Opera 11 final version published
Opera Software Thursday released the completed version of the Opera 11 browser, which has been available in various states of pre-release since October. This version of the browser breaks new ground for Opera, and includes support for extensions and introduces a new tab management system.
If you have been using the beta version of Opera 11, which was last updated on November 23, there isn't going to be a tremendous amount of change that is immediately visible aside from a few changes to the search dropdown, speed dial background, and extension installer UI, but a handful of usability improvements have been made.
Under the hood, however, support for more HTML5 content has been added, including support for the progress and meter elements, and the form input types: "search," "file" multiple, null placeholder, "color", and "tel." The complete log of changes between Opera 11 beta and the final release candidate is available here.
If you've downloaded any of the Opera 11 release candidates pushed out in rapid succession over the last two days, this is the final version, but it has the same release number as RC3, which is 1156.
