Windows Beta - Versões do AdGuard

This is almost the final preparation for the release version. Added minor improvements and fixes, updated Assistant and WOT.

  • Update Assistant and Wot to 4.3.18 and 1.1.16 respectively #2942
  • Translations update

This release candidate contains small but important changes - all major fixes were in the previous Beta. This time we focused on improving the user interface and worked with compatibility with some browsers.

  • Fixed support menu window (UI) #2910
  • Check for email validation before submitting a support request #2911
  • Failed test: Uninstallation via uninstall shortcut #2916
  • AdGuard does not filter Iridium browser #2918
  • UI elements should be aligned #2922
  • Incompatibility with Epic Browser #2927

Time to move our Windows app forward! In the first v7.2 beta we introduce such absolute bangers as new installer design, installer crash reporting tool and new “Filter localhost” setting. Joking aside, while those might be not the most exciting changes, they are certainly useful and overall nice to have. We also did a good amount of dirty work in terms of bug hunting, crash fixing and so on.

[Changed] Installer redesign #2574

When the visual style of your app’s installer doesn’t fit the visual style of the app itself, it’s not good. Same as wearing sandals with socks. So we fixed it!

New installer looks so good, sometimes we uninstall AdGuard just to look at it once more. Hope you like it just as much as we do! And if not, no big deal: you’re not going to come across it too often, hopefully.

[Added] Installer crash reporting tool #2566

One of the most annoying types of crashes, both for users and developers, is when the app crashes during the installation. Our usual crash reporting tool was useless in such cases. What’s the logical solution? Correct, to give the installer its own reporting tool!

As you can see, it looks almost exactly the same. Nothing will be sent without your consent, and you can also add a comment with the description of the problem to help our developers fix the crash faster.

[Added] “Filter localhost" advanced setting #2830

Some apps, for example antiviruses, may use localhost for interactions between their components. In rare cases it could lead to compatibility problems. Now it’s possible to manage filtering of localhost with the help of the new setting.

Be sure that you know what you’re doing before messing with any of the advanced settings!

You can find this setting among advanced settings. By default, it’s disabled. We advise to try to enable it only if you experience very serious issues, e.g. when web pages don’t load or there’s no internet connection.

  • [Fixed] AdGuard does not handle alphanumeric versions properly #2876
  • [Fixed] Compatibility issues
  • [Improved] Handling of filter subscription detections #2517

This is more of a hotfix than a release candidate. Some Firefox users reported problems with browser freezing. We determined that this behavior was a sequence of hanged connections, which in its turn was caused by a CoreLibs bug. It’s crucial to eliminate all such bugs before we release a stable version (which will be soon), so here we are.

  • [Fixed] An error while update/reinstall user script from the local file #2679
  • [Fixed] Minor changes in UI #2678
In this beta we make an emphasis on UI changes but also fix several crashes. We also took this opportunity to introduce a new userscript — AdGuard Extra.

[Added] AdGuard Extra extension #2648
In some complicated cases the usual approach with filtering rules just doesn’t work. In particular, in some cases of ad blocker circumvention/ad reinjection. So we came up with an alternative solution — a userscript. For those unfamiliar, userscripts are basically mini programs that modify web pages and augment browsing.

AdGuard Extra does it in a way that makes it harder for websites to employ the circumvention/reinjection techniques. AdGuard for Windows is the second AdGuard product to get this addition, we are thrilled to see it in action and read your feedback on it.

UI
[Added] An option to add/remove filters from the General settings screen #2620

[Improved] CoreLibs has been updated #2645

Rejoice! The time has come! For the first time since basically ever there's a new AdGuard for Windows beta. We know a lot of people have been expecting it and weren't exactly happy about the long wait. We can only hope that the result will be worth the wait for you, as we really tried our best. Of course, there's a new design, no way around it. You'll also find inside such cool new additions as automatic crash reports, improved CoreLibs and much more. Let's not waste any more time and dive in:

[Improved] UI and installer redesign #2574

It is somewhat of a tradition by this point to have a UI redesign with each major AdGuard for Windows version upgrade. This time will not be an exception. AdGuard 7.0 for Windows will look very different from the current familiar version. Have a look for yourself:

  • Light

  • Dark

Yes, you saw it right: AG for Windows now has a dark theme too! Love it or hate it, it's there, it's optional and you are free to embrace it or ignore it altogether.

The installer follows the trend and gets a redesign too. It only makes sense, because the installer is the first thing new users see when they start their acquaintance with AdGuard, and it better be good! Hope you'll find it an upgrade too:

[Improved] CoreLibs

Everybody knows what CoreLibs is by this point, but we'll remind anyway: it is a filtering engine that drives the whole process of ad blocking in most AdGuard products, AdGuard for Windows included. And with every new version of CL these products become better: the quality of ad blocking increases, they work faster and become more stable. This beta of AdGuard 7.0 for Windows features the most recent of CoreLibs version, which means this is as good as it gets. Well, at least until the next CoreLibs update :)

[Added] Automatic crash reports #2298

Sometimes apps crash, and you can do nothing about it. Reasons can be very different, and so are solutions.
To be able to investigate every crash individually and find a proper fix to it, we add integration with an automatic crash report system. If AdGuard crashes, upon the next launch you'll be asked if you want to send a crash report.

Nothing will ever be sent without your consent, and if you want to know what exactly is in the report, you can check out our Privacy Policy. We'll appreciate each and every report, as it will help us greatly in making AdGuard for Windows more stable.

We are preparing a new release, and this RC holds quite a few impactful changes. Worth noting are the Popup Blocker update, new localizations and several important fixes.

[Changed] TLS 1.2 is used by default if Avast is detected

As we’ve said earlier, TLS 1.3 is the current standard, but some antiviruses still use v1.2, notably Avast. We would like to completely switch to v1.3 but have to take this into consideration.

