we have taken care that those parts of openvas-libraries that are needed
by openvas-cli and by gsa-desktop compile for Windows.
Also, openvas-cli and gsa-desktop compile for Windows.

Next week we should have a gsa-desktop 0.2.0. We hope to upload windows
installer for this version and for cli as well next week.

gsa-desktop does not yet implement all of OMP. The missing part will
follow step by step.

Just wait, get always newest release, test and let us know about bugs ;-)
