« on: May 19, 2016, 02:20:26 PM »
Hi all,

new beta version is live: 2016.12.1.2265
In this beta we focused on internal improvements and bugfixes.

Changes:

+ Bugfixes
+ Passwords extension installation status bug fixed

Known issues:

- User interface might freeze after inserting a license
- SafeZone Browser - Sometimes, Pay Mode fails to start. Restart of the browser should help
- SafeZone Browser - Dummy notifications and landing pages of Pay mode
- SecureLine - trying to connect while offline might cause service crash

Download links as usual or just update your current beta.

Enjoy,
Petr

Over 30 bugs fixed since last Beta. None of these bugs were mentioned here on the forum and were discovered during our internal testing. I will check recent posts once more and extend the list if necessary.

Any update on the bug reported September 2014 where the UI opens to the scan type after that scheduled scan completes (ie if Quick scan completes then Quick scan page opens)?

Any reason why the current beta testing has taken on the version number 2016.12.1.xxx seems a rather large jump from 11.2.xxxx a whole increment is generally considered a large jump/program update.

This current beta session (12.1.2263 to 12.1.2265) seems more removal of elements and bug fixes.

Vlk did mention big (under the hood more or less) changes happening mid year (before the usual major update cycle in autumn. Maybe this is it, reflecting in larger major version number.

Saying "bug-fixes" without any details is not what people want to read.

e.g. bugs can be :
- Text is shown in blue while it should be in green
- Login names and passwords are stored in plain text while they should be stored encrypted

Both are bugs and should be fixed.

Installed this version and good improvements are coming for stable users.
You are ironing the codes and the software. I have some suggestion for the next possible beta.

- Please remove the free version registration, you even do not control the mails. I wrote blala@live.com and accepted. This registration make users think "Should I have buy this?" .. if it is a marketing feature then tell me I can accept this. You have to pay your bills. I respect.

- Please remove nags from main interface. I installed Windows Avast but it always asks me "Install Avast to your phone".. I do not want to see this. You already show this with popups. Why it is still on main interface. I want clean interface.

- Please enable PUP detections by default. It is very importatn situation!

- Please disable HTTPS scanning by default. Avast is behaving like "man in the middle", it is a common malicious activity of malwares. Do not do that!

- While installing Avast, please ask o users "Do you want to participate in data sharing program/Avast community?".. Users should select this while installing software.

- Please add more information into hardened mode popups. User should know "why this file blocked?" "Why Avast suspecting on this file" .. if you did not give this verdict, believe me all user will click on "Exclude" to run their god damn program.

- This one is feature request, I have some samples on my desktop in folder "malware".. I scanned it with context.. Avast should check the files with cloud. If Avast cloud doesn't have some of these files. It should ask the user after scan "Do you want the send these unknown files to Avast for further analyze?" Yes - No option... You can collect many sample& cloud data like that. Norton Security does this thing if I am not wrong. It is very good idea.

These are very strict reviews of me. If you will do these then you will be greater software.
Thanks for listening me.

Keep up the good work,
yigido

This feature is already in avast and its automatic.

Aaaahhhhh, negative!  I have this collection of ancient 32-bit legacy software which always shows up on PUP scans, so I've had to disable PUP scanning to avoid all the FPs.

Sme folks want PUP scanning, by all means.  But others, no.
