Notable Opera Features and when they arrived

Recently updated to add the significant changes that arrived for Opera 38 and 39.  It looks like 40 will be out soon as well.

It should be noted that Opera features history and Changelogs have not been updated since version 37 so for the time being it will be a little more important to keep up with Notable Opera Features and when they arrived.

Notable Opera Features and when they arrived

Converted the page to a table view.  Today, 9/15/15, Opera came out with a nice new release adding and upgrading many new features that I have been looking forward to for a while now.

Update 1/19/16: Revised the notes for Opera Beta/Developer notes and separated them into Beta version and Developer version.

Update 3/15/16: Recently updated with Opera 36.  There is only one note for this version of Opera: Redesign of speed dial, but it is an amazing improvement over recent versions.  It is the best since version 32 came out.

Trump selects Betsy DeVos to be the head of U.S. Department of Education?!! She is a major supporter of homeschooling, school choice, and vouchers; everything the department of education is against!  This is really great news.  I am curious how this new presidency works out.   ref

There wasn't too much to write home about with the last few versions of Opera; mostly bug fixes and minor improvements.  The most significant was faster load times in Opera 41.

In Opera 43 Developer we have address bar prerenderer.  This will intelligently start to load the pages that you are probably going to visit.  Horizontal mouse movements will now select text from links instead of dragging the link.  very useful and Opera 12 users will remember that one.

Opera 42 Beta has the rss reader in the address bar so that it operates much like the Opera 12 rss reader did.  Right click on the left sidebar will bring up the option to select which items you would like displayed in the sidebar.

version 7.3 build 0

Filed under:website — vanderjagt.dc @ 10:42 PM

  1. The site is now mobile friendly.
  2. Added some css to the admin page for managing tags and linked the “number of times used” numbers to the tag itself.
  3. search feature updated to 5.8 to display two alternate dashes and the possessive single quote correctly in the search results.
  4. Removed the ID# that was listed before each news post result.

Making the site mobile friendly is actually a large change which prompted the move to 7.3. I still have some refinements I want to make to the layout, but these should mostly be quite minor in comparison. Upcoming changes include making the admin pages mobile friendly, refining the layout for a few content edit pages, continue to make the site more mobile friendly and to load faster.
