The first release candidate of the long awaited
ClamAV 0.90 is ready for general testing!
The 0.9x series introduces lots of improvements
in terms of detection rate and performance, like
support for many new packers and decryptors, RAR3
and SIS archives, and a new phishing signatures
format that proves to be very effective.
The email decoding has been improved to reduce
both the memory requirements and the time taken
to process attachments.
We have been working hard also on the ClamAV
Virus Database: we now have more than 73.000
signatures and we keep on reviewing hundreds of
To cope with the increasing size of the database
and with the high frequency of new CVD releases,
freshclam now supports scripted updates: only the
differences between two releases of the CVD are
downloaded. This dramatically reduces traffic on
our mirrors and will allow us to release even
more updates in the future.
Download the latest release candidate and test
the new experimental code (use
./configure --enable-experimental at compile
time). We need your feedback!
