[quote][size=4][color="#FF0000"]Introducing new bugs[/color][/size]
As promised last week, here's the first build with built-in Fraud Protection. It's a very early preview of the technology, so everything is not entirely done yet, some sites actually show up wrong (silly bug with CNET sites!), and the icons are kind of ugly. Even the version number is wrong

But that's what this blog is all about: Bleeding edge. Enjoy![/quote]
[b]Known issues[/b]
High CPU usage on Google maps
UNIX - Crash when changing file handler from download dialog
Opera will in some cases not start on upgrading. (use clean install)

[b]Changelog[/b]
Improved stability
Prevented page reload when navigating to "#"
Fixed problem where pages showed the incorrect favicon
Fixed problem where multimedia keyboard shortcuts would not work when Opera was focused
Attempted to fix problems experienced on some pages when using a slow Internet connection by increasing opera:config#Network|HTTPLoadingDelayedTimeout to 60 seconds
Fixed bug where document.body.currentStyle.height reported the wrong value
Fixed bug where currentStyle.width was not correct if width is set by a script
Fixed bug where 'Open all' from Widgets menu was broken
Fixed bug where BCC header was visible to recipients in resent messages
Fixed bug where cookies could not be removed using XMLHttpRequest
Fixed bug where one could not log in to Gmail with "Accept only cookies for the site I visit" enabled
Changed Mozilla ID string spoof to mimic Firefox
Fixed bug where browser.js wasn't cached correctly

Made IE ID string spoof as Windows on Linux/UNIX and Mac

[u]Build 8649/3554/490 Released[/u]
[quote]Another weekly for you, smoking hot from the build servers, even our testers haven't played much with these before you, so be nice to them!

What you will see:

Fraud protection is not enabled by default anymore. We basically had to turn it on by default in the first weeklies to make sure we got as much feedback as possible in the limited time we had.

However, it's a new feature and we think users may need some time to get used to this idea, so we've made it an opt-in feature for now. Opera is about giving users the choice, after all.

Technically, there's a difference in how we transmit the data to the site check server. We now use https when we send information about an https server, to ensure that the trust information is at least as reliable as the original content. We still prefer to use http most of the time, since we're not very comfortable with sending home information that our users can't easily inspect.

Other changes:

We've fixed a number of bugs since last week, including the super-annoying gzip cache bug. NOTE: You may need to empty your cache before everything goes back to normal.

What's going on:

The desktop team was represented in the first Opera Backstage Russia event, in Ivanovo last week.

Next week we'll also participate in Webmaster World in Las Vegas. Be sure to drop by the Opera booth if you're there!

Yesterday, W3C released the first public working draft of the Widgets 1.0 specification, largely based on the current Opera implementation.[/quote]
[b]Changes since last weekly[/b]
Fixed bug where "Go to URL" feature deselects last one or two characters of a URL
Fixed bug where newsfeed count did not updated in Mail panel status bar
Fixed bug where cnn.com didn't always finish loading
Fixed bug where accesskeys didn't work right on frame pages
[color="Firebrick"][b][u]Fixed bug[/u] where Gzipped pages was not decoded when loaded from cache[/b][/color]
Added preference to disable trust button in address bar opera:config#SecurityPrefs|EnableTrustButton
Fixed Finnish translation

Excellent been waiting all week for Gzip to be fixed.

Now if only they'll make the icons for the fuad filter to be better, I don't feel that they fit in.

Sorry to somewhat hijack this thread, but does anyone know how to create a tab close button that isnt on the tabs themselves, but on the end of the tab bar, like in firefox?

[/quote]

tools >> Preferences >> Advanced >> Tabs (left item) >> Untick "show close button on each tab"

This is [b]Better[/b] than firefox as you can now minimize, and resize tabs along with closeing them.

We have fixed some important problems in this build and we are now much closer to release. Please remember that these builds are not well tested and not intended as production releases :-)[/quote]
[b]Changelog[/b]
Windows media plugin now works even if java is disabled
Fixed hanging when hovering some pages, for example elkjop.no

Several Memory leak and crash fixes
[color="#CC0000"]Wand data is stored in a new format - please read below![/color]
[quote]We made a change to the format Wand data is stored in: this means that if you upgrade to this build, you should not downgrade to a build with the previous format, as you would lose your Wand data. If you choose to upgrade an existing Opera install (note that we recommend against this with weekly builds), [b][u][color="#CC0000"]and you want to be on the safe side, please make a manual backup of the file wand.dat in your profile before ugprading.[/color][/u][/b] The new format also might mean that *some* data for logins *might* not be available anymore: we would very much appreciate feedback about this, with a URL to the page where you lost your Wand data.

You may have read about a phishing attack on MySpace that took advantage of
automatic form filling in other browsers. Although Opera was not directly
affected, these new changes make it even harder for users to be tricked by this attack.[/quote]

[quote]We would like feedback specifically on any regressions you might notice with plug-ins on Linux. Note that the fixes might not fix all issues with Flash 9 yet, but you should see improvements.

A little note on where to enable smooth scrolling on UNIX: you find a checkbox to enable the feature in the advanced tab of the preferences, under "Browsing".

For our FreeBSD users that would like to experiment with Flash on FreeBSD: getting Flash to work is (unfortunately) not completely straight-forward yet, but here is a little HOWTO:
