Fresh Opera developer 46

  • The first, initial version of the Opera developer 46.0.2556.0 😉

    The change log, and the announcement.

    "It’s unusual to have a new developer version on Friday, thus we also have an unusual non-default screenshot to start with – all in dark.

    Important things first

    This initial build of Opera 46 comes with important fixes for the out of memory bug when using VPN, and one nasty crash, that might appear during startup. It’s important for us to verify them – our lab tests suggest, that there should be no further problems, but to be completely sure we need your help. Weekend comes, so browse a lot.

    Further UI changes

    In addition, there are multiple UI-related fixes. The most visible ones are addressing the misbehaving tool-tips, both in normal and private mode. Changes specific to Mac, such as removing little visual glitches, and minor fixes for ad blocker have been made.

    Under the hood

    This version comes with an updated Chromium to version 59.0.3047.4, and enabled expensive background tabs throttling (opera://flags/#background-tab-throttling-max-delay-30s). You can try it out yourself: background timer throttling demo. If you encounter any problems related to background tabs and their behavior let us know."

  • I always wondered if it wouldn't be easier to have just a topic for each version of Opera instead of creating one when the version is in Developer channel and then a new one when it reaches beta.

  • Messenger and Whatsapp in the side bar doesnt work. After logging in i have always this: http://prnt.sc/etnths in messenger. I'm on linux mint.

  • New update - Opera developer 46.0.2567.0 😉

    The change log, and the announcement.

    "Today’s set of changes include various fixes, and improvements:

    – More audio and video changes, including fix for a nasty memory leak.

    – Installation package is smaller.

    – Ad block improvement - support for tag names.

    – Sound notifications were turned on, while sidebar was unpinned.

    – On macOS it’s easier to move window if multiple tabs are opened. Area to start dragging between the plus button, and the tabs menu got slightly bigger.

    Known issue: you might notice, that some sidebar elements are blinking (especially, when you have configured the sidebar, or use synchronization). We’re already working on this, because we realize how annoying it is."

    The Chromium has been updated to version 59.0.3053.3.
