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 [[Development/Backporting|cherry-pick it using Git]]. For more information on cherry picking see the [[http://git-scm.com/docs/git-cherry-pick|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 [[https://code.wireshark.org/review/Documentation/cmd-cherry-pick.html|command line]].
Significant bug fixes should be [[Development/Backporting|backported to each applicable stable branches]] after they are checked in to the master branch. If this is not possible, e.g. due to a merge conflict, time constraints, or Git discomfort the change can be added to the pending task list(s) below.

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)
