Eu só fiquei sabendo hoje...
O problema é que não tem nenhum aviso no site do ethereal!

"The Ethereal network protocol analyzer has changed its name to Wireshark.
The name might be new, but the software is the same. "

In May of 2006, the original author of Ethereal(r) went to work for
CACE Technologies (best known for WinPcap). Unfortunately, he had to
leave the Ethereal(r) trademarks behind.
This left the project in an awkward position. The only reasonable way
to ensure the continued success of the project was to change the name.
This is how Wireshark was born.
Wireshark is almost (but not quite) a fork. Normally a "fork" of an
open source project results in two names, web sites, development
teams, support infrastructures, etc. This is the case with Wireshark
except for one notable exception - every member of the core
development team is now working on Wireshark.
