New web interface for endgame databases

It has been long since I last wrote something here. However, the endgame work is still on going. I have found someone to implement a new web interface for the endgame databases. The users can now move chess pieces with click-and-click action. You can even play endgames with databases or just watch the databases played out by itself. You can see an example here:

This is just the preview version, so it is not without bugs and without explanation on how to use it. Hope the readers of this blog can try it out first and contribute feedback before I make somewhat more formal announcement and put together index pages with links to this new interface. Full Chinese version and better documentation will follow later.

Have fun!
