ethereal renamed to wireshark -- in June 2006

Yesterday, while reading a RHSA (redhat security advisory, I signed up for notification emails) regarding ethereal, I was surprised to find that ethereal was renamed recently to 'wireshark'. not sure why. since it is such a powerful & popular network troubleshooting tool, I imagine there'd be a lot of people updating their resumes to insert '(wireshark)'.

It was back in June that ethreal was renamed, a tool I use on a daily basis (if not hourly). Am I too aloof to what's going on outside my little "circle of life"? Maybe it is about time for me to get onto some RSS feed or radio feed, so I can automatically pick up such vibes w/o conscious efforts.
