we’ve got another update for you this week. This time it’s Opera beta, which will be probably the last one before we switch it to Stable.
Linux proprietary codecs support
Opera beta is now able to detect whether the chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra package is installed. As long as this package is up-to-date (45.0.2454.x and newer), Opera can make use of the libraries in this package to provide support for some proprietary codecs for media elements, including H264 and MP3.
New Opera branding
In this release, we have also a number of bugfixes:
– DNA-44054 [Mac] Opera crashes at start with bookmark bar enabled
– DNA-44318 Hidden bookmarks when entering bookmarks manager
– DNA-44494 Enable NPAPI in stable O33
– a few History fixes
For full bugfixes and changes list, please see the changelog.
In this build, Chromium is updated to version 46.0.2490.71.
Please let us know if you find any issues and stay tuned because Opera Stable is just around the corner 🙂
