What's new in this version:

Bug Fixes:
- Dumpcap might not quit if Wireshark or TShark crashes

- The IP map feature (the “Map” button in the “Endpoints” dialog) has been removed.Display filter buttons can now be edited, disabled, and removed via a context menu directly from the toolbar
- Drag & Drop filter fields to the display filter toolbar or edit to create a button on the fly or apply the filter as a display filter.

- TShark now supports color using the --color option
- The "matches" display filter operator is now case-insensitive
- Display expression (button) preferences have been converted to a UAT. This puts the display expressions in their own file. Wireshark still supports preference files that contain the old preferences, but new preference files will be written without the old fields
