The update has now been officially released as 5.0.594.
Thanks to everyone who helped testing.


Hi *,

we'll soon be releasing a new build of avast 5 Free/Pro/IS. As usual, we're making the build available for public testing before it's officially released (so far the version number is 5.0.590).

How to get it
links removed

How to install it
Just run the setup executable (links above). You can either install it from scratch, or on top of an existing avast installation (installing over both 5.0.xxx or 4.8.yyy should be fine). Users from the previous beta build (5.0.584) can update directly by using the built-in Program update feature. A reboot will be required to complete the installation.

Also, if you're already using the previous beta build 5.0.492 or 499, you can go to 5.0.504 by simply invoking the program update feature from within the avast GUI.

What's new
Most notable improvements include:
- improved interaction with Windows System Restore; namely, avast now auto-repairs itself when it detects a corrupted VPS due to a System Restore (or other reasons)
- aswSP.sys: solved a minor stability issue
- solved a problem related to inserting of the license files
- added the activation codes feature
- improvements in the avast! sandbox
- solved a problem when avast was continuously slowing down (especially in conjunction with the screensaver)
- performance improvements in the Behavior Shield
- avast Screen saver now accessible even in 64-bit Windows Vista
- stability improvement in aswTdi.sys (solved a compatibility problem with AVG)
- IS firewall: solved a potential BSOD condition
- various improvements in the avast! sandbox module
- minor fixes in the GUI
- added Catalan and Belarusian language packs


And new in v5.0.590:
- solved intermittent hangs during full scan
- added more logging in the service (should be useful to debug potential service crash issues)
- added Romanian language pack (still incomplete)

Thanks much
Vlk

Also AIS users are encouraged to test the Outlook toolbar, which underwent a big code review in order to ensure greater compatibility and foolproofing. Tested in house on versions 2000 - 2010

That module is still under development, which will be going on for a few more months. We shall announce more on that later (when it's ready for testing). So please be patient and stay tuned.
