ClamAV as one of the leading open-source anti-virus / anti-malware toolkits for Linux / Windows / BSDs has finally reached the version 1.0 milestone.

This GPLv2 anti-virus/anti-malware solution developed by Cisco and the open-source community saw its first release originally in 2002. Now two decades later, ClamAV 1.0 is available and is christened as a long-term support (LTS) release.

With ClamAV 1.0.0 LTS this free software anti-virus solution now has overhauled the all-match feature, a new callback in the public API for inspecting file contents during a scan at each layer of archive extraction, other new APIs, support for decrypting read-only OLE2-based XLS files, a wide variety of other improvements, and also numerous bug fixes.
