File Release Notes and Changelog
Release Name: 5.1+beta2
This is the second beta release of the openvas-scanner 5.1 module for the Open Vulnerability Assessment System (OpenVAS). It will be part of the upcoming "OpenVAS-9". Main new feature of this release is the switch from openssl based certificate management scripts to a GNUTLS (certtool) based one. Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release: Hani Benhabiles, Sven Haardiek, Jan-Oliver Wagner and Michael Wiegand.
Main changes compared to 5.0beta1: * Install "openvas-mkcert-client" FHS compliant. * Improve openvas-manage-certs script. The script is now able to set up a certificate infrastructure for an OpenVAS installation, create additional certificates, verify the installation and perform other certificate related tasks while being highly configurable at run time through environment variables or a configuration file. * Retire openvas-mkcert and openvas-mkcert-client now that their replacement openvas-manage-certs is ready for use. This also means that openssl is not required anymore, instead gnutls (certtool) is now also used for the certificate management scripts. * Improved support for IPv6. * Simplify project version setting. Use SVN version at build time in binary instead of SVN version at configuration time. Make SVN revision retrieval work with SVN >= 1.7. * Apply -Wextra for builds.
