DreamChess features 3D OpenGL graphics and provides various chess board sets,
ranging from classic wooden to flat.
A moderately strong chess engine is included: Dreamer. However, should this
engine be too weak for you, then you can use any other XBoard-compatible chess
engine, including the popular Crafty and GNU Chess.
Other features include on-screen move lists using SAN notation, undo
functionality, and savegames in PGN format.

dreamchess (0.2.0-2) unstable; urgency=low
[ Cyril Brulebois ]
* Remove “-p1” from debian/patches/series since it's useless and since
it might cause an FTBFS with the “3.0 (quilt)” source package format.
* Move config.{guess,sub} update from the clean target to the
config.status one, and remove them in clean target instead, so as to
keep the Debian diff clean and not to cause an FTBFS with the new
“3.0 (quilt)” source package format. Thanks to Raphaël Hertzog for the
notice (Closes: #484970).
* debian/rules cleanup:
- Nuke trailing spaces.
- Use quilt.make include, and appropriate patch/unpatch dependencies
for the config.status and clean target, using an additional
realclean target for the latter.
[ Gonéri Le Bouder ]
* Use the Games/Board section for the Debian menu file
[ Barry deFreese ]
* Update my e-mail address.
* Change short description on -data package.
* Add description to quilt patch.
* Bump Standards Version to 3.8.1. (No changes needed).
