Task ListThere are a few tasks of various difficulty and size. So far, non-GUI tasks are listed:
- New PGN parser
- It should be cleaner and much faster than current one and also offer better API, allowing, for example, to parse given string as PGN game(s). We already know a few methods and tricks to achieve high speed, but somebody needs to code it.
- Add frequency to ECO database
- Required to improve Guess The Move. For example, after 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 clicking on bishop f1 should guess 3. Bb5 instead of current 3. Bc4.
- Tournament table
- Given a set of game (via Filter class) calculate crosstable, places, optionally also ratings and tiebreaks.
- EGTB support
- Support local tablebases (probably using Nalimov code).
- Material search
- Add Search subclass to match various material configurations.
