The summer is coming to an end, people are coming home from holiday with smiling, sun kissed faces ready to start working/school again. The folks here at Opera have been working hard all summer. And here is the result.
This time we have a rather large changelog for you. We have two new extension APIs, Screenshot and Resource Loader, and we've expanded URL Filter. This was previously released in a labs release, but has now landed in mainline. See this post for more information.
There are several performance improvements, lots of bug fixes. Our update WebSocket implementation has been updated to rfc6455. The UA string has been trimmed a bit, removing the obsolete crypto strength token and the UI language that was only causing us problems. We've also dropped prefixes for CSS Transitions, Animations and Transforms. And the current date group header stays on top when scrolling in M2. To name a few.
HWA and WebGL are disabled by default, so if you want to test hardware acceleration, remember to enable opera:config#UserPrefs|EnableHardwareAcceleration...
