For your information:

Quote from: Agnitum Security Products Update Notification
***************
The new beta version of Outpost Security Suite Pro 2008 has just been released to the public for testing.

This version supports the following platforms: Windows Vista (32 and 64-bit editions), Windows XP (32 and 64-bit editions), Windows 2003 Server (32 and 64-bit editions), Windows 2000 (SP3 and above).

A description of this first public beta is available at the Agnitum blog: http://agnitumblog.blogspot.com/

We will soon set up a special forum to discuss the new beta.

Happy testing!

The current beta version is not final and has the following limitations. At the same time, we expect the next public beta release to incorporate all the missing features:

Web Control module (packing tools such as web content control, ad blocker, active content, ID Block, suspicious sites access monitor) is not included.

Real-time email attachments scanner is disabled.

Antispam module is not currently available.

Interface is available in English only.

Compatibility issues with third-party NDIS filters under Windows Vista (network monitor software, other security software).

We encourage you to help us improve the product while it's still in the beta process. Jump right in and participate in our public beta.

LOL - anyone dare to install this?

Their new release versions (of just the firewall) had enough major issues and bugs - a suite still in beta ... you'd have to be barmy to install it on anything other than a testbed!!!!

heheh that was my first reaction too. ;D

Don't get me wrong, I love Outpost, but i view all of their releases as potentially buggy betas, so when even THEY label something as an experimental beta.. look out!

You know, when I posted the initial post yesterday, I clicked "Modify" at once, and removed the few words I had added at the end of the post, because I realized that the little joke I had written very well could be mis-interpreted. Guess what the words said? They said: "Not for Carol"...   :P
