Opera 9.5 – More Details Revealed

By | August 26, 2007 | 3 Comments


OperaThere was some (one?) complain(s) in the “No Opera 9.5 or Opera Mini 4 Beta 2 or Final Today” post that Opera team haven’t posted anything in THEIR blog. So here you go, they did it on Saturday evening.

Whole post tells about Opera 9.5 developing, there are still many issues which needs to be fixed before releasing first public build and as Junyor (Tim Altman) said: “We have strict quality standards that have not yet been met”. That explains everything.

New Features

Opera always hides most important features which will be available in their next browser release, whether it’s Opera for desktop, Opera for mobile phone or any other one. I really like that. It makes you excite about something what you don’t know and when only a day or two are being left before release, they start to tease you even more. Thank you for that.

OK, new features/fixes. So not many was revealed, but here are the few:

An ability to manually update newsfeeds, just press F5 and you are done (I hope they will add some kind of button in the interface too).
Remember when you’ve clicked View > Encoding menu and it didn’t do anything for messages? Fixed.

That’s all. Let’s wait.

    “Opera always hides most important features which will be available in their next browser release, whether it’s Opera for desktop, Opera for mobile phone or any other one.”

    Other successful companies, approach this in a slightly different way. Mysteriously enough they seem to make people interested in their products based on what it will bring to the market, so that on the release day nothing less of an euphoria occurs.

    Maybe Apple has something to learn from Opera Software?

    I think that Apple is to cocky to learn anything from other companies ;-)

    i think, that Jakob was a bit sarcastic :)

    building hype on nothing is rather difficult
