New Opera developer 32 - password sync, animated themes and more

  • The first Opera developer 32.0.1899.0, and the change log 😉

    The announcement: Opera developer 32.0.1899.0 – password sync, animated themes and more 😉

    "Today, we want you to help test our new features, including syncing passwords, animated themes, a fresh user interface and other fixes.

    Sync your passwords

    Your Opera account is getting more robust with every release. In O31, you can sync your typed history. In O32, we are planing to support password synchronization. This should simplify and speed up your browsing experience when you sign in to many services on many devices.

    If you already use the sync service, you should notice a message in the sync dialog.

    If you click Choose what to synchronize, you will be able to select Passwords (you can only sync passwords between version 32 browsers). For maximum security, set a master passphrase.

    This is simple for the user, but it was really challenging to develop. We wanted to make sure your passwords are secure. To do that, we use two types of security levels:

    • Opera credentials : Your passwords will be encrypted with your account password, and will only ever be decrypted on your own devices, never on Opera’s servers.
    • Passphrase (master password) : When the explicit master password is used, only you know the master password and only this password allows decryption of your other passwords, they are impossible to decrypt without. Please make sure to use advanced master password for maximum security.

    If you’re curious, we use nigori encryption. You can read more on our security blog post.

    Get animated themes

    We are exploring animated background themes and with this release you can check out our initial implementation. Go and grab one here. We have yet to optimize CPU usage with this feature but feel welcome to share your experience.

    Check out some UI changes

    We’re tweaking and refining some user interface niceties in the upcoming versions of Opera. For example, we’re working on making dialogs a little more friendly and easy to understand. If you see anything you like (or don’t), let us know and we’ll check in on how to make it better.

    Get a native Mac toolbar

    We’ve been working hard to make each version of Opera more native to the platform. And, with O32 your Mac looks a great deal more like the Yosemite style of your native apps.

    More

    As usual, there are many bug fixes and many new bugs. 😉 We are working on making video support as smooth as possible. Please share your experience in that area.

    Also:

    • PDF is fixed.
    • O menu bookmarks are fixed.

    Soon, we should deliver more bookmarks manager changes. If you enable the #trees-in-bookmarks flag, you will notice bookmarks manager changes and bookmarks adding popup enhancements. More about this in the coming weeks!

    Known issues
    • Print preview is not available for PDF files (DNA-40049)
    • Drag and drop unavailable for bookmarks or folders in the side panel of bookmarks (DNA-40049)"

    Enjoy! ☕ 🐧 \m/ :love: :cheers:

  • Hi! What for on the desktop version of the browser is needed this tiled interface? Please return the flag «Experimental start page». :down: :no: The user must have the right to choose.

  • Please return the flag «Experimental start page»

    The experiment has ended, so the flag was removed.

  • Please, return «Experimental start page»!!! Current speed dial is disgusting! Why do I need such small tiles on my huge screen?

  • Hi all. After upgrading to Opera 32.1899.0 I try to use password sync, but I get message like this: "You have some data, encrypted by another version of password for your Opera account... bla-bla-bla". But I have only one Opera account, and I don't remember that I sometime used any passphrase or master password. Anybody have the same problems?

    I use Opera for a long time, from version 3.62 as I remember and I maybe forgot something, but how I can sync my passwords now? Question for developers, of course

    Thank you, ane sorry for my English 😉

  • The farther in the wood, the woodpeckers are angrier... It is rather Vivaldi's release... \m/

  • Hi, could someone of the @moderators check, what happend to my last comment (this one in regard to the latest developer build), please? It seems like the last changes have been not approved yet, or the comment has been removed. After that, please remove this comment as well, thank you in advance 😉

  • Please, we need the old version of speeddial on desktops instead of this ugly, monstrous, heinous, terrible, enormous, horrible, horrific, awful, appalling, horrendous, hideous, atrocious, dreadful, gruesome tile style speeddial!
    Old speeddial was perfect!
    Return the flag «Experimental start page»!
    Why would you alienate your fans?

  • Hi, could someone of the @moderators check, what happend to my last comment (this one in regard to the latest developer build), please?
