 I also had an update on 2 computers, took about 5 minutes per computer to install.
Rebooted all seems well,have detected no problems.

Avast Internet security Version 19.7.2.388   Build 19.7.4674.494.

Also after I updated, their is a option to upgrade to Premium for free.

No issues here. A couple of minutes and one reboot.

Er... Why has the new version not been advertised on here by the Avast Team as "NEW Version 19.7 ...", replacing "NEW Version 19.6 ..."
or is this just a vicious rumour?

Edit:
Just opened UI on my Win10 machine and yes a "SECURITY UPDATE" was offered.
Now have 19.7.2388 (build 19.7.4674.494). So is true. Update via UI was painless.
I am glad that I forced a Windows update to complete earlier today to avoid any potential conflict.

I suspect that the latest beta if there were no major issues in it https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=228877.0 was the preamble to release a regular version 24hrs after that release.

That said I still hate regular releases (if this is what it is) being released with the same version number as the beta version, it just causes confusion every time.  As can be seen here from regular users.

Personally I have stopped avast doing automatic program updates some time ago.  I don't even have it notify me when one is available, I have set it to Manual Program Update.

Well I just did a manual program update and have rebooted.

And it looks a little strange as prior to the boot the version and build looked mixed up 19.7.2388 (build: 19.6.4546.517).  However after the boot it appears correct EDIT: avast! free 19.7.2388 (build: 19.7.4674.494.

I just updated Avast Free in my VM. After reboot the Avast main GUI refused to load. A spinning loading icon forever where the status screen should be. Side menus worked though. Also GUI version was .378

I had to do an extra reboot before the GUI would actually start. Version .397 this time.

DAMMIT AVAST!

I just checked the privacy settings. A new checkbox was added and is selected by default. "Allow usage data to be shared with 3rd parties for analysis of product performance and usage".

So shady to have that enabled by default. Especially since I have the other two checkboxes unchecked. The installer could infer I would not want to have this enabled.

Shame on you Avast. Every damn time my trust in your AV gets eroded further.

So sad that I can't trust my AV to respect my privacy and I have to do these manual checks after every major update.
