Release Notes: The handiest change in this release is support for very large chess boards. Other changes include a gamelist context menu, docking changes, and improvements to analysis, annotation, and computer tournament features.
Release Notes: This release is mainly a consolidation of the docked mode feature. Additionally, there is a new game history, and database sorting does not reset the filter or reset the current game, plus the usual array of bugfixes and tweaks.
Release Notes: The Docked Windows feature of mainline Scid is so popular, this release has adopted it. This allows a single-window mode where all top-levels are docked into a large main window in a customized tiled fashion. There is also a myriad of other changes, including a 'move search' feature and better support for Microsoft Windows.
Release Notes: Lots of minor new features make for an interesting release. These include drag and drop file opening, Opening Books with the Computer Tournament, custom board textures, and lots of FICS (online chess) refinements. There are also many minor bugfixes, and fixes for some lingering Tcl issues in the Mac OS X package.
Release Notes: This Windows-only update includes recent Tournament changes (with the Ponder-On feature) and fixes some annoying configuration file gremlins.
