Brakeman was first publicly released four years ago today!
In those four years, Brakeman has gradually become a widely-used static analysis security tool for Ruby on Rails, leaving other web frameworks jealous.

Because Brakeman is so old, it still supports Rails 2.3 (2009!) and Ruby 1.8.7 (2008!) while usually adding support for new releases fairly quickly, making it useful for nearly any Rails application. If it doesn’t work for you - please file an issue!
Many thanks to the many people who have contributed to Brakeman. All contributions - patches, bug reports, documentation updates, promoting Brakeman, or even just asking questions - are sincerely appreciated. Lots of gratitude to the open source projects underlying Brakeman and their maintainers, especially Ryan Davis. And a big thank you to the companies who have funded Brakeman’s development!
