12.15 Final released

Easter is over, and we are back at work here in Oslo. The sun is shining and what better way to celebrate that spring is approaching than by releasing a new Opera version.

Today we have released Opera 12.15, a recommended stability and security update for all users.
We would like to thank all of you who have helped us to test and report issues.

You can get your favourite browser on opera.com. Changelogs are available here.

Thanks for the Update.
The Changelog says: "Release date: 2013-03-21" - is this correct? If so then this Release seems to be identical to RC2, because that was announced on 2013-03-22 in this blog.

Christophchristoph142 Thursday, April 4, 2013 8:22:45 AM

Where did you guys move the x64-version? I can't find it in Windows' download section anymore confused

Updated to todays date. The RC is not 100% identical to this one, We updated some localization content and updated one of the fixes in the changelog a bit

Great work! Thank you for the update!

tvd88 Thursday, April 4, 2013 8:35:33 AM

hope you can keep both Presto and Webkit in one as Avant Browser

senseysensor Thursday, April 4, 2013 8:37:28 AM

Big thanks!

King Crimson Thursday, April 4, 2013 9:02:57 AM

Ok, what about next webkit version?

Will it be very different from Opera 12?

I do hope for no...

Тониantoneni4 Thursday, April 4, 2013 9:07:21 AM

шикарно! долго ждал. спасибо)
будем тестировать.
Интересно, следующая версия будет уже на WEbkit?

I didn't really like how 12.15 RC2 performed on my laptop. Lots of new, unexpected crashes in places 12.14 was rock solid. I had very few crashed with 12.14 actually.

Also, there were some bugs with the UI in fullscreen. Let's see if something is changed now (on my desktop PC).

alekksander Thursday, April 4, 2013 9:15:55 AM

no new issues here. thanks... nice to see that 12.XX is still remembered

Christophchristoph142 Thursday, April 4, 2013 9:16:30 AM

I'm still getting the logdoc-error down

x64 final @ Win8

CryioAcryion Thursday, April 4, 2013 9:19:19 AM

During the course of 5 months, you guys just hotfixed Opera, while other browsers increased their performance, stability and improved memory usage tenfold.

With 12.13, you managed to destroy a lot of your userbase.

It's nice knowing that Opera will now go with Google's Blink, but why do we have to get or informations from other sites? Why can't you guys tell us first?

And anyway, we expect on some update about the webkit or blink or whatever new engine soon. We'd like to see at least some lab prototypes.

Go download from http://www.opera.com/download/
(instead of http://www.opera.com/browser/download/ linked in the article)
and you will have more options.

Opera — Thank you for the browser

Browser:
I made Speed Dial, in fact I'm a bit of a lord
If ‘u tell a subject, I've probably did it before
Look, I have a talent, a wonderful thing
'cause everyone follows when I’m inventing
I'm so grateful and proud
All I want is to sing it out loud


User:
So I say
Thank you for the browser, features I'm using
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can dive without it, I ask in all honesty
What would net be?
Without Presto Engine where are we?
So I say thank you for the browser
For giving it to me


Browser:
Older days, I was a runner, others only could walk
Now they’ve I began to bring long before, I could rock!


User:
And I've often wondered, how did it all start?
Who found out that nothing can capture a heart
Like an Opera can?
Well, whoever it was, I'm a fan

So I say
Thank you for the browser, features I'm using
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can dive without it, I ask in all honesty
What would net be?
Without good Page Zooming where are we?
So I say thank you for the browser
For giving it to me

I've been so lucky, I am the user with golden net
I wanna sing it out to everybody
What a joy, what a pride, what a chance!

So I say
Thank you for the browser, features I'm using
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can dive without it, I ask in all honesty
What would net be?
Without decent Text Selection where are we?
So I say thank you for the browser
For giving it to me


Based on ABBA — Thank you for the music

Webkit is passe. Today, "Brave New World" with Blink. LOL.

Opera ASA = part of Google company.

halbgottin Thursday, April 4, 2013 9:33:15 AM

Your "search bar hijacking protection" has hijacked my search bar. It's Google by default at every Opera startup, always, and impossible to change. Pretty sad to see this bug go straight from RC right into "final". If I wanted a forced Google experience I'd be using Chrome. Please fix this.

Thanks for the hint. I didn't know about that. I got the final from http://get-tsw-1.opera.com/pub/opera/win/

But I actually intended to ask why they completely removed the x64-version for the ordinary user...

CryioAcryion Thursday, April 4, 2013 9:37:41 AM

Posting this from Firefox. I already got a ton of NSL (much, much worse than anything 12.14 did) and in fact, I can't even load this very blog on 12.15.

Opera x86, Windows 8 x64.

Installed on top of a clean 12.14.

