Snapshot 1.0.118.2 now available

Good news, everyone! We are back to seed the newest 1.0.118.2 snapshot. We have focused on details surrounding tabs, bookmark management, and solved some issues with plural form localization. Here are few highlights from the long list of fixes and additions. Please let us know if you find any critical bug as this snapshot is a release candidate for Vivaldi Technical Preview 2.

One notable feature is tab pinning support. Pinned tab will conveniently stick to the edge of the tab bar and refuse to mingle with other tabs. It will also shrink to a minimal icon size while suppressing the close button.

Speaking of tabs, we have added handy tooltips showing the page title in case you have tab thumbnails turned off. The tab indicators in a tab stack will now hint the page title as well. Tooltips can show additional information too, such as pinned status or number of items in tab stack.

Add Bookmark dialog was re-dressed with a new “card” style, as well as the detailed view in the Bookmarks panel.

That brings us to another detail to look forward to in panels: no need to open downloads panel to check on transfer progress anymore. The panel icon now indicates overall downloads progress and a tooltip will tell you how many active transfers there are.

As far as browsing itself goes, feel feel to try an early version of spatial navigation using Shift and arrow keys as directional shortcuts. Please note that it is work-in-progress and some strange behavior is to be expected.

Lastly, we have expanded supported languages with latest addition for Croatian, Korean, Vietnamese, Norwegian, Nynorsk and Ido. That brings the total number to 35 supported languages, some of which go beyond the list of languages supported by Chrome.

Please refer to the changelog below for full list of tackled issues.
