable target? - the Windows integration is pretty good in it's current form -- UlfLamping
