** NEW AVAST PROGRAM UPDATE RELEASE CANDIDATE 6.0.1119 **
« on: May 06, 2011, 06:31:32 PM »
The update has now been officially released as version 6.0.1125.
See http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=77801.0 for details.
Thanks to everyone who helped testing the pre-release builds.




Hi,

we will soon be releasing another service release of avast Free/Pro/IS. Before we make it official, we're making it available here on the forum for anyone to test.

How to get it
links removed

How to install it
Just run the setup executable (links above). You can either install it from scratch, or on top of an existing avast installation (installing over both 5.0.xxx or 4.8.yyy should be fine). A reboot will be required to complete the installation.


What's new
Most notable improvements include:
- solved a problem in aswSP.sys that could lead to a system crash
- improved tolerance for corrupted installations
- when updating from a previous version of avast Pro/IS, SafeZone is now automatically added
- fixes in Chrome WebRep plugin
- Behavior Shield: improved compatibility with other applications
- improvements in the CommunityIQ submission system


Thanks much
Vlk

has avast ever considered adding an option into the avast settings to "update to beta/RC versions"? these pre-release versions come out and i think it would be convenient to have an option in the settings for users that like to test pre-release versions to be auto updated like regular program updates. some other AV's have this option like Emsisoft, ESET and such.

Updated from 1091 with the downloaded AIS.  Looks good so far, even with my "AIS/FW not installed, OA instead" configuration.  :)

Installed from scratch. I had not selected to install P2P shield, but it was installed - I remember reporting this once, in one of the previous betas. Everything else is fine.

Just updated over the top of 6.0.1091 and appears to be fine.

Seems there has been some compression to the setup_av_free.exe at 54.2MB much smaller than the 6.0.1091 installation file.

Surprise!

- improved tolerance for corrupted installations
What does it mean?

- when updating from a previous version of avast Pro/IS, SafeZone is now automatically added
Thanks.

- Behavior Shield: improved compatibility with other applications
Such which? I mean, is it the compatibility with other behavior scanners (Threatfire, for instance)?

- improvements in the CommunityIQ submission system
Can you elaborate?

Thanks nonetheless :)

Will this release fix the problems with the following:
  Characters overlaid in Google My Account when using Firefox 3.6.x or Google Chrome Browsers (only started after installing Avast Pro).
  After going into SafeZone, it dims the monitor, but when you exit, it remains dimmed and you must restart the computer for it to go back to the normal monitor settings.

Please let me know.

Can you post the contents of the file C:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\Log\AutoSandbox.log?

Yes it should fix this problem.

Updated over .1019 without any problem.

On the first glance system works flawlessly as advertised.
Either there are no problems or I don't see them!

Everything smooth - except, as expected, this WebRep thingie.
Still the voting window remains open for at least 10 sec before closing itself after clicking on "vote"... with 10 sec being the lower end of the range. Average about 12 to 15 sec.  :(
