    Why can't beta testing start with version 5 already?

    Promises, promises......that's all we have. It has been years since the last major upgrade to Dr Web. Sure they try and appease the loyal with minor updates, but nothing revolutionary. Developement is too slow with Dr Web.

    Re: Dr Web Spider Gate

    you already forgot 4.44?

    advanced rootkit detection and removal, new GUI, and new heuristics, aswell as improvements under the hood.

    i wouldnt call that years, however.. i do agree that drweb are 'way to slow' on program upgrades.

    Re: Dr Web Spider Gate

    You are somewhat correct, 4.44 was a important update. However, I don't think the GUI was entirely new; it was just tweaked a little. Everything, with the exception of RK detection, was just tweaked in 4.44. I'm waiting for the promised complete rewrite.

    no,

    .origin tracing was not tweaked from a previous version.

    it took over 12 months to develop.

    ----------
    it doesnt need a complete rewrite, that is just stupid.

    there will be a new scanner in V5, and a new 'fresh GUI' aswell as too many features to mention.

    Re: Dr Web Spider Gate

    Those are the two things I was refering to when I said "rewrite." So, we agree there. Also, and this make be OT, but is RK detection available in CureIt? I recently worked on an infected system that CureIt was not abe to cire. Actually, only VBA32 beta was able to fix the RK part of the infection.

    Re: Dr Web Spider Gate

    and who promised you a complete re-write?

    features from previous versions will still exist in V5.

    nope.

    @ computer geek

    they dont give out dates, or even timezones anymore. :(

    but if we just take a guess at March/April, would that ease your mind? *lol*

    last year, i would hoping for a January/February Beta release, but i think its getting pushed back a few months for the beta release of 64bit drweb.

    but you never know, they could surprise us and release the beta tomorrow. :thumb:

    im interested in their self protection, http scanner and a 'proper' quarantine, and of course a brand new 'flashy' GUI :)

    but there really are too many features to list, (and those are only what i know of....)

    we will just have to wait :(

    and lets hope its not a flop like nod32 3.0

    its only been in development for 2+ years........ :rolleyes:

    not only that, when i buy a 2/3/4/5 year licence or whatever for ANY company, i want to know about what it will be like in that time, there is no point buying a massive licence like that, if the product is going nowhere or will be rubbish in the years to come.

    also, i can already find out and use such products like AVG 8, KAV 8 etc etc, without really trying, at least these companys give their customers some 'piece of mind' about what is coming.

    not only that, but those products are already in betas, and have been developed for a WAYYYYYY less time.

    by the time drweb release their v5, i believe it will probably be outdated and we will have to wait another year or 2 to try and catch up, but even then..... everyone else would have released another 3 versions.

    i dont need them pissing me off, when i have plenty of F-secure licences and 4 years of AVG to play around with, not even counting on my prevx licences.

    *they need to show a little respect to their customers who pay good dollar, and not only that.... but free marketing and advertising :D

    jackass.

    can we switch this back to beta 5 now, and how poo they are about giving out any information to their customers, giving rude replys on questions for V5 and basically.. this is the slowest program update in the history of all programs. :D

    if time keeps going on.... Microsoft would have developed Vista in a shorter amount of time than drweb for v5. :thumbd:

    The update from F-Prot 3 to FPAV6 would give the Dr Web transition a good run for its money :blink:

    I'm afraid, as I have stated many times before, the small vendors cannot push out MAJOR upgrades as quickly as the bigger companies such as Kaspersky.

    tbh what is really wrong with drweb 4.44?
    engine is decent,updates are fast and i havent found any bugs in the short time i trialed it. also its light on the system.
    i think drweb should definatly keep the manual editing via the .ini file very useful for techs.
    the main thing missing is a http scanner. but its in development.
    the ondemand scanner maybe be slow but so are others.
    unlike most companies they arent rushing buggy software out the door. give them a break.

    Not an excuse. Just reality.

    The small vendors are working flat out simply to keep up with the ever increasing malware and to provide a stable version for Vista ( some of the smaller companies still have not released a gold Vista version). They simply have not got the manpower to push out a new upgrade every year like some of their bigger brethren.

    As with FPAV6, Dr Web 5 will appear when they are ready to release it; other than this is mere speculation. Dr Web users not happy with the present progress should simply switch to another AV.
