It's been two weeks since the last update and it's time for another round of new features and bug fixes!
The big new feature is the web server improvement. It was a long time feature request and it now serves HTTPS pages. That means I can fix the broken resource sad grey icon
that appears instead of ads.
For now, it only supports adsense (Google) ads but I plan to support more ad networks later. (I'll talk to jaws101 to pick the most used.)
For this, I need use a fake self-signed certificate for the server that will match the ad network domain. You need to install it from ad blocker preference screen in order to make you browser accept the web server https responses.
Another nice feature is the sad icon is replaced by a light AdAway icon. It's way better than the sad grey icon but if you prefer having an empty blank space, there is an option for that. (the icon as the blank space will take the space the ad has, no more no less)
There is some other new features, like the "Follow dark theme system settings" to match the system theme.
About bug fixes, I fixed user host list item being remove on source update (sorry!) and I improved (once again) the negative time issue by adding some workaround for time not synced servers.
There is some minor bug fixes about backup, like import error toast wrong label or the duplication of imported hosts.

I deactivate Adaway before and also private DNS like mentioned in the wiki. As the wiki is mainly about the 4.x builds for rooted devices I'm not sure if I'm missing something.
Unlike the root blocking method, you need to have the vpn adblocking enable when logging request. It might need a label to warn users.
