The OpenVAS developers are happy to announce the seventh maintenance
release of the openvas-libraries 4.0 module for the Open Vulnerability
Assessment System (OpenVAS).

This release corrects the use of gnutls function calls, adds support for
adding tag contents to the description of a result and updates the FSF
address in a number of files.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed this release:
Michel Ambroz, Henri Doreau, Stephan Kleine, Jan-Oliver Wagner and
Michael Wiegand.

Main changes compared to 4.0.6:
* Replaced deprecated gnutls function calls by proper replacements
  to simplify build process.
* Added scanner preferences result_prepend_tags and result_append_tags
  to prepend or append tag contents to the description of a result. This
  is convenience functionality in preparation for the breaking up of the
  NVT description block and adding proper handling of refined meta
  information all over the OpenVAS Framework.
* The licenses in a number of files have been updated to
  contain the most recent address of the Free Software Foundation.

The source tarball for this release along with checksums and signatures
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 weeks.
