There are stable versions and there are testing versions, once they are sure most of the bugs have been fixed the testing versions become the new stable versions.
See the icon for the menu next to where it says Opera forums at the top of the page? On that menu, click on Opera blogs, then Desktop. In the right column will be a set of links for the latest Stable, Beta and Developer versions; the Beta version is 37.
