WARNING: These are development snapshots: they contain the latest changes, but they also have severe known issues, including crashes and data loss situations. In fact, they may not work at all.New known issues
- UNIX: Tooltips with the native skins look weird
- Last week's snapshot (Windows build 9735, Mac build 4603, and Linux/UNIX build 1754) contained a serious IMAP bug that could cause internal data corruption. This problem is most likely to affect those with TLS enabled. Symptoms include headers displaying, but bodies missing and/or duplicates messages. The underlying cause of this corruption is fixed in this snapshot, but unfortunately, there's no fix for the corruption. The only way to fix this corruption is to delete your Mail directory and start over.
The last week has seen quite a bit of work on improving the native skin on Windows. This includes both the "classic" look and the XP/Vista themed look. Some of the improvements you will see in this regard are:
- The background in the panel selector toolbar is less dark
- Close buttons in tabs and notifications have native elements
- Tooltips and notifications have native elements
- Margins on the dropdown button are gone
- The element used to show/hide the list in Delete Private Data and other places is native
- The sort arrows up/down on listview column headers are native
- The tabs in the Windows "classic" skin are now more like real tabs and no longer sunken buttons
There will be more skin changes forthcoming. Changelog
-  Fixed sorting issues in mail
-  Fixed several IMAP synchronization issues
-  Fixed secure connection on IRC
-  Fixed problem with closing wrong tab if click tab to minimize was enabled
-  The close button on tabs is now red again
-  Fixed syncing of speed dial update intervals
-  Mac: Fixed freeze on HTTP auth dialog
- Experimental support for recursive mbox import
- Fixed some issues regarding IMAP labelling of messages (eg, spam)
- Calmed down the link status field a bit (Don't change it unless something actually happened)
- Some improvements to fast forward, works better on ie engadget.com and ebay.com
- Added /notrayicon command line argument on Windows as well (yay)
- Fixed issue where downloaded message bodies would disappear
- Fixed TLS handshaking issues, which could cause problems when sending mail
- Fixed over-wrapping issue with right-aligned mail headers

Yesterday Mozilla released
their jsfunfuzz tool at the Blackhat convention in Las Vegas. The tool is very useful for stress-testing
Here is a build that should address all of the issues: test it, give it a spin with the tool - and please report any crashers you might find with the fuzzer, and most importantly: send us a crashlog
along with it!
! And many thanks to Mozilla for sharing their tool.Download:Windows MSIWindows ClassicMacintoshUnix

After a boring weekend
we're finally allowed to be funny again
Personally I really look forward to the dress as a troll day
, hope to bring you pictures of that
In the meantime, here's a new build with minor fixes all over the place. Our QA is too busy testing to even write a changelog, so finding the fixes will be our way of hunting easter eggs, I guess...Known issue
- The .6 rpm doesn't start on Linux. You can fix it by replacing
in the startup script "/usr/bin/opera"

Привет всем нашим пользователям! Сегодня моя очередь объявлять еженедельный выпуск, поэтому я напишу по-русски. Спасибо пользователям из России за поддержку! Теперь у вас есть свой человек в Desktop Team. :-)
Самое важное в новом выпуске — исправления, касающиеся Flash 9 под Linux. Теперь видео с YouTube можно смотреть в полноэкранном режиме! (Ещё можно закрывать надоедливую Flash-рекламу.)Другие изменения
Now in English…
- Добавлен автоматический поиск из адресной строки при вводе более одного слова;
- Оформление Speed Dial оптимизировано по скорости;
- В запросах BitTorrent появилась поддержка необязательного «ключа», это означает, что больше торрентов будут работать;
- Исправлены проблемы с прозрачными областями в некоторых виджетах под UNIX;
- Появились пакеты .6 для архитектуры ppc-linux, которые будут (ну, должны) работать на PS3, если вы поставили туда Linux!
Hello to all our users! Today it's my turn to announce the weekly build, so why don't I post in Russian? Thanks to the Russian users for your support. Now you have an insider in Desktop Team! :-)
The most important is that we've fixed some issues with Flash 9 on Linux. This means that you can now watch YouTube video fullscreen! (And close annyoing Flash ads.)Other changes

