Geting Close To Nmap 4.0 ...

new nmap born. (version 3.9999)
Now we are getting very close to the big 4.0 release.


I am pleased to announce the release of Nmap 3.9999. From the version
number, you can probably guess that we are getting very close to the
big 4.0 release. But this version has many changes, so I wanted to
give you a chance to fully test it out before releasing 4.0. Please
let me know if you find any problems in the next few days.

Now back to the changes -- I think you'll like these. One new feature
is runtime integration, which allows you to press [enter] at any time
for a status report with an estimated completion time for the current
scan. Another is asynchronous DNS, which speeds up large network
scans as Nmap doesn't have to resolve each IP serially using the
(slow) host resolver anymore. Windows users may appreciate that there
is now an executable installer -- nmap-3.9999-setup.exe, which takes
care of things like WinPcap and the registry performance improvements
for you. The traditional Windows .zip file format is still available
as well. The version detection database has been updated with all
remaining 2005 service submissions. It now contains 3,153 signatures
for 381 service protocols. Please keep those submissions coming in
'06! Nmap has some new options, such as --max-retries and --badsum.
And there is more in the CHANGELOG below.
