  • Kvetka 3.28 released

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.

  • Addressed donations

    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!
