Hi All. First off, I'm shocked that we haven't found any serious
problems with Nmap 4.85BETA10. I hope that means it is
super-high-quality software, but I suspect that not everyone has
tested as thoroughly as they possibly can. Please do upgrade to this
new version, give it a whirl, and speak up if you find problems! You
can get it from the normal SVN location or
Since we're now in a deep stability freeze, we're only putting in
important bug fixes (and some really trivial fixes such as man page or
comment typos) in the /nmap trunk. But people keep producing new and
valuable patches, so I've created a dev repository to hold those for a
week or two until the stability freeze is over. You can find it at:
Other than the location above, instructions are the same as the Normal
Nmap SVN (http://nmap.org/book/install.html#inst-svn). It was
branched from r13793.
Keep in mind that stabilizing the main /nmap branch is the highest
priority now. So if you find yourself torn between testing and bug
fixing of /nmap or writing new code for nmap-exp/dev/nmap, please
choose the former.
Even though it is in nmap-exp, be careful what you put into
nmap-exp/dev/nmap. Treat it with the same care you would normally use
for changes to /nmap.
Anyone is welcome to merge the latest from /nmap into
/nmap-exp/dev/nmap whenever you get the urge. Be sure to start where
the last merge left off and note the relevant revision numbers in the
