OpenVAS-Client is a successor of NessusClient.
The fork happened with NessusClient CVS HEAD 20070704.
The reason was that the original authors of NessusClient decided
to stop active development for this (GTK-based) NessusClient in
favour of a newly written QT-based version released as propietary software.
OpenVAS-Client can be used as a client for OpenVAS as well as for Nessus server.
OpenVAS-Client is licensed under GNU GPLv2 and may be linked
Release 0.9.1 is a cleanup and minor improvements release.
This release is the basis for packaging tests
and further translations into other languages.
Except for translations and bug fixes identified
though packaging/testing no changes are planned
for the major 1.0.0 release.
Main changes since 0.9.0:
* Removed users manual which now forms a package
of its own ("openvas-manual").
* Decreased memory consumption considerably for
the case when looking into many different reports
with more or less the same plugins.
* Added menu entry to execute "sladinstaller" GUI.
SLAD is the Security Local Auditing Daemon which
comes with some NASL scripts and thus can now be fully managed
* Updated german translation.
