Slightly oddly, the changelog for this is dated back at the end of July, but the update has only just hit my Lumia 1020, so....
Changes for Opera Mini v18.104.22.168 are quoted as:
Background theme switching
An option to prevent loading images
A live tile on your phone’s Start screen that shows your data savings
Support for new languages: German, Italian, French and Polish
A number of bug fixes and improvements
The image loading toggle seemed to be missing in action, but here's some of the rest in action:
I hadn't seen these opening animations (the red O gets assembled by lasers and stuff!) and intro screen before, but it all helps give a polished impression.
Web browsing is fast and data efficient - the toolbar and top bar get shrunk when swiping around, thankfully, but can be brought back at any time.
As usual with data-compression proxy systems though, interactive features do get dropped along the way - here the AAWP Disqus comments get lost.... (right) the data savings so far are represented on the attractive live tile.
Private mode is new and presents a parallel set of tabs in which no incriminating records are kept, as you'd expect. (Though the usual caveats about your network/ISP, Google, GCHQ and others knowing are all still relevant, of course!)
The bottom Opera button brings up this top level toolbar, shown against the 'home' (and customisable) 'Speed Dial' pane; (right) there's no sign of an image download toggle, but there's plenty more to fiddle with in Settings...
