Well, here is an unexpected move. If you were hoping to see 12.50 Final later this year, prepare to see a new branch first. Why? It looks like the Norwegian browser maker has renamed its internal version of the Opera 12.50 web browser and released it as Opera 12.10 Beta RC.
Unfortunately, unlike their previous releases, the following build is pretty much unusable. With HWA enabled, Opera 12.10 will crash when loading Facebook, the scaling is completely broken, making it annoying to zoom in/out of various web pages and images. In addition to that, WordPress “Post New” HTML section is completely broken with lots of annoyances and crashes when using “Visual” view.
As far as new features and changes go, Opera 12.10 now supports high resolution displays, offers WebM performance enhancements and dozens of bug fixes.
Check out the official post for a complete changelog.
