Installed over previous version. There was no notice to reboot to finish installation.
Also I had to add English as second GUI language again.
Otherwise, everything looks good.

I didn't participate in beta testing of 2016 however have followed all posts from XP users.
Will Upgrade asap via GUI from last 2015 Release version and see what transpires given some of the issues expressed by fellow XP users. :)

Still getting browsing issues in both avast forums and uk.yahoo.com (pages fail to load), but why would I be surprised as I was getting this on RC3 and this is the same damn build number.

Smart scan, which used to take 2.5-3 minutes, had to be killed after 25 minutes, still 0%. (Win10 pro, x64). Something is not quite right.

Yes David thanks, I've also followed our friend Asyn's posts and others.
As soon as I'm at my xp I intend to upgrade and am interested to see if problems posted Re:xp users will show on my OS configuration or maybe the upgrade will be issue free. :P ;)

Stable version, not BETA channel. If I press update button in the settings, I get this screen in my AIS. I don't think it should offer me an avast Free update or upgrade to AIS  ;D

Why is the avast! Uninstall Utility gone from the webpage? And if it's still there, if I can't find it in 2 minutes, the webpage design clearly needs improvements...

Then what's the point of having good homepage if you still need to google the damn thing? Just saying...
