Build 8701/3607/543 Released | Opera 9.12

Help us help you!

By borg. Friday, 19. January 2007, 16:10:04

Attention: This build is experimental.

It contains a feature reporting system that will report back usage of a number of features to Opera once per week. This allows us to know more about how you all use our product in an anonymous way.

The idea is that while some people tell us about their wishes and concerns in the blog and forums, thousands of people download the weeklies without giving direct feedback. By using a build with feature reporting, they will also contribute to improving the product for all of us.

Yes, you can turn the feature off:

opera:config#UserPrefs|EnableUsageReport

Normally we don't ask you to install a weekly on top of a final version, but if you dare do so this time it will help us get more correct data, making sure that we continue to make a better browser for YOU.

So, what does the report contain?

You can check yourself, a copy of the next report is stored in the Opera profile directory, under usagereport/report.xml. It reports things like what preferences you have enabled or not, whether you use Widgets or not, and how many bookmarks you have. Only numbers*, no domain names or other sensitive data.

*) Excluding Visa and MasterCard :innocent:

about, linux, opera, desktop

In this week's weekly we enabled a new experimental feature - usage report.

Usage… of what?

Well, of your browser setup, of your preferences, of the features you use, or don't use in Opera - in short, of how you really use Opera. You often told us how you would like Opera to be, or behave, which features you would like to add, etc. But we don't know how you actually use Opera. This report is done in a completely anonymous way, no personal or sensitive details are sent to us. And yes, for the paranoid, there is a way of disabling the feature:

opera:config#UserPrefs|EnableUsageReport

We usually do not recommend to install weeklies over final installations - but in this case we might make an exception. So, for the daredevils:

take a backup of your profile.

make sure you have a backup of your profile (twice should be enough, right?)

install this week's weekly build as your main build.

In this way we could really see how you really use your Opera - and not the test build you customize to death.

Now… what does this really look like?

You can easily inspect the details of the report in ~/.opera/usagereport/report.xml. Let me give you an example of what this might look like. Take my own report (I'll upload it as a .txt file for easier reading). There are a few things that might be interesting for us:

I use Opera for mail (and have 99094 messages)

I use Opera for feeds (and am subscribed to 91 of them)

I visited 1301 pages last week (is that a small number?)

I use several windows (4)

I use a lot of tabs! (average is 343, with a peak at 377)

I allow 20 max connections to server and 128 in total (I need that for all those tabs)

Almost everything in QuickPrefs is disabled

I have my own key bindings

I don't use BitTorrent nor Widgets (who does?…)

And how does your Opera look like? What do you use, or tweak, or configure? Mine looks pretty plain - but don't let yourself be fooled: there are 343 tabs, it's just that… I disable the tab bar…

Build 8713/3620/547 Released | Opera 9.20

New weekly build

By olli. Friday, 2. February 2007, 17:11:27

Hi

We added experimental developer tool to Opera. Go to tools/advanced/Developer Console to try it out. (will not work with js and popups disabled)

Sorry no static linux build today :-(

Changelog

Unneeded scrollbar now gone on adobe.com

Some fraud protection improvements

Made proxy authentication work better

Added Developer console

Usage report only asks 1 in 1000

Fixes to entering hostname: port in addressbar

Javascript scroll events now fired on mouseweel

Server Expiry header is now respected even if the time exceeds user preference

UNIX

Fixed master password expiry time on unix

Added Shared X memory. Should now be quite a bit faster

Note: On FreeBSD shared memory doesn't work by FreeBSD design. You need to run this as as root:

# sysctl kern.ipc.shm_allow_removed=1

(We'll be adding a workaround for this in later builds.)

"Is that my blog on your Speed Dial?"

By borg. Wednesday, 28. February 2007, 16:43:57desktop, WEEKLY, opera mini, speed dial

Opera Mini already adds Speed Dial shortcuts to the first 9 links on the start page, so you can just press *1 to get to your favorite site on your phone. Now we do the same thing for desktop, where Ctrl+1 to Ctrl+9 gives you direct access to your 9 favorites. When you open a new tab, the 9 Speed Dial sites will be displayed with pretty thumbnails, a single mouse click away

Why Speed Dial?

Bookmarks often fall into two categories:

A bunch of sites you bookmark because you may want to visit them again someday

5 or 6 sites you visit very often

Speed Dial is an elegant way to address the second category. When you open a new tab, it will often be to go to one of your favorite sites, so why not just show them there instead of an entirely blank page? Adding your favorites to Speed Dial is also very, very simple: Just click the button and choose a site from your Top 10 history or from the currently open tabs. Deleting them is just as simple, with the X in the upper right corner.

Cool stuff:

You can reload all thumbnails by pressing Ctrl+R, giving you a quick overview of whether your favorite pages have changed, or just reload one of them from the right-click menu (nice for Web mail!).

We're partnering with Yahoo! on both Mobile and Desktop, which explains the new search field. You can of course configure it from search preferences.

You can drag links to thumbnails and even rearrange thumbnails by dragging them on top of each other.

