Chess for Android v5.0: Time Control

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.
