    Nessus 1.2
    Posted on Sunday, June 02 @ 18:16:52 BST

    In case you were wondering where the new Nessus packages are... they're not in unstable due to a license problem (old-style BSD advertizing clause conflicts with the GPL, sigh).

    But, you can get the packages from the maintainer who will in the interest of users consider the conflict implied nonexistent and pretend he has a license to actually distribute the stuff 🙂

    (Read more for sources.list lines.)

    deb ./
    deb-src ./

    BTW I'll package 1.2.1 soon.

    I guess it's some library dependency, since nessus itself is GPL... OpenSSL? Is this new gnutls thing compatible with openssl, or would it require significant reworking?
