- Dradis Framework 2.7.2 - Release Notes
+ Dradis Framework 2.8 - Release Notes
=======================================
- -- version 2.7.2, August 1st, 2011 --
+ -- version 2.8, October 10th, 2011 --
-- http://dradisframework.org --
What is new
-----------
-This is a bug-fixing release (see below).
+This version introduces two major updates: three-column layout and smart ajax
+updates.
-In 2.7.0 we introduced a lot of new plugins:
-* Metasploit import: exploit away with your favourite framework and then import
-seamlessly into Dradis to collate results and merge with information from other
-tools. Kudos to @sussurro
+We always try to improve the interface and UX for our users. With this realease
+we are introducing a cleaner three-column layout that maximizes the amount of
+space available to view your notes and removes the clutter in the note list.
-* NeXpose (.xml), OpenVAS (.xml) and w3af (.xml) output can be uploaded into
-Dradis thanks to the amazing work by @raesene
+Read more about the three-column layout here:
+http://blog.dradisframework.org/2011/09/new-in-dradis-28-three-column-layout.html
-* SureCheck is a great build review tool by Wildcroft Security
-(http://www.wildcroftsecurity.com/) and thanks to @werrett you can now import
-its (.sc) files into Dradis.
+Knowing that there is a new revision in the server and that we should update is
+a good way to learn that others in the team are making changes, however the new
+smart updates will bring any changes made by your team mates to your current
+session without having to hit refresh or take any other action. Automagic!
-* The guys at the Web Exploitation Framework (wXf) team created an upload for
-Dradis.
+A screencast showing the smart ajax updates in action can be found here:
+http://blog.dradisframework.org/2011/09/new-in-dradis-28-smart-refresh.html
-Some of our good old plugins were updated:
-* Nessus plugin supports .nessus v2 format
-* Vuln::DB import plugin updated to work with the latest release (http://securityroots.com/vulndb/)
-
-Along with the changes in the plugin themselves Dradis 2.7.0 introduced the new
-Configuration Manager (browse to /configurations once the server is running).
-All the configuration settings for every plugin can be accessed and edited
-through the new config manager. Forget the .yml files and embrace the new web
-interface.
-
-We have also improved the command line interface to use Thor. Run: thor -T to
-see all the available tasks for importing, uploading and managing the
-information in your Dradis repository.
-
-Finally we have been working hard on the new Upload Manager, it will let you
-upload *huge* files while keeping you posted of the status of the processing
-that is being done internally. You can see how the plugins are working their
-magic in real time through the new Ajax-enabled interface.
+In addition to the above, we have worked on an improved version of the Nmap and
+Nessus upload plugins to re-use existing host nodes and thus avoid duplication.
+Send us your feature requests! Add them to the project tracker:
