./net/wireshark, Network protocol analyzer

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.12.7, Package name: wireshark-1.12.7, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Wireshark is a network traffic analyzer, or "sniffer", for Unix and
Unix-like operating systems. It uses GTK+, a graphical user interface
library, and libpcap, a packet capture and filtering library.

The Wireshark distribution also comes with TShark, which is a
line-oriented sniffer (similar to Sun's snoop, or tcpdump) that uses the
same dissection, capture-file reading and writing, and packet filtering
code as Wireshark, and with editcap, which is a program to read capture
files and write the packets from that capture file, possibly in a
different capture file format, and with some packets possibly removed
from the capture.

Update to wireshark-1.12.7.
Full ChangeLog since 1.10.14 is too long to include. A few highlights:

- Expert information is now filterable when the new API is in use.
- "malformed" display filter has been renamed to "_ws.malformed".
- Transport name resolution is now disabled by default.
- Support has been added for all versions of the DCBx protocol.
- Cleanup of LLDP code, all dissected fields are now navigable.
- Dissector output may be encoded as UTF-8. This includes TShark output.
- The ASN1 plugin has been removed as it s deemed obsolete.
- The GNM dissector has been removed as it was never used.
- The Kerberos dissector has been replaced by one generated from ASN1 code.
- A more flexible, modular memory manager (wmem) has been added.
- A new API for expert information has been added, replacing the old one.
- The tvbuff API has been cleaned up.
