2 elements from the announcement I want to highlight:
With the production-ready and highly performant Npcap 1.00 driver included, we can finally recommend Nmap on Windows as a true peer to the traditional Linux builds.
We also did some long-needed license cleanup and gave the license a name (Nmap Public Source License) to avoid the previous confusion of Nmap being under "GPLv2 with various clarifications and exceptions". The NPSL is still based on the GPLv2, but brings in terms from some other popular open source licenses.
