*** NEW PRE-RELEASE UPDATE 5.1.884 NOW AVAILABLE ***
« on: January 10, 2011, 02:32:51 PM »
This beta has now been replaced by a new official update, version number 5.1.889.
More info here: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=69305.new#new

Thanks to everyone who helped testing.



Hi *,

we have just released a new pre-released build of avast, version number 5.1.884. This build is supposed to solve the remaining issues that were not fixed by the previous pre-release version 5.1.874.

We expect this to be a very short beta test before the update is finally pushed out to everyone (maybe less than 24 hours).

So, if you're having any kind of issues with the current release build 5.1.864 or 5.1.874, we recommend trying this one -- hopefully, it will solve your problem.

Fixes, compared to the previous pre-release build 5.1.874, include:
- solved a compatibility problem with CorelDraw X5
- solved a problem inserting a license file in the installation wizard

Your feedback is appreciated.

Hopefully this will fix the issue I've been having with the Behavior Shield crashing my game.

Ho-chi-minh: All BETAs are updated to final public version automatically when it's available. You will be also notified by GUI there's a new final version so you won't miss it.

no it's not that but I started a thread recently where I mentioned several issues, including Windows firewall becoming unable to remain turned on (was turning off after each reboot) + "homegroup" being partially broken and no way to repair it. I had to re-install Windows (as my latest backup had the same issues). Can't tell if the behavior shield was responsible at all, but such things never happen with 5.0.

 edit:to be honest I also gave a shot to two other security suites (just short tests) so I have no idea what made shit happen, if it's Avast or not. AIS firewall being turned on and homegroup computers being still accessible through the network folder, it took a few days until I realized that things were broken.

这更新频率很快呀!希望今年能出6.0版本而且有质的提升,因为目前AVAST还只是单凭特征码的防护,希望把行为防护和启发水平提高一下。
感谢你们的辛苦工作!
祝论坛上各位,来自不同国家的朋友们,万事如意!

seems okay so far, and yes, the license insertion issue with all shields off following the first reboot after installing is fixed.
