End of life (EOL) policy change
ClamAV is making a minor change to our EOL 

The original EOL policy stated that Long Term Support (LTS) versions will lose 
access to signature updates on the same date that we end support for additional 
patch versions.

We are changing the policy to allow signature updates for at least one year 
after we stop supporting the release with patch versions.

0.103 support extension
We are also announcing a one-year extension of support for ClamAV 0.103 LTS.

We decided to extend the life of the 0.103 LTS release because of the 
significant changes to the build system in 0.104 and the change in 0.105 
requiring the Rust programming language toolchain to compile ClamAV.

The one-year support extension does not apply to future LTS releases.

ClamAV 0.103.0 was initially released on Sept. 14, 2020. With the additional 
year of support, and considering the change in the EOL Policy that allows one 
additional year of access for signature updates, this means that EOL dates for 
ClamAV 0.103 LTS are as follows:

  *   Expected End of Life (EOL): Sept. 14, 2024
  *   Patch versions continue until: Sept. 14, 2024
  *   Internal signature load testing until: Sept. 14, 2024
  *   Database downloads allowed until: Sept. 14, 2025

0.105 EOL
Finally, we would like to remind everyone that as per the EOL Policy, the 
release of ClamAV 1.1 heralds the end of patch versions supporting ClamAV 
0.105. There will no more patch versions for ClamAV 0.105.

ClamAV 0.105 will continue to have access to signature updates for an 
additional four months after the 1.1 release, which was on May 1, 2023. This 
means that we may block 0.105 from further updates after Sept. 1, 2023.
