The OpenVAS developers are happy to announce the release of OpenVAS
Manager 2.0.4. This is the fourth maintenance release of the
openvas-manager 2.0 module for the Open Vulnerability Assessment System
release 4 (OpenVAS-4). The OpenVAS Manager is the central management
service between the actual security scanner and various user clients.

This release fixes a number of issues discovered after the release of
openvas-manager 2.0.3.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release:
Stephan Kleine, Matthew Mundell and Michael Wiegand.

Main changes since 2.0.3:
* Compiler warnings from gcc 4.6 discovered by Stephan Kleine were addressed.
* The mail addresses supplied for an email escalator are now used in the
  correct order.
* Privilege dropping is now done directly and not via the shell.
* A bug which caused the Manager to fail to start when launched without
  a database has been fixed.
* A race condition which caused empty reports from the slave when
  running in master-slave mode under certain conditions has been fixed.
* A bug which caused the timestamp of the scan end not to be written to
  the Manager database when running a task with an escalator under
  certain conditions has been fixed.

The source tarball for this release is available for download from the
OpenVAS website at http://www.openvas.org/. Binary packages for major
GNU/Linux distributions by third parties are expected in the following
