- Updated to 2.0.4

  * The progress bar showing the scan progress now works correctly.
  * The German translation has been updated.
  * The Credentials Manager for Local Security Checks has been improved and is now
    able to create packages which add users to remote systems 
  * A Severity Override Manager has been added, including right-mouse-button actions
    in the report to specific severity overrides easily. The original scan results
    will never be changed, so it is safe to test the severity overrides.
  * A new "Extras" menu has been added and collects all "managers":
    The LSC Credentials Manager, the Severity Override Manager and
    the SLAD Install Manager.
  * A bug which caused the client complain about missing files when starting a
    scan on a fresh installation has been fixed.

    certain distributions has been fixed (relevant for packagers).
  * OpenVAS-Client is now able to remember more than one server certificate.
  * The timeout-setting functionality has been made more robust. It has been moved
    to the plugin info dialog to make accessing this functionality easier.
  * A counter column for log messages has been added.
  * XML exports: A bug ( which caused a corrupted
    protocol attribute during XML export when service names contained slashes has
    been fixed. This also fixes another bug which caused service names to show up
    in the protocol attribute.
  * A bug which prevented the display of signatures due to sometimes different
    "fingerprint" lengths has been fixed.
  * A bug which prevented the client from correctly determining certain server
    preference settings has been fixed.
  * Established automated source code documentation. HTML-Version is available
  * Openvas-client now uses the IANA-assigned port 9390 for communication
    with the server.
  * A bug ( which cause a segmentation fault when
    trying to list preferences or plugins on the command line without enabling
    batch mode has been fixed. 
  * Support for improved management of SSH credentials has been added in
    accordance with Change Request #20 (
  * The "Silent Dependencies" option now defaults to "no". Setting this option to
    "yes" causes possible error messages from NVTs executed as dependencies to not
    show up in client which is not desirable from a security viewpoint.
