New Presto update, and good news from the desktop team

September 13th, 2010

Here’s another snapshot with mostly Core/Presto updates. Bumping the Presto version number to 2.6.35. In addition to various fixes, it adds support for the updated Big5-HKSCS standard, and there is a known issue you may want to watch out for, where the progress bar does not disappear until you hover the user interface (DSK-313018).

There is also some good news from the desktop team. We’re happy to let you know that the desktop engineering team has grown by nine people in one go, by recruiting experienced engineers from other parts of the company! This comes in addition to the existing additions to the team, and really shows how important the desktop browser is to Opera Software.
