The alerts tab shows alerts generated by Burp's tools. This information may be useful to troubleshoot network connection or other problems.
If the same alert is generated more than once in succession, the alerts are consolidated into a single entry in the table, with a counter showing the number of times the alert was generated.

This release introduces native platform installers for Windows, Linux and OS X. These install Burp together with a private Java runtime environment, so you don't need to worry about installing or updating Java. The installation of Burp is fully integrated with standard OS features (start menu, dock, taskbar etc.), making it easier to launch Burp without use of the command line.
