where did you look for this clamav rpm ? both rpmforge.net and 
centos.karan.org have clamav which are updated soon after upstream release.

I should point out that dag's pkgs at rpmforge.net are packages slightly 
differently from the ones at centos.karan.org - so whichever repo you 
decide to use, stick with that one for clamav ( ref: yum's includepkg 
etc for that .repo file )
