Hello folks,

  we are thrilled to announce the GA for the SCAP Security Guide of version 0.1.23
-- the highlights for this release include:

* Start porting of PCI-DSS profile from RHEL-6 to RHEL-7
* Add OVAL-5.11 language support for RHEL-7 product if underlying system's oscap version supports OVAL-5.11 already
* Start generating benchmarks for derivative OSes (CentOS, Scientific Linux)
* Get rid of using symbolic links mechanism for OVAL checks shared across multiple products (RHEL/6, RHEL/7, and Fedora)
* Enhance XML files validation performed via make validate target for all products
  (optimize speed, validate all XML files against schematron where possible etc.)
