Roadmap

This is a tentative roadmap for the next stable releases of Wireshark. For more information on the Wireshark release lifecycle and on past releases see Development/LifeCycle.

Planning

  • Release

    Expected Date

    Notes

    1.11.0

    Unknown

    Next development release

    1.10.2

    Unknown

    Next maintenance release of the stable branch

    1.8.10

    Unknown

    Next maintenance release of the old stable branch

Upcoming Release Status

1.10.2

Pending Tasks

  • Rev 50923 - Bug 8980 - IO graph advanced, error when calculating value for field of type FT_RELATIVE_TIME with multiple items in single frame

Completed Tasks

  • Queue Empty

1.8.10

Pending Tasks

  • Rev 50923 - Bug 8980 - IO graph advanced, error when calculating value for field of type FT_RELATIVE_TIME with multiple items in single frame

Completed Tasks

  • Queue Empty

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)
