If you happen to read the release notes of AdGuard for Android on GitHub, you might giggle at the fact that the coming release of v4.0 has become sort of a local meme.
We've been waiting for it passionately and, at times when the release data was delayed, rushed things saying "Well, now it’s definitely the latest version before the Big Release".

Update the AdGuard app and share your impressions with us! We know you are waiting for v4.0, so are we. Trust us, it's worth it.
