The long overdue 2.2.4 release is out with a number of ASL Web updates by popular demand. Previous versions did not give you the ability to pause the Event viewer, and in 2.2.4 you will now see a pause button "||" in the top right of the window title bar now..... aaaaand if you're using firefox the timer will honor the much venerated "<blink>" tag. For those of you using IE, I have bad news for you... not only will you not see this fabulous blinking motion in action you'll also be warned of your vulnerable browser if you're running IE 6. In other news Update buttons are now in place on the Signature's and Vulnerabilty windows, allowing you to update or fix the system directly from the GUI.
Our release schedule policy has changed, public releases for ASL will only be released on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Test builds from [asl-2.0-testing] are uneffected by this policy, this only applies to general availablity releases.
The next release 2.2.5 will be focused on expanding the clamav module to handle integration with other support components, this includes the existing qmail-scanner package and the brand new kernel clamav module called dazuko. You will note that dazuko is available with the latest 126.96.36.199 kernel now. This allows us to expand clamav support to real detection of malware as it is written to the file system. It could potentially replace both the FTP and Web upload scanners, as well as cutting out the need for retroactive file system scanning. All in all a big performance increase over what has been done in the past.
