[Updated] OPERA 12.10 (next stable release)

Opera 12.10 beta candidate, now with support for Retina Macs

quote:
The next stable release of Opera will be version 12.10 (12.50 will continue afterwards with further updates).

This build takes all the work done thus far and adds a nice new feature for Mac users (more on that in a moment), plus loads of bug fixes and a big Core upgrade. One nice highlight of the Core upgrade is greatly improved WebM performance. Though there are plenty more gems in the changelog below. With such a large number of important fixes and improvements we believe we are very close to a Beta quality version of Opera 12.10, so you can expect one coming your way very soon.

As an extra bonus for our Mac users running the latest MacBook Pros, Opera 12.10 sees the addition of "Retina" support. With twice the pixel density, this should give much crisper text and detail to the Web experience. The build comes with a updated skin, full of pretty, high-resolution icons.

Text on Web pages will automatically take advantage of the higher resolution, without affecting overall design. Opera’s implementation is like Safari’s, meaning that a CSS pixel will no longer correspond to a device pixel. Graphics may look blurry, because it is typically delivered in a lower resolution than the new machines are able to display. To deliver a unscaled high resolution image, include an image twice the size as normal. For example: . See Apple’s 2012 WWDC Session Video #602 “Delivering Web Content on High Resolution Displays” for more technical details.

To target which users get the high resolution graphics (as to not push larger file sizes on users who cannot take advantage on their lower resolution displays) we have two new APIs which are on pair with Safari’s:

• window.devicePixelRatio will return 2 on a Retina display, and 1 or undefined on a low-res display. Target "two or higher" to future proof your high resolution aware site design.
• @media -o-device-pixel-ratio will be 2/1 on a Retina display and 1/1 on a low resolution display. (If you already target the iPhone 4, you may know that there, the ratio is 3/2.)

As always, thanks for testing and helping to make 12.10 the best Opera ever.

said by Opera :
People say that working at Opera makes you see the world a bit differently. Sometimes that may be the case. But once in a while, we can't help but pick up on amazing coincidences, such as this Starwoods hotel that looks like the Opera Next icon come to life.
Thanks for the update chachazz See Profile!

Another Opera 12.10 build
By Haavardhaavard. Thursday, September 13, 2012 2:27:39 PM

quote:
We've fixed a couple of common crashes, and SPDY for Turbo has been disabled for the time being, as there were some problems with it.

As you can see from the known issue below, hardware acceleration will be somewhat unstable. We're also seeing some platform-specific issues where it would be nice to know what platform you are all on.

For that reason, we have a couple of requests:
• Try without Hardware Acceleration before reporting a problem (or always test with HWA off)
• Report your operating system/platform

This is a candidate for the beta release of Opera 12.10. The fixes are listed in the changelog below.

We encourage you to test without hardware acceleration if you are having problems, and report whether disabling HWA fixes it or not. Including your platform/OS details is always useful.

Friday's 12.10 Snapshot, more bugs to kill
By olli. Friday, September 21, 2012 9:32:40 AM

quote:
We have decided we wanted to do some more polish before we are ready with beta, so you will see some more snapshots with more bugfixing.

In this snapshot we were able to kill a rather nasty NSL (non-stop loading) issue that our Linux and Mac users were experiencing. We are looking into other NSL issues, if you notice any please try to be specific about what sites you encounter them on.

Happy bughunting!

Opera 12.10 Beta Candidate 4
By Ruarí Ødegaardruario. Friday, September 28, 2012 7:03:59 AM

quote:
We have been busy fixing crashes, NSL problems and other serious bugs and we are now ready to restart the ramp up towards a Beta again. So consider this Beta Candidate 4. yes

This build also adds a nice little feature that many have often requested "resizable text areas". Yes, we know there were already a couple of nice userJS and extensions that add this feature but we feel it is time to move the functionality into the default setup.

Opera 12.10 Beta Candidate 5

12.10, beta candidate
Before leaving the office we decided to add a few fixes to this week's build. Mac users might notice improvement in scrolling performance, especially on pages with lots of plugins. Also we fixed numerous crashes and a regression in previous build some of you could notice.

Just remember that this is not (yet) a final release... it is a beta developmental version. The following red-letter text caveat published in Opera's development team blog applies:
quote:
WARNING: This is a development snapshot: It contains the latest changes, but may also have severe known issues, including crashes and data loss situations. In fact, it may not work at all.

Yes, for most of us. But over time, as one reads the blog comments for various versions, they discover problem comments by the occasional tester whose Opera version would not even start up after updating to a new snapshot. So it's not totally tongue-in-cheek...

Happy Eyeballs

quote:
As the title says, this build brings support of RFC 6555 - Happy Eyeballs to Opera! Now Opera tries to connect to IPv4 and IPv6 hosts simultaneously and chooses whichever responds the faster. This will eliminate connection delays for in cases when IPv4 or IPv6 is slow or unavailable. Also this build fixes another NSL bug. Look after any regressions, though!

Following numerous requests at forums here and there, we fixed a few long-standing issues with navigating back and fast-forward, restoring session after powerloss situations and handling keys on some platforms.

Closing up on final
By Tuesday, October 30, 2012 12:15:00 PM

Since Opera's HQ is covered with snow it seemed about the right time to get rid of the black window bug DSK-375761. So now you can not only minimize Opera window, but also restore it back, yay! Also Ctrl+1 opens Speed Dial #1 instead of search panel, and Windows users can again type funny characters like ☺ just by holding alt and entering their number!

As title says, we're getting close to final, so if you see some serious issue which must be fixed before that — shout now or it won't be fixed until next release.

The build will start rolling out through auto-update within a few hours.

Known issues
DSK-376420 (Check for updates dialog cannot be opened)
[OS X] CSS transformed web fonts not displayed
[OS X] No 64-bit build for this snapshot
