ClamXav v2.10

Here at ClamXav HQ we are always improving and developing our Mac antivirus software. So we're pleased to announce that the latest version, ClamXav 2.10, is now available. We've made tweaks to the usability and performance of the software, to keep your Mac safe and protected.

What's new with this latest version?

Firstly, the latest version has improved support for the newest operating system from Apple (macOS 10.12 Sierra). We've also fixed some of the intermittent errors that our users have reported to us. If you've been using ClamXav alongside DiskWarrior, and had found a slight incompatibly - you'll be pleased to know that it's now fixed. We've also made some improvements to your usability of the software - all based on your feedback and comments - so thanks again to our users for reporting issues as they arise.

If you're interested in the finer detail of the improvements to v2.10, we've posted the whole technical list of updates for you.

Why is this new version number 2.10?

The eagle eyed among you will notice that the last version we released was v2.9. So you might ask why our latest release isn't version 3. Well, if you're not a software techie you might not realise that despite their appearance, software numbers aren't actually decimals. In fact they're just a series of numbers or letters. So version 3 doesn't automatically follow version 2.9. Think about the current version of your Mac operating software - that's version 10.12! So that's why the new version is 2.10.

What's next?

As you may have realised, improvement is at the heart of our business here at Canimaan Software. Our aim is to keep your Mac safe from viruses, as well as being easy and efficient to use. We use the files you submit to us and the viruses we detect to continually improve the software - so it's never long until the next update is ready to download. But you'll have to wait to see what version number comes next…

If you aren't using our powerful and trusted antivirus software yet, you can find out more and download a 30-day free trial from the downloads page - we don't even ask for payment/card details up-front!
