Portswigger released BurpSuite 2020.4 Pro Version with support TLS 1,3 and automatic pretty-printing of JSON, XML, HTML, CSS and Javascript.

Burp Suite is a leading range of cybersecurity softwares by PortSwigger. It is the best suite for Cyber security researchers, Peneteration Testers and Bug hunters.

This release mainly provides usability improvements to the HTTP message editor. It also upgrades both Java support and Burp Scanner’s embedded browser version.

HTTP message editor

The HTTP message editor now supports pretty printing of JSON, XML, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Unformatted JSON data, for example, would previously be displayed as follows:

But as of version 2020.4, all of the supported formats mentioned above are prettified by default, meaning the JSON data in our example would now be displayed as follows:

You can toggle pretty printing on and off by clicking the “Pretty” button at the bottom of the editor. Alternatively, if you would prefer not to use pretty printing by default, you can disable this setting under “User options” > “Display” > “HTTP Message Display”.

Java support

As of this release, now it is support Java 13. Unfortunately, it will no longer be able to support Java 8. The vast majority of users will be unaffected by this change.
