Today’s snapshot is our first release candidate for 1.8 stable and includes fixes for history and UI zoom.
We are very close to the 1.8 final now. Please continue to inform us of any nasty regressions since 1.7.
We love hearing from our users about what they think about the Vivaldi browser and how they use it in their daily lives. We’ve had a chat with Yeeliberto, who has been using Vivaldi since the very beginning of our journey.
Another stepping stone on our way to a great 1.8 final, today’s snapshot includes improvements to history, new settings, and fixes for some annoying regressions.
Late yesterday we released a minor upgrade to Vivaldi 1.7 to fix an issue with the Windows installer.
It’s always inspiring to speak with like-minded people and hear their feedback about what we do here at Vivaldi. Spending last week in the San Francisco Bay Area and meeting fellow entrepreneurs, journalists and our users has given us lots of ideas to ponder upon.
In this snapshot we start to focus on stabilization for the 1.8 final, with the priority switching to fixing regressions. We have also started to resolve some long standing translation issues.
Research, fact-checking, speaking to sources and even writing articles – many journalists do all of this without leaving the browser. Here’s how Vivaldi can help you nail your next breaking story.
This is a historic snapshot for us because we re-wrote the history feature. We also fixed almost 40 bugs and upgraded the Chromium backend.
