+## Press announcement
+Today, the XXX ?nd 2014, the second minor Codesake::Dawn rubygem version it has
+been released.
+This will be the last release of the codesake-dawn gem with this name. Starting
+form November, 7th we will rename the gem to just dawn.
+Codesake::Dawn is a source code scanner designed to review your code for
+security issues.
+Codesake::Dawn is able to scan your ruby standalone programs but its main usage
+is to deal with web applications. It supports applications written using majors
+MVC (Model View Controller) frameworks, like:
+* [Ruby on Rails](
+* [Sinatra](
+* [Padrino](
+Codesake::Dawn version 1.2 has 180 security checks loaded in its knowledge
+base. Most of them are CVE or OSVDB bulletins applying to gems or the ruby
+interpreter itself. There are also some check coming from Owasp Ruby on Rails
+Writing safe code it's important, but sometimes security issues are introduced
+by third party code your application relies on. As example, consider a SQL
+Injection vulnerability introduced by Ruby on Rails framework.
+Despite the effort you spend in sanitizing inputs, your web application
+inherits the vulnerability suffering as well. An attacker can easily exploit it
+and break into your database unless you upgrade the offended gem.
+There is a comprehensive set of command line flags you can read more by issuing
+```dawn --list-knowledge-base``` flag or by reading [project
+README]( file.
+The list of security checks included in version 1.2.0 can be found online at:
+You can use [facilities provided by
+github]( to submit bug
+reports, product enhancements, new security checks you want to me to add in
+future releases and even success stories.
+Now it's time for you to install Codesake::Dawn version 1.2.0 with the
+following command and start reviewing your code for security issues:
+$ gem install -P MediumSecurity codesake-dawn
