Quite some time after a successful move to Extragear and Git, there is finally an official stable version of Knights for KDE SC 4.
Currently, Knights has all the basic chess features:
- Playing against a human on the same computer, on the FICS server, or against a computer engine
- Rules checking
- Markers for possible moves, opponent’s moves and danger
- Chess clocks, both digital and analog (from the Plasma theme)
- Four different themes, with the option to download more from kde-look.org
- Animations (if using Qt >= 4.6)
Source and binary packages can be downloaded from http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php/Knights?content=122046. Happy testing, and please report any problems, bugs and wishes.
A note too all people signing praises to the theme: The analog clock is from Plasma, you can change its appearance by changing your Plasma theme in System Settings => Workspace Appearance. Chess pieces and tiles on the second picture were done by Eugene Trounev.
