New beta version 20.1.2395
« on: February 07, 2020, 02:04:25 PM »
Hi everyone,

after many weeks without any new beta release I`m glad to announce that new beta version is ready - 20.1.2395 (build 20.1.5026). As we were unable to release 19.9 to public (due to many reasons), we switched the version to 20.1 and prepare another beta. It means that 20.1 is not completely new release, but it follows up the 19.9 release.

What's new
Browser extensions
- Improved detection of status of browser extensions
- Added support of detection in Opera browser
Update process of user interface was improved
Smart Scan improvements - Advanced issues - when everything is ok, we are showing "green" results instead of hidding the tab

What was fixed
- Rescue Disc is working again
- It is now possible to export certificate in Mail Shield settings

Known issues
- Status of Chrome browser extension is not reported correctly in Avast UI

Avast premium https://bits.avcdn.net/productfamily_ANTIVIRUS/insttype_APR/platform_WIN/installertype_ONLINE/build_BETA


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

AVAST Team.

I would rather see remove most bloatware, spyware and adware alongside with behaviour shield to make Avast faster, less annoying, more private and no broken installations of legit software due to FP in Behaviour shield.

This is ironic,


Installing the Beta on a system that already has the Avast Secure Browser installed,
Resulted in the removal of the Secure Browser.
