New beta version 23.9.6081
« on: September 07, 2023, 03:33:14 PM »
Hi everyone,

there is a new beta version ready - 23.9.6081 (build 23.9.8473).

What's new
  • end of support for old type of virus definitions (virus pattern signature) - more info here: https://blog.avast.com/virus-definition-updates-eol
  • webcam shield extended by microphone protection for MS Windows 10 and higher (lower layer of the implementation is done - thus code change in this build too; finishing user interface; will be available in the following two weeks or even sooner) - so basically if there is misuse of the microphone detected, webcam detection dialog is shown (or based on the mode used in its configuration Smart/Strict/Disabled)
  • display number of devices in use for your subscription
  • extended logging for the icarus type of setup (installer)
  • updated cURL and OpenSSL libraries to address some performance improvements and vulnerability fixes used in our Webshield, MailShield and Network Inspector

What was fixed
  • kernel crash in sandbox driver

Known issues
  • not respected default browser setting if Avast Secure Browser installed for Bank Mode (Avast Secure Browser is opened no matter the system default settings)
  • incomplete paths for some of the applications added to Do not disturb component (problems with their execution from Antivirus directly, not showing full path in the settings, etc.)
  • Windows Security icon and process not started properly
  • Do not disturb mode can't handle notifications from MS Teams/Skype
  • Webcam Shield does not work once added as a component without performing computer restart (valid for icarus type of setup only)
  • some compatibility issuses with MS smart app control mode for Windows 11

Shouldn't this new Avast beta version topic be the one that is pinned (in the Avast forum) and not the new AVG beta release  ?

I hope all "Known issues" will be fixed before stable version will be released. I said this because new version is usually released at the same date each month.
