GoPanda 2.5.2 released
This GoPanda2 update brings an important bugfix and some small improvements:
- Better connection timeout detection. This should fix a serious bug where people didn’t know they were disconnected until they ran out of time.
- News section improved: All images are displayed correctly now. There are a lot of design improvements here, too.
- Score estimator bugfix: Captures are now correctly counted in review and local boards, too.
This update will be installed automatically.
Please tell us in case you run into any problems. Apart from that, enjoy!

Bugfix - Connection Problems
We just released a hotfix for a problem that has prevented users with a new account from connecting to IGS using GoPanda2. If you have been affected, please try connecting now and contact us if the problem persists.
EDIT: There seems to be another Bug affecting WinXP users. We haven’t found the reason yet. If you are affected, we recommend upgrading to a more recent version of windows, or using GoPanda1 until we fixed it.
New installment of GoPanda2 ready for testing!
Aside from a ton of bugfixes and new features, we also moved away from java as the supporting technology. The new client handles like a native app, and doesn’t rely on any specific browser being installed anymore. There will be a no installation, web-only version too but we have to do some preparatory work before we get there.
To use the new client, just download the archive for your system, extract it to a destination of your choice, and run GoPanda2.
You can find them here:
| Windows | Macintosh | Linux 32 Bit | Linux 64 Bit |
This client downloads updates automatically, but we don’t have the manpower to test this and the other new features properly. Please tell us if you run into problems, and as always, mail your criticism, ideas and suggestions to us: GoPanda2@pandanet-igs.com.
Thanks, and we hope you enjoy using the new and improved client!
