The update has now been officially released as v6.0.1203.
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=81028.0
Thanks to everyone who helped testing.


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. The version number is Edit June 30: 6.0.1198.

This is hopefully going to be a smooth service release, designed really just to fix some of the issues of the previous v6.0 builds.

Here's the list of the most important changes:
- improved compatibility with Windows Vista SP0/SP1
- attempt to solve the "Windows Media Player using a red skin" problem
- Firewall: improved compatibility with uTorrent
- improved the sample submission process
- introduced new CreditAlert feature (US customers only)
- improved load time of WebRep IE plugin
- improvements in the silent installer
- improvements in the sandbox module
- added Thai and Serbian language packs

And new in 6.0.1198:
- Firewall: the long-standing uTorrent compatibility problem should now be finally resolved
- improved tracking of file sources
- improvements in the installer
- fixes of bugs reported in the previous beta


Download links:
links snipped

You can either install from scratch, or over an existing installation of avast (any version). Users of the previous pre-release build (6.0.1184) can also use the built-in program updater. (no need to download the full package from the above links).

Thanks
Vlk

Hello,

installed and running fine so far. Is the imrovement in the Sandbox also related to AutoSandbox (sensitivity)?

Furthermore I wasn't able to install the German language to this pre-release version using the UI. Is it a known issue with pre-releases?

Release Notes translated to German language here.

As with the previous program update, I'll wait for the program update tray notification to be displayed before I apply it. I hope some frequent forum users can test their tray notifications too, instead of manually applying the update using the main GUI as usual.

Why is it working in 32bits systems. I don't think so...

According to the info we got last February, the CreditAlert feature is one of the new Partner Poducts.
But I have no idea who the Partner here is :-\

Have to say...I'm not liking the change to the alerts...

Where has the Process field gone?

That massive button...that sends people to that pushy (imo) page...


And it is wider than it needs to be.
