Opera Software today announced the first public beta of the new Opera version 7. It comes with a new email/news-client, support for the W3C DOM, as well as a brand new look and many other features. You can download it here (only for Windows at the moment).
They announced that they were working on this new version several months ago, so the wait has been long, but it looks like it’s been worth it. The final release, as well as versions for other OSs will probably be ready some time closer to christmas. In the meantime I’m really gonna enjoy testing it!
