The cygwin clamav packages (Clam AntiVirus - GPL anti-virus toolkit) has
been updated to 0.90.1-1. A minor number but a major dll change.
We switched now to libclamav2.
devel users: The API changed a lot with 0.90

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.

See http://freshmeat.net/projects/clamav/

The clamav package comes in three parts:

clamav:      the executables and binaries
libclamav2:  the shared library since 0.90.1
libclamav-devel: development resources (headers, static- and import

The experimental phishing code from the Google Summer of Code program is

                 from main.cvd/daily.cvd
   --no-phishing-scan-urls means to disable the new phishing code
