Hi O2 Community, after 6 months of dedicated development, I'm happy
to announce that I finally published a first major release of the OWASP O2
Platform <http://www.owasp.org/index.php/O2> (with an installer,
documentation+videos and a number of key/unique capabilities).

There is a brand new GUI which makes a massive difference in finding the
available scripts, tools and APIS that exist inside O2 (if you tried the
previous versions you will really appreciate this) . You can see the new GUI
and access the download link at this page:

*This is the moment when I'm asking you to PLEASE TRY
*, and provide feedback on: what you like, what works, what doesn't work,
what could be improved, etc... (if you want to file a bug, please use this
web interface http://code.google.com/p/o2platform/issues/list)

There is enough functionality + capabilities + power in this version of O2,
that I finally have the confidence to make this direct request for you,
knowing that no matter what area of Web Application Security you are
involved in, there will be an O2 Script/Module/Tool that will make you more

I plan to make a number of announcements about this release to a number of
mailing lists, but first I really want to hear from you on the stability and
usability of this release

Since the new GUI is very recent (completed it yesterday), most
documentation <http://o2platform.com/wiki/Documentation> and videos
available <http://o2platform.com/wiki/O2_Videos_on_YouTube> start with the
previous GUI. But since I can now easily create detailed WIKI documentation
pages and/or videos using O2 , my plan is to reply to your questions that
way (i.e. with a video or wiki page)

In addition to the new GUI, there are a number of key O2 features and
capabilities that I was finally able to piece together last week (for
example the creation of a 'complete trace+animation for an
HacmeBank vulnerability' packaged as a UnitTest). I will be documenting
these in the next days/weeks. I will also be posting soon details about a
new funding & commercial-services model for O2 and 3rd party companies.

So, have a go, try it and please post on this list as much details on your
'O2 experience' as possible.

Thanks for the help
