Appendix C. WHAT’S NEW IN IDA 5.3
As this book was nearing completion, the beta release of IDA version 5.3 was announced. Fortunately, the IDA user interface remains largely unchanged, and the contents of the book apply equally to the use of IDA 5.3. This appendix details some of the new features that have been introduced in the latest version of IDA. Some of the announced features are not available as part of the beta release but are discussed here based on information supplied by Hex-Rays. In general, the changes present in version 5.3 offer additional or improved capabilities rather than drastic changes to any existing capabilities.
