Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Opera Software has released a production FreeBSD version of its Opera browser, bringing the total number of operating systems catered for by the company to eight, according to the company. This however would come to a lot more if you said 'platforms' instead, and if you counted different OS variants, but we're not going to do that.

Opera CEO Jon S von Tetzchner said that he expected the new version to "strike a chord with many enterprise customers." The release was also welcomed by FreeBSD Core Team member Robert Watson. It's available for download now from opera.com.

Also today in Oslo Opera unveiled version 6.1 for Linux, which fixes a number of bugs, enhances font support (including Chinese, Japanese and Korean) and adds Java support without the use of a plug-in. And other stuff.

Opera is currently running a registration promo whereby people registering ($29) get a free upgrade to version 7 when it ships, access to personal support via e-mail, and free Operamail Premium for six months (starting from the time Opera 7 has been downloaded). ®
