New and Updated Features

The ‘console.log.level’ preference was removed in Wireshark 3.6.0. This release adds an ‘-o console.log.level:’ backward-compatibilty option on the CLI that maps to the new logging sub-system. Note that this does not have bitmask semantics and does not correspond to any actual preference. It is just a transition mechanism for users that were relying on this CLI option and will be removed in the future. To see the new diagnostic output options consult the manpages or the output of ‘–help’.

New Protocol Support
There are no new protocols in this release.

Updated Protocol Support
ANSI A I/F, AT, BitTorrent DHT, FF, GRPC, IEC 101/104, IEEE 802.11, IEEE 802.11 Radiotap, IPsec, Kafka, QUIC, RTMPT, RTSP, SRVLOC, Sysdig Event, and TECMP

New and Updated Capture File Support
BLF and RFC 7468

New File Format Decoding Support
There is no new or updated file format support in this release.

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 download page on the Wireshark web site.

File Locations

A penetration testing software 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 Help › About Wireshark › Folders or tshark -G folders to find the default locations on your system.
