Hello,

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
with OpenSSL.

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
 through OpenVAS-Client.
* Updated german translation.
