I'm pleased to announce major upgrades to the nmap-dev list. It

"subscribe", "unsubscribe", or "help" to
nmap-dev-request () insecure org .
Some things haven't changed. Message posting is still to
nmap-dev () insecure org and the archive is at
http://seclists.org/lists/nmap-dev/ . The list purpose and charte are
Do let me know if you discover any problems or have suggestions for
improving the list.
