Opera 5.05 for Linux Technology Preview 1 Introduces Java

OSLO, Norway - August 14, 2001 - Opera Software today released Opera
5.05 for Linux Technology Preview (TP). The browser updates the
current final version of Opera 5.0 for Linux by adding support for
Netscape plug-ins including Java, giving Linux users a faster,
better and less bloated Internet experience while enjoying their
favorite plug-ins for video, audio, document viewing, animation and
much more.

Technology preview is a term for a publicly released alpha version,
and bugs and crashes are to be expected when running plug-ins.
Opera's release of technology previews follows in the company's
tradition of openness towards the Internet community, inviting them
to provide feedback to Opera's developers, while watching the
browser's development unfold.

"This release is essentially an update to the final version of Opera
5.0 for Linux with added support for Netscape plug-ins," says Hakon
Wium Lie, Chief Technology Officer of Opera Software. "Users running
plug-ins may find unforeseen bugs or behavior in the browser, and we
are therefore inviting our Linux users to test the browser and
submit their bug reports."

Opera 5.05 for Linux Technology Preview 1 supports a wide variety of
Netscape plug-ins such as Flash and Plugger for audio and video,
Acrobat Reader to view pdf documents, and Sun Java 2 Runtime
Environment with Java Plug-in 1.3.1 for interactive Internet
services.

Opera continues its commitment to the standards as laid out by the
World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Opera 5.05 for Linux Technology
Preview 1 supports the following technologies: 128-bit encryption,
TLS 1.0, SSL 2 and 3, CSS1 and CSS2, XML, HTML 4.01, HTTP 1.1,
ECMAScript, JavaScript 1.3, partial DOM and WAP/ WML, as well as
support for Netscape plug-ins.
