    Thanks for Posting and for the Changelog! I checked the Download links and this update don't seem to be available to everyone ATM and could take a few days to roll out.

    8.0.2.14 showed up on my system this morning. The GUI has been expanded significantly making a lot more information available at a glance. The addition of USB device protection is a good addition. Great to see the ongoing effort to improve WSA :thumb:

    You should be able to download a copy as a trial, from the Webroot site, otherwise you will need to wait until it is either automatically rolled out to you if you already run WSA or it is available under MyWebroot...as far as I know.

    It would be nice and useful even if we closed beta users at least would NOT be the LAST to get updated, says one of them running still 8.0.2.6 here. :rolleyes: - That time delayed updating sucks big time. The application should deliver it if user is asking for it via "check for updates". Automatic update could wait of course.

    And I really would think that Webroot is a company that has the bandwidth for such a small tool to deployed to its customers in a small time frame! And no, for beta testers you can't say you want to carefully release this because you have fears for something could go wrong, right? So pleeeease finally roll it out if you would, thanks. :D

    It's not download bandwidth - it's potential issue mitigation. We don't want all of our users to suddenly be on a new version that is brand new so we stage out our updates in case we need to change something.

    In this case, however, it looks like the changelog was posted far before the actual binaries - they haven't been released anywhere yet but are scheduled to go up today I believe.

    Although the product page (also trial versions) mention Mac, the download option only downloads wsainstall.exe (I tried the Complete version).
    I guess I have to be a little more patient :)
