A few things I forgot to mention :-)

Hey all,

I forgot to mention a few things in the previous post:
  1. We're going to release BinDiff v2.1 on the 15th of October 2008. This is still the "old" diffing engine, albeit with a number of speed & reliability improvements.
  2. We're going to release BinNavi v2.0 on the 15th of October 2008. The number of new features in this release is huge -- it's really quite significant. You can read about it in detail on SP's blog.
    I will post some more information myself in the next days. Just a few mouth-watering keywords: Plugin API to extend Navi from Java/JRuby/Jython/JavaScript, built-in intermediate language, hierarchical tagging / namespaces for structuring large disassemblies, cross-module-graphing, managing multiple address spaces in one project, many user interface improvements, faster IDA->SQL export etc. etc. etc.
  3. The DiffDeluxe engine will be part of the next BinDiff release thereafter, probably no later than February 2008. If you are an existing BinDiff customer and would like to try the DiffDeluxe engine in order to provide us with feedback, do not hesitate to contact us -- it's available for testing now. We're especially interested in finding instances where DiffDeluxe performs worse than BinDiff v2.1. Switching the core diffing engine is a significant change, and I would not want to know of any instances where the new engine is worse than the old one.
