Default Jose GUI & Database: now with Fischer Random Chess


a new release of Jose Chess Database is available for download from

it introduces support for Fischer Random Chess (also known as Chess
960) and Shuffle Chess.

As usual, it is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
Existing installations can be upgraded easily through the menu Help /
Online Update.

I've run FRC games with Shredder, Spike and The Baron, not yet with
See for a list
of FRC capable engines.

If you have ideas or suggestions for opening book support, please let
me know.

Have fun,
