Avast AV Beta-Version [20.1.2395]

Changelog/Fixes:
• Browser extensions
   » Improved detection of status of browser extensions
   » Added support of detection in Opera browser
• Update process of user interface was improved
• Smart Scan improvements - Advanced issues - when everything is ok, we are showing "green" results instead of hidding the tab
• Rescue Disc is working again
• It is now possible to export certificate in Mail Shield settings

Known issues:
• Status of Chrome browser extension is not reported correctly in Avast UI

Hinweis: As we were unable to release 19.9 to public (due to many reasons), we switched the version to 20.1 and prepare another beta. It means that 20.1 is not completely new release, but it follows up the 19.9 release.
