IDA is the Interactive DisAssembler: the world's smartest and most feature-full disassembler, which many software security specialists are familiar with. Written entirely in C++, IDA runs on the three major operating systems: Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. IDA is also the solid foundation on which our second product, the Hex-Rays decompiler, is built. The unique Hex-Rays decompiler delivers on the promise of high level representation of binary executables. It can handle real world code. It is real.

Welcome to IDA 7.0!
The biggest news is that IDA is a native 64-bit application! First of all it means that now it can eat all memory of your computer and thrash it :) But jokes aside, switching to 64-bit aligns IDA with other modern software and makes it more compatible with the rest of the world. For example, IDAPython integration will be easier and more streamlined because many operating systems nowadays come with the 64-bit Python preinstalled (32-bit Python won't work anymore).

Second, we took this change as an opportunity (since old 32-bit plugins won't work with 64-bit IDA anyway) to clean up the IDA API, make it more consistent and less confusing. If we failed or succeeded is to be seen, but we ourselves like the new API much more. The fundamental concepts remain the same and IDA did not lose any bit of its functionality during the cleanup. We minutely tested all changes and ensured that all our tests continue to pass as before or better. We also tried to make our 3 APIs: C++, Python, and IDC, to be closer to each other. Function names and their functionality are the same in most cases, but we tried to stay pythonic in Python and C++-ish in the C++ interface. Since the changes are huge and it is easy to lose your way, we prepared a Porting guide from the IDA 4.9-6.x API to the IDA 7.0 API which explains what has changed and how. We hope that it will greatly help you when porting your plugins to the new 7.0 API.

For Python and IDC we implemented a compatibility layer that will help you with your scripts. Most of them should run fine on 7.0 with very minor or no changes. We plan to turn off the compatibility layer in the next release, so please dedicate some of your time to port your scripts to run without it. See the IDA 7.0: IDAPython backward-compatibility with 6.95 APIs page for more info.

To make the transition even smoother, we are also publishing a 32-bit version of IDA. It can (and should) be only used to run old 32-bit plugins while you are porting them to 64-bit. The 32-bit version of IDA can read v7 databases but it lacks some very nice new features. Let us introduce them now.

Now IDA is a truly international application that can speak all languages of the world because it uses UTF-8 everywhere. All scripts and plugins can use it. You can use UTF-8 in the disassembly listing, including comments or even the function names. This is not what we advise, therefore odd characters in names require some fine tuning. See the IDA 7.0: Automatic discovery of string literals during auto-analysis page for all the gory details.

By the way, the existing databases will have to be upgraded to benefit from the UTF-8 encoding. We tried to make the upgrade process as simple as before but there is a catch: since old databases could use any encoding, IDA has to guess the old encoding on the fly. To learn how to help IDA with this error prone task, see the IDA 7.0: Internationalization page.

IDA Pro 7.0 + All Decompilers Full

IDA now parses and annotates exception handling information and RTTI. We plan to improve the decompiler and IDA to take advantage of this information in the future.

IDA Pro 7.0 + All Decompilers Full

We greatly improved Objective C support both in IDA and the Decompiler. Now the metadata can be parsed on demand, not only at the loading time. The decompiler produces much nicer output:

BUGFIX: gdb: the gdb debugger could misdetect some files as 64-bit for some architectures
BUGFIX: get_import_module_name() could return true and empty module name
BUGFIX: hexview: rendering, and synchronization between an IDA View & an Hex View, could be erroneous for processors with bytes that consist of more than 8 bits
BUGFIX: hexview: when a line starts by blanks (because it is the beginning of a segment, and that segment is not aligned on the same alignment of the view), the line contents could be shifted
BUGFIX: hexview: when scrolling, some lines could be duplicated if they started at an unaligned address
BUGFIX: hexview: when standing on an invalid position (i.e., BADADDR), pressing twice in a row would successfully enter edit mode (it should not)

