V2016 Beta 4 (2016.11.1.2237)
« on: October 23, 2015, 04:48:29 PM »
Hi all,

I am glad to announce the release of new beta V2016: AVAST 2016 B4 (build number 2016.11.1.2237).

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


Avast Passwords apps for mobile phones:
1.  iOS: http://goo.gl/forms/4RVD4RAE5L
2.  Android: still tuning....

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.

Changes from V2016 Beta 3:
- Home network security is now fully completed and works also in Smart Scan
- Fixed major bugs in Passwords
- Fixed crashes in SafeZone tabs
- NG is not installed automatically in Free, but can be installed via Custom installation
- Fixed minor problems on uninstall screen
- Fixed problem with non working Firewall afer installation via online installer
- Animated icons in menu + new background on main page
- Trillions of minor bug fixes and improvements

Known issues:
- Web Reputation, Safe Price features are not functional in SafeZone browser
- It is impossible to deactivate the Pay Mode for sites which are automatically switched in to this mode
- After program update the Mozilla reports the Online Security plugin as unsigned. Clean installation works fine.

Changes from V2015:

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.)

   - 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

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

I tried to update through the UI but it failed. I then downloaded the online install tool. It seemed to work but my firewall was turned off and I could not turn it on. I had to reboot. The install of Beta 3, gave me a pop up to re boot. This Beta did not. Running Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit RTM.

Still can't even install avast! Online Security add-on for Firefox 42 Beta 8 64bit. Tried everything and I just can't install it. Not even manually from avast! folder. Hm.

Have broken detection messages been fixed? Can't find any link long enough to corrupt it at the moment...

Password manager crash and when open the statistics window and after that the logged in account the statistics open again.

Something changed in https scanning because some image not loading facebook and other sites.
