In WireShark 1.6 and 1.4 (maybe earlier I haven't checked), CTRL+1 through CTRL+0 would do the action of View > Colorize Conversation > Color 1 (or more specifically, it would colorize the TCP stream).

I am unable to do this same keyboard shortcut in 1.8. I did not see this listed in the release notes, and am not sure why such a feature would be removed but not replaced with anything else (CTRL+1 doesn't seem to do anything). CTRL+<space> still works to clear the colorized conversations.

Was this intentional, and if yes what is the rationale? Is there a way to bring this shortcut back without needing to use an external script? I had to use a script to bring back the "middle-click button marks the packet" feature.
