Add-on API not working

  • It seems that since yesterday, running this:

    opr.addons.installExtension(
    string id,
    function success_callback,
    function error_callback
    )

    returns an error of "Could not fetch data from the Opera add-ons catalog".

    This prevents installation of add-ons places that aren't the official add-ons site.

    Is there any news regarding this?
    Is it known yet?
    Are there workarounds? (As a developer, I could just post my add-on link to the official add-ons page, but that would drastically reduce 'conversion' rates).

    Thanks
