We are pleased to announce the general release of ICC Dasher, a new Windows program for connecting and playing on the Internet Chess Club. It is an alternative to the popular BlitzIn client. You can download ICC Dasher 1.0 for free from: https://www.chessclub.com/helpcenter/interface/Dasher.html There is a lot of cool stuff here, including many things that were on the wish lists for BlitzIn. Some examples: * Chess engine for off-line play and examine-mode analysis * Nice new piece sets * Settings dialog allowing lots of customization * Preview of board display options * Tabbed console * Popup chat windows * Tournament interface * New examine mode markings * Figurine algebraic notation * Channels list * Profile window * Bughouse buttons * Contextual help * A skinned interface * Menu icons, larger toolbar buttons, and in general, a slicker look Thank you to everybody who participated in the open beta test.
