We are recommending that customers discontinue using Avastar 2-0-23, if support is expected, as this is a test version, and most issues have already been solved and will become available with the Avastar-2.1 release candidate.
Thanks for all your ongoing support to help us identifying the issues. Continued use of Avastar-2.0-23 is your decision as long as you understand we cannot offer support for issues you encounter.
The Avastar-2 final release is expected to become available around march 2017. For detailed information please read the Avastar-2 test Report
