Opera Dragonfly arriving soon
Thursday, April 24, 2008 11:48:42 AM
We've finally announced that Opera Dragonfly is our web developer tools. It will launch as an alpha release on the 6th of May (fingers crossed). It is the first product where I've been acting as the lead of the launch, so it was quite exciting to announce it. The second beta of Kestrel leaked early, and included very major hints that Opera Dragonfly was indeed the developer tools, so there was a mad rush to get the web page up, and the server set up correctly, but everything worked out eventually.
Opera has been lacking real developer tools far too long, so it fantastic that Opera Dragonfly is ready to launch soon. It won't be feature complete by the first alpha, but we are actively working to improve the tools and adding more functionality as time goes on. We're committed to making Opera Dragonfly the best application in its class.
With this, and the improvements in standards support in Core-2.1 our offerings to web developers looks like they are shaping up nicely.
