Opera code names uncovered

Filed under
Software

We've had some requests lately about where Opera 9.x is heading, so I'll give you a sneak peak into the current projects and their internal code names. We usually prefer code names over version numbers until the product actually ships.

Merlin

Merlin is the current code base, used for 9.0, 9.1 and the coming 9.2. On Merlin the main focus is on stability and only select new features are added.

Peregrine

The most important planned update to Opera on desktop. Peregrine will contain significant improvements in the user interface, improved standards support, improved performance, thousands of bug fixes and groundbreaking new functionality. In other words: We're pretty excited about it.

Kestrel

GNOME and KDE

  • Community Time at Collabora [Ed: Mono]
  • Refocus
    Sometimes all those GNOME programming projects are driving me crazy. [...] Note that for that last item, I would use LaTeXila of course, so if there are some regressions due to some library changes (you perfectly know which library in particular I mean), I’ll probably become aware of the regressions and fix them. Without any guarantees, I repeat. So if someone wants to take over LaTeXila maintenance, I would be more than happy. In the condition that I can still recognize my old pet project afterwards and is still mostly bug-free.
  • Chakra GNU/Linux Users Get KDE Plasma 5.5.4 and Calligra 2.9.11 Office Suite
    Users of the Chakra GNU/Linux operating system were informed this past weekend by the project's maintainer Neofytos Kolokotronis of the availability of two essential software distributions for the rolling OS.
  • Konqi emoji shipped! and a little preview…
