q5go-0.2 is an SGF editor, IGS client and GTP interface. The 0.2 release is available in source form for Linux and as a Windows binary.

This is based on the old qGo by Peter Strempel and others, ported to Qt5, with many parts rewritten from the ground up. For a reasonably complete list of changes, see the release notes at the link above. The goal is to make this as complete and user-friendly an SGF editor as possible, with some useful features like diagram and SVG export.

Version 0.2 is mostly a maintenance release. The biggest fix is to make playing against a computer work on Windows, where I had some portability issues with Qt5's QProcess. The biggest new feature was actually inspired by the reddit thread for version 0.1. Someone suggested that the stone graphics haven't been updated in a long time, and I got motivated enough to write some code to generate a shaded 3D look which is very configurable in terms of general shape and material - I'd expect most people to find some way to generate the look for the stones that they want.

Here are some example:

The first post in this thread contains information about the current release. This post here will be updated to show information that was previously posted there.

Version 0.1 added export features which I expect to be of particular interest to members of this forum. It is possible to create ASCII diagrams, including move numbers, and automatically create several diagrams from one board position. It is also possible to limit the size of the diagram by selecting a rectangle. If there are any potential book authors reading this, they might be interested to know that q5go can also export vector graphics in SVG format. If there are any additional features that would be useful for that, please let me know.
