Don't expect any timelines here, the Ethereal V1.0 release might still be far, far away!


A collection of things to be done before the 1.0 release of Ethereal.

  • Use the "User's Guide" as the online help system for Ethereal releases
  • Add some reasonable example files for filters, rules, .... (Done in 14595)
  • Cleanup source directories (plugins, packaging, asn1, ...)
  • 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())?
  • make plugin ABI stable, so binary plugins will be working with more than one Ethereal version

Things also desirable for the 1.0 release:

  • documentation of library API's (e.g. wiretap)
  • make some of the plugins regular dissectors?

Beyond V1.0

  • Finish the native Windows interface and integrate it with the main trunk
  • make the capture filter syntax the same as the display filter syntax?

... well, maybe all the points mentioned in the WishList!
