Opera just rushed out yet another development build for the upcoming version 12 of the browser. This one touches mostly on performance, the built-in e-mail client and HTML5 drag and drop.
According to the developer, the current snapshot shows significant performance improvements as far as software rendering is concerned, on Intel CPUs with Supplemental Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSSE3) available. In order to make things clearer the development team created a graph that captures the performance difference between the last two snapshots.
The list of repairs in the mail client is extensive and covers issues such as browser crash when checking for messages through POP, MAPI not responding, message printing problems or losing message copies when synchronizing un-subscription from a Gmail folder.
As far as HTML5 drag and drop is concerned, the repairs addressed several crashes that occurred on dragging tabs, buttons, text or sessions.