[Fixed] Application update resets Assistant settings and restores deleted extensions

There won’t be enough fingers combined on hands of all people in our office to count the number of times users complained about this issue. One of our current priorities is to make the process of updating AdGuard as smooth as possible, and certainly preserving users’ settings is a big step in that direction.

[Changed] Highlighting color for the whitelisted requests in Filtering Log
[Changed] AdGuard now asks for a reboot after TDI driver update on Windows 7
[Fixed] Crash upon opening the Filtering Log
[Fixed] PopupBlocker is not updated alongside AG update
[Improved] Popup Blocker extension has been updated to v2.5.8
[Improved] Localizations have been updated, new languages have been added (Slovenian, Czech, Belarusian)
Delaying a release is always bad, fixing a crucial bug is always good. It hurts us to postpone the v6.4 once again, but we had to quickly run out a release candidate to test this very important fix.


[Fixed] AdGuard fails to start service
[Fixed] Firefox 64-bit handshake issues with some domains
[Fixed] "Service failure" tile and "Trial expired" tile appear simultaneously
[Fixed] Crash on multiple tray clicks right after the installation
[Improved] Suppress the `Alt-Svc` header
[Improved] AG icon has been updated to a high resolution version
[Improved] Maximize close box for AdGuard notification twice size (11x11 pxls to 22x22 pxls) on Windows 7
The emphasis in this beta has been made on various networking issues, particularly on compatibility with antiviruses.

Ad blocking

[Improved] URL exclusion blocking rules are now created with `important` modifier by default #2305

Networking

[Fixed] AdGuard does not filter connections with TDI driver #2308
[Fixed] Avast Free prevents AdGuard from suppressing QUIC #2310

The current way of whitelisting apps from filtering for WFP driver has been extended to TDI driver. It allows to avoid compatibility issues with other software, especially with antivirus software.

[Improved] AdGuard now checks on installation if the TDI driver is not registered yet #2321
[Fixed] Check that QUIC v44 is blocked properly #2335

UI

[Fixed] AdGuard remembers the last displayed settings tab after closing #2317
[Fixed] The Assistant icon appears in full screen mode on YouTube and Twitch #2309
[Fixed] Move the assistant icon back to the right corner #2314

Other

[Fixed] Crash while closing from tray #2252
[Fixed] Crash after auto-update on the application startup on Windows 7 #2290
[Fixed] An error while parsing the userscript metadata #2311
[Improved] A privacy-friendly protocol is now used for the parental control web service #2316
This is rather a hotfix then beta for those users who experienced problems with filtering via TDI driver.

[Fixed] AdGuard does not filter connections with TDI driver
This is the first beta after v6.3 release, so for starters we have a rather shallow changelog. Don't worry, there will be more goodies to come once we gain steam.

[Fixed]Unrelated TCP connections get reset when starting Adguard Service

AdGuard needs to reset connections when it starts/restarts its service in order to properly filter them. What AdGuard doesn't have to do is to reset connections that it is not going to filter anyway. So from now on, it won't do it, as simple as that.

[Fixed] AdguardSvc process memory leak
[Fixed] Duplicated EV certificate messages
[Fixed] WebReport's checkbox "Hide your referer from third-parties" is disabled when custom referer is not specified
[Fixed] Duplicated “expiring” message"
[Fixed] Twitch Desktop App is not filtered
[Fixed] Crash after auto-update on the application startup (Win7)

[Improved] Improve custom filters URLs parsing
This is a very small update aimed at fixing a couple of minor issues.

[Improved] Do not allow auto-switch update channel within the process of the upgrade #2269
[Fixed] MS Edge is not filtered in the Windows Insider Preview #2270
[Fixed] User script name being corrupted while export settings #2275
Few more fixes before the new release.

[Fixed] Incorrect exception rule is created with Assistant #2265
[Fixed] HTTPS filtering issue with Android Messages #2266
[Fixed] Windows notification center is unavailable after first install #2268
Tidying up some last minute issues before the upcoming release. Among the noticeable changes is a new option to switch between preferred versions of the TLS protocol.

[Added] An advanced setting that lets switching between TLS 1.2 and 1.3

TLS v1.3 support was added in the previous beta version, but this protocol is not universally supported yet, so it makes sense to provide an option to disable its use to avoid possible incompatibilities.

UI

[Changed] The first screen of the installer
[Fixed] Parental control module doesn't save sensitivity level choice:
[Improved] Better support for visually impaired users

Other

[Changed] Restrictions on the length of non-script and non-style elements have been removed
[Fixed] Crash while closing from the tray
[Fixed] Suppress browser cache on a GM storage state change:
[Improved] Traditional Chinese translations for filters have been updated
Compatibility issues
This beta version is a powerhouse in terms of additions and changes. The addition of TLS 1.3 support is the headliner, read below what’s so cool and important about it. Good news for those users who resort to screen readers — AdGuard has become more friendly towards them. Filter updates will now take much less time.

[Added] TLS1.3 Support (draft 28) #2155

TLS 1.3 is a new version of the cryptographic protocol used to encrypt messages sent via HTTP. It is faster, more secure and overall better than its predecessors. It has not been accepted by IETF as a standard yet, but it is only a matter of time. The process has already started, and we want to be at the forefront, and thus we have already added the TLS 1.3 (draft 28) support.

[Improved] Filters update procedure's performance #2211

If you had the misfortune of a habit to update your filters often, you certainly noticed that it took quite a lot of time, as well as installing new filters. We addressed this problem, the situation should change drastically for the better now.

[Improved] Better support for visually impaired users #2068

AdGuard tries to provide the best online experience for all users alike, and visually impaired users are no exception. Starting with this beta, AdGuard menus are much better suited to be read by NVDA Screen Reader and other screen reading programs.

