New beta version 20.7.2422
« on: August 13, 2020, 02:32:07 PM »
Hi everyone,

I`m glad to announce that new beta version is ready - 20.7.2422 (build 20.7.5527).

What is new
  • User Interface: numerous accessibility improvements, including new colors, sizes, etc.

What was fixed
  • stopping SmartScan may freeze the User Interface
  • kernel crash (BSOD) caused by aswNetHub.sys (Avast Network Security) driver
  • fixed crash of setup during AV uninstall

Known issues
  • smart scan can be automatically executed after the update from presious 20.7 BETA build
  • there is issue with installation the product into a folder containing diacritics (and other characters may be affected too)
  • not all configuration is removed from registry after uninstallation
  • reset and restore (from backup file) of the settings does not work properly
  • List of sensitive documents found or already protected shows just one file (although all found files are protected - user interface problem)
  • changing User Interface language may require a reboot to take effect

"not all configuration is removed from registry after uninstallation"
Precisely why I was a bit skeptical about adding these items to the registry.
It may be faster but can be problematic when trying to remove the program.
How many of the known issues are new?

Hi Bob, just a comment to the configuration in registry and its removal - most of them were removed just fine in the first BETA, but some of them not and therefore some steps in uninstallation had to be redesigned. Currently under testing and should be ok in next BETA. Thank you for the first feedback regarding this, it helped to focus on it more.

Secondly, 5 of 6 known issues are new, but in terms of whether they were in the previous BETA too, hard to say as sometimes you do something differently and a bug appears but it could be there for some time already  ;)

Well, this is about UI 1.0.547, Avast Omni has its own/different UI channel/version.

Hello all,
My avast version updated automatically to the newest beta version. I tried to extend the avast free antivirus protection to check how is it accessible. I could enter the activation code, but in the comparison screen between the avast free and premier versions, I couldn't read it by pressing arrow keys or navigate by pressing the tab key. I'm using the NVDA screenreader.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open avast free antivirus with enabled nvda screenreader.
2. Press the menu button, then the subscriptions link.
3. Click the "extend protection" link.
Effect:
Screenreader reads nothing, except when you press the insert+b shortcut key. Insert+b is a shortcut to read all in current window. I add also, that you can enter the activation code in subscriptions page.
Thank you for reading this.
I wish you nice time till I found next accessibility issue.

Maybe it's Avast that needs to make sure that all version when they run their beta product are using the same beta?
