New year, new Binary Ninja version, new survey and sweepstakes. Take the survey to help shape the future of reverse engineering tools and have a chance to win some great prizes! The survey starts today, January 26, 2023 and will end on February 8, 2023 at 12pm EST.
- Grand Prizes: One (1) winner will receive a Binary Ninja Commercial named license (may be substituted for a license extension if the winner has an existing license)
- Runners Up: Five (5) winners will receive a Binary Ninja t-shirt or can receive or extend a personal license
It’s been way too long since our last survey (September 2021) and wow, has Binary Ninja changed. Since then we’ve released: Binary Ninja 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, and — most recently — 3.3. Your feedback has been crucial to our decision making. We’ve listened to your feedback and we’ve addressed most of it, but we’re sure you have new things to tell us and we want to hear them.
We distilled some of the most frequent requests for Binary Ninja from the last survey into the following list and I’m happy to say we’ve addressed each of them in very significant ways:
- Decompile to C (not just HLIL)
- Memory/CPU Performance
- Type parser issues
- Window Layout Options
- Stack View
- Apple Silicon
- HLIL/Decompilation improvements
- Type Lib/Func Sig improvements
- Enumeration support
- Personal being single-threaded
We’re really looking forward to all of your feedback and the improvements that will come as a result over the coming year!
New User Study
In addition to the survey we’re also conducting another series of user studies. This time, we’d like to evaluate individuals using either IDA or Ghidra. The study will last 30 minutes and will require you to share your screen while you open a binary and start working. We will ask some questions about what you’re doing and why. If you’re interested in participating, please indicate so in the survey.
