OpenVAS Administrator 1.0.1 released

The OpenVAS developers are happy to announce the first maintenance release for the 1.0 series of the Administrator module for the Open Vulnerability Assessment System (OpenVAS).

It improves LDAP-based authentication and adds self-documentation feature for the OpenVAS Administration Protocol (OAP) 1.0.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release: Matthew Mundell, Michael Wiegand, Jan-Oliver Wagner and Felix Wolfsteller.

Main changes since 1.0.0:
* Fixed behaviour for ldap-based authentication for Admin role.
* Added protocol documentation for OAP (html and rnc format,
can be build with "make doc").
* Code hardening at compile time is now the default.
* Harmonized output of "--version" with other modules.

The source tarball for this release is available for download from the OpenVAS website at Binary packages for major GNU/Linux distributions by third parties are expected in the following weeks.
