It maybe an age thing but i like to update my PC manually when i boot it and see conformation it is updated i don't want to rely on not getting an error message as conformation it is up to date.

I know we can check the Defs folder to see if streaming updates are working correctly and i will continue  to do so but this is not how Avast is supposed to work and that is why many here are not happy with the situation
To me this looks like you are using a program you dont trust?

I don't think i could have explained my view of the current situation any better and as to me it looks like you are trolling, bye.

Hi guys, I just got updated to VPS 191026-0.

I don't know what is different to your installation (beta or otherwise), but all I see are streaming updates for 19102600_stream VPS is still at 19102302, which is correct according to About Avast and Update at the time of starting this post.

Whilst doing this VPS 19102600 was downloaded behind the scenes.

So I now have it too :)

EDIT: Note that the UI bug is still there in About Avast not reporting the correct VPS version.

Yes, this will be fixed with a program update later on.

I'm sure it will, but just how difficult can it be when the Update area reports it correctly.  It is little niggly things like this that annoy people. 

We need to have a pause for reflection and clear up all existing bugs and issues before we move on to another set of changes.  When invariably we find more bugs/issues that weren't a problem previously, that is just sloppy.

Well, that's something for the devs to answer. ;)

It certainly is, I have to wonder what happens with in house QA and Alpha testing.

Hopefully they will get that right and fix the About Avast bug and perhaps show the stream update ;)

"we will amend the way we are displaying the time stamp but don't expect this to happen instantly. it won't happen sooner than 19.9/19.10 release"
It's always best to show the entire answer given. :)
