Wireshark 1.0.0 Released

I'd like to congratulate the Wireshark team for releasing Wireshark 1.0.0. As the news item
says, it's been nearly 10 years in the making. I started using Ethereal in 1999 at the AFCERT with data collected from our ASIM sensors.

It's a great time for network security monitoring right now! With Sguil 0.7.0 released there's a lot of attention from high level players. It's cool.

One of the earliest lessons I learned with respect to open source software back in the mid-90's is that a version 0.x may be quite robust and highly usable. Admittedly, I learned that lesson on early development releases of enlightenment window manager (yes, my earliest experiments with Linux were all about the eye candy--and, yes, someday E will release a non-development release). Still, when an open source project reaches its 1.0 milestone, it is a unique milestone that cannot encompass in such a simple number the effort of many hundreds and possibly thousands of developers and bug reporters that contribute their own time and effort to making worthwhile software. Kudos to Wireshark!
