Hi,

I was testing w3af for some time because it was next tool i wanted to write about on my blog and yes it freez time to time because of bad updates etc... Problem comes when you run scan against target with a lot of URL's. I think that this tool need update, and support for new python version etc ...but as you know in case like this i make direct contact with developers and most of them say that they stopped working on ...said, but because of that we have removed some tools from BBox.

This is last news from developer site :

"w3af - working behind the scenes - Mon, 15 Oct 2012 13:10:06 GMT
Many have been asking about a new release, others have asked if the project was still alive (latest news item was in May). The real situation is that we've been working harder than ever and we don't have much time for writing news :) Hang on there and read the mailing lists, great improvements are just around the corner!"

If they make update, dear weVeg, we can update too :)
