Opera Mini Update for Palm OS
Opera Software has released a "silent" update for the Opera Mini browser. The new build addresses issues that were causing problems with the latest v4.1 release on many Palm OS devices. Opera reports the new version (4.1.11355) has better memory handling on Palm devices which should correct the missing image problems. There are also a few minor BlackBerry specific fixes and a bookmarking bug correction.
Users can download the latest version by visiting operamini.com on your phone. In order to use Opera Mini with a Palm OS device you need to have the Palm Java Micro Environment installed. Since Palm no longer distributes the JVM you need to already have it installed or find an alternate source (download link) for it online.
The Opera Blog post also includes a list of recommended settings that need to be configured within the prefs app under Java Settings. These are the same as what we recommend in our recent Palm OS web browsing article:
Use Double Buffering - on
Use high resolution coordinates - on
Set Memory Maximum: 1Mb
Set Maximum Java Thread Stack Size: 32kb
