I can't compare and contrast amavisd-new and amavis-ng, unfortunately.
However, amavisd-new has some excellent features that the amavisd people
are pondering merging into amavisd (or so their postings on amavis-user
would lead me to think). I haven't had a single problem with
amavisd-new. My mail server processes about 12k messages a day, all of
which are scanned with amavisd-new and Eset NOD32 (client/server mode).

Yes. It's a pain. The amavis-ng upstream would do well to ensure
that he takes from amavisd-new any and all improvements to be found
