Project Filelist for OpenVAS

File Release Notes and Changelog

Release Name: 6.0+beta3

Release Notes
This is the third beta version of the upcoming 6.0 release of the OpenVAS
Manager. It is the central management service between the actual security
scanners and various user clients.

This release continues the efforts towards PostgreSQL support and support of
multiple scanners. It also introduces support for a "Monitor" role and for the
"timezone" keyword in report powerfilters and harmonizes the handling of the
creation time for the different SecInfo object types. A workaround for an issue
with SQLite versions before 3.8.3 is included as is support for task charts.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release:
Hani Benhabiles, Matthew Mundell, Timo Pollmeier and Michael Wiegand.
