The various Windows builds are accessible directly at 

What you got is the last released 1.05 Windows version.

There were some 1.05 development builds that didn't led to a release, 
the latest being gnubg-1_05_001-dev5-20150928-setup.exe Even if it is 
not an official release, this file would be a better choice since it 
fixes some bugs and has no known regressions.

After a two years hiatus there was an officiel 1.06.001 version,
gnubg-1_06_001-20171216-setup.exe but it suffers from a major bug on 
Windows (it crashes if used on anything but a fairly small screen). It 
might work for you depending on your laptop resolution but would 
probably crash if you use an external screen.

Finally there is gnubg-1_06_001-dev-20180521-setup.exe that fixes the 
above bug and a few other problems and is (close to) what will be the 
forthcoming 1.06.002.

I would be nice if you could use this last version and report potential 
blocking issues.
