= Wireshark {wireshark-version} Release Notes
// Asciidoctor Syntax Quick Reference:
// https://asciidoctor.org/docs/asciidoc-syntax-quick-reference/
This is an experimental release intended to test new features for Wireshark 4.2.
== What is Wireshark?
Wireshark is the worlds most popular network protocol analyzer.
It is used for troubleshooting, analysis, development and education.
== Whats New
// Add a summary of major changes here.
// Add other changes to "New and Updated Features" below.
Wireshark is now better about generating valid UTF-8 output.
A new display filter feature for filtering raw bytes has been added.
Display filter autocomplete is smarter about not suggesting invalid syntax.
The Windows build has a new SpeexDSP external dependency (https://www.speex.org).
The speex code that was previously bundled has been removed.
The personal extcap plugin folder location on Unix has been changed to
follow existing conventions for architecture-dependent files.
The extcap personal folder is now ``$HOME/.local/lib/wireshark/extcap``.
Previously it was ``$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/wireshark/extcap``.
The installation target no longer installs development headers by default.
That must be done explicitly using ``cmake --install <builddir> --component Development``.
The Wireshark installation is relocatable on Linux (and other ELF platforms
with support for relative RPATHs).
Many other improvements have been made.
See the “New and Updated Features” section below for more details.
=== Bug Fixes
The following bugs have been fixed:
* wsbuglink:18413[No Audio in RTP player with Wireshark 4.0.0] - RTP player do not play audio frequently on Win32 builds with Qt6
* wsbuglink:18510[Paused playback cannot continue to play] - Playback marker do not move after unpause with Qt6
//* wsbuglink:5000[]
//* wsbuglink:6000[Wireshark bug]
//* cveidlink:2014-2486[]
//* Wireshark grabs your ID at 3 am, goes to Waffle House, and insults people.
=== New and Updated Features
The following features are new (or have been significantly updated) since version 4.0.0:
// * The Windows installers now ship with Npcap 1.71.
// They previously shipped with Npcap 1.60.
* The API has been updated to ensure that the dissection engine produces valid UTF-8 strings.
* Wireshark now builds with Qt6 by default. To use Qt5 instead pass USE_qt6=OFF to CMake.
* It is now possible to filter on raw packet data for any field by using the syntax ``@some.field == <bytes...>``.
This can be useful to filter on malformed UTF-8 strings, among other use cases where it is necessary to
look at the field's raw data.
* Negation (unary minus) now works with any display filter arithmetic expression.
* ciscodump support Cisco IOS XE 17.x

=== Vendor-supplied Packages
Most Linux and Unix vendors supply their own Wireshark packages.
You can usually install or upgrade Wireshark using the package management system specific to that platform.
A list of third-party packages can be found on the
https://www.wireshark.org/download.html[download page]
on the Wireshark web site.
== File Locations
Wireshark and TShark look in several different locations for preference files, plugins, SNMP MIBS, and RADIUS dictionaries.
These locations vary from platform to platform.
You can use menu:Help[About Wireshark,Folders] or `tshark -G folders` to find the default locations on your system.
