Opera Software Opera 10.60 has been released July 1 for Mac OS X and is available for download. The features highlighted on the changelogs page are: layout engine (codename 'Presto'), HTML5 with support for offline web applications, WebM, which has been available in Opera (in a special build) on the very day of the announcement at the Google I/O conference, web workers for running scripts in the background without impeding the browsing experience, and geolocation. Version 10.60 is also available for Windows and Linux/BSD.

Be careful on ubuntu/debian!

At least on deb based distros, such as ubuntu and debian, opera does some pretty nasty things. It adds the opera software repository to the system (so that all future upgrades you do will also contact opera's servers to see if they have some packages (say, libc or openssh-server) they'd like to "upgrade" on your computer). Not only that, they also add their GPG key to the system, basically saying that you trust opera software with your whole system.

It's pretty annoying to have to remove all those shenanigans from the deb file before each upgrade. ;)
