Hello OpenVAS Community,

with quite a delay after we promised to do a relaunch of the website
finally the preview is here:


Our considerations for the new design are based on lots of user feedback.
OpenVAS specific feedback but also lessons learned from other Free Software

Main aspects of the new design:

 * Fokus the download. Thats what people want always.
 * A bit more fun and less dry information on the main page (we have many
   first-time visitors and want to tell them that this website welcomes
   users, not just developers)
 * Make the left-hand navigation a drop-down-menu (no Javascript, just css!)
   This gains width and apparently will make it easier for users to find their
   way through the website.
 * Translation of all main content into german (we have many german users)

Let us know what you think!
Is it better than the current one (http://www.openvas.org/)?

From the user feedback summary we also learned that there are two other
main needs: A up-to-date Documentation and a better Virtual Appliance.

Once the new website is online, I would like to focus the Virtual Appliance
and build a 32bit one with working WMI and autocreate credentials.

At the same time Geoff and Zaki are working on a new documentation.

All the best
