There are a few more "bigger" changes coming (followed by another beta(s)) before an official update is released.
Which are they? We're curious ;D

Here's another cat that that would like to know what these might be ;D

Well, it's mostly internal changes (some of them in preparation of the features/changes to come soon, possibly through a VPS update). So, you might not really see anything different "visually" (actually, let's hope you won't, because it's maily resident protection detection improvements, as far as I remember).

I can imagine... Is Trojan-Gen anything that sounds in your ears? ;)

Wow, i nearly missed testing this version! ;)

but now i also updated to the actual beta and also recognized the bug already noticed:

when i try to start outlook 2007 after the restart of the computer with the update installed a message appears which says that the file "AavmRpch.dll" is missing and outlook has to be closed...

when i again try to start outlook 2007 another message appears which tells that there is a problem with the Avast! plugin - Outlook asks for a restart of itself --> outlook closes and opens again with no problems, but with the following add-in disabled: "avast! 4 (ashoutxt.dll)

didn't notice any other problems...

yours

Reboot again if that doesn't work try running the aswbeta.exe again.

I had this some time ago with another beta for some reason it didn't take first time and that was pre avast self-defence module and I had to run the install again.

Glad you got it in the end.

That's right, I don't think it has been addressed yet.

Is this still the case?

Can anyone please confirm if the dreaded MS Outlook plugin problem with the latest pre-release if it's been fixed yet? I'm not asking for a quick fix, it's just that I would like to go for the beta, but as I use MS Outlook 2000, I am not sure if it will cause problems opening emails or not.

The problem with the Outlook plugin has already been identified. A beta refresh should be released soon.
