my announcement <https://twitter.com/ctxt/status/534302103196286976>. If
you haven't taken a look at dependency-check - it is a tool that can be
used as part of the solution to the OWASP Top 10 A9 - Using Components with
For more information on the project, how the tool works, etc. please take a
look at the documentation site
Aside from general code clean-up, several important changes are included in
this release and I would highly recommend upgrading. The documentation site
<http://jeremylong.github.io/DependencyCheck/> has been updated, the Command
Line Interface (CLI)
<https://bintray.com/jeremy-long/owasp/dependency-check/view>and ANT task
available on bintray <https://bintray.com/jeremy-long/owasp>, the Maven
and Ant task
available in Central
and the Jenkins plugin is available through Jenkins plugin
Please let us know if you have issues either by posting to the group

Summary of changes:
1. Fixed reported false positives.
2. The Maven plugin now uses the dependencies GAV as declared in the
project/POM being scanned (thanks Erik!).
3. Resolved issue #156 to ensure consistent results rather then cycling
removed and added issues in Jenkins.
4. The CLI now accepts Ant style paths for the '--scan' argument.
5. The CLI now accepts an '--exclude' argument that accepts Ant style
6. When using the CLI you can now specify a file name for the output
file (as long as the --format is not set to ALL). The file extension must
be xml when --format is set to xml or '.htm' or '.html' for either of the
HTML formated reports.
7. The Nexus Analyzer has been disabled and replaced with the Central
Analyzer. If you specify a Nexus Pro URL in the configuration
dependency-check will use the specified Nexus Pro server instead of using
Central. The functionality between the two analyzers is identical; however,
the very supportive people at Sonatype asked us to make this change - so
please upgrade to use the Central Analyzer.
8. Updated the URLs to download the NVD CVE data to use the gzip
version. This has drastically decreased the time required to update the
local cache of the NVD data. NOTE - if you are mirroring the NVD on your
local network the original URLs to the XML files will work; but it is
strongly advised that you change to using the gzip URLs. The current URLs
can be obtained from the dependencycheck.properties
