Hello everyone,

I am pleased to announce the release of Nmap 4.10. The 10 Google SoC
students are hard at work and have already produced some interesting
patches. And I'm itching to make some big changes as well. So I
decided to produce a release before destabalizing the tree with all of
this development work. Especially since 4.10 includes many important
changes that deserve to go out ASAP. For example, we have integrated
all of your version detection submissions (about a thousand) for Q1,
bringing the DB up to 3,441 signatures representing 401 protocols!
The output format has been changed a bit to allow multiple ignored
port states. So if you scan a machine with thousands of ports in both
the filtered and closed states, your terminal will no longer be
flooded with pages of output. Meanwhile the ICMP rate limit detection
algorithms have been tweaked for better performance. Oh, and we're
putting out a call for ASCII artists. ./configure for details. Read
on for dozens of other changes.

As always, Nmap is available from:
