you don’t say, but i assume you are running openSUSE 11.4, correct?
if so, it was born with Opera 11.01, and the way openSUSE works is it
will reach its end of life with 11.01 still the only version in any of
the normal repos (oss, non-oss, update or packman)…
because, it is not a goal of this distro to always have the most recent
version of everything on earth in the normal repos…
not sure, but i guess there are some other distros who strive to
always have the very latest of everything–i think they call those
"rolling release!..but, not openSUSE, and never has been…
yes, sometimes newer versions are pushed though the upgrade repo but
those are mostly for ‘earth shaking’ security or horrible bugs squashed…
so, if it is your goal to always have the latest Opera, you need to
watch the Opera site…and, probably compile/install from source…or,
seek a distro which more nearly matches your bleeding edge
‘needs’…may i ask what new feature the latest Opera has that you
need, really need?
or, you might want to consider Tumbleweed, the openSUSE ‘rolling
release’…but, that takes a person willing to invest more time in
trouble resolution than i want to get involved in–good luck.
