Instead of assigning all the resources to continue the Opera 12 development, it looks like Norwegian browser maker has decided to take a different route and will be releasing Opera 11.60 (codenamed “Tunny” (meaning Tuna)), before that.
While it might sound like a bad thing for those who are eager to play with the final version of Opera 12, it won’t be much of a wait. According to the official blog post, Opera 11.60 Final will be released “very soon”.
As both versions are developed side by side, Opera 11.60 is set to include some of the Opera 12 features, including:
- A new HTML5 parser (you read more about it here)
- Opera 12 address bar, with search suggestions and bookmark star menu
- New web standards support
On a downside, Opera 11.60 will not include hardware acceleration nor new skins support.
In case you want to download it now, be sure to check a list of know issues as it’s still development.
