This is the previous stable version of glaurung and also a very strong chess engine.
Glaurung 1.2.1 is probably slightly weaker than glaurung 2, but has a much more entertaining style of play.
It uses the UCI (universal chess interface), for chess engines as communication protocol.
This means to play against it, you have to use an UCI capable interface,
like knights or an xboard adapter like polyglot.

2009-08-31 -
- added a polyglot startup script (i.e. for use with xboard)
simply typing "xboard -fcp glaurung121-polyglot" (engine = white) 
or "xboard -scp glaurung121-polyglot" (engine = black) will work
2009-08-27 -
- modified startup
The two scripts /usr/bin/glaurung121 and /usr/bin/xglaurung121
both check if there is a $HOME/.glaurung121 directory
containing an opening book and a polyglot ini-file;
if not, the files are copied from /usr/share/glaurung121.
In this way every user can run a "personalized" configuration
as all of the configuration stuff is handled within $HOME.
2009-08-26 -
- fixed wrong error message in xboard-script if polyglot is not installed
2009-08-24 -
- first build for openSUSE, version 1.2.1
