AdGuard 3.1 for Android: little big update

Most, if not all, of AdGuard products major updates come with a extensive Blog article that describes the most noteworthy changes in detail, gives a review of all new features, shows screenshots and so on. Compared to them, this one may seem a bit unassuming. Well, let's see if it's true!

In v3.1 we make an emphasis on UI improvements. Nothing too crazy, but thanks to the sheer number of changes you'll make no mistake distinguishing it from AdGuard 3.0. In fact, since we don't have anything outstanding to stop by, let me just post the complete changelog here:
