Nmap 2.51 released

Nmap 2.51 has been released, mostly to fix a target parsing bug found by
Steve Horsburgh which could in some cases cause Nmap to crash with the
error "Assertion `t->nleft > 1' failed".  I through a couple minor things
in as well.  There are no plans to release 2.52 in the near future unless
someone finds an important bug in 2.51.

Here are the changes:

-- Fixed target parsing bug found by Steve Horsburgh (shorsburgh (at)

-- Changed makefile/rpm to store fingerprint, rpc, and services file
   in $prefix/share/nmap rather than $prefix/lib/nmap , since these
   files are architecture independent.  You should now use 
   ./configure --datadir instead of ./configure --libdir to change 
   the default location.  Suggested by Thomas Klausner ( wiz (at)
   danbala.ifoer.tuwien.ac.at ).

-- I am now including Eilon Gishri's (eilon (at) aristo.tau.ac.il) rpc
   number list (which he recently merged with the Nmap 2.50 rpc list).

-- Included Spanish and French HTML versions of the Nmap man page (may
   not always be up to date).

For those of you running Linux/x86 w/rpm (www.rpm.org), you can
install/upgrade to the newest version of nmap/nmapfe with these

rpm -vhU (nmap url)
where (nmap url) is one (or both) of these:

source tarballs and source RPMs are available at:
