capa v6.0.0a1


Recommended Posts


capa v6.0 brings many bug fixes and quality improvements, including 64 rule updates and 26 new rules. We're now publishing to PyPI via Trusted Publishing and have migrated to using a pyproject.toml file. @Aayush-Goel-04 contributed a lot of new code across many files, so please welcome them to the project, along with @anders-v @crowface28 @dkelly2e @RonnieSalomonsen and @ejfocampo as first-time rule contributors!

For those that use capa as a library, we've introduced some limited breaking changes that better represent data types (versus less-structured data like dictionaries and strings). With the recent deprecation, we've also dropped support for Python 3.7.
