ClamAV 0.97 has been released!

Since the release of ClamAV 0.97rc, there have been several bug fixes:

* libclamav/vba_extract.c: fix error path double free (bb#2486)
 * libclamav/phishcheck.c: fix some missed safebrowsing URLs (bb #2514)
 * libclamav/matcher-bm.c: fix error message (bb#2513)
 * libclamav/matcher-hash.c: stop leaking virusnames (nopool mode)
So anyone using the RC, or a previous version of ClamAV should go ahead and take the opportunity to update to 0.97 now.

ClamAV 0.97 brings many improvements, including complete Windows support (all major components compile out-of-box under Visual Studio), support for signatures based on SHA1 and SHA256, better error detection, as well as speed and memory optimizations. The complete list of changes is available in the ChangeLog file. For upgrade notes and tips please see:
