GoPanda2 - Tester's Preview Released!

We are pleased to announce that a preview of GoPanda2 is available for testing now.
It features a complete redesign and runs in your browser. We felt that improving the old client didn’t take us were we wanted, so we decided to rewrite large parts of it. We strived for a much cleaner interface, a homogeneous design and a better overall experience. It took us a while, but we believe the results are worth the wait. Let us know what you think!
Please direct your ideas, praise and criticism to .

We will publish all information regarding the development on GoPanda2 here:
