Can we expect a bit better detection rate with new unpackers with current signatures? No need for detailed percentage,just if this works as i think it does. Or we'll see better results only with latest signatures released after v4.6.663?

No, the unpackers and signatures are rather independent, so the improvement will happen immediatelly. Don't expect anything spectacular though - I did some quick and dirty (i.e. inaccurate) tests, and the improvement on recent malware samples was somewhere between 1 and 2%.

hope you devs remember the "Bad Pool Caller" topic.

I've been waiting for a newer version! After upgrading from .652 to this Beta version I don't encounter " Bad Pool Caller " blue screen anymore with Webshiled activated.

Thanks.

So from now I just can use automatic update and it will check for beta or even final realease? ???

That's right. If another beta version version is released before the final one, your avast will be updated with the new beta. When the final version is released, avast will update itself again to the final version

Cool! I love avast!
