No big issue, but FYI, the tray icon doesn't animate anymore.
I personally want to see the icon animation. It let's me know Avast is doing it's job. :)
I think so, too.
+1 Something that used to be unique to Avast and useful that has gone, things that used to stand out from the crowd.  More junkware (non security related) added when useful/unique features get removed.
No worries guys, I'm with you. ;) (Bug also reported on Slack)
I can confirm this is just bug you all found. It will be fixed in some future version of Avast (not sure if next beta).

Will it be fixed before the next regular release comes out???

will this be the final beta before the official release of 17.9? or are we expecting another beta this week? Thanks for the update

Only Avast could possibly answer that as it rather depends on the progress of this beta, resolution of any bugs found (if they are serious not cosmetic).

Fixed BSOD caused by conflict between  DELL percsas3 and aswSP drivers[/li][/list]

Can anyone direct me to forum posts or more information on the circumstances of this BSOD ? 

PS, Do these release notes refer to fixes from previous betas or previous final releases?  It might be helpful to note the version of Avast the issue was first introduced/identified, so they can be avoided if they have high risk.

Most probably not, as this is the first beta for V17.9...

Nope. (At least not on my test system...)

Reinstalled the system windows10 1703 with last update,then installed avast_free_antivirus_setup_offline ver17.8.2318, The next day, i get the information:your license is not valid.but this free antivirus.
The same system environment:windows10 X64 pro 1703 with last update. and comodo firewall 10.0.2.6396 installed.
then Install avast_free_antivirus  ver17.7.3660.0,This did not happen。then direct upgrade  to ver17.8.2318, "Your license is not valid" appearing again.There is a clear difference between the two versions.
After several attempts,should be to solve the problem:allow C:\Windows\System32\taskhostw.exe modify the following registry:
HKUS\*\Software\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\MY
HKUS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Cryptography\CertificateTemplateCache
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\MY
 "Your license is not valid" did not happen.
Test sytem: windows 10 1709 x64 pro with last update, remove ie and Edge.
Frist installed comodo firewall 10.0.2.6420 (hips was off), then installed avast free antivirus 17.9.2319. restast system.
Completed the start,imported  comodo configuration, now hips was on, hips rules: avastsvc.exe  avastui.exe avemupdate.exe aswidsgenta.exe taskhostw.exe TiWorker.exe seted to allowed programs. EVERY thing was ok. The next morning,power on the computer,every thing is ok.
Shut down at noon。Afternoon boot,Network closing,every thing is ok. But connect to the internet, "Your license is not valid" did  happen.
I will do more try to solve this problem.

Unfortunately there will be no beta this week. We agreed to continue with bug fixing and release beta next week in better quality.
