Hold'em Manager 2 Addresses PokerStars and iPoker Issues

If you don't already know, Hold'em Manager 2 is the preferred poker tracking database for many players.  There are many reasons for this, including the database being very powerful, the HUD providing endless stats and flexibility, and the plethora of add-ons.
One other major reason is that the company is dedicated to providing the best support and always attempts to give the best experience possible.  Part of this is that the developers of Hold'em Manager 2 are constantly rolling out new releases of the software to keep up with the times and address concerns of customers.
On June 22, Hold'em Manager released Version to address a few things relating to play on iPoker and PokerStars.  The release is in Beta mode and it would be easy enough to roll back to a previous version if there are problems occurring.
However, I recommend not to upgrade to this version if you do not play at either of these sites.  If after reading what the upgrade fixes you decide to upgrade to the latest version, Hold'em Manager 2 recommends you use a new database.  You can back up your existing database as well, as this should work in case there are issues.
If you were having trouble with Hold'em Manager 2 recognizing your iPoker hand history folder after the network upgraded its software, you should definitely download the new version of HM2, as the software now has improved detection, which should alleviate any problems you were having.
The rest of the fixes address issues on PokerStars.  The first fix is similar to the one with iPoker where it addresses issues with importing hand histories after the site's latest update.  If this was not a problem for you, you may want to consider not upgrading to the latest version of HM2 since the other two issues relate to customers playing in bounty tournaments.
One issue you may have noticed when playing bounty tournaments is that the bounty was not recorded properly for the last hand of the tournament.  This has now been fixed, so there is no reason to manually update this yourself going forward if you upgrade.
Also, progressive bounties are now properly recorded in the database.  However, this will only be going forward and won't apply to previous tournaments.  One way around this is to start with a new database after upgrading and then reimporting everything into the new database so the correct bounty amounts are shown.
If you aren't already using Hold'em Manager 2, we recommend giving it a shot.  The software can help your game immensely and unlike many other poker tracking databases out there, HM2 is constantly trying to improve its product rather than standing still with what they already have.  You can check tHEM out for free with a 30-day trial before committing to a purchase.  Check HM2 out today and see what you think.
