Wireshark, the well known open-source network packet analyzer, has finally reached version 2.0!

While its user interface was originally written for GTK+, Wireshark 2.0 marks the point that it's been rewritten in Qt! It's been more than two years of work and now this Qt version of Wireshark is out there after going through several development releases.

Wireshark 2.0 also has new capture options, related packets identifiers, new dialogs, and many other improvements. Some of the Wireshark 2.0 highlights are pointed out via their blog.

Wireshark 2.0 official is available for download today via Wireshark.org.
