KVETKA – is a tiny and nice program for viewing and analysing chess games. First of all it was created for convenient viewing chess games from Internet.
Kvetka means "flower" in Belarusian language.
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]
We created a new more advanced guestbook. Now it has much more features. But what is more important, unlike the previous version, it does not contain irritating ad blocks and it can be viewed in English. Look at the new guestbook. [2016-08-11]

Quite often we had to reject your feature requests because adding them would have required a lot of time and we have no enough resources, especially for free. Now we make an experiment which will hopefully solve this issue: we introduce the donations for the particular features. As soon as the required sum is collected we will start implementing the feature immediately. To start with, we have chosen two popular requests: chess gameplay and drawing arrows and marks on the board. If the experiment goes well more features will be added. So, if you want to see some feature in Kvetka, go for it! [2016-03-08]
