Frida 3.0.0 Released ∞release
You may have wondered:
Well, you can now do this:
We just brought you brand new Node.js bindings, and they are fully asynchronous:
So, brand new Node.js bindings; awesome! We did not stop there, however. But first, a few words about the future. I am excited to announce that I have just started a company with the goal of sponsoring part-time development of Frida. By offering reverse-engineering and software development expertise, the goal is to generate enough revenue to pay my bills and leave some time to work on Frida. Longer term I’m hoping there will also be demand for help adding features or integrating Frida into third-party products. In the meantime, however, if you know someone looking for reverse-engineering or software development expertise, I would really appreciate it if you could kindly refer them to get in touch. Please see my CV for details.
That aside, let’s get back to the release. Next up: 32-bit Linux support! Even Stalker has been ported. Not just that, the Linux backend can even do cross-architecture injection like we do on the other platforms. This means a 64-bit Frida process, e.g. your Python interpreter, can inject into a 32-bit process. The other direction works too.
- frida-server ports are now recycled, so if you’re using Frida on Android you won’t have to keep forwarding ports unless you’re actually attaching to multiple processes at the same time.
- Linux and Android
spawn()support has been improved to also support PIE binaries.
- Android stability and compatibility improvements.
- Mac and Linux build system have been revamped, and make it easy to build just the parts that you care about; and maybe even some components you didn’t even know were there that were previously not built by default.
- Python bindings have a minor simplification so instead of
frida.attach(pid).session.create_script()it’s simply just
frida.attach(pid).create_script(). This is just like in the brand new Node.js bindings, and the reason we had to bump the major version.
That’s the gist of it. Please help spread the word by sharing this post across the inter-webs. We’re still quite small as an open source project, so word-of-mouth marketing means a lot to us.
