On the payload side, we are slowly but surely expanding Meterpreter support to platforms beyond Windows. Philip Sanderson, one of our community developers, has done an amazing job of completing the POSIX Meterpreter payload, and we are in the process of integrating his work into the framework.
Over the last few months we have also added native PHP and Java payloads, making it easier than ever to obtain advanced functionality through web application and Java server vulnerabilities. We are still investing resources into exploit coverage; both through dedicated exploit engineer, and by working with the community to port more exploits to the Metasploit platform.
