Opera 61 has reached the developer branch. The initial release 61.0.3268.0 of the browser features support for system dark mode in Windows 10, along with a number of other changes.

As you may remember, Opera 45 introduced dark mode that could be enabled by the user  manually. Version 61 changes this. Now the browser respects the user preferences made under Personalization > Colors in the Settings app of Windows 10.