Ad blocking

[Fixed] Manually added to “filtered apps” applications get removed after an update #2195
[Fixed] Cannot parse CSP from a meta tag #2207

[Improved] `AdGuard.tools` can now be run as a "true" win64 process on 64-bit OS #1809
Hello! Anybody here? There hasn’t been a new Windows beta for so long, we are not sure anymore. Hopefully, you are still aboard, and you will find the new beta worth the time spent. We believe it is — among other important stuff we greatly reduced the build size, almost twice compared to its former self. Oh, and there’s a new update channel now — Nightly. Intrigued? You should be. Read on to find the details.

[Changed] Default builder has been drastically reworked

Basically, this is the change that caused the build size reduction that was advertised in the introduction. As the app accretes new features over the years and the code mounts up, this becomes more and more relevant. Thanks to this change, now we can add even more!

[Added] Nightly update channel

This has recently been covered in the Blog article, but I’ll give the brief explanation here too.

The concept of a “Nightly” build is very simple. It literally means “a build that is released at the end of every day”, hence “nightly”. In reality, it may not happen every single day, but rather every 3 or 4 days, but the idea is there. All the latest changes made by developers will be included in the nightly build (yes, including possible bugs — be prepared!). If you feel that beta is not enough for you, and you need to be a step ahead of the rest, this is the choice for you. Just go to AdGuard settings and switch to Nightly update channel.

Ad Blocking

[Fixed] Fix the translation for the 'Get Premium' tile
[Fixed] Baofeng video software compatibility issue

This is the last release candidate to end them all, we promise. The release is right behind the corner. The only change here is about compatibility issues with different antiviruses — a routine that has to be done before any release.

[Changed] |"HasConflictWithWpf" flag values have been updated
Presumably, the last release candidate before the inevitable coming of AdGuard v6.2. The highlight of this version is integration with a reports web app. Read below to see what it is and why is it so cool. AdGuard default userscripts have been updated (Assistant, PopupBlocker), and other minor changes have been made too.

[Added] Integration with Reports Web App

When it comes to keeping our filter lists updated, we owe our users a big one. Thanks to their timely reports of missed ads, false positives etc., AdGuard filters are always up-to-date. We want make the process of reporting a website easy for users and informative for filter developers, that’s why we decided to integrate AdGuard for Windows with a special web reporting tool.

When you see any problem like missed ad or annoyance, click on the Assistant icon and choose “Report this website”. You will be taken to a new page and asked to fill in some information about your AdGuard settings and the nature of the problem. Good thing is that AdGuard pre-fills most of the fields automatically, so most of the job is already done for you :)

We hope this change will strengthen the feedback from our users and allow AdGuard filters to stay at the cutting edge of ad blocking technology.

[Changed] Localizations have been updated
[Fixed] Userscript is not injected
[Fixed] Problematic userscript prevents others from working
This beta version has a strong emphasis on extensions handling. Besides the re-introduction of AdGuard PopupBlocker userscript (that has been improved a good amount, by the way), we have changed the way we handle external userscripts. AdGuard Assistant and the integration mode of AdGuard Browser extension have been shown some love too.

That’s not the only news, of course. Four new localizations have been added, and then all the usual suspects: bugfixes, compatibility issues, minor UI tweaks.

[Added] AdGuard PopupBlocker extension v2.1

For quite a while now, AdGuard works as a userscript manager — you can install any script via AdGuard to use it in any browser. PopupBlocker has always been one of the 'native' userscripts that are installed by default, alongside AdGuard Assistant. Its purpose is clear — to block any unwanted pop-ups.

Previous version (v1.0) was functional but very little beyond that. We have completely redesigned the PopupBlocker. It now has advanced pop-up detection, compared to its predecessor and its alternatives, restores the initial click behavior and is invisible to other scripts. All in all, new PopupBlocker is a solid addition to your online protection suite.

By the way, it is available as a standalone script that can be used on its own with any other userscript manager. To find more information about PopupBlocker, visit its GitHub repository.

[Changed] The way AdGuard handles userscripts

A lot of effort has been put into improving (better to say, rethinking) the way AdGuard works with userscripts. This actually has two different aspects:

First, from now on, the communication between AdGuard and Assistant is based on WebSocket, which results in better performance. This is also perfectly applicable to AdGuard Browser extension, when it is working in the integration mode with AdGuard for Windows.

Second, we have taken a whole complex of measures that allow for any external userscripts that you install via AdGuard to show higher speed and execution stability.

[Added] New localizations

Thanks to volunteers who continuosly do an amazing job translating AdGuard into other languages, we were able to add even more localizations, such as:


- Arabic
- Bulgarian
- Danish
- Persian

Other languages localizations have been updated too.

One more beta version before we are ready to present a release candidate. The biggest functionality change in this version is the new option to create custom filters which are not tied to any local file or URL - you will find more in the description.

Ad blocking

[Added] An option to create custom filters not backed with a file

In addition to the usual option of adding any list by URL or loading it from a local file, you can now create independent new filters from scratch. It is possible to create several such filters, give each of them their own name and fill with any rules. As a result, you can create a set of specified filters which can be separately enabled, disabled and edited.

New Adguard for Windows beta version is at the doorstep. Of the new additions worth highlighting is the integration with Windows 10 Notification center - find the details below. We have also paid a lot of attention to the UI - bugs fixing and general improvements.

[Added] Integration with Windows 10 notifications center

Many Windows 10 users find the Notification center to be helpful when it comes to tracking the activity of their apps. We have finally decided to take advantage of it and integrated Adguard with the center. Adguard has a surprisingly decent amount of various notifications. Just to name a few: notifications related to the license/trial period, automatic filter activations, new rules in User filter, Safebrowsing triggers, update checks results, etc. If you use Windows 10, you'll be able to find them all in one place now, thus making it much easier to keep up with what's going on with Adguard.

