This is from the Vivaldi Team Blog site:

Today, we are thrilled to roll out an experimental build for Linux based ARM devices, including the increasingly popular Raspberry Pi.

Default Re: Vivaldi for Linux ARM, including the Raspberry Pi

Madeline,
Reading through I see this:-

For now, these builds will live alongside the official packages but are not considered to be “fully supported”. These means you are welcome to use them and let us know any problems that you encounter, but any issues found will not hold up the release cycle for our regular, supported desktop versions on Windows, macOS and Linux (x86/x86_64).

I presume that this is the same as the current solid Vivaldi but with this experimental beta attached, is that how you read it, or are there additional extras added beside the beta?

fosseway, as the title says, this is for "Vivaldi for Linux ARM, including the Raspberry Pi". As I have no Linux ARM devices, it won't be of any use to me. I made this post for anyone who does have such a device or devices.

Updated versions of Vivaldi for Windows, Linux and Mac will be issued as usual, the experimental build mentioned in the article is an entirely separate issue and, as they say, "any issues found will not hold up the release cycle for our regular, supported desktop versions...". Perhaps they should have elaborated a bit and also said "you are welcome to use them (the experimental builds for Linux ARM) if you have any Linux ARM devices and let us know any problems that you encounter".

Thanks Madeline,
Not using Linuk, I have no idea what ARM devices are? Just out of interest perhaps you could tell me?? "Active Recording Mode"?

Hello,

Simply put, a type of microprocessor chip using the RISC instruction set.

They are all around you now, eg. controlling your mobile phone , games console ,tv box etc etc.

Some detail here, lots more on the web if interested.
