Windows 7: Opera 11.50 beta released

Opera 11.50 beta released

A couple of new things
Speed dial extensions
Quote:
Speed Dial extensions transform your Speed Dial from a picture into live action! What does that mean? Instead of a static link to a weather web site, a Speed Dial extension can display the forecast for your specific location. In fact, we built that extension.
Speed Dial extensions are easy to make. All you need is a little tiny bit of web development skills.
Password synchronization
Quote:
Opera 11.50 beta has synchronization of passwords - made securely through Opera Link so you can log on to your password protected sites from anywhere. Opera Link also synchronizes bookmarks, your Speed Dial, custom search engine preferences, notes (yes, you can take notes in the Opera browser), typed browser history and more.
The Windows panel now lets you stack tabs the same as the tab bar.

I am using this new beta and I really like it. It seems very quick but I have one question. They have a Web GL version that enables GPU acceleration but it rates much slower than this beta on Peacekeeper and seems slower in real life. I thought 11.50 was supposed to have GPU acceleration. Is this now being delayed?

Yes it won't be in the 11.50 final release but is expected in the snapshots post 11.50 & before Opera 12.
There should be GPU acceleration for Windows XP, Vista, Linux & the Mac as well as Windows 7 heres a quote from the Opera core blog
Quote:
Our hardware acceleration is a bit different from what other browsers have implemented. Most of them do full hardware acceleration of all draw operations, but only on Windows Vista and Windows 7 - dropping to a more limited set of accelerated draw operations on other platforms. Our implementation will feature full acceleration on any OS with sufficient hardware support. This means we can also use fully hardware accelerated draw operations on Windows XP, Linux, Mac OS X and OpenGL ES 2 capable devices such as recent smart-phones and web-enabled TVs.

OpenGL

This build only has an OpenGL backend. That means your system must have an OpenGL 2.x compatible graphics card and related drivers for hardware acceleration and WebGL to work. In future builds we will also add a Direct3D backend, which will reduce the requirements on drivers and should work out of the box on most modern systems.

Came across a weird bug in Opera 11.50 if you zoom an image it only zooms to fill the screen & then actually gets smaller, found out by accident that as soon as the image starts to shrink tap enter & you will be able to zoom it to the normal
1,000% limit.

I will have to try that and see if I have the same problem.

I am noticing that if I leave Opera 11.50 open for a very long time (hours) then shut it down, it won't restart. It says it has not shut down the last occurrence yet no matter how long I wait. This has happened twice to me and I have to reboot to fix it. Only on version 1035 so hopefully this will go away.

Maybe its to do with Opera Link I only enable it to do the synch then I turn it off.
I had a similar problem a few builds ago , you should be able to kill the Opera process in Task manager under the process tab ( right click the Desktop Tool bar >start Task Manager )

Build 1040 released! Opera 11.50 beta does seem to be getting better with each new build released. With the exception of build 1035 which gave me problems.

I really like this program and I am not having any issues at all with it. Everyone else happy with it?
