New F-Prot

Its good to see that they've kept the personal version free for 'personal workstations' ( a bit of a grey area that since my personal workstation at home happens to also be a proxy server, file server, print server, web server for my home network!)

Their mail solution seems a bit pricy at $1920 (based on 500 users) for something that seems to be a script which hooks into procmail.

They also appear to be offering a .so file with the server version - I wonder if we'll see a perl wrapper API for that (like with SophosSavi)?
