Version 8 step 1

The next version will be the 8, I have no date for its publication, the most likely to take at least one year, in the meantime I will publish the development version from time to time.

To begin, some improves in relation to 7.05 :

  1. Visual changes, Options-Configuration:
    • Showing points of analysis:
      • White´s point of view. if positive wins white, if negative wins black. (shahingy)
      • Pawns vs Centipawns. ( F.Marmale)
    • Show move candidates, when pressing any square.
  2. Mouse shortcuts, extended.(bbbaro25us)
  3. Some GM personalities added to tourney-elo by Michele Tumbarello.

And the main change is not visible, the use of winglet engine (created by Stef Luijten, as a fast movement generator. The idea is to extend its use throughout the program.
