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

Also please be informed that we would appreciate if you would be so kind and try our Antivirus product based on so called "icarus" setup (installation and update engine) already used for other Avast products but now available also for AV.

I thought I was on Icarus channel, but I got build 21.8.6577 ???

It looks like I unknowingly switched channel to instup... maybe I chose wrong installer :-X

Tried this beta but uninstalled it because:

Import Settings does not fully restore saved settings like Exceptions, list of Ransomware Shield Protected Folders.

New firewall feature should show 'Home Network' and 'Private Network' instead of Trusted and Untrusted Networks because most people want firewalls to block incoming connections. Also we can't delete any app listed in the Firewall Apps.
