Another new snapshot for your testing pleasures! We have put a lot of work into finalizing Unite.
The biggest change comes from the Land of Marketing and Usability Testing. We are re-branding
Unite Services as in the name of simplicity. (Apparently, no one knew what a service was.)
We still want all of you to focus on testing Unite, and ask that you leave the Sonar application running. Sonar is bundled in this snapshot, so there is no excuse for not turning it on. There are also UI changes to the default apps, so go have a look!
For Unite Application Developers (hey! you just got a new title), there are some new technical details for serving an Unite Application from your own servers. Use the new file extension
.us and serve it with the MIME type application/x-opera-uniteapplication. Users will get a security warning if the application is served from a non-trusted site (similar to add-ons in Competitorfox).
We are also experimenting with giving feedback on the most common crashes. This feedback page will be populated as a new tab in your session after recovering from a crash.
- F2 dialog in non-browser view opens tabs in background instead of foreground
- ‘Search the Web for’ from address drop-down doesn’t work
- Unite Applications facelift
- Sonar bundled for this snapshot (please enable!)
- Experimental crash feedback
