I have no idea where you got this from ?

Avast Premium has had a firewall component from it's inception. Its predecessor, Avast Premier and before that Avast Internet Security had firewall components.

So can you clarify what it is you are seeking ?

It wasn't clear from your post that you didn't mention that you had Avast Free.  Additional highlighting in the quote below is mine.

Quote from: Extract
Big changes to Firewall! — We've redesigned our Firewall, improved its protection, and made it free for everyone to use.

If you've got Avast Free Antivirus, you'll find your new Firewall in your Protection menu. It's already turned on and protecting you. If you've got Avast Premium Security, we've upgraded you to "Premium Firewall

That just means changes to the firewall (not a new firewall as such), so all of the changes to the firewall would be present after that updates release and for future incremental program updates.

Whilst it was released to a limited number of free users (beta initially) to see how it worked with many user with different operating systems, configurations and installed programs.  To date I have the latest Avast Free and whilst it mentions the Avast Firewall it isn't in the free version yet.  Avast 21.10.xxxx is in beta testing and I don't know if that would include the avast free firewall component yet or not.

One thing for sure, there is no rush as presumably you already have a firewall (windows presumably) until it becomes available.

Just FYI, Firewall component automatically got installed on my Free Avast Antivirus yesterday (not beta). So, it looks like it is indeed distributed to users, albeit quite slowly.
Main: Win10 Pro 22H2 64bit / Core i5-7400 3.0GHz / 16GB RAM / Avast 22 Premium Beta(Icarus) / Comodo Firewall
Mobile: Win10 Pro 22H2 64bit / Core i5-3340M 2.7GHz / 8GB RAM / Avast 22 Free / Windows Firewall Control

ok,good news, I will also wait patiently. is this feature also available for free users?
Show notifications about newly created 'allow' rules: check the box next to this setting to receive notifications when the Firewall allows or blocks new communication lines.
Internet Connection Sharing Mode: allows trusted users to connect to the internet via your PC, or to troubleshoot problems with devices, such as printers connecting to the internet via your PC.
For programs without defined rules, do the following: use the drop-down menu to define what the Firewall does when it detects a new communication path.
System rules: click this button to configure predefined system rules.
Packet rules: click this button to configure communication settings by connection type.
List of network profiles: use the drop-down menu in the individual network pane to configure network profiles.

Still nothing on mine (Avast UI > Protection) other than a link to 'Upgrade.'

There is little point in these speculative posts, when it is ready it will be released, be that a phased release doesn't really matter.
