  • New update - Opera developer 45.0.2539.0 😉

    The change log,
    and the announcement.

    "This developer update brings you more Reborn, and ad block improvements, as well as some security, and performance changes.

    Reborn project continues

    In today’s version, we added a menu button, which will allow you to log out from your sidebar communicator without needing to visit the communicator’s website. You can also mute your communicator notifications from the menu.

    Also, Opera now brings you a new pop-up, when adding bookmarks, which includes the “Finished” button. This option gives a clearer way of adding bookmarks for users, who missed the confirmation that a new website was already added to the bookmark folder.

    For Windows 7 user we are working on a big update.

    Ad block anniversary improvements

    Last week, Opera’s native ad block celebrated its first anniversary. Now, this feature has been given a refresh, with some new, handy options.

    Opera automatically reloads a page, when toggling ad blocking on, or off for that page. It’s especially useful if you want to quickly flip the switch, and it gives you much more control and comfort while browsing with ad blocker.

    Also, we have added some important changes to the block list management. Now, you have control over which block lists are loaded. Easylist, and EasyPrivacy are turned on by default.

    Other lists, including regional and custom lists, can now be managed through the “Manage Lists…” dialog. Let us know, if there are any other lists, that you would find beneficial.

    Apart from that, Opera now offers support for more advanced CSS selectors, which help you block more ads.

    Performance and security changes

    H.264 video works in Windows 8.x again, and it now has the same hardware support as Windows 7 and Windows 10, both given in the last developer release (DNA-60041).

    Opera adds in-form warnings for sensitive fields, when the top-level page is not HTTPS. Whenever you start filling in your password, or credit card number on a page, which is not HTTPS, the warning will appear."

    Known issues:

    – Changed configurations are not reflected instantly – a reload is needed.

    – Unchecking all of the lists doesn’t work as expected – turn off ad blocker, to disable any blocking.

    The Chromium has been updated to version 58.0.3029.6.

    System: Windows 7 64-bit (WoW64)

    Steps to reproduce:

    2. Close Opera
    3. Unpin Opera from Taskbar
    4. Open Opera
    5. Close Opera
    6. Find pinned icon on the taskbar.
  • Since Opera promotes adblocking, is there a plan for Opera to promote micropayment?

  • Some icons of Opera Developer was changed in ver.45.0.2545.0. I think this icon of private window is not good. Because I think many users can't understand what this icon means. Is this icon glasses? or binoculars?

    And I'm sad to remove the Speed Dial animation when hovering mouse over the tiles. I like this animation! Because I am easy to know where mouse cursor. And this animation is fun! So, please adopt this animation again!

  • New update - Opera developer 45.0.2545.0 😉

    The change log, and the announcement.

    "This week starts with a fresh update to Opera 45 in our developer channel. It brings you further Reborn aesthetic improvements, an ad block redesign, and important bug fixes.

    Reborn with completely new icons

    Our work on the Reborn project steadily continues. Recently, we added a menu button, which allows you to quickly log out from your sidebar messenger. Now, it’s time for a complete icon overhaul. New icons are even more refined and elegant, and some of them change colors, when active. We have carefully optimized the icons for various DPIs in order to make them look perfect.

    In this update, we have removed the Speed Dial animation effect, when hovering your mouse over the tiles, and also added a new animation, when opening private mode.

    Windows 7 native look and feel

    This particular improvement has been one of our priorities, as many of you requested a deeper integration of the Reborn interface with Windows 7. The new interface respects Windows 7 look and feel, as we have brought back the window frame support for Aero.

    Bug fixes

    Last week, we gave you more control over ad block lists. Now, selecting, deselecting, and adding lists to the ad blocker are working correctly and take effect immediately, as we fixed it, and other related issues from last week.

    Amongst this bunch of fixes, last week’s top crasher – “Crash when showing desktop notification requests” – is gone.

    Stay tuned for more changes!"

    The Chromium has been updated to version 58.0.3029.19.

  • Since 45.0.2545.0, the Opera menu and contextual menu, are surrounded with a big black frame: is this on purpose or is this just something happening to me?

  • Hi @hibou57, it's known issue, which is confirmed by few users (including myself). For more details, please have a look here, and here.

  • If the icon of Private Window of Opera Dev 45 is sunglasses, I think better to change like this image↓↓

    Because this icon doesn't looks like sunglasses. If the icon of Private Window of Opera Dev 45 is normal glasses, I think better to change motif. Because If the icon is normal glasses, I think almost users wouldn't understand why this icon means "Private Window".

  • @l33t4opera, thanks for the details. I also noticed the scrollbar sometime disappears. Unfortunately, I don’t know the cause, so I cannot tell about anyway to reproduce it. On the same site, it may be there, and sometime not. That’s on my own forum, so I know there is nothing which attempts to hide it. This was already the same with the previous version.

  • @hibou57 You're welcome, it's a feature, you can disable it in opera:flags#overlay-scrollbars 😉

  • Hi Guys.. What about the Chromecast Problem ?


  • What about the Chromecast Problem ?

    Latest comment I saw about it said that they were waiting for some license agreement to be done.

  • Thanks !!

  • New update - Opera developer 45.0.2548.0 😉

    The change log, and the announcement.

    "Unusual for a Thursday, and unusual for the second time one week – we’ve got a developer update for you!

    Recently, we started to receive significantly more crashes on x86 builds. We are still trying to figure out the cause for this sudden boost of crashes. That’s why the Windows 32-bit builds will be provided (for now) without PGO optimization, in order to to help us asses, whether the optimization is to be blamed for this, or not.

    Besides that, there are plenty of ad blocker, and narrow sidebar fixes for you, to start testing this week.

    Known issue: Windows 7 users might notice, that there is a crash notification after the update. We discovered, that it does not cause further issues for Opera after the update, and it will be fixed shortly."
