New beta version 21.1.2447
« on: February 08, 2021, 06:47:33 PM »
Hi everyone,

there is a new beta version ready - 21.1.2447 (build 21.1.5957). As mentioned in previous release notes, still working on release candidate.

Fixed
- dumping application during or at the end of smart scan (not actually affecting the product functionlity)

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

Known issues are still work in progress - will keep you updated.

EDIT1: there is a new version 21.1.2448 (b5966) released with two small fixes. One related to text used in installations (cosmetic change) and one that should fix a problem with Cleanup being detected as installed in a standalone version (and therefore having a problem to run respective scan) while it is not installed.

EDIT2: there is a new version 21.1.2449 (b5968) released with one more fix related to the problem with Cleanup being detected as installed in a standalone version (and therefore having a problem to run respective scan) while it is not installed as the previous one did not resolve the issue for those already having the problem immediately.

Did this version address the constant UI disappearing over night, that has been an issue for the last couple of weeks? Opening the Avast UI after returning to the PC over night instantly closes. Only see a spilt second of a standard windows title bar. and white window. which instantly disappears. When in this condition. Right clicking on any file and scanning doesn't return any visual or audible results nor can the UI open. Restarting the computer (usually deep in the middle of something) Has been the only way to restore the UI.

Thank you for your work and the beta :)

Hello KKthebeast, I'm sorry for these troubles. May I ask for avast logs: copy content of c:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\log\ into a temp folder, pack (zip) it and send it to petr.blatny@avast.com . If possible please add time and date when you induce it.

Thank you very much
Petr

Just for the record, the German splash screen did finally show up here.
