New Opera developer 44

  • hi!
    i tried the new opera developer with a new macbook pro 2016 with touch bar (13"), but nothing happened in the touch bar.
    do i first have to activate something?
    thank you

    Maybe you need to enable it on opera://flags. You should also not that some of those features may not be available yet.

    edit: you were right, found it in opera://flags. thank you

  • Opera 43 restarts on Ubuntu 16.10 64-bit:

    1. Run Opera with --ssl-version-max=tls1.3.

    2. Go to a site that uses TLS 1.3 (e.g. https://www.cloudflare.com/).

    3. Click on the padlock. Opera restarts.

    Hi @joakimwallden The bug should be fixed in the latest version (44.0.2463.0) - "DNA-58519 Crash when clicking the security badge on gmail.com". I have tested it on the cloudflare.com, and it didn't crash 😉

  • Opera Developer 43: Extension - Background worker

    Is there a way to disable (Background worker) extension?

    Hi @rocky-iv, you can try to follow the below steps (it works in my case):

    1. Open a terminal window, and run the Opera with the command line switch as follows:

    /usr/bin/opera-developer --show-component-extension-options

    1. Open the "Extensions" page (Ctrl+Shift+E), scroll down to "Background worker", and click the "Disable" button.

    After that you can launch the Opera as usual (without the above switch).

  • since Opera developer 44.0.2463.0 the html_videoplayer doesn't work only flash will start! When I flash block the video do not start! Is it a new bug?

  • I have Opera 44 running on 2 laptops using Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro and 1 desktop using Windows 7 Pro. All 3 machines are having the same issue, which started recently. When I type something into the Google search field on the Opera speed dial screen and predictive text is displayed, when I click on a selection, it does not populate in the search field. I have to continue typing the entire text in the search field and then hit the search icon to complete it. This is so frustrating. Selecting predictive text in Opera used to work on all 3 machines but not anymore. Internet Explorer 11 and Chrome work fine selecting predictive text on all 3 machines, just not in Opera. How can this be resolved? Thank you.

  • New update - Opera developer 44.0.2475.0 😉

    The change log, and the announcement.

    "Hi, we’re releasing fresh developer version for you today. It contains number of fixes. Most important are:

    – Notification setting icon opens notification exceptions settings.

    – Bookmarks and browsing history are imported from the default browser successfully again.

    – Some Linux fixes containing fonts and not readable pages.

    – Search&copy pop-up fixes.

    You’ll also find new flag #more-share-menu-access-points on Mac. It enables sharing in macOS via the main menu and the selection popup.

    Chromium was updated to version 57.0.2950.4.

    Known issues:

    – The hereby build for Windows is non-PGO one.

    – H264 is not working on Linux with the currently available Chromium codecs package."

    Regarding the H264 issue, you can try a temporary workaround as follows (it works in my case):

    1. Download the opera-developer-ffmpeg-codecs-56.0.2924.10-1 package from the Heracura's repo: 32-bit, or 64-bit version,

    2. Navigate to the Opera's root folder, create a new subfolder "lib_extra", and extract the "libffmpeg.so" file from the package to this subfolder.

  • Great, crashing immediately. From the fastest to the slowest, doesn't move at all, doesn't start.

    Same problem as described on the blog. I use Opera Developer to develop and try out extensions. No more I guess, forced to be on hold.

    Known issue, I don't like the attitude shipping products in this state, it's disrespectful to other software, forcing a user to remove Chromium. Better skip a version, if you can't make it work.

    Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

  • New update (be aware, it can be quite of surprise) - Opera developer 44.0.2505.0 😉

    The change log, and the announcement.

    "Today, we’re bringing you a brand new refresh of our user interface in the developer stream. This work is part of a bigger project, code-named Reborn, which we will tell you more about soon. However, starting from today, you can preview its fresh look, and the new set of features.

