Clam AntiVirus is an anti-virus toolkit for Unix. The main purpose of
this software is the integration with mail servers (attachment
scanning). The package provides a flexible and scalable
multi-threaded daemon in the clamav-daemon package, a command-line
scanner in the clamav package, and a tool for automatic updating via
the Internet in the clamav-freshclam package. The programs are based
on libclamav, which can be used by other software.
The package contains the needed headers and libraries for
developing software using the libclamav interface.
This library can be used to develop virus scanner applications.

clamav (0.99+dfsg-1ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium
Merge from Debian. Remaining changes (LP: #1540491) :
* Explicitly build using llvm-3.6.
* Ignore test results on armhf.
* debian/rules: Restore --with-llvm-linking=dynamic to avoid underlinkage 
causing FTBS
* d/p/llvm-don-t-use-system-libs.patch:
Do not use system libraries for linking : We are not linking the .a
files so we don't care about the libs llvm links against (like -ledit)
Dropping this patch will cause FTBS on Ubuntu with unresolvable -ledit
Dropped changes :
* debian/control : libsystemd-dev no longer renamed since it has been 
changed upstream.
* d/p/0005-libclamav-use-libmspack.patch : Now part of upstream release.
* d/p/0007-fix-ssize_t-size_t-off_t-printf-modifier.patch : Now part of
upstream release to the exception of the sigtool/sigtool.c cast
identified previously.
d/p/0008-hardcode-LLVM-linker-flag-because-llvm-config-return.patch :
Now part of upstream release.
* d/ Fix typo which causes a crash while
installing this package over any previous version (upgrading). Fixed
* Explicitly build using llvm-3.5. Now build using llvm-3.6.

clamav (0.99~rc2+dfsg-1) experimental; urgency=medium
[ Andreas Cadhalpun ]
* Import first upstream release candidate for 0.99.
* Drop patches included upstream:
- Avoid-emitting-incremental-progress-messages.patch
- bb-10731-Allow-to-specificy-a-group-for-the-socket.patch
- clamav-milter-add-additinal-SMFIF_-flags.patch
- remove-unnecessary-harmful-flags-from-libclamav.pc.patch
- hardcode-LLVM-linker-flag.patch
* Disable Large File Support because it is incompatible with fts.h, which
is required by the new upstream release.
* Drop patches needing LFS:
- libclamav-use-libmspack.patch
- fix-ssize_t-size_t-off_t-printf-modifier.patch
* Disable valgrind in the test suite again. It is too flaky.
* Print all new options in one build attempt.
* Preserve new OnAccessMountPath, OnAccessDisableDDD and OnAccessPrevention
options in clamd.conf.
* Rename libclamav6 to libclamav7 and update symbols file.
* Add -Wl,--as-needed to LDFLAGS to avoid useless dependencies.
* Remove unused lintian overrides.
* Update debian/copyright.

* fix a crash in clamdscan if file is passed via fd
* Import second upstream release candidate for 0.99.
