    Please don't ask. When it is ready for Beta testing no doubt we will be informed and it will be made available here on this forum, and I would rather see this tested thoroughly than released early after pressure from the public. What we have works very well, and Eset continue to develop and strengthen this fantastic product. Let's give them some breathing space to get it right...

    Cheers

    NOD32 is not the only software I am awaiting a release for - I'd rather the developers got it right than rushed a release. You need to have a little patience - as does anyone when it comes to software releases...

    just my 2c...

    Personally, I do expect a module update within a week - and a new version in about 2 or 3 months from now ;)

    regards,

    LOL - I've been "expecting" a release on another tool for more than a month now... expectations are often not met... ;)

    It will certainly take a bit more than one week. Just a few features we still need to work on: cache in AMON, automatic movement of files detected by AH to quarantine, statistics submission (voluntary), etc.

    Is this a Module Update or a version update?

    What is the difference between the 2?

    That is nevertheless a clear statement.

    But I am not really sure if I understood everything correctly.
    Will it thus give 2 updates? A module update and afterwards a version update? Or does everything come together?

    Fact is: NOD 32 is the best virus software, which I had ever use.

    A module update soon. A new version later in the year.

    The reason I said not to ask is, an Eset Mod usually gives an indication, then if something unforseen happens and the approximate date passes, he is then inundated with when and why questions... if you build it they will come, if you promise it they will hound you ;) :D

    Cheers :D

    NOD32 is one of the most trouble-free pieces of software that I own. It just works.

    The new features sound like "nice to haves", but I can live without them for a few months.
    The important thing is that they take their time and "get it right", rather than rush release a buggy product.

    I recently persuaded my employers to ditch Norton AV for NOD (client on all PCs + Remote Admin) and they are very happy with the current features.
    The only problem that they had with the current version was on Windows Server 2003, but that was cured by disabling IMON.

    It's just a shame that most people don't know about NOD.

    Which Magazine (the magazine of the Consumers' Association here in the UK) recently did a review of AV programs.

    All of the "usual suspects" were there (Norton, McAfee, ZoneAlarm etc.) but NOD did not even get a mention.

    Keep up the good work Eset!
