How it updates so frequently.  8)

I'm surprised, we're on 4.5.514 now  :o

Keep in mind that because of their location, Alwil is several hours ahead of the majority of the rest of us -- GMT + 2 or 3 vaguely rings a bell.  And I assume they're talking about something resembling normal work hours their time.

Whatever "normal" is there, of course -- many of us are convinced that Pavel and Vlk probably both work around the clock and take turns catching brief cat-naps.  ;)

Anyway, allowing for time-zone differences, I'd guess that Saturday release from them means that those of us in the Western Hemisphere will see it sometime late Saturday or early Sunday our time.

Technical, you are privileged!
I still am on 4.1.501  --- and this is only Wednesday, after all --- I would say:"Are you sure?", but since you are Technical, I won't say that.

I suspected you were talking about the beta version; I'm glad it is very stable; that means the real thing will also be stable.

Sure. I suggest you go to the new forum board for version 4.5 Beta.
There you will find some good explanations of the new features, etc.
You can read with patience and be ready for it on Saturday...  8)

OK, I was just going to skip reading all that stuff about the problems with the beta version, but since you suggested that I should do it, I will.

I have to tell you I have had a good laugh; the topic subject is misspelled, and every time I write a reply I check my spelling. The spell checker starts with the subject, and every time I change it to "version", but one time I was in a hurry and agreed to change it to what spell checker suggested, which happened to be "venison".

Guess your spell checker knew what it was doing since avast! can be considered a poison for all those viruses. ;D

hello all,
            twice today I have had the avast flag come up to tell me of new update, click to install.
I have tried this on both occasions but failed ( Package Broken.)
Just wondering if this is something to do with installing beta previously as I had a few problems then.
When the release 4.5 version is out can this be downloaded to update the beta version.

                    Mal.
