Opera 9.51 Released

We released 9.51 today, which addresses a few security and lots of stability issues. This release is a recommended upgrade for all those running the latest stable releases.

Changes since Opera 9.5
User Interface

Fine-tuned the new Opera skin.
Improved drag/drop of tabs.
Fixed problems with search engines when upgrading from Opera 9.2x.
Fixed a stability issue when printing or when in print preview.
Added an option to toggle mouse flips in opera:config (User Prefs - Enable Mouse Flips).
Textarea inputs now clear when no-cache is set.
Saving of images is no longer recorded in transfers.

Security

Fixed an issue where functions could reveal data from random places in memory, as reported by Philip Taylor. See our advisory.
Security status is now correctly set when navigating from HTTP to HTTPS.
Corrected an issue related to OCSP and CRLs that would lower security.
Note: This will take effect with the weekly update, or when checking manually for an update (Help > Check for Updates).
