Thank you for your feedback und for helping us testing the beta release. I 
have a pretty good idea as to what might cause this, I'll look into it.

There are a few changes in 2.0, most notable the switch to the OID-based 
scheme for the NVT-IDs and the availability of NVT signature IDs in the 
client. The XML will stay roughly the same, but you will have to make sure 
your parser can handle OIDs and you might want to update parser if you want 
to use the signature IDs.
