Problem with preferences in TShark (Wireshark) 3.4.2

I have been using these 2 extcap plugins with Wireshark (from 3.0.8 to 3.2) without problems.

  • https://github.com/HenryGiraldo/wireshark_extcap_cc1352r1
  • https://github.com/andrebdo/wireshark-cc2531

I recently updated Wireshark and I have the following problems:

C:\Users\hgir>"C:\Program Files\Wireshark\tshark.exe" "-l" "-n" "-T" "pdml" "-o" "extcap.cc2531.channel:11" "-i" "TI CC2531 802.15.4 packet sniffer"

** (tshark.exe:8004): WARNING **: No such preference "extcap.cc1352r1.com_port" at line 386 of
C:\Users\hgir\AppData\Roaming\Wireshark\preferences (save preferences to remove this warning)

C:\Users\hgir\AppData\Roaming\Wireshark\preferences (save preferences to remove this warning)

The preferences related to extcap plugins do not seem to work.

I use these preferences to change the channel in tshark, so I get the following error:

tshark: -o flag "extcap.cc2531.channel:11" specifies unknown preference

I have been reviewing the doc related to extcap in the new version but I did not find any clues.

Any ideas? Any site with advanced documentation or API changes?

P.S: I have access to the source code, so I can do modifications in the plugins or in the configuration.
