*** Avast Mac Edition Released...
« on: December 20, 2007, 07:35:48 PM »
I'm glad to announce the availability of the long awaited avast! Mac Edition.
Please refer to http://www.avast.com/eng/avast-antivirus-mac-edition.html for details.

The pricing is the same as with avast! Professional Edition, with an extra 25% introductory discount.


Thanks!
Vlk

If there is a way to translate it without using a Mac... I have Windows and Linux to work on it...

Congratulation   :)  :)
This step should definitly give Alwil a boost in sales, also with the packs as Avast now supports all operating systems (except sun's  ;D )
Keep up the good work, I'll recommand Avast for Macs, is there any chance that it will be sold in Apple stores ??

I dont think ALWIL sells any of their products in Boxed form so I dont think you Will see it in the Apple Store.

Irrespective of language of avast! for mac  - see my last post -i have just bought it as a Christmas gift for my sister.
(1 year licence  ;D)
Is there a possibility to get a cd-cover for it, because there is no boxed version available and i have to burn a cd.
Frontside would be enough  :)
And thanks to Alwil for discount 25 percent!!

I downloaded the free version of avast for Mac and every time I open it, it opens the mail software. I don't use mail for my emails. How can I stop avast from doing that?

Yes, more users complained about this (but, this behavior was present in few recent beta versions too, and nobody complained or had any remark during beta-testing) - in the very next release, this will be fixed/supressed.
