The final release of Opera 7.50 is out since today. I patched the old opera-7.50_beta1.ebuild to install the new version.
Currently the main ftp-server is hard to reach, but mirrors are available on the website.

Opera Telnet URI Handler File Creation/Truncation Vulnerability
An addition to the vulnerability:
The bug is fixed since opera-7.50_beta1.
See the change Changelog for this http://www.opera.com/windows/changelogs/750b1/
Please please bump.
already bumped it, forgot to make a change to the bug ;)
Reopened as a security bug to treat the Opera Telnet URI Handler File Creation/Truncation Vulnerability in v <= 7.50 GLSA.
amd64 : please add ~amd64
sparc : please mark stable
Opera-7.50 complains on both x86 and sparc that it cannot find a spellcheck.so to load when it starts (this library is provided by opera). It doesn't appear to effect the browser itself much as you can still run it, but I haven't tested the mail components. Do we want to try and fix this now or after the GLSA?
So do we care that opera cannot load the spellcheck library or not?
Heinrich: could you look into the spellcheck.so problem ?
If it's an easy fix, it would probably be better to have it in. If it's not, we'll probably mark stable this version so taht the GLSA can get out...
since it is an configuration issue and another bug is open for it, we can close this one if the other arches mark 7.50 stable
sparc : please retest with 7.50-r1 and mark stable, the spellcheck issue should be solved (see bug #51183).
Removing ppc and amd64 from Cc: since no stable flags are needed from them.
Marked stable on sparc.
Thanks Jason !
This one is ready for a GLSA.
