ClamXav 2.9

Canimaan Software has issued ClamXav 2.9 with new features and improvements to the virus scanner. The update significantly improves on ClamXav’s capability to remove installed system infections and provides a new engine install/uninstall mechanism that retains any user-defined local/private mirrors and proxy settings. The release also improves disk image scanning, adds a color-coded infection list that helps identify the severity of an infection, enables you to cancel a definitions update in progress, fixes a bug that prevented the Dock icon progress bar from displaying correctly, and improves ClamXav Sentry when running under multiple users. Because of the numerous changes to ClamXav 2.9, the trial period has been reset, enabling those with expired trial versions to install it again and use ClamXav for 30 days. ($29.95 new, free update, 18.1 MB, release notes, 10.6.8+)
