Version 1.6.2 on Linux the "Capture Interfaces" dialog box (Menu Capture::Interfaces...) does not include selection boxes to select more than one interface. This is different than Figure 4.2 in the documentation, which shows a checkbox to the left of the interface icon and device identifier.

How can I select more than one but less than all of the interfaces for a capture?

Install version 1.8.0 or later (1.8.2 is the current release). The ability to capture on multiple interfaces was introduced in 1.8.x.

... and the web documentation is always for the latest release.

Therefore we should allow for differentiation, though the use of the major-minor version number in the URL.
