    Dear Adguard Users!

    We are glad to announce the release of Adguard 5.2 (exact version is 5.2.283.1826)!

    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.

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