Beta 17.1.2282
« on: January 02, 2017, 03:01:07 PM »
Hi all,
Happy New Year 2017 to all of you. We decided to celebrate the new year with new beta version ;-)
It contains many fixes we did during the last few weeks. Please note that the behavior analysis (aka IDP) is not included yet, but still planned for January release. It will be included in the next beta version planned in 2-3 weeks.

Newest beta version: 17.1.2282

Changes:
+ GUI fixes
+  New SecureDNS module
+ New tray icon
+ SafeZone: Now, whether you’re in Default or Bank Mode, you’ll use the same settings, bookmarks and history. You’ll even be able to switch between modes without losing your session, so it’s never been easier to shop or bank safely.
+ SafeZone: Added Bookmarks export
+ minor bugs fixed (total 268)

Download links:

Known issues:
+ SmartScan and Browser Cleanup not finished
+ Firewall profiles don't work correctly on Windows XP
+ SafeZone: Links leading to extensions store will not work

Your Avast team

I am very pleased to see this. What's new in the SecureDNS module? Anything on anti-exploit and anti-ransomware modules?

https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=194169.0 - same issue with this beta. Something is really off... Stable works without hiccups/stuttering.

I was hoping to see some improvements in the GUI in this new beta ...

Thanks.  I'll give it a try.

Edit:  Installed it on my laptop, and shut down seems to work, so hopefully the issue is fixed.  As others have mentioned, I also think this GUI is a step back.  The prior version was much better.  I think the beta GUI is a bit drab, and seems too large with wasted space.

  Installed this beta and lost all icons on PC.  Not just on Desktop but everywhere.  Removed beta and went back to 2280 and icons still gone.  Any recommendations appreciated.

  Used the uninstall utility and no change.  Rebooted twice.  Tried system restore and said it was successful but still no icons.  Have all the text below the icons but not the icon itself.  This is on the Desktop and any other thing I look at such as Program Files Downloads, documents etc.  Text but no picture.

  Problem solved.  Found that an iconcache.db file had been deleted from my PC.  Restored it and all is well.  Not sure if the Avast install did it or had anything at all to do with it but it happened at same point in time.  In any event solved.

Is it some random thing?  Both my PC and now laptop do not shut down completely with newest beta installed?

I have also noticed that my laptop will not sleep when the lid is closed, no matter what Windows 10 settings I try.
