Broken Auto-Updater in GoPanda2

Unfortunately, we released two versions of GoPanda2 where the auto updater was disabled by accident. If you happened to update GoPanda2 between the 1st and 4th August 2020, please do the following steps to make sure your client will keep updating in the future:

1) Click on the menu button in the top right corner of GoPanda2.

2) Select About at the bottom of the menu.

3) Check the version number next to GoPanda. If it happens to be exactly 2.7.0 or 2.7.1, please uninstall GoPanda2 and download it again from here.

We are sorry for your inconvenience.

GoPanda 2.6.0 released

We are pleased to announce that GoPanda 2.6.0 is out! For this release we reworked and modernized a lot of things under the hood, although it still looks as before. Most importantly, it works with Mac OS Catalina. But there are quite a few more fixes.

Please uninstall the old client completely before installing the new one.

GoPanda 2.5.2 released

This GoPanda2 update brings an important bugfix and some small improvements:

  • 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.
