Wireshark network monitor updated to 1.6.0

The Wireshark development team has announced the release of version 1.6.0 of its open source, cross-platform network protocol analyser. Wireshark 1.6.0 improves support for larger files (greater than 2 GB) and can now export SSL session keys and SMB objects. Users can save files with a user-specified group id via Dumpcap, and, similarly to text2pcap, Wireshark can now import text dumps. Version 1.6.0 includes options to display the compiled BPF code for capture filters in the Capture Options dialog.

On Mac OS X systems, Wireshark is now distributed as an installation package manager rather than a drag-installer so that it can add a startup item that "should make it easier to capture packets". Other changes include syntax checking for capture filters, and updated protocol and file capture support, as well as fixes for various bugs.
