Opera has now released version 9.26 for most operating systems. It includes various fixes for both stability and security. Looks like they're offering stable upgrades every month or two.

Thanks for the heads-up tedster.

Here's the changelog:

Changes Since Opera 9.25 [opera.com]
Security
  • Fixed an issue where simulated text inputs could trick users into uploading arbitrary files, as reported by Mozilla. See our advisory.
  • Image properties can no longer be used to execute scripts, as reported by Max Leonov. See our advisory.
  • Fixed an issue where the representation of DOM attribute values could allow cross site scripting, as reported by Arnaud.lb. See our advisory.
    Miscellaneous
  • Fixed a stability issue found in Opera 9.0 to 9.25, when Opera connects securely to Windows Server 2008 or other servers supporting the TLS Certificate Status extension.
  • Additional stability fixes.

    Makes me wonder whether 9.5 will ever become final. The beta has been available since October 2007...
