user-contributed code and patches.
We will continue to run the v1.3 Beacon Central Server at:

user-contributed code and patches on the main DAST website for the
foreseeable future, too, so please continue to contribute to the project as

For those of you interested in contributing code, a list of features we've
seen the need for or have already had requested by the user community
(that's you guys) is up at:
Thanks for all your help and support, and I hope the Beacon continues to be
a useful and helpful diagnostic tool for you!
