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.
No, it's actually about 1MB larger. Re-download the 1091 installer and you'll see.

No need it was explained that the compression package wasn't applied to the download that I got.

Installed over last stable build..and everything working fine

but why is -when updating from a previous version of avast Pro/IS, SafeZone is now automatically added this option added...i dont want safezone so it should not be automatically installed

and there can be more options added in custom installation

Hi Vlk,

I just installed avast on top of previous version, and from the performance and speed is quite good enough.
But i found that on WebRep function which's previously if we search link from google in example, avast WebRep will displayed in detailed beside each's link.

But on this new version, i don't see avast WebRep graphic (please see attached file)

Oh my goodness... What the hell is AVAST doing? Permanent Beta isn't a good strategy.
After expericing BSOD when updating to 6.0.1901 (FIRST occured in a RC version just before 6.0.1901, the build number of which I can't remember), I've switched to F-secure...

Ziucqea this is not a final release of Avast, release candidate mean beta testing for another words Avast get many users to help test the beta software to report back for bug problem. When all the problem get solved Avast will release as a final version, so try not to get worried because I'm very glad to see more and more users helping Avast for testing the release.

I wouldn't describe the situation as a permanent beta. 6.0.1119 is a Release Candidate, not a release, but I do think that 6.0.1091 should have been an RC rather than an official release.
Ah, the wonder of hindsight.  ::)

That said, I do have AIS 6.0.1091 running sweetly on all but one of my PCs. However I'm sticking with 5.1.889 on my "Xtreme BSOD" machine until I'm well and truly convinced that the issue/conflict is fixed.

You msiunderstood me, I'm talking about 6.0.1091, the latest official released stable version.The BSOD first occured at the RC version just before it.
Btw, do you know what is meant by 'Permanent Beta'?

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.

I would like that too, because my ISP charges me Rs.750 or approx $17 for 2GB data. So it will be very beneficial..
Helpful for those who always want avast in its latest form like me whether beta or RC or pre-release...
We will be thankful...

Thanks
Ash

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?

I thought somebody will explain this...
Well Waiting...
