I have just released the first beta release of 4.47.

The main new feature here is to automatically update the file every day.
All your local changes will be kept, so there is no need to change how 
you use the file at all.

But if you post me details of new additions to the file, I will add them 
to the master list, and they will appear in everyone's list within a day.

If sites are added to the master list which turn out to be false, then I 
can just add a "REMOVE" line to the master file and that will 
be removed from everyone's whitelist. So if you don't approve of one of 
my additions, you can add your own "REMOVE" line so you don't 
use my listing for that

So it's all pretty safe, and it should be impossible to subvert it. I 
personally vet every application to add a host to the list. But if I 
list one I shouldn't, then it is very easy for me (or you) to undo this 
with the "REMOVE" syntax.

I hope you all find this useful and will upgrade to the new release at 
the start of November.

In the mean time, I would be eternally grateful if you could test this 
new feature for me.
