** INTRODUCING: New Official Avast Program Update 5.1.889 **
« on: January 13, 2011, 01:31:04 PM »
Hi guys,

I'm glad to announce the general availability of a new avast program update, version number 5.1.889.

Compared to the previous version, the most notable improvements are:
- solved a compatibility problem with CorelDraw X5
- solved a compatibility problem with Acer control software
- solved a problem inserting a license file via the installation wizard
- solved a compatibility problem with some Dell wireless network adapter drivers
- solved a compatibility problem with Game Guard (used by a number of games)
- solved a compatibility problem with Sibelius
- solved various 0xC0000005 and 0xC000007B errors (e.g. with some .NET applications)
- issues related to upgrades from v5.0 (inactive shields, missing right-click associations, missing 64-bit boot-time scanner etc)
- solved some possible deadlock conditions (relatively rare but possible)
- performance related improvements
- various UI related improvements

As usual, I'd also like to take this opportunity and  thank all our beta-testers.


BTW it takes up to a few days for download.com (and other local download servers) to update their bits. If you want to download the full installer now, use the following direct links:

Free AV: http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/setup_av_free.exe
Pro AV: http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/setup_av_pro.exe
Internet Security: http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/setup_ais.exe


Thanks
Vlk

"- performance related improvements"
I must say that this is actually visible compared to the previous build on my machine. Great release. Keep up the good work and thank you(avast and beta testers).

Updated over ais 5.1.884, so far no problems (as usual).

I'm a (happy) avast antivirus free user for the last 8 years and just upgraded to ais  ;D

Thanks for the great work!

I got 2 BSOD while on .864, and 1 BSOD on .884, currently updating to .889 and hoping for something good... I don't know if my BSODs are AVAST related but I noticed all my recent BSODs happened when it updated to .864 last 1/1/11.

@dmist24: they were not directly related to avast (possible hw problem?), see my answer: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=69199.msg582307#msg582307