In this beta version, we mainly concentrated on the UI changes, as we go on with tweaking the Filtering Log interface. A couple of other notable tasks here as well, for example, the addition of a complete 'Exit Adguard' functionality.

[Improved] A complete "Exit Adguard" functionality was added

Now users have a choice between closing Adguard as they usually do, and closing it completely. That means closing the Windows service as well as UI, and when UI is getting started again, the service will start as well (you may be asked for the admin privileges, though).

Ad Blocking

[Fixed] Notification API isn't blocked properly
[Fixed] $replace rules are applied to HTTPS sites even when HTTPS filtering is disabled

UI

UPD: hotfix update. Version 6.2.356.1877 brings a fix for issue #1718, sometimes it was not possible to save new Assistant's size and location settings.

After the last beta version, we have received a ton of remarks from our users, mostly about the new filtering log. It was somewhat expected, as the changes were many and it's hard to hit the nail on the head on the first try. So in this update, we address a lot of these problems (not all of them - it's a work in progress) and introduce the first iteration of the new Adguard Assistant.

Adguard Assistant

The first step towards the new Assistant has been made. In fact, we plan to do a lot of new stuff with Assistant, so we decided to allocate it a separate GitHub repository: https://github.com/AdguardTeam/AdguardAssistant/
The Assistant-related tasks are going to be moved there and by the release of Assistant v4.0, it will become a fully operational repository.

By the way, you may notice that the 'Report website' button currently leads to GitHub. This is a temporary measure; it is not convenient for a casual user, and we will implement a special report collector for this purpose.

What's done already? The biggest change is the ability to drag the Assistant icon across the page and place it wherever you see fit. Moreover, Adguard will remember the position of the Assistant icon for each website separately, so you can really customize it according to your taste and preferences.

The Assistant interface overall has become smaller but retained full functionality compared to earlier versions. There is even one new feature: a switch for toggling the filtering on the website on and off. Previously, the Assistant wasn't shown on websites with disabled filtering, and you had to go to User filter to enable it back.

Oh, and you can help us translate the Assistant! Anyone can volunteer, just visit adguard.oneskyapp.com.

This is a first beta showcasing some of the most important changes to be added in Adguard 6.2: new Filtering log and Filter editor, an option to export/import settings and more.

## UI

[Changed] Filtering log rework

We know for certain that quite a few of our users are actively using filtering log - both for creating new custom rules and generally knowing what's going on. So why not help them a bit? It has undergone a major renovation. New filtering log overlaps with Filter editor a great bit, for example, you can create new rules and unblock blocked requests right from the filtering log.

There are more details to see about each request, too. The request details dialog window is very reminiscent of the Developer tools in Chrome browser. All in all, the new filtering log is much more than a simple list of which requests are blocked and which are not.

[Improved] Search criteria in the filtering log were extended

[Changed] Filter editor rework

Filter editor has also changed for the best. The addition of an 'Edit mode' allows replacing the data grid with a text area. This lets you copy/paste/delete many rules at once without having to bother with export/import.

Basic hotkeys are now available, which will speed up the process of working with the filter editor. There are many other quality of life changes, especially to the UI, which will draw your attention as soon as you launch the new version.

[Added] An option to disable pop-up text in the Filter editor
[Added] A switch to change the filter list display mode
[Changed] The link to custom rules creation manual is added to the Filter editor

[Added] Settings export/import

A lot of users were asking for this, and we deliver. Now you can save your settings configuration into a file and then use it to set up Adguard on another machine exactly how you prefer. Another implication of this is quickly switching between different settings profiles without having to feverishly click through a dozen of tabs and checkboxes.

[Changed] Network settings moved to a separate settings tab

This one is rather straightforward. Previously, all network settings were crowding inside the 'General settings' tab making it harder to scroll up in down, searching for the one setting you need. Adding a separate first-level tab for made it easier to navigate through the app.

[Added] An option to disable all Adguard popup notifications
[Fixed] Stealth Mode tooltip bugs

## Ad Blocking

[Added] $app modifier support
[Changed] The range of $$ rules was increased
[Changed] The behavior of the ~third-party modifier
[Fixed] Automatic update for disabled filters
[Fixed] Content filtering exception rules behavior
[Fixed] Cosmetic filters are not applied to the pages whitelisted by a $document exception anymore
[Improved] The way $network modifier works

## Networking

[Added] Brotli support
[Changed] SHA1 deprecation process is finished
[Fixed] Several userscripts do not work when installed via Adguard
[Fixed] Requests blocked when HTTPS filtering is disabled aren't present in the filtering log

## Other

[Added] Adguard French filter
[Changed] Several browsers and apps were added to the list of apps filtered by default,
[Changed] 'Adblock Protector' added to the list of filters available by default
[Added] $network basic rules modifier to solve the issue with loading ads through WebRTC

This modifier serves to block initial level requests to selected IPs. It can be used by custom rules creators in cases when STUN servers are used for loading ads.

[Fixed] Routers pages access issue

Some routers' interfaces were not accessible with enabled Adguard after the latest beta update. New version fixes this problem.

[Improved] The way we respond to HTTP protocol violation

It would take too long to explain technical nuances, but effectively this fixes the problem some users might have come across before: when you try to open a page and it is downloaded as a file instead.

