Release notes - planned features vs bugs
It would be very helpful if when Norton make a significant upgrade they publish sensible release notes that document what changes the user will see. This would allow us to distinguish planned changes (which we may or may not agree with!) from unplanned bugs (which would then be easier to identify and report). You might want to include an explanation for the reasoning behind some changes where appropriate.
The 'What are the changes in this release?' section on
is not at all helpful in this respect.
For example some changes that I have noticed so far between 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124:
a) Under Administrative Settings, configure Background Tasks the Power Source configuration settings have vanished.
b) Under Administrative Settings, Product Security, Non-Admins Access to Settings has vanished.
c) Under Firewall, Advanced Program Control tab, 'Application with Unproven Reputation' has been changed to 'Low Risk Applications', however the online help still says 'Application with Unproven Reputation'.
d) Under Firewall, the tab has changed from 'Antispyware and Updates' to 'Updates' and the Antispyware setting has vanished.
Others may wish to add to this list...
Please identify which are of these are planned changes and which are bugs.
