Thanks for the new beta :)

The issue I encountered is still there unfortunately.
Hi Petr, with this version Mail Shield acting strange, receiving mail fails while AvastSvc.exe eating 1 core of CPU forever.
Another attempt just increases CPU consumes, mails never received.

I made a support package but automatic upload failed somehow, so I uploaded it to avast FTP.

Hi,
I still dont understand why you have to release this version if problems are not fixed.
What will happen if you release new version one month later?

Hi TheOwner, let me comment this from my perspective and based on my experience. The new version itself brings some new features and some bugfixes from the past. And simply, the value delivered by those vs the value decreased by the known problems is higher. It is always a trade off. And I personally do not belive there is a single company releasing software without known problems (even long time known problems shifting between versions). So simply the new version is better in general than the previous (no matter known problems with the new one), that's the point ;) Have a nice day, Petr
