Closing in on a Tunny (Opera 11.60) Beta

November 9th, 2011

Hello my name is RuarĂ­ and I am not a new employee. Since I am English, let's have this post and your comments in my mother tongue, including spellings (it is colour, not color)! If you need inspiration, listen to Game Chap. đŸ˜›

So here we are with yet another snapshot, and I am sure a few have you have guessed by now that we are getting close to a bigger release. Indeed a Beta for 11.60 is just around the corner. So you can consider this build to be an RC for the Beta.

For the Beta we aim for Opera 11.60 to be feature complete. There will be no new additions, just bug fixes from this point onwards. We also want the Beta to be stable enough for an "average user" to use as his/her day to day browser. What that means for you chaps and chapettes, is that right now we aren't interested in any feature requests, long standing issues from previous releases, or the odd pixel misaligned or wasted. We can look at those in future builds as we move past the Beta and onto the final.

Please only report critical issues below, which means crashes, freezes and major sites not working. If your pet bug doesn't fit within this definition please take your comments to the forums or wait until we are past the Beta stage and moving on towards the final.

Thanks for testing and your help to make this the best Opera possible!
