Goodbye development builds · 2020-09-03 00:10 by Sebastian Noack

We are no longer providing signed and updated development builds for Adblock Plus. But if you want to try out the latest features you can use the unsigned builds from GitLab CI, they won’t automatically update and might get disabled as you restart your browser though.
