Release 0.5c (we have clickable links now!)

So after another 2 weeks of slaving away at work we finally have another minor release out.

Now before I go on I just need to put out a big shout-out for Rob Fuller and the gang at Hak5.org. After the last release Rob sent me a LIST of some pointers and feedback and while I know that this release doesn't nearly cover everything in that list,  the feedback was greatly appreciated.  Needless to say, I'll be attempting to address everything that was mentioned, not just from Rob, but from everybody.

So to Rob, Hak5 and everybody that has been supporting us with comments and feedback, thank you, and keep them coming :)

Now, for this release most of the changes were subtle GUI enhancements, but the idea was to make things a bit more usable and straight forward. Yes, there are still some glaring issues, but I'm working on that :)

Download here...

Oh yes, we also added some new tutorials and I'll be adding another one today on how to use the GeoIP locations, KML and Google Maps. More fun than useful, but keep an eye out for that one.

Thank you for the support, and please keep those comments coming!

Why don't apps have a "Make it better" menu option?

Well that means more work for the developers :) I actually got that off a tweet @mubix, and that kinda stuck with me. I'm building Yeti to work in a way to solve a problem that I've got, and in turn I'm sharing it with the world, however, I doubt that the way I like things are the same as most other @people out there.
So to compromise, instead of adding a menu option I've decided to add a weekly poll, so that people out there, meaning you, can choose how I spend my free time. (Note option 4 :P)
Also, I would like people using Yeti, to tell me the single most annoying feature of the app, and if what they like to be done to it. Trust me, I'll get round to it ... eventually.


Release 0.5b (we have version numbers now)

Hi Everybody,
Sorry we've been so quiet, but we've be sorting some gremlins and doing training, well in short we've been training to earn our keep here at SensePost....

But I've got a new release out today with some nice fixes on the ForwardLookup (hostname brute  forcing) it should go a lot faster plus you can now do large lists of domains in a single go. I just did a test on brute forcing about 2000 domains in a single go, it took some time but the app handled it with no problems :)

There are some other bug fixes, minor tweaks here and there, so check out the First releasenotes.txt file that shipped with the application.

Some highlights in the next release to look out for will be a custom data exporter and some custom search engine searches, so in short, watch this space.

O and by the way I'll be pushing out a new tutorial a bit later this week.

As always, have some fun!
