    I didn't notice any increase in ferocity of the dragon, but its cool that they were trying to improve it.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    Lupin the dragon got braces during the beta and now he has really mean looking teeth.

    If any one hasn't taken 5.0 out for a test run you should. Much better than before. Of course I have been messing around with the beta and keeping it up to date so the improvements were not a big change to me.
    Even zenmap the gui front end is much better and actually worth using.

    EDIT: The Dev team pushed the newest release to the repo for those that want it, the easy way.

    Default Compiling Nmap form source on Ubuntu

    Along the way to making a video on Ncat I needed to compile Nmap 5 from source, so I figured I might as well do a video on that as well. There are many reasons why you might want to compile Nmap from source instead of just using the package manager:

    1. The is no Nmap package for your distro.
    2. There may be features that are in the source tree that are not in the package for your distro.
    3. You want to be bleeding edge, or the version of Nmap in the repositories is old.
    4. Just so you know you can.

    Let get to compiling!!!
