Here you can find history of recent versions of iPi Mocap Studio.

iPi Mocap Studio has built-in auto update functionality. Auto update feature is configured so that checks for update are made once per day. It helps to reduce the start time of the application. If you want to update ASAP — you can use the Help > Check for Update menu item.

Note that both of these features require Internet connection. Alternatively (in case of troubles with auto update), you can download and run the updated installation program from direct link.
