"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. "The hard work of the development team shows in Wireshark's popularity. We now regularly see more than 1 million downloads of Wireshark per month from Wireshark.org alone. It has become the de facto open source analysis tool for network hardware and software product creators, tech support teams, security consultants and any IT Professional wishing to investigate network packets and it's all due to the development team."
After reviewing Wireshark 2.0, Laura Chappell, Wireshark and Chappell University founder and packet maven stated, "I love it! There are so many places where Wireshark has been streamlined, and so many really nice, new features. Wireshark just keeps getting better, which makes my life and the life of anyone who spends their time in deep packet land much easier."
