Hey folks,

This is just to let you know that there's a new version of Arachni.

Arachni is a modular and high-performance (Open Source) Web Application Security Scanner Framework written in Ruby.

The change-log is quite sizeable but the gist is:
   * Brand new web interface -- allowing for team collaboration.
   * Significant decreases in memory usage.
   * Issue remarks –  Providing extra context to logged issues.
   * Improved payloads for Windows machines for path traversal and OS command injection.
   * RPC API updates allowing for much easier remote scan management.
   * Much improved profiling and detection of custom 404 responses.
   * The ability to exclude pages from the scan based on content.
