    seems like it never got released I guess they expect people to just run the beta, hey what a novel idea charge money for licences and never actually release the product...with this yearly updates on AV's I guess it doesn't matter everyone only runs a real product for couple months than the betas for the next year come out...its not really funny

    Hello larryb52

    I think it is just around the corner, but here is a explanation for why we haven't seen an international release yet. (new release strategy, I will guess) Link : ESET V7

    Regards, Janus

    sounds like Marketing BS to me not an actual answer at least reasonable one...they will release it than 2 months late beta 8 will start, seems to be the way of the modern corporate antivirus company...

    I do not see what the big deal is about it taking awhile before a english version comes out. the thing I like about eset is that they release products when ready. Other vendors who release yearly versions at set points have alot more problems with their software because they rush it.

    I think the release will be close with Windows 8.1

    "Yes" or shortly after, it would make sense

    I have to say that I don't see what a difference a language makes to a product. All others release multi lingual versions at the same time. Surely it doesn't take weeks just to replace the language? The rest of the program should be sorted as its out of beta phase, if its not then it should still be in beta.
    Just my two cents

    The English version of ESET v6 was also released later, first Slovenian and a few others. Unfortunately the Eset forum here is gone so I don't know how much time it took back then before the English version was released.

    This is all official info posted by ESET in different threads over at the ESET forum. It makes sense to me anyway :)

    Hello,

    The release of ESET v7 is right on schedule, with Wave 0 being released in Czech, German and Slovak and others to follow. I am sorry if you are feeling somehow neglected by this, but ESET Smart Security/ESET NOD32 Antivirus 7 is the company's flagship consumer product, and ESET is taking a phased roll-out approach to make sure it's done just right.

    ESET has now had months of beta-testing to fine-tune the software and make sure it performs well, but, with as much effort as has been put into that side of the business, it still can be pretty darn difficult to launch your flagship. So, ESET's doing a lot of "A/B testing" of exciting stuff like slogans and campaigns in proximate territory to its global HQ to see how these affect click-throughs, attach rates and so forth so the dollar spend for CPMs can be maximized.

    I cannot claim to understand any of the science behind it, but it's actually pretty cool to see how miniscule changes to things like color palettes and typography affect the heatmaps on the banner advertisements.

    While this is probably not exactly what you wanted to hear, I will leave you with this to, well, ponder¹: ESET is largely a technology company and not a marketing one, and there is only so much all of the employees there can do in a day. The software is all debugged and tested and built and ready, but now comes the next challenging part, which is selling it. Aside from being a technology company, ESET is also a business, and in order to remain a successful one, that means it sometimes needs to do things like prepare for the sale of its software, and that's something that's a little harder to beta test, so ESET do things in manageable stages, as opposed to mangle-able ones.

    If it helps makes you feel any better, (1) the changes between the last beta build and RTM build are minimal; (2) you are very likely going to be seeing the English version before the Kazakh² version comes out; and (3) the other language release waves are stacking up now and will be shortly available, although I cannot be any more specific than saying "soon."

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky

    ¹I was going to say the company was a finite state machine in an entropic universe here, but decided to leave that out.

    ²Sorry, Kazakhstan.

    should of left out all the geek speak and just said soon, which is a new corporate answer to when almost any new product/update , what have you is coming out. Funny how companies wonder why profits suffer because people take their money else where because sometimes 'soon' isn't soon enough and business as usual just doesn't cut it...

    Hello,

    Oops, sorry. I thought you (and maybe others participating or even just viewing this thread) actually wanted a detailed and comprehensive explanation of what was going on "behind the scenes." In the future, I shall try and provide less-detailed answers.

    As a reminder, ESET runs its own forum at https://forum.eset.com/ now. You can always go there if you want an official answer.

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky

    while i do greatly appreciate your answer and explanation i kinda of still have questions.. you stated the english version is basically ready and the hold up is due to sales. what about all the millions of users who already have and pay for the program?? we are not looking to new sales currently. why not offer a existing user a update via the program and just not allow the downloading of the whole .exe yet? im sure it could be setup to offer the update to paid users only could it not be? all that aside eset is still my favorite av and one of the top three i recc to my clients. im okay with a bit longer wait i just hope "soon" is not another 1-2 months.
