Opera have today released a snapshot version of 12.02, which contains a stability fix for the Windows 32 bit version. Basically, what they've done is taken it back to running just one process - opere.exe, and temporarily removed out of process plug-ins.

Just to be clear, this is not a final release but it will install over your stable version of 12.01 if you have it. It's a snapshot, and is only for Windows 32 bit machines.

If you're interested it's best to read about it here - and notice the warning;

If you use Opera and you've been experiencing problems with the latest version, video playback issues or freezing on some pages, then this might be of use you.

I've installed it and can notice the difference, this snapshot runs much better for me - XP and Win 7 32 bit. They've acknowledged that opera_plugin_wrapper was causing issues for some users and have done this while they sort out the problems.

It's not a final version, but I just thought to post this here in case it may be of interest to anyone who uses Opera.

I hope they could give an option in the settings page, to choose between out-of-process plugins or otherwise. Personally am not a fan of it, as it makes Opera feel heavier, though they are useful for crash protection, I havn't had any crashes in Opera in the first place.

Yes, it would be good to have the option to choose if you wanted to use out of process plug-ins or not. Maybe they'll consider that. At least they're doing something about it and, with this snapshot release, Opera is running much better for me. I never had crashes in the first place either, so all the plugin_wrapper did was mess things up a bit - the browser wasn't the same when it was running in 12 and 12.01, I think it was a mistake on their part to release it as a final. But they seem to have acknowledged that now. See what happens next.

Opera 12.02 is released;

Use the links for changelogs.

From the page; "Windows only - The Windows 32-bit version has been reverted to in-process plugins while stability issues stemming from the out-of-process plugin system are investigated and resolved"
