Home * User Interface * GUI * XBoard

XBoard is a graphical user interface for the Chess Engine Communication Protocol running under the Unix (Posix) operating system based on the X Window System, originally developed by Dan Sears and Chris Sears as a chess GUI for GNU Chess only [2]. In 1991 Tim Mann took over, became the main developer and he continued developing it parallelly with WinBoard [3] [4]. In Fall 2013, Joshua Pettus managed to port XBoard to MAC OS X using the native Quarz Graphics layer [5] [6]. When Harm Geert Muller took over the project, he focused on WinBoard only and XBoard code was abandoned. Users on Unix and Unix-like systems should use the X Window System to run the program[7].
