FEATURES:

[DONE] * Play from any position.
[PARTIALLY DONE] * Implement a real SDI interface.

* Configuration dialog.

  * General: language choice, automatically connect on startup, default variant, etc...
  * Connection: manage ics connections and options.
  * [DONE] Highlighting: manage highlighting patterns for the ics console.
  * [DONE] Animations: animation speed, graphical effects, etc...
  * [DONE] Theme: manage themes and theme options; choose default theme; associate themes with variants.
  * [DONE] Movelist: colors, fonts, animations and graphical effects preferences.
  * [PARTIALLY DONE] Clock: colors and fonts.
  * [BROKEN] Engine: List of engines, with type, command line options, working path, etc...

* GUI Tuning.

  Many things still have to be done to make the gui really user friendly (think about the Panda):
  * Message boxes to notify the user of error, for instance while connecting.
  * Restore a functional status bar.
  [SKETCHED] * Add some game info between the pools (like "FICS, rated crazyhouse")
  * Notify the user of Server/Engine events. I don't like the Babaschess-like popup when
    i get a match request, i'd prefer an amarok-like notification.

CURRENT RELEASE:

[DONE] * Set up a decent installation system, maybe with a cool one-click windows (linux?) installer.
[MOSTLY DONE] * Improve default highlighting script.
[DONE] * Add support for multiple ICS interactions.
[MOSTLY DONE] * More robust ICS support: do not crash when testing invalid moves.
[DONE] * About dialog.
[DOME] * Choose an icon for the application.

FUTURE RELEASES:

* Better support for variants in pgn games
* Pgn game list
* Fix examination variant upgrade
* Game print support, through khtml?
* Ability to define a variant in some script language (ruby or lua or ...)
* Complete support for chess engines or variant specific AI.
* An advanced Edit Position mode, with the ability to edit a position for
  an arbitrary variant, as well as the various flags such as the en passant
  square,  etc...
* Improve Examine Mode and Observe Mode:
  Movelist support for examination is not as extensive as it could, and I don't know if it will ever be.
  Problems:
  * [FIXED] Crash when going back to the starting position
  * [FIXED] Moves are sometimes not correctly displayed even where there's enough information available.
  Future possible features:
  * Execute move immediately instead waiting the server response, when possible.
    Note: this may prove hard to implement correctly, because one needs to filter out server responses
    (after a suitable consistency check) so that they do not cause wrong updates if they come out when they
    are already obsolete.
  * Display variations correctly in the movelist, instead of always replacing mainline entries.
    Note: hard to do, because the protocol sends very few information about the reason of a style12 update.
