in openwrt package trunk you'll find an updated adblock package (plus LuCI companion/configuration package).
support of 21 domain blacklist sites
zero-conf like automatic installation & setup
simple but yet powerful adblock engine: adblock does not use error prone external iptables rulesets, http pixel server instances and things like that
full IPv4 and IPv6 support
supports a wide range of router modes, even AP modes are supported
support different download tools like wget (default), aria2c, uclient-fetch, curl
each blocklist source will be updated and processed separately
overall duplicate removal in separate adblock lists
adblock source list parsing by fast & flexible regex rulesets
additional white- and blacklist support for manual overrides
quality checks during & after update of adblock lists to ensure a reliable dnsmasq service
procd based init system support (start/stop/restart/reload/suspend/resume)
procd based hotplug support, the adblock start will be triggered by interface triggers
suspend & resume adblock actions temporarily without block list reloading
query function to quickly identify blocked (sub-)domains, i.e. for whitelisting
automatic block list backup & restore, backups will be (de-)compressed and restored on the fly
add new adblock sources on your own via uci config
LuCI configuration frontend (provided by hnyman)
add initial unbound support (experimental, see online doc)
automatically switch between wget & uclient-fetch
automatically selects dnsmasq or unbound as dns backend
add the new 'adguard' source, a combined/quite effective block list
many improvements & fixes
add tld compression ("top level domain compression")
The new "top level domain compression" removes up to 40 thousand needless host entries from the block lists and lowers the memory footprint for the dns backends by 8-10 MByte.

A big 'thank you' to all beta testers and a special one to Hannu Nyman for his great adblock LuCI frontend!
