« on: November 28, 2018, 03:25:46 PM »
Hi everyone,

new beta version 19.1.2357 (build 19.1.4102) is released.

This release contains many changes but one is really big - this is the first fully 64bit Avast version. Please note that anything can be affected by this change. Please check if you find any issue in Avast functionality - any report is valuable for us. There are some limitations mentioned below, please go through the known issues carefully.

What's new

  • Fully 64bit version (one installer, contains both versions)
  • 19.1 version can`t be installed on Windows XP/Vista
  • Deep network scan research participation possibility at the end of Wi-Fi inspector scan (only on some networks)
  • Improved network detection in Firewall
  • Redesigned global settings. There is a specific thread about new settings (report bugs, suggest improvements, discuss, hate, whatever ;-) - https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=221665.0

What was fixed
  • Avast notifications disappear in some cases
  • SecureDNS not turned ON after "OFF time" passes
  • FW not running after upgrade from free to premier
  • AntiRootkit and AntiExploit setting needs service restart to apply changes
  • Reset settings to default does not affect firewall settings
  • BSOD because of IDP
  • Result of boot time scan is not in history
  • Switched values (threat type and URL) in Web Shield detection dialog
  • Add & Modify components started from UI is opened in background

Updated manually via UI, the beta is running smooth here, so far.
It seems that system startup is heavier/longer than before, though.

Trouble is I must be blind but I certainly can't see any option referring to "Avast Signature"
Please see screen shot.

It is in your attached screenshot, though as far as I can recall, it has never been called "Avast Signature" though, just "Insert note into clean message (outgoing)."

Ah, ok David, I seem to recall that it was worded differently. ???

When the new settings UI was first announced, i was afraid some settings might get removed. I don't care much about this one, but still...

It was called Avast signature.

In this particular case, it's the same setting. In the "old" settings, the same checkbox was in two places - first in Mail Shield settings, second (easier to reach) on the main page of settings.
