GNU Chess 6 released
     posted by aceballos, Tue 26 Apr 2011 11:47:52 PM UTC - 0 replies

The first version of GNU Chess 6 has been released.

Version 6 is a major change of GNU Chess, because it is based
on Fruit v2.1, a completely different chess engine. Fruit was written
by Fabien Letouzey, thus he is the primary author of GNU Chess v6.

Version 5 is no longer under active development. We will maintain
it for essential bugs for some time, but of course we recommend
using version 6.
