Thanks to Daniel Goldman for the early news:

Since the release of Opera 9 a little over a year ago, Opera has continued development on the rendering engine that will be included in Opera 9.5. The new rendering engine includes improved CSS3 support, superior SVG support, and a brand new JavaScript engine (with support for ECMAScript 4 ‘getters’ and ’setters’)...

The Opera Desktop Team is planning on releasing a build of the new Opera 9.5 browser within the next few weeks.

Other than the speed and compatibility I don't see many major feature changes listed. It looks like a good update, but nothing too major. I'll certainly update my systems but what's here that will get more Opera users to jump on-board?

That's probably where Daniel gets cagey in his article. He says: "And… there will be some new features and updates. One of the new features has been censored from the screenshot below. Any guesses?"
