** 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

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

It's normal after upgrade at 5.1 which until you restart the pc the Mail Shield and the Web Shield are inactive? In the setup.log file I found this:
