    KIS/KAV 2012 will mark a new stepping stone in the technological development since 2011. The most important requirement going forward is the product quality. For the first time the QA requirements for the public forum builds have been established. And now the most significant changes coming to version 2012 of the product. To remain competitive on the know-how aspect, only brief description of changes will be posted below:

    -KSN (Kaspersky Security Network) operations are now displayed in the main window of the product, which makes it more transperant for the end users
    -Added reputation checks for suspicious executable files via KSN
    -Templates gathering for the particular program type behaviors, in order to evaluate/calculate KSN reputation values (PBS)
    -Updated intelligent Updater Module, now only active components are updated and resources optimized not to interfear with foreground programs
    -AntiSpam module will no longer require training, KSN will supply the needed information as needed
    -Improved technologies for detecting unknown rootkits, which target themselves to interrupt OS normal boot cycles in order to conceal detection
    -Significant changes to main GUI which now conviniently displays product status: improved KL News Viewer, touch screen support, intrenal task manager, updated gadget design and usability improvements
    -Improved protection from unknown threats via ActiveProcess monitoring subsystem
    -Refactored protection from phishing (Local checks + KSN request, Heuristics scan if URL missing from both) and applicable to web surfing, IM conversations and email
    -Improved URL checking module (Local checks + KSN request), now categories of websites can be restricted based on content
    -Improved product compatibility with other programs and reduced overall system footprint

    Set up a virtual machine and test it to see if you think you are going to like it. Obviously the final will be more stable when it is released but you could get a feel of what the product is going to be like by testing the beta.

    I usually keep an active Kaspersky license by buying it when it is cheap or free after rebate. Usually a good time to do that is when a new version is released and retailers are stuck with boxed copies of last years version. The key is still good for the new version.

    does that mean it may work ok from day 1 after release rather than 6 months and 2 or 3 service packs later?

    Have you turned off Application Verifier and traces, those are enabled by default in beta and make it quite slower.

    Really interesting, it seems that Kaspersky is improving its products, probably will continue to be an excellent product.

    It should be their priority with every new release:-the last two(2010 and 2011)have been dire on release,I got the feeling first few months were just like and extended beta-test!

    Its the same thing every year with Kaspersky - a long list of seemingly cool new feature, a bug-ridden release, lots of complaints, and bug-fix updates galore. Expect no different this time.

    Kaspersky treats its paying customers like Beta-testers :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Hello guys

    This build they are promising to make it a quality release, rather than features. So let's hope it will be the same way

    I'm pretty sure that is just a 2011 skin. Should have really been posted in a new/different thread as the 2012 beta looks nothing like this. It is a nice skin though. :thumb:
