I'm just wondering if WireShark Legacy will ever have an End Of Life?

Thank you

It already happened, if you're referring to Wireshark 1.x. If you are referring to the GTK User Interface, that's another matter. So far it's still there, but may fall behind the Qt interface more and more. Eventually it will be dropped, maybe after Wireshark 2.2.

Yeah, I saw that.

I'm just wondering if it will ever be removed from being included in the download of WireShark 2.x?

Thank you

Eventually yes, it will be dropped. The issue is with maintenance of the features and packaging of related libraries, which is out of our control.
