True.  And tell me you can get 7.0 to scan anything without problems?

I've been holding off on 7 because 6.x has been working fine but was
planning on upgrading soon. Want to share problems you've seen
with 7?

I've been having a devil of a time getting it to run via the new
command-line interface with shared ssh keys for a home grown web front-end
that requests scans and reports.

The strange part is that it'll run fine if you use a password, just not
shared key authentication (sort of important for programatic access).
The user permissions appear to be the same, the environment variables are
identical, but the command fails with an annoying error when using shared
keys (cygwin openssh via the full install as well as some of the openssh
only installations).

This is the current major roadblock to our upgrade to 7.0, and I'm anxious
to get it resolved.  Been working with ISS tech support for a week or so
