Opera 36 64bit edition for Windows?

  • Where can I find a link for the 64bit edition for Windows? For some reason the default download page only downloads the x86 edition

  • There isn't one. There is an experimental one on developer channel but there's no ETA on when it will reach stable channel.

  • Oh, I thought there would be since there is a 64 bit edition for Linux. Oh well. Can you tell if this lack of ETA is due to no-one actively working on it, or is it safe to assume that it will eventually reach stable channel?

    And, is the developer one compatible to the stable? For instance, if I start using the developer one now, can I move my settings to the stable one once it releases?

  • Developer is always about two version numbers in the future. I would not try to copy your profile from one to the other. That said, they install in different locations by default so you can happily have Opera Stable, Beta and Developer installed on the same machine without problems.

  • I thought there would be since there is a 64 bit edition for Linux

    It's because you can't run 32 bits programs on a 64 bits Linux. Or, at least, it may not be that simple as in Windows.

    Can you tell if this lack of ETA is due to no-one actively working on it

    Nope, it's because this is something new that needs to be tested and reach a stable state before go to the stable channel.

    is it safe to assume that it will eventually reach stable channel?

    It will, most probably. But it may take a long time.

    And, is the developer one compatible to the stable?

    It's not advised to copy from stable to developer. Best option would be to enable Sync on both.
