64-bit version?

  • [b]I thought I had installed the latest 64-bit version, apparently not.[/b]

    It took a while to find the 64-bit version, which was here:
    ftp://ftp.opera.com/pub/opera/win/1218/en/

    But as soon as I loaded it up I got a message saying that I'm not using the latest version of the browser and I should upgrade. Following that link pointed me to the standard 32-bit version of the browser, I don't know which version is suggested.

    My post above sounds more like a complaint, but my question is not:
    How do I enable auto-update to make sure my Windows 64-bit version of Opera is always the latest version?

  • Currently the 64 bits version for Windows is on developer channel only.

  • Which is to say, if you install the 64-bit Developer version from the Desktop blog page it should auto update to the following versions when available - but Developer is still considered unstable and thus not really intended for use as your primary browser. Though I've used it for years now and only had a couple of times it gave me trouble.

    Whenever they decide 64-bit has matured sufficiently they will graduate it to Beta and then Stable, but note that Developer will never auto update to Stable.
