Web Sockets enter the Opera House

October 11th, 2010

God morgen from Oslo. Here is a new snapshot with a Core update featuring our first implementation of Web Sockets, and an improved Unite and Widgets implementation. (No UI changes.) Watch out for Unite and Widgets regressions.

Please read the posting in the Opera Core Concerns’ blog on Web Sockets (or skip straight to our test suite) and server-sent events.

There are other interesting things in the changelog including Core and Desktop bug fixes, so please read through it carefully.

WARNING: This is a development snapshot: It contains the latest changes, but may also have severe known issues, including crashes and data loss situations. In fact, it may not work at all.
