The beta is now over. The update has been officially released as 4.7.1098. Thanks to everyone who helped testing.

Hi *,

again, it's my pleasure to announce a pre-release version of the upcoming update of avast! Home/Professional, build number 4.7.1083. Edit 11/26: now 4.7.1091; hopefully the last one before release

How to install it (for starters - most people already know this trick anyway ): simply download and run the following program: link removed. That's about all it takes (provided you have the latest version of avast Home/Pro already installed, of course).

There is a number of fixes in this release. It is also recommended to all users experiencing some problems with the latest official release (4.7.1074) - which does indeed contain a couple of problems, especially if running under Vista.


Any comments on this release are very welcome and appreciated!


Thanks
Vlk

Thanks, just downloaded it, didn't take as long (dial-up) as I remember with past betas.

A cosmetic one, I just noticed the about avast shows a build date of SEPT2007, this was the same for the 4.7.1074 info on about avast. This was the subject of a topic on the forums shortly after some downloaded 1074.

Yeah, this has usually been the case with all the betas. It will be fixed before the version is officially released (an exception to this was v4.7.1074 which, as I already said, was, ehm, sort of an inadvertence)

Cheers

I'm using it, both in XP and Vista. No problems.
Just that I'm wishing the new avast 5 features and they're taking so long to appear, even few and little ones... :'(
