Beta Verison
« on: November 10, 2004, 01:34:18 PM »
I have a question, when the new Beta version comes out on Saturday the 13th, will Avast automatically install it.
If it is not Auto installed, what should we do to get it, i have been using Avast now for almost a year and have to say i love it.

The beta version already is out since 23 october.
Saterday is the day that Avast 4.5 final is sheduled for release.

And yes, update will automaticly take place.

It depends on your settings. If you have "Auto" for program updates, it will. Otherwise, just go to the program menu (or use the popup menu from the avast! tray icon) and select Updating -> Program Update.

I presume the Advise-when-available option (my setting for program updates, and I think still the default for them) will still do its thing properly?

If you're using 4.1, sure it will  8)

Will our settings be saved or will we have to re-configure everything?

As far as I know, the release of 4.5 final is still sheduled for Saterday and it will be on their website. 4.5 beta was only released to the users of this forum, that's why there is nothing on their website about it.

So, Sunday will be for sure  8)

Well, Guys ---
I hope it will be Saturday; I have already put it on a forum since someone asked about Avast! When they do that, I always tell them how good it is, how it always catches the repeated virus attack attempts in emails and how it updates so frequently.  8)
