This update for clamav brings the 0.99.0 stable release and fixes the

* Processing of yara rules(some limitations- see signatures.pdf).
* Support in clamav logical signatures for many of the features added
for YARA, such as Perl Compatible Regular Expressions, alternate
strings, and YARA string attributes. See signatures.pdf for full
* New and improved on-access scanning for linux. see the recent blog
post and clamdoc.pdf for details on the new on-access capabilities.

files with unknown file types.

Code supplied by Bill Parker.
* Support for lzma decompression within adobe flash files.
* Support for mso attachments within microsoft office 2003 xml files.
* A new sigtool option(--ascii-normalize) allowing signature authors to
more easily generate normalized versions of ascii files.
* Windows installation directories changed from \program
files\sourcefire\ ClamAV to \Program Files\ClamAV or \Program

- Make clamd and clamav-milter services depend on freshclam as they need it

- Don't need sendmail for building clamav-milter anymore, sendmail-devel
is enough (boo#915414).

- Boo#914505: config file merging and temp file creation got moved to %pre
by mistake. Put them back to %post.
- Restore the updateclamconf script (boo#908731).
