First Opera 16 Build ReleasedNo mail reader in sight.

It looks like guys at Opera are busy working on features that did not make it to the final build of Opera 15. Today, they have added a support for Windows jumplists and auto form filler with more to come in the very near future.

According to Sebastian Baberowski, Opera is currently working on bookmarks, Opera Link, tab improvements (such as ability to pin them) as well as themes that should ease the transition pain when migrating from v12 to v16. Thankfully, they promised to release a new build featuring some of these enhancements in “a few weeks”, so stay tuned.
