Chess for Android 3.0.1: XBoard/WinBoard

Version 3.0.1 of Chess for Android is available at the Android market and as direct download. It introduces the first, albeit simple support for the Chess Engine Communication Protocol (XBoard/WinBoard). Many features that are already supported for UCI (e.g. options setup, infinite analysis) as well as some XBoard specific features (e.g. resign) are still missing for this first version. I hope to add these features soon. Nevertheless, it is already possible to run tournaments between engines.
