    I was just looking at some of the past threads and came across the one about tds4, and as u can see by the date it is nearly [2 years ago] and we are still waiting for this great programme to be released.

    - [Stand by ... TDS4 is coming]

    >>> TDS v3.2.1 UPDATE RELEASED <<<
    Build 3.2.1 of TDS-3 has been released and can be downloaded at http://tds.diamondcs.com.au
    Like all others before it, this is a free update. However, it is expected that this will be the final update for TDS-3! TDS4 is on the horizon, and licensed TDS-3 users will all be rewarded with a FREE upgrade to TDS-4 Professional.

    >>> STAND BY ... TDS4 IS COMING <<<
    For the last year we've been working on components for our fourth generation of anti-trojan systems, building on over half a decade of dedicated full-time anti-trojan experience.

    Over the coming months we'll be rolling out several programs which collectively form Trojan Defence Suite v4. TDS3 Professional will be superseded by TDS4 Professional (which all TDS3 users will be upgraded to, free of charge). However, unlike TDS3 which caters for experienced users, professionals and security researchers, TDS4 has several programs which cater for everyone from the most novice Internet users up to experienced security researchers, yet still retaining the power and advanced underlying systems that has defined our software for over half a decade.
    We'll keep you posted!


    Best regards,
    The DiamondCS Team

    Just a slight "slippage" the mul :oops:
    Due to the ever changing methods used by the malware community, DCS recognised that the next version of TDS had to add some new features that needed to be researched & developed from scratch. This has taken longer than expected due to their, in many cases, undocumented nature by MS. This research and development is required for these changes to happen and for adding the new features.
    Port Explorer & Process Guard are spin-offs of some of that research.

    I am sure DCS will add their comments.

    I do know that things due change along the way pilli, but the waiting is getting very frustrating and i am quite sure others agree on this issue.

    I and other tds operators would like to narrow down future release date as for example, it will be released in the next 3months, or maybe the next 6 months, but we would just like to have some sort of answer as to when it maybe released ,as time is getting on and patience is running out.

    As u said we will have to wait and see if we get some sort of answer from dcs on this subject again, and not have to wait to long for a reply to the main question of tds4 release.

    It's no use of saying any date as you've seen. Around christmas, around the corner, soon, and you do know the order will be Active guard, Scanner and then TDS Pro, and fortunately in between we did get several wonderful gems besides the still top notch TDS-3 Pro to keep us busy and systems clean with. The beta team istesting very new technologies which will be seen in the other products at ahnds and which serve the TDS-4 products again.
    But hey, all this has been repeated many times again and again and all over internet!
    You're working actually with parts of the new TDS-4 environment only has other names on it.
