New packages for clamav and libclamav version 0.81 will be at your
favorite mirror within the next few days.

Copied below is a summary of the changes in ClamAV version 0.81

The scan engine has been improved. The internal mail scanner now
supports multipart/partial messages, and support for decoding
non-standard mail files was greatly enhanced. clamav-milter by default
uses libclamav and scans emails itself without the use of clamd.
libclamav can now extract RFC2397 encoded data within HTML documents,
block zip archives with modified information in local header, and scan
HQX files. PE file structure rebuilding from compressed executables was
improved too.  An important note to clamdwatch users: please upgrade to
the latest version (it is under contrib/) as soon as possible. 

Enjoy, Alex
