Avast AV Release-Version [21.3.2459]

Changelog/Fixes:
• Better scan performance — We’ve made a lot of small performance improvements to various security components (running on background)
• Improved Rescue Disk — We’ve added a portable web browser to our Rescue Disk so you can search the web even when Windows isn’t working
• Fewer distractions — We no longer show pop-up messages when your antivirus is open
• Passive Mode fix — We’ve fixed a bug that would sometimes disable Passive Mode soon after it was turned on
• Because of an expiring MS certificate for signing drivers, we had to block updates and installations of users with outdated/unpatched versions of Win7 (up to KB3033929). Unless they update their OS, they will stay on 21.2 version.
• Implemented Countdown (auto-close) of Cyber Capture dialogs
• Additional Rescue Disk improvements (postponing toolkit installation until MSI installation finishes, adding retries to downloading RCD files, etc.)
• Fixed cases when both our Firewall and Windows firewall were running simultaneously
• Fixed issue where the restart dialog didn’t appear in Silent Mode
• Fixed issues where our uninstall survey was not displayed
• Fixed issue when the UI didn’t show the correct state of IDP (Behavioral Shield) features
• Some of those scan optimizations mentioned in our public release notes include: Startup, registry callbacks, behavioral events, on-exec DLLs scanning, identified opportunities to skip some scans, etc.)

Avast AV Release-Version [21.4.2464]

Changelog/Fixes:
• Improved Wi-Fi Inspector — We now scan for even more types of threats, and our improved results screen allows you to better understand what we’ve found thanks to clearer explanations, better organization, and improved tips for resolving detected problems
• No more popups in streams — Good news, Windows 10 users! Our antivirus popups will no longer appear in your screen recordings and streams
• Enhanced exceptions — Exceptions for scans and shields are now easier to add, customize, and maintain
• More installation options — You now have more installation options when activating subscriptions that contain multiple apps
• Family Sharing — Premium Security (Multi-device) users can now share their subscriptions with their family members. Subscriptions can be shared across Windows and Android devices (Mac and iOS to come later)
• We now recognize available (but not activated) products — We’ll no longer show offers for apps that users bought but haven’t yet installed
• We’ve added Detection IDs to Behavior Shield dialogs — Other shields have already had this, but now Behavior Shield also gets a unique ID so our Support and Thread Labs teams can better identify reported threats from screenshots that customers send us
• Added Sandbox and backend analysis parallelization to CyberCapture to minimize interruptions to our users while they interact with suspicious apps
• We’re now applying formatting (time, calendar, etc.) of Windows regional settings in our UI
• Web content opened in the app-cart instead of browser
• Rescue Disks that booted in Windows Preinstall Environment triggered a restart [Win7]
• Sensitive Data Shield was not active after leaving Passive Mode through Settings
• The last file from the multi-selection was omitted
• Manually invoked Passive Mode did not require restart, caused some components (like CyberCapture) to misbehave
• Web Shield samples were not detected after the URL was removed from the exceptions
