Release Notes: This release fixed many bugs, especially for JDK 1.4/1.5. Some new features were implemented, including a board editor (for setting up arbitrary start positions). Network games can now be continued using the game upload. Several speed-ups and rewrites were made to the chess engine, making the program a better player.
Release Notes: The chess clock does not reset after each move when connected anymore, and the clocks for the black and the white player can be set separately.
Release Notes: Some bugfixes and improved PGN file support, including viewing and editing of variations, comments, and numerical annotation glyphs (NAG).
Release Notes: PGN file support and a chat list have been implemented. Most settings can be saved now. Colors can be changed in the config file (no GUI for that yet).
Release Notes: A browseable history list, field labels and draw/resign game functions for network games, changes to the chess clock must be confirmed by the opponent, and some bugfixes.
