Post-beta fixes

February 19th, 2010

We promised you more things test after the beta, and here is the first part of the fixes that didn’t make it into the beta. In addition to Windows, we also have new Unix builds for testing. We are trying to get something for Mac later on.

These builds contain a number of Unix specific fixes and improvements, as well as some of the many general bugs we have been working on since before the beta. This includes some work on the e-mail client.

If anyone is feeling adventurous and wants to test upgrading from Opera 10.10 or earlier, let us know about any problems you come across. We recommend against upgrading your stable installation of Opera, but it is of course possible to take a backup copy which can be restored after you have performed the test upgrade.

Important: We have switched back to the old bookmarks format. If you have upgraded from an older 10.50 build and your bookmarks are missing, you may have to copy over your bookmarks manually.

Known Issues