- Added support for automatic search from address bar when entering more than one word;

- Fixed issue with replacing personal search engines on startup
- Support for downloading search engine icons on first start and upgrade
- Fixed a fair number of cosmetic issues in speed dial
- Added a limit on how many page thumbnails can be in memory, should result in lower memory usage over time
- Added thumbnail tooltip to the windows panel list
- Enabled plugins in feeds again
- Fixed a heap of prominent and non-prominent crashers
- Most translations should now be up to date, please test!
- Fixed deadkeys on GMail (finally!)
- Fixed spellchecker on FreeBSD (look for the right libaspell...)
- Improved protection against running two instances of Opera using the same settings directory
- Opera now supports the AppleAntiAliasingThreshold property which allows you to turn off antialiasing (font smoothing) separately from the system setting; a bug in not respecting the system setting has also been fixed

already adds Speed Dial shortcuts to the first 9 links on the start page, so you can just press *1 to get to your favorite site on your phone. Now we do the same thing for desktop, where Ctrl+1 to Ctrl+9 gives you direct access to your 9 favorites. When you open a new tab, the 9 Speed Dial sites will be displayed with pretty thumbnails, a single mouse click away Why Speed Dial?
Bookmarks often fall into two categories:
- A bunch of sites you bookmark because you may want to visit them again someday
- 5 or 6 sites you visit very often
Speed Dial is an elegant way to address the second category. When you open a new tab, it will often be to go to one of your favorite sites, so why not just show them there instead of an entirely blank page? Adding your favorites to Speed Dial is also very, very simple: Just click the button and choose a site from your Top 10 history or from the currently open tabs. Deleting them is just as simple, with the X in the upper right corner.Cool stuff:
So, what's on *your* Speed Dial?Known issues:
- You can reload all thumbnails by pressing Ctrl+R, giving you a quick overview of whether your favorite pages have changed, or just reload one of them from the right-click menu (nice for Web mail!).
- We're partnering with Yahoo! on both Mobile and Desktop, which explains the new search field. You can of course configure it from search preferences.
- You can drag links to thumbnails and even rearrange thumbnails by dragging them on top of each other.
- You can hide the entire thing with the "Hide Speed Dial" button in the lower right corner if you don't like it.
- Overrides your search.ini file instead of merging them: Make a backup before installing.
- Thumbnails should not reload on every startup.
- "Reload every..." is missing from the context menu.
- Middle-click doesn't open pages in the background.
- Back button doesn't go back to Speed Dial.
- Several skin and display problems.
- Contains some hardcoded not translatable strings.
- The "What is Speed Dial" link doesn't go anywhere.
- Forgetting to put your partner's blog in SD1 can have dramatic consequences
- Fixed several crashes when printing, sending mail, removing active web panel...
- Lots of minor fixes.
- Start bar is replaced by Speed Dial, Top-10 and Bookmark buttons can be found in the Appearance dialog and added to other toolbars.
- Canvas: Stopped drawing lines from origin (0, 0) when using path functions in accordance with changes in WHATWG canvas spec. Note to Widget developers: This may cause problems with your Widgets if you use Canvas.

Attention: This build is experimental.
It contains a feature reporting system that will report back usage of a number of features to Opera once per week. This allows us to know more about how you all use our product in an anonymous way.
The idea is that while some people tell us about their wishes and concerns in the blog and forums, thousands of people download the weeklies without giving direct feedback. By using a build with feature reporting, they will also contribute to improving the product for all of us.Yes, you can turn the feature off:opera:config#UserPrefs|EnableUsageReport
Normally we don't ask you to install a weekly on top of a final version, but if you dare do so this time it will help us get more correct data, making sure that we continue to make a better browser for YOU.So, what does the report contain?
You can check yourself, a copy of the next report is stored in the Opera profile directory, under usagereport/report.xml. It reports things like what preferences you have enabled or not, whether you use Widgets or not, and how many bookmarks you have. Only numbers*, no domain names or other sensitive data.
*) Excluding Visa and MasterCard Changelog:
Windows MSIWindows ClassicMacintoshUnix
- Included experimental feature reporting mechanism
