Description (last modified by trev)


In order to simplify the Emscripten implementation in #4128, we should change the current parsing and serialization logic.

What to change

  • Have exportData save subscriptions first and filters then. The current parsing code doesn't care due to our filter caching policy (a.k.a. memory leak), with Emscripten we will save an unnecessary reference to the filters when parsing.
  • Stop parsing [User patterns], [Pattern] and [Subscription patterns] sections, we stopped writing those a long time ago (around Adblock Plus 0.7).
  • Remove special treatment of ~fl~ and similar groups (again, this is compatibility with Adblock Plus 0.7 era).
  • Remove silent parameter from FilterStorage.addFilter(), FilterStorage.addSubscription() and FilterStorage.removeSubscription() - only the former was still being used, and the last usage of that parameter is being removed now.
  • Bump formatVersion property.
