Fyodor,

I just wanted to let you know that I am a member of the
Remote-Exploit Group, that makes the Backtrack LiveCD and Nmap
4.50 is included in the upcoming Backtrack3 Beta release due out 
 tomorrow.

Regards,
Josh

No major problems have been found.  Now we just need to tell the world
about it!  So if you guys can either submit it to news sites, or vote
it up on news sites, that would be great.  For example, it has been
posted to Digg:

http://digg.com/security/Nmap_Turns_4_5_10_Year_Anniversary_Edition
http://digg.com/security/Nmap_4_50_Released

But it needs more votes to get to the front page.  So if you have an
account, please digg it.

Also, I just checked the Slashdot Firehose and there are a few
stories about the release.  You just go to:

http://slashdot.org/firehose.pl

Then type nmap in the search box and hit "Filter".  The one with the
title "mapping the net..." has hardly any submission text.  So I voted
for "NMap 10th anniversary and 4.50 release" despite grammar and
capitalization issues, and I also voted for "Nmap hits the Silver
Screen (Again)".  You may have to be a registered user (and possibly a
subscriber) to vote for these.

Also, the release is already on Freshmeat.

Those are two sites I use, but there are probably other good places
for it.  If you post something, that is great.  But here are a few
suggestions:

* Be sure to link to the announcement:
  http://insecure.org/stf/Nmap-4.50-Release.html

* Be sure to say what Nmap is (calling it the "Nmap Security Scanner"
  is probably enough)

* Watch your grammar and spelling, as some people are really sensitive
  to that.

The 4.0 release made news all over the World, and I think 4.50 is an
even better release!

Thanks,
Fyodor
