Hi, so why Stockfish is not yet in community ? The strongest open source chess engine...

upstream has dropped opening book support. opening should be handled by the gui now.

Auguste commented on 2013-11-27 06:20

of course i have no objection.

i secretly hope all aur packages i use can be moved to community someday. ;-)

Ok, thanks. I opened an issue here:

Would you mind if I moved this package to [community], btw?

sorry, i don't know. it's on their website. and i assumed they have the same license.

Hi. I'm considering making stockfish an official Arch Linux package, but I can not see which license the file is under. Is it freely available?

package is updated to use the new book.

the profile build is taken out, so that it builds again.

They have released the book version 2.3.1, and the code does not compile.

The source link in the PKGBUILD no longer works and they've released version 2.2.1 now.