I still see no reason to upgrade from 11.64 — none of the issues that matter to me were addressed.

Did you get any certifice error? One of two each website I visited wants me approve website certificate?

sipertruk Thursday, April 4, 2013 10:51:48 AM

Opera 32 bits windows 7 x64
The search engine problem is not corrected, it replaces every time my default search engine by google.
Even if i set google by default it adds one more google engine.
I tried replacing the google engine in every search.ini i found no luck.
Overwriting with a former search.ini well it's no use as it doesn't even modify the previous file, it just adds google as default when it's launched.
I am used to have a search box "Search in my page" on my bar, now it puts the google engine in that too.

I can't upgrade to 12.15 in that state.

Marek Wójcikmarekwojcik Thursday, April 4, 2013 10:54:59 AM

From very long time Opera freezes very often. (Win7 32/64). It is really f**king annoying.

How should this happen? As far as I know the Presto-Department will be disbanded. Some of the developers already have their termination... rolleyes

Also read: 300 million users and move to WebKit

residentguru Thursday, April 4, 2013 12:42:21 PM

Have gone back to the previous RC, as the 12.15 Final [sic] has all manner of problems which were not there, or not as bad with the RC2. Crashes going into, or leaving Facebook, freezes during long downloads, problems with full stops - "Opera has stopped working - would you care to find out why? [or similar]

More regressive behavior. This is on a system of Windows 7 Ultimate x64, nVidia 550 Ti 1G, AMD PhenomII 965, 16 GB memory - solid on everything but Opera.

CryioAcryion Thursday, April 4, 2013 12:52:54 PM

It really amazes me how with only a handfull of fixes they manage to introduce a ton of regressions.

CryioAcryion Thursday, April 4, 2013 1:02:18 PM

Wait. WHAT? I just now noticed.

Easter is OVER?

Easter starts on 5 May, lol. We're in April.

s/ashslash4real Thursday, April 4, 2013 1:08:26 PM

Umm, why don't you give the opportunity to regular users to chose whether to download the x86 or the x64 version of Opera? confused

Bug in opera:about for the Plug-in path (OS X confirmed) line as for some reason it is split to to lines instead of being on one line

+1, finding x64 version is now a bit tricky. Looks like you need to have the exact link address.

Hi there,
I can't find nowhere in the Downloads link to the 64-bit version of Opera 12.15 for OS X, while for version 12.14 it was readily available along with its 32-bit counterpart. What is wrong with that build? Any estimations on its availability?

Update
Just found it here, thanks to the earlier commenters:

Although I've already found direct link, thanks anyway. Unfortunately, this link seem to be private. Only one who knows it can access it.

Unrealmirakulix Thursday, April 4, 2013 2:17:43 PM

there should be an additional button for the x64 build or for custom build. Something like that:

pedro saraivapedrosaraqiva Thursday, April 4, 2013 2:24:11 PM

I dont i have any idea of what you are doing with this most recent opera versions! Is getting worse each update! Now even facebook is slow when scrolling! even with my cpu running at 4.5ghz

Why dont keep developing Presto engine? You said that if Webkit is good ,you can make it better... (or something similar) well , i cant see any improvements since first release of Opera Beta for android.
Resource heavy like chrome, websites not loading properly, obsolete zooming, lags even it my XPeria ARc S running at 1.8 ghz! etc etc etc. And Opera Mobile just works!.

And im even not talking about security.... For example, In anti-phishing tests, Opera Browser detected 94.2% of pishing websites, Followed by IE with 82% and then by chrome(web-kit based browser) with just 72.4 % , and that's Huge difference .

Have a nice day.


(sorry for my english)

or the browser Maxthon (IE and Webkіt)

AzraelAzrael1 Thursday, April 4, 2013 2:53:24 PM

WTF?? How did you managed to make it even slower to start? It now takes a full minute until it becomes usable - all the bookmarks are loaded. This is getting ridiculous - 11.64 takes only 10 seconds on a cold start, a parallel install running with the exact same settings.

MarcMarcLister Thursday, April 4, 2013 2:55:52 PM

Since I installed 12.15 I can't access my Fastmail account. I can log in to Fastmail but the emails don't appear. I just get the Loading page.

I've removed 12.15 and tried 12.14 but that doesn't help. Fastmail is accessible on Firefox, Chrome and IE (latest versions of all 3) so I know the issue appears to be with Opera.

Fastmail was accessible earlier today but since the upgrade to 12.15 it's been inaccessible. I don't get why reverting to 12.14 doesn't fix things though.

hectormaciasa79 Thursday, April 4, 2013 3:30:10 PM

Why did you hide x64 build, are you pretending to force to install 32 bit and then break my mind moving whole profile manually, are you insane?
