It's a bit unusual, but given the timeframe, I think they are preparing avast! 13.x, a major release, that's why there is no beta version yet.

Me, too, was under the impression betas were to be released as often as weekly.  Seems a hiatus but then again, I've never done a beta testing as the oem version will come in soon enough and with bugs in it anyway.

Do hope CyberCapture works in the latest version.

There is no more an Avast Year version.
There are monthly updates releasing features and improvements all over the year.
They are proceeded by (almost) weekly betas.

Cyber Capture, and the Firewall for paid users, should be the main focus for this release imo.

About CyberCapture,

I am curious how they are going to implement it.
There has been RejZoR's suggestion and Vlk's answer :

@Vlk I have one more idea. Currently, when CyberCapture locks the file into custody, you can opt to run it without waiting for verdict. You could add "Run in Sandbox" as an option for Pro, Internet Security and Premier editions since they already employ sandbox tech. This way users can run the suspicious stuff risk free in an isolated environment (if the app will work in it of course since not all do) even before they get definitive answer from CyberCapture servers. This way you add additional layer of security when users decide to run it anyway.

Thanks, that sounds like something that could be implemented very easily.

Vlk

And I have a suggestion elaborating on this :

Thinking about it ...

What about making the Sandbox available for Avast Free users as well, with the only possibility to run an unknown - and not-analysed executable in it ?
Just a suggestion :)

Greetz, Red.

Hi Be Secure :)

I think you misread/misunderstand my post.
Of course is CyberCapture for all users, Free and Paid.
But the Firewall is only for AIS and Premier users.
