Comment On This Article

Version 2.1 of the LLVM-based Capstone Disassembly Framework is now available.

Capstone was previously covered on Phoronix as an interesting disassembly framework that aims to be "the ultimate disassembly engine for binary analysis" and reverse-engineering. Capstone 2.1 was released this past week and it furthers the decompiler along even more.

Capstone 2.1's library size is around 40% smaller while the framework is faster, supports "diet" compilation to minimize the framework for embedding into an OS kernel or firmware, reduces system memory usage, improved Python and Java bindings, and many bug-fixes.

More details on Capstone 2.1 can be discovered from the release announcement at Capstone-Engine.org.
