2. Termination of support for Palm OS 3.0

AIGO supports Palm OS 3.1 or higher since V2.0.0. (It was Palm OS 3.0 or higher until the last version.) This is because AIGO has been implemented a lot of new features and this may cause memory shortage on the device installed Palm OS 3.0.

3. About the releases in future

Though I have been implementing the least required features for Go software in V1.x series, I will improve AI in the next V2.x series. For the first, I think I "taught" AIGO about Uttegaeshi (snapback) and how to contend with Ko. (Though AIGO doesn't often follow me...)

Apr. 26th, 2003

May 19th, 2002

1. About Undo/Redo feature

Though Undo/Redo feature is supported since V1.4.0, it works in case that the "Undo/Redo" preference is checked. Many users requested Undo/Redo feature, but on the other hand a number of users wrote me it should not be supported. AIGO had not been supporting the feature because "Undo" is not allowed in the rule of Go game. But it is true that users sometimes put stones at wrong position due to the small Palm screen. To resolve this problem, I implemented Undo/Redo feature and users can decide the adoption of the rule. The default is off ("Undo is not allowed") by the original concept.

May 4th, 2002

1. V1.4.0 release

I have released V1.4.0. I implemented Undo feature which was requested by many users.
