Opera 12 aka Wahoo Alpha Build 1116 Released

Opera team has started working on their next project, Opera 12 aka Wahoo and they had released first snapshot version of it.

This builds has a couple of very important fixes though, first among them is plugging a big memory leak on Windows.

Changelog :-

  • Code cleanup and optimizations
  • Plugged a huge memory leak on Windows, and a smaller one on Mac
  • Several updates to blocklists. Note that many changes are continuously pushed through autoupdate, so you probably have these changes already
  • Blocking use of hardware acceleration on NVIDIA Quadro NVS (bad performance)
  • Blocking use of hardware acceleration on NVIDIA FX/PCX series (buggy driver version detection prevented blocking of the too old driver)
  • Blocking use of 3D hardware acceleration (WebGL) on Intel GMA 3000 (bad performance)
  • Added fallback rule for unknown chipsets on Windows as well, should block things like VMWare
  • Fixed ex value parsing on Mac, fixes many odd errors where things go missing on websites like reddit
  • Made "Minimal restart" in crashlog UI work again
  • Improved flash rendering on Mac
  • Fixed crash when closing tabs with "dimmed" dialogs

WARNING: This is a development snapshot: It contains the latest changes, but may also have severe known issues, including crashes, and data loss situations. In fact, it may not work at all.
