Now replaced by version 6.0.1086. Please see here for details: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=76349.0


Hi everyone,

we will soon be releasing a new program update of avast. And as usual, we're making it available for public testing a few days before the official release.
Edit: now updated to build 6.0.1044.

This is hopefully going to be a smooth service release, designed really just to fix some of the issues of the original v6.0.1000 build.

Here's the list of the most important changes:
- solved an incompatibility with ZoneAlarm (WinXP)
- improved installation of the WebRep plugins (especially Firefox)
- solved a crash condition in the avast sandbox
- setup programs now smaller by ~20%
- Community features and the Welcome screen can now be turned on/off directly from program settings
- solved an incompatibility with Outpost firewall
- solved a bug related to the AutoSandbox offer (WinXP)
- gadget can now be removed by simply closing it
- new setup icons

New in v6.0.1027:
- attempt to fix new compatibility problems with GameGuard and sXe _rootkits_
- SafeZone improvements
- localization updates (including WebRep)
- improved sandbox logging)
- SafeZone is now a standalone setup package (can be installed/uninstalled separately)

New in v6.0.1035:
- solved Firefox WebRep plugin on non-English Windows
- solved a few incompatibility problems in BehavShield (e.g. TeraCopy)
- improvements in password processing
- improvements in the program uninstaller
- sandbox improvements
- fixed various UI issues introduced in the previous pre-release build

And new in v6.0.1044:
- solved a memory leak in the avast gadget
- solved a few things in WebRep
- autosandbox-related fixes
- WinXP: File System Shield not doing repetitive scans anymore
- improvements in SafeZone isolation
- improvements in the avast! sandbox (better TDL shielding etc)
- localization updates

Download links:

You can either install from scratch, or over an existing installation of avast (any version). Users of the previous pre-release builds (6.0.1021, 6.0.1027, 6.0.1035) can also use the built-in program updater.

Thanks
Vlk

I just updated from version 6.0.1035 Free to version 6.0.1044 Free. The previous version was working well on my Windows 7 (X86) system. The new version installed and appears to be working. Interestingly, Avast did not alert my to the new program update. I set the program to alert me when a new version is available.