[Changed] HTTPS exceptions list is updated
This is a hotfix for the recent beta update, containing only one, but major fix:

[Fixed] DNS requests are blocked when KIS 2017 is installed

One of the changes made in the latest beta ended up blocking DNS requests when KIS 2017 is installed, which effectively means no Internet access. New build fixes this problem.
The first beta of the new year features one much-awaited change and a lot of other, less impactful ones. This change is, of course, the new WFP driver. Read on to find out what consequences it will have. Other changes are either technical or minor. Several bugs were fixed, which will improve overall filtering quality.

### Networking

[Improved] WFP driver was updated to fix compatibility issues with KIS and ESET

Previously, it was not unusual at all that Adguard would have compatibility issues with some antiviruses, and KIS and ESET being the most common ones. The workarounds existed but were far from ideal - you had had to sacrifice some parts of functionality on either Adguard or antivirus side. With updated WFP driver these conflicts will be no more, allowing users to run Adguard alongside with KIS and ESET.

[Fixed] $popup rule bug
[Fixed] QUIC protocol issue when KIS is installed
[Fixed] Ads are loaded through WebRTC with STUN protocol
[Fixed] 'Disable Fast Open' setting doesn't work in latest Insider Preview builds
[Fixed] Several issues in Firefox with the default value of 'Hide you user-agent' setting
[Improved] Userscripts are used dynamically now

### Ad Blocking

[Changed] Extra Steam executables removed from the list of filtered apps
[Fixed] Invalid executable for CentBrower
[Fixed] $replace rules aren't applied to .m3u8 files content
[Fixed] Regular expressions with $ aren't processed properly

### UI

[Added] A new advanced settings property to change the injection method - local or remote
[Changed] Version history link in about section
[Changed] Parental Control password protection is made separate for different Windows user accounts

### Other

[Changed] Opera Neon browser added to the list of filtered apps
[Changed] Orbitum browser added to the list of filtered apps
[Changed] The displayed year is updated to 2017 everywhere

This version should be considered as a revision of the Adguard for Windows 6.1 release. This is why you will not spot many 'major' changes - mostly bugfixes, small changes, improvements etc. More drastic changes will come eventually with 6.2 version.

Ad Blocking

[Added] $important modifier #1312

This new addition is an important one (no pun intended), but mostly relevant for creators of custom filter rules. With it's help you can give certain rules higher priority.

  • [Improved] Adguard styles are now protected from removing #1272
  • [Improved] Content type detection #1264
  • [Improved] Content injection algorithm was reworked #1099, #1305

UI

[Changed] WOT extension is now disabled by default #1364

Recently, an article was posted in one of the popular technology blogs, claiming that Web of Trust is selling its users' browser history to third-parties. WoT extension is preinstalled in Adguard for Windows, and although it was developed by us and is not sending any of your data to WoT, we can not leave this without a reponse. For this reason we make WoT extension disabled by default in Adguard for Windows. You can read our official stance regarding these news in our blog.

  • [Changed] You can now completely remove WoT extension #1364
  • [Changed] Unnecessary text in 'Import rules' dialog window is removed #1349
  • [Fixed] Filter's name isn't copied with the rest of request details #1318

Many other minor fixes and changes. The full list can be found in descriptions to prior beta versions in our repository on GitHub.

In this release candidate there are only minimal (yet necessary) changes that mostly concern userscripts handling.
An urgent fix for a major IPv6 filtering bug. A couple of other fixes thrown in as well.

[Fixed] Bug preventing Adguard from filtering IPv6

Not much to add here. Accidentally, we have disabled filtering for all IPv6 addresses in the last release candidate. This version fixes this major bug.

[Changed] ALYac app added to the list of apps filtered by default
[Changed] Salam Browser added to the list of apps filtered by default
[Fixed] $replace rule is shown as applied to images
[Fixed] 'access-control-allow-origin' header console error
[Fixed] Adsbypasser and some other userscripts do not work properly
[Improved] HTTPS is now used for safebrowsing service requests
This is a release candidate, so, as it is often true for RCs, pretty much only technical fixes here. Worth noting that we went further with Web of Trust extension and added the option to remove it altogether, and not only disable.

### Networking

[Changed] Loopback IPv6 connections are not filtered now (Visual Studio remote debugging bug)
[Fixed] $replace modifier breaks content charset
[Fixed] "Enable safe search" function in Parental Control breaks Google

### UI

[Fixed] Adguard crashes if you try to close UI while editing a filter rule
New beta fixes several bugs and makes some changes to UI. Also, recent WoT controversy is addressed by making WoT extension disabled by default.

[Changed] WOT extension is now disabled by default

Recently, an article was posted in one of the popular technology blogs ghacks.net, claiming that Web of Trust is selling its users' browser history to third-parties. WoT extension is preinstalled in Adguard for Windows, and although it was developed by us and is not sending any of your data to WoT, we can not leave this without a reponse. For this reason we make WoT extension disabled by default in Adguard for Windows. You can read our official stance regarding these news in our blog blog.adguard.com.

[Fixed] Button size issue on the last step of Adguard wizard
A small beta to add a new modifier and fix some known bugs.

[Added] $important modifier

[Fixed] HTTPS exceptions do not cover subdomains
[Fixed] $replace rule can now be applied along with the other rules

### Networking

[Changed] Proxy mode will use IPv4 address when it is available from now on
[Fixed] Adguard code is injected into a non-HTML document

[Fixed] Inline style can't be applied because it violates the Content Security Policy directive
[Fixed] WFP driver impacting DPC latency

### UI

A hotfix for the yesterday's beta release. A couple of urgent issues were addressed.

[Fixed] "SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE" problem in Firefox
[Fixed] Issue with Proxy mode and IPv6 addresses
We haven't released any beta versions in a while, as it does often happen after a new release. We were monitoring it for any bugs, and quite a few are fixed in this beta. Other changes and improvements are also present, but none of them are really huge enough to deserve a special mention.

