In my opinion both are good solutions. Only one suggestion: in case you decide to keep one post for n betas up to the RC, I think it's better if the post title reports the current release number .2xxx that is changed everytime a new beta is added

Personally I feel it should be a new topic for each new beta release.

Simply changing the beta topic, doesn't change the previous posts Title only subsequent posts Title. Also any previous issues in a beta would still be in the now current beta version. I think this could lead to confusion, not to mention the topic posts could soon get very big, making it hard to navigate and people aren't really going to read the whole topic to catch up to where we are..

I think ideal would be read-only sticky with the on-going changelog (updated with new ones)

and then new thread per each new beta

Not a bad idea : It would be easier to keep track on what has been changed/fixed earlier.

Is the new firewall driver also used for anything else (Web Shield etc) or just for actual firewall?

New driver is part of firewall only. It is not related to webshield etc.

Why did avast! beta installer offer "avast Virtual Machines" on my crappy laptop but didn't on my powerhouse PC with Core i7 5820K and 32GB RAM?

Same thing I've noticed with stable builds. I just don't have avast! VM, the NG version of DeepScreen. And I have all virtualization enabled in BIOS for my CPU. Virtualization and that VT-x or whatever it is.
