If you're curious, avast 4.7 is on its way...
« on: March 27, 2006, 11:35:12 PM »
Just for your curiosity... avast! 4.7 is on the way...

In a few weeks (two to four) we'll have avast 4.7.
The translators have already received the codes to procede.
So, besides internal changes that were the focus of this update, we'll have - among others - some new features that, if Igor forgive me, I'll post here for the first time. I have no more details, just for your curiosity.

1. The program will now Ask before deleting files from Chest as a lot of us posted in the wishlist.

Edited according to Igor's explanation above:
2. There will be a GUI improvement showing the license type: EDUCATIONAL, GOVERNMENT, HEALTHCARE INSTITUTION and NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION.

3. The resident program will now Scan dynamic libraries on load (Windows XP+ only) besides the other well-known options (32-bit/64-bit Windows (Win32/Win64) executables, 16-bit Windows executables and MS-DOS based programs).

Well, this is all folks... at least, what the translators could see in the new code...

Hmm... Does this mean that avast! will start early enough to catch those pesky process injecting Trojans before they load their dll's? Does this mean we won't have to tell users to get Ewido if they want to deal with malware that injects a dll?

That would certainly be a boost for avast!  ;D

I'd like to comment the 2nd point - I don't think there will be any change in avast! licensing. There already are discounts for educational organizations, etc. - if you check the "Price calculator" on our web pages, you'll see the corresponding option.

I don't know where these new texts will be used, but my guess is that they're just for the About box to show what kind of license is currently in use (i.e. just a tiny GUI improvement, nothing more).

I think it won't be this time yet...
avast 4.7 will be just minor improvements on features themselves but scanning should be faster and more reliable  8)

Great! When you combine avast! with Opera you won't have to worry about viruses ever again. Especially the new 9.0 version!  ;D  http://labs.opera.com/

Do a google search for ... image resizer ... OR ... picture resizer ... and you should get many hits. A couple of free ones are IRfanViewer(sp) and Mihov's Image Resizer. Both are relatively easy to use.

Avast 4.7 is scheduled to be released approx April 15. We'll have a short "beta" (exclusive for forum users) about a week before that - e.g. in about a week.

BTW let me just say that the number of changes substantially exceeds the list given by Tech ;) :-*



Also, there'll likely be another update around May 5th, making avast (finally) fully compatible with Windows Vista (Beta 2 of Vista should be released at this time). Between April 21 and 30, we'll be in Redmond fixing all the issues...


Cheers
