Hi everyone!  I'm pleased to release Nmap 4.23RC1 with all of our
changes in the last 2 weeks.  You'll note that we have gone from a SOC
development version to a release candidate to emphasize how close we
are getting to the big stable release!


Do you have a prospective release date for the stable, or just when it
feels right?  I'm fine with either, of course; I'm just curious as
usual :)

This version has some good stuff, but first here is an update on the
debloating front:

These 220K (compressed) removed did come at a big price: we lost
NmapFE and the 1st generation OS fingerprinting system, which is a
little sad after their 8+ years in service.  But it is finally time
for Zenmap and the 2nd gen system to take over and shine!

Wow, I thought it would be much smaller than that with NmapFE and the
1st Gen OS Detection gone.  I guess the 2nd Gen system uses a lot of
the same functions as the 1st?  osscan.cc is still 1000+ lines long.
