The OpenVAS developers are happy to announce the release of OpenVAS
Libraries 4.0.4. This is the fourth maintenance release of the
openvas-libraries 4.0 module for the Open Vulnerability Assessment

potential resource leaks and ensures the unscanned_closed setting in
honored for UDP ports as well.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed this release:

Main changes compared to 4.0.3:
* The handling of internal dependencies while linking has been improved,
  parallel builds of openvas-libraries should now work.
* Two potential resource leaks reported by Pavel Sejnoha and Henri
  Doreau have been fixed.
* The setting "unscanned_closed" is now properly applied to UDP ports.
