Snapshot Change logs - starting with the first 1.12 Snapshot

  • The sole purpose of this thread is to make the change logs searchable.

    It includes only snapshots - so I didn't copied any minor updates or stable change logs here. And because I am a bit lazy I stopped at the first snapshot for 1.12 so everything released before this date (15.08.2017) isn't covered by this post.

    I hope I chose the right place to post this - in case there will be a blog / database by Vivaldi this can be deleted and of course also if I shouldn't have posted those logs for whatever reason in the first place at all.

    I'll also try to keep track of the new change logs. If I forgot anything feel free to correct me or post missing logs yourself.
