    "Hi everybody!

    DefenseWall 3.18 beta version is ready for your tests.

    www.softsphere.com/files/DefenseWall_Personal_Firewall_v3_18.exe

    What's new:

    1. Everything that running on a computer is signed with digital signature, including the installation file.

    2. Found and solved an issue with copy control functionality. Now it puts untrusted attribute correct way.

    3. Found and solved an issue with Windows events were triggering once per two seconds.

    4. Found and solved an issue with inability to start WMP initialization in trusted zone for Windows 8.

    5. Whitelisting enhanced.

    And did I mention installation file is signed? :)"

    Sorry jmonge I believe it is 32-bit. I think Ilya would have made a major announcement otherwise.

    It is why I stay 32-bit. After being a user for the past 3 years I can't imagine being without it.

    It's not a big deal. I've been using my x64 PC's for 3 years now and I have yet to be infested. If anything the only thing the lack of x64 for this software is doing is saving me money since I like it when I installed briefly in my old XP desktop.

    Is this build compatible with Windows 8 Customer Preview?

    I'm trying Win 8 on one spare PC and, having DW installed would be nice security addition.

    Yes, this was one of the point to check.

    Sorry but I am having a hard time interpreting this quote. Does it mean DW is now digitally signed? Or does it mean DW now allows anything with a digital signature to run on a computer? Or both?

    thanks

    No one would mind tinkering all night with an x64 Cersei edition, I guess.
    Although some probably prefer a Kaleesi version.