You can hide the entire thing with the "Hide Speed Dial" button in the lower right corner if you don't like it.

So, what's on *your* Speed Dial?

Known issues:

Overrides your search.ini file instead of merging them: Make a backup before installing.

Thumbnails should not reload on every startup.

"Reload every..." is missing from the context menu.

Middle-click doesn't open pages in the background.

Back button doesn't go back to Speed Dial.

Several skin and display problems.

Contains some hardcoded not translatable strings.

The "What is Speed Dial" link doesn't go anywhere.

Forgetting to put your partner's blog in SD1 can have dramatic consequences

Changelog:

Fixed several crashes when printing, sending mail, removing active web panel...

Lots of minor fixes.

Start bar is replaced by Speed Dial, Top-10 and Bookmark buttons can be found in the Appearance dialog and added to other toolbars.

Canvas: Stopped drawing lines from origin (0, 0) when using path functions in accordance with changes in WHATWG canvas spec. Note to Widget developers: This may cause problems with your Widgets if you use Canvas.

I looove speed dial... I never used the Start bar, so I don't miss that. But I do think that they need to leave it there for the people that do use it. Hopefully next weekly they will both be available...

:D Last week, I had not announced this latest build because Opera team had suppressed the Start bar. So, No Start bar = no build announcement from me. :)

Next build, the return of the Start bar. wohhhhoooooo!! :woot:

Quick update on CSS3 selectors

Tuesday, 27. February 2007, 00:09:51

Opera, selectors, css3

I previously reported that all CSS3 selectors were implemented in an internal build of Opera, but seven of these were disabled in the builds due to various issues. While this is still the case with the very latest builds, there has been progress with the two selectors that were labelled as buggy on the CSS3 selectors test. The previous results were as follows:

From the 43 selectors 34 have passed, 2 are buggy and 7 are unsupported (Passed 460 out of 578 tests)

The latest results are now as follows:

From the 43 selectors 36 have passed, 0 are buggy and 7 are unsupported (Passed 464 out of 578 tests)

I'm fairly confident that when the seven unsupported selectors are turned on we will pass all of the tests. Now to concentrate on other bugs and features?€?

This should be a direct link to the latest build of 9.20 (build 3630) from a few weeks ago. I'd wait until tomorrow though, they might release another build. It has been 2 weeks or so since the last update.

Build 8767/3664/628 Released | Opera 9.20

Approaching 9.2

By feldgendler. Friday, 30. March 2007, 15:24:54

Привет всем нашим пользователям! Сегодня моя очередь объявлять еженедельный выпуск, поэтому я напишу по-русски. Спасибо пользователям из России за поддержку! Теперь у вас есть свой человек в Desktop Team. :-)

Самое важное в новом выпуске — исправления, касающиеся Flash 9 под Linux. Теперь видео с YouTube можно смотреть в полноэкранном режиме! (Ещё можно закрывать надоедливую Flash-рекламу.)

Другие изменения

Добавлен автоматический поиск из адресной строки при вводе более одного слова;

Оформление Speed Dial оптимизировано по скорости;

В запросах BitTorrent появилась поддержка необязательного ?ключа?, это означает, что больше торрентов будут работать;

Исправлены проблемы с прозрачными областями в некоторых виджетах под UNIX;

Появились пакеты .6 для архитектуры ppc-linux, которые будут (ну, должны) работать на PS3, если вы поставили туда Linux!

Now in English...b>

Hello to all our users! Today it's my turn to announce the weekly build, so why don't I post in Russian? Thanks to the Russian users for your support. Now you have an insider in Desktop Team! :-)

The most important is that we've fixed some issues with Flash 9 on Linux. This means that you can now watch YouTube video fullscreen! (And close annyoing Flash ads.)[/quoteOther changesb>

Added support for automatic search from address bar when entering more than one word;

Some speed optimizations in the Speed Dial skin;

Added support for the optional “key” in BitTorrent requests, should make more torrent downloads work;

Fixed issue with transparent areas in some widgets on UNIX;

we have now ppc-linux .6 packages: that means that they work (okay, should work) on your PS3! — if you installed Linux on it.Official changelogb>

Build 8769/3666/631 Released | Opera 9.20

Easter egg!

By borg. Tuesday, 3. April 2007, 14:46:02

After a boring weekend we're finally allowed to be funny again

Personally I really look forward to the dress as a troll day, hope to bring you pictures of that

In the meantime, here's a new build with minor fixes all over the place. Our QA is too busy testing to even write a changelog, so finding the fixes will be our way of hunting easter eggs, I guess...

Known issue

The .6 rpm doesn't start on Linux. You can fix it by replacing

"OPERA_BINARYDIR=/usr/lib/opera/9.20-20070403.10/" with

"OPERA_BINARYDIR=/usr/lib/opera/9.20-20070403.6/"

in the startup script "/usr/bin/opera"

Official changelog

Changelog for Opera 9.20 beta for Mac

Changelog for Opera 9.20 beta for UNIX

Known changelog

Further improvements to flash 9 plug-in on UNIX
