New version of ClamXav v2.9 now released
We're delighted to announce that our new ClamXav release, v2.9, is live and ready to download. This new release is easier to use, more versatile and even more powerful in its fight against malware. It also fully supports macOS 10.12 Sierra.
What are the features of the new release?
There are almost 50 new features or updates with this latest version. If you want, you can read the full list, but for now we'll just tell you what we think are the key improvements with version 2.9.
There's a significant improvement to ClamXav's ability to remove infections from your Mac. At Canimaan Software Ltd, our aim is to keep your machines as safe as possible - so this is key to all of our developments.
We've made some changes to the appearance and menus to improve usability, aiming to make the system more intuitive. You'll also find a new colour coding feature, which makes it quick and easy to understand the severity of any infections on your Mac.
We've also made the software much easier to install as well as adding a bit of fine tuning to ensure it's working as quickly and reliably as possible.
Lastly, you can now quickly and easily quarantine or delete rogue emails and upload any suspicious files for us to inspect.
What will users see as the biggest difference with this update?
We've done a lot of work on usability - and we know users are finding this version much easier to navigate - but the improved ability to remove system infections and adware has to be the biggest impact. With version 2.9, ClamXav will automatically scan your whole system for malware when it's launched, enabling you to remove anything necessary. The software works quietly in the background, monitoring your Mac and checking new files as they arrive.
This update makes the software more powerful, and our users' computers are safer and more securely protected than ever, and that's what ClamXav is all about.
What's next for ClamXav
As ever we are continually improving the software. Our users' feedback is invaluable to the development, and little tweaks are constantly being made at ClamXav HQ to ensure the software is the most effective it can be. If you're interested in reading the full story of the software development, we've posted the version history on our site here.
