I'm on Release Preview ring now and i want to go back to slow ring (or fast in the future), and the only thing that is stopping me is the incompatibility of Avast with Windows 10's latest previews. Was this fixed?

I'm sad  :( . I was missing slow and fast rings and asked because i don't have the time to try to upgrade builds and then go back to stable if it doesn't work.

Thank you for responding. Our developers didn't confirm this problem as fixed, but it is possible that this particular preview version will work with Avast.

You can't really expect any anti-virus excluding Windows Defender to be compatible with Windows 10 insider builds.
