File Release Notes and Changelog
Release Name: 8.0.7
This is the seventh maintenance release of the openvas-libraries 8.0 module for the Open Vulnerability Assessment System 8 (OpenVAS-8). This release changes the default fallback cipher suite to address issues with the communication between OpenVAS modules after an update of the GnuTLS library. It also adds support for generating SHA256 check sums to the NASL language and addresses other minor issues. Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release: Benoît Allard, Hani Benhabiles, Guillaume Castagnino, Christian Fischer and Jan-Oliver Wagner.
Main changes compared to 8.0.6: * The default fallback cipher suite has been changed from 'SECURE' to 'NORMAL' to be consistent with the (documented) behaviour of the GnuTLS library. This solves an issue where OpenVAS modules were unable to communicate after an update of the GnuTLS library. * Support for generating SHA256 check sums in NASL has been added. * A number of compiler warnings have been addressed. * Documentation has been updated.
