Hi,

For those who want to have their ClamWin installation automatically updated (not just the virus datafiles, but also the software) ClamWinUpdate has been created. It's a set of batchfiles that will (if all's well) do just that. A new version (0.71) has been released on sourceforge for you to try. Feedback is welcome, please report your bugs to me.

http://clamwinupdate.sourceforge.net http://clamwinupdate.sourceforge.net

Don't forget to download the support tools as well (use the getsupporttools.bat if you want)

Some features:
- check for updates of the clamwin software and update it
- save the updates for use on multiple machines
- update from a saved source
- maintain it's own schedule (alpha)
- run commands before and after, like a system scan, including scanning with other virusscanning engines
- extensive logging and mailing the log to the admin (need external tools)
- gpg checking of downloads
- etc

Note: This is still beta software, the installer provided is even alpha, it may not work for you at all. there are known, but also unknown bugs. It's working on non-english / non-dutch windows may be impaired. non-default installation paths may also be a problem.

Good Luck
