Kvetka 4.0 released!
A new version of program is released - Kvetka 4.0. Its interface remains almost unchanged, however internally we have implemented several substantial improvements, especially in "Games" and "Moves" windows. Most important of them are:
- Working with groups of games. They can be deleted, saved, their tags can be edited altogether and so on.
- New columns "Plies", "Notation" and "ECO" can be displayed in "Games" window. They are defined by the game itself.
- New look of comments in "Moves" window. Now they are displayed inline and can contain diagrams.
- We started adjusting all Kvetka's windows for various resolutions of displays.
- Other minor changes, improvements and bugfixes.

You can also change an active player at the placing figures stage by clicking on the area above or below the board. In addition, we added the newest, 8th version of Stockfish chess engine to Kvetka. It was recently proved to be the strongest engine in the world. [2016-12-14]

Kvetka's tutorial in English
All Kvetka tutorial web pages are now translated into English. At the moment you can access them via this link. Starting from the next version of Kvetka it will also be accessible via its main menu. Since we are not native English speakers, some of the phrases in the tutorial may look a bit awkward, we apologise for that in advance. On the other hand we welcome any corrections from the users, which can be sent to us either via the guestbook or directly to our email. [2016-10-10]
Kvetka 3.28 released
A new version of program is released - Kvetka 3.28. Now it supports online games from lichess.org. We decided to support only the finished games from there, because otherwise Kvetka would have become a handy tool for cheaters. Also new hotkeys were added which allow to make any recommended move or variation, not only the main one. Finally, a series of bugfixes has been made, most of them are related with saving huge game bases such that not all the games are stored in the memory. [2016-08-17]
