Panotour 2.5.4 is available

We are happy to announce the release of a new minor update for Panotour and Panotour Pro 2.5.x.

What’s new?

  • Distorted video spots worked since 2.5.3 on iOS mobiles, but without sound. We added a new option to allow you to add a sound track for video spots. This sound track is used only on iOs mobiles.
  • This version of Panotour/Panotour Pro generates tours using the sixth pre-release of 1.19 version of krpano
  • Mostly bug fixes for this release, refer to the full changelog to learn about what was fixed.

Important: Chrome Issues and warnings

  • On Chrome, since version 51, all tours generated with Panotour/Panotour Pro 2.5.x may encounter some fatal issues when the tour is starting.
    This version of Panotour/Panotour Pro contains a patch that fixes those crash issues.
  • If you installed the plugin named “PTP 2.5.3 – Fix Chrome crashes at start” as a workaround for this major issue in the previous version, make sure you remove it from your projects and from your user directory when using this update.
  • If you do not want to re-build old tours done with Panotour Pro 2.5.x version, you can apply a patch in the generated XML files. The patch is described here :
    http://www.kolor.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=92&t=32397
  • HTML templates – If your tours use custom HTML templates like the Bootstrap_External_Commands_Wall or the Bootstrap_Hierarchical_Top_Navbar, we recommand you to update your templates, because some issues occured on the floorplan and in the settings of VR mode when using them.
  • Google updated its Google Maps API policies and pricing. So if your tours use a Google Map, you should read the updates here.

    Hey, I just upgrade to PTP 2.5.4. But I find that Radar radius is separated from the dot….I found this result after I Render the project. (must be the 2.5.4 version bug)
    When I change back to PTP 2.5.3 ,the result is correct.
