Hi folks!  After almost three years of work, 3,924 code commits, and
more than a dozen point releases since Nmap 5, I'm delighted to
announce the release of Nmap 6!  It includes a more powerful Nmap
Scripting Engine, 289 new scripts, better web scanning, full IPv6
support, the Nping packet prober, faster scans, and much more!

For the top 6 improvements in Nmap 6, see the release notes:


Or you can go straight to the download page to grab the source code or
the Linux, Mac, and Windows installers:


Enjoy the release!  And if you find any bugs, let us know on nmap-dev
as described at:


As an open source project, we don't have a marketing budget.  So
please help spread the word about the new release!  I encounter many
folks at security conferences who haven't heard about all the modern
Nmap capabilities and only use it as a simple port scanner.  Anyone
who doesn't use NSE, or at least version detection, is missing out!
