Hi all,

I'm glad to announce the general availability of a new avast program update, version 6.0.1091.

Here's a list of most important changes:
- solved a compatibility problem with ZoneAlarm (WinXP)
- added WebRep Chrome extension
- improved installation of the WebRep plugins (especially Firefox)
- various fixes and improvements 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 a compatibility problem with Outpost firewall
- solved a bug related to the AutoSandbox offer (WinXP)
- gadget can now be removed by simply closing it
- solved a compatibility problem with GameGuard and sXe
- SafeZone improvements
- improved sandbox logging
- SafeZone is now a standalone setup package (can be installed/uninstalled separately)
- improvements in password processing
- improvements in the program uninstaller
- solved a memory leak in the avast gadget
- fixes in the File System Shield transient cache
- various stability/compatibility improvements


Many thanks to everyone who helped testing.

Or, you can use the in-product "program update" feature (this applies to all v5.x and 6.0 users, including those who are running any of the previous betas).

Note: If you have any problems with this new version, please do NOT post to this thread; start a new topic instead. Ideally one topic per issue.

Thanks
Vlk

Official?! Not Pre-Relase?! You mean this is the very new stable release, or what?!

Thanks!

Thanks Vlk updating from 6.0.1086 UI.

Edit: Update from UI and reboot went fine on both my systems, XP Pro SP3 and win7 x86.

Is this official official? As in not beta? Is it best to uninstall our current versions or is it fine just to use the internal updater?

It is official (as in "not beta"), and it should be safe to use the in-product updater.

- setup programs now smaller by ~20%
<snip>

The actual setup of avast free has 63.2 MB.
The setup of avast! free version 6.0.1000 has 55 MB.

Did it reduce something after all?

The virus database, contained in the setup package, grows continuously, as new detections are added - so if a new 6.0.1000 package was generated now, it would be bigger (besides, there are probably some additions to the program - there are new voiceovers in one or two languages, if we're talking about multi-language setup).

1st look everything seems works well. I didn't have any WMP issue at all, but checked and nice Blue as ever. :) (Windows 7 x64 Ultimate SP1 + WU)

WebRep in Fox4 also working OK. Nothing bug with Google.

Really thanks your job! Grat!

Thanks for the explanation, igor.

Rebooted and all seems fine. WebRep for Chrome is doing great so far.

No problems yet.

Thanks avast! team and beta testers.
