Decoding payload as ASN.1 DER/BER

I designed a custom UDP-based protocol and serialise the payload as ASN.1 DER. While Wireshark claims to have BER (the non-canonical version of DER) dissecting support, I cannot find BER, DER or ASN.1 in the list of protocols in the "Decode as…" window.

An old mailing list post from 2011 claims that Wireshark used to be able to decode arbitrary payloads as ASN.1 BER and that, while the functionality was lost, it was trivial to re-introduce that. But it looks like the progress on that has stalled.

Am I missing the right way for decoding stuff as BER or is this really not possible anymore?

Thanks.

Thanks. I am using Wireshark-qt Version 3.2.3 (Git commit f39b50865a13) on NixOS
