Description (last modified by sebastian)


Currently, Adblock Plus can be installed on outdated Opera versions where it won't work. This will raise the impression that its Adblock Plus' fault being broken, when the user rather has to update their browser.

On Chrome, on the other hand, you cannot install Adblock Plus if it requires a newer Chrome version, neither do you get updates, like it should. This mechanism is enabled by the minimum_chrome_version field in the generated mainfest.json, which is populated with the value of from Opera supports the same mechanism, but the field is called minimum_opera_version and must refer to the respective Opera version instead, which however isn't supported by buildtools.

What to change

If compat.opera is configured in the metadata.* file ...

opera = 36.0

... the generated manifest.json file should include the minimum_opera_version key and the respective value (just like is already implemented).

  "minimum_opera_version": "36.0",
