Opera 10.0 Alpha 1 includes Presto 2.2, an updated version of Opera’s Core. Presto 2.2 features numerous new features and loads of bug fixes.

 

autoupdate

Opera will now update itself as new versions are released, there was a long time that I was waiting for this features. And for those of you who want every single snapshot release just enable the "Download All Snapshots" setting (opera:config#AutoUpdate).

 

spellcheck

Opera now checks your spelling as you write! The inline spelling checker is enabled by default for multi-line edit fields and this Alpha comes with a US English dictionary. Use the context menu of input fields to change the settings, and to correct spelling errors.

 

mail-html

Opera Mail can now send rich text messages! You can insert inlined images, styled text, links, custom HTML, and more!
