Dillo: http://www.dillo.org/

Midori: http://twotoasts.de/index.php/midori/

Opera: http://www.opera.com/download/


I'm on VL-6 and my gslapt tells me:

Dillo:
2.2-i586-1vl60 (actual version is 3.0.1)
I saw a hint about Dillo-3.0 being in VL-7: http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=14946 - if Dillo will not get updated for VL-6, that would be another reason to reinstall VL, but I'm not quick on such decisions...

Midori:
0.1.8-i586-1vl60 (actual version is 0.4.6)
Forum search found something "midori-0.3.2-i586-1vl70.txz" but the link leads to an error: "The topic or board you are looking for appears to be either missing or off limits to you." Anyway, 0.3.2 would still be outdated.

Opera:
10.11-i586-2vl60 (actual version is 11.64)
This is hardly an issue for me because I always install Opera from the tar file provided by the Opera company themselves. Anyway, the official Version seems to be quite outdated, so you may want to improve the situation.  Wink

Of course I could install all of them from the original sources like I always do with Opera - but then I circumvent the package system, which might be not good. (With Opera I pretty much know what I'm doing, but I'm not so sure with the others.)

VL-6.0 is getting a little long in the tooth and I don't know of anybody who is packaging for it any longer.  I certainly can't speak for everybody and maybe someone will come along.

Can I ask why the hesitation moving into vl7.0? All the updated packages you want are there.
