Fyodor announced today, on the BugTraq mailing list, the immediate availability of NMap v3.50.

As most of you know, NMap is the defacto standard in the security realm for vulnerability scanning and host fingerprinting.  It also would have ranked #1 on Fyodor's 75 Top Security Tools had he not disqualified his own utility from being voted on and appearing on the list.

The changelog for NMap can be viewed here.

Thanks Fyodor, and everyone who contributes to the NMap project, for such a fantastic piece of software.

Edit:  NMap was the utility used in the movie Matrix Reloaded to scan the power station network for vulnerabilities.  It's often used in that exact way here in the real world...
