    Hello!

    Some words about new features. First and the most important is:
    This is the first Adguard's version with normal multi-language support.

    We had two different versions before (one with russian and one with english language).
    It was really a bad decision, so russian version has been updated frequently while english version stuck on 4.2.2.
    Adguard 5.2 release should fix this once and forever:).

    What problems does this beta-version contains:
    • Help file is not updated yet.
    • Some spelling/grammar mistakes.
    • Some minor bugs, nothing serious.

    So we will be grateful for your comments on any problem, especially if it is some program localization issue:).

    Since this is first Adguard 5 release for english-speaking users, change log contains
    all features since 5.0.

    Change log:
