The fololowing languages have been included with this release:
Arabic Brazilian Chineese(Simplified) Chineese(Traditional) Czech Danish Dutch Estonian Finnish French German Italian Japaneese Polish Portugeese Romanian Russian Slovak Swedish

We have not received any translations for the following languages and hence not included them in this release:
Spanish Hungarian Croatian Norwegian Turkish Greek Indonesian Finnish Hebrew Persian Korean Catalan
Serbian Ukrainian

Please fell free to contact with me if you are ready to join translations efforts for the languages not included in this release.
This is the location where we discuss the translations: http://forums.comodo.com/feedbackcommentsannouncementsnews_cis/please_post_your_finished_translations_here-t37348.0.html

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ):
1 - Do I have to uninstall the previous versions of CIS(e.g. 3.8 ) to get this version?
No. Automatic updater is going to do the job for you. However CIS 3.5 users will have to uninstall those versions and reinstall this version because of the huge download requirements.
2 - I updated it but the automatic updater reported updates again. Whats going on?
This is expected. If you are updating from CIS 3.8, there will be a 2 stage update. First update is going to update the automatic updater and make sure it can update to CIS 3.9. Then the second update is going to make sure that update to CIS 3.9 is completed.
3 - Is BOClean integrated into CIS now? Do I still need BOClean if I have CIS 3.9?
Yes BOClean is integrated in CIS 3.9 and no you do not need BOClean if you have CIS 3.9 installed. However you MUST install COMODO Antivirus and enable realtime scanning. If you install firewall only, you may keep the standalone BOClean. However BOClean support will be stopped by 26th May 2009.
4 - I dont see my languge in the supported languages. Why?
First of all, we would like to thank all of our volunteers who made those translations for CIS. Because this is a volunteer work, at the time of this release, we might not have had the volunteers for that particular language. Or sometimes even if there are volunteers, their schedules may not match the release schedule of CIS.
This is the location where we discuss the translations: http://forums.comodo.com/feedbackcommentsannouncementsnews_cis/please_post_your_finished_translations_here-t37348.0.html
5 - Which languages does this release support?
In this release, we have officially translated Chineese(Simplified) and Russian versions in house. The other languages are translated by our volunteer users. For the full list please check above.
6 - Does this multilingual support mean that COMODO provides email/phone support in these new languages too?
No. COMODO offers phone/email support only in English(For paid products only). However our forums have international boards which can allow you to get help in your own language.
7 - I was a beta tester. Do I have to uninstall the BETA and reinstall this version?
The automatic updater will update yours too. But a reinstall is always better than this for BETA versions.
8 - Will automatic updates change my existing settings?
Automatic updates will not change your existing settings. This means it will not add the small changes in the new default firewall policy. But this can be overcome by using Stealth My Ports Wizard.
But please note that because of the optimizations in this version, if you do a clean install, you can get a faster and a more compact D+ policy while CIS learns your existing settings in a new way.

I have version 3.8.65951.477 running on Vista 64 bits and have tried to force the update many times using the misc. Check for update function but it always says no update available.

??


I have managed to download the new version from the link provided. Can I just run the install file or would I have to uninstall 3.8 first?


Thanks,

Egemen, you had said that this feature will be discontinued from the future versions. So, is this the one?
You mean loading a DLL into memory? CIS is not supposed to or even designed to detect if you load a DLL into the process space of an application normally(without hooking or memory injection) except for rundll32.exe(Even this is going to change in the future versions).

By setting image execution control to aggressive and adding *.dll to execution list, you can receive alerts for DLLs but this is not really recommended/intended to be used and we will discontinue this ability in the future versions.

However, if you have a way to execute a standalone executable and bypass the image execution control, that means a flaw and let me know.

Nope. IT is still there. Not in the near future.

It will take some to time get updates syncronized with all of the servers. Eventually, you will get the updates.

Thanks for the large release notes post  :-TU

Guy's if you are coming from beta/rc release please note your AV update path is still AV/beta39 you have to correct that manually for your profile in the registry.

I have done a nice automatic update from 3.9.x.502RC2 to this release and all seems fine except my av UpdatePath registry key's... Running Vista SP1, Enterprise, x32 here.

Will go for the 3.8.x -> 3.9.x conversion now and see what happens  ;)
