What's New in This Release:
· Aegis 2.0 is a ground-up rewrite of the Aegis Virus Scanner. It was developed as a modular and flexible system that can support multiple backends for monitoring and scanning. Even the user interface is decoupled so that it would not be hard to write an interface for another desktop such as KDE.
· The old Aegis was a simple "on-demand" scanner - you ran the application, chose a directory, and the program scanned it for you. Aegis 2.0 is a background scanner - it resides in your desktop's notification area, and watches for new or modified files in your home directory. When it finds an infected file, it shows a dialog, allowing you to delete or quarantine the file.
