Snapshots for everyone!

March 26th, 2010


I’m the main Opera Mail developer in the team and have been working in the Desktop-Team for a couple of years. Unfortunately no major mail changes this time, I’ve been working on our CVS to Git transition, but I’ll be back on M2 from now on!

After several months of hectic schedule to get the windows 10.50 release out, we’re now going to try to get snapshots in sync again, meaning releasing on all three platforms at the same time.

This time we’ve got some really cool stuff like font bug fixes for both Mac and Unix

In other news, GTK skinning has received some more attention and we’d like some more feedback on that. If you are seeing a problem in the skin, let us know, and don’t forget to mention which GTK theme you use. Several widget fixes also managed to get included in time! Look at the changelog for more details about this.

Also, you can expect Unite to be up and running again. Happy Friday beer
