This release contains the following fixes and improvements :

- nessusd would stop in a middle of a scan if the log file is bigger than 2 gigabytes

- nessusd would stop in a middle of a scan due to a hard to trigger one-byte memory overwrite issue

- ping/packet forgery would fail when scanning a network over a NIC which was not enabled when nessusd initially started up

- performance problems would arise when reading/writing KB files when scanning big networks

- nasl -T - script.nasl now makes script debugging easier

- Slightly faster initial plugins processing

- More robust plugins database backend

- On Mac OS X, users can be managed graphically thru the Nessus Server Manager program

- Updated the plugins distributed with the archive

Nessus 3.0.3 is available immediately for Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, Solaris and as a public beta for Microsoft Windows.
