'New in this version are mostly bugfixes and improvements in detail:

Tournament bugs removed

Open tournament in browser from tournament dialogue now works
Free RAM display now from /proc/meminfo instead of SysInfo
Rating calculation: "Aggregate results" and "copy files to" now works
Rating calculation: Ordo works now additionally in ELOStat mode
Rating calculation: You can import the rating results from file into Arena
Many other bugs removed
Better support for dark themes
Small improvements in various areas'

Thank you for the Information. Unfortunately there are still some bugs for me:

- move animation leaves traces of small lines around squares the piece is moving across
- when going through a game move-by-move, sometime one click triggers 2 half moves to be (re-)played
- engines install via "Engines --> Install new Engine..." are not installed properly (there is never really a dialog popping up where you can confirm if it's UCI/xboard and the Engine is always Called "New Engine") -> installing it via "Engines --> Manage..." works fine.

anyone else experiencing this?
