Comment (by ra1nb0w):

 Sure; the Apple decision to maintain only the last three version, now
 corresponds to 3 years, is quite short. \\
 But from 10.6 on seems good to me for wireshark; you can always use
 tcpdump or other pcap tools to capture and then move the result to
 analyse. \\
 In general, I don't like to have unsupported packages (with many
 vulnerabilities like wireshark) that have newer versions that works fine.
 Moreover I think that we don't need to confuse the user with too many
