V2016 Beta 2 is HERE! (2016.11.1.2235)
« on: October 09, 2015, 12:10:00 PM »
Hi all,

I am excited to announce the release of beta 2 V2016: AVAST 2016 B2 (build number 2016.11.1.2235).

Feel free to report them back via forum or new feedback form in the program.
We also welcome any feedback on the new features and changes, of course.


Changes:

NEW: Passwords - Avast can now manage your passwords and generate strong passwords for you. Just one password to remember.
 - checks your passwords security
 - stores your passwords securely
 - includes browser extensions for easier logging in and form filling
 - generates strong passwords

NEW: SafeZone browser - Replaced the SafeZone for safer shopping and banking

   - Pay Mode: runs automatically on banking sites (This isolates the session and protects it from possible keyloggers or other malicious software secretly lurking on your computer. With Pay Mode you can perform all your financial transactions in peace, without fear of your password or other personal details being stolen. Pay Mode can be also turned on manually directly via browser UI.)

   - HTTPS scanning while preserving the original certificate

   - Optionally, some extensions such as Ad Blocker and Video Downloader (potentially useful as SafeZone doesn't support add-ons for security reasons).


NEW: User interface
- More space for content, easy control

NEW: Feedback possible directly from program
- report bugs, feature requests and other suggestions easier

IMPROVED: Home network security
now detects more router vulnerabilites and shows more details

IMPROVED: Installation - it should be now faster and less obtrusive.

+ Many other minor tweaks and fixed

How to install:

1. If you have installed some beta version before you can update it to this latest version via Settings->Update->Program.

2. Or you can download and install from here:

http://files.avast.com/beta9x/avast_free_antivirus_setup_online.exe

http://files.avast.com/beta9x/avast_pro_antivirus_setup_online.exe

http://files.avast.com/beta9x/avast_internet_security_setup_online.exe

http://files.avast.com/beta9x/avast_premier_antivirus_setup_online.exe


How to provide feedback
Please for specific issues set a new topic in the Beta section (https://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=15.0). For general open discussion feel free to use this thread.

Or use the feedback form in the AV program or in the SafeZone browser.

Fixed from beta 1:
- Missing content for Network issues in Smart Scan
- Unable to log in to Avast Account through Cleanup
- Browser extension Avast Online Security is not being installed in Firefox
- “Shielded Window” mode in SafeZone browser doesn't work yet.


Known issues:
- Passwords extension in IE doesn't work correctly
- Loosing the first device that starts using Passwords might cause blocking of Avast Account (only if synchronization is enabled, by default turned off)
- Web Reputation, Do-Not-Track and Safe Price features are not functional in SafeZone browser
- Ad blocker sometimes needs restart of the SafeZone browser to start working (occurs only once)
- Avast Passwords doesn;t work in SafeZone browser yet
- It is impossible to deactivate the Pay Mode for sites which are automatically switched in to this mode

Avast cleaner:
http://files.avast.com/beta9x/avastclear.exe

It should be possible to install this version on top of your existing avast! installation (all settings should be preserved).

To report BSODs, crashes or any other none trivial problems please use new SupportPackage generating tool.
- http://utils.support.tools.avast.com/tools/support/utils/avastsupport.exe

Instructions how to use it can be easily found:
- https://www.avast.com/en-us/faq.php?article=AVKB33#artTitle



We are looking forward for your feedback!

Thank you
Avast team

Great problems of network scanning are solved even if does not detect the correct IP address of your computer as you can see in the attachment

Update: the ip abnormal was detected that the Bluetooth network for the rest it's all good, of course, to the problem of authentication of account on Avast the problem still remains

Cool, NG is now working with Windows 10 64bit :D

Any idea why avast! Online Security extension doesn't work at all? I'm using Firefox 42 Beta 5 64bit. It's not even listed in Firefox...

Thanks for the update. So far working fine. :)

Edit: When I click "Go to router settings" in Home Network Security scan result, it opens "http://undefined" instead of router IP.

Why is there only "Rescan", but no "Done" or "Return to Home screen"?
