Nmap 2.30BETA19 Released
From: Fyodor <fyodor () insecure org>

I am pleased to announce that Nmap 2.30BETA19 has been
released. It contains some bugfixes and some (IMHO) useful tweaks to the
output format. I am hoping to release a stable (non-beta) version within
a week. So please try this one out and let me know if you find any
Here is the list of changes:
-- Tweaked the output so that it now tells how many ports are not
shown and what state the ignored ports are in. This info could be
inferred before by people who had studied the manpage, but now the
info is explicitly available. I cleaned up a bunch of stuff
internally to make this happen. I hope I didn't break anything!
-- Changed NmapFE so that it always kills any running Nmap process
when you press exit. Problem noted by Marc Renner
(mrenner (at) ci.marysville.wa.us)
-- Apparently some Linux (glibc) systems now come with a "strcasestr"
function. So I have made autoconf look for this and use the native
version if supported. (problem noted by Sami Farin
(sfarin (at) ratol.fi)).
-- Added a new attribute "Ignored State: xxx" to the machine parseable
logs, where xxx is the state (closed, filtered, or UNfiltered) that
is being ignored. Ports in that state are not listed (they weren't
listed in earlier versions either). Perhaps I should list ALL
ports for machine parseable output. Opinions?
-- Merged in a patch sent in by Mipam (reinoud (at) ibbnet.org) which is
apparently part of the OpenBSD Nmap "port". Although Nmap seems to
work fine for me on my OpenBSD 2.4 box, a couple OpenBSD users have
complained of problems. Hopefully this will help. (it adds
DLT_LOOP and DLT_ENC offset cases when reading from libpcap).
-- A few really minor bugfixes.
