In this release, the Host Asset List API and host List Detection API are updated to optionally include the OS hostname in the response, in case of an authenticated scan. We have also renamed the linux_hostname parameter to os_hostname to keep it as generic parameter for OS detection.

In this release, this is achieved through detection of below listed QIDs during the authenticated scans.
