Oct 14th.:
[opera.com...]

introducing an "Undo" functionality. If users now close a window by mistake, it's easy to recall by referring to the "Closed" window history list now added to the menu or using a keyboard shortcut, Ctrl+Alt+Z. Kiosk mode is reintroduced with Opera 7.21, as was previously implemented in Opera 6. Kiosk mode is a customizable browser setting to limit functionality, blocking menus, preventing downloads, or adjusting other system preferences.

Is there any difference with the recall closed window in 7.20?

This is mostly a stability-fix. 7.20 had some issues, but 7.21 is very stable (for me at least).

Since it also contains a security-fix (latest version of OpenSSL) it's a recommended upgrade.

Has been pretty stable for me also, and a couple rendering bugs introduced in 7.11 seem to be squashed.

Which ones did you run into? That was the version I was using up until today. Just curious.

For example, [webmasterworld.com...]

I was thinking there was another one having to do with floats too, but I can't find the info on it ATM.

Does anyone else get extra carriage returns occasionally entered in textareas? (any version question)

I find that often webmail(horde) messages end up double or triple-spaced after a few replies...

Anyone having stability issues on FreeBSD with Opera? 6.0 was terrible. It was so bad that I went to using Opera 7 for Linux with the Linux ABI compatibility layer.

Then came the Opera 7.21 FreeBSD native release canidates. Rock solid. Took everything I threw at it. 7.21 RC2 was fast as heck, too. 7.21 RC3 slowed things down a bit, but it was still rock solid.

Now, 7.21 final is out and very quick, but it's coredumping again. Not as much as 6 did, but it's still doing it. I've run hardware diagnostics, but this is happening on multiple machines.

Anyone else seeing this? It's livable at the moment (6.0 simply was not), but it's sort of annoying when you have 12 tabs open and the darn thing crashes.
