I'm downloading it [opera.com] now.

It's a security release:

Changes Since Opera 9.24 [opera.com]
Security
  • Fixed an issue where plug-ins could be used to allow cross domain scripting, as reported by David Bloom. Details will be disclosed at a later date.
  • Fixed an issue with TLS certificates that could be used to execute arbitrary code, as reported by Alexander Klink (Cynops GmbH). Details will be disclosed at a later date.
  • Rich text editing can no longer be used to allow cross domain scripting, as reported by David Bloom. See our advisory.
  • Prevented bitmaps from revealing random data from memory, as reported by Gynvael Coldwind. Details will be disclosed at a later date.
    Miscellaneous
  • Fixed a problem where malformed BMP files could cause Opera to temporarily freeze.

    Thanks for the heads-up Bill, from the description of the bugs involved, it looks like Opera is getting some more serious testing for security holes, just like Firefox over the last year.
