                  Release announcement


This Rapid7® NeXpose® update applies the latest JRE upgrade to your NeXpose system.


These release notes document what's new in the next NeXpose release. Your NeXpose installation will automatically download and install content updates. If you have enabled NeXpose to install product updates, it will do so as well. See the third FAQ.


Reminder: Deadline to complete your database migration is July 1


If you have not migrated yet: All upcoming releases of NeXpose will require you to perform the PostgreSQL 9 database migration. After July 1 your NeXpose installation will be ineligible to receive any content or product updates going forward. Over time, this will result in decreased accuracy and validity of your results and reporting.

To execute the migration, first download and review the guide Migrating the NeXpose Database. This document includes detailed instructions on how to prepare for, run, and monitor the migration.


After reviewing the guide, go to the Database Migration page, which you can access by clicking the maintenance link on the Administration page of the console Web interface. When you are ready to execute the migration, click the Start Migration button. Follow the migration guide for instructions throughout the process.

JRE upgrade

This update applies the Oracle Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.6.0_25 upgrade to your NeXpose system. The upgrade features a number of stability and performance improvements, and it  prepares your system for a major upcoming release. After NeXpose applies the update, it will restart automatically.

After the update and restart, your installation directory will contain a _jvm1.6.0_25 directory.
