The next item to implement for Kanazawa is a small opening book. Last year I played with MeinStein and got outplayed from the beginning because of an opening book by one of the Chinese programs. So I decided to implement a simple book.
Development will be on a low level, due to organizing the Euro Chess Tournament last week and an exam next week Wednesday. But I got already some of the necessary documentation. Like the information from the article about last years tournament in Pamplona.
For next year it is clear that there has to be done a lot more then this simple implementation of the game. Maybe it will even be an iPad game by then. Who knows.
