Roadmap

This is a tentative roadmap for stable releases of Ethereal up to 1.0 and beyond. It is by no means final, and there is no timeline.

0.99.0

Released:

  • April 24, 2006

Pending:

  • None.

Complete:

  • Fix security-related Coverity bugs
  • Add some reasonable example files for filters, rules, .... (Done in 14595)
  • Fix Bugzilla "blocker" bugs
  • Updated Lua for Windows. (GNU TLS/libgcrypt will be added pending an ECCN assignment from the U.S. Department of Commerce)

0.99.1

Pending:

Complete:

  • Fix blocker bugs:
  • Copy over the following revisions:

    Rev

    Description

    17862, 17863, 17867, 17886, 17909, 17968, 17979

    DCT2000 support

    18017

    utf_8to16() overflow fix

    18020, 18022

    Radiotap fix

    18024, 18046, 18050

    TCP reassembly

    18025

    Guard page fix for WinOT

    18026

    File export fixes

0.99.2

Pending:

  • Version checking.
  • Windows updater.
  • TCP reassembly updates

0.99.3

Pending:

  • Use the "User's Guide" as the online help system for Ethereal releases
  • Finish TCP reassembly

1.0

Pending:

  • make plugin ABI stable, so binary plugins will be working with more than one Ethereal version

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?
  • Solve the Preferences/Filter "Save" button confusion. That's the last one on my "personal GUI list" that's regular confusing newbies IMHO. Maybe it's simply solved by adding a Preference setting "Explicit saving changes" which defaults to off. UlfLamping

Discussion

That ECCN looks like a no-brainer to me: Network analyzers . . . . . . . . . . 3A002.e

The lady I spoke with at the BIS seemed to think that we'd still have to comply with the encryption section of the EAR -- Gerald
