avast needs not only virtualisation as checks in virtual environments are easily recognized by malware code and it hides its malware features. avast also needs behavioral analysis in real environment. These two technologies are already implemented in BitDefender 2010 for example.

Well avast 5 doesn't 'need' behavioural analysis, as it is already reported as being part of avast 5

There is no need to hurry and release a buggy program, let the team takes its time and deliver a quality product.

personally would love to know when the new AVAST  might be out

More its take time more its can be good and less bug. So you want a security suite buggy or a great 1 ? I think a great 1. Then you should wait. If needed count the day.

I think some forum members frustration with discussions about Avast 5 stems from the fact that the discussions on the forum about Avast 5 go back to about a year or more ago and, IIRC, there were some posts from the insiders that indicated a Fall release and promises of some screen shots that did not come about. Given that they've been cooking Avast 5 for over a year and the competition is developing products with more sophisticated detection methods, I don't think it's unreasonable that customers expect Avast to get it done. It's been s long time coming. At the same time, I respect Avast for making sure the product is fully cooked before releasing it publically.

Yes, better cooked than half-baked and causing trouble like another AV programme recently.

Whatever they make, they better make it good given that Microsoft is now offering a full AV for free.

I would have thought anybody who had a friend who's mum's sister knew someone who had a brother who once had the product hinted at installed on their computer would have known the answer to that.

Here's a hint: Starts early in the alphabet. Comes from Europe. Not Avira.
(As evidenced by thousands of posts on help forums.)
