The cygwin clamav packages (Clam AntiVirus - GPL anti-virus toolkit) has
been updated to 0.90-1. This is a new upstream release.

"The ClamAV team is proud to announce the long awaited ClamAV 0.90. This 
version introduces lots of new interesting features and marks a big step 
forward in the development of our antivirus engine.

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."

Clam AntiVirus is an anti-virus toolkit for Unix. The main purpose of
this software is the integration with mail servers (attachment
scanning). The package provides a flexible and scalable multi-threaded
daemon, a commandline scanner, and a tool for automatic updating via
Internet. The programs are based on a shared library distributed with
the Clam AntiVirus package, which you can use in your own software.
