It's scheduled for late this year. Probably, October ;)
It will be preceded by a beta phase.

What's the rush, it will be ready when its ready, I can't see what everyone is in a flap about. I certainly don't want them to rus something out the door to meet any artificial schedule.

Keep monitoring these forums and you will see when the Beta build is released and that should hopefully mean the regular release isn't too far off.

I agree with DavidR here,
Every other post is about when it is coming out, do people not use the search function anymore ???

Since Avast 4.8 is working so well, I am in no rush for #5, although certainly a little interested in it.
I don't mind if it takes another year, if it needs to take that long. (Don't think it will, but I have seen the results of software rushed into existence too often.)

LOL.  At least they're not as bad as Blizzard Entertainment.  We could be waiting years for an update then.

It'll be soon, just hang on....

Maybe you can advise us, while waiting, what feature of avast 5 you now do not have that makes you impatient for the new release?

I assume it must be something more significant than "I just want it".

hi frnds well it would be cool if avast 5 is released this year as avast 4.8 doesnt use  heuristic  and i think with that avast will be a great security software:) well i use avast with malwarebyte pro and i think its very good coz malwarebyte catches virus avast miss!

No, I mean it. Welcome to the forums.  :)

And how are "unknown viruses" detected using heuristics? What mechanism?
