the OpenVAS developers are happy to announce the release of
openvas-plugins 1.0.5. This release is a maintenance release with an
updated NVT collection.

As with all openvas-plugins releases, it is recommended that you execute
the openvas-nvt-sync tool provided by the openvas-server component after
installing this release to ensure that your OpenVAS installation has
access to the latest NVTs.

Main changes from 1.0.4 are:

* A large number of new NVTs has been added.
* A large number of new NVTs has been updated.
* Several NVTs written in C have been updated to improve their 64-bit
  cleanliness and to build more reliable. This introduces a new
  dependency on glib to openvas-plugins.
* Improved host OS detection when gathering package information from a
  remote host.
* Various bugfixes.
* Code cleanup.
* Updated packaging for Debian.
