ESET reckon the beta/final will be released near the end of this year.
Re: v3 delayed again?
Realistically, Steve Gibson is to security like a house brick is to a pine tree in a forest. Totally unrelated. Steve's a *great* tabloid journalist, don't get me wrong. Tabloid journalist.
His SpinRite application is quite good, and way back when it was relevant, his ASPI layer drivers were the bees knees. But Steve's nothing if not an embarassment to the security industry.
Well, I am interest the new version 3, I ask question about "Anti-SPAM".... These new version 3 have a "Friendly/Blackmail lists like Email address command.
Example of Friendly
*@goodcompany.co.nz <- All username is would be good list
*.gen.nz <- Any Domain of General prefix
MrsBunny@hotmail.com <- Good person if ISP's stamp "SPAM" was mistake
Example of Blackmail
*.ru <- All domain & Prefix in Russia
BadGuy@* <- all times same user and different domain address
Do NOD32 v3.0 have like these above ?
We are still far from v3 of ESET/NOD32 products . Let's first expect version 2.7
As for v3 , no details are known by the public , the one who knows something will not say at all . As Aryeh (from ESET) has mentioned , when it is ready , it will be said , we will then know details
The one who knows something will not directly say anything but rather will keep giving sporadic hints.
I heard a few rumours from the grapevine but have not confirmed the truth of it. For that reason, it is best to not mention it.
Now, version 2.7 is a strange thing and I have heard next to nothing about it. Since 2.7 leans closer to 2.5 than 3.0, I assume its an optimized version of NOD32 2.5 with minor feature enhancements and Windows Vista support. Of course, assumptions mean nothing anyway.
I am running Win_98SE.
For me to upgrade to a Win_XP, I would have to buy a new computer.
I cannot due to financial constraints.
Therefore I must continue to use Win_98SE for a while longer.
I know that "No details are known for sure about the release of version 3", (quoted from Blackspear), but I would think that by now ESET must know what OS they will continue to support with any new version and which OS they will stop supporting.
My Trial Version of NOD32 (2.51.30) is about to expire.
However, I will only buy NOD32 V2.51, if I know that the new version will
Any thoughts, hints, suggestions...
(I apologise if this post is in the wrong place.)
Either way Victor, if you are happy with v2.5 and the coming v2.7, then I would suggest that these versions will continue for sometime before Eset discontinue support; as was the case with upgrading from v1.0 to v2.0, it was well over a year before support for v1.0 finally ceased, in fact I believe it was over 2 years. So you could happily use the current version for quite sometime, until at least you can afford a new PC and operating system which by that stage will likely be Vista.
Blackspear: Thank you very much for the information. That's exactly the kind of info I was looking for. Also, excellent suggestion.

OK.....When is it release ? I thought v3 was release....But delay. What you think say next month or end of year will be release v3 ? Tell us let know !
Hi WizardMaster, as previously discussed, know one knows, it will be announced here when it is released.
I can only offer thoughts im afraid.
Win 98 is EOL and is no longer supported by Microsoft. I for one would not be suprised if Win98 support was dropped by Eset.
So is the built in firewall going to be completely in house or are they going to use the code from some other firewall?
