Hi Zwifters, Zwift Game version 1.39.0 has begun rolling out today. This phased release will take place over a couple of days. We are continuing to test out a phased rollout approach for select releases in order to offer the best member experience. In addition, Zwift is moving to a two week release cadence which will allow for more frequent updates! With this change and the scale of last month’s phased release, we skipped some release numbers. With release 1.39, we are now back on our planned schedule.
- Made changes to PowerUps to improve their effectiveness and usefulness. These changes apply to PowerUps any time they are earned, and are not specific to events. More information in the forum post at this link. Due to the staggered rollout of this release, the changes to PowerUps will be made once 100% of Zwifters have the release to avoid having different PowerUp effects and durations active at the same time.
- Coffee Stop is coming May 10! Coffee Stop allows you to take a break for up to 3 minutes while your avatar stays with the group. This feature is available for up to 30 seconds in the first 5 minutes of your ride, and then available for the full 3 minutes after 30 minutes of riding. Once you activate Coffee Stop, you will have up to 3 minutes to step off your bike for any reason, and will then have to wait 30 minutes to use it a second time. You can read more information about Coffee Stop in our This Season on Zwift post here.. UPDATE MAY 10: Coffee Stop is live!
- Repack Ridge is temporarily closed while we work on exciting improvements.
- Starting with version 1.39, we will no longer support OpenGL on macOS. All new versions will only support Metal.

- Fixed an issue that would cause the drops multiplier to incorrectly change when disabling the HUD during Pacer Group rides.
- Resolved issue with ‘Completed Challenge’ banner not displaying

May the Fourth Be With You
With the 1.39.0 rollout, we’re also adding folders to the Custom Workouts interface. These changes don’t add new functionality, but it does make it easier to use this functionality by making it available in our newer workout UI.
1.39.0 allows this functionality on the Custom Workouts page:
- Training Peaks and Today’s Plan workouts are now in a folder, making them easy to find for those using these imported workouts.
- Zwifters who organize their custom workouts into folders on Mac or PC will now find these folders in the Custom Workouts UI. These folders will continue to sync across platforms. Additional subfolders are not supported.
- The “Create Workout” button is now the first card on the Custom Workouts page.
