Opera 8.53 likely to be released soon

March 2, 2006

It appears that Opera will release an update to its desktop browser (Windows platform) within the next few days.

The update, Opera 8.53, is likely a result of an urgent security vulnerability. Just a couple weeks ago Opera released version 8.52.

Security vendor Secunia doesn’t list any unpatched security holes for the Opera browser on its site at this time. Opera usually coordinates its browser updates with Secunia, so that Secunia doesn’t release any information about security vulnerabilities in the browser before a patch is made available.

Update (3/3/2006): Opera 8.53 will only be available in following languages: Chinese (simplified), Chinese (traditional), Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian (bokmål), Norwegian (nynorsk), Portuguese, Russian, Swedish.

Opera 8.52 in the above languages was originally released with an insecure version of Macromedia Flash.

    Good!
    But just wondering… is Sequina has some specific timeframe within that it allows companies fix security issues before publishing them on their web site?

    There are no en, de, pl at 8.53 directory, which you can see only at INFO’s listings.

    No 8.53 for en, de, pl? Then just rename version of revised 8.52, I guess. Because there were not replacements of 8.52 at the end of last month for those three languages. The other languages 8.52 were replaced this week, with updated flash-plugins.

    This is why Opera 9 needs Auto Updates like Firefox and IE

    “This is why Opera 9 needs Auto Updates like Firefox and IE ”
    Opera already checks for a new version once a week.

    incremental updates are stupid. what about users running linux who don’t have permissions to install software? and why software would want to install software when it it what pkg manager should do

    Incremental updates like Firefox and Micro Torrent (“U”Torrent) are amazing. Even the most stupid person can use it. Point. Linux users without privileges are a minority.

    Hey Thanks,

    Think Opera 10 will have Auto Updater.

    The good thing about Auto Updates in Firefox is you can disable them from downloading and even checking for updates.
