I do understand not having update notifications if they are going to be 200+ times per day - that would be ridiculous however.
All but 2-3-4 of those 200+ per day are (or were -- see my next paragraph) streaming updates, for which we never did get popups. So I agree we wouldn't want those included.  But I too would like to see the notifications back for "regular" def updates.

It just occurred to me ... is it possible they've changed things so that now the only updates are the frequent streaming ones?  That would certainly explain why no more notifications.

(Edit, another afterthought) If that is the case then why retain the current numbering system for defs, which would no longer make sense?

If you check the defs sub-folder you will see that the regular VPS updates are occurring as the sub-folder numbering is the same as the VPS version.

See image - may only problem is not having received a single streaming update since this program version went live. So it would have been nice to know that at least I'm getting the VPS updates.

Is your streaming update issue with XP?

I rather doubt it given it has been working all the way through beta and RC builds.

Well at least we all know why there no update notification pop ups in v 2015.
I was also concerned about it,kept checking to see if it was updated.
It takes getting used to but I`m kind of liking the non bothering feel of it.You don`t even know it`s running and protecting,but it really is.
Apparently after just hovering over the orange icon in system tray and you see a green checkmark,everything is OK.
I`ve always used AVAST since it`s low on system resources used and just 2 Avast services running in task manager.
Keep up the great work Avast!

400 to 500 times a day ??? If it happens, you might get tired of it very quickly. :)

On this site it often seems that the conversation gets stalled at a certain point and won't be taken any further.

Isn't it clear that what people are concerned about here is that somehow Avast has ceased being connected with the mother ship and is slowly falling out of date and becoming ineffective?

Since in addition to the streaming updates coming in all the time, of course the versioned virus definitions updates  are quite clearly still happening, so would there be anything wrong with restoring the update notifications for those, just as they were before? 

That's what the people above who miss the notifications are missing I think.  That leads to the warm fuzzy feeling that their Avast installation is healthy and still on the job - i.e., the reason Avast had the announcement in the first place.

Here's another idea - how about a configurable update notification that only comes up and warns you verbally if the software HASN'T been able to contact home base for a specified period of time?

Not 400-500 times a day but as it was, just for the VPS Auto updates, not streaming updates.

I not only miss the popups but I'm tired of having to manually update everyday.  Set to automatic update.
