New AVG Beta version 17.8.3034
« on: October 27, 2017, 11:18:28 AM »
Hi all,

we just released new beta AVG version 17.8.3034 (build 17.8.3693.0).

New Features
  • We are going to drop the ZEN model (application and related services) and the implementation is splitted to two release versions (17.8 and 17.9). Now there is the first part done for BETA testing.
    • Subscriptions are now handled directly in the AVG, not in the ZEN. You can find details related to it directly in AVG -> About -> Subscription.
    • Installation of other AVG applications are now possible via My AVG button situated in the main AVG User Interface just next to the "Menu" item.
    • Enhanced reporting of Behavioral Shield error states and restart request during malware removal (if required)

Fixed Bugs
  • Fixed BSOD on x64 systems caused by Sandbox driver
  • Fixed crashing User Interface when Sign-In in is used
  • Fixed resetting Game Mode rules to default (all ON) after service (computer) restart
  • Fixed Avast service exceptions creating dumps of it (without service crash)
  • Fixed issue with Gmail signature (007 error) that was breaking outgoing emails
  • Fixed Firewall new network toaster to set the correct profile
  • Fixed several issues in passive mode (e.g. Avast in passive mode when no other Antivirus solution is installed, Avast in passive mode when another Antivirus client is installed as second etc.)
  • Note: And several other internal fixes and tweaks of the product.

Known Issues
  • Behavioral Shield does not display detection dialog when any of the automatic modes is enabled
  • User Interface freezes under some (currently unknown) conditions
  • When logging into a zone (subscription) in AVG (About -> Subscription) is not reflected in ZEN until restart
  • Logging out of a zone (subsription) directly from AVG does not work properly
  • When Remove License is used in Subscription, User Interface is not refreshed
  • Purchases does not work properly
  • Two AVG product icons on the desktop (will be corrected in 17.9 when other changes related to this are done)
  • Logging in ZEN zone (subscription) does not trigger entitlement download (workaround: log-in in AVG directly instead)
