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)
