    Thanks for this Opera beta 40.0.2308.26 update after more than a week break !

  • ive

    Thanks for the Update 🙂
    I have one little problem with sync. When I check my synced speeddial online (https://sync.opera.com/web/#) there’s one speeddial entry that’s not on my computer. When I open my computers speeddial in opera on my android phone, it’s not there either. Is there a way to delete it? I fear that it might multiply or make problems in the future :/

  • redfox

    What about an update of Opera Stable 39?

    • BK

      planned next week.

      • Daivy Merlijs

        With VPN included?

        • BK

          Nope, we are still testing and improving the feature. For now you can use dev and beta stream, optionally switch chrome://flags/?search=vpn#browser-vpn in final, no guarantee it will work though.

          • Daivy Merlijs

            Still not a release date for the VPN ?

          • Leonardo Gomes

            I would guess it may come when Opera 40 reaches stable channel.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          New features usually aren’t added by a minor (bug fix, etc) update.

  • kesha2000

    Thanks for the DNA-51595 fix! It’s been hurting me on a tablet for a while.

    The only thing i wish now is long press to context menu touch action was according to Windows 10 system settings. For now you have to hold your finger ridiculously long for context menu (or selection) to show up. It really spoils overall nice tablet experience on Opera.

    • Aneta Reluga

      Glad you liked the fix. 🙂
      As for the touch experience, currently there’s work ongoing to evaluate and improve it.

      • kesha2000

        Nice! As a tablet user I appreciate any improvements in this regard.
        Btw, that pop out copy/paste menu is very convenient!

    • Mikolaj Boc

      That’s one of ideas we need. Thanks!

  • yigido

    Translation suggestion on VPN feature (Turkish)
    Please use “En uygun konum” or “En iyi konum” instead of “Optimal konum”
    Please see the string in UI: https://s21.postimg.io/fr083aa07/screenshot_117.png
    Should I create a report for this?

    • Kornelia

      Please do that. Thank you.

      • Aneta Reluga

        Good news: the suggested translation fix was approved and will be available in one of the future updates. 🙂

        • yigido

          Thank you 🙂 I already reported here: DNAWIZ-6136
          Can you please tell me? Which one is preferred?
          Thanks

          • Aneta Reluga

            As far as I can see in the system, the Team preferred the “En uygun konum” term. Thanks a lot!

          • yigido

            Thank you for the correction.

  • Dask

    Still can’t add a speeddial link

    • novainc

      I am affected by this as well. I am on Linux 64bits (up-to-date Ubuntu 16.04).

    • Damian eDameXxX Stępnik

      Workaround: add page to “Speed Dial” directory in bookmarks so this new link will show in Speed Dial page as well.

  • Fil Day

    Do you have in plan to add “DisebleDirectWrite” flag?

  • Corzo

    I don’t know if this is already reported or is only me with this issue.

    http://prnt.sc/cd5zn3

    The problem is even disabling all extensions, cleaning the history or in private mode
    the issue persists, only goes away disabling hardware acceleration in the main options or the flag Hardware-accelerated video decode.

    http://prntscr.com/cd5zpo

    The PPAPI is up to date 22.0.0.209

    I’ve been with this issue since the first release of this 40 stream, if I revert to the 39 version there is no problem, the beta channel has been my daily browser since the first next release and this is my first major trouble. Even in the 41 developer the problem persist, only in the 39 version is fine.

    • Aneta Reluga

      Thanks. It is now reported.

      • Corzo

        Thank you Aneta for the quick response.

        • Ari

          It happens the same to me. PPAPI has nothing to do with it since it’s html5 player not flash. For temporary fix but only on youtube install Disable Youtube HTML5 Player extension, it will use flash player and have hw acceleration too. That extension doesn’t work when opera battery saver mode on.
          @anet_qa:disqus giving you my hw specs in case that helps: laptop i7 2720QM(iGPU disabled), radeon mobile hd 5730, windows 8.1 64bits

  • RussianNeuroMancer

    Please fix touchscreen support on Linux – text selection works only for one word, context menu with “search” and “copy” items doesn’t react on taps. Touchscreen seems like wasn’t tested on Linux at all.
    Please enable hardware video decoding on Linux, which is available in Chromium source code and works on ChromeOS platform. This just need to be enabled: https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/master/docs/linux_hw_video_decode.md Please please please plese please please fix this. You know, it’s not like we can rebuild Opera and enable this code. Only you can do this.

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    Still problems with embedded videos (in Facebook). After some seconds of playing the video part stops and/or the picture is crumpled, while the sound is going on. Then after some more seconds the picture is moving again, but picture and sound are not synchronous now. Sometimes the whole videoclip is simply stopping and not playing till the end.

    • Keiv M. Salmon

      This happens on tumblr too. here i was thinking it was a problem with my laptop.

      is it a bug from their new memory management features?

  • tarkus

    Please do something for Win 10 tablet touchscreen use! I need to use Opera – Edge & Chrome are not good enough!

    • Mikolaj Boc

      Hi, yes, we are planning a task to make Opera more usable on touch devices. The question is, what would YOU like to have implemented to help you?

      • tarkus

        For starters:
        1. Complete tile handling (creating, copying, moving, grouping, editing)
        2. Automatic keyboard activation when inserting text
        3. Proper copy/paste/paste & search popups
        4. Better scrolling (sometimes Opera freezes and has to be minimized & restored to continue)
        5. In general, better behavior when holding thumb down to activate menus or to delete/copy/select text (selecting text by ‘thumbing’ on text & dragging the cursor over it, is – when even possible – a pain in the ass)
        As I mentioned before (and it happens frequently), when holding thumb down on the touchscreen or scrolling, Opera freezes and action should be taken (most of the times minimizing & restoring solves the problem).
        To be honest, only Edge works well with a touchscreen – Google Chrome has issues too (but it is manageable)
        In any case, Opera for Android must be the beacon for every change!
        I’ll be back with new remarks!

  • yigido

    I want to ask. How do you decide your news sources for countries? For example, Opera news only shows 3-4 new website from Turkey. I can share more and trusted new sources with you. Please answer me, thanks!

    • BK

      Please share.

      • yigido

        Sir I created a report for this, please check.
        Those sites will improve the quality of contents.

        Please contact me if you need more, I will search about it to improve this service.

        • BK

          thx for detailed report. We will follow up.

          • yigido

            I will update the report soon. I will sent another mail to this report. Can you check it too?

          • yigido

            I sent an update to this report, please see.
            Thanks BK.

    • In Opera 40 you can add sources from outside the catalog if you know exact URL for RSS/Atom feed. For example: http://pinkbike.com/pinkbike_xml_feed.php for pinkbike.com site. We thought that this is way to difficult. That’s why in Opera 41 (right now still in developer channel) you can just type name of page for example: pinkbike.com and Opera will automatically check if there are RSS/Atom feeds that you can add to your personal news.

      We will look into your suggestions. In the meanwhile you can already enjoy your favourite sites in personal news using the tricks above.

  • Kaley

    Opera crashes whenever a video I played on Twitter is done playing.
    A page appears then telling me the website crashed and could no longer be displayed. This behavior also happens to me on some videos on YouTube, example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzW3eHIVqCo

  • sgrandin

    Be nice if the 2-sided printing unchecked automatically if there’s only one page.
