for operation, but users of the previous version in Wheezy and Jessie may

Changes since 0.98 currently in Wheezy and Jessie include the addition of
YARA rules, Perl Compatible Regular Expressions, revamped on-access
scanning and support for decrypting some zip files.

This release changes the name of the shared library from libclamav6 to
libclamav7. As a result, some other packages have also been updated to use
the new library name - dansguardian, havp, c-icap-modules, python-clamav
