Subject: Nmap 6 Released!
Date: Monday 21st May 2012 19:27:13 UTC (over 5 years ago)
Hi folks! After almost three years of work, 3,924 code commits, and more than a dozen point releases since Nmap 5, I'm delighted to announce the release of Nmap 6! It includes a more powerful Nmap Scripting Engine, 289 new scripts, better web scanning, full IPv6 support, the Nping packet prober, faster scans, and much more! For the top 6 improvements in Nmap 6, see the release notes: http://nmap.org/6 Or you can go straight to the download page to grab the source code or the Linux, Mac, and Windows installers: http://nmap.org/download.html Enjoy the release! And if you find any bugs, let us know on nmap-dev as described at: http://nmap.org/book/man-bugs.html As an open source project, we don't have a marketing budget. So please help spread the word about the new release! I encounter many folks at security conferences who haven't heard about all the modern Nmap capabilities and only use it as a simple port scanner. Anyone who doesn't use NSE, or at least version detection, is missing out!
