A new version of GNUbg is available at https://www.gnu.org/software/g
with the following improvements or new features since the previous version.
Improvement to cube decisions at 0- and 1-ply and weaker levels. Cube
error rates are approximately halved and the repartition of errors
(premature doubles vs. missed doubles vs. take or pass errors) is now
similar to higher plies instead of being mostly premature doubles.
New button to analyse the current match with one click instead of going
through a menu. Optionally runs in background and allows to start
browsing the results while the analysis is still running.
New button to analyse a file. This offers three usage modes:
- batch analysis, similar to what was already existing
- single file analysis, similar to the current match analysis above
- smart analysis: single file analysis of the most recent file of a
directory (presumably where the user saves its exported matches
when playing online).
Feature to show how the player's GNU error rate has evolved throughout
the player's history, as provided by the database records.
The above "one click analysis" features have added two more buttons to
the toolbar, and this could make it too wide for some screens. Using an
icons-only toolbar allows to work around this issue ; every button has a
tooltip and the settings are autosaved.
Improvement the the existing (but almost undocumented and only available
from the CLI) possibility to always show a list of players at the bottom
of the board
Other miscellaneous improvements:
Much more extensive Japanese translation.
Many bug fixes.
