OSVDB 2.0 should be live in a couple hours if everything goes well! 
The new system is actually a complete rewrite....

• Faster interface for mangling and updating vulnerabilities
• Fully integrated portal that allows wiki style updates & editing for 
each field
• Watch list functionality for custom alerting
• Improved vendor dictionary, including new search functionality
• Revamped classification system

Some things to consider if you are currently integrating with OSVDB:
• The current XML dump will be available for several months
• You will need to create an OSVDB account to download the database
• The new database exports will include all vulnerabilities, not just 
• XML schema changes are coming
