New *release* build of avast now available (5.0.677)
« on: September 07, 2010, 09:48:16 PM »
Hi,

it's my pleasure to announce the general availability of a new avast program update, version 5.0.677.
You can simply update to this new version by using the built-in program updater.

Change log is here: http://www.avast.com/release-history

Thanks
Vlk

Thanks Vlk, updating now which shouldn't be as painful downloading the full program on dial-up.

Program update finished only 3 minutes on dial-up great, just need to reboot now.

Until you mentioned it I hadn't noticed it, so that is how intrusive it is (NOT).

Even so it is a small inconvenience for the free product version, its not like its an in your face advert, etc. etc.

You don't need one if you have avast 5.0.594 already installed, just use the manual Program Update in the avastUI.

The download links are always the same (always host the latest version).

E.g. in case of the Free AV, it's here: http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download#tab4 (I mean the list of individual language versions -- may be below the fold so you may need to scroll down little bit).

Thanks

Use the "multi-lingual" package, that's a direct download from our site.
For avast Pro AV, it's here: http://www.avast.com/pro-antivirus#tab4

Pleased to report that (after a firewall component uninstall and reinstall) the long filename/short filename problem appears resolved in 5.0.677. Starts via both filename versions of an application (I tried on wksss.exe) are now blocked from outbound connection by the same rule.

Thanks
