Wireshark 2.0 has stepped closer to being released with the new Wireshark 1.99.2 development release. This new Wireshark release continues work on porting its UI to Qt.

Wireshark 1.99.2 has many updates to its Qt port, including menu, layout, and plug-in improvements. There's also fixes to the interface, a new RTP Streams dialog, and other additions with Wireshark favoring Qt these days over GTK.

Other work that's been happening in the Wireshark 1.99 development series includes new DNS/HPFEEDS/HTTP2 stats, support for external capture interfaces, the Qt UI becoming the default over GTK, and support for many new protocols.

While Wireshark has too many updated protocol changes in the 1.99 series to note, the new protocols to this Wireshark series include: "(LISP) TCP Control Message, AllJoyn Reliable Datagram Protocol, Android ADB, Android Logcat text, ceph, corosync/totemnet, corosync/totemsrp, Couchbase, CP "Cooper" 2179, DJI UAV Drone Control Protocol, Dynamic Source Routing (RFC 4728), Elasticsearch, ETSI Card Application Toolkit - Transport Protocol, Generic Network Virtualization Encapsulation (Geneve), GVSP, HCrt, HiQnet, IPMI Trace, iSER, KNXnetIP, MACsec Key Agreement - EAPoL-MKA, MCPE (Minecraft Pocket Edition), OptoMMP, RakNet games library, Riemann, S7 Communication, Shared Memory Communications - RDMA, Stateless Transport Tunneling, and ZVT Kassenschnittstelle."
