Best fix is a hotfix: a one-two punch by AdGuard

Despite all the internal and beta testing, sometimes things just don't go quite as you expect them to after a release. This happens even to the largest of companies, not to mention AdGuard. What separates good developers from not so good ones is how fast they react to the unexpected difficulties. We'd like to think we are among the former ones, that's why we don't shy away from hotfixes if the situation calls for it.

This time around, it so happened that we needed to roll out not one but two hotfixes: one for AdGuard for Android and another for AG Browser extension.

AG for Android hotfix

Turned out, on some older devices (Android 6 and older) AdGuard didn't restart after the protection got paused automatically (say, on the network state change). This affected a large enough portion of AdGuard users to justify an immediate update.

Despite literally dozens of updates to CoreLibs done prior to v2.12 release, there is still plenty of room to improve. We took the opportunity to make few more changes to the filtering engine.

Several more minor changes have been made, too, but we won't bother you with them. As you probably know by heart now, the complete changelog is always on Github.

AG Browser extension hotfix

We know how popular the "Block element on a page" feature is among AdGuard extension users, so any problem with it automatically becomes very sensitive. After the last update, the "Preview" window stopped closing for many users, and this is obviously a big deal. The new version (v2.10.11) with the fix is already vailable, so check that your extension is up to date.

By the way, just recently we finished implementing a neat new feature, so it got included in this release too:

[Added] An option to save Filtering Log when reloading the page #1074

When you refresh a page, the contents of the Filtering Log used to disappear. This is sometimes convenient, but not always. Now there's a checkbox to keep all the log entries after the page reload if you want to.

AdGuard Security Notice

We have detected an attack towards AdGuard servers. The most important thing is: AdGuard servers were not compromised. Malefactors used existing databases of email/password pairs previously leaked by different companies. We believe that attackers were able to access some of the accounts, but only few of them which owners used the same compromised email/password pair. If you are not one of them, your personal data was not leaked. We made a desicion to reset all users' passwords anyway, mostly as a preventive measure.

In-depth features overview: AdGuard for Windows

In the modern world so many of us live and work under the constant deficit of time, so it's only natural that we often weigh our choice towards fast solutions to problems in almost every aspect. We use the same logic when we choose our apps, many of which have become an integral part of our everyday life. Apps that don't require our supervision or additional configuring and are capable of instantly performing their job from the get-go, have a serious edge over the competition.
