New version of chess PGN to TeX to PDF converter

OK, I’m shameful. After fighting with Scid’s exporter, and then correcting bugs in pgn2ltx’s source, I finally decided to take a look at that PGN file format. And guess what? It’s already composed of FEN notation. And guess what? that super-über cool new skaknew module for LaTeX gets its input as FEN!!

New chess website for Chess education/promotion

BNPParibas in association with the FIDE created a new nicely done website (in french only). The goal of this website is to show the usefulness of chess to parents/teachers or schools. Children will also be happy to consult this website, there are cool games, and even a quiz, where one can win a sort of printable “diploma”. A really nice initiative.
