Please don't rush ALWIL to release the beta.
I haven't yet received any files from ALWIL for the translation.   :(
If any other person is translating it, I'm OK.
I don't care. :P

Igor, why doesn't Iso-G receive the files?

Iso-G, thanks for your interest. Starting with Nov 2005, we employed a Japanese lady (she works full time for us, as a sales and technical support) and she's also responsible for Japanese translations.

I hope you don't mind - I mean, we're very grateful for everything you've done for avast (and the Japanese community around it).

Maybe you can get in touch with Sayaka (that's her name) and share some knowledge? She's a very nice young lady although she's married  :P


BTW the same applies for Italian, Spanish, German, French and Chinese - we now employ native speakers in all those languages.... Our team is growing fast.  :)

Cheers

I have a question, in the future will you have to upgrade to the latest version of Windows to be able to use all the features of avast! like Boot Time Scanning?

zivilist: Thanks for your effort. The translation of the help file to German is planned, but it didn't start yet, so it'll probably take quite some time. The pages you provided are quite important though, so I'll try to include them. Thanks!

Iso-G: I'm trying to use "indoor resources" where possible because it's their job and they're paid for that :)
If you want to go on with participating on the translation, however, just let me know - I'll be happy to send you the package, either for translation or checking/corrections - whatever you feel like.

justin1278: Right now, I don't know about any plans to drop support for older OS. The boot-time scanner works on all NT-based platforms, so I don't think we're going to remove it.

I think he meant if you'll impliment new features limited to Vista OS only (like some features are currently limited only to NT systems).

Vista seems to have a different 'boot' time behavior like RejZor said.
Is it related to 64bits plataform?

As far as I know, there's no difference in Vista regarding the boot time scan. Or more precisely, since I don't know much about Vista: I know we fixed a tiny problem in 4.6.731 (November 2005) and the boot-time scanner subsequently worked as expected in Vista, without any changes in the boot-time scanner code (and the problem fixed was actually a very questionable call in avast!, which previous OSes accepted without problems, but Vista denied; nothing really significant).

Ok so XP will get all of the features of avast! that Vista will have?

Under the hood, Vista (espcially 64-bit) requires many code changes. However, we're trying to hide these technical details and make it completely transparent, i.e. keeping the feature set identical.

For new products, we'll probably stick with support for Win2K and later though... Win9x seems to be too much pain in the a..... - and it user base is constantly narrowing...


Thanks
