Wireshark 2.0 switched default UI to Qt in unstable

Wireshark With the latest release the Wireshark Project decided to make the Qt GUI the default interface. In line with Debian’s Policy the packages shipped by Debian also switched the default GUI to minimize the difference from upstream. The GTK+ interface which was the previous default is still available from the wireshark-gtk package.

You can read more about the new 2.0.0 release in the release notes or on the Wireshark Blog featuring some of the improvements.

Happy sniffing!

update: Wireshark 2.0.0 will be available from testing and jessie-backports in a week. Ubuntu users can already download binary packages from the Wireshark stable releases PPA maintained by the Wireshark Project (including me:-)).
