I've manually checked several times during the day, including just now, and nothing. Still 1.0.390.

See if it helps to reboot twice...

Well I did an About Avast and nothing out of the ordinary, but on going into Settings > Update, it reported virus definitions out of date.  I just wondered if this might be the delivery, but still on 1.0.382.

Going to reboot to see if that does anything.

EDIT: 1st reboot went to 1.0.390 about to reboot again.

EDIT2:   Nada, still on the slightly newer UI version 1.0.390.

Thanks for the fast response.

Mine is ver. 19.6.2383 - build 19.6.4546.511

Just tried to update. Still the same version from a month ago. June 25th 2019.

Does the release cycle differ between premium and free?

I'm not. Regular channel (I assume). Free version. Maybe it is still in beta then.

Yup still .390 here as well

Yes, I initially checked my Regular channel version installation which is .390
I have subsequently checked my Beta Channel installation and it is .394
So there's the difference :)

Edit: I will be watching for the update on Regular installation

Yeah I'm not keen on beta-testing with an AV. I'll wait.

@Asyn. Ah you must have got priority treatment  :)
Like groundhog day here. Update>Reboot and again 390.

Edit: Sorry guys, I had missed page 2 of the thread, but my comment above is still true status of latest version available here.
