Ad Muncher v4.8 Final Available

Postby Murray » Wed Oct 21, 2009 6:11 am

Dear Sir/Madam,

We're pleased to announce the release of Ad Muncher v4.8 Build 31318, which is now available from:

http://www.admuncher.com/AM-Install.exe

This release was previously called v4.73 during beta testing, but has been renamed to v4.8 to reflect the large amount of work that has gone into it.

The major changes in this version include:

- A completely new system has been implemented for filtering JavaScript content, which provides much more reliable popup filtering and significantly reduces the chances of unwanted interference with web sites.

- Significant filtering performance improvements have also been made, along with other minor fixes and improvements.

- This release also makes Ad Muncher compatible with Microsoft's new Windows 7.

A full list of over 100 fixes and improvements is available from:

http://www.admuncher.com/changelog.txt

We're also pleased to announce four frequently-requested improvements to Ad Muncher's licensing:

- A new "Basic" license has been made available at a lower price ($19.95 AUD), which gives all the normal Ad Muncher features with slightly less regular updates.

- Licenses can now be purchased with updates guaranteed for one or more years, rather than for all v4.x releases, all v5.x releases, etc. This way people won't be punished for purchasing a license when v5.0 isn't far away.

- There is now an option to include lifetime updates with licenses.

- Licenses can now also be purchased as gifts for other people, with separate billing and delivery information.

These changes of course only apply to new licenses and existing licenses will continue to be given the service that was purchased.

We sincerely thank everyone who helped in testing Ad Muncher v4.8, and we look forward to continuing our work on making Ad Muncher the best advert blocking system available.


Yours sincerely, and with thanks,

Murray Hurps

Is there any way to update an already valid license to the above?

Murray, one item on your web site that needs to be updated..... It might save some queries.

1. Platform: Windows 95, 98, ME, NT4, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista

Windows 7 needs to be added to your home page.

2. Supports 32 & 64 Bit

If we have purchased a license earlier, will it be considered a basic or premium license?

There is not.

You'll have to buy a new one for the new changes.

So, when our year of updates runs out, we are going to be forced to buy a new one instead of getting a discount for upgrading?

And you guys need to fix the quote problem on here as you can't quote anyone.
