Regarding a time-frame for incremental updates, we are working on the infrastructure needed to support this as we speak. I am to have it completed for the next major (i.e. non-bugfix) release of the software, hopefully in a few months.

Ok, Thanks for reply, may I take it as an official comment and quote in my blog?

While it may be an official comment, I don't think we can commit to the version due to the ever changing priorities in code work and unknown issues that arise.
 
This is based purely on previous history of features we want to add and are fully committed to but things tend to get into the way of those best laid plans.

Hi Omid,

Your first quote is almost word for word what I got told when I enquired well over 5 months ago. So looks like those well laid plans have been well and truly stuffed ;D

This is were I though it might have been in version 1.5.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 24.6.6121 (build 24.6.9241.848) UI 1.0.809/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

Well, that quote comes after 1.51, but I've been hearing that even more than one year ago too... (Some of MBAM developers are against that, because they say it's not safe! and will cause many problems!)

It is the small orange a that I did not capture and the green one is HostsMan and the M is MBAM.

Yes, they are certainly dragging their feet on this one contrary to their comments they are working on it. It surely can't be beyond the collective intelligence for the developers to make incremental updates safe, in the same way as avast has, by validating the downloaded packets.
