File Release Notes and Changelog
Release Name: 5.0.2
This is the second maintenance release of the openvas-scanner 5.0 module for the Open Vulnerability Assessment System release 8 (OpenVAS-8). This release increases the minimum required version of OpenVAS Libraries to 8.0.2. It uses new functionality from OpenVAS Libraries to set the target hosts FQDN based on a reverse DNS lookup. It also fixes an issue which caused NVTs to hang under certain circumstances. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this release: Hani Benhabiles, Miguel Angel Cabrera Moya and Michael Wiegand.
Main changes compared to 5.0.1: * The required minimum OpenVAS Libraries version has increased to 8.0.2. * The target FQDN is now set to the result of a reverse DNS lookup on the IP when available. * An issue which caused NVTs to hang on open, but unresponsive ports due to the timeout not being set correctly has been fixed. * An issue which caused the loading handler process to live on even after the parent process had been killed has been fixed. * An issue which prevented openvas-scanner from building with GLib =< 2.28 has been addressed
