    Why isn't it on any repos yet? The version from the opera site links qt3, a package with qt4 would be nice.

    Thanks, but your solution is not what I'm looking for.

    Then you will have to wait until it will be in the repos.

    Gee, thanks for the attitude, guys.

    You're welcome, especially as "attitude" seems to be also your problem.

    If you really want to have this version as soon as possible, then do something about it, if you want it in the repos, then contact the package maintainer, you will find him in the changelog of the package.

    //Edit:

    If you need help on how to get the first (20) lines of a changelog, here you are:

    Code:
    rpm -q --changelog opera|head -n 20

    Seeing as this is a security update, I don't think it's unreasonable for me to have expected an official opensuse release. Nor was it unreasonable to pose a simple question. I will contact the package maintainer and offer my help.

    Maybe, but you were given a simple workaround on your simple question and commented with "That's not what I am looking for."

    I did a quick search and found only a short desription of (two) advisories considering those security related fixes. It was not clear if those problems are platform independent or only bound to another (in most cases much more abundant) platform.

    If you want to find out, if *NIX-systems are also affected by these problems, you will have to do some research on your own.

    Even for Firefox (which in contrast to opera is OSS) updates were not published in the past, if the security problems were "Windows only".
