Vlk, any chance for "Pidgin" support? GAIM used to be supported but that client is now long gone and avast! doesn't support it anymore.

The beta has now been updated to v4.8.1187.
<snip>
Main changes in this release:
<snip>
- changed the way INI modification consent dialog is shown. Now, it is shown only if notepad.exe is trying to access the file

See this post, http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=35060.msg295103#msg295103 for the inadvertent consequence of the above quoted change made in the update, not being able to edit avast4.ini with anything other than notepad.

From another topic.

Before the final release, i.e. in a few days.

When I shut down my machine with the latest version and having had used my Outlook email, I'm getting a "Waiting for Application to Close" window for OUTLOOK.EXE when I shut down.

Is there a know email module bug?

Did you have any other antivirus in this computer in the past?
Any other Outlook plugin that could be interacting with avast?

I've had a number of other antiviruses in the past including recent release of antivir Premium. All left over entries removed prior to avast installation...

Trying it again today....
