After some delay, I finally released version 5.0 of Chess for Android, available on Google Play or as direct download. New features include: Time control to define a chess clock for both sides with a choice between the number of moves between time control (possibly the full game), thinking time per time control, and an optional time increment per move.Double engine analysis lines during tournaments, especially useful with pondering on.Re-factored a lot of the engine handling code, with improved cleanup of hanging engines. This is a relatively major release, so please let me know if you encounter any issues. Also, as usual, suggestions for improvements are welcome.
