The OpenVAS developers are happy to announce the release of openvas-server
2.0.3. This is the third maintenance release of the openvas-server module for
the Open Vulnerability Assessment System (OpenVAS) 2.0-series.

It fixes an issues concerning concurrent windows local security
checks and improves support for OVAL definitions. This release
also adds the "mandatory keys" feature in order to allow better
performance, getting into effect with future NVTs.

Effects when installing this version:

* Dependencies: openvas-server 2.0.3 requires openvas-libraries 2.0.4 and
  openvas-libnasl 2.0.2. You need to install these prior to openvas-server
  2.0.3. Please read about the effects for these two modules.

Main changes since 2.0.2:

* OVAL support has been improved.
* Support for mandatory keys in NVTs has been added in accordance with Change
  Request #39 (http://openvas.org/openvas-cr-39.html).


* Closed bug #779 (https://bugs.openvas.org/799).
  This solves serious issues that occurred when running 'parallel' checks
  against windows hosts.
* Closed a bug that prevented correct ovaldi execution in certain situations.
* Closed a bug that could lead to incorrect summary and copyright information
  of OVAL definition files.
