    Hello everyone!

    We are finally ready to release second beta version of Adguard 5.10.

    Changelog:

    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 supplementary subscription 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.
    Page with description of repositories: http://adguard.com/userscripts.html


    + Added support for Superbird Browser.

    + Added support for 360 Browser.

    Fixed and changed:

    * Conflict with Keepass.
    * Conflict with Visual Studio (Adguard hindered the debugging).
    * Fixed work of Twitch Chat Filter userscript.
    * Partially fixed conflict with the Tor Browser. HTTP-sites are filtered, HTTPS – are not.

    Probably this change: https://github.com/YePpHa/YouTubeCenter/commit/343b4fdf169a6c300597f97b016f2d621d22a639

    In the meantime I'll use Tampermonkey/Greasemonkey for YTC.

    ---------- Post added at 01:01 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:42 PM ----------

    The widget.banner-square element on Neowin.net isn't being blocked anymore.

    ---------- Post added at 02:32 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:01 PM ----------

    Enabling EasyList might conflict with the Adguard filter lists if both enabled at the same time.

    Thanks for the release. Is there any way to add custom (unlisted) Adblock filter list? I would like to add one from:
    http://adblocklist.org/

    @Petrovic I saw this and its not what I'm taking about. Yes, we can choose additional filters from the list, but we don't have ability to use other filter list (non shown there).
    Example URL:
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/25725152/cookiesblock.txt

    Using Adblock Plus as web browser extension you can subscribe any URL filter list you want.

    looking good. like the expanded filter selection menu i'm spoilt for choice! now on to some observations:

    - seeing a "Filter databases have not been loaded" message on the start page

    [​IMG]

    - misspelling of subscription in the filters subscriptions dialog

    [​IMG]

    also is it right to have it as "filters subscriptions" or can "filter subscriptions" also work ?

    - clicking the "Wiltteri" homepage shortcut in the filter subscriptions dialog leads to a Google search of "wiltteri.net". the proper website, it appears, is

    Code:
    https://github.com/wiltteri/wiltteri
    - anti-adblock killer does not seem to work
    - any url can be input in the "Extension installation" dialog resulting in a successful installation with the url as the extension name and 1.0.0.0 as its version(try it with this thread's url) can confirm that an installation is also successful should you browse to any file renamed to xxxxx.user.js(an image file in my case)

    also not a bug but a suggestion;
    -since the "Adblock Warning Removal List" is part of the Easylist group of filters, wouldn't it make sense to have it appear under EasyList ?
    - shouldn't the homepage link next to the "User filter" entry in the Ad Blocker section load the user filter section of Adguard rather than Adguard's homepage ?

    YouTube Center Developer Version is working again in Adguard (after I reported the issue) if you use 339 or above.

    But...

    I noticed that YouTube Center's settings (I assume local storage or something else) is being saved globally between all browsers, and not for each specific browser like it was doing not too long ago. This can be a problem as I prefer to force HTML5 in Chrome, while forcing Flash in Chromium (due to the lack of H.264 support in Chromium). Same with Firefox and Nightly, I prefer to force Flash for Firefox (until at least FF31) and HTML5 for Nightly. Is this as intended? Is it a bug or an oversight? Is it an issue with the script itself?

    Confirmed!

    Also the Chrome x64 issue still exists with both dev and canary builds. Hopefully 37 x64 goes to beta soon!

    A couple of ads are not collapsing as they did before. I put a red square around them in the screenshot. Note this happens on other pages at Neowin.

    Also, why would I choose to use for example the EasyList subscription over or with your English filter? Are using too many filters not a good thing to do?

    Also, can't check the box for 'Show useful ads".

    Thank you for all these bugs found! We'll release a new version today, fixing cosmetic issues.

    ---------- Post added at 03:13 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:04 PM ----------

    @Boo Berry

    Thank you for YTC dev code review! It was really helpful:)

    ---------- Post added at 03:15 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:13 PM ----------

    Cannot reproduce it, can you give me more details on this issue?
    UPD: ok, I've reproduced it now.

    ---------- Post added at 03:22 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:15 PM ----------

    Not yet.

    Adguard's behavior is slightly different from ABP.
    So the subscriptions you see are served from our servers and transformed for better compatibility.

    ---------- Post added at 03:25 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:22 PM ----------

    It is intended. I think that YTC have been using local storage before and that's why you had different settings in different browsers.
    But now it sees GM_ functions implementations and uses them.

    ---------- Post added at 03:31 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:25 PM ----------

    @rickyoh
    Thank you for the bug reports!:)

    It is developed by EasyList authors but it is not part of EasyList:
    https://adblockplus.org/en/subscriptions

    Good idea, we'll do it:)

    In my previous post I showed a screenshot of ads that were not collapsed at neowin.com. I since 'rediscovered' that this was always the case with AG. Manually blocking these gray boxes with AG does nothing to get rid of them. However, I also run AdBlock Edge along with Element Helper. Using Element Helper I am able to collapse these boxes. Shouldn't the boxes be automatically collapsed by AG in the first place and why does your block element function not collapse them as does Element Helper?

    As far as the problem I reported on the HowToGeek site, this was caused by some filter in Fanboy's Annoyance list. I'm now just using Fanboy's social list.

    Adguard 5.10 now supports CSS injection rules: http://adguard.com/en/filterrules.html#cssInjection
    But it ignores our "workaround" rules (#adg_start_style_inject) which we've used for neowin.

    I've updated English filter, now everything should be ok.

    Not sure if this is a bug or not. I removed the Fanboy's Annoyance List using AG's main menu. However, it still showed up on the filters list using the AG tray icon. Closing AG and restarting it cleared it up.

    *** Edit
    Adding a subscription doesn't make it appear using the AG tray icon.
