It only seems like a week since i upgraded to version 7.54u2 is this another upgrade. Thanks in advance.

No. 7.54u2 is still the latest official release. Opera 8 beta 2 is a new beta for what will be the next official version of opera, which will be released when its ready.

It is many weeks since Opera 8 beta 1 was released. Initially, it was called Opera 7.60, but they decided to change the major version number due to significant new features like Voice Control, and some streamlining of the interface.

Thanks for your reply, I am always dubious about installing Beta versions so would welcome your advice on the latest offering. Got to say I love Opera and installed it some while ago after seeing a thread of yours extelling its vitues. Have or has there been any problems with the Beta version.Mnay Thanks.

Shep. Just install it in its own directory, and have a look at it. You can run both versions simultaneously without any problems. I haven't used it much yet, as I'm too busy for beta testing, but it seems fine.

There are many people like neeraj_deshmukh in the Opera Community who are really helpful. The help and support one receives on the forum is one of the main reasons why I like Opera so much.

Not that the help here is not so good, but obviously the Opera Forum is better for Opera specific questions.
