3.0.3 What's in there and when it's released
Maltego 3.0.3 will be released before the end of this year (or perhaps in the first week of 2011). There is good news and bad news. The bad news is that 3.0.3 will not really have any new features. The good news is that it is a 'performance and stability' release. Which means - it will be fast. Very fast. And stable, very stable.
We've been working for the last 3 weeks with one goal in mind - making Maltego work better with large graphs. The target is to comfortably work with 10K node graphs on a 1GB JVM and Dual Core processor. And we're getting there. Of course, if you happen to own an I7 with 8GB of RAM, your experience will be much better and you'll be able to handle many more nodes. The side effect is that smaller graphs will be super fast to navigate, select and run transforms on.
We've also made a list of 'well known bugs' that have never made it to the priority list. Things that irritate us but that we've learn to live with. Many of these will be squashed. It's just that time now - time to grow up and fix it. It's hard to not add features - there are so many that we all want in Maltego.
New transforms coming + Shodan transforms
We are also releasing some new transforms this coming week. We've been sitting on a couple for a while and now it's time to make them public. Lastly it was GREAT to see that the folks of Sodan have adopted the TDS and made some transforms. This is exactly what we had in mind with the TDS.
