Opera was just updated in the Android Market today. While all the normal goodies were added (bug fixes and the like) this update now officially supports Honeycomb with the new large screen compatibility mode. The update also fixed some serious security holes in regards to the older version of the app storing cache files with permissions that were not restrictive enough. This could potentially allow for malicious apps to gain access to your sensitive data stored on your device’s SD card. As for the rest of the new stuff check out the changelog below:

  • Added support for font styles on Samsung Galaxy devices
  • Fix for problem with text disappearing in text fields
  • Fix for HTML5 <audio> tag auto-play
  • Fix for mismatched RGB colors on some devices
  • Fix for black screen when starting Opera Mobile on some devices
  • Fix for various stability issues on certain devices
  • Fix for various font issues on certain devices
  • Security update fix (see below)
