    Default When will Opera 11.62 package be available?

    Opera has updated to 11.62. The Opera site recommends using the package from one's distro. When will openSUSE 12.1 get the Opera 11.62 package?

    We, your fellow users, can not answer that.

    When security is involved, I guess you can have it in the Update repo rather soon.
    And when there is no real need like security, there will be no official update at all for 12.1, but it (or even a newer level, depends on what is available at the last tests)), will most probably be part of the final 12.2.

    Where do you read that, it just shows me the download button for linux,
    clicking that I can select openSUSE and it downloads the rpm.

    as i understand this, they recommend using your distro's repositories to
    download, but provide rpm/deb packages nevertheless.


    sometimes i am using opera from our OSS repos, sometimes downloaded rpms
    from their website, and so far i didn't notice any difference whatsoever.
    if there's any distro-specific modifications being applied, it's nothing
    that's obvious to me.

    btw., i downloaded & installed this latest 11.62 version, and it works
    fine. i didn't notice any of the bugs that have been fixed with this
    release, so i don't notice any improvement either.

    That was my question: Where do they recommend that? Browsing to
    opera.com I can nowhere see such an information to use packages from the
    distro (and have never seen in the past).

    well, i don't see it now, either. i did see it on the notification that
    popped up when opera noticed that a newer version was available.

    but it's up to the distros to educate their users to use distro-specific
    packages IMO, not up to software vendors like opera.

    I disagree here because it is nonfree proprietary software.

    So it is not up to the linux distros to take any care at all.

    neither is it up to opera, or any other proprietary software vendor.

    i mean it's up to distros like openSUSE to tell their users to use
    packages that have been adapted to the distro, from the distro's repos.
    who else's business would that be?

    Thanks, Henk.

    I went ahead and downloaded the rpm from Opera's site.
