ublock v1.28.0

gorhill released this

Jun 30, 2020

Changes:

##script:inject(...), which has been deprecated in favor of ##+js(...) for more than two years, is no longer supported.

It's no longer possible to point-and-click to create allow (green) rules from within the popup panel by default. This change is motivated by seeing way too many cases of improper usage of dynamic filtering in which users are creating allow (green) rules where noop (gray) rules should have been used. You can get back temporarily the ability to create allow rules from within the popup panel by tapping twice the Ctrl key.

Improved syntax highlighting of static filters in "My filters" and asset viewer. Additionally, in "My filters":

  • Ability to toggle commenting out of filter(s) by pressing the Tab key
  • Auto-completion using Ctrl-Space, this works for:
    • Static filter options
    • Resource names for redirect= option
    • Procedural operators for cosmetic/HTML filters
    • Scriptlet names for ##+js filters

ublock v1.28.2

gorhill released this

Jul 11, 2020

Changes:

Both stock malware domain lists, which are enabled by default in uBO, have been replaced by URLhaus Malicious URL blocklist, which is now enabled by default in uBO.

For existing installations, both removed malware lists will be moved to the Custom section if you still have them enabled. It is recommended you remove these lists from your Custom lists -- only you can do this, uBO does not remove lists which are currently enabled. It may take a few days before you are updated with the new default stock lists.

ublock v1.30.0

gorhill released this

4 days ago

Summary

Important: The compile format of filter lists has changed, and this means upon update uBO will have to recompile all filter lists, so this may cause a longer delay at launch the first time uBO is launched after being updated. This is a one time event.

The cloud storage feature has been improved in a number of ways:

  • Better reporting of error conditions in the user interface;
  • User interface widget to report storage used/total/max;
  • Support for compressing cloud storage data.

Improved "My rules" user interface:

  • Ability to sort rules by type, source, or destination;
  • Ability to show changes only.

Added support to chain :style(...) operator to procedural operators.

The element picker has been refactored to fix long standing issues (including some not reported in the issue tracker). The Ctrl key is no longer used to control the specificity of a candidate filter, and new widgets have been introduced for the purpose of more easily tuning the depth and specificity.

The click-to-subscribe feature has been reworked and is now allowed only on a select number of domains, currently: https://easylist.to/, https://fanboy.co.nz/, https://filterlists.com/, https://forums.lanik.us/, https://github.com/, https://github.io/.

The concept of "bad list" has been introduced, to prevent users from unwittingly end up using what are deemed "bad lists" by the uBO team. Some "bad lists" will be completely ignored and importing them will be forbidden by uBO. This restriction can be bypassed by users by simply appending a dummy query parameter to the URL of the list.

ublock v1.30.10

gorhill released this

Nov 16, 2020

Not for publication: this release exists strictly as reference point for future releases of uBO for development purpose.

The built-in benchmark of the static network filtering engine has been fine tuned such that the benchmark results in the current iteration can be used as reference against future versions of uBO.

ublock v1.31.0

gorhill released this

Nov 17, 2020

Notes

The format of compiled filter lists has changed, this means that when you will be updated to 1.31.0, uBO will have to parse and compile all your enabled filter lists, which may cause larger than usual delay at first launch following update to 1.31.0. This is a one time event.

New:

Click-to-load

Support to replace embedded frames with a click-to-load widget. Examples of usage:

||youtube.com/embed/$3p,frame,redirect=click2load.html
||scribd.com/embeds/$3p,frame,redirect=click2load.html
||player.vimeo.com/video/$3p,frame,redirect=click2load.html

Result:

Embedded Youtube video

Users of medium mode can experiment with a redirect rule to reveal embedded frames in a page:

*$3p,frame,redirect-rule=click2load.html

Or if you want to have click-to-load only for embedded widgets from specific origins being blocked (reminder: redirect-rule does not create a block filter):

 ||youtube.com/embed/$3p,frame,redirect-rule=click2load.html

Changes:

Resources redirected to local, neutered versions will no longer be collapsed as would occur if those resources were only blocked. This change is to enable implementation of the new click-to-load feature.

Cloud storage compression is now enabled by default.

Interactivity for the no-large-media-elements switch has been improved. Notably, when the switch is enabled, uBO will try to stop playback of blob:-based media elements.
