    Nmap has included hundreds of improvements in this latest update - its first big release since December.

    "... Another priority for Nmap 7.50 was improving our Nmap Scripting Engine. For example, we were one of the first scanners to release a detection script for the MS17-010 vulnerability exploited by the Wannacry ransomeware and we hope it helped many people prevent infection."



    Also includes:
    • 300 new service detection fingerprints
    • Improvements to Nmap's family of related tools such as Ncat
    • Dozens of other enhancements and bug fixes

    7.60 released about a month and a half later... added ssh and more scripts.. this is the headline for the release notes:
    Nmap 7.60 released! SSH support, SMB2/SMB3 improvements, 14 more scripts, new Npcap, GSoC work, and more...

    read more if you want to know more....
    http://seclists.org/nmap-announce/2017/4

    and I have to say... for a 20 year old program... it is still as excellent now as it was when it first came out... only a lot better now...
