The development team is proud to announce a new w3af release! Some
of the features of the 1.0-rc3 version are:
* Enhanced GUI, including huge changes in the MITM proxy and the Fuzzy
* Increased speed by rewriting parts of the thread management code
* Fixed tons of bugs
* Reduced memory usage
* Many plugins were rewritten using different techniques that use less
HTTP requests to identify the same vulnerabilities
* Reduced false positives
You can download the latest versions from the official w3af
website: http://w3af.sf.net/ , enjoy!
Regarding the project itself, we realized that the time between
each release were totally random, so we reorganized  the whole
project in such a way that will force us to release periodically (or
look bad if we don't). Contributing  is easier than ever, as we
have defined clear ways of finding your tasks with categories,
All projects have longstanding bugs, and w3af isn't the exception.
I would like to ask for the help of the community to fix two very
critical and complicated bugs  before we release the 1.0 version
in three months time. If you've got the Python experience, and a
couple of hours... please give it a try :)
