[quote]7.21 will address some issues in 7.20, such as file type handling and stability issues experienced by some users[/quote]

Opera may want to start slowing down on the upgrades. Doesn't look too professional and hard to explain to novices why there is an upgrade every month.

Security:
- Updated to latest version of OpenSSL

Opera takes security seriously, that's why.

I'll tell you what though... Opera 6.0 and early releases of 7.0 used to coredump right and left on my FreeBSD machine. It got so bad that I went back to firebird for a bit there.

Since 7.20 B13, it's been rock solid. I put on 7.21 preview 2 today (latest for FreeBSD), and it seems rock solid as well. Load time is also dramatically reduced.

Keep the updates coming if they keep fixing bugs!

She's much quicker on FreeBSD. Updated my portinstall a few mintues ago and already seeing a huge improvement, even over P2.

Let's see if she's just as stable now.

Crikey they are moving up an RC # for every build #!
That's a little confident, unless they don't mind getting up to double digit RC #'s

It now recognises hover colours on paragraphs and forms again, but there aren't any more CSS2 improvements I can see.

The padding/background-image/borders bug is still there! This page illustrates the problem:
