This is a beta release for 188.8.131.5272. The purpose of this release is to allow users to get early access to fixes and provide feedback as it would be impossible for our internal team to cover due to the huge amount of different possible PC environments out there. We do recommend you use a new database as a precaution.
Even though we rarely see anything that serious in these betas, and they have gone through some internal testing, they have not completed all our internal tests yet and the chances of a bug are higher than normal.
You can manually download the build here, if you have any issues you can rollback to the last stable version here.
Antivirus / Firewall warning:
Release Notes:If your getting this message that the blitz.dll or the StarsCommunicator.hm2 is a trojan/virus with the recent v8167 release that is a false positive, the reason is we updated the files recently for Pokerstars fast poker and this often causes firewalls and antiviruses to be suspicious which is a good thing.
As long as you downloaded HM2 through the auto update or from a genuine link from one of our staff there is nothing to worry about, add C:\Program Files (x86)\Holdem Manager 2\holdemamanager.exe to your exceptions and also C:\Program Files (x86)\Holdem Manager 2\Blitz.dll and C:\Program Files (x86)\Holdem Manager 2\StarsCommunicator.hm2 and tell it to ignore it if you get a warning, normally within a day or two security software companies will approve it and the issue will go away.
