NEW OFFICIAL Program Update Now Available [5.0.594]
« on: June 29, 2010, 12:38:53 AM »
Hi all,

it's my pleasure to announce the general availability of a new avast program update, version number 5.0.594.

Here's the list of most important changes:
- 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 code feature
- solved a problem when avast was progressively 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

 
Users of any previous version of avast 5.x can go to this build by simply invoking the program update feature from within the program UI.
Please allow ~24 hours for download.com (our main distribution partner in English speaking countries) to update their servers with this new version.


Thanks
Vlk

Thanks. Suppose the new language files are incorporated in the release as Igor received them last week.

Not removed, just unofficial at the moment as the translation is incomplete.
