Avast AV 2015 R4 Beta2/3 [10.4.2228/2229]

Changelog/Fixes:
Today we unusually released 2 beta versions in order to test a new mechanism that will allow to avoid some compatibility issues in the future. For this beta testing we set the rule that machines with Windows XP will be able to update only to version 2228, all other machines will update as usual to the latest version 2229.
So please test if you machines on XP are on version 2228 and Vista+ on 2229 and both reporting as latest version. Don't worry we will remove the limitation for Windows XP machines in the next beta version, and we also won't limit XP users in the future. This is just for testing purposes.

Avast AV 2016 Beta1 [11.1.2234]

Changelog/Fixes:
• NEW: Passwords - Avast can now manage your passwords and generate strong passwords for you. Just one password to remember.
   - checks your passwords security
   - stores your passwords securely
   - includes browser extensions for easier logging in and form filling
   - generates strong passwords
• NEW: SafeZone browser - Replaced the SafeZone for safer shopping and banking
   - Pay Mode: runs automatically on banking sites (This isolates the session and protects it from possible keyloggers or other malicious software secretly lurking on your computer. With Pay Mode you can perform all your financial transactions in peace, without fear of your password or other personal details being stolen. Pay Mode can be also turned on manually directly via browser UI.)
   - Ad Blocker: The browser comes with built-in Ad Blocker that blocks all those annoying online ads and banners
   - Video Downloader: Another cool feature is built-in Video Downloader that allows you to download online videos and store them to your hard drive. Now we support just limited amount of sites (youtube, vimeo, stream, metacafe, yahoo and some others)
   - HTTPS scanning while preserving the original certificate
• NEW: User interface - More space for content, easy control
• NEW: Feedback possible directly from program - report bugs, feature requests and other suggestions easier
• IMPROVED: Home network security now detects more router vulnerabilites and shows more details
• IMPROVED: Installation - it should be now faster and less obtrusive.
• Many other minor tweaks and fixes

Known issues:
- Unable to log in to Avast Account through Cleanup
- Missing content for Network issues in Smart Scan
- Browser extension Avast Online Security is not being installed in Firefox
- Passwords extension in IE doesn't work correctly
- Loosing the first device that starts using Passwords might cause blocking of Avast Account (only if synchronization is enabled, by default turned off)
- “Shielded Window” mode in SafeZone browser doesn't work yet
- Web Reputation, Do-Not-Track and Safe Price features are not functional in SafeZone browser
- Ad blocker sometimes needs restart of the SafeZone browser to start working (occurs only once)
- Avast Passwords doesn't work in SafeZone browser yet
- It is impossible to deactivate the Pay Mode for sites which are automatically switched in to this mode

Avast AV 2016 Beta3 [11.1.2236]

Changelog/Fixes:
- Possibility to log in more Avast accounts
- Online security plugin for Firefox is now signed and works in Firefox 42
- Online setup - better recovery if reboot appears during installation
- Passwords extension now works in SafeZone browser
- WebShield HTTPS Scanning: We introduced a new method of HTTPs scanning. It is used in Firefox, Chrome and Opera. It works without changing the certificates with the help of kernel mode hooking. The security parameters and certificates are verified by the browser itself, including checks for untrusted or revoked certificates. Traditional MITM approach is still used for IE and Edge, and is also reactivated when required for particular browser. You can check the functionality of HTTPS scanning by checking Statistics window in Avast UI or by visiting http://www.eicar.org/85-0-Download.html.

Known issues:
- Passwords extension in IE doesn't work correctly
- Loosing the first device that starts using Passwords might cause blocking of Avast Account (only if synchronization is enabled, by default turned off)
