Dear ClamAV users,

version 0.75 is available for download at the usual location.
This release fixes detection of e-mails generated by Worm.Mydoom.I.
Please upgrade your systems.

On non-production systems you can try the latest cvs snapshot.
The new engine not only speeds up the scanning process but also limits
memory usage by about 8 MB ! It's able to scan new formats, including
CAB, CHM, UPX, HTML (normalisation), PowerPoint macros and can detect
annoying e-mails with empty attachments generated by new Bagle variants.

Important notice for people using ClamAV 0.60:

Our logs show that there is still a small percentage of ClamAV 0.60
installations updating their database. ClamAV 0.60 was released on
July 29th, 2003 and it was the last release to use the old database
format. Starting from version 0.65, released on November 12nd, ClamAV
uses a new database format, which is compressed and digitally signed.
We have been distributing the database in both formats till now, but
we plan to drop support for ClamAV 0.60 on September 1st.

We encourage _all_ users to upgrade to the latest release available.
People running an old version of ClamAV are missing many viruses and=20
may experience stability problems.
