Strange there isn't a separate installer yet.  I guess it is an attempt to prevent the download server from becoming overwhelmed.
The MBAM Team provides direct linkage once the release is ready for prime time. At present it will be rolled out via internal update only.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware v2.1.8.1057
06.19.2015

Urgent Release
• An urgent MBAM2 release (v2.1.8.1057) was made that resolves "a potential crash when scanning that had to do with how we were parsing digital signatures."
• The throttled upgrades have been reset. If your system was at v2.1.7.1055 Premium, it will auto-upgrade. If at v2.1.4.1018 Premium, your system will still be queued for the v2.1.8.1057 upgrade.

How about those of us running 2.1.6.1022 Premium?

Following the slow (or random) release schedule, 2.1.6.1022 will be added to the queue for 2.1.8.1057.

MBAM 2.1.8.1057 is now available for public download from https://www.malwarebytes.org/ ; it should have already been "pushed" to most existing users by now.

Be advised there are reports in the MBAM forum of people who "lost" their existing PRO license upon updating the program to 2.1.8 from an earlier version.   This in fact happened to me on one of three systems where I'm running MBAM PRO --- in essence, the PRO version "relapsed" into a basic/free version.   Fortunately, I had copied and saved my license data, so I was able to reinstate the necessary information.

The reason is due to an effort to detect the pirated keys. Please see Marcian's post .  Note your license information prior to updating.

That posts starts off with "If you're using a pirated copy, i.e. using a pirated key, you will get a popup telling your license is invalid..."

I did NOT receive any such popup/message.   Rather, upon receiving an internal database update, I also received the latest program update.   I accepted the installation and was surprised to observe that, upon opening MBAM, my PRO version had "degraded" to the Free version.   (But only on 1 of 3 systems... the other two behaved normally.)

As Marcin said:

Quote
The problem with pirated keys it that they may collide with a legitimate key just by the sheer numbers.

Thus, in cases where that collision occurs, it is generally only necessary to add the Identifier along with the Key as you did.

I understand that this latest version is being rolled out slowly. You can't download it at their site. And a possible beta:

https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/173918-malwarebytes-anti-malware-220-released/

I can't download it unless there's something going on at their site. ???

If this is abeta, I'll wait. Betas often still have issues. When the final or alpha version comes out, then I'll get it. ::)

The full announcement can be viewed here:   https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/173918-malwarebytes-anti-malware-220-released/ 
and it contains a link to the full installer (for those who want it now, rather than waiting for the gradual updating).

It is NOT a beta... it's an official release.

darksurfer, I'm sure you do not mean grabbing an alpha version. That is worse than beta!

Eventually I'll get an announcement that the updated version has been downloaded and is ready to install. I'll wait.

When I fist saw winchester73's post, I read it too quickly to notice the "roll out" statement.
So
I went to the download link in Corrine's original post, and downloaded it.
It was the new version.

Yes, plodr. I meant to say finale version and , guess what, it's available. Right here at Major Geeks. Check this out:

I downloaded it and it works great  ;D :D ;)

darksurfer, why did you use a third party site instead of the vendor site to download the new version? ::)
