The clamav project have announced that they will be publishing a

software, including the version in lenny.  If you have not yet migrated
to using the volatile packages, now would be a good time to do so. :-)

What does this mean exactly?  Will it now tell that everything is
not a virus, even for things that it used to be able to detect?

That doesn't seem particularly easy to determine from the announcements
provided by upstream, unless I'm looking in the wrong places; the
wording I used was very much based on their EOL announcement.

Run freshclam and you'll see.
