Blokada 5.8 for Android

This update improves the Networks feature introduced last week, and tested in beta. The detection of current network has been improved, as well as the speed of engine restarts for reconfiguration. Now we consider this feature stable, but please keep your feedback coming if you are using it!

This is mostly a maintenance release, with various small improvements. We did some cleaning in DNS list and updated the blocklists. Please note that for the time being, Blokada for iOS does not have the Network feature. We’ll be assessing the implementation of it on iOS in the coming weeks.
