Wireshark 1.8.x included in the upcoming Fedora 18


It seems that the maintainer of the wireshark package in Fedora has updated to version 1.8.1 in the current Fedora Rawhide, which will become Fedora 18. The schedule tells us that Fedora 18 is planned to be released on 2012-11-06 (the latest schedule may have an updated date).

This is good news for the Gluster Community (and support engineers like me), as Wireshark 1.8 contains support for most of the Gluster protocols:

Comments on the support in Wireshark are much appreciated, send them to, file an issue in my development repository or in the Wireshark Bugzilla.
