  Description     : strong chess engine, to play chess against

 free chess engine derived from Glaurung 2.1. It is not a complete
 chess program, but requires some UCI (universal chess interface) compatible
 GUI like XBoard with PolyGlot, eboard, Jose, Arena or scid in order to be
 used comfortably. The strongest open source chess engine by october
 2009 in the computer chess rating list CCRL. It is written in C++ and uses
 multiple threads and cores. It is capable of Chess960 and has experimental
 support for polyglot opening books.

Why another chess engine? -- Why another editor?

Playing serious chess means also to analyze your own moves with the strongest
computer program currently available. Strength here is a relative
impression of the user. We give him various possibilitys.
