    I just wonder how you would manage making exceptions in real-time if it is blocking something important like functionality for a webpage you are taking exams on. Maybe you have to make all exceptions in advance, but that would be very difficult to do in my case.

    Here's a first comparison with Pi-hole. Right now I'm not yet ready to make the move to AdGuard Home as Pi-hole works very well for me. But if it gets further improvements ... who knows?

    New Release: Windows binaries are now available, built-in DHCP server, and more changes...
    AdGuard Home v0.92 Released (December 30, 2018)
    Download
    Looks like Santa hid some late presents under the tree!
    What could be a better time to publish some new hot stuff than the day before New Year's Eve? Jokes aside, we prepared some cool things for you, and we would like to share it before the year ends. So, let's unpack AdGuard Home v0.92 and see what's inside!

    Reworked DNS server: #450
    From the very beginning, AdGuard Home was using CoreDNS under the hood. It is an excellent and flexible DNS server, but time showed that it's a bit too complicated and heavy for the purposes of our product, and that was slowing us down considerably.

    We chose to develop our own simple DNS server which might not be as flexible as CoreDNS, but it perfectly fits our needs. We called it dnsproxy and, by the way, you can use it in your own open source projects.

    Windows binaries: #375
    Another issue that was quite hard to solve with CoreDNS is that we couldn't make AdGuard Home work on Windows. Well, this is not a problem anymore! Meet Windows build, finally!

    DNSCrypt support: #284
    AdGuard Home now supports every possible DNS encryption protocol, isn't that cool?

    In order to use a DNSCrypt resolver, you need to specify its DNS stamp. And here you can find a list of public secure DNS resolvers, with their DNS stamps.

    Built-in DHCP server: #423
    Not every router allows changing its DHCP/DNS settings so we had to provide an alternative. AdGuard Home can now act as a DHCP server and define itself as the network's DNS server.

    This feature is experimental! We have not yet fully tested it so it might be unstable. Also, it does not work on Windows.

    Besides these new features, here is a full list of other bugs and issues resolved in this release.

    Happy New Year, everyone!

    @avatar It's great to see this on Windows platform now as well.

    Is there any plans to have this Adguard Home work on OpenWrt distro/platform for home routers?

    Of course, it would need to be devices with a decent amount of RAM and possibly a USB storage device added. But this would be great.
