AdGuard for Android v2.9.135

A new Adguard for Android version has been released today. It is not excessively rich with new features and other changes - more will come in v2.10 and, eventually, in Adguard v3.0. However, there is still one big highlight - we have vastly reworked and improved the User filter. Read below to find out the details.

Let's start with the main news:

[Improved] The user filter has been reworked #1279

Any experience of interacting with the previous incarnation of User filter could not be described with any other word but 'miserable'. It used to be clunky, unresponsive and slow. A lot has changed in this version.

First, the new design. It has become much cleaner, see for yourself:

As you can see, we have combined all of the control elements - add a new rule, clear the filter, edit the filter, import and export - under one toolbar menu.

Second, you now have an option to enter the so-called "edit mode" that brings up the multiline text edit area. It is very handy if you need to copy/paste/delete multiple lines of text at once, or just edit several rules in a row without clicking on each and every one of them.

Finally, the general way it looks. Rules are color-differentiated depending on their type, comments are distinctively visible and every rule can be disabled and enabled back without having to delete and re-create it.

If you have any interest in creating and maintaining a list of your own rules, you are going to, without any doubt, welcome these changes. We, personally, are very excited! :)
