Today we are pleased to announce the immediate release of YAWAST v0.11.0 - this is a regular release, as part of our normal release cadence. This is a feature and bug-fix release, adding a few new features and improving efficiency.
This version also includes a breaking change to the JSON file output; this changes the file to reference the hash of a HTTP request and response, and stores the actual value separately. This results in a drastic file size reduction for most web applications, as it is not uncommon for a single response to trigger multiple findings. While this does require any code that was written to parse YAWAST’s JSON output to be updated, we believe that the improved efficiency to justify this cost.
As always, if you discover any issues or have a feature request, please open an issue and provide as much information as possible.
