Opera 10.00  Change Log

  • Inline spell checker - Spelling errors are now indicated as you type via a dotted red underline in all places where you can input text: form fields, Opera Mail compose windows, Notes, Chat, etc. Only single-line text fields do not check spelling automatically.
  • Opera Presto 2.2 rendering engine - The Opera Presto rendering engine has been updated to version 2.2 further enhancing its reputation for stability and security.
  • Opera Turbo - This new Opera feature increases your internet bandwidth speed on slow connections using data and image compression technologies. Opera Turbo uses Opera proxy servers to compress the traffic before it reaches the Opera browser on the client computer.
  • Pretty-printing of unstyled XML - Opera 10 incorporates "pretty-print XML", which is now the default styling for unstyled XML and uses the unstyledxml.css style sheet in the Styles sub-directory of the Opera installation directory.
  • Skin elements - New skin elements crafted by our acclaimed Web designer Jon Hicks have been applied to the Opera 10 user interface.
  • Visual tabs - The Opera 10 Tab Bar can be used to show all open tabs as thumbnails.

Improved features

  • Acid3 test - Opera 10 scores 100/100, pixel perfect on the Acid3 compliance test.
  • Opera Dragonfly - Additions to Opera Dragonfly developer tools include HTTP header inspection, DOM editing, and automatic selection of the current tab; see this Opera reference.
  • Opera Mail: Rich Text Message Composition — HTML authoring
  • Opera Mail can now send rich text messages including inline images, styled text, links, and/or custom HTML.
  • Regular expression engine - Opera 10 has an improved and faster regular expression engine that uses a stack-based bytecode instruction set.
  • Speed Dial configuration options - You can now easily configure how many speed dials will fit comfortably on your Opera desktop. Click "Configure Speed Dial" in the lower-right corner of the Speed Dial page to open the configuration dialog box.
  • Web specifications support
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets)
  • Support for the CSS3 color:transparent value has been improved.
  • Full RGBA and HSLA opacity support is now included for an easier way to make Web page features transparent. This is accomplished by the addition of a fourth argument to HSL and RGB, namely alpha transparency and results in RGBA and HSLA values. See this Opera reference.
  • Support has been added for the CSS Selectors API. This feature makes the selection of DOM elements a lot simpler. It includes partial support for namespace resolver features which allow you to work with mixed namespace documents and select elements based on their namespace; see this Opera reference.
  • CSS files must now be served with the correct MIME type ("text/css") in Strict mode, or they will be ignored.
  • HTML 5 algorithms have been implemented for detecting charsets in HTML.
  • HTML 5 end-tag and start-tag parsing, whitespace parsing, and DOCTYPE parsing have been added.
  • HTML 5 <canvas> elements can now export images to the JPEG format.
  • HTML 5 <canvas> transforms are applied when building a path, not when painting it.
SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics)
  • FPS (Frames Per Second) support: Opera enables you to manipulate the speed (frames per second) of your SVG animations using JavaScript by supporting the SVGElement.currentFps and SVGElement.targetFps properties. These properties respectively read and control SVG frames per second; see this Opera reference.
  • SVG fonts in HTML support: Use SVG font files to style your text using CSS (in both HTML and SVG files); see this Opera reference.
Web fonts
  • font specification (@font-face CSS at-rules) with the font-family descriptor
  • src descriptor with local and remote
  • TrueType (TTF)
  • OpenType (OTF)
  • Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) font support
