AMaViS-ng 0.1 released

I have released the first version of AMaViS-ng. This is a modular
rewrite of amavis-perl/amavisd that allows for different MTA and
antivirus setups, on the same codebase.

What is different from amavisd/amavis-perl
------------------------------------------
* No build-time configuration. All configuration is done at run-rime
via a INI-style configuration file.

* The parts of AMaViS-ng are built as Perl modules with well-defined
intrfaces. This will hopefully make it easier to extend it.... read more
