NEW Version: Avast Antivirus 2015 R2 (2015.10.2.2214)
« on: March 02, 2015, 10:34:53 PM »
Hi Avast fans,

I'm glad to announce a new version of Avast Antivirus for Windows (Free, Pro, Internet Security, Premier).
Version number: 2015.10.2.2214

What's new:

- Improved Windows 10 Compatibility

- Browser Cleanup integrated to Avast UI and added to Smart Scan

- WebShield improvements for faster browsing and fixed issues with expired certificates

- Avast NG virtualization – performance and stability fixes

- AccessAnywhere feature is removed and replaced with remote connection feature available through Account screen in all editions(not limited to Premier)

- New design of Chrome plugin

- Better license activation during setup

It's recommended to use the in-product update (Settings->Update->Program), if you have Avast already installed.

Enjoy this version, it's much better than the previous ;-)

Installed this update, 2015.10.2.2214, within UI (updated from 10.0.2208) but problem now is Avast keeps saying an update is available, and shows 2015.10.0.2214 as newer version. Difference is 10.2 vs 10.0.

Things I have tried:
1) rebooting five times
2) repair
3) clicking Update, but says I already have latest version

Remove include removal with the removal tool. Reboot and do a clean install. :)

Currently my installed version of avast free doesn't say a newer version of Avast is available. Perhaps it will show up later on.

Thanks MartinZ for another great release of Avast  :). I will update my avast to this version in a couple of days, because I ran out of broadband internet bandwidth  :). I will report back after I upgrade to this release.

Why is the free link only 5 megabytes?

It still doesn't look like the all of the update servers have been updated (or are ultra busy) as my win7 netbook, which hasn't been used for beta builds reported 2015.10.0.2208 was up to date.

A further manual check appears to be downloading, however it is very slow and may even be stalled, has sat at the same progress point for over 5 minutes.

On my XP Pro system which has been used in the beta and RC builds has just thrown up a popup program update available. Update has completed on that (but the other system is still stalled) and I'm about to reboot.

I suspect that this is an on-line stub installer not the full setup file.

They put the wrong number on the in program update so it isn't going to match up until they fix it

See my post above... you're knocking yourself out for nothing... they have to fix the version being broadcast
