It, unfortunately, is not.  If we did, then users who have installed from source will see the outdated warning.  The warning is a dumb string-compare, and doesn't actually compare the integer values in the version string.

Would it be possible to turn off the outdated warning until that happens?

Because of the libclamav header issue I disclosed last week, most
package managers are holding off on packaging 0.101.0. Some projects
that rely on ClamAV will be unable to build with the new libclamav
version until ClamAV 0.101.1 is published (and until they update to use
the API changes).

We will have 0.101.1 out in early January.  Sorry about the delay.
Don't panic!
