Right now when you provide this code as HTML or XML in a plain file ...
<update-info xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" src="http://test.opera.com/media/extensions/23/235873f76d9245be97481c262e05b8d1.oex" version="1.1">
... Opera detects an update even when there's really no update.
The Extension submit-page doesn't list Norwegian as an extension language (well, it lists very few languages). Will there be any language expansions?
The browser crashes on update check when detecting the HTML/XML code if I implement the MIME type into the Apache2 config file. But it doesn't get recognized when using the .htaccess. Could be that I'm doing it wrong.
it is sever responsibility to detect if for particular extension there is update available. So when extension has
and under http://someurl/ is an xml hardcoded, opera will treat it as an update, each time it looks for update.
To do it correctly you should have proper logic on the server, and provide "update-info" responce only when for particular gadget version update is really available. Information about extension version can be provided in "someurl".

You don't. It is created and added automatically after the extension is submitted
Oh! I thought of that but to me it sounded like an odd way of doing it. Thanks for answering me though and saving me what could have been a very exhausting session of searching for the answer elsewhere. ^^
