XZ compressed snapshots

xzcat opera-11.60-1173.i386.linux.tar.xz | tar x(Replace "opera-11.60-1173.i386.linux.tar.xz" with the name of the actual Opera package you wish to extract).
If you are using an older Linux distribution and find that xz is not available directly from your distribution's repositories, you can use these xzdec (XZ Decompressor) packages. Once installed you can now extract xz compressed Opera tar packages as follows:
xzdec opera-11.60-1173.i386.linux.tar.xz | tar x
P.S. I compiled xzdec on 32 and 64 bit Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Dapper Drake) LiveCDs. Ubuntu 6.06 was released on released in June 2006, so I expect these binaries should run on most distributions produced in the last 5 years. If you have problems using them please tell me your distribution (including version and architecture).
