Hey folks,

There's a new version of Arachni, an Open Source, modular and
high-performance Web Application Security Scanner Framework written in Ruby.

The change-log is quite sizeable but some bullet points follow.

For the Framework (v0.4.3):

* Stable multi-Instance scans, taking advantage of SMP/Grid
architectures for higher efficiency and performance.
* Automated Grid load-balancing.
* Platform fingerprinting for tailor-made audits resulting in less
bandwidth consumption, less server stress and smaller scan runtimes.

For the Web User Interface (v0.4.1):

* Support for PostgreSQL.
* Support for importing data and configuration from the previous
0.4.2-0.4 packages.


* Downgraded to require GLIBC >= 2.12 for improved portability.
