A First Glimpse At Opera 11.10, Barracuda
This build is the first step towards the 11.10 release
Opera's Desktop Team announced that the first snapshot of Opera 11.10, codename “Barracuda,” has finally arrived! In this build, Core has been upgraded from version 2.7.62 to 2.8.99, which is a pretty big step forward. With this Core upgrade comes the implementation of the Web Open Font Format (WOFF).

In addition, a batch of changes to network compatibility has been implemented. The purpose of these changes is to modify our network behaviour so that we are more compatible with other web browsers.
- Disable Cookie2 by default, with an option to enable it again
- Send more compatible Accept header on second request
- Disable TLS 1.1 and 1.2 by default
- Make sure redirects from http to https are labeled secure
- Remove the use of master password for client certificates
- Added a preference to disable cross-network protection
- No HTML5 media playback on Mac
- Acid3 reference rendering is broken
- Mouse panning broken on Windows
- Tabs opened by extensions open to the left instead of the right
Apart from that, frequent crashes for Mac users on Facebook, Live Mail/Hotmail, and Google Docs are finally resolved. This build is the first step towards the 11.10 release, but there's more stuff to come.
