Thanks

If using AdAway in root (hosts) mode, hosts file will block everything that was blacklisted by AdAway. Domains that are not blacklisted by AdAway will be resolved through your (private) DNS that may additionally block or redirect some of them

Hope this info helps someone...

Before being asked, I plan to make the announcement post and update the OP with the next coming beta.
Didn't had time to make it yet.

Kind of a sill question here but if I'm already rooted and have installed adaway and has been working fine, do I really need to restart after applying newer host files through the app itself?

If you have system-less host file then you will need to reboot to see the effects of the newest host file. If you are happy to wait till the next time you reboot normally ie your current filtering is adequate from the previous update, then there is no other reason.

If you are not systemless, then it will depend on your ROM. Others have had it not take effect, but I personally do not have to reboot to have a new host file take effect.

Hi all,

It took me some weeks to get a new working development rig and I'm finally happy with it!
So I could build and deliver not one but two new releases: a stable one and a new beta.
First, the stable release does not contains any improvement other than improving the F-Droid store page but the beta is here to brings a bunch of bug fixes! ^^'
Some really annoying (disabling a source, excluding app from VPN), some to fasten the app (skip up-to-date source) and one about negative source update time...

Otherwise, I'm still struggling about the host sources update.
When it was slower, the UI was working and responsible but users kept complaining it was slow (don't see the problem with a such background task to take its time?).
So I fasten it up and now the UI is not as smooth as the device to do work as fast as possible and can't keep up with the user interaction (so new UI bugs appear).
The beta will never be as fast as the v4 because it does not do the same thing. It takes more precautions when checking host source content and cache it for later purpose.
I will leave it aside until I found what to do with it and focus on the yearly tool and SDK migration...

Changelog 4.3.5:
  • Update F-Droid store page

Changelog 5.0.5:
  • Improve hosts source server handling with future time
  • Improve hosts update by skipping already up-to-date sources
  • Fix hosts source disable action
  • Fix hosts list apply notification from non-user changes
  • Fix user excluded application settings
  • Remove navigation bar color customization
  • Update AndroidX dependencies and NDK version

Thanks:

Special thanks to CobalTitan, ipdev, zgfg and sunmybun their bug reports.

Thanks a lot

- Trying v5.0.5 VPN version and I see that it doesn't anymore parse the up-to-date hosts sources, hence updating takes substantially faster for me when using many hosts sources.
- Also, activating/deactivating some hosts source(s) is now correctly remembered.
- Similarly, it correctly remembers which apps are excluded from VPN

If it proves stable in general,, could it become a legit release candidate?

It should go without saying, but correctness is more important than convenience. If you've made the process as fast as possible without compromising on correctness, then you've done your job, man. Any user complaints beyond that are unreasonable. If someone wishes to improve it further, they can always open a PR.
