    CoreLibs is the centerpiece of the upcoming AdGuard 2.0 for Mac update, and we've just discovered some minor problems with it. Nonetheless, we consider them important enough to release one more beta to fix these problems before unleashing the new stable version into the world. We've also made a few localization updates.

    Welcome the first AdGuard 2.0 for Mac release candidate! The changes are minimal compared to the recent beta, but there’s one that’s worth your attention: the introduction of AdGuard Extra userscript. By the way, we plan to transition this version into a stable one if everything goes well.

    [Added] AdGuard Extra extension #492

    In some complicated cases, the usual approach with filtering rules just doesn’t work. In particular, in some cases of ad blocker circumvention/ad reinjection. So we came up with an alternative solution — a userscript. For those unfamiliar, userscripts are basically mini programs that modify web pages and augment browsing.

    AdGuard Extra does it in a way that makes it harder for websites to employ the circumvention/reinjection techniques. AdGuard for Mac is the first AdGuard product to get this addition, we are thrilled to see it in action and read your feedback on it.

    [Fixed] Description for “Strip tracking parameters” option #398
    [Fixed] The list of filtered apps gets reset after an update #473
    [Fixed] Vivaldi browser is not filtered #475
    [Fixed] Microsoft Edge browser is not filtered #487
    [Fixed] AdGuard doesn’t start automatically on the system startup #480

    When it comes to AdGuard for Mac, we prefer a steady, even methodical approach. Eliminate all bugs, make sure nothing is left unnoticed. This is one of those betas where we clean everything up: fix bugs, improve some of the features and so on. We’ll let it run for a while, monitor it for anything that resembles a missed bug, and if is all is good, we’ll stick a “2.0 stable” label on it.

    NOTE: if you currently have AdGuard installed to any folder except for /Applications, the old version will launch after the update anyway. In such case you need to close and uninstall the old AdGuard. Users who have AdGuard installed to /Applications already can update as usual.

    [Changed] Developer ID has been changed #460
    Application’s Developer ID has been changed to Adguard Software Limited. This shouldn’t concern you much, but if you are curious why, it’s because of the problem we ran into on Mojave. Basically, all new and updated apps on Mojave now have to be notarized. In the future this will be mandatory for all applications. And part of the notarization process for us was changing the Developer ID.
