Nmap 6.49 BETA1. This version has hundreds of improvements, including:
* 25 new NSE scripts (total is now 494)
* Integrated all of your latest OS detection and version/service detection submissions (including IPv6). This allows Nmap to properly identify Linux 3.18, Windows 8.1, OS X 10.10, Android 5, etc. We now have more than 10,000 service detection signatures!
* Many bug fixes, some performance improvements, and new ASCII art for anyone tired of the compile-time dragon! The dragon is still there and comes out 1/3 of the time.
Nmap ("Network Mapper") is a free and open source (license) utility for network exploration or security auditing. Many systems and network administrators also find it useful for tasks such as network inventory, managing service upgrade schedules, and monitoring host or service uptime.
Nmap uses raw IP packets in novel ways to determine what hosts are available on the network, what services (application name and version) those hosts are offering, what operating systems (and OS versions) they are running, what type of packet filters/firewalls are in use, and dozens of other characteristics. It was designed to rapidly scan large networks, but works fine against single hosts.
