Ricky,

Truthfully, 4.7 is somewhere down the road but I am not exactly sure where.  I have not heard much about how many builds are to be planned after 4.6.623.  Right now, some bugs are being worked out with the Web Shield.  This was a MAJOR improvement over the older 4.6 version.

The best place to go for any new information on future developments is here:
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=12.0

I am sure that the Avast team is working very hard on the next release.  They take their time and never "jump the gun".   :D

What I would advise is to set your Avast to update Program automatically.

When the next version is in Final release......your system will update to it.

Never need to worry with Avast! :)

Actually there won't be any 4.7. Next planned version is 5.0. Not official,but word came from Alwil. They also mentioned heavy improvements in detection.

I think avast! has a lot of features that ahead other antivirus software so now it's probably the time to concentrate at heavy improvements in detection. Actually, avast! now has a good overall detection rates (90%+) but that seem to doesn't matter when compared to overall response time so some kind of proactive detections are very facinating to avast!.

I hate to see that the potential customers simply underrate avast! because of it lacks so-called heuristics. ;D
