Avast! Antivirus 2014 R4 Beta (9.0.2019) (free/pro/premium/internet security) changelog:
- We've improved the security of the product - e.g we handle the conditions for the Guest account better, we are very senstitive for any incorrect inputs from the user with a negative impact on the system's security, or, we tuned the import settings functionality not to allow bypassing any protections
- We've added "resume" support in the setup component, so some of you should notice smoother downloading - depends on a "quality" of your connection (mainly during the program update where the amount of data is quite big)
- We've included a new antispam library (IS/Premier editions) for better accuracy of our anti-spam module
- We've put warnings during the installation process if there could be some obvious problems resulting in not 100% functionality after the installation (missing admin rights, insufficient space on disk, etc.)
- We've added ability to disable promotion popups (in PRO/IS/Premier editions). We strongly believe that our additional products can be valuable for you, but we also respect your will not to be bothered by such offers.
- We've performed a static analysis of our code resulting in many fixes (but don't worry, nothing was critical, just a small tuning :-)
- General bugfixing - this covers a lot of stability & performance changes in all components (but the main focus was traditionally on the network & engine components)
