File Release Notes and Changelog
Release Name: 8.0.2
This is the second maintenance release of the openvas-libraries 8.0 module for the Open Vulnerability Assessment System 8 (OpenVAS-8). This release adds support for retrieving the target hostname via a reverse DNS lookup and fixes a segmentation fault when using regular expressions as well as addressing several build issues. Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release: Hani Benhabiles, Miguel Angel Cabrera Moya and Michael Wiegand.
Main changes compared to 8.0.1: * Support for retrieving the target hostname through a reverse DNS lookup has been added. * A memory issue which caused segmentation faults when using regular expression in certain circumstances has been fixed. * A build issue with determining linker flags for libsnmp has been addressed. * Superfluous linker flags reported by openvas-libraries through pkg-config have been removed to avoid overlinking. * An issue which prevented openvas-libraries from building with GLib =< 2.30 has been addressed.
