SCAP Workbench 1.1.0rc1

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.

What’s new?

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

Otherwise you have to pull from the git repository or download the 1.1.0rc1 tarball and build workbench yourself.

Where to report issues?

The best place to report issues is the trac bug tracker. However I also accept reports via the mailing list or even comments to this blog post.
