I receive a notice of a new version but see no announcement?

I've updated via the UI.

Yes, they have sneaked this one out with no fanfare in the forums :)

I always wonder if program updates should be released so close to the weekend.

Many of us have voiced our concern about that practice.
For me it's easy if something really goes badly. :)

Have been playing with that one today on my win10 system, created a RollBackRX point prior to Firefox and Avast Updates.

Starting to get a little familiar with its notices pre-startup.

Well, it's the same version number as the last one mentioned in the beta sub-forum.

And reading all the changes in the all the beta 19.7 versions' first posts I am disappointed to see that there's nothing related to my one issue I reported some time ago - Avast blocks the use of the Connect function in the Windows 10 Action Centre, which actually uses Miracast to project the laptop screen onto e.g. a Miracast enabled TV or onto a TV via a Roku Express, which does Miracast. And Avast doesn't even pop up a notification to say it stopped it or offer to allow it.

I'm using the free version and I'm not having any problems as you can see from this picture I just took.

I'm using the paid version, and it's the Firewall that blocks the Miracast, which isn't in the free version. And they've removed the configuration options that would allow proper use - the only way currently is to use settings that open far too wide a hole. I told them exactly what the problem was, and how the now hardwired 'friends' list is blocking reserved private address ranges and reserved ports it shouldn't, which Miracast uses.

I'm quite happy with the firewall in Windows 10. :)

I'm not.  :(

But you would think that Avast would fix something that prevents a feature of Windows 10 from working - and not some obscure feature, but one with a honking great on/off button in the Action Centre. Maybe they are just relying  on the fact that because Avast doesn't put up a notification, users won't realise that it's the Avast Firewall stopping the built in Windows 10 screen casting working.

Reported to Avast. Let's see if that helps.

Thanks. Hope it does better than the support ticket I opened with chapter and verse on the details of the problem, the reserved-as-private IP ranges that should be in the 'Friend networks but aren't etc.
