    Nessus 3.0 has been released...

    From the newsletter...


    I'm thrilled to announce the availability of Nessus 3.0.0 !

    Nessus 3 is a complete rewrite of the Nessus engine, designed for
    speed and efficency -- as a result Nessus 3 is on average twice as
    fast as Nessus 2 (with spikes as high as five times faster) and is
    less resource intensive.


    The Nessus 3 major enhancements are the following :

    - New NASL3 engine
    - Improved plugin storage for faster startup time
    - Improved networking functions
    - New scanner architecture to be both efficient and robust
    - The Nessus daemon fetches the plugins automatically when registered
    (this can be disabled in nessusd.conf)
    - Improved error handling


    Nessus 3 is available on the following platforms :

    - Red Hat ES3 and ES4
    - SuSE 9.3 and 10.0
    - FreeBSD 5 and 6
    - Fedora Core 4
    - Debian 3.1

    The following platforms will be supported in early 2006 :

    - Mac OS X 10.3 and 10.4
    - Microsoft Windows 2000/XP Pro/2003
    - Solaris 9 and 10


    I'm also happy to announce that we're extending the service we offer
    to our direct feed customers to include full email support, with
    access to our customer portal which gives users the ability to reset
    their activation codes, track their support tickets, and have access
    to the Nessus Support Knowledge base.

    We have also changed our plugins license agreement so that
    consultants do not have to fax us to ask permission to use the plugin
    feed any more.

    Nessus 3 can be downloaded at <http://www.nessus.org/download/>


    Thanks,

    Thanks horse13, I ended up installing Suse on that workstation and moving up to 3.0.3. It's been working great for me so far.
