More Info:

 This application is a sniffing application for
KDE. It's in the starting release... This version
is the first real stable release... It needs a lot
of feature I'm working on it. The last code
release is into SVN KDE in
trunk/playground/network . 

Help is needed. If you want to make KSniffer
useful you're welcome. A list of things to do is
in TODO file.

The version 0.2 alpha1 is not stable version that
should work fine, but can give you problems.
Feedbacks on features and bugs are welcome to
release in next months (or maybe weeks) the
version 0.2 final. This version was released
without translations.
