The GNOME Project announced a few days ago the immediate availability for download and testing of the fourth development release towards the GNOME Chess 3.10 game for the upcoming GNOME 3.10 desktop environment.GNOME Chess 3.9.4 adds a highly anticipated Application Menu, adds a 256x256 icon, removes the menubar, and adds several items to the toolbar, which is now mandatory.
Moreover, GNOME Chess 3.9.4 fixes several annoying bugs, such as a crash when using Undo while viewing a previous move, a crash that occurred after completing a timed game, where the timer did not expire, as well as the insanely small load game dialog.
This release also adds the ability to save and load players' time, which remained in timed games. The autosave function is a lot smarter now, the promotion type selection dialog received various improvements, and a more natural message is used when prompting to save a completed game.
Last but not least, a default filename with the .pgn extension is now set for the save game dialog, and several translations have been updated in this fourth development release of the upcoming GNOME Chess 3.10 game. For more details, please read the official raw changelog.
Download GNOME Chess 3.9.4 right now from Softpedia. Remember that this is a development version and it should NOT be installed on production machines. It is intended for testing purposes only.
