    Hello guys!

    Adguard for Mac RC v1.3.3

    We are getting closer and closer to Adguard for Mac release. This means we don't want any, even insignificant bugs and errors left. This is why we are willing to release beta versions with a changelog this small. To be more precise, this is a release candidate - if everything is fine with it, it will become a new release.

    [Fixed] Safebrowsing check algorithm #148
    [Fixed] Unknown pseudo class error #154

    A link to GitHub: https://github.com/AdguardTeam/AdguardForMac/releases/tag/v1.3.3-rc
    Download link: https://github.com/AdguardTeam/AdguardForMac/releases/download/v1.3.3-rc/Adguard-1.3.3.beta.dmg

    Adgurd for Mac beta v1.3.2

    In this small beta we make several changes, which mostly concern networking.

    Ad Blocking

    [Changed] Updated default HTTPS exclusions list #124

    Networking

    [Changed] HTTPS is now used for safebrowsing requests #148
    [Changed] WoSign and StartCom certificates are now distrusted #141
    [Changed] New separate server is used now for filter updates #139
    [Fixed] $replace rules break content charset #147
    [Fixed] Adguard compatibility with Opera built-in VPN #123, #130
    [Improved] Adguard styles are now protected from removal #149

    UI

    [Changed] CMD+Backspace key combination can now be used to delete filters from the filter list #9
    [Fixed] $replace rules are displayed correctly in the filtering log #150

    Adguard for Mac beta v1.3.1

    It was a long while since the last Adguard for Mac update. We hope it was worth waiting, because new beta adds the support for Extended CSS - read below why it is so important. Besides that, an awful lot of other fixes and changes that will reflect positively on the performance.

    Ad blocking

    [Added] Extended CSS support #109, #120

    This is a very important addition in terms of future (and present) possibilities that it opens for ad blocking. Extended CSS is a module for applying CSS styles with extended selection properties. Basically, it means that we will be able to select and, therefore, block some elements that we would not be able to block otherwise. Notably, this concerns such things as 'Sponsored posts' on Facebook.

    [Added] $important modifier #132

    This new addition is an significant one, but mostly relevant for creators of custom filter rules. With it's help you can give certain rules higher priority.

    [Added] $websocket modifier #131
    [Fixed] $empty modifier behaviour #108, #143
    [Fixed] Latin extended symbol in a filter rule interferes with filtering #134
    [Fixed] $replace rule can't be applied along with the other rules #133

    Networking

    [Fixed] Kernel panic issue #106
    [Fixed] Adguard blocks the page from loading if /etc/hosts has incorrect records #111
    [Fixed] Inability to apply inline style #142
    [Fixed] Excessive CPU load #135
    [Improved] Content injection algorithm #119

    UI

    [Added] Hotkeys for filters management #9, #128
    [Changed] "Check filter updates" action moved to settings menu #116
    [Fixed] Incorrect filter is displayed in "Filtering Log" #129
    [Improved] Allowed pasting mulitple rules at once in filter area #126

    We are waiting for your comments!

    Two major issues in 1.3.3 RC;

    1) The Assistant settings reset issue when visiting Outlook occurs in Safari now. I need to downgrade to 1.3.2 and check whether the issue exists in this build too.

    2) Outlook never loads completely in Chrome - again I need to downgrade to 1.3.2 and see if the issue still exists. In fact, I'm noticing a lot of sites aren't fully loading in Chrome when using 1.3.3. After I quit Adguard for Mac, Outlook loads fine in Chrome.

    EDIT: More testing.

    1) Outlook is still broken in Chrome while Adguard for Mac 1.3.2 is enabled.

    2) I can no longer reproduce the Outlook Assistant settings reset in Safari in 1.3.2.

    @Boo Berry are those problems still present for you in v1.4.0?

    I ended up adding @@||outlook.live.com/$jsinject to the user filter, which fixes the issues with Outlook (on Mac and Windows).
