Release Notes: This release contains enhancements and minor bugfixes. It also improves stability on all platforms, and solves Windows-specific issues related to installation and packet forgery. From a user perspective, the only change is that it is now possible to specify a separate list of UDP and TCP ports to scan on all targets. This is set in the "Port scanner range" field when you create a new policy or modify an existing one (e.g. if you wanted to scan TCP ports 1-1024 and UDP ports 1-200, the syntax is: "T:1-1024,U:1-200"). A build for FreeBSD version 9 is now available.
Release Notes: Plugins are faster to process. This release is more reliable when working with a broken db file, and has an improved port scanner.
Release Notes: The SMB API was rewritten. Several bugfixes were made. New OS fingeprints were added. CPU usage was reduced. The "nessus-fetch" command was improved.
Release Notes: This version contains a slightly simplified GUI as well as a new option (silent dependencies) to reduce the amount of information reported by a scan.
Release Notes: This release adds Solaris support for local security checks and support for signed scripts.
Release Notes: This version only uses one /dev/bpf on BSD systems and corrects many minor bugs.
Release Notes: A bug which would cause the client to crash when sending a too long plugin list has been fixed. This version has a workaround for a Linux bug that makes recv() behave differently. Various issues and a deadlock in the libpeks have been fixed. There are now more plugins and over 700 security checks.
