New 10.70 snapshot with more Presto updates

We have another Presto (Core) update for you. This update should improve performance in some cases, and it fixes a few crashes and freezes, some memory issues, and we have also removed the -o- prefix for CSS3 text-overflow. Widgets should be working again as well. There are some more quite important fixes in there, so take a look at the changelog for more details.

Let us know about any regression you may find compared to the previous 10.70 snapshot.

WARNING: This is a development snapshot of Opera. It is released for testing purposes, and there may be serious bugs and unfinished features.

Mouse gestures tab cycling seems to be working differently now . GestureLeft takes you to LastUsedTab instead of PreviousTab and ofcourse the reverse for GestureRight

Pitiphong Phongpattranont 9. August 2010, 09:23

My little serious regression
If I set "When cycling through tabs with Control+Tab" in Preference->Advanced->Tabs
And then I hold right click and scroll with the mouse scroll wheel
It should be cycling with the tabs order not recently used order

Does anyone notice the oddity with mouse gestures?

Zotlan 9. August 2010, 09:37

Very odd, tab cycling seems to have become messed up and now follows, i think, the preference of closing tabs. This only affects the ctrl+tab and ctrl+shift+tab shortcuts, not the single key shortcuts 1 and 2, those still behave properly. Is anyone else seeing this or am i the only one?

ah, seems related to the shortcut problem i mentioned above then. Definitely something wrong there, will write up a bug report.

EDIT: reported as DSK-309592

Luca Viozzi 9. August 2010, 09:45

dunno if it's a bug but i try to describe it anyway.
i've opera 10.60 and 10.70 (this snapshots) installed.
On windows seven 64bit before this snapshot i was able to open a new private tab directly from the icon on the taskbar of the 10.70 snapshot, now with this latest one i get an error that says that another user is running opera. Opening it from the menu get no problems at all.

Sry for my english :P


EDIT: ok was the fantastic windows seven that needed opera to restart after the first installation to know if the program was installed correctly -_-' Sry.

Does anyone notice some html codepage problems lately?

heckenmann 9. August 2010, 09:56

Hi,

I think there is a problem with font rendering under Ubuntu / LinuxMint with self-installed Tahoma-font. Below a screenshot made on facebook.de with Opera and Chromium on the same OS.

Change "Alternative Page Cycle Mode" in opera:config to 1 , default 0

this fixes tab cycling for me

Tomorrow maybe there will be a new snapshot which will fix this BUG!!

Charlie Clark 9. August 2010, 10:15

Yippee!

A couple of notes - looks like this build is back to using the default profile. Could this information be included somewhere.

CORE-30372 (Broken PKCS #12 certificate import)

Not quite - it is now asking for a password at least but failing. My certificate is verifiable with openssl. But I do have one that only Thunderbird can read. I have tested the reexported version of this with Opera, Thunderbird and Keychain. Both Thunderbird and Keychain can work with the reexported certificate.

Bug with Offline-Mode since a few Versions !!!
-----------------------------------------------

Turning on the offline-mode has no effekt anymore.

E.g.: I use Opera very much, and have opened plenty (arround 130+) of webpages/tabs all the time.
Because Opera tries to (re-)load all these pages when I open Opera, I turn on the offline-mode, to stop loading all these Pages.

Since a few Beta-Releases the Offline-mode has no effect anymore. If I turn it on, Opera still loads the pages and still updates pages if I tell Opera to do so, without asking me to turn back to online-mode.
Further Opera turns itself back to online-mode - because the hook for Offline-mode disappears by itself.

BS-Harou 9. August 2010, 10:41

What exactly should I imagine under: "CORE-24184 (Persistent Storage implementation for User JavaScript)" ?

Are you on Windows XP? Lots of XP users have this, me as well. I already filed a bug report.

I think this is the regression with offline cache that causes the dragonfly to crash opera too :((
