ClamXav 2.8.9

Canimaan Software has issued ClamXav 2.8.9 with improved reliability of virus definition updates and the addition of a Quarantine toolbar button to the default toolbar. The virus scanner now checks proxy settings every time definition updates are checked, ensures that the Command-Delete keyboard shortcut deletes a selected file (rather than simply removing it from the infection list), improves reliability of scanning from the Finder Services/contextual menu item, and fixes a bug that prevented items added to the source list from getting properly selected. ($29.95 new, free update, 23.3 MB, release notes, 10.6.8+)
