New Opera developer 36

  • The first Opera developer 36.0.2072.0 😉

    The change log, and the announcement.

    In the Opera 36 cycle, we are working on the following feature improvements:

    Speed Dial

    Soon you should be able to see a refreshed, more elegant and easier-to-use solution. You can already find a flag (opera://flags/?search=navi#web-ui-navigation-sidepanel) to put the navigation bar to the left side. Enhanced design and on/off switches for components are also on the way. That ugly, white-blinking effect when switching to bookmarks manager is known, and we are working on a fix now.

    News

    This feature should be personalized, super fast to use and customizable. Our work here is continuation of a longer process devoted to enhancements. For the next version, we’re also looking into supporting RSS feeds via News.

    Simple, yet powerful UI

    On the one hand, we want to simplify the UI, removing, for example, the sync button from the top UI. But, on the other hand, we’d like to give you more tools and options to adjust your browser according to your preferences. What would you like to see?

    More extensions on the toolbar

    The long-awaited expander should be delivered in this cycle, which is important for those of you who use a lot of extensions.

    Windows 10 UI improvements – This is something you have already seen in O35 cycle that should now be finalized and delivered to the stable version.

    Synchronization engine improvements

    These should mean you get fewer l server-connection kickouts, improving reliability of the service.

    A few more stealth projects – More will be revealed about these later.

    As usual, we can’t promise that any of these improvements will hit final in O36 – or ever hit stable at all. Nevertheless, significant Speed Dial changes should arrive next week in the upcoming Developer update. For now, we’d really like to hear your feedback, and, as always, we are waiting to get new flag comments from our fans!

  • New build - Opera developer 36.0.2079.0 😉

    The change log, and the announcement.

    This is the last developer release – and the last release in general – we’ve got for you this year, and so, maybe it’s time for a short summary for 2016:

    - We’ve released 90 builds in total, of which 40 were developer builds, and also 21 stable builds, and 29 beta builds.

    - We made it to 36 developer version (from 28 exactly a year ago).

    - We fixed numerous issues, introduced new ones along with new features, and then fixed them again.

    - We changed quite a lot, and some of the changes were made possible owing to our community eager to help us, report bugs and suggest improvements. Thanks guys!

    Back to the release, though. As you will notice when looking at the change log, we have fixed a number of issues, dealt with crashes (thanks a lot, Shion!) and introduced a few improvements. We also plan to introduce some Speed Dial adjustment changes soon – stay tuned for the first developer build in 2016!

    Here is the selected highlight for today’s release – the one you’ve requested for quite some time:

    Show the sync button only when needed

    Currently, the sync button is not useful for majority of the time. If you don’t use synchronization at all, it just wastes your UI space. So we decided to make some changes. It’s still being implemented, so when something won’t work as expected, don’t panic, just report 😉

    General rules:

    - Sync button is always visible if #hide-sync-login-button flag is disabled (in all states)

    - Sync button is hidden two weeks after flag was enabled for the first time and button is in grey state

    - Sync button is hidden in red button state, when error is caused by network problem

    - Sync button is hidden in green button state

    - Sync button is visible when sync login popup is displayed and at least 10 seconds after popup is closed

    Have a good time and a Happy New Year with our developer release

  • The first Opera developer's build this year - 36.0.2106.0 😉

    The change log, and the announcement.

    "This release is packed with features, some of them expected already by the ones who like to play with the flags, but we still hope there are going to be some nice surprises here.

    Start Page layout change

    The Start Page features quite a number of changes. In the attempt to increase ergonomics, the start page navigation panel is now positioned on the left side. Apart from that, we decided to merge News and Speed Dial, creating one simplified and configurable Start Page (please note the “Customize start page” cogwheel option in the top right corner):

    Extension expander

    We also enabled the extension expander for all those who tend to have many extensions and would like to access all of them even if they don’t fit on the toolbar, without having to refer to opera:extensions. Please note that the screenshot below contains quite a number of random (but nonetheless great for sure) extensions which are there only for demonstration purposes.

    Opera UI for Windows 10 and touch screens

    Windows 10 users, particularly these using touch screens, should notice some substantial UI improvements. These are currently hidden behind the flag #windows-10-skin but we decided to mention these anyway because the change, in our view, should be really pleasing.

    First of all, you can now control whether you want the system or Opera colors by switching the setting in Browser -> Show system color on top bar.

    Second, the touch users will have additional icon for the full screen mode:

    And, touch users will notice bigger context menus when Opera was activated by touch:

    Bookmark deduplication improvements

    Along with a few minor fixes, we have identified and fixed DNA-47472. Wit this fix, bookmark deduplication should now work more smoothly, and we are hopeful for a flawless performance. Please check out for yourselves and see if it works for you!

