Am I missing something? ClamWin Portable 0.98.7 was released back in May 17 and our database entry is up to date.

Upstream ClamWin v0.99.4 released, dated 2018-03-15 (changelog is at http://www.clamwin.com/content/view/249/1/).

Downloads for this release are at https://sourceforge.net/projects/clamwi ... in/0.99.4/.

FYI, I'll copy here a comment I posted a while ago in the database entry:
Please note that, for updating purposes, you needn't download the full 100MB+ ClamWin package.

Just go to http://sourceforge.net/projects/clamwin/files/clamwin/, find the latest version folder and download the 'clamwin-0.9x.x-setup-nodb.exe', which is only about 8MB -- after (Uni)extracting, you'll find all the files you need for updating in the '{app}\bin' folder...
Please note that in my experience the 'clamwin-update-0.9x.x-0.9x.x.exe' file also present therein is nothing more than an online updater for the installed version of ClamWin.

Upstream ClamAV v100.1 released (changelog at blog.clamav.net /2018/07/clamav-01001-has-been-released.html).

The upstream official ClamAV webpage has (allegedly portable) 32 and 64-bit Windows builds available for download at http://www.clamav.net/downloads#otherversions (untested!).
