File Release Notes and Changelog
Release Name: 5.0+beta2
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.
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.
