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.
|3.4.5||April 21, 2021||Next maintenance release of the 3.4 branch|
|3.2.13||April 21, 2021||Next maintenance release of the 3.2 branch|
Significant bug fixes should be backported to all applicable stable branches after they are checked in to the master branch. You can follow development progress using the links below.
For a list of bugs that should have been fixed before the 2.0 release, see Bugzilla (target milestone: 2.0 release).
Other proposed items (possibly out of date, see wiki source):
Items marked with
1️⃣in the TODO list of Development/SNMP since rev148 2007-08-30
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: https://abi-laboratory.pro/tracker/timeline/wireshark/) since rev2033 2011-10-30
tools/git-compare-abis.shin the Git repository right before the release since rev2033 2011-10-30
Bump library versions as needed based on Libtool's documentation in
*/CmakeList.txt(don't forget updating
debian/*.symbols) since rev2033 2011-10-30 for autotools, rev3305 2014-05-30 for cmake
When major library version bumps are needed
*.CMakeList.txt-s have to be changed at two locations and
debian/lib*N.*files have to be updated and renamed
Include Lua API changes in release notes (Lua dissectors can detect Wireshark version using get_version() and adjust the API used.)
Add privilege separation for dissection since rev10 2006-03-27
Add thread/multiprocessor support since rev12 2006-04-06
... well, maybe all the points mentioned in the WishList!
Security improvements (see also: Security)
Add privilege separation for POSIX environments (in progress) since rev8 2005-12-12
Add a similar mechanism for the Windows environment since forever rev1 2004-10-15
Enhance the API to make it easier to write secure code (e.g. add
tvb_get_gstring())? since forever rev1 2004-10-15
Documentation of library API's (e.g. wiretap) since forever rev1 2004-10-15
