I'm happy to announce that I checked in an initial version of
SCTP support into a newly created feature branch of Nmap living
at [1].  Right now, the branch is mostly equivalent to my latest
patchset from January 4th.

I will continue to work on SCTP support with the goal of making
it suitable for inclusion in Nmap proper one day, and also to add
some more features along the way.  I will notify nmap-dev on
significant progress.

I'd like to thank everyone who has sent me feedback so far;
comments, bug reports, patches etc. are much appreciated.

Thanks, Daniel!  How is this coming along?  Obviously we've been
hearing a lot about SCTP today due to the new remote root exploit for
last month's Linux kernel SCTP bug:

Yeah, SCTP has been in the news :-)

I've been terribly busy with real-life issues (moving into a new
flat).  I expect the SCTP features to be ready for merging into
trunk soon.  I know the code currently doesn't build on OS X,
which I'm looking at right now.  I also have some other patches
piling up in the to test and commit queue.  I think I'll announce
a request for ``testing and breaking'' nmap-sctp as soon as my
Nmap task queue is down to zero.
