Vektor3 Chess Available for OS X
12:37 PM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Schubertit, the maker of Vanessa Chess, has recently released a new, Mac OS X-only chess program titled Vektor3. Touted as a "multi-document, multithreading chess program" that takes advantage of OS X's capabilities, Vektor3 allows players to open and work with several games at once, with each individual game's chess engine being able to compute moves simultaneously.

Vektor3 also caters to hardcore chess fans, offering an annotation editor that allows players to monitor the chess engine's game evaluations and also allows for the setting up of any legal situation for analysis. Players can also import and export games in PGN format, complete with diagrams, and use Vektor3 with the ExaChess chess database program.

Other features include customizable 2D chessboards, speech, Aqua interface, and an opening book. Vektor3 is available as a shareware download with a 30-day trial period. Users who wish to register can pay the $10 fee, or get it free if they're registered users of Vanessa Chess.
