I have been meaning to make this post for a while now...
I'm happy to announce that Nikto has a new lead developer! He goes by the name "Dave" but I think his parents actually named him "deity." Whatever you decide to call him, please welcome him to the club and make sure he knows the secret handshake.
He's been hard at work over at Assembla fixing my broken code and adding new features, and is steadily progressing towards a 2.03 release (targeted for end of July).
If you can't wait for the release, you can always check out the source from here.
