        •  07 Feb 2003 11:28

          Release Notes: In this version, a new mechanism was introduced to improve performance by avoiding scanning a file multiple times in a very short period of time (e.g. Windows opens/closes a file several time when you double-click it). A new VFS module was added which uses the generic ICAP protocol to re-enable support for the Symantec AntiVirus Engine. A bug in the F-Prot module was fixed, so files containing white spaces or other special chars are now actually scanned. Support for mks antivirus was added. There were also the usual documentation updates to reflect recent changes.

          •  05 Dec 2002 15:22

            Release Notes: This release provides virus notification via Windows message service and a basic quarantine feature for infected files. Various smaller enhancements and bugfixes were also made.
