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

    Unscheduled

    Next development release

    1.12.6

    Unscheduled

    Next maintenance release of the 1.12 branch

Backporting Changes

Significant bug fixes should be backported to each applicable stable branches after they are checked in to the master branch. You can follow development progress using the links 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 in */Makefile.am and */CmakeList.txt (don't forget updating debian/wireshark-common.files and debian/wireshark-common.shlibs)

  • Version checking
  • 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)
