The Vivaldi team has gathered for our yearly meetup just outside of Boston at Innovation House in Magnolia. We’re already logging some time in the sunshine and firing up BBQs every chance we get, but while here we’re also cracking on with some exciting work on all things Vivaldi. And on that note, today we’ve got the first Snapshot for 1.11 ready for you.
The biggest news with today’s Snapshot is the addition of a configuration panel for Reader Mode. This panel will allow you to fine tune things like font type and size, line height and switching from light/dark themes while using Reader Mode. To access the new settings, enter Reader Mode then click the reader icon in the Panel (found at the bottom of the column just above the Settings icon). Give it a try and let us know what you think.
Apart from that, this Snapshot also squashes a few bugs we found in last week’s release of 1.10. Change log below!
