Just in time for summer holiday-travel season, geolocation services makes a comeback on MacOS! Vivaldi now uses MacOS’ built-in CoreLocation system, powered by Apple Location Services. This brings Vivaldi for MacOS on par with Vivaldi for Windows, which uses the built-in Microsoft Location Service.

You may need to go into the System Settings app: Privacy and Security: Location Services and grant Vivaldi and Vivaldi Snapshot access to use geolocation. (See our blog post on How geolocation works and the Apple Location Services Privacy Policy.)

New in this release, we have also improved and extended how you can configure the address field suggestion drop-down box. You can now reorder and arrange things just how you like them in Settings: Address Bar: Drop-Down Menu Priority. This new interface replaces some old settings, including the “Always Prefer Bookmarks” setting.

Lastly, you can now login to Mail and Calendar with your Fastmail account using the OAuth login method. You can optionally keep using an app-specific password.

There are 20 other changes and fixes in this release, so do check-out the changelog below!
