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!).

Due to the availability of working Windows binaries from the official ClamAV project webpage (see http://www.clamav.net/downloads#otherversions), some of them even represented as "portable" (untested!), I move for changing the ClamWin entry, which hasn't been updated in a long time, to ClamAV.

Any nay-sayers?

I think ClamAV is command line only in its Windows builds, unless it's changed.

EDIT: I just checked and it's command line only.

I see. Not that ClamWin doesn't resort to running commands in the CLI console, but in respect to site rules (as well as my own personal preference) GUI programs have preference here at TPFC. Motion withdrawn, then. :|

Do you happen to know why the ClamWin version is lagging behind?
