So far Feedback is positive here, only got it installed currently on my 3rd PC, Windows 7 SP1 32bit Desktop,  Liking the new interface, liking the modules, Modules installed File Shield, Mail Shield, Webshield, Wifi Inspector and Software Defender

No issues to speak of as well, Interface a little slow to open on that system, but might be the system itself, If it's safe enough to test on most used machine, might add it to this one in a day or two, Windows 10 Pro 64bit 1607 14393.351.

Currently on Acer Aspire Revo R1600 1.60ghz Intel Atom Single Core Processor, 1.5gb of ram, Intel Ion LE Desktop graphics and 160gb hard drive, 5400RPM

Still testing though, might see if I can get a small game into that system to test silent gaming mode, and if not just wait til I decide to test it on most used system possibly

Same language bug that I've reported ages ago is still NOT fixed. If I select ENGLISH during installation, avast! interface still decides on its own that I want SLOVENIAN language. Then I have to change it on my own through settings. Why are we even bothering reporting stuff if it never gets fixed?

Settings menu fonts are horrible to the max. They are blocky, compacted together and when they get highlighted when you select a certain menu on the left, the text becomes one blob of lines. It's awful.

The entire UI is a mess really to be honest......

This was actually my next thing I wanted to post after staring at it for a bit longer. Everything about new interface is bad.

- awful color scheme (purple, really?)
- huge interface with nothing going on in it
- awful fonts all over the "new" interface
- settings menus are the same as for the last 5? versions (and they aren't good at all)
- Protection statistics digged in totally wrong menu
- Why is Virus Chest still hidden in several submenus!?!?!?

I know you're not suppose to make a copy of competition, but have you guys seen Bitdefender or Kaspersky latest GUI ? avast! misses that compactness, consistency, being pleasant to the eyes.

Current stable avast! version kinda has that. This beta version just doesn't at all. GUI is upgraded, but the settings "behind" it are EXACTLY the same. I mean, open the settings and see for yourself. It's exactly the same cluttered mess as it was for last few years. Sorry, if you're doing a major update, do it properly. Not just transplant the face and leave everything behind it the same.

UI looks a little less cluttered in my opinion from current stable version, nice and clean, don't even see ad on the main gui screen now,  Performance/Gaming Mode will check out more as time allows,  Little slow opening the Gui on this test System though,  can't seem to find the feedback button in the Gui to actually submit feedback from Avast Gui itself.   

Account feature seems to be gone

Seems to have auto registered after clean install of Free version

Settings menu still same as old versions though/components area

Purple color not sure on really, at least it's darker than Orange and White of current stable ui, I kinda don't mind the darkness, as it matches my UI theme on the Windows 10 Systems, dark, though i'd prefer chooseable dark colors,  Default, then chooseable blue/black or Dark Orange/Black with a  little whiteness in menu area would work too in my eyes along those lines.     Overall didn't see many bugs yet at least on my monitor, and system I am testing on currently.   

One issue though with the Performance/Game Mode option Component, having it set for High Performance while gaming, won't that cause PC's or Laptops to overheat, say if your gaming for 3-5 hours straight.   I personally run in balance power setting mode most of the time, so dynamic range of the CPU can be done, unless i'm doing things wrong all this time, first 8 core processor, so kept it in balance just like my old Quad Core

I have not tested this beta, but I liked the old GUI a lot.  Found it looked nice, was simple to use, easy to find what I was looking for, etc...

Without seeing it, outside of a few screen shots, the only thing I don't like about what I am hearing with the new GUI is they made it larger.

Avast's settings is terrible. I can't find anything there. So yeah, agree w that.

yup

Also - that. I had to google where it is few times in the past. That SHOULDN'T be a thing.

I really don't understand this grouping of features in side buttons. They just don't make any sense. They didn't make any sense in current stable build and it doesn't in this beta.

Is it so hard to separate things into 5 categories via side buttons:
- Status (basically current Home + Notifications, statistics etc)
- Real-time protection (all real time shields and its settings)
- On-Demand scans (all on demand scans, antivirus, software updater, WiFi)
- Other tools (Rescue Disk, cleanup tools and all the other non security related garbage)
- Virus Chest (for crying out loud, place the damn thing in plain sight, not dig it in some stupid unrelated on-demand scan submenu)

Instead, we have miles long side panel of the GUI that is empty and all the stuff is cluttered under 1 button. WHY!? I might not be the greatest when it comes to crafting fancy graphics, something avast! team is really good with, but they really have no clue how to organize GUI well. avast! 9 in a way almost had this and then the whole thing just spiraled out of control again. I just can't understand it unfortunately. Sure, primary antivirus task is protection, but humans are visual creatures and there should be A LOT more emphasis on visual appearance of avast! GUI than they do currently. It's very important.

EDIT:
The messed up awful font. I marked the worst offender, but the rest isn't any better. It's thin, hard to read, ClearType makes it even worse and these highlighted texts just merge letters into this unreadable mess.

Can anyone post a screenshot of the free version's new UI? Or is it the same as the pro/IS/premier version?

Ok I installed the latest beta.  I have to say I like the old GUI more.  Especially the "Home" screen of the new GUI, looks way too barren.  They need to reduce the size if it is going to be that sparse/blank.

The other thing I noticed, and not sure if this is the case with the current program, but running speedtests at the below site gives me a ton of bufferbloat.  If I disable Avast, then I get very little bufferbloat.

so there won't be color difference between Free and paid versions and all will be dark.

Awful color scheme (purple not dark). :P
