Stable upgrades missing changelogs at all
I'm running vivaldi-stable on Debian and I like it. So on Sep 8 2016, there was the update to 1.4. I could find the changelog in the blog posts, so far so good [UPGRADE] vivaldi-stable:i386 1.3.551.38-1 -> 1.4.589.11-1 But since then I had 3 differrent minor ugrades Sep 12 2016 [UPGRADE] vivaldi-stable:i386 1.4.589.11-1 -> 1.4.589.15-1 Sep 19 2016 [UPGRADE] vivaldi-stable:i386 1.4.589.15-1 -> 1.4.589.21-1 and today Sep 22 2016 [UPGRADE] vivaldi-stable:i386 1.4.589.21-1 -> 1.4.589.29-1 For none of these I find a changelog or any reason why this minir upgrades happened. I don't doubt there are good reasons, but somehow I really would like to know them, 3 upgrades of a stable withing 10 days seems not very normal. I deliberately changed from snapshot to stable months ago cause there were too many ugrades to cope with. The deb-packages provide a changelog file, but this is meaningless and not very informational. [i]vivaldi-stable (1.4.589.29-1) stable; urgency=low * Build spec: https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src.git/+/1.4.589.29/ * Release Notes: https://www.vivaldi.com/[/i] The first link gives a 404, the second one is just a link to the general startpage and no release notes. So it would be nice if there is any way to provide some meaningful information to users.
They are obviously bug fixes because only the last part of the version number has changed. As for why they've released them in such a rapid succession, I have no idea.
From Windows :
Version 1.4.589.11 was the "stable"
The update to 1.4.589.29 had fixes for GPU + HTML5 Video problems. There was a Twitter post about this https://twitter.com/vivaldibrowser
The two intermediate ones I didn't see on Windows !?
But you're right., no "official" changelog.