### Ad Blocking

[Changed] KMPlayer added to the list of apps filtered by default
[Changed] steamwebhelper.exe added to the list of apps filtered by default
[Changed] PotPlayer added to the list of apps filtered by default

[Fixed] Issue with invalid HTML

[Changed] "Stealth mode" scripts are moved to a file
[Changed] HTTPs exclusions updated
[Changed] 'Search filter' textbox width made fixed
[Fixed] UI issue with right-click paste
[Fixed] Incorrect information about User filter updates
[Fixed] Adguard crashes if you try to close UI while editing a filter rule
[Fixed] HTTPs requests are displayed as HTTP in filtering log

[Fixed] Incorrect Adguard injection
[Fixed] SaveFrom.net userscript does not work in Adguard
[Fixed] Userscript '@match' rule does not support '<all_urls>' pattern
[Fixed] Issues with several userscripts
[Fixed] Adsbypasser bug on openload.co
[Fixed] Some rules were not converted properly
[Improved] Selection style in settings was made more readable
In this release candidate we offer only one change, but quite important and useful change it is.

[Added] :matches-css-* pseudo-class support

This pseudo-class allows to select any element by its style. Why do we need it? Some websites use a very complicated layout to circumvent ad blocking (one of the best examples is mail.yandex.ru). Ad layout is completely similar to the valid elements aside of the Ad label which is added with a ::before pseudo-element. With this new pseudo-class such ad element can be selected and, therefore, blocked.
The last release candidate showed the need for some honing, so here's another one. The most important problem we address here is the incorrect handling of some userscripts.

[Changed] Adguard won't see modern apps
[Fixed] Assistant is not working on online-freebee.net
[Fixed] Extended css rules change requires protection restart to be applied
[Fixed] Bug preventing some userscripts from working properly
We made you wait for a while before releasing another release candidate. It is mostly because we were working on a very important addition: extended selectors support. You can read below what is so crucial about it, along with the rest of the changelod.

[Added] Support for extended selectors

This is a technical term, but what hides behind it? With extended selectors support, we can much more easily create some rules that were very, very hard to create earlier. Notably, this concerns rules required to block such things as 'Sponsored posts' on Facebook.

[Fixed] Hebrew localization mistakes
[Fixed] Unicode symbols are broken in javascript rules
[Fixed] Multiple Adguard.Tools.exe issue
[Fixed] Grammarly plugin compatibility issue
[Fixed] HTTPS requests are displayed as HTTP in Filtering log
[Fixed] Incorrect userscript auto-detection
Only two days passed since the last beta update, and everything seems to be fine with it. It means that today we are ready to publish a release candidate. Release candidates don't often come with a big changelog, and this RC is not an exception.

[Changed] Default Assistant icon placement adjustment on vk.com
[Fixed] Adguard Assistant compatibility issue with Opera dev
[Fixed] License screen issue in Russian localization
This beta doesn't feature any new additions or standout changes. Rather just a bunch of various fixes and improvements. Overall, though, they present a basis for a release candidate, which will come soon if nothing goes wrong with this beta.

### Ad blocking

[Changed] List of stealth mode settings enabled by default
[Improved] Changed $empty modifier behavior
[Improved] Added support for the :style pseudo class syntax

### UI

[Added] Hebrew localization
[Added] "Versions history" link on the "About" screen
[Fixed] Extra dialog window pops up when you select 'Debug' logging level

### Networking

[Changed] SHA-1 deprecation rules are not being used on Windows XP anymore
[Changed] Browser cache suppressing algorithm on filters change
[Fixed] Router page loading indefinitely
[Fixed] Adguard misinterprets greasemonkey/tampermonkey update checks
[Improved] "Do not filter websites with EV certificates" feature

### Minor

[Changed] Facebook and Facebook Messenger UWP apps excluded from filtering
[Changed] HAL app added to the list of filtered by default
[Fixed] An empty 'C:\Performix LLC' folder is created
[Fixed] Adguard update error
During last beta update, one big mistake slipped in. Upon the update, 'Advnaced settings' had a chance to completely disappear. This hotfix negates this problem.
This beta features one addition to settings screen (userscript handling), along with a bunch of networking fixes and minor issues.

[Added] Userscripts handling

We adopted a new way of handling user.js (userscript) files. Now Adguard will automatically detect when user.js file was processed. If it is a valid userscript, Adguard will open a dialog window, offering user to install it. Of course, this setting will be optional and possible to turn off through settings.

### Networking

[Fixed] Push API feature messes with Facebook comments and chat
[Fixed] Enabling 'Block WebRTC' in Stealth Mode breaks Web Audio API
[Fixed] An issue with hanged connections
[Fixed] Adguard assistant doesn't work in 'Avast safezone' browser
[Improved] Network SDK was updated

### Minor

[Changed] sbrf.ru added to https exclusions
[Fixed] Crash on tray icon click
[Fixed] Adguard is not injected on epidemz.com
[Fixed] Assistant is not working on mts.ru
[Fixed] packagecontrol.io issue
This beta introduces 'Advanced settings' section along with other, more minor changes.

[Added] 'Advanced' settings window

Our Adguard for Android users are already familiar with the concept of Advanced settings. We include there settings which, in our opinion, should not be changed by regular users, but only by experienced users, or after a conversation with our support team. This beta introduces Advanced setting for Adguard for Windows. It doesn't offer a plethora of different settings yet, but will be supplemented with more in future releases.

[Fixed] Adguard creates temporary HTTPS exceptions randomly

UI

Hello everyone!

This is the first beta version after the release of v.6.0.226. It covers all its shortcomings and adds several new features, that mostly concern Stealth Mode. We will describe them below.

