We have just released Opera 11.62 and want to thank you all for helping testing it out. This release is primarily a security update, but we have also collected tons of crash fixes and other high visibility bugs. We were even able to sneak in a performance improvement.
11.62 is a recommended security and stability update.Download Opera 11.62

Another Thursday 11.62 build. A final 11.62 release is just around the corner, so testing is perhaps more important than ever!
Remember that the intention for 11.62 is to be a stability and performance improvement on 11.61. We believe we have achieved that, so our focus is now to make sure there are no regressions from 11.61. Therefore please do not discuss outstanding or previously reported issues here. Rather we ask that you focus you testing entirely on spotting any regressions we may have overlooked.

It is Thursday, so time for another 11.62 update! As always with these Tunny snapshots, we are interested in any regressions from the 11.61 stable or the previous 11.62 snapshot (comparisons with Next/12.00 are less interesting). Also since one of the fixes below deals with page loading we would be particularly interested to hear if you notice any differences with regards to NSL (never stops loading) issues.
Thanks in advance for your feedback! 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.Download

It's Thursday again, and here is one more build on our way to perfection!
This one fixes a bunch of crashes and my personal favorite DSK-340710 (New tab button overlaps the Extender menu button and tabs when Tab Bar is placed right or left) - so now I can move Tab Bar back to the left side and use 100% of screen height on my tiny laptop!WARNING: This is a development snapshot: It contains the latest changes, but may also have severe known issues, including crashes, and data loss situations.

It's Thursday and time for another 11.62 snapshot. The most interesting change here is DSK-357882 which we believe will improve performance, particularly for high latency sites.
Tips to make it easier to test and give feedback:
Compare against 11.61, not 12.00
(use the install instructions in the links below to install alongside stable Opera)
Delete cache before comparing
(otherwise you might be comparing cached and non-cached content)
Test multiple times and ignore minor differences
(the nature of the internet means there will always be some fluctuation)
We are only interested in faster or slower
(loading at roughly the same speed is not a problem)
Mention your location and the page you tested against when giving feedback
(websites hosted in the same country as you will tend to have lower latency)
As always, thanks for your help! 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.Download

My name is Kristine and I'm an all year round intern in Desktop QA. It’s been 938 days since my last blog post and it's good to be back
We are preparing another maintenance release for 11.6x ‘Tunny’ with some stability fixes. This is a normal Opera release, not Opera Next. All of the below fixes are already in the current Opera Next release.Known issues
- [Mac] Address field blinks while typing
- [Linux] The 64-Bit build has a different build number but is in fact identical

Opera 11.60 has been released today!
The desktop team would like to thank everyone for testing and reporting issues.
If you haven't tried Opera's built-in mail client (M2) yet, now is the time to do so. Opera's mail UI has been completely revamped
in Opera 11.60, is easy to setup and works well in combination with webmail services.
11.60 also features
an updated version of the browser enginer (including Opera's new HTML5 parser, Ragnarök) and many improvements in the address field, including an easy way to add pages to bookmarks or speed dial.
More details about what is new in Opera 11.60 can be found in the changelogs
Stay tuned for Opera 12 snapshots!Download Opera 11.60Changelog since 11.60 RC 2

We're still not quite ready for a Release Candidate, but we've done some work on plugins that we would like you all to take for a spin. This should, among other things, fix the issue where Flash videos would keep playing in the foreground after closing or switching tabs.
So for this snapshot, please be on the lookout for plugin/Flash regressions, particularly related to focus and input.As a general note, please test in 11.5x before you report any problems, and indicate in your comment whether it is a regression in 11.60 or not.WARNING: This is a development snapshot: It contains the latest changes, but may also have severe known issues, including crashes, and data loss situations.