    Brand new look and feelOpera's entire design has been updated with a new, high-quality graphical design that is less platform-specific. The tabs are simplified, lighter and more elegant, making it easier to locate open tabs. The new sidebar is more subtle and refined, with a touch of animation. Speed Dial has also been given a fresh look with smooth animations.

    Two colors

    Opera is now available in two theme colors: light and dark. We’ve also designed three new backgrounds, that perfectly complement Opera’s new look and feel. Both, the background wallpaper, and the browser color can be managed under Themes.

    Browser sidebar

    Opera’s sidebar has been moved from Speed Dial to the main browser window, similar to how it is in Opera Neon. This first version of the new sidebar gives you one-click access to important tools, such as bookmarks, history, personal news and extensions. You can customize the tools, that appear in the sidebar, according to what you find useful.

    The new sidebar will be visible by default for new users (current users will have the option to turn it on by flipping the switch in Speed Dial).

    Sidebar for Facebook Messenger

    Communication is truly important on the web, but today switching between tabs, when responding to a message is cumbersome, and inefficient. In this version, we have added the ability to keep Messenger.com – Facebook Messenger’s standalone website – as a side tab. More social services are planned in the future.

    To use Facebook Messenger in Opera, click the icon on the top of the sidebar. After you log in to the site, there are two ways of using Facebook Messenger in the sidebar: you can open it in overlay, or pin it, and use it side-by-side with your current tab. The second option allows you to combine online chat with a full browsing experience.

    Zero-click network installer (for Windows)

    We’ve been working on providing you with an even quicker, simpler installation process. If you install Opera Developer for Windows using this link, the installer will start the installation process right after it’s launched, requiring no further clicks. The same solution will soon be available for everyone who downloads Opera at opera.com.

    Of course, you can still go through the full installation process by choosing the “Download the offline package” option on our download page, or by using a USB installer.

    Chromium is updated to version 57.0.2987.19.

    ☕ \m/ :cheers:

  • Ok, the new additions are great...

    But there's a minor issue with the new sidebar... If you use the extensions sidebar like I do, you will end up with two sidebars, see:

    Alt text

    which is not great, it's a waste of space.

    Would not be better to merge this two sidebars into one? The facebook messenger already looks like a sidebar extension, so it would be nice.

    Other thing, the extensions sidebar color should match the new one, imo.. Besides, when you switch to the dark theme, the extension sidebar remains the same light color... needs fix..

    And yes, add Telegram to the sidebar, please asap... 🙂

    ===================================================================

    Crashing when moving tabs out of the window and putting back. See:

    Alt text

    ===================================================================

    What "Show system color on top bar" does? See:

    Alt text

    I enabled it but didn't see any difference.

    Thx...

  • I enabled it but didn't see any difference.

    Yep, it doesn't seem to be working with Reborn. Don't know if it's a bug or if this feature somehow got deprecated by Reborn.

  • Might only apply to the old XP-style Windows themes anyway (in XP, Opera tended to always use blue on the top bar, even if your theme was olive - as mine was). As 44 will never run on XP and is no longer transparent in 7 with the standard theme, probably no longer functional. In Windows ... I guess I'll need to check on Linux.

  • Hey, minor issue here: while watching fullscreen youtube videos in the top corners there are 2 grey lines.

  • Welp. i know what it is, if you have any other window open, and you don't minimize it will show those lines. (just open the window and then in the task bar click opera.)

    (minimizing the window this "fixes", yet you need some type of program that has a black backroung if you don't want these lines)

    It works fine on version 43 stable, so probably it's just a bug...

  • It works fine on version 43 stable, so probably it's just a bug...

    But 43 doesn't have Reborn features, therefore it does not have a dark skin.

  • I was thinking wrong - it used to be specifically a 10 feature. Anyway ... Opera no longer integrates into 7, why would you expect it to integrate into 10?

  • It works fine on version 43 stable, so probably it's just a bug...

    But 43 doesn't have Reborn features, therefore it does not have a dark skin.

    I thought he's talking about the "Show system color on top bar", which I think is an theme-independent feature (I guess?)...
