New beta version 21.1.2446
« on: February 04, 2021, 07:57:51 PM »
Hi everyone,

there is a new beta version ready - 21.1.2446 (build 21.1.5950). As this is our first 21.1 Release Candidate build, there are just a few cosmetic bug-fixes without impact on "visible" product functionality. However some serious issues have been found. We are doing our best to make them fixed in the final build that will be released next week.

Known issues
- webcam shield does not block untrusted application in using webcam under specific conditions
- malware may not be detected by a scan under specific conditions

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

Thanks for the beta. I'll test it tomorrow. Also remember the issue I've pointed out with the stupid thing where it pops up that avast firewall has allowed an app to access the network? Well, that has to be fixed in 21 because let me tell you, it's annoying as heck because it interrupts me for example when I'm typing because it takes focus away from an app. I don't think this is an issue for sighted people, just with screen readers, but it's not my screen readers fault, and if i want this to stop i have to disable my firewall.

After your post, I did reboot once more but still no luck here.
