BRAND NEW VERSION: 12.1.2272
« on: June 21, 2016, 03:29:07 PM »
Hi all,

I am happy to announce new version of AVAST Antivirus (build number 12.1.2272), called NITRO Update.
It's for these products: Free Antivirus, Pro Antivirus, Internet Security and Premier.
This update is focused on improving the performance and detection capabilities. We also stopped using the year in product name, as we will be releasing new versions in monthly cycles from now.
We also removed some features that might have been causing problems or not being used by many users in order to make Avast faster and lighter.

What's new:

+ Lower system impact - faster boot time, less space taken on disk

+ CyberCapture - better detection of unknown and unique files via our cloud technology

+ Regular monthly program updates - automatic and silent, configurable via Settings

+ Improved detection of router vulnerabilities

+ New Bank mode in SafeZone browser

+ Faster SecureLine connection

+ Antispam is now as opt-in component

- Removed hardware virtualization (NG) - replaced with CyberCapture,that has much lower impact on system resources

- Removed Remote assistance - not used enough and not a core functionality

How to install:

1. Update from existing Avast version via Settings -> Update -> Update program

2. Or you can download and install from here:

We hope you enjoy the new version!

+ Antispam is now as opt-in component

I can think of many other components that should be made opt in rather than Antispam which is important for protection.

Cleanup and Safeprice for sure.

Passwords is debateable.

I'm not sure about monthly release cycles, bit too much like Win10 and to some extent Ubuntu non LTS, a moving target.
Maybe there should be a LTS release (yearly or 6 monthly) where stability is key and  for those more adventurous, new features/tweaks in the monthly updates. The saving grace currently is that you are not forced into it and can turn the monthly update off (according to the changelog).

I do fully support de-bloating avast, focusing on performance and detection though.
