I remembered this topic from awhile ago. Appears he is still involved in Chess, but nothing here about M-Chess update

Anticipated in 2009!!!

" still intend to release this and I have started working on it, but have many other projects going, so it will take a while. I am hoping to make it available by fall 2009.

Cheers,
