Thanks for everyone who has been donating (or supporting us through other means). We are happy to release the latest version of Pi-hole. How To Update Until we get Py-hole up and running, just use our weird, quirky method of running the installer again (an actual updater is coming at some point):
Revamp We are fast approaching the limitations of using bash to control Pi-hole, so we are going to try to re-code the project in Python.

pi-hole.net is a small operation and does not use advertisements, so the only source of revenue come from your donations, which keeps Pi-hole free and open source. But now there is a way you can support us, block ads, and support your favorite free Websites:
Is there a feature or improvement that would make Pi-hole better? We would love to hear your ideas. Just go to https://pi-hole.net/feature-requests/ and submit your idea. You will also be able to vote for your favorite features so we know what you are looking for.
