Don’t expect an Opera Next Linux build anytime soon

Filed under
Software

It is too early to tell if Opera's move to the Blink engine away from Presto is going to pay off in terms of overall users who use the web browser as their primary, or if the company has shot itself in the foot with it.

Yesterday's update brought a couple of additions to Opera Next, like proxy aware auto-updating, faster loading of Speed Dials and better sensitivity for mouse gestures.

The build has been made available for Windows and Mac only, and it appears that this is not going to change anytime soon.

Daniel Aleksandersen, the Opera employee who published news of the update on the Opera Desktop Team blog mentioned that there won't be a Linux version for the first release.

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.
