Suggestion: Downloading only changed parts of a filter list

Hello.

When updating the filter lists, does ABP download entire lists or only changed parts?
It would be very useful if ABP downloaded only changed parts of the filter list. Diff file (if you understand what I mean).
This would reduce the load on a servers and communication channels.


Thank you.

I second this.
I am using ADP on a vessel with satellite connection and low data allowance.
trying to reduce the amount of traffic by stopping the adds is working very effectively, Until it wants to do an update and uses half the allowance.
Would love to be able to restrict or schedule the updates ( when the vessel is in port and connected to a non metered connection).
Would like to know if this is possible or there are any plans to limit the size of the updates.
