NEW! avast! 5 pre-release program update [NOW 5.0.394]
« on: January 27, 2010, 09:59:06 PM »
Hi *,

we'll soon be releasing a program update for v5 (a first program update after the official launch). If you'd like, you can test the pre-release bits now. Anyone who has problems with the official build (5.0.377) - especially system-wide crashes or hangs - is welcome to do so. This build is also supposed to fix the "hang" issue of the previous pre-release build (.393) - we'd be very grateful if those who had this problem with the 393 build could verify that it's indeed fixed.

Download links:
links removed - there's a newer version available now.

(sorry, no incremental update for now - but running this full package on a computer with 5.0.377 already installed should allow you to do the update; alternatively, you can always reinstall).

Users of 5.0.393 can go to this build by simply invoking the Program update feature from within the avast UI.


This is a service release that is supposed to fix most of the issues reported for the 5.0.377 version. Most importatly, the intermittent BSODs should hopefully be gone.


Any comments are welcome.

Thanks much
Vlk

If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

"Beta" if you like.  ;)
Something not yet released to the general public (even though it's coming soon).

If you don't have any issues with 377 I don't think you need to bother.

I unfortunately had to drop 377 beta license was over :-(. That's the reason why I asked

Yes of course, but only after it's officially released (i.e. not version 394 but some later one).

Hi, has anyone already tested this build? Any problems solved by it? Like BSODs or generic slowdowns of the system? Thanks. L.

Glad to hear that. Build 393 was actually supposed to be like this but we forgot to fix one little thing which is now fixed in 394.

If we get enough positive feedback on 394, we'll make a new release build probably tonight (Pacific time).
