DreamChess 0.3.0 is finally here. Eleven years have passed since the last official release, with only a few release candidates happening in between. Why has it taken so long? One reason is that the DreamChess team currently consists of only two developers. Another reason is that we received very little feedback for these release candidates, which made us reluctant to put up a new official release. Especially considering the time and effort that goes into building, testing and uploading official binaries.
After using the old website design for over a decade, we’ve finally switched to something new. Additionally, we’ve enabled https on the website, now that GitHub supports https on custom domains.
We uploaded 0.2.1 RC2 in November, but unfortunately we haven’t gotten any feedback on it at all. If you tried this version, please let us know if it works for you. You can contact us at feedback AT dreamchess DOT org. Thanks!
DreamChess 0.2.1 release candidate 2 contains a number of new bug fixes. Most importantly, it contains new code to fix a problem some configurations were having with selecting chess pieces. If you’re seeing a regression because of this new code, e.g. DreamChess fails to start up or you can’t select chess pieces with the mouse, please contact us at feedback AT dreamchess DOT org
