AdGuard for Windows 7.13 beta 1​

Release date: March 7, 2023

There are many changes and bug fixes in this update, but first we would like to draw your attention to a bunch of new features implemented in the Advanced settings.

We’ve added as many as 17 features which can be divided into 6 groups:
  • Anti DPI options allow low level modifications to be made to packets during filtering to avoid deep packet inspection
  • Keep alive settings allow to configure settings to work with keep-alive connections
  • Filtering exclusion settings allow excluding both Wi-Fi networks and particular subnets (specified in CIDR notation) from DNS filtering
  • Application management option allows to enable filtering even if the app is not launched. The point is that in v7.12 we have changed the behavior of the AdGuardSvc.exe service so that when the service starts automatically once starting OS, it does not filter traffic but stays in a "waiting" state. But we’ve left the option to let AdGuard work "as before" by enabling this option
  • DNS-related options allow to fine-tune the DNS settings
  • Certificate security options allows checking websites and web services certificates by various criteria
What else? Aside from the regular CoreLibs and DnsLibs updates, we’ve updated WFP and TDI drivers and ExtendedCSS. We’ve also allowed to disable the Filter localhost advanced feature. But be aware that disabling this feature will prevent AdGuard Ad Blocker and AdGuard VPN from working simultaneously in compatibility mode.
