Default Opera 54

Opera 54 introduces news articles on Speed Dial and a simplified browser restoration page;

https://blogs.opera.com/desktop/2018...toration-page/

If you get the news feed on the speed dial page after the update, and don't want it, it can all be turned off via the speed dial easy set-up menu or in settings. I have it turned off anyway, and it didn't re-enable after the update.

No link to the blog though - it's been unavailable since this afternoon.

This is the changelog for the latest Opera Stable - 54.0.2952.54.

Privacy Policy statement is visible at Opera Installer.
Trigger post-migration right after migration.
Create dry-run for speeddials post-migration (clean-up).
[Lin] Double mouse backward/forward navigation.
Add omitted speeddial post-migration clean-up on partner content initialization finished.


It's on Filehippo, so thought to post it here.

The Opera desktop blog is still unavailable, no idea why but the information on the page reads;

"We will be back shortly. We're temporarily unavailable"

Searching for changelogs on the Opera site leads to the same message. The blog being down for two days seems odd to me, maybe they're just giving it a revamp or whatever - or maybe it's been hacked

That's strange.
According to this the blog was discontinued more than 4 years ago.

The story in the link you posted refers to the old Opera Blogs platform, EldonW. They used to provide free blog space for users to write about all manner of things - like Blogspot, Wordpress etc.

The blog I'm referring to is the official Opera Desktop Team blog. On it, they announce the latest updates for the stable, beta and developer versions of Opera. There's a comments section where users can provide feedback, bugs, things not working properly etc, and generally air their thoughts on the latest versions. It also provides download links and links to changelogs.

I always post a link to it so people can read about the latest changes etc. But as of July 11th there has been nothing on the page, still nothing today - here;

https://www.opera.com/blogs/desktop/

Everything else on the Opera site seems to be available so no idea why that particular page has gone pretty much blank. Just seems odd.

Browsers need a new way for their nomenclature of version numbers.

Opera 100 in the near future? Wow!

Maybe they're all in a race to be the first to get to 100?

Anyway, the blog is back up and running now.