### Stealth Mode

[Added] "Self destructing cookies" option in Stealth Mode

Previously Stealth Mode module provided only the option to completely block third-party cookies. Now you will not only have an ability to differ first- and third-party cookies, but also the ability to set the exact time which cookies will be kept alive for. Important note: you can still block cookies alltogether, just set the keep-alive time to '0'.

[Added] Added an option to block "Browser location API"
[Added] Added an option to block "Browser notifications API"

Normally browsers may detect your location and use this information to prioritize specific search results or make other various suggestions based on it. With browser location API blocked this will be impossible.
Blocking browser notifications API feature works somewhat similar, but rather prevents browser from showing things like news or social media frames that pop-up in the corner of your browser.

[Added] A possibility to set IP used to mask your real IP by "Hide IP" feature
[Changed] Default user agent to use when User Agent string field is empty

### Userscripts

[Improved] Content injection algorithm

We completely redesigned content injection algorithm. First and foremost, this should solve issues with document-start scripts, resolve some of the known conflicts (AdsBypasser, YouTube+), and also optimize usage of scripts and ad blocker styles. Overall, a technical, but very important change.

### Ad blocking

[Improved] Increase content filtering rules maximum length limit
[Fixed] Issue with adding localhost to parental control whitelist
[Fixed] Gmail issue when selecting element to block

### Networking

[Fixed] Adguard fails to detect HTML on some websites
[Fixed] Adguard 'Page is unavailable' error screen bug

### UI

[Added] Drag&Drop support for Filtered Apps
[Added] "Whitelisted" filter to the filtering log
[Changed] "Browse for executable" button moved to the filtered apps section
[Changed] Links to EULA and privacy policy added to "About" view
[Changed] Localizations were updated
[Fixed] Tooltip positioning problem
[Fixed] Adguard shows all filtered apps after adding a new one to the list
[Fixed] Adguard GUI starts with a system despite this option is disabled
[Fixed] "Clear" button is absent while there are only spaces entered in search string
[Fixed] User filter takes too much time to delete rules from it
[Fixed] Adguard recognizes UC browser only if it's launched
[Fixed] Adguard crashes when you search for something in 'Settings' and switch tabs
[Fixed] Chrome x64 installation is not detected
[Fixed] Firefox Nightly installation is not detected

### Install/Update

[Improved] Installation is not allowed to start when another installation is in progress
[Changed] Filters update check scheduled right after adding a new filter

### Minor

[Changed] Add `upload.my.mail.ru` to HTTPS exclusions
[Changed] Added GOM Player to the list of of apps filtered by default
[Changed] Added Telecom 7 browser to the list of apps filtered by default
[Changed] Added "BitComet" to the list of apps filtered by default

[Changed] Add more modern UI apps to be filtered by default
[Fixed] Uploading video to my.mail.ru is broken by HTTPS filtering
[Fixed] Incorrect blocking rule in Filtering Log
[Fixed] FileWatcher does not work properly when filter file is replaced, not just modified
[Fixed] 'Proceed anyway' button doesn't work

[Fixed] Uninstall utility does not remove UI settings folder
[Fixed] Problem with uninstalling Adguard
[Fixed] Random language change after updating from 5.10 to 6.0
[Fixed] Custom filter contains "enabled" empty rules
This version is a release candidate. It is a small update where we basically clean up some leftover bugs and defects from the last beta. Nothing too serious, just some things that need to be done before releasing a stable version.

UI changes

[Changed] Adguard window is now opened with a single click on tray menu #1030

Ad Blocker

[Changed] $replace rules should now have higher priority than other basic rules #1023
[Fixed] $domain modifier now works for WebSocket connections #998

Networking

[Added] Support for HTTP method REPORT #1020
[Fixed] Issue with unexpected connection reset with TDI driver #1025
This beta release serves mostly as a bug-fixer, with a couple of exceptions. We know that our users want to see more new cool features and less small technical changes, but they are necessary, especially since this version is a release candidate for R2. We promise, if this time there are no new bugs, we will get to 'real' stuff after the release :) The most notable changes in this beta are slightly new WFP network driver, which will hopefully fix some compatibility and stability issues, and adding of a $stealth modifier, which is explained in detail below.

UI changes
[Changed] Adguard uses native-style tray menu now

Ad Blocker
[Improved] Added $stealth modifier that disables Stealth Mode for the specified website

As we already mentioned in our blog (https://blog.adguard.com/en/news/improved-stealth-mode-module-for-adguard-for-windows.html), separate whitelist for Stealth Mode is on our roadmap. It is a much needed feature for anyone who actively uses Stealth Mode. We are not quite there yet, but we made a big step in the right direction by implementing $stealth modifier. It works similar to all other modifiers, just add it to any exception rule and it will disable Stealth Mode for that website specifically, even if the module itself is enabled. For example: @@||example.org^$stealth
You can find more information about rules formatting on our website: adguard.com/filterrules.html

[Fixed] Adguard does not try to filter data: URLs any more
[Fixed] $domain modifier now does work for blocking WebSocket connections
[Fixed] Adguard now doesn't ignore <base> tag href attribute while constructing absolute URL

Languages and Translations
[Added] Croatian language

Install/Update
[Fixed] An issue when update errors were shown as valid updates in tray notification
[Fixed] Adguard now detects Chrome in 'Filtered apps' on Windows 10 insider build

### [Fixed] Adguard can now detect HTML if there is an xml declaration at the document start
[Fixed] ESET compatibility issue when Chrome browser would randomly hang
This beta release is mostly about network-level changes and overall stability. We hope some of the old bugs will be fixed with it, such as ones caused by lack of content detection and flaws in our WFP network driver. Also we would like to draw your attention to some big changes concerning localisation. Below you can find more details.

