We’re making final touches in our preparation for v2.2 release: a few minor changes and the ever present CoreLibs update. This time, there’s a couple of really important CL changes:

[Added] Scriptlets support

Scriptlets is a powerful ad blocking instrument. You can say that scriptlet is an internal script (a mini-program) that we install with the app, and then execute that script with the help of filtering rules. Putting it simply, scriptlets allow us to modify how the code of the web page behaves. As for the practical use, this helps to block anti-ad blockers, for example, and in some other cases.

[Added] $redirect and $rewrite modifiers support

They are practically the same modifiers, and they allow to substitute resources. If you are not a custom filtering rules aficionado, don't bother with it. Just know that it is yet another instrument in the hands of filter developers that helps to block ads more efficiently.

We should mention that both $redirect and $rewrite modifiers are still kind of working in test mode, but they are fully operational and you should feel free to use them.

It’s time to embark on a quest for the next AdGuard for Mac big update! And our first step is to release this beta: it features added support for custom userscripts and new way to activate AG, but also several bugfixes and other lesser changes.

[Added] Custom userscripts support #11

Userscripts, or “extensions” as we also call them, are highly useful mini-programs that change the behavior of web pages. Every AdGuard for Mac user probably knows about at least some of the extensions added by default, for example, AdGuard Assistant or Popup Blocker.

Now you have an option to add any custom extensions by clicking on the plus symbol in the “Extensions” tab of AdGuard settings window. You are able to load userscripts either from a local file or by URL.

[Added] Option to activate AdGuard by logging into your personal account #588

This is something we’ve already tried with some of the other AdGuard products, and it proved to be a useful addition. Basically, instead of entering a license key directly, you can link your adguard.com personal account to the app by entering the credentials, and AdGuard will automatically get activated if there’s at least one eligible license key in your account.

  • [Added] “Trusted” flag for custom filters #521
  • [Fixed] “Untrusted CA certificate” issue #596
  • [Fixed] Extra “AdGuard Extra” userscripts #607
  • [Fixed] Editing user filter doesn’t work when search box is not empty #569
  • [Improved] Installer icon updated to match the app’s icons #584
  • [Improved] Voiceover accessibility #634
  • [Improved] CoreLibs has been updated to v1.5.99 #635
  • [Improved] Localizations have been updated
