NEW: Beta version released - 2016.12.1.2263
« on: May 06, 2016, 02:29:04 PM »
Hi all,

new beta version is live: 2016.12.1.2263
In this beta we removed some non crucial features and focused on overall performance.

Changes:

+ New scan API for browsing
+ Removed NG (VHardware virtualization) - moved the technology to cloud, in next betas we will introduce new flow for handling unknown files
+ Removed Stats - Under redesign, will be returned later
+ Antispam module is now optional, not installed by default
+ Remote assistance removed for good
+ Fixed problems with Avast Account
+ Fixed issues with slow loading pages in SafeZone browser
+ Fixed creation of Rescue Disc

Known issues:

- Data Shredder UI doesn't work correctly
- SafeZone browser - Pay Mode does not work (will be fixed in next beta)
- Network threats (HNS) - affected devices are sometimes incorrectly displayed in Smart Scan results
- User interface might freeze after inserting a license

Download links as usual or just update your current beta.

Enjoy,
Martin

@MartinZ: Thanks for the positive changes. Is it possible to remove the Avast Sign in via Avast GUI for good. I want that to be removed, because it's unnecessary.  It is still having issues with it. Lukas.Hasik has the details about my reported problem. Bug number: BYU-790-31187. Thanks.

Thanks for the update Martin.

@Staticgy

For me Avast Account is somewhat useful for monitoring my parents' Avast and my mobile phone.
If you have only one PC and no mobile phone which have avast installed, then, it might be unnecessary...

Well, I'm just saying Avast Account is not unnecessary for some people like me.
I don't have any intention to deny there are some issues with it.

I agree, Avast Sign in via Avast GUI should be made as an optional installation rather than recommended.

No need to install it, or remove it if not needed. ;)

Nice to see a new beta released, might actually try this one shortly on my Windows 10 Desktop,  Now will I have to remove it again when Anniversary update comes out, despite i'm planning clean install near the release of that anyways, or sooner depending on If I get my Windows 10 Pro upgrade money.

Problem I was having was escalation of ram, I did send in a support case to Firestorm Secondlife viewer (3rd party)  but I do miss my avast, and Windows Defender scans so slow lately in Windows 10, so either I may do a system reset and reinstall the next final Avast,  or try the beta and see how it is, then decide if gonna do refresh sooner, or what.

Finally Avast! moves that sandbox analysis to cloud...atleast it doesn't have to be limited to certain users.

Not enough things removed, Clenup and Passwords  should go as well.

Also, can you please finally remove the idiotic requirement to register free version?
