Adblock Plus 0.5.8

New Features:
  1. Can hide ads on a per site basis instead of globally. Now an option under Adblock's menu called Support Websites.
  2. The three different versions (text, icon & button) have now been combined.
  3. Added preference (Site Whitelisting) to allow all ads on a site if site's URL matches a white filter.
  4. Added adblock.divcheck preference available in about:config to disable DIV checking.

  1. Fixed Collapse Blocked Elements preference not being respected and it always collapsing.
  2. Fixed ads not being collapsed when using the hide ads option.
  3. When choosing to append imported filter list, duplicates are no longer displayed to make it clear that they are not saved.

Added Locales:
  1. Added the Chinese locale (thanks to Blackdire)
  2. Added the Czechoslavian locale (thanks to Josef)

Known Issues:
  1. Doesn't install on Netscape 8.
  2. Always uses en-US locale on Mozilla, see Bug 216489.
  3. Site blocking doesn't display replacement html page (from official). Temporary fix displays an alert box instead.
  4. When using text or icon, the toolbar button (invisible) can still be dragged from the customize toolbar palette and become visible.
  5. DIVs will intermittently not be listed or blocked using trunk builds, see Bug 300065.
