Dragonfly arriving

Dragonfly blog has details and download links. dev.opera.com has technical details and tutorials.

Now, this is an alpha release. Some issues you may have to overlook gracefully include:

  • If you enable breaking on every script, the debugger will also break when Opera runs browser.js or user scripts – but no code will appear in the code pane! You will have to click "run" one or more times to get past your user scripts.
  • It only responds every second time you press [F10].. 😦
  • Live CSS editing is missing..
  • ..and so is HTTP logging and some other nice features that will arrive later.

That said, Dragonfly is already making itself useful in its present form. Have fun with it!

  1. I was afraid that opera would make Dragonfly a new window. I really wish i could somehow just put it into to a panel or something.I might try to hack it into a panel non the less :yes:

  2. I am OT and please dont get mad, but you really should buy a 2nd monitor shadow… Makes you work much better on everything. 😉

  3. (BTW please use Dragonfly with 9.5 beta 2 and not with the latest weekly snapshot – seem to be some regressions in that one that make Dragonfly misbehave somewhat..)

  4. Where will the next Dragonfly release be announced? I have signed so many Dragonfly related topics, I get a little bit confused. 😉

  5. That's a good question and I'm not even sure. Of course the debugging functionality in Opera's core will hopefully improve with the regular version updates, but the server-based Dragonfly app itself might be "upgraded" silently without announcements?

  6. Usually I'm not much into builds (nightly, weekly, every sunny day (great for Developers from Bergen I guess), etc.) but I want to help improving Dragonfly so I'll get those weeklies. :up:
