Hey folks,

This is just to let you know that there's a new version of Arachni.

Arachni is a modular and high-performance (Open Source) Web Application Security Scanner Framework written in Ruby.

The change-log is quite sizeable but the gist is:
* Brand new web interface -- allowing for team collaboration.
* Significant decreases in memory usage.
* Issue remarks ? Providing extra context to logged issues.
* Improved payloads for Windows machines for path traversal and OS command injection.
* RPC API updates allowing for much easier remote scan management.
* Much improved profiling and detection of custom 404 responses.
* The ability to exclude pages from the scan based on content.
