« on: July 13, 2015, 03:30:03 PM »
Hi all,

New version AVAST 2015 R3 (build number 2015.10.3.2223) has been released:

New features and improvements in Avast 2015 R3:
  • Grimefighter is now redone and called Cleanup.
            - runs without need of reboot
            - much faster
            - runs on more devices (better compatibility)
  • Improved Windows 10 compatibility
  • Ability to check compatibility issues with other antivirus software
  • Host-based intrusion prevention system (HIPS): an installed software package which monitors a single host for suspicious activity by analyzing events occurring within that host
  • StreamFilter with HTTPS scanning  is now available also for Windows XP/Vista
  • NG is not using Volume Shadow Copy Service anymore


How to install:

Hi,

it was much nicer, when there was a final release with a different version number as in the past years (even if nothing has changed from RC to RTM). Maybe this should be considered again for future releases.

I read where the rest of the versions such as Pro went final today. I thought that AIS would as well. Guess not.

Hi,

<snip>

I couldn't agree more an RC build number shouldn't suddenly become the the Release version number - even if there have been no changes (in what was a short R3 RC2) the build number should have an incremental increase (even if artificial) as I feel it avoids confusion.

For those involved in the Beta testing, including RC builds still have 2015 BETA emblazoned on the UI.

If there are many new/updates things due soon why the rush to avast 2015 R3 ???

"Over the top" custom installation. Everything looks good except I lost all restore points, AGAIN !

Avast! should give brief description of the Host-based intrusion prevention system (HIPS).
I agree.
