December 11, 2007: ASV 6 Alpha 3c now available to ASV 5 users...

November 11, 2007: ASV 6 Alpha 3b now available to ASV 5 users...
Licensed ASV 5 users can now download ASV 6 Alpha 3b at their assigned download locations.
 
There has been fixes to both AS2 and AS3 decompile engines, but unfortunately we weren't able to include our latest AS3 engine because it is/was not in a stable state. Our next release will be first ASV 6 beta!
 
October 15, 2007: ASV 6 Alpha 3 now available to ASV 5 users...
This is certainly a better version than Alpha 2a, and ASV 5.28 -as we think we have fixed bugs related to ASV5 functionality- but there are still too many open issues regarding AS3 decompile.
 
ASV version 6 alpha 3

 
September 12, 2007: ASV 6 Alpha 2a now available to ASV 5 users...
Alpha 2 had a problem with displaying SWF 8 and below content. This was a simple bug and did not affect any AS3 content, so you could use ASV 5 for AS1/AS2 content and ASV6 alpha 2 for AS3 content as a workaround, but this would be a hassle. So we fixed this, and also added an option that helps bypassing certain obfuscations (again targets AS2 content only). We kept the filename of the download same, so a little care might be needed to get the correct file if you have already downloaded Alpha2.
 
September 10, 2007: ASV 6 Alpha 2 now available to ASV 5 users...
Release notes:
  • Alpha 2
  • This is still alpha, please read the notes for Alpha 1 below, they still apply.
  • Here are the changes in this release:
    • More than 100 issues with the Decompile engine have been fixed/implemented. The results should be much better though many parts are still incomplete. Please report crashing bugs and also when the decompile is wrong in a big way.
    • For files using AS3, p-code mode is now available.
    • For files using AS3, File | Save SWF Data as Text... command now works, and so you can save all scripts to a single text file.
August 13, 2007: ASV 6 Alpha 1 now available to ASV 5 users...
We have just released ASV 6 Alpha 1. It's now available at assigned download locations for all licensed ASV 5 users.
 
Release notes are below, but in summary, what you get is really alpha software, with an incomplete decompile engine showing only scripts in AS3 SWF files. Still, we think shown scripts will help - it's not totally useless, just very incomplete...
 
ASV 6.0 Alpha 1 Release Notes August 13, 2007
  • Alpha 1
  • This is alpha software, means it's not feature complete, features available are not complete and has not been fully tested.
  • What will work?
    SWF files not using AS3 should work as with ASV 5 (Please report if you find this is not the case). For SWF files using AS3, scripts will be listed in the ActionScripts tab. When you click on an item, you should see the decompiled script. Also, you should be able to see the document class in Movie Information dialog. No other feature of ASV should be expected to work.
  • There are many known issues, features not implemented (Both with ASV and the AS3 decompile engine). On top of this, at this time, our official support for AS3 SWFs is for Flash CS3 created SWF files exported with optimization on (This means our internal tests were done with such SWF files).
  • Known issues with the decompile engine is too many to list but we can say that new XML, RegExp, activation and some namespace related parts, variable types and p-code view are not there at all (We have removed some work in progress).
  • Not tested on Vista. (We currently do not use Vista. Rather than supporting Vista, we depend on Vista supporting a well-behaved Win32 application like ASV. Please report any problems).
August 6, 2007: ASV 5.28 released!
This minor update mainly fixes and enhances the decompile engine. Registered users can now download the new version at their assigned download URLs.
 
First ASV 6 alpha will be available in just a few days to all ASV 5 customers at their download URLs...
 
August 2, 2007: Pricing change...
Single user license for ASV now costs 80 USD. Upgrade pricing is also increased from 14 USD to 15 USD.
 
For the last 5 years, Turkey's exchange rate policy has been having over-valued Turkish currency. Exchange rate for USD-YTL is around the same as exactly 6 years ago and during that time there has been considerable inflation in Turkey (at least 90%, many calculate it as more). So, while we mentioned USD-EUR exchange rates (below), USD-YTL exchange rates is what really matters for us...
 
We have made our calculations came up with 33% price increase. Thank you for your understanding. It's important for us that our prospective and current customers know that we do not increase (or decrease) our prices arbitrarily, but only out of necessity and after careful consideration. We still believe ASV (and our other software) are good value for the money. Thank you all again.
 
July 16, 2007: ASV 6 release delayed :(
We hoped to have ASV released by today. Unfortunately, this is not happening. Our current plan is releasing a customer only beta for Flash CS3 AS3 decompile around August 6. Also, because of this delay, at the same time we will release ASV 5.28, with certain decompiler updates. We are sorry for the delay, thank you for you understanding and support!
 
May 16, 2007: ASV 5.27 released!
This 7th year anniversary release fixes a couple of cosmetic issues. (No decompile engine changes).
 
May 10, 2007: ASV 5.25 released!
This minor update mainly fixes and enhances the decompile engine. Registered users can now download the new version at their assigned download URLs.
 
This is probably the last ASV 5 update. ASV 6 (wth Flash CS3 support) will be available by July 16th.
 
Major changes:
  • Decompile engine fixes and enhancements.
  • Memory Manager updated.
    ASV will now use memory more efficiently which will help especially with big SWF files.
  • Actionscript View Tab now has a 'Find' section on its toolbar.
    You can now search the text in class tree, or location and instance of columns (depending on the active view).
  • New export option 'Do not include origin information'.
    When extracting resources, ASV includes its name and URL where appropriate, not for evil watermarking purposes, but for making the origin of the file clear. Now you can stop that.
As usual, current customers can download the updates at their download pages or the updated versions (or download URLs) can be requested by writing to support@buraks.com (Please make sure you state your order ID or you're writing from your registered address).
 
April 16, 2007: Flash CS3 now available for purchase
Flash CS3 Professional is now available for purchase. Adobe has not made a trial version available yet.
 
March 27, 2007: Flash CS3 and ASV 6
Today, Adobe announced the next version of Flash, Flash CS3 Professional (which will be available in April). Flash CS3 is Flash version 9, creates version 9 SWF files, which use AS3, for Flash Player 9. ASV will support AS3 with version 6, which will be released a few months after Flash CS3 is released. As per our upgrade policy, our customers who have purchased (not received is as a free upgrade) ASV 5 will get ASV 6 upgrade free. Also, for upgrade purposes, ASV purchases on or after March 1, 2007 will be considered as ASV 6 purchases.
 
Also some ASV 4 purchases will qualify for free ASV 6 upgrade: if you have purchased ASV on or after August 1, 2005, you'll qualify for free ASV 6 upgrade.
 
Flash CS3 is expected to be available on April 20th.
 
January 5, 2007: ASV 5.21 released
