Opera 11.10 build 2005 snapshot out
We are proud to announce that the first snapshot of Opera 11.10, codename “Barracuda,” has finally arrived! Everyone here has worked hard to get this new shiny build out to you.
In this build, Core has been upgraded from version 2.7.62 to 2.8.99, which is a pretty big step forward. With this Core upgrade comes the implementation of the Web Open Font Format (WOFF).
In addition, a batch of changes to network compatibility has been implemented. The purpose of these changes is to modify our network behaviour so that we are more compatible with other web browsers.
These changes include:
Apart from that, frequent crashes for Mac users on Facebook, Live Mail/Hotmail, and Google Docs are finally resolved.
This build is the first step towards the 11.10 release, but there's more stuff to come, so stay tuned!

The raw changelog was actually several times larger than the one that was published for the snapshot. This is fairly common when we produce public changelogs, because not everything is fit for public consumption. There may be things like internal architecture changes and preparations for things that are in the pipeline that can't be made public (yet). We also had to do things like merge lots of crash fixes into a single changelog item, just to keep the changelog down to a more manageable size.
So while the changelog you are seeing seems large (and I doubt that most people will even read most of it), it was even bigger before it was prepared for the public snapshot.
When it comes to new functionality, we have yet to announce what we will be adding to Barracuda. The initial announcement did contain a small hint, but as I mentioned, the first Barracuda snapshot is focused mostly on bug fixes. You can expect more of them in future builds.
New versions do need to strike a balance between new functionality and bug fixes, as it's important to stay competitive in the cutthroat browser market. We can't work exclusively on new functionality at the expense of fixing bugs, or vice versa. We need to do both.
I've been using using several extensions since it came out & they seem much more stable now.
A couple of extensions are broken including my favorite Slim Scrollbar, hope its only temporary.
