can you explain what is the difference between version 0.98.1 and version 0.97.8 ?
I assume you currently have 0.97.8, I guessed Ubuntu from the logo in your post, turns out you have Mint.. but I do not know which version.

if you want to install the latest and greatest , you could look for a third party repo.. ( which has inherent security risks )
or look at installing 'daily snapshots' of mint, stability and security risks..


You can maintain them yourself, by compiling from source

TB0ne offers some advice there.

If the repositories do not have the version you are looking for It looks as though the only option you have is to install from the source via the Tarball file you downloaded (as TBOne has so kindly outlined how to do). Best wishes.

From the beginning, do this:

Code:
tar -xf clamav-0.98.1.tar.gz -C /tmp
cd /tmp/clamav*1
./configure
make
sudo make install
Done.

But I still think you should listen to Firerat, because he's trying to help you do this 'properly'.

Looking for latest and greatest may be feasible in some cases, this is not one of them. You can use older clamav and it will work fine, just update the database to latest.

For Clam you do NOT need the "latest and greatest"
it moves VERY SLOW
now you DO need the database
From " freshclam"
that needs to be keep up to date

use your package manager to install ClanmAV

PS
in a manual install YOU HAVE TO MANUALLY
Edit two files BEFORE you can use the program

you will get an error when you try to run "clamscan"
the fix is in the error

the second error you WILL!!!! get is about the database being "out of date"
run "freshclam"
you WILL ALSO GET AN ERROR
the fix is in the error message

Mint 13 (LTS) is supported until 2017
This doesn't mean it has the latest software, only the latest security updates


Mint 16 , support ends July 2014
The software is most likely the latest (or near the latest)
Come July 2014, you install the next version ( mint 17 )

if you really feel you need the latest versions, install the latest Mint version!

To elaborate on Firerat's post, you are dealing with a development cycle and a project's stability.

So, even though ClamAv x.xx is the bleeding edge, newest stable release, most project's will not incorporate it immediately, sometimes waiting for the bugs to show up and be fixed, and sometimes waiting for the software to prove that it is actually stable enough to meet the project's definition of stable. And, the maintainers at your Linux Distro might have to run tests of their own, re-package it, test it, and so on.

So no, if version X of a package came out today, you probably won't see it on "Your Linux Distro/Stable" immediately.

If you want a project that stays on the bleeding edge of version numbers (as if it matters) then check out Arch.

Also debian sid ( aka unstable )
and if you really want trouble, Debian experimental

And if you are happy with putting time and effort in, "Linux from Scratch"

Linux from scratch isn't as up to date, core-wise, as most think. It's really meant to show you how to build a full linux system, and to do that they use "older", well working versions.

Now,.. if you do want to get really, really experimental, you can roll your own linux.

https://github.com/boardstretcher/tw...r/installer.sh
disclaimer: its been 5 months since i used it, don't know if it still works, easily fixable and readable though
disclaimer2: i used this for making embedded linux, so its really, really stripped down

It's a mini-linux image builder. It will give you a bootable image, that has bash CLI and nothing more. From there, you have to build everything that you want. So you can use ANY version that you desire.
