Title: Any idea what's planned for 5.1
Post by: BoerenkoolMet WorstEnJus on June 25, 2010, 03:56:21 PM
So far I know of 64 bit Boot scan, 64 bit Behaviour Shield and more sensors for Behaviour shield(got that one from softpedia interview.) Is anything else planned for 5.1 and is there an estimate for when beta will be released?

Have been asked a million times, so you should find some info using the forum search.....

There is also a wishlist

Yes, but if you search "5.1" it lists all 5's and 1's found in a massive amount of posts. Trying to combine it with different search terms limits the results, but I still can't find the answer.
I also checked the wishlist but it's not stated in the opening and first posts, there are lots of pages filled with user wishes, I looked through some pages, but could find statements about 5.1

Might I suggest that when you do this that you also consider closing the old Wishlist topic now at 117 pages. Create a new Wishlist topic post 5.x Feature suggestions, as no one is going to read through 117 pages going back many years.

Yes, and before 5.2 is released, you'll see questions about 5.3 and 5.4 and just after the 5.2 release the first 6.0 question will be asked ;D
People are no longer content with the present, always looking towards the future ::)

Looking forward to this. I hope you'll dedicate even more work time to heuristics (the ones that maxx is already working on) and possibly utilizing Behavior Shield even on 64bit systems. But since i know you're heavily limited here by the Win kernel, i'm hoping for more of the stuff maxx is cooking in your lab that can work on both 32bit and 64bit without any differences.

+1 As I'm moving over to 64bit for Windows 7 Pro soon this year ;)
