Difference: PluginGoban (r3 vs. r2)
The Goban plugin is a viewer and editor for Smart Game Format (SGF) files containing Go games. Go is also known as å²ç¢ (Igo), å´æ£ (Weiqi), ë°ë (Baduk) and Goe. The plugin also, of course, functions as a board for two people to play Go on.
To create a new SGF file or to play go with a friend, simply start the Goban plugin from the Plugins menu. Loading existing SGF files can be accomplished by selecting them in the File Browser (the plugin is registered as a viewer for .sgf files).
SGF files of File Format 3 and 4 will generally work. Almost all SGF files you will find are of one of these formats. The SGF Specification can be found at http://www.red-bean.com/sgf/ . A syntax checker for SGF files is also available there. The Goban plugin does not support the full range of SGF property types, but--in general--any that are not handled are preserved from loading to saving. That said, it is recommended that you make backups of your SGF files before editing them in the Goban plugin.
These are some specific caveats that you should know about:
