Panotour 2.5.11 is now available!We are happy to announce the release of a new minor update for Panotour and Panotour Pro 2.5.x. This new version introduces major changes with the gyroscope management on Android devices. We strongly advise all users who have virtual tours created with Panotour Pro 2.5.10 or older that are meant to be viewed on Android devices using Chrome to generate their tours again with this new version. Starting April 17, 2018, virtual tours created with Panotour Pro 2.5.10 or older will still be playable on Chrome for Android but the gyroscope might not work – or will have an erratic behavior. Panotour Pro 2.5.11 also fixes a couple of minor bugs. For more info about the gyroscope management changes and the bugs that have been fixed please read the change log below:
Changelog for Panotour / Panotour Pro 2.5.11
Issues with the gyroscope plugin
The Android Chrome 65 version has two core browser bugs related to gyroscope usage. Panotour Pro versions up to 2.5.10 use a workaround to make the gyroscope plugin and VR mode work.
The next Chrome version, scheduled on April 17, will fix these two bugs BUT it will also introduce major changes in the gyroscope management.
This Panotour Pro 2.5.11 version, already embeds code that takes into consideration those future changes.
That's why we recommend to update your tours with this new Panotour Pro version if they use the gyroscope, either in standard mode or in VR mode.
