File Release Notes and Changelog

Release Name: 5.0+beta2

Release Notes
This is the second beta release of the openvas-scanner 5.0 module for the Open
Vulnerability Assessment System (OpenVAS). It will be part of the upcoming
"OpenVAS-8".

This release contains further comprehensive code-cleanups, especially regarding
internal calls for memory management. It also removes an exception for NVTs from
the ACT_SETTINGS category regarding implicit launches during a scan and makes
the location of the redis socket configurable.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release:
Hani Benhabiles, Henri Doreau, Jan-Oliver Wagner and Michael Wiegand.
Change Log
Main changes compared to 5.0+beta1:
* The scanner will no longer implicitly launch NVTs from the ACT_SETTINGS
  category when scanning.
* Internal memory management now uses the appropriate glib functions instead of
  the custom implementation provided by openvas-libraries used previously.
* The location of the redis socket is now configurable.
* Further comprehensive code-cleanups.
