Opera 11 snapshot, Core, UNIX and Extensions fixes

November 6th, 2010

Hello Opera users! We’re still working hard to make your Opera experience much better, it’s Saturday, it’s raining, there’s no sunshine, generally, the weather is bad here in Poland today… but a bunch of new hot fixes has arrived! 🙂

First of all, there’s a lot of Core fixes, and plenty of *nix fixes are also in. Next, there are several Opera extensions fixes and improvements. Now you can use external repositories as your extensions auto-update source. You can also install extensions from external repositories and add these addresses to whitelist to make your life easier next time. The extensions installer has a new look plus it shows additional info about installed extension.

For extensions developers, from now on if you drag-drop extension’s config.xml file onto Opera a separate list is created in Extensions Manager which is titled ‘Developer mode’. Each entry on this list has additional buttons: ‘Reload’ (you don’t have to install and uninstall to see the changes now, just click ‘Reload’) and ‘Open containing folder’ which we think can be quite useful.

I wish you good coffee while reviewing the new changes! 🙂
