Before I release the final 1.1.0 I wanted to make a release candidate with COPR repos for Fedora 20 and 21. This should be less painful than compiling everything from source so I am hoping to get more feedback and testing that way.
Feedback would be greatly appreciated. I expect to have a final release out by the end of February.
1.1.0 will be a packed major release, the number of changes is second only to the 0.8.0 C++ rewrite.
- Complete redesign of the main window, with rich-text rule descriptions
- Better SCAP Security Guide integration
- Tailoring window greatly improved – shows relationships between values and rules
- Opens bzip2 files
- Performance improvements when loading big SCAP files
- Countless UX improvements
- And a lot more, a total of 34 tickets fixed
How to test?
If you have x86_64 Fedora 20 or 21 you can just enable my COPR repo and install scap-workbench via yum or dnf.
# dnf install dnf-plugins-core
# dnf copr enable mpreisle/scap-workbench
# dnf install scap-workbench
Please consider also installing scap-security-guide to test the new integration dialog. We may opt to make scap-workbench depend on scap-security-guide for the final release but the decision has not been made yet.
# dnf install scap-security-guide
