Some Chess 2.0 (Final Release)

The final release of Some Chess 2.0 is out now. It is, as far as I know, completely bug free.

Now it is time to gear up for version 2.5. Mostly that means adding translations, that’s going to be the focus. But there will also be a limited number of new features.

The big news is that the forum on sourceforge will be shut down soon and support will be moved to the Some Chess website.

Also, there will be a wiki with the aim of making translation work easier for everyone. The wiki will probably also have a documentation focus, but the big thing is getting the translation done in as many languages as possible.

Thanks to everyone who’s help in so many ways to make Some Chess possible!

    Changes in Some Chess 2.0

  • fixed “problemo” bug
  • fixed what I think is the final checkmate bug!
  • other minor code improvements

Some Chess 2.0 release candidate 3

My fingers are crossed… it looks like this might be the last (or near the last) version of Some Chess before it is a full release. I’ve been working on Some Chess for almost a year now, and while I can see places to improve I have to say that I am pleased with the progress from the first version to what will be version 2.0

A big thanks to the folks that have helped Some Chess along the way.
