Scott Beck has released version 0.22 of Mail::ClamAV in the last few days.
Could I suggest that some of us with test facilities and with a little
technical experience try the various combinations of the older and newer
versions of ClamAV and Mail::ClamAV and verify which combinations work and
1. Old+old: We know that the combined earlier versions work.
2. New ClamAV + old Mail::ClamAV: It has been reported that the new
ClamAV (0.93) breaks with older Mail::ClamAV (0.20/0.21). Could
someone provide details of what this breakage is? Is there a quick
recipe to reproduce the problem that ClamAV 0.93 had introduced?
3. New + new: Julian's Clam+SA package would ultimately be new+new. Can
we verify that this fixes any previously verified breakage? Also that
it does not seem to introduce any new problems.
4. Old ClamAV + new Mail::ClamAV: There are inevitably sites which use
other sources (not Julian's package). Can we check what happens with
if someone were to upgrade their Mail::ClamAV module but leave the
main ClamAV software back on 0.92? (Probably not too important, but
it would be a nice data point to complete the set...)
Given Julian's sadly enforced absence from work, I'm sure he would
appreciate it if we can do this tabulation for him.
