Full changelog

  • L33t4opera

    Hi Juan, thanks for the info, and fixes ;-)

  • Piotr Karol Marek Żółtowski

    Why extension developers or theme autors can’t change the name of the extension or theme in Opera addons while in Chrome Web Store is possible to do it? Is it too hard to implement it in Opera addons?

    • Krzysztof Pogłódek

      What youre expect? Its too hard for Opera Team to implement bookmarks since almost year and you want to change in plugins files extension. Dream of cut head…

      • Fhury

        Dream of cut head??

        • YemSalat

          Yeah wtf?)

          • Fhury

            What does that mean?

          • YemSalat

            As in “yeah, what the *heck*
            I did not get what he meant by that either

          • Fhury

            Ah, thanks :)

      • Piotr Karol Marek Żółtowski

        So true ;_;

  • Anton Chelnokov

    Syncing works too sloooow – only 200kbps (85Mb data in AppData/Roaming/Opera Software/Stable transfered on FlashStick per 60 minute of way to home)…

    • Dmitry Kirin

      If I’m not mistaken, Sync does not transfer the profile folder data as is. The largest thing there is usually stash.db. During sync, thumbnails for stashed pages are reconstructed from original locations. The speed is limited by those sites’ response.

      • Anton Chelnokov

        you does not understand me.
        i sync opera with flash stick which i copy opera profile.
        and its too slowly for me)

        How i can see now thumbnails synchronaized now (must be activated in opera://flags), but passwords and hystory not.

        Ctrl+Enter!!!!
        Ctrl+Bckspc!!!!

        its too hard for me…

        this site so slow…

        • Dmitry Kirin

          If file copying is slow, maybe there are too many small files in the Cache folder. You can delete its contents.

          Passwords are encrypted to only work on the same computer and the same user. Opera Sync does not transfer passwords at the time.

          [Если тормозит обычное копирование файлов на флэшку, то это, скорее всего, из-за большого числа файлов кэша. Ну или с флэшкой что-то не так.]

          • Anton Chelnokov

            copying not slow, but slow transfering my flash stick with me from work to home and away XD
            [ЛОЛ]

          • Dmitry Kirin

            Lol I’m slowpoke… A smiley in your original post would do, though. :)
            [Ну смайлики же надо ставить... :) ]

          • TimeShift

            isn’t a sync of encrypted passwords to be used on only one computer a fail by design?

            Sorry, but I see more and more features taken away from Opera – features even present within Google CHROME (which engine Opera is using since Opera 15..) and I really lack a reason why I should even stay with that browser…

  • SQL

    Wow you fixed the issue with http://operasoftware.github.io/upstreamtools/

  • Noplacetorun

    Great, now can you make google’s search by image work again please?

    • MozPri
    • Rafael Luik

      Again, this is caused by Google’s browser sniffing, not Opera.

      • SQL

        But it is Opera who needs to contact Google about this, nothing will happen if Opera won’t stand against Google.

        • Rafael Luik

          No this is not their duty, yet, do you think they haven’t done so?

          • SQL

            So what will they do? Just let it be? Who’s duty is it then?

          • Rafael Luik

            Third-party breaks it, third-party fixes it.

            Or will you develop a page with browser sniffing making the page break in browser X and Y on purpose and then fill bug reports in browsers X and Y’s bug tracking system to make them lose their time processing the bug, examining the code and writing a patch to workaround your browser sniffing so the page works? Of course you won’t, but Google has a pass??

          • SQL

            No, but there’s no way Google isn’t going to fix it if Opera doesn’t pressure them; they very well know it’s all Googles fault and they can speak about this.

          • https://christoph142.wordpress.com/ Christoph142

            What about the one’s who broke it in the first place?

      • Noplacetorun

        Well then devs could try contact google about that. The sutuation was alot worse couple of weeks ago but they’ve had conversation since then it would seem.

        • http://www.facebook.com/hector.maciasayala Hector Macias Ayala

          They were already looking into this.

    • Dmitry Kirin

      Google just fixed it.

  • cgebhard

    I’m using a Win. 8.1 touch device. It’s not possible to directly open any item from the downloads popup by double-tapping. But clicking on the circle next to it successfully opens the containing folder in Explorer.

  • João Gonçalves

    I still can’t install using the Network installer. It tells me that I don’t have Administrator rights. I have to use the offline installer to be able to install.

    • BK

      Hi Joao,
      what windows version do you have? Are you using regular Admin account? At which installation step do you get this message?

      • João Gonçalves

        Hello.

        I’m using Windows 8.1 Update 1.

        I guess I’m using a regular Admin account. I’m the only user in this notebook, and I log in to Windows with my Microsoft Account.

        This problem only happens in Opera Next’s network installer. With Opera Developper’s network installer it doesn’t happen.

        I click “Accept and install” in Opera installer, the I click “Yes” in the User Account Control, then I get this first error:
        http://i57.tinypic.com/ifmqdk.jpg

        (translation: An error occurred when trying to install Opera)

        I click OK and then I get a second error:
        http://i58.tinypic.com/2igon0o.jpg

        (translation: Fail at obtaining execution privileges at administration level)

        • mziolkowska

          Could you send us file net_installer.log, which you should find in your local ~temp folder:

          C:Users[YOUR USERNAME]AppDataLocalTempOpera NetInstallernet_installer.log

          mziolkowska@opera.com

          • João Gonçalves

            Done.

