Also do you know if Alwil will put the .deb installation file on the main download page?
Most probably... Right now, the Linux version isn't the faster one to be updated... Dublin is working hard on it but... time isn't enough.
Anyway, did you see anyone from Alwil team in the last three days?
I hope that none a catastrophy happened in Prague  ;D

No. avast for Linux is just an on-demand scanning, not a resident antivirus.
There are few antivirus residents for Linux. Anyway, few Linux viruses that requires the on-access scanner  :)
