The main focus of this release was to fix bugs and improve user experience. We performed tough tests and were unable to crash the app! But you can surely fix it, right? 🙂

For starters, we implemented low-level DNS settings, added the Finnish language and updated other translations.

There are not many significant changes in this version but we’ve put our energy into something no less important. We updated CoreLibs and DNSLibs, fixed various issues along the way, and did some magic with the filtering log to make it more user-friendly.

And just between us, we’re going to develop and release a brand new AdGuard for Windows. We bet you’ll find many killer feature there! besides, we plan to bring an extensive redesign to it. So stay tuned, and you’re going to witness the arrival of v8.0!

Why would anyone make you pay for a beta?

AdGuard for Windows version 7.7 RC 2 (beta) from October 7, 2021

In the second release candidate we updated CoreLibs, without it the Internet would turn into a p̶u̶m̶p̶k̶i̶n̶ one big ad. Then we dived into Advanced settings and changed their names and descriptions — now not only developers can relate to what happens in the wilds of low-level settings. And well, the new version features small bug fixes. You can't just release anything without this part, right?

Changelog​

  • [Fixed] ExtendedCSS misbehaves on images.google.com #135
  • [Enhancement] Updated translations
  • [Other] Updated CoreLibs to v1.8.199

How can I access the low-level DNS settings in AdGuard 7.7? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

AdGuard for Windows 7.7.1 Released:
Unfortunately, the larger the update, the more the risk of letting some bugs through. The latest release of AdGuard for Windows exposed several of those so we’re ready with a hotfix. Thanks to all users who sent reports to us — it wouldn’t be possible without your help! As a result, we fixed the bugs that some of you had encountered. For instance, we fixed a network filtering bug that prevented the application from working correctly. We also solved the problem with incorrect work of the tray menu icon. In addition, we slightly redesigned the “Advanced settings” block for easier navigation.

AdGuard for Windows 7.7.2 Released:
We’ve come a long way through bugs thorns to the stars and finally reached the finish line (we hope so!) Many apologies for the last few versions of AdGuard for Windows: they had to be really good, but something went wrong. In one week since the last release, with your help we have found and fixed several disappointing flaws, as well as bugs in the application drivers, which turned out to be the main issue of v7.7.1. And of course we’ve updated CoreLibs — it couldn't happen any other way!
Changelog
  • [Fixed] Driver installation failed on v7.7.1 #3986
  • [Fixed] New tab in Edge is broken when AdGuard is on #1541
  • [Other] Update CoreLibs to v1.8.240 #3996
