[Resolved] Which version is out now?
« on: January 02, 2011, 03:33:44 AM »
I am not posting just to post. I'm just confused as to what's what. Which version will be available on cnet.com? I ask because there will people just waiting to degrade the efficacy of what avast releases. And some will do anything and everything to find fault with 5.1. I do hope all the bugs will be fixed before "final" release. If not it will look like avast "rushed" beta testing before the final release. A word to the wise...If not sure hold off the final release. Take a look at AVG 2011 Free they are constantly coming out with an endless stream of fixes. So please get it right before the critics have their go at it.

The Public release version is 5.1.864 as per VlK upon release yesterday.

I'm glad to announce the general availability of avast 5.1. After almost a month-long beta testing marathon (and 3 beta refreshes just in the last 24 hours), I sincerely hope this new version will serve you well. Even though avast 6.0, equipped with even more features, is coming relatively soon, v5.1 is still a very important update for us. Most of the new good stuff is hidden under the hood.

I'm not sure how long it takes download sites like Cnet to update, but I'll bet not very long. ;)

Programs will always have bugs. Let's hope avast will have as few as possible. Running AIS 5.1.864 here and it's running great(at least for now).
