Some time ago we released the 64-bit offline version of Opera for Windows. Since then, we’ve worked hard to make it fully functional and now are able to present the Network Installer for 64-bit builds. This is the well known network installer you already use to install Opera, but this version is smart enough to install the best option for you. In other words, it detects the architecture it’s run on, and installs either the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Opera. Moreover, it’s able to upgrade (please don’t confuse with “auto-update”) from the 32-bit to the 64-bit version. After the upgrade, the 32-bit version is removed from the system. Of course it will keep your profile, so your data is protected, and the transition is smooth (you may not even notice it).
For these who don’t want to change their version, we’ve left an option to prevent the transition:
Opera x64 vs. Opera x86 (32 bits)
This update brings also many bugfixes. Most important are:
- Crash after double click on video detach icon on OS X is fixed
- Click to play option is selectable again
- Full screen mode issues are solved
