A new flavor of Opera Mobile is now available for download for the owners of handsets based on Symbian, following the release of Opera Mobile 11.1 only a few weeks ago.
The new release of the application is only a minor software update, and was pushed out from Opera's labs as Opera Mobile 11.1 silent update 1.
The new release comes with a series of fixes included into the mix, aimed at resolving various issues that the browser was delivered with.
The development team behind the browser
notes that the new crash report system they put in place for the mobile browser offered them the possibility to discover a few sources of random crashes.
These have been resolved in the new release:
- Added fullscreen native keyboard when writing Arabic or Hebrew on Symbian^3 devices
- Added Opera Mobile Store icon to Speed Dial
- Fixed CSS3 gradient support
- General bug fixes and stability improvements.
Users who will download and install the new application flavor will be able to provide feedback on the issues they find through the 'Report a problem' tool in Help.
The development team encourages them to do so, as they are planning more enhancements for the Opera Mobile browser. Users can also join the Opera Mobile for Symbian forum for discussions.
