- You can now export HTTP objects via Fileâ†’Exportâ†’Objectsâ†’HTTP.
- Display filter macros are now supported.
- Right-clicking on a packet lets you copy many more things, such as the packet summary and the packet bytes.
- You can now match upper- and lower-case text with the contains operator, e.g. upper(http.request.method) contains "GET".
- A great deal of code has been cleaned up, including fixing many compiler errors. Many thanks to those who worked on this.
