The OpenVAS developers are happy to announce the sixth maintenance
release of the openvas-manager 2.0 and 3.0 modules for the Open
Vulnerability Assessment System release 4 resp. 5. The OpenVAS Manager
is the central management service between the actual security scanner
and various user clients.

The releases fix an issue which caused an error when getting nvts with
details when one nvt had an unescaped ampersand in the xref field.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release:
Hani Benhabiles

Main changes since 2.0.5 and 3.0.5:
* Escape xrefs before sending xml for nvts.

The source tarballs for the releases along with checksums and signatures
are 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.
