Well no announcement in the Beta sub-forum that I have seen.

With the program update frequency, reportedly one a month, I would have expected a permanent beta testing state working on the next months update.

Still waiting on Edge Extension for Avast Password support, maybe that will come in Septembers build, as well as other goodies, but so far no new beta, so just waits patiently lol,  (On desktop I only use Edge Browser or Internet Explorer)

I would expect new beta version to release next week. There's probably some bigger features they're working on (or it's #TooHotToCode weather).

Could be they a holding things down till the take-over of AVG is a fact.
I can imagine there is a lot to test when they implement parts of AVG into avast.

If the acquisition of AVG is what holding them down, I would be worried.
There are more than enough bugs/issues that need to be fixed.

If it is done the same way as when AVG  acquired norman safeground in 2014 then this is something that take time
AVG / Norman is still a ongoing process

Hi guys,

yes there is some delay in beta, we plan next one to the beginning of October.  Thank you for your patience. Some major bugs are fixed immediately via microupdate without the beta testing.

Now that Be Secure mentions Cyber Capture, and I am thinking back about what Vlk told us, this could very well be the reason for the delay.
