Hi folks,

The OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is an easy to use integrated
penetration testing tool for finding vulnerabilities in web
applications.

It is designed to be used by people with a wide range of security
experience and as such is ideal for developers and functional testers
who are new to penetration testing as well as being a useful addition
to an experienced pen testers toolbox.

OWASP ZAP 2.0.0 is now available :

 * An integrated add-ons marketplace
 * A replacement for the 'standard' Spider
 * A new 'Ajax' spider
 * Web Socket support
 * Session awareness
 * Quick Start tab
 * User defined Contexts
 * Session scope
 * Different modes
 * A scripting console
 * Authentication handling
 * More API support