    • mziolkowska

      Thanks for comment.
      Can you give us more details, when do you get this dialog about error (maybe you could provide screenshot) and which Operating System and what type of user account are you using.

      • João Gonçalves

  • Shacha GC

    still waiting to see a Bookmarks fused speedial an my notes back AND OPERA LINK PLEAAAAASE Thank You

  • INFINUM

    DNA-19147 On “about:opera” checking for updates shows an error.
    Hallelujah!

    • Fhury

      +1 for the epic pic :)

  • YemSalat

    This was probably mentioned before, but would be good to be able to remove a file from the downloads popup.

    • Stanislav Stratil

      Yea, downloads popup really needs some improvements. And not just that.

    • rblanca

      Agree …yes please it’s very annoying!

    • Jan Banan

      This is kind of annoying, but at least it’s possible to delete individual files via the “Show more”-button.

  • Cryio

    Dunno what you guys introduced with this update, but Opera 22 now scores 2 more points than Opera 21 on html5test.com.

  • NicolaMantovani

    Can you PLEASE stop changing back the default search engine to google with every freacking update? I want to use bing, ffs.

    • icetom

      probably they get money for this.

      I can not think of any other reason why it is always changed. I suppose its not a bug they always implement.

      • NicolaMantovani

        Well, if this is a new thing, it must be clearly stated by the devs.

        But I hope it’s a bug, I think it started happening fairly recently, maybe with the switch from Next 21 to Next 22…

        • Rafael Luik

          From 20 to 21 it happened due to some changes on how Opera treats the list of search engines but I think it shouldn’t happen at every update. It’s probably a bug.

      • http://www.facebook.com/hector.maciasayala Hector Macias Ayala

        They’re supposed to get money from all the search engines included, they don’t do it for free.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Here the default search engine didn’t change. I’ll check again on the next update.

  • http://zdenekvecera.cz/ Zdenek Vecera

    “DNA-20069 [Win] Ctrl + Backspace in edit field navigates to the directory up” – thanks! :)

  • invilator

    puppleszew.pl not open

    • rrzepecki

      Thanks for reporting this. It looks like a problem with smarty framework that thinks Opera is a mobile application and gives us a mobile version which is actually broken on that site. We will take care of this.

  • zeke

    Olá Juan,

    DNA-19147 On “about:opera” checking for updates shows an error.

    not fixed for macs. OperaNext still > error

    i am going to stick to the stable version. im not a tester or developer anyhow.
    just curious. many thanks for a wicked browser. love it. all the best fellas, zeke

  • zeke

    clarification: OpNext still error when I check manually (in about opera) for updates. dont know about the rest (seamless updates).
    all the best,
    zeke

  • Dmitry Kirin

    Wow, Google fixed their image search! Extensions like Search Image are now working without a user agent string hack.

    • Alexandre Cavaco

      They already had fixed it some days ago… but Google Maps isn’t yet 100%, 3D tilting doesn’t work yet

  • Dave Anders

    Many extensions’s option page don’t work now.
    Also, could you please add back the little button in the address bar that activates all plug-ins in the page whenever they are deactivated in the options? Many of them don’t show the play button when rendered, like twitch chat and instagram videos. It would be even better if you could add a menu that lists all the plug-ins in the page.

  • vladon

    What about Ctrl+Enter behavior?!

    • http://www.facebook.com/hector.maciasayala Hector Macias Ayala

      What about it?

      • vladon

        Since 21 version Ctrl+enter refreshes page, when in textarea, e.g. in comment post form, instead of post comment.

  • Guest

    This is kind of annoying, but at least it’s possible to delete individual files via Show more.

  • mu3san

    … can you make mouse gestures customizable? i really dont like that you cant change them…

    • Piotr Karol Marek Żółtowski

      “Configurable gestures. We won’t add it, because we believe it is too geeky feature.” ~Zhenis Beisekov

  • SQL

    Selecting text in address bar with cursor doesn’t work correctly.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      What is not working? It seems ok here.

      • SQL

        Weird, now it’s working with me too.. It stated happening as i had Opera open for 10+ hours yesterday, i have directwrite enabled so that may cause it but it was really weird. Also some dev from Opera committed a patch that had “caused issues with selecting text” so i thought it may be cause of that.

  • J Mercado

    Need to add “tool” to export speed dial settings to complement bookmark importer.

  • iG0Lka

    Again, do not fix PROBLEM c small print interface Opera, when the hiDpi

    19 version everything worked perfectly had no problems with the font size in the interface!

    Long will you scoff?

    New versions can not be used on monitors 30″ !11!!

  • L33t4opera

    New update for the Opera Next: 22.0.1471.40.

  • Vahriin Sahqon Vulom

    I keep getting an error saying “Failed to obtain administrator-level execution privileges.” when ever I hit accept and install for the new browser. What does this mean? I could install it just fine til this version came out.
