New Opera developer 45

  • Unfortunately the link preview/hover/popup in the bottomleft corner is gone.

    It's still here.

  • Since 45.0.2522.0, the messenger does not collapse anymore on a second click on the button.

    Works here.

  • I'd like to see Skype, Twitter and/or Discord added to the side bar. I love this update so far, but I use neither WhatsApp or Messenger. It looks really nice from what I've seen of it, and I'm tempted to switch over to only using the Opera version of those apps if they're added.

    I'm curious if perhaps there couldn't in the future be a way to add other apps to the side bar using extensions, or perhaps even a built-in feature?

    Does not work here 😕

    The platform is Ubuntu 14.04, although I guess this should not be related.

    To make it close, I have to right click on the sidebar, disable FB messenger (to close the pan) and enable it again (to get the button back)

  • Try with a Clean Profile, here is the "How to" Frequently Asked Questions (Opera for Windows) .

    Just adjust to the OS paths and the appropriate file explorer.

    What may be relevant, is the window manager: i3wm with a “focus follow mouse” feature. I suspect this, because before this update, the pan was also automatically collapsed whenever I clicked outside of it, and it does not work anymore neither. So may be the issue is related to the way the focus is handled since this Opera update.

  • More annoying, I don't get any notification of new messages. If there are new messages, when I click the button, I get a blank pan where no conversation is selected (was not the same before). When I clicked on the conversation, I saw new messages, but there was no indicators of these: no sound and no red big dot.

    It's broken now, while it was working before (I don't remember what was the previous Opera version).

    I'm giving up with this feature, and will fallback on the messenger in a tab instead.

    Well, I'm on Windows 10 so I guess it may be related. 🙂

    Maybe it's time to make a report to Opera or to the devs?

    It's known as far as I know but it may to not be so easy to reproduce.

    Ok,
    despite we can not make :wizard: are news for affected users.

  • The mouse icon for resizing video popup seems not be in right place.
    It can be checked in left, right, bottom.

  • Even tested: This?

    PS: Delete cache folder too.

  • It does not help.

  • New update - Opera developer 45.0.2531.0 😉

    The change log, and the announcement - New Reborn update with Telegram, and GPU accelerated video on Windows.

    "We couldn’t wait any longer for another developer update for the Reborn project. Last week, we added support for WhatsApp, and Messenger. Today we are adding another communicator to the sidebar – Telegram. In addition to this, the latest update to the Opera Developer 45 brings some visible UI changes, faster video on Windows, and further tuning and fixes.

    It’s Telegram’s time

    Telegram is a popular messaging app with focus on security and privacy. It allows you to send messages, photos, videos, and files of any type for up to 5,000 recipients. Now, you will find it in the new Reborn sidebar, along with already available Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp.

    Similarly to our current communicators, you can simply log in to the service, and start chatting.

    Now with Telegram, the Reborn project has three communicators available by default in the sidebar. Do you think it’s too many? What do you think about having the most popular communicator visible by default, and others available as an option? Tell us your thoughts in the comment section.

    Narrow sidebar for Mac

    The new sidebar in the Mac version of Opera Developer can be now as narrow as on Windows. To adjust it, go to Settings -> Browser -> Sidebar -> “Enable Narrow Sidebar”, or use the sidebar context menu.

    UI improvements for Windows 7

    Based on your requests, we have also brought for you a more familiar platform feeling on Window 7. The latest version of Opera Developer for Windows 7 uses its system buttons to close, maximize, and minimize a window, as well as adjust transparent borders to fit to the platform.

    Faster video on Windows

    Most graphics processing units (GPUs) can decode videos highly efficiently. With this release, we will send even more video formats to the GPU for decoding on Windows. This will allow for significantly higher frame-rates, higher resolutions, and lower battery usage for these videos.

    Since we (sadly) do not have access to all possible graphics cards and drivers, we are keen to hear about your experiences here. So try watching HTML5 videos, and listen to an audio file, and if something is broken, please let us know in a comment, or file a bug report. You can disable, and enable the new code through the #media-windows-mf-demuxer flag in opera:flags.

    The Big Buck Bunny (from HTTP links) is always a good test.

    Technical mumbo jumbo

    A web page can play native videos through two different APIs: a streaming API (MSE), and by using video and source tags directly. This release makes the video and source tag API hardware-accelerated, when using an H.264 (mp4) video on Windows, just as the streaming API has done for a long time.

    If this works well, we want to do the same for Mac and Linux."

    The Chromium has been updated to version 58.0.3018.3.

    "Thanks for all the comments. Keep them coming!"
