    Ethereal 0.9.8 has been released.

    Serious problems with the BGP, LMP, PPP, and TDS dissectors have been discovered. See the application advisory for more details.

    New and Updated Features

    The TAP subsystem received major updates. Tethereal can display more statistics, and several graphs have been added to Ethereal.

    A protocol hierarchy statistics tap was added to tethereal. This code may be used to replace the hierarchy statistics code in Ethereal.

    More updates have been added to TCP analysis.

    After a long hiatus, the Windows installer once again includes SNMP support.

    The total running time of the capture is now displayed in the capture progress dialog box. The capture progress dialog also shows ARP packets.

    The look of the plugins dialog was revamped.

    Bug Fixes and Updates

    A bug which caused Ethereal under Windows to crash when "Update list of packets in real time" was enabled has been fixed.

    The stability of the text2pcap utility has been improved.

    In tethereal, the packet count is properly displayed when you ^C out of a capture.

    Ethereal is a program that actually watches what goes into and out of your computer to the internet. It captures all the information and the list is of the protocols that are supported or not. this is the program to use if you suspect that someone is entering into and out of your computer and you know what you are doing.(or if you just want to learn)
