Any news on version 5, is it now the end of October.
there were further delays a couple of weeks ago, some modules needed further work, even to make beta, and of course further testing.
Shame it had to go to November now, but if it aint ready, what can you do.
but when... I don't know. (don't think they do)
I would say December. Hopefully we'll see a public release version for the new year
no, November is very likely, it's already late.
I think your guess is the most likely.
I hear through the grapevine that Dr. Web Version 5 is supposed to be released around the same time as Duke Nukem Forever.
Big deal that it's taking too long, and even what we recieve won't be everything.
Doesn't matter too much, as I'm happy with 4.44
But it's a big step for the doctor, almost everything new and created in-house, with some more new technology inside.
And with a few alpha builds tried, makes it more exciting to not only see a beta version, even if it is an intermediate release, but also when the full proper version arrives, which I still don't think will include everything immediatly.
So, role on.
Maybe we should start placing bets on it.
I am not a fan of any AV as I don't use any, but these kind of negative comments are useless.
I really don't understand why this thread isn't closed yet........threads have been closed with more important talk than this bull!
Oh well, maybe just me again.
Don't understand the interest from Dr.Web bashers in v 5.
this thread should be renamed to "Drweb Version 5 still not available" and closed, all about it is now like sci-fi
Perhaps closing depends on certain people posting? Usually it's tackled a lot faster by the board of directors.......
maybe because no one has really gone off topic?
im not sure why there is sure a big deal about drweb 5.
sure it will be very good. fast stable and good at detection and cleaning.
but i dont think it will bring anything new to the table.
Not gone off topic? When they start talking about placing bets on a release date of a piece of software.........is in your eyes On Topic?
Perhaps closing depends on:
People pulling a thread off topic
Focusing on the members posting rather than the thread subject, which ultimately becomes a mindless ad hominem argument
The discussion devolving into a meaning back and forth rant with no productive technical content
A mindless "he said/she said"/"it is/it isn't"/etc. volley of one liner junk
and so on....
With respect to this thread, if you don't have new information to add to the discussion, do not feel compelled to post and this lack of activity will cause the thread to drift into oblivion faster than a simple closure ever would.
This shuts me up, doesn't it? Amen.......I'm very disappointed again, but not surprised.
Place your bets folks....on the release date of a piece of software!
All these off topic postsshiuld be deleted, this included, not the thread
... What the helll is wrong with some if you!
I started this thread just to see if anyone had info on version 5,Thats all.If you have no info on version 5 there is no reason to post a reply, End of story.
Today I got a mail.
The minor bug in Dr.Web scan engine reported by me 3 years ago fixed in 188.8.131.5210 version.
nice seems drweb is seruios about releasing V5 then. better waiting awhile and having it work great from day 1.
10310? Updated October 31, then. Which means they are working steadily on the product.
I have a feeling the engine itself is pretty much complete, its the *product* that still needs development. Won't be too long now I guess
It may be related to the release of version 5. I noticed that Dr.Web massively increased the amount of signatures. Sometimes nearly 4000 a day. My thoughts about ithis are that they have perhaps more resources to work on signatures as the main step to version 5 is done or they are intensifying the work on ressources to make version 5 a winner. In both cases version 5 can't be too far away... . Just my thoughts.
The new "v5 website" was opened and signatures added per day averages around hundred or two more than it used to. They also add more signatures during weekends and have more analysts working daily than before.
It's just logical that they try to tune up and optimize everything before their biggest release in the past ... many years. Everything indicates that it's coming.
I can't wait.
With their already good cleaning engine, a better detection will be also welcomed.
