Re: New ChessX release

well imo, skid's look & interface is unworkable. this is potentially a -major- improvement, if the kinks can be worked out. i got analysis running, btw, but the analysis pane only displays one line at a time, at refreshing each iteration, thats not too good. needs a lot of work but i love the interf...

Re: Glaurung and Abaia Ipod version
