Build v5.1.70829 - 4th September 2008:
- Huge improvement in memory handling! - Memory handling is now done in a much more efficient way and temporary data is now stored by default onto the hard drive freeing up a LOT of system memory especially when dealing with large websites.
- Introduced pre-conditions to various vulnerability tests - this will check if vulns can actually exist in a certain environment before starting to test for then - thus avoiding checking for vulnerabilities in vain and at the same time speeding up the scanning time.
- Summary view for alert nodes - avoids long delays in displaying all alerts under a node.
- Added "Current Test" information to the scan information view.
- Improvements in HTTP Fuzzer.
- Fixed Javascript issue with parsing certain websites.
- Fixed validation when saving login sequence file.
- Fixed crash with error "sitefile parts already loaded".
- Fixed Web Services Scan Wizard detection of Inputs for particular WSDL URL's.
