Please upgrade opera in dapper-commercial to 9.02

Bug #62405 reported by Conrad Knauer
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Tollef Fog Heen

Bug Description

The Ubuntu Dapper Commercial Repository hosts the Opera web browser. When it was introduced, dapper-commercial had the latest version, 9.00; since then version 9.01 was released as a DEB on the Opera site, but was not picked up in dapper commercial. Now version 9.02 is out (also as a DEB) and contains a fix for a "highly critical" security flaw:

Please update the dapper-commercial version as it is a security risk!

BTW, when I tried to submit this bug, the package "opera" DOES appear when I searched for it with "Choose.." but when I pressed submit it said:

"opera" does not exist in Ubuntu. Please choose a different package. If you're unsure, please select "I don't know"

Tollef, I vaguely remember that you're the person with contacts at opera, so I subscribed you.

Louis: you can always add the official Opera repository to your sources.list file:

from Terminal run:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

add these two lines:

## Opera
deb testing non-free

save the file and then add the Opera public key by running the following:

gpg --keyserver --recv 6A423791 && gpg --export --armor 6A423791 | sudo apt-key add -

Run Synaptic, press reload and apply and you should get the latest version of Opera if you already have the "opera" package installed.
