d3vscan gets recognized

     d3vscan initially made some headway after being featured on the Umit Project Page (thanks Adriano). Upon being accepted into Freshmeat, Google searching d3vscan sure does yield some results. Even Packet Storm has featured d3vscan. I would like to thank everyone involved with the d3vscan project for getting us thus far. It feels awesome to get some recognition after working on this for months. I am aware that d3vscan is still in Alpha and there is so much work pending but this pat on the back is a morale booster for the team.

     Zaid will be working on the new d3vscan project website. The caching issue on sourceforge is messy (we tried mounting a /tmp/presistent/) for our CMS. We'll try to retain the similar design for the new website. We do apologize for the slow access time encountered by our users.

  Google SoC 2008 is nearing and Umit is once again participating as a mentoring organization. Ideas for this year includes my Bluetooth scanning idea where d3vscan has already made some headway. Looking forward to this years Google SoC. Flyers for the project would be out soon. Hopefully in time for LinuxSIG's Linux Fest this week. I am planning to conduct a class/classes with Zaid on Python,PyGTK and Silverlight(A simple game with Python & Silverlight) in conjunction with spreading the Umit message. Not forgetting the upcoming Mix event around mid-April which would be about Web technologies(.Net, Silverlight...) from Microsoft. Will be finalizing the details with Ryan by this week and interview sessions for committee members by the week after.

  Alpha 6 features an experimental Network Mode Map view. Besides that, a number of threading bugs has been fixed.

Umit Light Alpha 5 release!

Alpha 5.0 release highlights

-List View for both Bluetooth and Network mode.
-Able to parse Nmap's *.xml with multiple IP's
-Bluetooth mode uses Umit Light's native UBP file format.
-Bluetooth device manufacturer detection

 With that, development would now head towards Map View with PyCairo. An experimental installer for Windows has been created. If there is anyone familiar with py2exe, do drop me an email. The experimental installer has issues with custom modules (spits out a ctypes error on main.pyc execution).

Project development is on rolling out List View in both Network and Bluetooth mode(sched for an Alpha 4 release).The Bluetooth scanning and device detection would appear on Alpha 5.
