- Use a drawer layout instead of the options menu to fix problems
on some new devices without a menu button. Swipe from left/right
screen edges to open the drawer menus.
- Moved "number of search threads" from preferences to UCI engine options.
- Added configurable button action to change UCI options.
- Updated stockfish to version 231015.
- At least Android 3.0 required.
Nathanael can you please check whether the v1.58 can use large hash? 256 and 512mb are ok? In fact i don't need any of the improvements but i need large hash.

I did not include the "large hash" change because I consider it too dangerous for the average user, but I updated the "large hash" apk version to include the latest changes from 1.58 and 1.59. You can get it from here:

Thank you Peter. The apk will be very useful to me. By the way I fully agree with your concern about average users. The risk is minimal on devices used for chess only but mobile phones with many resident apps are risky in terms of RAM.

Mr. Peter, you have done a fantastic job with the interface update. It is so smooth and fluid. I love the black white and red theme... Looks awesome!

Gurcan, sorry for the late reply my friend. Large Hash works on my Droid turbo. I can use up to 512mb.

In order not to have to create two versions in the future, I have instead added a "secret" way to enable use of unsafely large hash tables. Just create a file called "/<SD card>/DroidFish/uci/.unsafehash".

Since the average user will likely not find this information the risk of making their phones unstable is small.

This feature is implemented in the latest development version which can be downloaded from here:
