Opera Mini 13 beta for iOS

  • Hi!

    We have just released the Opera Mini 13 beta for iOS for users registered in TestFlight!

    Changelog:

    • Improvements in startup time.
    • Integration with password managers. Press share to access your favorite password manager application and allow it to automatically fill in log-in details
    • Slide over and split screen support for iPad (only for iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 2 or later). Here we had employ some tricks to make the context menus appear in the right place, so interesting with feedback regarding this. But the feature is new in general so nice to hear of any issues

    Feel free to discuss the beta in this thread, or if you wish to talk to us privately, you can communicate through the TestFlight App.

    And for you who are not registered in our TestFlight account yet, you can sign up here: http://www.opera.com/mobile/mini/iphone/beta

    Best regards

  • Just installed it. Went smoothly.

    Testflight said I get 61 days this time, though, rather than the usual 30.

  • Yeah, apple just increased the expiration time.

    I think this can help us give you a bit more streamlined experience!

  • Notification and installation went fine.
    Unfortunately I can not confirm any improvements regarding startup time so far,
    looking formward to the next version...

  • And a new beta this morning...

  • And yet another new beta today...

  • No improvements regarding startup time here, even with latest beta.
    It's still slow as hell. Actually so slow that if I didn't know it was "normal", I would kill the app as I suspect it to have crashed (I restart other apps after half the time Opera Mini takes to start, and if they take that long (very rare) something seriously went wrong...)

  • Thanks for Tab sync on iOS, has been long awaited :)

    It's currently only half working here though: I see open tabs of my tablet, not not of my desktop installation.
    SpeedDials are correctly synced and I see both of them (tablet and desktop).

    btw: I took a watch to measure startup time after a restart on my iPhone 5c (plenty free mem) with 3 open tabs (simple pages) and sync enabled, and - hold on - it's been 12 seconds :(

  • Just in case anybody cares: with todays new version (tab sync crash fix), the issues didn't really improve.
    Now I see the tabs of the desktop installation, but not the open tabs of the tablet, though the switch might be a coincidence (only the device with the most up to date sync is shown or whatever...)

  • I hit a major bug in the latest beta. I'm using mini for ios, beta 13.0.1.100708 on an iphone 4s with ios v 9.2.1.

    When I launched Mini, the tabs I had open reopened normally. If I long-pressed a link in a page and selected open in new tab, I got a page in a new tab. Those things worked fine.

    However...

    When I clicked the speed-dial button, Mini crashed out.
    When I clicked the tabs button and tried to open a new tab, Mini crashed out.
    In either of those two crashes, when I reopened Mini, there was a blank tab, and when I tried to select it, Mini crashed out.

    I could continue to use those two tabs and any tab opened from "open in new tab". I could swipe the blank tab away.

    All of this I was able to repeat a number of times.

    So then I closed all the tabs and pressed the speed-dial button, and it crashed out. When I reopened Mini, it showed all the tabs I'd closed, but when I tried selecting any of them, it crashed out.

    After a full reboot of my iphone, those "ghost" tabs were no longer there, and launching Mini brought up a white screen followed by crashing out.

    I reinstalled the current gold version, and everything is working normally again.

  • Weird - my bug post above didn't push this thread up. Maybe this will. (Yep, it did. If you're interested in the bug post, it's one message up.)

  • With some time on my hands - I've reinstalled the beta, and the problem returned.
