    Change log here.

    The newest version is payware. After trial period it will change to standard version, that is free and to me is enough.

    Using it for some years ago.

    Yes. Standard version filter lists can be 4-6 weeks older compared to the Professional Edition.

    Yes. Trial mode uses the same filter lists as the Standard version.

    So the trial version actually it's not a real trial version of AdFender Pro, it is AdFender [semi] Pro.....

    You have to inform the users in advance about it, imo.
    Because FAQ says something else=

    Installed the newest v. 2.10 and trying it.
    It seems it overcome some annoyances that I had in oldest versions - specially with the filters accurate loading.
    This last v. is working like a charm and is very easy to manage.
    Developer is doing an excellent work with this application - and thanks for that!

    Thank you! Please note that if you make changes to the list of enabled filter lists, you will have to restart AdFender for the changes to take effect. This is a regression bug and will be fixed in our next release.

    @AdFender Do you think you will accept volunteer translations once multi-language support is ready?
