There are numerous topics on versions 5 asking basically the same questions and the answer hasn't changed there is no official release date notified nor is there a conformed list of features.

The one thing for sure is that you will find out here first.

Maybe ALWIL guys should make a sticky about it so we can just point all ppl asking about avast! 5 to that sticky.

Who said anything about schedules and dates or promises?

"We are actively working on avast! 5, release date is still unknown for now, but we will post more info when it's ready for public release or public beta testing."

Something alone these lines. Nothing fixed, just generic explanation for ppl to stop asking same thing over and over.

I'm expecting 4.9 before 5.0. ;)

Of course there will be 4.9 betas & rc's before 4.9 stables. ;D

We have a long road to 5.0. :'(

Well there is also meant to be an update to 4.8 due soon, and there should be a beta of that first ;D

So much speculation and version predicting.

I will be more than happy to be wrong - but I suspect a 4.8 point update from the team.  I doubt anything earth shattering will be revealed - I am sure the team is keeping their powder dry for the 5.0 release.

Let's give the next beta offering from the team the best workout we can - cos we (as well as the avast team) need all the improvement we can muster for the next major effort.

i hope they skip 4.9...
first i don't like the number 9 - it looks so "unatractive" :)
and the second thing is that i would say that the Avast team should concentrate on Avast! 5 - an update to 4.9 isn't necessary (in my opinion) and not worth spending time in it - it would be better if all the improvements directly come into v5.

Jimi Hendrix wanted his guitar amps to be louder. He told his amp maker "Everybody's amps go up to volume 10. I want mine to go to Volume 11." They tried to explain it to him...... "But Jimi, those are just numbers on a dial. When the dial is turned all the way to your right, that is as loud as it goes regardless of what numbers are on the knob."     but Jimi would not be dissuaded... "I want my amps to go to Volume 11." So the amp manufacturer took the exact same amps with the exact same knobs but re-painted all of the knobs on Jimi's amps so that the numbers went from 0-11. And Jimi was happy. I'm not sure what brought this story to mind. ;)
