And as far as these forums, they ARE the views of amateurs. 99.9% of the "bugs" people complain about here are not bugs at all, just poor user habits and/or lack of common sense.

Examples?

A number of the problems posted here are things that worked well under Catalina. If they don't work under Big Sur, then either the program can't work under some change in Big Sur (e.g. Carbon Copy Cloner), or there is a problem in Big Sur (e.g. can't open a .iso file or mount a SMB share).

Also, not all of us are amateurs. Some of us are registered Apple Developers, and have been for years, and some of us have been in IT for decades. We can identify a bug.

AdGuard 2.5.0.900 (maybe also earlier releases) works after changing to auto proxy in options.

Checked on beta 9.

It was working anyway wasn't it? The only issue I've been having is that when I reboot the computer, I get an error message saying that an AdGuard service couldn't be started. After waiting 3 min or so, I am able to turn AdGuard on without issue and it works as expected. For me, this has been the case with the last 3 or 4 releases.

I've reported the above issue to the AdGuard team.

And YouTube works fine with AG enabled? You don't get any connection errors? And it blocks the ads?

Yes. In my case it works great, no any issues or errors, also no ads as expected.

Before that the main issue was the crash of adguard after trying to switch on.

Yes, the same as @Rus_Knights reports above. When one of the early public betas came out, I was unable to turn AdGuard on at all when the computer booted up, but this was resolved with an AdGuard update some time ago. However, still get the same error after booting now, though it's a non-issue after a few min.

As a side note, I have had some issue with some websites not loading images and the odd embedded video and I've automatically thought this was an AdGuard issue, so had disabled AdGuard (on the page and globally) and also unchecked 'enable content blockers' in Safari site settings to no avail. The same sites have worked in Chrome, so I've assumed these are Safari bugs.

it should be working since we've added a commit recently (to fix yt white screen), if it is not working refresh the filters.

looks like VP9 decoder is not working as it should be on safari, so i disabled that until apple fixes that, and i'm not seeing errors anymore

I found out the culprit!
It's the file /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/GenericApplicationIcon.icns
In big sur we have only 4 icons inside, in catalina we have 10.
Mounting the system in r/w and copying the file from Catalina resolved the issue and the application starts.
Opening a ticket for the app developer now.

Update: the snippet of code that searches for the wrong icon is in NSMenuFX: they patched the issue on September 8th; otherwise hex patch directly your java app, the MenuToolkit.class (in my app is in jar-->de/codecentric/centerdevice/MenuToolkit.class); search for ic08 and patch with ic09.
Several java apps could be affected.

Added iStat Menus 6.5 to 'working' apps. As well as adding sensors for newer Macs (and other minor fixes), the presentation of iStat Menus text against different coloured menu bar backgrounds seems to fixed. The beta is available from https://twitter.com/bjango

Has anyone tried running Unity, GitKraken, Rider or Visual Studio?

I have been able to run GitKraken just fine. Haven't tried Visual Studio yet.

VSCode, IntelliJ, PyCharm work. My assumption is other jetbrains products work too but I don't currently have them. That may be entirely unhelpful, now that I remember xmarain has become Visual Studio for mac and you probably don't mean VScode. Regardless, most things that don't have kernel extensions should work without any issue.

As far as Rider, I have mostly been working without issues on it. I am having one issue with refactoring. This includes right-clicking and refactoring both in code and in the solution explorer. Every time I do it, the app becomes unresponsive, and sometimes bugs out in a weird way. Every time, I have to force close it. For the time being, I am manually refactoring. Everything else so far has been working fine as far as working in existing solutions.

Working for me. Make sure you have latest version of both PIA and BS (beta9).
I posted too quickly. V2.5 will install BUT I cannot enable split tunnel, that's what doesn't work and I need split tunnel to be able to send email, that's an issue with Cox email servers but E.G. v2.4 split tunnel works. And I am on the most current public beta, not the developer beta.

Very true. Split tunnel can't be enabled. Put in a support request.

Edit:
It is in the release notes that is doesn't work https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/pages/changelog. I can imagine that this will be difficult for PIA to fix
