Claws Mail drops ClamAV plugin

Colin Leroy writes "Claws Mail, a lightweight and extensible mail user agent, recently released version 3.3.1. This bugfix release comes without its antivirus plugin based on ClamAV: Claws Mail's licence is GPL version 3 since September 2007, and ClamAV's libclamav is released under the GPLv2 strictly.
According to the Software Freedom Law Center, this incompatibility could only be resolved by relicensing either Claws Mail or libclamav, which was impossible to both teams."