BUGFIX: idc: %f format specifier was not honoring the width and precision
BUGFIX: idc: ida could crash when adding a struct member which is a pointer to the struct itself
BUGFIX: if the same enum member was present in different tils but it had different values, it was not always possible to select it
BUGFIX: if the user cancels the attach-process selection dialog and then terminates the debugger server, then ida would continue to assume that the connection to the debugger server is intact
BUGFIX: in rare cases IDA could crash during rebasing
BUGFIX: in the "Structures" view, allow changing the type of an array of elements, if that type can fit in the size of the array
BUGFIX: installer: installation on a Windows machine without installed Python would fail to install Python
BUGFIX: kernel: search_* functions were not honoring the SEARCH_NOSHOW flag
BUGFIX: load_plugin() could fail to load a plugin from an alternate plugin directory
BUGFIX: loading of some PE+ files was taking too long time
BUGFIX: mac debugger was broken on OSX Sierra
BUGFIX: move_segm() would not move a segment into a free area under debugger in some cases
BUGFIX: moving the vertical scrollbar's thumb in Hex-Rays (or source-level debugging) views, could cause the view to jump to unexpected locations
BUGFIX: moving the vertical scrollbar's thumb to the very bottom in Hex-Rays (or source-level debugging) views, could fail to show the last line of code
BUGFIX: nec v850: IDA could generate wrong xrefs for some of reg+N operands
BUGFIX: noType() on an instruction operand, could remove the 'sign' or 'bitwise-negation' representation of the other operand in the process
BUGFIX: objc parser would not decode long types properly
BUGFIX: on Linux, the installer would unpack most of the precompiled Python runtime, even when asked not to
BUGFIX: on some versions of OSX, large stack traces could be incomplete
BUGFIX: pc: SP analysis could fail in functions with basic blocks unreachable from entry point such as exception handlers
BUGFIX: Linux/OS X: search results in the help viewer were always labelled "Untitled"
BUGFIX: set_member_type() was not checking for recursive struct nesting and could crash
BUGFIX: setting a breakpoint condition through "update_bpt()" could cause the condition to be unusable at breakpoint trigger-time
BUGFIX: setting a struct member type as an array without explicit size (like int[]) would set the member size to be zero; this is not what we usually want
BUGFIX: source debugging: the line number printed in the status bar was off by 1 from the number printed in the leftmost column
BUGFIX: source debugging: the status bar would show the file offset, but not the current address
BUGFIX: stack tracing was broken for x86_64
BUGFIX: the PDB plugin could cause internal error if called with invalid data (now it only results in a non-fatal warning)
BUGFIX: the SNES loader could interfere and cause IDA to exit on very large files (> 2GB)
BUGFIX: the decompiler would not take into account wide user-specified variables and would create additional variables that would overlap with them
BUGFIX: the navband could disappear when using a debugger that uses manual memory regions (e.g. iOS or GDB)
BUGFIX: the presence of the decompiler plugin on the disk without a license in ida.key would lead to error
BUGFIX: tms320c6: branch detection for bnop instructions was flawed
BUGFIX: type information propagation from unnamed array function parameters would result in incorrectly named data
BUGFIX: ui/qt: "Jump in new hex window" wouldn't jump to the right address
BUGFIX: ui/qt: IDA could leave F11-style fullscreen while navigating around and/or performing other actions
BUGFIX: ui/qt: If IDA encountered an error at startup, it might not have had time to create the taskbar icon yet, sometimes leaving that error/warning dialog hard to reach
BUGFIX: ui/qt: Using special mouse buttons 4 & 5 to move forward & backward in history, would change the cursor coordinates
BUGFIX: ui/qt: deleting a script snippet would mark the one that gets selected afterwards as 'modified'
BUGFIX: ui/qt: double-clicking on the 1st member of a struct, would cause the view to jump
BUGFIX: ui/qt: it was impossible to select the font from some listing widgets
BUGFIX: ui/qt: on Windows or OSX when a screen reader is used (e.g., JAWS or VoiceOver), the IDA View-A will automatically switch to flat listing since graph views are not accessible
BUGFIX: ui: ExportData action would silently overwite the output file if it already existed
BUGFIX: ui: IDA could lose the preferences for synchronization between views (and possibly registers, in case of debugging.)
BUGFIX: ui: OSX: idaq64 would always launch idaq if a file was dragged onto the dock icon
BUGFIX: ui: On Windows, the "Load a new file" dialog wouldn't create a taskbar entry, meaning it could be hard to find it on the desktop if another window showed up in front
BUGFIX: ui: Renaming an unsaved script snippet could lose its contents
BUGFIX: ui: The 'Default CLI' wouldn't be applied if IDA opened w/o a database
BUGFIX: ui: re-enabled building graph of code and data xrefs to current address
BUGFIX: ui: the "Functions window" could spend too much time refreshing the list of function names, even when no functions were modified
BUGFIX: ui: the "Segment registers" view had fixed minimum size, meaning it was impossible to resize other tabs in case it was opened in a tabbed view
BUGFIX: version info in idaq for windows was stored incorrectly
BUGFIX: when debugging a macho shared lib, IDA could throw INTERR(40201) if the application exited prematurely
BUGFIX: when debugging, toggling breakpoints could become impossible if the last closed widget was a hex view or stack view
BUGFIX: windbg: some registers (typically ST0) could lose their value after stepping
