Security updates force Opera to release version 8.02

July 28, 2005

Opera released an update to its Opera 8 browser, version 8.02.

In this new version Opera fixed multiple security holes as well some minor browser improvements including better support for AJAX.

These security vulnerabilities were discovered by Secunia Research and were made public today — the same time an update was made available by Opera.

This version doesn’t contain BitTorrent support; Opera felt it needs more testing before it adds BitTorrent support to a stable release of Opera. A few weeks ago Opera released a Technical Preview version of the Opera browser that contains BitTorrent support.

    “Opera felt it needs more testing before it adds BitTorrent support to a stable release of Opera.”

    How do you know that it’s the testing that’s the problem?

    “That’s what Opera said.”

    When and where did Opera say that, exactly?

    I heard it on Opera’s IRC channel.
