"Wireshark 2.0 is the result of the hard work and dedication of a group of independent developers spread around the planet. They're wonderfully talented and it's an honor to be able to work with them and with the user community on such a great product," said Gerald Combs, Wireshark project founder and Director of Open Source Projects for Riverbed.