UI

[Fixed] 'About' window content is not flickering anymore #954
[Fixed] Empty strings are now removed when importing user filter #973
[Fixed] Error previously encountered while installing a userstyle #934
[Improved] Proxy name validator now recognizes domain names and not only IP addresses #931

Networking

[Improved] HTML content detection #855
Content type detection was significantly improved. This effectively means that Adguard will not interfere with those types of traffic which do not require filtering, decreasing the number of potential conflicts.

[Fixed] Web interface of TP-Link router is broken #844
Some of our users encountered problems with accessing TP-Link routers' interface with enabled Adguard. Upon investigating this issue we discovered a serious issue with WFP driver which resulted in problems with displaying some websites. As a result, we have improved communication with some specific web-servers.

[Fixed] Data is now read to end after blocking a POST request #916

Ad Blocking

[Changed] Facebook windows app added to default filtered apps list #974
[Fixed] Error previously encountered while parsing a style tag with embedded svg #977
[Fixed] Language-specific filters are now detected properly from users keyboard layouts #401
[Improved] Adguard now can process websites names in punycode when adding them to HTTPS exclusions #962

Languages & Translations

[Added] Support for complex language codes #808
We have completely reworked applications localization system. This allowed us to significantly increase number of languages we can potentially support (this mostly concerns various dialects, alternative alphabets etc.).

Install/Update

[Fixed] Blank dialog while updating from 5.10 to 6.0 #924
[Fixed] CMD window is no more shown on Adguard update #935
[Fixed] Issues in Windows 10 Insider Preview build caused by SHA-1 certificate used for network drivers.

Let us stop at this one, since this change stands out as a most important one in this update. Recently we have noticed, with the invaluable help of our beta testers, that SHA-1 certificate previously used to sign our network drivers, was in a process of being deprecated. Effectively this means that users of Windows 10 Insider Preview were not able to enable protection. Our developers had to spend quite a lot of their free time on this weekend signing the drivers with new certificates, we hope their sacrifice wasn't in vain and now the problem is gone :)

[Fixed] 'Filtered apps' list now shows all apps correctly
[Improved] Default HTTPs exclusions list was significantly updated
[Fixed] AG code is no more injected into <noscript>
[Fixed] 'Upgrade license' notification is no more shown for licenses activated with beta key
[Fixed] Pressing Alt-F4 while in Adguard tray menu will no longer result in closing the main window

[Fixed] WebRTC will no more be blocked for applications which are not in the Filtered Apps list

  • [Changed] Auto update mechanism https://github.com/AdguardTeam/AdguardForWindows/issues/835
  • [Changed] Email message validation in support section https://github.com/AdguardTeam/AdguardForWindows/issues/851

  • [Fixed] Adguard beta won't update after clicking on 'Install' button in 'About' section https://github.com/AdguardTeam/AdguardForWindows/issues/648

Besides all of the above, we have developed a new tool - Adguard uninstaller. It is meant to help users avoid many inconveniences in some special cases where regular uninstall doesn't work for some reason. We'd like to put an emphasis on it being only in test mode so far, this is why all your feedback regarding it is super important.

If this RC is ok, then it will be the last RC before the actual release.

Short list of important changes: greatly reduced memory usage, we introduced convenient addition of new ad filters, integration with WoT is now a separate extension, added support for new browsers, fixed conflicts with popular programs and defects in the processing of requests and more.

Memory usage reduction

We have significantly optimized memory usage in 5.10. Now, even if you use an old computer or a weak netbook, Adguard will work silently in a background without slowing down your device. We compared memory footprint with the one of the preceding version. And we must say 5.10 showed a result several times lower.

More ad filters

In addition, Adguard has became an even more comprehensive program. Now users can install any ad filters. What does it mean? In addition to the filters that are already installed in Adguard by default, you can add third-party ones, such as a list of filters that allow Adguard to block ads in different segments of the Internet - websites in different languages, in particular. All of this can be done directly in the program, simply by selecting a filter you want and clicking on the "Add selected" button.

Displaying the possible danger

Integration with Web of Trust is now brought out in the separate extension, which can be disabled. Also a warning when visiting a suspicious website has changed. With the help of WoT, our Adguard is able to notify you instantly about the reputation of websites and show the reasons for which the site is considered to be suspicious. "Categories of suspicion" can be, in particular: scam, potentially illegal, misleading claims or unethical, poor customer experience, privacy risks and others.

Other changes in version 5.10:
  • Added support for CSS injection rules. It gives us more flexible options for high-quality elements blocking.
  • Ability to edit the source code of userscripts. Now you can customize any script you like, you can find more about what it is and how to install it here.
  • Updates are checked only for the enabled userscripts.Thus we update only those scripts that you actually use. Why spend the extra traffic?
  • Extensions that do not use external resources are returned to the "default." Now you have the opportunity to reset the extensions and return websites to their original state.
  • Added a configuration of exceptions for secure (HTTPS) sites filtering. Adding https websites to exceptions in order for Adguard to not filter it, used to be impossible.
  • Increased time of filter updates up to 12 hours. Yeah, longer but of better quality.
  • Speeded up the work of extensions (including Youtube Center). Userscripts do not slow down websites now.
Fixed in new version:
  • Fixed conflicts with Visual Studio, Tor Browser, Keepass.

What’s new?

+ Added capability to add known ABP filter subscriptions.
In addition to our own filters, you can now add known ABP subscriptions, such as EasyList and its “subsidiary” filters and others.

+ Massively redesigned work with extensions.
Changed approach to storage of extensions. This will give us the opportunity to add a userscripts edit function in the next beta. Note: Due to this change, the list of extensions will be reset to the state by default after the update.

+ Integration with Web of Trust is separated out to the stand-alone extension that can be disabled.

+ Added support for installing extensions from all known public repositories.
This means that there is no need in giving a link to a userscript itself, a link to its page on the corresponding repository will be enough.
