Umit 0.8.1-testing release announcement

Folks, I'm pleased to announce the Umit 0.8.1 testing release. This release features the new Compare Results Window, and a few other usability and performance improvements. The 0.8.1-testing release is currently available for download at the source forge project page[1] in the following formats:
  • Source packages compressed in the formats: tar.gz, tar.bz2 and zip (Higwidgets included)
  • Windows installer with Umit and Higwidgets only
  • Windows installer with Umit, Higwidgets and every related dependencies
Windows users won't have any problem while installing Umit using the installers. I tested umit installers in Windows XP Professional (Without Service pack), Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003 Enterprise.

Linux users should take a look at README file inside source packages for installation instructions.

* For detailed installation instructions, please visit this page[6] *

About this testing release:

The major diference you'll note on Umit, is the new Compare Results Window, that now, provides two diferent modes for scan comparison: The old text diff, that you may already know, and the Comparison mode, that shows you a cleanner view of what has changed from an scan to another without the need of know the diff symbols and behavior. Along with this brand new feature, you'll be able to customize the higlight colors with a few clicks.

Another feature is the bug report interface, that will allow you report a bug directly at the project bug tracker at source forge, without the need of moving your mouse off the application. With just a few seconds, you'll be able to tell us the issues you've found, and we'll be pleased to fix it as fast as we can. If you like the source forge bug tracker interface, there is no problem! You can use it as usual. Please, try to describe the bug as better as you can, making us able to reproduce it and found the issue. Try to send also the nmap command, output, and XML output that caused the problem. Try to be as clearer as possible, so I can fix it faster. ;-)

What's new?
  • Compare Results Window now features two modes, and highlight color customization
  • Usability improvements: now you can open umit and start typing the target address. The tab navigation experience was improved as well.
  • Bug report interface - Report a bug without the need of openning a web page, registering to the bug tracker, etc.
  • Performance improvements
