Release Notes: A possible deadlock occurring under certain conditions at the end of the scan has been corrected. The overall memory usage has been reduced by using a different memory allocator (Linux only). A memory leak in webmirror has been corrected. This release fixes an issue occurring when scanning for IPv6 targets on the same local subnet (Linux). It fixes the cross-references in the /plugins/description API. It switches the default plugin database to "low memory usage" (qdb_mem_usage=low) on new installations.

Release Notes: The major issues addressed in this release include enhanced support for UTF-8 encoding problems in reports and more conservative detection of network congestion errors during scans. A new build for Solaris 10 is available.

Release Notes: This release contains enhancements and minor bugfixes. It also improves stability on all platforms, and solves Windows-specific issues related to installation and packet forgery. From a user perspective, the only change is that it is now possible to specify a separate list of UDP and TCP ports to scan on all targets. This is set in the "Port scanner range" field when you create a new policy or modify an existing one (e.g. if you wanted to scan TCP ports 1-1024 and UDP ports 1-200, the syntax is: "T:1-1024,U:1-200"). A build for FreeBSD version 9 is now available.
