    1-2 months after version 8 of EAM was released. Also Fabian said it is in internal testing now.

    Well, at least according to the change list there will be no big/important/notable changes, at least not for me. :D

    There are pretty large changes actually. Asynchronous connection handling for example.

    Just to be sure, there is no plan in joining OA with EAM into a single program, right? Thank you.

    I believe that OA will continue to be offered as a separate entity for those who do not require the security pack or future security suite.

    I hope so. Otherwise I'm going to have a hard time to find a perfect replacement. :doubt:

    Perfect replacement would be the coming EIS, no? :D

    I don't want an AV, although I can just disable it but... man, 200MB is just too huge. OA standalone is only ~30MB.

    In theory, yes, but though I have a license, EAM since version 8 has been problematic on my system. So, having the option of just using OA, for those of us in such a situation, may be the best alternative.

    There are also other details regarding the behavior blocker and/or HIPS modules for the future projects which are (as yet) to be ironed out.

    I was more thinking that you get "the best of both worlds" so to speak, but I understand why you don't want to, sure.

    Yeah sure, I didn't mean that they should ditch the standalone OA as many like it very much, to use with an AV of their choice etc etc...:thumb:

    If the new version has any noticeable improvements in the malware-blocking department, I may start using it again with AppGuard.

    Anyone know if the new version fixes the white-listing (or rather not white-listing) issue with Microsoft signed files some (including me) are getting on win 8 x 64? Turned a reasonably quiet HIPS into a bit of a pop-up fest for the first few hours of use. I'm sure they said it would be resolved in the next build but when its 6 months between releases it can seem a long time.

    Also will it bring the native x64 architecture originally proposed for version 6?

    Thanks

    Yes, it has been fixed. I can send you a link to a private beta if you want to test it :).

    No.

    will we see OA on matousec again?
    there was a problem between tallemu and matousec, then they removed OA from matousec list about 3 years ago.
