Opera UA with and without slash?

Opera User Agent has two variations, why?

User Agent Examples ...
Opera 7.54
Opera/7.54

Why are there two variations for all 7.X Opera browsers? I can't see consistency between OS and spoofing so I don't suspect those to be the cause.

The only thing that comes to mind are Alphas and RC releases but I have nothing remotly solid to suggest that, mere speculation.

Can anyone explain why Opera would have two UA's for the same version?

Interesting JAB_Creations,

I generally would expect to the the slash ("/") in the UA... It may be a spoof but it's hard to tell...

Anyone else seen this before?
