No x86_64

Mh, unfortunately there's no x86_64 build yet (at least I couldn't find one on the FTP).

I was interested in the new rendering engine and the faster start speed - and I doubt the beta is much worse than the Opera 9.5b2 I'm currently running...

If you are 1337 enough to use x86_64 you can compile it from source ;o).

Or do you win Windows x64? Cause it's a nightmare to compile on windows I've tried it before.

Sure I could, but I don't think there's anything "elite" about using x86_64 nowadays.

It's most probably the second widespread architecture out there and most open source do already ship prebuilt binaries, so I consider it a bit strange for one of the best-known projects not to offer builds at all.

And no, I'm using Arch64 here.
