Any news about 5.1
« on: December 02, 2010, 10:32:22 AM »
Hello,

I know that some people have already asked about the release of Avast 5.1 (3 or four times).
And that each time, the answer was to continue to read regularly this forum to get this information.
But also, I know that it was planned to get news about 5.1 at the end/during November.
Is-it possible to have an 'official' answer this time? Will it be delayed? Postponed to next year? Or soon.

Thanks :)

you mean 3 - 4 hundred times  ;D

when the news about avast 5 came out, there was 50 questions a day about when it would be released
when beta testing started, there was lots of   " it is working, release it now "   post`s
when it was released, that changed to   " the program is full of bug`s, you released it to early "   post`s


So the short answer is, it will be released when ready  ;)

I am asking for an 'official' answer. Not the same answer that I could read a lot of time previously.

Pondus' answer is about as 'official' as an answer you will get.  ;)

Tech Told Me

GUI changes aren't the major improvement. I haven't seen any screenshot yet, but I have already translated version 5.1. Just to say one new feature: you'll be able to control the timeout of the popups (info, updates, etc.)

You as as unlikely to get an official answer as the other hundreds of such requests haven't. Where any sort of official answer has been given a firm date has never been given. Even if a date were given, the last thing avast will do is release it simply because an artificial date was given.

It will be released when it is ready and that hasn't changed and it doesn't matter who is saying it. The fact that you are most likely to hear about it on the forums first also hasn't changed either.

So I guess you don't want me to answer either as it doesn't tell you what you want to hear, avast 5.1 will be released on the 25 December 2010, Merry Christmas.

atleast beta version should release...i love beta testing  :P

I would never use a beta version of an AV or IS program in a production environment.

Good thing the plan is for users to have the option of doing so.

5.0 works great for me.

I will wait patiently for 5.1 to be released hopefully after a few betas and at least one RC.

Unless the Avast folks have changed the plan, I read a few weeks back that there 'will not' be a beta version...
Just the release version..."when it is ready" :)
