Minor update to Vivaldi 1.5 – delta (small) update for Windows

With a minor upgrade to Vivaldi 1.5 we’ve added fixes for a number of small, but important issues in the latest stable release of the Vivaldi browser.

Yesterday we released a minor upgrade to Vivaldi 1.5 to fix a few, small but important issues found in the stable release. It was also the first time we tested our new delta update system on Windows. A normal upgrade of Vivaldi for Windows using our default packages would have resulted in a 38.5Mb download, however the delta upgrade is less than 1% of that size (323Kb). So small in fact that it would have fit on a floppy disk!

More seriously, this decrease is a fantastic saving for those of you who have metered bandwidth and makes the upgrade process much more reliable for those on poor connections.

  • [Windows] Updater window out of focus VB-22431
  • [Windows] Not all translation files get packaged (e.g. Mexican Spanish)
