[=] Updated the Anti-virus settings ExcludePUA and IncludePUA to be textareas instead of select lists to allow for more granular options.
[=] Updated the Anti-virus setting SelfCheck default from 600 to 3600 to improve performance and optimize how often anti-virus signatures get reloaded.
[=] Updated the extension custom button location to display in the left navigation (in both service provider and power user views).
[=] Updated the geolocation settings page to not throw an error when first entering the MaxMind license key because new keys can take about 30 minutes before they are recognized.
[=] Removed deprecated options from the anti-virus settings pages and updated the online documentation.
[=] Removed customer information from the domains select list to make extra space when scanning multiple domains.
