That's not all, please see the changelog for details.

From the FAQ:
Q: What's up with Rootkit Hunter? I haven't seen any updates in *ages*!
A: In the second quarter (IIRC) of 2006 the founder of Rootkit Hunter found out the hard way maintaining FOSS can be difficult when RL commitments overrule. Management of the project (read: responsability ;-p) was taken over by unSpawn and a project group comprising of developers and testers was formed. The Rootkit Hunter project team is committed to making sure development continues.

My sincere thanks to all who made this project and this release possible: the Rootkit Hunter project team, all contributors and testers, all RKH users, those who kept nagging us for a release,, Sourceforge for unfaltering support and Michael Boelen for providing RKH and relinquishing control.

Nota bene: eight of the nine current team members are from LQ :-]
