Now, I've mangled my way through releasing Nikto, it has been release on  

No real bug fixes from a month back; but it is now officially there,  
please go to http://www.cirt.net/nikto2 to download it.

Here's the bumf from cirt.net:

Only a month late (personal life et al) and nikto 2.03 is now here. This  
is an important release as it is the first release of Nikto not under the  
benevolent gaze of Sullo.

This is a point release to update the databases and fix a few bugs, many  
of which may be found under the CHANGES document (or you can check on  

In essence, what has changed:

     * Nikto can now take greppable nmap input directly on the command line.
     * Nikto can take a range of ports (e.g. 80-82).
     * Ports that are not open are now reported.
     * Nikto can now read hosts from stdin, by specifying "-host -".
     * HTML and XML reports don't produce duplicates.
     * Allow multiple HTTP methods to work out whether the server is HTTP  
or not.
     * Fix for a nasty bug where defined variables (e.g. cgi-bin  
directories) are not read properly.
     * Updates to allow HTML output to validate properly as XHTML.

The current roadmap can be seen on Assembla.

Please, try out, break and report bugs and suggestions...
