Opera Mini emerges from beta on Windows Phone

It's been nine months since Opera revealed that it was bringing its Mini browser to the Windows Phone platform, with an open beta beginning shortly after that announcement. In February, the app was unpublished from the Windows Phone Store, although this was attributed to an 'unexpected hiccup', and it quickly returned.

But today, the app got an update to version 8.0.4.66, and with that update, it has finally emerged from its beta phase of development on Microsoft's mobile OS.

However, apart from removing the 'beta' tag, this latest version doesn't appear to bring any new features - although it's likely to include the usual bug fixes and under-the-hood improvements.

The company published a video today marking this important milestone for the browser, "introducing the new Opera Mini for Windows Phone":

The Opera Mini browser is now available to download free via the Windows Phone Store.
