    Will point releases for the AVG 7.5 program itself be pushed out automatically via Live Update? For example, will the bug fix for the auto-update problem be issued shortly via Live Update or will we have to wait for an official announced release to download and install it manually?

    I received this emailtoday:

    Dear AVG user,

    Grisoft is announcing the release of a new line of products - AVG 7.5.
    The migration of current users of AVG to AVG 7.5 will be performed
    by Optional update. This update is marked "Optional" and will
    be presented as a choice to the customer in the first half of the week
    beginning of October 9th, 2006.

    In order to correctly initialize the new AVG functions, this update
    might require computer restart!

    List of AVG Anti-Virus 7.5 enhancements

    * Improved virus detection based on better heuristics and NTFS data
    streams scanning
    * Smaller installation and update files
    * Improved installation for 64-bit Windows systems
    * Language selection ability during installation
    * User interface enhancements
    * New feature "Security status" added to control the AVG status with:
    o Green color - all AVG components are fully functional
    o Red Color - some of the components is in an error state
    o Yellow color - some of the components is in an error state, but
    the users opted manually,that such state should be ignored


    Users of remote administration AVG Admin who will not immediatelly migrate
    to new AVG 7.5 version should set their AVG TCP Server in menu
    "InetLite - Type of update" to "Recommended update" or
    simply "Priority update."

    In the AVG 7.5 we also release new version of remote administration
    AVG Admin. In case of the switch to AVG 7.5 we do recommend to migrate
    to new AVG Admin that includes central ability to install, manage
    and monitor the additional AVG components.

    Some of the new features include:

    * Graphical reports - give AVG users the ability to quickly and easily
    create well organized reports. Reports can display list of all stations
    protected by AVG Admin, most infected stations, most common security
    attacks and similar statistics.
    * Support for configuration of Anti-Spam component - users can modify
    the settings of the Anti-Spam component of individual stations directly
    and centrally from the AVG Admin environment
    * Support for configuration of Anti-Spyware component - in the AVG Admin
    environment, users can activate or deactivate the Anti-Spyware component.
    The test results for the anti-spyware are then displayed separately from
    virus results.
    * Detection of new AVG Admin program - AVG now after start automatically
    checks for a new version of remote administration AVG Admin
    * Transfers of Firewall protocols to AVG DataCenter - users with active
    Firewall component on their stations have the option to set rules
    (for applications/services) directly in the AVG Admin environment.
    AVG makes it easy to transfer the Firewall protocol from any station
    onto the AVG TCP Server.
    * Improved product information - AVG Admin environment was optimized
    to easily distinguish new AVG products by adding more detailed information
    (for instance new installed languages, components etc.)

    We believe that all the new AVG products and improvements will be of great
    asset to your organization and we are prepared to answer any and all
    questions you might have regarding the new AVG additions.
    Please feel free to contact our Sales department.

    Hmm... I'm interested only in AVG 7.5 Anti-Spyware, not the anti-virus component.

    As for your question, yes at least when it was not owned by Grisoft smaller fixes etc was pushed out via the updater.:)
