Task List

There 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.
