Nmap 2.30BETA18 Released

I am pleased to announce that Nmap 2.30BETA18 has been released. This
version offers an important bugfix as well as some other changes.
Here are the changes:
-- Fixed a very important bug that occurred when SYN scanning
localhost. Many thanks to Dries Schellekens (
gwyllion () ace ulyssis student kuleuven ac be ) for first reporting
-- Uros Prestor from TurboLinux informed us that the latest
versions of Nmap work with Linux on the upcoming Intel
Merced/Itanium IA-64 processors. He also said that the TurboLinux
distribution includes Nmap. Kudos to them! As well as the other
distros that support Nmap (Debian, Red Hat, Suse, Trinux) and of
course FreeBSD, NetBSD, & OpenBSD. Does anyone know if Nmap ships
with the latest from Mandrake or Corel? The latest Solaris
includes some Free software. If anyone can get them to ship Nmap,
I will buy you a case of beer :).
-- Added a #define to change vsnprintf to vsprintf on machines which
do not support the former (mostly Solaris 2.5.1 and earlier). This
function is less safe. For people who care about security, we
recommend an upgrade to Solaris 8 (or Linux/*BSD).
-- Changed the NmapFE version to 0.<nmap_version> rather than always
leaving it at 0.9.5 (which was confusing). Thanks to J.D.K. Chipps
(jdkc () woptura com) for noticing this.
-- Added support for "-vv" (means the same as "-v -v"). Older
versions of Nmap supported it (noted by George Kurtz).
Since I am hoping to release a "stable" version soon, please try it
out and let me know if you find any problems.
