I just got information that Fyodor has released Nmap version 5.20.

It offers more than 150 significant improvements, including:

  • 30+ new Nmap Scripting Engine scripts
  • enhanced performance and reduced memory consumption
  • protocol-specific payloads for more effectie UDP scanning
  • a completely rewritten traceroute engine
  • massive OS and version detection DB updates (10,000+ signatures)

You can find out more about this in the CHANGELOG

UPDATE: On Jan. 27, 2010, Fyodor released Nmap 5.21, it’s a bug-fix release.
