You're right, we'll be releasing a new 4.8 update soon. The main reason is that there's a security vulnerability in avast 4.8.1335 (in one of its kernel mode drivers) that needs to be fixed. Plus, there are some improvements in the scanning engine as well (in line with v5 preparations).

We didn't quite mean to release it as a beta first, but since you've already found it (as something we're currently testing)... be our guests.

I expect it will be officially released ~ next Tuesday (as time permits).

Thanks
Vlk
How can we test if it is working as it should?

So far, the only difference I have seen with the beta is the on-access scanner windows:

No ad (I don't really know if it had been removed before though)
'More options' window has been reshuffled a bit

I like it :)

EDIT:Helps if I add the images ::)
Man, the gif quality of the Windows snipping tool is crap...

EDIT2:That's better, some nicer images, a bit more work, but it's worth it. And they're smaller ;)

EDIT3:Ok, little thing, not sure if it is the beta or not but:
Open up the skin chooser, and move the window about. Can you see the little bar on the bottom which is completely transparent?
In my image you can sorta see the end of "will microsofts free app..." and Bob3160's name (it was above FF at the time ;)

I don't see any change in the first to views from ver 1335.
