sorry for asking again, but is there any chance of releasing the update "REALLY" this week?
The update was already released. You need to use the beta version.

sorry if you misunderstood my question.
the "update" that I was talking about is the "official update" not the beta update.
I already applied the beta update to avast! and the memory went down..a little..but still it went down..I was just hoping that the official update would be released this week,hoping that the memory problem will really go down..same as before..before the update to 4.8.1351..

thank you.

There won't be any difference regarding the memory usage (and possibly no difference at all) between the "regular" update and the beta.

is that the reason why the official update isn`t release yet?
anyway thanks for providing a beta update, at least the memory usage went down even a little.

hsobrevilla02,
Can you tell us about your experience with the beta ?
What do you mean that the memory usage went down a little - is the problem solved or not.

Thanks

The reason is that it's being tested - whether there are no new problems caused by the update.
However, if no problems are found, the beta will simply be released as the regular update.

Igor,

How risky is it to use the beta ?

I really need to know if the original memory problem is solved, but I worry about the affects of the beta on my system.
So what can happen if I try it ?

Thanks

Basically, the same as if you update to the regular new build, when there's any.

from my laptop, I noticed the drop in memory from 90Mb to 50-55mb...
I don`t know with others, but for me its okay since the memory went down even a little.

I think I can claim the Avast memory use title:


I'll try the beta.

The fixed version is now officially released (as 4.8.1356).

Just use the program update feature to upgrade to this version.

Thanks much

Thanks Igor, I've been trying the 4.8.1355 beta for one week now and all memory problems with ashServ.exe seem to be fixed, I've been trying for hours without observing any raise in memory for this process. Only ashWebSv.exe seems to increase a bit, from 32MB to 54MB of VM in a few hours, but it doesn't seem to go higher, so this is not really a problem.

Thank you very much for the fix, guys, I'll now upgrade to 4.8.1356.

Has the high memory usage problem been officially fixed yet?
My ashServ.exe is 330 MB in Virtual Memory.

Works great, thx guys - after 20 hrs memory usage does not exceed 32 MB of VM! Keep up good work! We are looking forward to see version 5 but take your time - let it be out after it was thoroughly tested and stable.

best regards,

M
