opera 10.51 linux

While Opera 10.50 for Windows was released more then a week ago, Linux builds only get 'prettier'.

Today, Opera released yet a new snapshot for Windows, version 10.51, which fixes a lot of bugs, and also a new Linux build (also called 10.51 for some reason, even though 10.50 for Linux was not released) which doesn't fix anything related to rendering and so on but only looks pretty (or so they say).

Here is the Linux changelog:
  • Buttons in dialogs have the correct order for a GTK application
  • Improved GTK integration when using a dark themes
  • The default GTK fonts are now used for menus and dialogs
  • The default GTK colors are now used
  • Treeview GTK skin support
  • Panels use GTK native colors
  • Zoom button enabled on UNIX
  • Fixed an issue with the old menu appearing on top of the 'O' Menu

To download and run this new Opera snapshot in Linux, copy & paste the following commands in a terminal:

wget http://snapshot.opera.com/unix/snapshot-6248/opera-10.51-6248.i386.linux.tar.bz2 -O - | tar xjf -
