Dear clamassassin users,

    I've released clamassassin 1.2.0 now available for download at 

    Highlights of this release:

    - Now uses gnu autoconf and includes a simple Makefile.  This will 
allow most people to just do the standard './configure ; make install' 
and should vastly improve system compatibility.  This increases the size 
of the download a bit, but it's the best way to ensure that it just 
works.  (The last two releases should be ample proof of the deficiencies 
of a home-grown configure script.)

    - The 'X-Virus-Report: OK' is now completely fixed.  In addition, 
multiple infections will be reported unless clamdscan is used (clamdscan 
does not report multiple infections in streaming mode).

    - Virus signature file versions are now added to the headers to make 
it easier to debug why a particular file was not caught.

    Please take a look at the CHANGELOG for a complete inventory of changes.

    I've already got 4 feature requests for the next version, so if 
you've been shy about giving feedback, please let me know what 
'wish-list' items you'd like to see in future versions.

    Also as a reminder, clamassassin, including this release will not 
work with ClamAV 0.75 when using clamdscan as there is a critical bug in 
this version that makes clamdscan streaming mode break.  Please either 
stick with versions 0.74, or disable clamdscan if you use 0.75.
