By chance, I found the reference that I was referring to again:

I also found some mentioning that Opera implemented IDNA2008:
I haven't tested it, and I don't know what exactly (if anything) Opera 
is doing for backwards compatibility. (On the above page, IDNA 2003 is 
still mentioned as supported.) Simon, do you know more? Any feedback 
from Opera on IDNA 2008?
