Can any developer update chessx?

Postby Bhu » Apr 16th, '21, 15:47

Hello,

Sorry, I don't know if this is the correct place in the forum to request for an application update, this is my first time in the forum.

The version here in Mageia of Chessx is not the latest, It is outdated, this one apparently only has a patch, it is identical to the previous 1.4.6, nothing changes in its configuration as it seems to me that chessx-1.5.6 does. (please, no compilations/complications :) ...).

Thanks for any help in this matters.

Hi there, please have a look at https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Updates_policy
Packages are usually not just updated because "they are not the latest".

Is there any actual bug with the current version?

Ok, thanks, i know i need to check at some informations about Mageia, no, there is not any bug just that it is an antique ...

By the way i was looking at the package manager and found that chess here is very poor, Arena is missing, stockfish12 and other chess engines are not available, any idea if there will be something ... in the near future?

Thank you very much.
