Just under 2 weeks after releasing what could be the most anticipated software for the Windows Mobile platform, Opera has gone out and released an update to Beta 1. Yes it’s still called Beta 1 and not Beta 2 and for good reason too because there’s not much difference between this one and the one released during launch.
In fact, the only difference is that this newer release contains the solution to the bug that turned off notification sounds. While trivial and low risk, it’s a fix nonetheless and much welcomed. In the same blog entry, Opera also highlights a fix for those experiencing the Out of Memory problem, albeit temporary. You just need to move the cache to storage card as guided by WMExperts.
However, be advised that Opera might perform even slower and experience delays as the application reads and writes the cache. For those wondering about the SIP problem, here’s what Opera had to say:
Opera supports the SIP architecture and the IME architecture, so Opera works fine with the default Microsoft keyboards. Unfortunately, many new devices have shiny keyboards that look nice, but do not comply to Microsoft’s SIP [software-based input panel] and/or IME [input method editor] standard. Those keyboards work well on an edit control, but not with other applications that want to use user-input from a keyboard.
Well let’s hope they get all these sorted out and enable ActiveX quickly. I can’t wait to use the complete Opera Mobile 9.5.
