Do Not Add Items To The Backport List

We've migrated from Subversion to Git. As part of the migration the backport lists below are going away.

If you want a commit backported, please cherry-pick it using Git. For more information on cherry picking see the git-cherry-pick man page.

If your commit has an associated Gerrit change ID you can also backport it using Gerrit via the web interface or the command line.

Upcoming Release Status

1.10.6

Pending Tasks

Completed Tasks

  • Queue Empty

Deferred or Rejected Tasks

  • Queue Empty

1.8.13

Pending Tasks

Completed Tasks

  • Rev 54181 - Bug 9571 - Fix " Wireshark stops showing new packets but dumpcap keeps writing them to the temp file"

  • Rev 49145 - Bug 9488 - Remove static packet_info *gpinfo and just use the packet_info provided by the function

  • Rev 54227 - Bug 9578 - Homeplug dissector bug: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION: dissector accessed an invalid memory address

Deferred or Rejected 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)
