Hi guys,

finally, we managed to make the avast engine Intel platform independent!

As a beginning, here's a beta version of avast! for

1. Sun Solaris (Sparc platform)
2. Linux (PowerPC/G5).

More platforms are coming soon (Mac OS X Server, maybe also IBM AIX and AS/400 (?) and generally any platform you guys are using - please tell us...! :))

It was quite a struggle (as *vast* parts of avast are in fact written in Intel x86 assembly language - i.e. absolutely non-portable) but I hope the result was worth the effort.

We expect to officially release the product in Q1 2006.

Thanks !
