Re: a brief update - yet another name change

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.50, supporting Fischer Random Chess

Re: Honey-XPro Release

So weird... when I copied and pasted this yesterday, I guess something was wonky with the fen.... I did it again this morning and it pastes correctly and Qh4 (which was the top choice yesterday with my messed up fen -- haha) is nowhere to be found. Fun stuff.