    We have also fixed a few crashes and updated the Chromium version to 49.0.2593.0.

    Known issues:

    - We are aware of a renderer crash on pages containing videos with audio. This is Chromium-specific and already reported,

    - It is impossible to configure News (country and categories) until you turn the flag #personalized-news-start-page on – the fix is on its way and should be available in the next developer release,

    - At rare occasions, Speed Dial may be broken on the fresh USB installation. Relaunching Opera fixes the issue.

    ☕ \m/ :cheers:

  • Wow ! the new speed dial with new functionnality and the new inspector up bar for responsive dev is awesome !

    Great Job bros !

  • Can you make the same animation return like on firefox ?

    You know , like a box rotate and the spin inverse automatically to the normal state ...

  • New builds for Mac, and Windows - 36.0.2114.0 😉

    The change log, and the announcement.

    "Important note for Linux users: for technical reasons, we are unable to deliver the updated Linux build today. No need to worry though – another developer update is expected soon. Your patience will be rewarded."

    "We have changed quite a bit, including suggestions from our dedicated users – many thanks, you are most reliable!

    For the today’s release, we have the following highlights:

    Users’ suggestions

    Yes. A separate section only for the users’ suggestions being implemented. Go and see for yourself:

    - Behold – you can now have a completely clean start-page. However, to fully utilize this feature, you have to go to Settings -> Browser, scroll down and enable “Show advanced settings”. Then, open the start-page, click “Customize Start Page” and enjoy the ability to turn off everything:

    image

    Note that without the “Show advanced settings” check-box enabled, you can only turn off themes and news.

    - We have also removed the white underlay from the news page so that the background is either generally clean and themed. Do you like it now?

    - The bookmarks bar folder icon has been updated to conform with the Opera visual integrity. Thanks for your input!

    News configuration

    As you can see on the screenshot attached above, now you can configure news from the start-page configuration panel right away – we have fixed the nuisance from the previous release 🙂

    Themes configuration

    The updated Themes carousel now appears in both the Settings->Browser panel and the “Show Advanced Settings” start-page configuration panel. You can select from both the installed themes and the Opera online themes:

    Of course, the previous method of Opera theming is also still available.

    Other features

    The ones below are currently hidden under flags, so please check them out when you feel explorative:

    - If you have some substantial history, you can try out the flag #personalized-news-start-page, and see how it works for you after you click through the configuration steps:Personalized News

    - If you have a slow connection (around 1Mb/s or less), news can be auto-supported by the Turbo2 mode without having to explicitly turn on Opera Turbo. To enable that, please switch the #turbo-for-news-on-startpage flag.

    - To test our current state of flawless switching between internal pages, please enable the #start-page-web-ui-components flag.

    We have also updated the Chromium version to 49.0.2612.0."

    Known issues

    - DNA-48596 On Mac, Opera freezes when going to the fullscreen mode with more than one extension in the expander menu,

    - DNA-48602 More history content is not loaded when generating history and going back to the History tab,

    - DNA-48599 opera:activity infinite loading when the user is not logged into the sync service,

    - DNA-48607 On HiDPI displays, the page scrollbar is incorrectly scaled.

  • I moved on from Firefox to Opera and I am very happy with it. :love: But there are a few minor things I think could be improved (IMHO):

    • a directly bookmarks access from the top UI;

    • when cleaning cookies, the ability clean them by the websites they are related. Otter browser have it and it is very useful. They are indexed by website;

    • again on bookmarks, when accessing from menu dialog, I really do not understand the necessity of it to start from the "My Folders" folder and not directly on the bookmarks inside that folder.

    • a option to have icon only bookmarks on bookmarks bar without the needing to delete information. It used to have on the "old" Opera, including the ability to center them.

    Many thanks! 🍺

  • a directly bookmarks access from the top UI;

    What does this mean? There's CTRL+Shift+B, and there's also a button on the startpage. Do you mean you'd want a button like the speed dial button?

  • Opera developer 36.0.2129.0. An error in "Navigation side panel"

    1. (opera://flags/?search=navi#web-ui-navigation-sidepanel) = Enabled

    1. (opera://flags/?search=navi#web-ui-navigation-sidepanel) = Disabled

  • a directly bookmarks access from the top UI;

    What does this mean? There's CTRL+Shift+B, and there's also a button on the startpage. Do you mean you'd want a button like the speed dial button?

    Yes, basically a button but with a dialog, more like the sync button. A fast (one click) access to the bookmarks without the need to change the current window. In others words identically that we already have on menu but with the fast access from the top UI.

    Thanks!

  • hi,
    Es wäre schön, wenn Opera Videos, die es bisher nur in einem eigenen TAB darstellen konnte, auch DIREKT abspielen könnte.
