New beta version 19.7.2386
« on: August 02, 2019, 01:28:22 PM »
Hi everyone,

new beta version 19.7.2386 (build 19.7.4635) is released.

Known issues
  • Webshield blocks internet after a period of a time (e.g. a week)
  • Mailshield blocks incoming/outgoing messages in Thunderbird
Please note that as those serious issues were found in the very last moment and are already in currently released BETA version too, we decided to release the new version with those issues as fixes for them are not ready yet.

Enjoy this beta!
We are looking forward to your feedback.

I'm confused, it these known issues are already in a previous beta release, but aren't yet fixed,
what  is new in this version that would entice me to install it?

Hi Bob, I know, it looks ugly, however we found it yesterday evening and realized the problem must be in already released version. Colleagues are working hard to find out the source of the problem and fix it asap. Once fixed, there will be a new program update.

But it still begs the question:

What is this beta for, if nothing has been fixed ?
Or there have been no updates to the last beta 19.7.2385 and if so what ?

Normally we see these null change beta releases when you are about to release it as a regular program update.

Surely this beta release should have waited for the fixes.  I'm confused, easily done, but the above comment leads me to believe they aren't in the beta, so why release it ?

Hello everybody,

@DavidR: please let me explain it in more details. Regarding the note about changes. There are several bug-fixes delivered in the new version. However, none of my colleagues decided to inform you about the changes in more details. Sometimes, it could have a good reason to do so. What I can do here is to mention this on our internal meeting in order to improve the situation in the future. Thank you for pointing it here, I personally agree and feel it the same.

So, above mentioned is therefore a good reason to release a new version into the beta for testing, although serious but already released problems were mentioned in the notes.

Thank you.
