Emacs Chess is an object-oriented library written in Elisp for manipulating chess objects (games, plies, positions, etc.), and for displaying them. It supports a wide range of engine modules to use as move sources, and another set of modules for displaying the various kinds of chess objects. This allows chess.el to act as both a fully-featured chess client and a convenient library for writing analysis or training software (within Emacs).
Release Notes: This maintenance release includes several bugfixes.
Release Notes: This version corrects several bugs over beta 3, and rewrites the ICS interface (used for playing on chess servers). chess.el is once again under active development. Mario Lang is the new maintainer.
No changes have been submitted for this release.
Release Notes: This beta version of chess.el is fully functional as a chess client for playing against computer engines (such as GNU Chess or crafty). It is mostly playable against opponents on the network, either over ICS, IRC, or direct Emacs-to-Emacs.
