HAVP 0.58 released
I finished performance testing and improve performance for large KEEPBACKBUFFER e.g. 100000 Byte. The bottleneck is the hard disk. You should use a fast hard disk or a ramdisk. I will write a HOWTO and put it under Ideas.

Havp 0.54 released

I noticed some Distributions have problems with phtread and hard locking files! I try to figure out why. It works well with SuSE but Mandrake has problems so viruses will not be detected.
I release HAVP 0.54 and switch from phtread to fork. This should work with all distribution. I guess using fork is a better choice.
Please try to detect the eicar virus. If this fails you have to update to HAVP 0.54!!
