Features

Fixes and small enhancements

  • Handles html within a heading such as <strong> or <span> and reports the whole heading correctly
  • Better handles entities involving a hash (eg ') within a url. Previously was truncating the url at the hash assuming it to be a fragment/anchor
  • New option to include <lastmod> in xml sitemap. If this is checked, the last modified date for internal pages is logged (if the server gives it) and shown in the sitemap table
  • Correctly removes all temporary files when application quits. v4 and before had removed temporary files only when starting a new scan. previous points of v5 had not removed all files.
  • Fixes bug causing spurious text to be reported as the link text if an image has alt = ""
