When will NIS 2011 product release?

When will NIS 2011 product release?

I am testing NIS 2011 final beta.

I had bought the latest key for NIS 2011 product.

So I don't want to remove NIS 2011 beta, then install NIS 2010 again,

then remove NIS 2010 soon for install 2011 product.

I hope if you can, please release NIS 2011 soon, thank you.

Re: When will NIS 2011 product release?

As posted on the NIS/NAV 2011 beta board, the beta testing is complete. So the product will be available for download within next 2 weeks. Probably the product will be available for download in Mid September.

Re: When will NIS 2011 product release?

That's the boxed version. Apparently the download versions are usually released before that.

Re: When will NIS 2011 product release?

Agreed, if last year is anything to go by then the download should be released before the boxed version.

And the public beta program was done before it one, or tops two weeks (I can't remember it 100% :P), so I would say it would be released around the end of next week or a bit before...

I just went back to NIS 2010 per Norton's request. I have a feeling that virus definitions are going to stop untill 2011 goes RTM.

Looking at the file name I assume it;s 18.0.0.128, wasn't the latest beta we tested 18.1.0.37? I'd say that's an old version

Re: When will NIS 2011 product release?

It must have been removed because the japan trail of NIS 2011 is already out, and I think it shouldn't be allowed until the trail comes out and the boxed version comes out.

Re: When will NIS 2011 product release?

All,

The 2011 products should be out in the next few weeks - there are still some preparations that need to be made.

We'll post more information as it becomes available. 

Thank you everyone for your patience

Re: When will NIS 2011 product release?

The available Japanese version, build 18.0.0.128 is the last version from the 18.0 beta builds, which was available to download around 2 months ago or so. Version 18.1.0.37 was the latest build available for us to download during the beta tests. This was a very stable version, and it seems it will be the RTM one as well (we can guess it from the removed link), but we should wait until anyone from Symantec will announce it. It is possible that they only test the updated webpages with that build or so, and maybe the RTM one will be a newer build we never saw.

So I would suggest Everybody to wait a bit for the official announcement, and then download please any version. Removing any non RTM builds is not easy, and you can/will have troubles if the uninstaller wont work properly.....

EDIT: Tim, you was faster......

Re: When will NIS 2011 product release?

Yes you can install NIS 2011 over NIS 2010 without uninstalling NIS 2010

Re: When will NIS 2011 product release?

Allow me to echo nickelback87's question: are those final RTM versions? Or are they simply the latest stable beta builds?

We understand that Symantec probably wants to ensure that all other facets of the 2011 products (e.g. marketing, support, etc.) are fully mission-ready before the products are officially released. But for us techies, we just want to use the latest and the greatest. I believe a simple "yes" or "no" to the question above will be of help to many who are paying attention to this thread.

you won't get a yes or now as every one here would have downloaded it and if any problems arrise, they would have complained that symantec was not even ready for their latest product release, there would be no support etc..... It's better if they get everything sorted before releasing..... We had our beta, you can continue using the beta if you want while waiting for the final release

So the answer is yes then, if you were able to install, it is the RTM. Great news!

Some people report about problems like, for example, "Norton insight" doesn't work sometime. Therefore, I think its better to wait for official release when all services from Symantec side will be ON.

Re: When will NIS 2011 product release?

Officially or not, as a costumer I want to congratulate Symantec with this version. The program looks very nice.

Re: When will NIS 2011 product release?

It's great, so far, I have NO issues to report!  The log in for Norton Online Backup works too.

Congrats to Symantec and all of the Beta testers who helped in shaping the final product.

Re: When will NIS 2011 product release?

I'm really having a hard time deciding whether to uninstall the final beta build (18.1.0.37), go back to NIS 2010 for a few weeks and then back again to NIS 2011 RTM. To me that's kind of a step backwards.

In saying that, LiveUpdate doesn't appear to be functioning anymore.

When running LiveUpdate

the status screen doesn't change. So I'm kinda weary to use the beta version if it doesn't update.

Re: When will NIS 2011 product release?

I can tell you this much: at some point you are going to have to uninstall the 2011 beta.

Per Tim's last post in the Beta Forum:

The final release will not be available as an update to the beta product, nor will it support installing over a beta product. To ensure stability for the final release of the 2011 product and future updates, please be sure to completely remove the beta product.

I did, thank you!

I've just received NIS 2011 18.1.0.37 via the 'Check for New Version' feature found under the Support menu located in the top right-hand corner of the NIS 2010 main interface.

That option isn't available on the 2011 beta version. So there is a new version, hoping someone has a direct link. It's a bit perverse, having to install 2010 just to get a link/download lol.
