Nmap 2.54BETA5 released

Hello everyone,

I am pleased to announce the release of Nmap 2.54BETA5.  Here are some of
the most important changes:

-- Revamped the 'compatability libraries' subsystem.  Moved all of
   that to a new library called 'libnbase' and changed Nmap and NmapFE
   to use that.  I included a better version of *snprintf and some
   other compatability files.  Obviously I cannot test these changes
   on every whacked OS that needs this compatability cruft, so please
   let me know if you run into compilation problems.

-- Fixed a problem found by Martyn Tovey <martyn () netcraft com> when
   using Nmap on platforms that dislike division by zero.

-- Removed 128.210.*.* addresses from Nmap man page due to complaints
   from Purdue University security staff :).

-- Fixed FreeBSD (some versions) compilation problem found by Martyn
   Tovey <martyn () netcraft com>

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

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


source tarballs and source RPMs are available at:

Let me know if you find any problems.
