Opera Software Opera have announced the release of Opera 10 beta. New engine, new features, but I'm more concerned about where Opera 10 fits into Opera's history, and certainly their future. Opera have never made any massive strides in marketshare and is Opera 10 really going to change any of that? Read More to find out.

Still no 64-bit Qt4 build

All this progress, and STILL no 64-bit Qt4 build. It doesn't make sense, as the i386 binary has a dynamically linked Qt4 version. I know, I should be complaining on the Desktop Team Blog (http://my.opera.com/desktopteam/blog/), but it seems that this is the one issue that Opera devs aren't discussing. Any reason why those of us with modern processors are stuck with a soon to be depreciated Qt3?

this is because they are trying to finish version 10 and get it feature complete before doing a 64 version like you are refering to. It is however something that is going ot come out, but not with the initial 10.0 release.

At one point, there was a nightly 64-bit build linked with Qt4, but that version has long since disappeared. Some speculation was that Opera devs were waiting for Qt 4.5 or the beta, but both are here now and still no 64 bit build. Which is fine, Qt3 will work for now, but it looks so out of place these days.
