Pending Tasks

  • Move over the following revisions:

    • Rev 49133 - Extend the value_string that show the platform from where the packet was captured.

    • Rev 49169 - Revert 49166: It breaks compilation and is not a proper fix ayway

    • Rev 49148, Rev 49149, Rev 49155, Rev 49171. Ixia Anue ethernet trailer dissector - hopefully simple enough still to go in.

    • Rev 49214 - Bug 8638 - NULL terminate bit field list.

    • Rev 49227, Rev 49230 - The Interface column cannot be hidden any more.

    • Rev 49231 - Set Start menu button inactive, if capture is in progress.

    • Rev 49322 - Bug 6898 - Make the RTMPT size limit a preference so people who want to reassemble massive packets can do so.

    • Rev 49326Bug 8681 - AMR Frame Type uses wrong Value String.

    • Rev 49330 - Bug 8662 - Add more bluetooth color filters.

    • Rev 49332 - Bug 8629 - bad tcp checksum not detected

    • Rev 49333 - Only add one "New from Global" entry in the profiles menu.

    • Rev 49361 - Bug 8690 - Clean up the right-click Profile menu (enhancement but I think the UI is much nicer like this).

    • Rev 49379 - Bug 8197 - Fix read-after-free from tvb_new_octet_aligned().

    • Rev 49409 - Handle truncated packets with DLT_USERxy

    • Queue Empty

Completed

Not Completed

Proposed Changes

  • Items marked with {1} in the TODO list of Development/SNMP

  • Keep plugin API and ABI stable and versioned, so binary plugins will reliably work with more than one Wireshark version (ABI changes can be followed here: Upstream Tracker)

    • Run tools/git-compare-abis.sh in the Git repository right before the release
    • Bump library versions as needed based on Libtool's documentation (don't forget updating debian/wireshark-common.files and debian/wireshark-common.shlibs)

  • Version checking
  • Windows updater
  • 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)
