I'm not sure, but I don't think so, maybe Heur + KSN (in Russian):

Kaspersky Free Anti-Virus 16.0.1.445 RC скачать бесплатно - Бета продукты - Comss

Translated info from Russian:
Kaspersky 365 1/4 - free Kaspersky Anti-Virus (Kaspersky Antivirus Free), offers file protection in real-time, Web Anti-Virus, IM and e-mail anti-virus, as well as cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network technology

* Warning!Beta-version of the program may become unstable.It is intended for advanced users only. Beta testing - intensive use almost finished version of the program in order to identify the maximum number of errors in its work for subsequent elimination before the final exit (release).

**IMPORTANT:Activate free license for 365 days only in the territory of the Russian Federation.

Program Description
Kaspersky 365 1/4(Kaspersky Antivirus Free) - a free anti-virus and web protection in real-time cloud technologies.

The solution includes all the necessary components to ensure basic protection for your PC, important data and online activity on the Internet from the latest threats.

From Eugene Kaspersky (founder of "Kaspersky Lab"):

This product is free, but not full of holes.The protection from malware compromises are unacceptable and it is just a product for which we do not be ashamed. It is built on the same technology as the paid personal products, which occupy the top places in independent tests. Without the surveillance of the user for advertising and trade its confidentiality. No such garbage - only protection.

The main difference between Kaspersky 365 1/4 of the paid products "Kaspersky Lab" - limited functionality.But limited enough to provide quality basic protection which is sufficient to counter the most common threats. Do not blame me: all the extra features will sell as before, because programmers salary costs for infrastructure and technology development and other expenses while nobody canceled.

Kaspersky will be 365 1/4 only in Russian.As a result of "pilot" will distribute the product in other cultural environments, and in the future - at the global level.

Main features of Kaspersky 365 1/4

I think that announce is a bit ambiguous o_O:confused:... I'd would say better "beta testing has finished" :D

He didn't talk about when will be released, still no final installer for 2016MR1, so I would take it with pins...

Every new release always/usually takes time, so I think We'll have the official release probably for January 2016.

I still have no info about auto-update feature...

About KFA (K. Free Anti-Virus)... only Russian and Chinese languages have been tested, but We all know that others languages installers were available maybe for internal testing, still don't know Kaspersky's marketing/releasing strategy about KFA...

Maybe Sher is talking about 2016MR1 in general, this is as always was in the past, since beta testing finished it will take some weeks until the release... so be patient :)
