ClamWin: No definitions updates coming through any more

For about a week now, whenever I try to update the clamwin definitions nothing is being updated. After a blank reinstall of ClamwinPortable I'm getting the message that the database mirrors are probably all out, and not even the main database is being downloaded. The program is constantly telling me that I should update my virus definitions. Is there something wrong at ClamAV's end?. There were rumours last week that the main database file was going to be renewed. Is this what causes all this?

ClamWin forum

On the forum link I found the following comment:

"
Clam AV has not updated the virus signature database for several days now due to problems migrating the signature interface.

They were going to migrate to a new signature interface and also integrate the daily database signatures into the main database signatures to reduce the size of the daily database. See http://blog.clamav.net/ for the latest information about this.
"
So apparently everything is under control...
Tks for the links!
