Release Name: 5.0.2

Release Notes
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.
Change Log
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
